Gerard Depardieu - arguably, France's best and best-known actor - admitted recently that he drinks a wee bit.
"I can absorb 12, 13, 14 bottles" of wine "per day," he said. "But I’m never totally drunk.”
On the other hand, he's never totally sober. Or coherent. Or intelligible.
This is a guy who's had quintuple bypass surgery too.
And he's had some interesting brushes with infamy. Here he is last year on The Graham Norton Show on BBC, talking about making an unauthorized pit stop on a commercial airliner. If nothing else, he found a use for his empties...
Looks like those knocks on the noggin on the playing field haven't hurt Peyton Manning any.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated very recently, he pretty much admitted that he bought up a bunch of Papa John's pizza shops - 21 of them, to be precise - in Colorado just before the state legalized marijuana to profit on the sale of the weed.
TMZ reported last year that sales in those Peyton pizza palaces were bringing in some big bucks since legalization. One shop's sales increased a whopping 25 percent.
In the interview, Peyton talked about his business plan: "There’s some different laws out here in Colorado," he said. "Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes. So when you come to a different place, you’ve kind of got to learn everything that comes with it."
Wait, that's another franchise he should have bought up...
While in the middle of a sex tape controversy involving her ex-boyfriend Hefe Wine, "Fancy" rapper Iggy Azalea has filed a lawsuit against him. The complaint is not about the alleged sexual footage Wine wants to sell. Iggy claims her former lover/producer stole music off her computer.
According to TMZ, Iggy says Wine unlawfully downloaded material from her laptop in 2009 when the two were living together in Atlanta. Wine had threatened to release an EP of Iggy's previously recorded tracks that he states would "shock the world."
Iggy is suing Wine to prevent the EP from coming out on the grounds the project was created from the music stolen from her computer. Iggy also refutes she signed a contract with Wine that gave him permission to release her work. She calls the document a forgery.
The Island Records artist has also threatened to sue the porn company Vivid Entertainment over attempting to purchase and distribute her apparent sex tape with Wine. According to reports, Wine is still planning to release the footage.
