This actor is A list.
Academy Award winner/nominee.
Considered a great actor with a history of some questionable hookups that had long term implications.
Generally considered to be an a-hole.
Also landed a role in a sure fire billion dollar box office movie.
A couple of weeks ago I was talking to someone about the place where our actor is from.
We had been talking about other celebrities from this place because the person lived there for most of their life.
At one point he brings up the actor’s name and does that thing where they assume you know the story.
I kind of turned my head and needed it repeated.
I actually set down my booze for a second because the one liner was crazy.
I wanted the whole story.
The actor came back after not being there for awhile and acting like a big shot and there were women wanting him but he wanted this one woman. She had a boyfriend and had no interest in the actor.
For three days he kept bugging her and bugging her.
After the third day of this, the actor has the boyfriend beat up to the point where he had to be admitted to the hospital.
Permanently damaged his jaw.
He then had these same guys find the woman and dragged her from the supermarket where she worked.
The guys brought her to the actor at his hotel.
He raped her and beat her for an entire night.
When she attacked him when he was not looking he grew even more violent and then told the guys to dump her somewhere and he didn’t care whether she lived or not.
So, they dumped her in the middle of nowhere.
Literally 20 miles from any phones or homes.
Somehow she made it out to a road and flagged someone down and they helped her.
She went to the hospital and the police but the police wouldn’t touch her case.
Newspapers there wouldn’t report it.
No one did.
Her family tried.
The boyfriend tried.
Nobody would do anything.
This doesn’t mean our actor is welcome back there any longer though.
They all know, but they just didn’t want to do what was right.
