Cusack's thespian thieving
PageSix ^ | October 13, 2002 | By RICHARD JOHNSON with PAULA FROELICH and CHRIS WILSON

JOHN Cusack enjoys the perks of movie stardom. The affable actor is particularly fond of "celebrity looting." During an interview with Black Book magazine, Cusack pointed out a Roots clothing store and said, "We did celebrity looting there . . . They asked me to come over, patronize the store, pick up some stuff. So I took all my friends over, and we went straight for the $8,000 rack of leather coats and took a bunch. The managers, they get all nervous and twitchy. They freak. But you just look at 'em really hard and walk out. That's celebrity looting."

John Cusack and his family went (go?) to the Catholic Church at Northwestern University.

I'm hoping against hope that he somehow has managed to live a virtuous personal life as a famous actor, though maybe I already know the answer considering the Hollywood values that most, if not all of his movies, espouse.

Well, waking out of a store with an 8000 dollar leather jacket, and calling it 'looting' sure sounds virtuous...

I guess he got caught up in the whole fame head-trip...

He's low rent. Chicago calls him a brother, but I sure don't think that talking about being so brazen would go down in certain ward here, if you know what I mean.

"virtuous personal life" and stealing clothes that he most certainly can afford to buy...

and he's a Catholic....Cack!....that is embarassing....why are all the lefties in Hollywood Catholic? Why can't they be Baptist or Episcopal?


Oh the other night on Conan...Martin Sheen gave O'Brian a Saint Francis prayer card (cause we all know what a good Catholic Sheen is) and he talked about his son's new bride --he csaid he couldn't remember her name (seriously!) but he was so pleased that she is also a Catholic --- because we all know how important that is, you know Charlie Sheen is *so* concerned about his religion and all...

They are? I thought they were all Jews.

Some of them would have to be Catholic because a Jewish leftist can't marry another Jew...

John's sister, Joan, married a big shot Chicago lawyer who at the least grew up Catholic. Last I heard she was trying to maintain her primary residence in Chicago so she could have a fighting chance of having a good family life. She also insisted that her sitcom (now cancelled) was filmed in Chicago.

I still say the odds are terrible. Jeri Ryan ("Star Trek: The Next Gereration") was married to a Catholic from Chicago and converted to Catholicism herself. She also tried to keep her main residence in Chicago, but they divorced.

. . . and Martin Sheen's son got married in the yard of mansion instead of a church, and it wasn't his first marriage.

I've heard many instances of hollywood types going for photo shoots and then keeping and clothing or jewelry they used for the shoot.

Their sense of entitlement knows no bounds.

'Round these parts, celebrity looting is likely to be met with celebrity shooting.

cusack in interviews has pretty much described himself as a socialist, so is anyone surprised?

Ah, the looters and the moochers. A=A. *sigh* Add Cusack to my list of actors whose movies I won't watch. Geez, eventually I won't be able to do anything but sit around and watch Ben-Hur.
