OSCAR-winning actor Adrien Brody is eager to shower his parents with lavish
gifts since his movie success - but they're refusing his gestures.
Brody picked up the coveted best actor ACADEMY AWARD last year (03) for
his efforts in The Pianist and has since been able to command a higher
pay-cheque for his work.
But while his parents - lauded New York photographer SYLVIA PLACHY and
retired teacher ELLIOT BRODY - are happy for his success, they don't want to be
showered with extravagant gifts.
At one point, Brody had planned on buying his mother a loft in Manhattan's
Soho area and a country house for his dad - but they both refused.
Brody says, "My parents are not very materialistic. They don't want the
things I've offered them. They're content with the right things."
