U.S. comedian-turned-actor Dane Cook knew his career was taking off when he became the subject of malicious Internet gossip.
The Stuck On You star maintains the web hearsay surrounding his private life is amusing, but believes Internet reports should rarely be trusted.
He says, "You haven't made it in Hollywood until someone says you're gay. I got that one a few years ago.
"Last week, I got an email asking me if I was dead. There was some website claiming that I'd died in New Zealand while waterfall jumping. The Internet is really informative - but it can also be just a huge bathroom wall."
