Black Convinced Piven Hates Him

JACK BLACK is convinced fellow actor JEREMY PIVEN is still holding a grudge against him for winning the role of a record store employee in HIGH FIDELITY. Black landed the role of BARRY in the 2000 movie much to the chagrin of Piven, who the KING KONG star claims recently went out of his way to sabotage his networking at a recent premiere - six years later. Black told HOWARD STERN on his Sirius radio show, "(I was talking to a director when Piven) stepped in and all of a sudden he was talking to the director and I was standing there facing the back of his head. "I was like, 'Whoa, dude! What are you doing? You just cut me off!' He turned around and there was this strange, awkward tension." However, a spokesperson for ENTOURAGE star Piven insists he has no bad blood with Black: "He loves Jack Black."
