Page Legally Drops Her Father's Surname


Men In Black Rip Torn Geraldine Page

Men In Black star Rip Torn's actress daughter has dropped his name and adopted her mother's because she feels more connected to the late Geraldine Page.

Angelica Page was born a Torn but she has legally changed her name to honour her mum.

And she tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "As I get older I have more and more in common with my mother and less in common with the Torn side of the family.

"I'm the only daughter of my mother; I have twin brothers. My father has some other children from different marriages, so he's got a big gaggle and I just felt nobody was carrying my mother's name on and there were a lot of Torns.

Torn's Daughter Drops Famous Name


Angelica Torn Rip Torn

Actress/director Angelica Torn has changed her surname as she no longer speaks to her father Rip Torn.

The theatre star has legally registered her surname as Page, after her mother Geraldine Page, insisting she wants to "honour" the screen legend and distance herself from her famous dad.

She tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, "The time has come to now honour my mother by taking her last name from this point on in my life. In the last several months I've come to realise that my father and I just don't see eye to eye on so many things, and I've found I no longer have anything in common with him."

Simon Pegg Unsure About Seth Rogen For Paul


Simon Pegg Rip Torn Seth Rogen Shaun Of The Dead Star Trek

Simon Pegg didn't have Seth Rogen in mind for alien movie 'Paul'.

The British actor - who stars opposite an extra-terrestrial voiced by Seth in the comedy road-trip film - originally wanted an older star for the role but was convinced by a studio someone younger might work better.

He said: "We had older actors in mind - somebody like Rip Torn.

Torn's Lawyers Negotiating Plea Bargain


Rip Torn

Veteran actor Rip Torn's lawyers are negotiating a plea deal with prosecutors to put an end to his legal woes after he was caught breaking into a Connecticut bank in January (10).

The Men In Black star was found sprawled on the floor of the Litchfield Bancorp building in his hometown of Salisbury late at night, clutching a loaded revolver while reportedly drunk. He told cops he thought the building was his home.

The 79 year old, real name Elmore Rual Torn, was arrested and charged with a string of offences, including carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief.

He checked himself into a rehabilitation facility in New York after being released on bail and pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

Rip Torn's daughter has opened up about the actor's struggle with alcohol abuse, days after he was arrested for allegedly breaking into a Connecticut bank following a drinking binge.

Freddy Got Fingered Review


Zero

Hey, you know what's funny? False accusations of child molestation. That's just the most hilarious way to get back at your father for being mean to you because you're a hopeless screw-up. At least, that's what Tom Green seems to think.

Green is that MTV personality who takes a video camera out into the world to record himself accosting embarrassed strangers and performing gross-out stunts for the amusement of easily entertained viewers. He wrote, directed and stars in "Freddy Got Fingered," a lose collection of sub-par Green gags orbiting around a 28-year-old unemployed nitwit whose dad (Rip Torn) hates him because, well, he's a worthless human being who goes out of his way to make Dad ashamed of him.

Aww, poor Tom. He's so misunderstood.

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story Review


Unbearable

Can somebody please stop Ben Stiller?

Since becoming a box-office draw with "There's Something About Mary," the guy has been a horrendous ham, devouring scenery with an eye-bugging, eyebrow-stitching schtick so stale and predictable that his last dozen movies have all included the same gag: slow-motion scenes of Stiller madly mugging while dancing, or running, or playing the titular game of schoolyard pain and humiliation in "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story."

The only variation in his on-screen persona is that sometimes he's an irritatingly neurotic, hapless chump ("Along Came Polly," "Envy," "Meet the Parents") and other times he's an irritatingly arrogant, mock-sexy-pouting, self-obsessed moron ("Starsky & Hutch," "Zoolander").
