Two New York thespians in town and starring opposite each other in an autumn release were spotted at Bristol Farms in West Hollywood by an ardent fan. At the time they asserted they were “just friends”. A week later his wife arrived at the Hotel Bel-Air while the friendly star was in the shower. Responding to the chirp of a telephone text the wife located the phone in the sheets of his bed and was astonished to see a nude portrait of the other New York thespian preening in front of a mirror in a vaguely familiar marble lined bath – as it turned out in the adjoining suite.
The concierge returned the shattered iPhone (it looked like it had been stomped with a stiletto heel) to the actor in question and the wife initiated divorce proceedings within the hour.
