Cu­sack: Film biz is like a whore­house

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

GRUMPY ac­tor John Cu­sack has com­pared Hol­ly­wood to a “lu­natic whore­house”.

The Grosse Pointe Blank and Iden­tity star says no-one looks after the young thesps when they first ar­rive in Tinseltown, mean­ing it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore they end up on the scrapheap.

And the 48-year-old says it’s “im­pos­si­ble” not to think the movie business is a load of old shite.

Cu­sack, who stars in new flick Maps To The Stars, said: “Peo­ple would look after you when I was a kid.

“There were good peo­ple in the business. When I came to LA Rob Reiner said, ‘Come stay at my house’. He taught me.

“I worked with Pa­cino. Pa­cino would talk to you and men­tor you.

“Now it’s dif­fer­ent. The cul­ture just eats young ac­tors up and spits them out.

“You can’t make it up. It’s a whore­house and peo­ple go mad.

“Why wouldn’t you have con­tempt for the movie business?

“It sucks most of the time.”
