And he doesn't care what he looks like, according to The Sun, London's daily newspaper. "My look is all about the shock factor. I love all the attention and stares I get in the street. I welcome the hate — it just means more attention. And if anything, it just spurs me on to get more work done."
Good money chasing bad, folks. Especially since the guy looks more like the Octomom than the NorthWestmom.
It seemed like a silly hoax that North Korea was actually behind the Sony pictures cyberattack because they wanted to stop the release of a Seth Rogan/James Franco movie. But it's all true. U.S. officials have determined that North Korea orchestrated the massive hack and release of sensitive documents. And they're calling the attack, "far more destructive than any seen before on American soil." It'll be interesting to see how the government responds to this. President Obama's only statement so far is that people should still go to the movies. But we know how Sony responded. They actually pulled "The Interview" yesterday. And they said they currently have no plans to release it in ANY format, including Video on Demand.

Former "7th Heaven" star Stephen Collins issued a statement to "People" magazine admitting that he molested three underage girls in 1973, 1982 and 1994. He called his actions in those three instances "terribly wrong" and said, "I deeply regret the mistakes I've made and any pain I have caused these three women. I admit to, apologize for and take responsibility for what I did.'' Collins said he apologized to one of the women 15 years after the fact and she was "extraordinarily gracious." But he hasn't approached the other two because he learned in therapy that it could "make things worse for them by opening old wounds." In addition to his statement, Collins will sit down for an interview with Katie Couric, which will air tomorrow night on "20/20".
