I saw the Jeremy Piven “walking his Emmys” photo posted with all the “what a dick” commentary not far behind.
Then this video popped up on my tumblr feed (FYI, popgurls tumblr here) with the explanation:
So, my friend Eric just got back from a comedy shoot he did with Jeremy Piven, and as he was editing some of the photos, this happenedâ€¦
PS- the shoot was for a commercial, but notice how quick the media spin it into him being a douchebag. This was only hours ago and itâ€™s all over tumblr
PPS- Eric reports that Jeremy Piven was one of the coolest guys heâ€™s ever worked with
Now, it’s not that Piven hasn’t done his fair share in the past to prove himself quite the ass. But it’s interesting to see how the media gets a glimpse of something, feels no need to get the actual story behind it because they want to be the first to expose it and spins it into something completely different. Can you imagine the damage it does when it’s actually about something important?
