In his new book, “Jason Priestley: A Memoir” he reveals that when he was an unknown actor he shared digs with another struggling thespian – Brad Pitt.
According to Rob Shuter of VH-1’s “The Gossip Table,” Pitt gifted his pal with an unlikely gift – a Bible. Their gang of friends had a Christmas party one year and there were bottles of booze and cartons of cigarettes being exchanged.
But Pitt who had just returned from his hometown of Springfield, Missouri had brought back for each of his pals a Bible. Each one was personally engraved with their names next to a small gold cross. Although the group was surprised by the religious offering , Pitt was thrilled and couldn’t stop grinning.
He also reveals that Pitt was having an affair with his “Thelma and Louise” co-star Geena Davis who had recently split from her husband Jeff Goldblum.
The “90210” actor does not share such fond memories of his co-star Tori Spelling’s husband. When he introduced himself to Dean McDermott, the fellow Canadian refused to shake his hand and acted aggressive and rude.
Priestley adds that he has been asked many times to appear on Spelling’s numerous reality shows but so far he, “hasn’t been able to find the time.” Wonder why?
