Random stories like this always appear during a slow week, but Fox has a piece today laying out how incredibly cheap some celebrities can be. They mention the lawsuit filed by a stylist against notorious jackass Jamie Foxx after he didn’t pay for work she did dressing him for awards shows and press junkets, but the article is mainly about celebrities who don’t tip in restaurants and bars. Bill Cosby tipped $3 on a $375 meal, Ricki Lake tipped $8 from $142.50 check (even after having her dessert comped) and Sean Penn didn't tip a dime on a $450 meal in New Orleans. Shockingly, Kirsten Dunst makes the list as well. Fox says:
“The tangle of fame and fortune can also result in terrible tippers," said Eliza Pharrell, an assistant manager at a high-profile New York restaurant. "For instance, Kirsten Dunst came through and ran up a $233 bill and left without even the smallest gratuity."
Kirsten Dunst is exactly what an alien would be like if an alien came to earth and tried to blend in. They wouldn't know about our earth customs like tipping. Or dental care. This is why she doesn't tan, I bet. Her world has three suns and ours isn't strong enough for her cold clammy skin. I heard that one guy saw her eat a mouse one time. She just picked it up by it's tail and dropped it in her mouth whole. It was still alive and everything, kicking and squeaking. Swear to god, man.
