Actor Corey Feldman was reportedly stabbed in the stomach last night in the San Fernando Valley by an attacker who quickly fled the scene. In a tweet, Feldman (who says he’s “OK” at the moment) described the experience in harrowing, all-caps detail, writing:
IM IN THE HOSPITAL! I WAS ATTACKED 2NITE! A MAN OPENED MY CAR DOOR & STABBED ME W SOMETHING! PLEASE SAY PRAYERS 4 US! 🙏🏼🙏🏼 THANK GOD IT WAS ONLY MYSELF & MY SECURITY IN THE CAR, WHEN 3 MEN APPROACHED! WHILE SECURITY WAS DISTRACTED, W A GUY A CAR PULLED UP & ATTACKED! I’M OK!
TMZ writes that Feldman “rushed to a hospital” immediately after being stabbed, where he reported the attack to the LAPD. (Per Feldman, they’re now investigating the attack as an “attempted homicide.”) Apparently, he believes the group responsible is the same one that’s been threatening him online recently. They call themselves “The Wolfpack.”
I’m sure we’ll know more details soon. In the meantime, a photo Feldman posted to his Twitter account suggests he’s at least well enough to continue vaping—and that’s good news.
Here’s what I contend is further proof that Cindy Adams is not the most reliable person when it comes to celebrity quotations. Does she take terrible notes during her conversations and then fill in the gaps with frog DNA, like the folks at InGen?
This purports to be an Imelda Staunton quote—one that has been run through the Rube Goldberg Machine that is Cindy Adams’ writing process:
“It’s about a woman who looks to retirement. It’s universal. Woman in her 60s. Usual feeling is it’s too late. But . . . is it . . . ? The feeling’s right — but then the unexpected happens. There’s misbehaving. She’s shocked. (Shocked? Why not ecstatic? Whythehell shocked?) It’s her journey, and she’s a hard nut to crack. There’s a flash of dancing then a surprise. The surprise is the element. You must see the movie as a whole. It’s not like ‘Ooohhh, this hurts . . . that hurts.’ It’s love in your 60s and 70s. It’s issues of isolation. It’s getting out. Not feeling sorry for yourself. It’s poignant. Reforming. Conquering issues later in life. Problems we must deal with. Relatable to many people’s lives. I’m 62. I look my age and I’m playing my own age.”
