Did Pauly Shore REALLY 'Pull a Bale?'
New footage from MovieSet of 'Bio-Dome' star Pauly Shore pulling a Christian Bale-style freakout on the set of his new movie has us scratching our heads. When producers are heard chatting on-set, the actor loses his cool, shouting profanities and demanding, "Have you ever been on a f---in' set before?" But, as TMZ points out, Shore has used a hoax for publicity before. Watch the video below (WARNING: strong language) and decide for yourself.
In 2006, Shore tricked fans with a comedy club stunt in Odessa, Texas. The comedian exchanged heated words with hecklers at his stand-up show, with one man defending fellow audience members. Shore responded, "Well, first off, shut the f*** up f***ing hoss." A video of the burly man punching Shore in the face was an instant Internet hit - but the whole thing was a hoax, TMZ reported at the time.
The Odessa Police Department claimed that an officer "had met with Mr. Shore prior to his set, and was asked to participate in the skit. The officer stated that the skit went as designed and that Shore was not injured in the designed skit."
Of course, the most famous on-set tantrum in recent history - and possibly the inspiration for Shore's outburst - was not a hoax at all. Christian Bale's profanity-laced rant on the set of 'Terminator: Salvation' was all too real. The actor apologized publicly for his misbehavior, which was directed toward the director of photography when he walked into a shot. Bale told KROQ 106.7 just after the incident, "I was way out of order. I acted like a punk, I regret that."
