Even though the UW and UE sides are crawling with so many celebrities it's like the wax figures escaped from Madam Tussands in Times Square and headed uptown, I wasn't expecting to see LaBute, so I quickly Googled him to see if he lives on the UWS and sure enough... the photo on this post is from the Twitter feed of a guy who bumped into LaBute at an UWS movie theater a year ago. LaBute is on the left but the photo is cropped so you cannot see his prodigious avoirdupois.
Normally I wouldn't mention someone being overweight - I've certainly had my own up and down struggles with weight over the years - but I just can't stand LaBute - and not for his work so much as his contemptible attitude which I noted six years ago on this blog:
LaBute isn't only angry, he's also a gigantic self-confessed douchebag:And that makes a side of LaBute happy. "It's part of my makeup," he says, "to ruin a perfectly good day for people."
I'm happy to report that LaBute failed to ruin a perfectly good day for me, at least. This time.
