Someone on another thread mentioned that Brody had developed a drug problem. I have not read anything about that online and hope that is not true. What have you heard?
Adrien Brody and Drugs

Hadn't heard this but am anxious to know. I don't understand how an actor like him can do something so fantastic like The Pianist yet continue to do such crap. He must be fucked up. He should have a better career. I'm shocked he's never even done any theater. I've always believed he was a great actor. I think his performance in The Pianist is one of the best performances I've ever seen.
What a pity.

I agree about his performance in the pianist. Incredible. It is actually one of my favorite films. I haven't heard much about him in years. I know that he used to dabble with coke and lots of weed (as did everyone else) back when he was dating the trashy groupie woman.

I hope he's not on coke. With a nose like that he could inhale Peru!

It would explain why he mostly hasn't worked for the past decade.

which trashy woman? Wow, if true, i'm sure he must be almost broke by now. i'm sure he'll surface for more crappy roles for $$$.

He is starring in the History Channel's upcoming 4 hour biopic of Houdini.
Still-single 41 year old Brody is one of those men who took their Mothers to the Oscars. I heard he liked black men, but I could be wrong.
Musto used to work with his Mom at the Village Voice; he should chime in anonymously.

I think his best was Hollywoodland. He is a great actor.

This is the groupie he dated for five years (see link). She was a major coke head at the time.

well, if he's been with that trashy rock chick who probably has spread her legs for anyone famous, he's probably got herpes.

I love the way he dresses. He's one of those guys who looks fantastic in clothes. By that, I mean some guys just have a way of making clothes look good - he's one of them.

I'm curious if he's on coke, too. And what his address is. Would anyone happen to know these two facts? No special reason, I'm just curious. Being nosey, you know.

He must have been desperate for attention/money when he recently did those electric razor commercials with Andre 3000.

I think he tried the Nicolas Cage track, which would make sense as both of are rather "unorthodox" looking, both tried to cash in on their Oscar win by doing a bunch of action films and go movie star. It worked for Cage, at least for a while. It didn't happen for Brody--he should've stuck to small prestige pictures. He was heartbreaking in "Summer of Sam"

He was also brilliant in the little indie film "Restaurant." In that he played a young waiter and struggling playwright who exclusively dates black women but carries latent racism towards black men. Lauryn Hill had a cameo role in the film as the ex-girlfriend that dumped him.

This commercial is so depressing for an Oscar winner. Must be drugs.

I remember his ad for an expensive loafer, Ermenegilda Zegna I think, and thought it somehow seemed a bit desperate. His image didn't fit the product. He was great in the Summer of Sam as others have said.

He was rally good as John Turturo in Summer of Sam

He's very hard to cast given his looks. He is the F. Murray Abraham of the 21st century.

When he's not wearing wife beaters and the usual hip hop gear. When he was working on the Pianist promotion and the Oscar campaign (and he worked hard at it since Polanski couldn't come to the states), he was always impeccably dressed. He had some sort of a contract with Zegna and appeared in a lot of fashion shoots. After the Oscars, he reverted to the hoodies and the hip hop look. It works for teens and some twenty somethings (barely), not on guy in his '30s or '40s.
Still, we haven't gotten any real gossip about Brody and drugs. Just that he used to date a groupie and does movies and commercials for money. Surely, someone has a story.

I like him too but i thought the oscar would never elevate him to A list status. 10 years after his win he continues to work in films and tv. And i think he is working now more than he would of i believe if he hadnt won. Unconventional looking yes but i find him really hot. Love that hair and body.

There were some horrible anecdotes on Jeff Palmer's blog about partying in a limo with "AB." Sorry I can't remember the url of that blog...but I'm sure SOMEONE on DL will have it bookmarked, at least.

I think it's hilarious that Robin Quivers and the male stooge are laughing at Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood for being fat in r30's video, given that they're both even fatter.

I have no idea about his drug use.His greatest crime is that he's not especially good looking. Even with the oscar win he was never going to be a leading man in mainstream movies. It probably guaranteed him work for several years, but he was never going to a be a star. And as the years pass the good offers will probably get further and further apart.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||12/16/2013|
R38 Nah, I disagree. He's classically good looking: tall, sinewy, symmetrical features, great bone structure, bedroom eyes. The only anomaly is his large nose, and it merely makes him look more soulful and interesting.

Mainstream movies aren't made for us r39, they're generally made for heterosexuals and he doesn't really inspire lust in most women. His big nose which men don't seem to notice, appears to be an issue for women. And young women seem to have no idea who he is.

With that big honker of a nose, I can imagine how much he needs to snort. He was excellent in "The Pianist" despite his nose getting in the way.

He only won the Oscar because the other nominees (all older, much better actors) split the vote. Adrien squeaked by with a (surprise) win. So...meh.

R51 I still don't buy the concept of "vote-splitting." If he got the most votes, he got the most votes.
