Cusack and Piven Feuding, Screw This I Hate the World

January 10, 2007

I’m really hoping this is a joke, because if not the world has gone truly mad. Piven and Cusack, buddies from way back, are now on the outs.

If this is true it’s worse than any divorce or Trump-Rosie nonsense because it’s just two guys who should have no reason to ever quarrel, you know?

Sigh. Here are the relevant quotes from this article:

“No comment. I mean, you could fill in the blank, I bet,” the 41-year-old actor says when asked how Cusack has handled Piven’s recent success. “It just says so much about a person if he has space for other people’s success,” he says.

“I have always been so proud of my friends’ success. I own that proudly because I come by it naturally. I was raised on that spirit of collaboration. … You start getting into trouble in life when you start comparing and contrasting your life to anyone else’s. You don’t win when you do that.”

So Cusack is jealous of Piven? This sounds too loony to be true, and it could be a practical joke. Yes, that must be it, because I’ve never had a guy friend knock me for being the biggest writer on the planet, though clearly that’s the case.

If it is true, guys, c’mon. Let’s not let the system get in the way of a few beers and some laughs. Jobs come and go, women hate us, we gots to stick together my brothers.
