Vanity Un-fair? The celebs strike back

The John Connolly / Bryan Burroughs fall-out begins.star.jpg

Variety carries the PR counter-offensive today, with some curiously worded defenses:

Cindy Guagenti, who reps Pitt and Sandler, said in a statement, Brad Pitt, Adam Sandler and the late Chris Farley have never once engaged the services of Anthony Pellicano, either directly or through a representative.”

OK. Now for the odd part:

“Guagenti added that none of the three thesps were contacted by the magazine before the story was published.”

We’re curious: How exactly would one go about contacting Farley these days? We recently went for a meeting, but he kept us waiting in the outer office all day.
