The Kid Ready to Leave the Picture?

9/26/2008 12:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He was talking like it would be his last visit to Mr. Chow -- so if 78-year-old legendary film producer Robert Evans wants to go out wearing velour track pants, ain't nobody gonna tell him no!

Robert Evans' #1 Sicko Fan    

Who is more handsome? No one. Who is responsible for more successful movies while running a studio? No one. who has a bigger heart than most Hollywood moguls? No one. ROBERT EVANS IS A TRUE ORIGINAL WHO ANYONE WHO KNOWS HIM ... LOVES HIM TO PIECES. He's the last original and I will forever admire, respect and adore him. All of you haters are jealous of his tireless success.

Robert Evans' #1 Sicko Fan    

I only wish I had the opportunity to meet, marry and try my best to stay that way to the King of Hollywood. Bob started his career as a radio personality and blossomed into an actor who blossomed into a very successful businessman. He and his brother Charles were owners of Evan Picone, an exclusive line of clothes for women. Heck, he was the first designer to get into ladies pants (hahaha). From there, after selling the business to Revlon and basking in his self made newfound success at The Beverly Hills Hotel swimming pool, Norma Shearer noticed his devistatingly good looks (that by the way, haven't been altered in any way) and decided he should play opposite James Cagney in "Man Of A Thousand Faces." You see, Norma Shearer - for all of you morons who have no idea of any movie history - was the widow of The Irving Thalburg. She was the deciding factor in who should play the youngest movie mogul in history. Yup. It was handsome Bob Evans.

Morons... Robert Evans has forgotten more than any of you idiots have ever learned. The next time you decide to pick fun at a legend who had the intelligence to save Paramount Pictures from being turned into an extension of the cemetary it bordered, get the book and educate yourself as to who he is. He's a bigger star than the countless thesbiens he started in this business. May I suggest you read his book "The Kid Stays In The Picture." His accomplishments are too vast to list. His life has been an epic that you negative losers only wish you could have experienced. Robert is the quintessential recountier who's rich true stories are what Hollywood is made of.
