Hamster Day

Afternoon

10/5/2008 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Al Pacino may be a vicious killer on screen, but in real life he fiercely protects the rodents, much to the dismay of Beverly D'Angelo.


Our spies served up a classic for us yesterday. Location: PETCO, West Hollywood. Event: Hamster Race. Participants: Five hamsters, as well as the Pacino/D'Angelo twins.

A crowd watched breathlessly as the hamsters were each placed on a plastic track. The critters were somewhat disoriented as the crowd cheered them on. This began to alarm Pacino, who worried out loud the hamsters "are gonna have a heart attack." D'Angelo fired back, "Relax, they're just hamsters!" Now we know why it didn't work out -- they even bicker during hamster races.

In the end, the twins finished second and third. There were whispers that the winner could have been a ringer, because the little girl brought her rodent to PETCO in what looked like a professional pink and green striped carrying case.

Catch Pacino in his latest release, "Scent of a Hamster."

Beverly D'Angelo is a heartless idiot. I bet Pacino regrets the day he met her.

I just love Al. Yes, he does love animals. All animals. In a book "Conversations w/ Pacino"... there was one part where his daugher was concerned about a bee that looked sick or injured. Al went over with a piece of paper, and picked up the bee and put the bee in the flower bed. And told his daughter, "we'll put him in with the flowers, and maybe he'll feel better". He didn't kill it, he helped it. When Beverly found out (Olivia told her), she freaked out and started yelling at him, that he should be teaching her to FEAR bees. He didn't know he did anything wrong. I felt so sorry for him when I read that. She is such a bitch!!!

I had to comment -
I mean, the stock market and economy actually had me crying a little while ago. So, I switched from msn to tmz. I read this, and really got a good laugh. I could just hear Pacino saying about the hamsters having a heart attack - I think that is hilarious......thanks TMZ.
