Piven -- Fishing for Sympathy

1/12/2009 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jeremy Piven is in the deep stuff with his ex-producers after bailing on his Broadway show, but he's still sticking to that mercury-poisoning tale.

He tells Fox News he found he had a heart rate of 47 and his mercury levels from eating too much fish over the years was "off the charts." Piven says he's smoothed things over with his ex-co-stars, who were not at all shy about sharing their displeasure with JP publicly.

Meanwhile, it was unclear whether Piven ate the entrée at last night's Golden Globes –- sea bass.

What an untalented douche.....he seemed healthy enough to show up for an awards ceremony,I guess his "illness" prevents him from working but not partying!!

Yeah right, he is so full of s*&t......Mercury poisioning doesn't seem to have slowed down his partying any, so I guess one can still drink and party, but not act on stage with this "illness."

Maybe his big, fat ego has finally caught up with him. He seems like a deplorable jerk.

Jeremy "Do you KNOW who I am" Piven makes my skin crawl. I just don't understand how he rates even the tiniest bit of celbrity.
He is such a creep.
