'American Beauty' Star Allegedly Stiffs AmEx

8/30/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wes BentleyWes Bentley, the dude who became quasi-famous for calling a plastic bag "beautiful," is seriously in the hole with American Express -- and now they're suing him for over $90,000.

According to the suit, Bentley opened a Gold Account with AmEX, charged up $92,738.86, then never paid it off.

The card company wants their damn money back -- plus reimbursement for interest, attorney's fees and other costs.

Stupid idiot they also made the interest rate way high no matter your credit score mine went to 15.24% and my score is high 700's

They should sue your ass and that 92k should be 125k for them having to sue your stupid ass

Confused    

we should all stop paying our credit card bills and see what happens. I'm guessing the gov't will bail them out, and we'll all have more cash. Win/win.

It never fails to amaze me when people can be rich/famous and be broke, can't pay their rent/mortgage, etc.

Feature film actors generally have it made compared to Joe Public working 40+ hours a week.
