'American Beauty' Star Allegedly Stiffs AmEx

Wes 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.
