ok, we all have alot on our plate. Now we have to figure out how to deal with it. Actors are not resislant from reality. And from humanity. :(

Oh, yeah. I know how this works. He said some things the CAB DRIVER didn't like, so now we'll make him a felon. Money grubbing, at it's finest. The state see's a way to extract money form the celebrity, regardless of the fact his wife doesn't want him charged (probably because he's done no harm). He had a few too many drinks, needs to sleep it off, but the state see's a way to close the gap on the budget, so off to jail he goes, hopefully with a domestic violence charge.

dunno all the details but it looks like the cops maybe are not used to deal with a celebrity . I mean what did he do after all? wanted to get into a cab and the cops wanted to treat him like they are used to treat people over there? barking is not always the proper way to deal with regular people or (in this case) with an Academy Award winner. what are the charges? not doing what the local cops wanted him to do? one more thing: if they keep scaring away movie stars then they'll go somewhere else to shoot movies , no?

I would say actors in general are delicately vulnerable people with fragile egos that can be easily bruised if not treated with kid gloves. Nicholas has been through a lot lately and get the feeling Alice, being a wifish, was being critical of his drinking spree that night.

If his wife being a pain and acting up, he should divorce her and send her back to Thailand. She should take it or leave it without complaining or no more greencard for her. Beggars can't choose.

Everyone seems to be missing the point. Nic may have a
problem, so he should not drink.
