[ # ] Richard Simmons didn’t give Pauly Shore ‘permission’ to do his biopic 
January 17th, 2024 under Pauly Shore, Richard Simmons

Pauly Shore has been saying that he wants to make and star in a Richard Simmons biopic for a while, so he went ahead and did it.

The comedian even says he reached out to the Weight Saint for permission to make the film. He just didn’t wait to get an answer from Simmons.

Today, Shore announced, “Pauly Shore plays Richard Simmons in biopic. Hey guys, here’s where we’re at in the process. Check out the video. I’ll see you this weekend at #Sundance with @jakevlewis. ‘The Court Jester’ short premiers at @thecabinparkcity this Friday, Jan 19 at 8pm PT and then the world will be able to watch it too. World premier Saturday, Jan 20 at 6am PT on the @lewis_brothers YouTube channel. Can’t wait for you guys to see it!”

After the press picked up the story, Simmons, who has become a recluse, made a rare public statement, “You may have heard they may be doing a movie about me with Pauly Shore.

“I have never given my permission for this movie. So don’t believe everything you read.

“I no longer have a manager, and I no longer have a publicist.

“I just try to live a quiet life and be peaceful. Thank you for all your love and support.”

With that, I think that Shore should pull the short from the festival. But I have a feeling he won’t. I mean, how would The Weasle feel if someone made an unauthorized biopic about him? I am pretty sure it wouldn’t be pretty.

As much as I would love to see Simmons come out of hiding, I think we should leave him alone and let him have his life as he wishes.
