      Chris Farley was one of the most lovable Saturday Night Live characters of all time. I didn’t realize just how lonely and sad he actually was. This E! True Hollywood story really depicted the life behind the actor who was known for his crazy antics.

      The show covered his rise to stardom, and revealed several things that I didn’t know about the guy. For instance, he was very much

      into philanthropy.

      But not in the way you might imagine. He went to mass every month, and he often visited nursing homes where he spent a lot of time with the elderly.

      One of the persons interviewed for the special on Chris revealed that he was in fact very good with elderly persons. I think this is perhaps because he felt a kinship with them.

      Older people in ...

      • those kinds of facilities tend to be lonely people. And Chris probably felt that he could share his humor with them and bring them some joy.

        What the special also revealed was Chris’ penchant for booze and drugs. Like many SNL actors before him, he hid his pain behind his humor.

        But for Chris, he always felt a bit left out because he was large. He was so self-conscious

        about his size that he used it to hide how he really felt.

        I also didn’t know that he had little luck with the ladies. Women apparently found him attractive.

        But he was so self-conscious, that he would ruin his potential experiences. Thus, he was always ordering hookers and call-girls.

        I felt that this particular story was really sad. I hate knowing that Chris was such an unhappy person.

    What movie was mentioned that Chris Farley was to do, as well as John Belushi and John Candy but the movie never happened…
    Rumba says :

    I think, you are taliking about the movie “Atuk” (”Grandfather”), which intended to be a film adaptation of the novel.
