Richard Simmons Breaks LONG Public Silence -- To Blast Pauly Shore Biopic! Ha!

Richard Simmons Breaks LONG Publice Silence -- To Say He Ain’t Down With The Pauly Shore Biopic Based On Him!

Richard Simmons is SO unhappy about his likeness being thrust into the spotlight that he’s stepping back into it — to condemn a new biopic!

The iconic fitness coach has been living an extremely solitary life for the past decade. He’s been so out of the public eye that a movement rose up out of concern for his well-being! But news of a new film about his life was enough to bring him out again. Why? Well, maybe because it stars Pauly Shore! Yes, the We-heez-el himself. Is that who you’d want playing YOU? Here’s the teaser btw…

Like we said, Simmons was not happy!

On Wednesday, the 75-year-old returned to Facebook to speak out against the unanticipated biopic — which he makes clear he never signed off on. He wrote on his verified account:

“Hi Everybody! 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.”

Oof… Poor guy! He sounds pretty peeved. He added:

“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. Richard”

This is a big move for Richard as he’s really only spoken out once in the past several years — after TMZ produced a documentary about him. The man is not interested in being famous anymore!

In response, The Wolper Organization, whose parent company is Warner Bros. Discovery btw, said in a statement to multiple outlets:

“While we would love to have him involved, we respect his desire to privacy and plan to produce a movie that honors him, celebrates him and tells a dramatic story. We know he is deeply private and we would never want to invade that, how ever [sic] he is an amazing person, that changed millions of peoples lives and the effect he has had on the world needs to be recognized.”

A dramatic story starring Pauly Shore! What do YOU make of this situation?? Sound OFF in the comments down below.
