Uggie dishes on Reese Witherspoon, puts paws in cement

Uggie, the adorable Jack Russell who starred in The Artist, has been extremely busy for a pooch who’s retiring from the movie biz. Not only is he set to release an autobiography, but he’s been invited to put his paws in cement at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, alongside those of legendary performers such as Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe. “Uggie: My Story,” co-written by human biographer Wendy Holden, will be released in October. In the highly-anticipated tome, Uggie dishes on working with the likes of Reese Witherspoon, his Water for Elephants co-star, whom he calls “the love of my life” and according to a press release, features “a candid look at his private demons and his life as a felon.” Uggie will arrive by fire truck at Grauman’s on June 25 at 10 a.m. to leave an imprint of his paws for eternity. During the ceremony, he’ll be presented with a cake in the shape of a fire hydrant.

    Anybody who spends money buying this book has some serious issues. What a sad way to milk this for all its worth

    To Alex – where’s your sense of fun and humour?
    Personally, I can’t wait to read this book as it sounds like it will not only be funny but also provide an “escape” from the humdrum of daily life with all of its trials and tribulations! Life can only be survived with a good sense of humour!
