REP ON JASON BIGGS' MONKEY BUSINESS: "NOT EVERYTHING ON THE INTERNET IS TRUE"
â€śJasonâ€™s in LA, had a meeting yesterday with his agents,â€ť the rep told Access. â€śNot everything on the Internet is true.â€ť
Earlier on Thursday, the UKâ€™s Telegraph reported that the star had gone sightseeing in Gibraltar, only to find himself face-to-face with a Barbary macaque that â€śtried to bite his face off.â€ť There are reportedly some 200 â€śBarbary apesâ€ť in Gibraltar â€“ a species native to North Africa and brought to the British territory by soldiers in the 18th century.
The erroneous report comes at the same time as the 10th anniversary of Biggsâ€™ breakthrough role, as a sex-challenged teenager who had a different close encounter â€“ with the title desert â€” in the comedy â€śAmerican Pie.â€ť
