Al Gore: movie star (of sorts)

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Speaking at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D., on Tuesday night, Al Gore — whose documentary film, "An Inconvenient Truth," scored two Oscar nominations yesterday — said he won’t let the star treatment change him. He said his model will be Rin Tin Tin, because the dog was the same after his TV show as he was before it.

In a private meeting earlier with students from Augustana and area high schools, one asked Gore how it felt to be a movie star, of sorts.

‘‘What do you mean 'of sorts?’ ’’ he fired back.
