In the interview, he described a one-time oral dalliance with Hudson in a bathhouse called Brooks Baths. Starting with, “You know who had a big penis? I mean huge… Rock Hudson,” he went on to say the following about the famous star of Giant and Pillow Talk:

Nick Stahl had a ‘Misunderstanding’ in the Private Booth at an Adult Movie Store

Nick Stahl arrested 2Nick Stahl was obviously just flossing his teeth or writing a poem when a police officer discovered him in a private booth of an adult store in Hollywood. The Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines star agreed with a reporter who suggested there was a “misunderstanding” regarding his recent lewd conduct charge.

If you don’t remember Stahl as awkward, half-grown up John Connor opposite Claire Danes in Terminator 3, or rightfully paranoid teenager Gavin Strick of Disturbing Behavior, then you might know him as that actor guy whose wife reported him missing.

Yes, Nick Stahl was in a movie called Disturbing Behavior, then engaged in disturbing behavior at a porn store while watching a parody of Disturbing Behavior starring Katee Holmes and lied about it to the cops.

Sources report that his passing came “very suddenly.”

On July 13th, Duncan suffered from cardiac arrest but was saved by his fiancé, reality star Omarosa (Celebrity Apprentice, The Surreal Life), who performed CPR on him before he was admitted to an Intensive Care Unit.

At that point, his rep told the media that he was “stable” and on the road to a full recovery. Those words are especially bitter to hear now that we know he was in the hospital for seven weeks prior to his death.
