The great ones all go by one name. DeNiro. Pacino. Meryl. Bogart. Brando. Denzel. Uggie.
Uggie is Hollywood’s most famous A-List Dog, and stole the hearts of the world with his incredible performance in the 5 Academy Award Winning “The Artist” last year. He has appeared on every daytime talk show, and became such a phenomenon that people banded together to try to get him his own Oscar Nomination. Uggie is the only dog with a star and paw prints on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, and the mayor of LA even declared the day named after him. He has interacted with more other A-List movies stars then anyone not named Pitt or Jolie, and now that he has retired from his iconic acting career, Uggie has set his sights on conquering the literary world next with the release of his incredible new memoir “My Story”. His “Rags To Riches” story is the thing Hollywood fairy tales are made of, and as he rides off into the sunset, Uggie sets a new standard on what an actor of his genre can accomplish with hard work and determination. Not to mention he is openly involved with one of his former co-stars Reese Witherspoon!
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with the remarkable star of stage and screen, the one and only Uggie, while on his media frenzied book tour in NYC including appearances on NBC’s Today Show, VH1’s Big Buzz Morning, and Fox and Friends, to talk about what it’s like being Hollywood’s most famous dog alive, his rivalry with Lassie, his never ending crush on Reese Witherspoon who he dedicated his book to, how he overcame the odds to become one of the film industry’s brightest stars, and what comes next for him as he retires from his film career. There are few animals, if any, that can capture your heart like Uggie, and as you will be able to tell, I absolutely fell in love with him! Enjoy Kade Nation!
