BAD BOY KUMMER
“If it is not true, it is very well invented.” This quote from Giordano Bruno could be the motto of the former king of the faked Hollywood interview, Tom Kummer. He was supposed to have met Sharon Stone, Sean Penn and Bruce Willis for long, intense discussions but it was all make-believe. For 4 years the Swiss journalist supplied reputable publications in Germany and Switzerland such as SZ magazine or the Zurich Tages-Anzeiger magazine until his cover was blown. Today he works as a tennis coach in Los Angeles. Kummer pulled a fast one on them all: the media, the stars and even himself._A portrait of a self-destructive, self-suggestive sham.
