Home Alone Star Blasts Bono 

Last weekend, Home Alone actor Daniel Stern who played lovable burglar Marv in the movies, has blasted U2 singer Bono, branding him a “pretentious a**hole”.

In his memoir Home and Alone, Stern referred to a bust up that he had with Bono over a late night party that he hosted at his neighbouring house in Malibu, California.

“By one in the morning, I was out of my mind”, he wrote.

Stern continued, “It turned out he had rented the house to Bono (yes, that Bono), who was having a birthday party for his daughter”. 

“I called the police and told them that there was an unlawful party going on and that I was going over there to shut it down and I hoped they would join me”. 

The actor also scribed: “I hopped in my truck . . . and headed in… I lost it. I started ranting, ‘Shut the f***ing music off’. Families with children are trying to sleep and instead we all have to listen to this s**tty music all night long?”.
