Inside legendary cult director Lloyd Kaufman’s Manhattan mutant manor
The king of micro-budget shlock-horror has surprisingly classy digs.In stark contrast to his career championing gross-out exploitation films, Lloyd Kaufman has spent the past 33 years calling a demurely decorated Upper East Side townhouse his home.The 76-year-old is best known for producing and distributing over 1,000 sex- and gore-heavy movies on pocket change through his film company, Troma Entertainment. But at the end of the work day he goes home to the Yorkville townhouse he and his wife Pat raised their three grown daughters in.The four-story brownstone is filled with antique wooden furniture and 19th-century millwork accentuated by fine art acquired on the couples’ travels — rich digs for the sovereign saint of comedic limb loss and noxious waste.Kaufman’s credentials include directing the 1984 cult classic “The Toxic Avenger” (one of Marisa Tomei’s first acting credits), putting Trey Parker and Matt Stone on the map by distributing their 1993 comedy “Cannibal! The Musical” and setting the record for most squibs ever used in a single movie (1988’s “Troma’s War”).While inexplicable to many, Troma’s brand of excessive violence, political incorrectness, enormous breasts and slapstick superheroes has proved enduring, and today the company claims to be the world’s longest continually running independent film company.“The fans are our secret sauce,” Kaufman told The Post, noting that despite years of notoriety this is the first time he has shown off his home in the press.

Movie star chimp Tonka found alive after owner faked death to avoid PETA seizure
appeared in the film “Buddy” with actor Alan Cumming was found alive last week after his former owner faked his death to avoid having him confiscated by PETA, according to Rolling Stone.Tonka’s owner, Tonia Haddix, had previously claimed that he had passed away from heart failure and that she cremated him in a fire pit, the outlet reported.She fabricated the story after PETA sounded the alarm about dire conditions at her Missouri animal sanctuary and demanded its closure, according to the report.The facility eventually went defunct, but Haddix claimed Tonka was no more.PETA didn’t buy her story and joined Cumming in offering a $20,000 for information leading to Tonka’s shrouded whereabouts.“During the months we filmed together, baby Tonka and I became good friends, playing and grooming each other and just generally larking about,” Cumming said in an April statement.The aging primate was eventually located in a small room on a property owned by Haddix, who conceded that she had lied about his death, Rolling Stone said.Tonka, 38, has now been placed in a sprawling Florida sanctuary, PETA said this week.Cumming was elated by his old pal’s new lease on life.“I’m dancing a jig that PETA has rescued Tonka from the woman who locked him away alone in a basement and lied about it,” he said, according to PETA. “The thought of Tonka being able to wander free and happy at Save the Chimps’ lush, spacious sanctuary for the rest of his life has me singing a happy song.”Haddix told Rolling Stone that she expects legal consequences.“I’m sure that there’ll be some jail time in this,” she said.

Bradley Cooper blasted for fake nose in Netflix Leonard Bernstein film ‘Maestro’
Netflix biopic that was released on Monday.“Who the f–k made the conscious decision to say ‘oh yes, we’ll put a prosthetic nose on a non-jewish man to play a jewish person, brilliant idea, definitely not anti-semitic or a damaging stereotype in any way,” one user wrote on Twitter.Chief Television Critic for The Hollywood Reporter Daniel Fienberg called the actor’s latex-heavy look “problematic” in a post on social media. “My question, ‘How many pounds of latex would it take to make Bradley Cooper into an elderly Jewish man?’ was supposed to be rhetorical,” Fienberg wrote.Another Twitter user wondered, “Or you could…hire an old Jewish actor…instead of slapping on a prosthetic nose? this some antisemitic bulls–t that he’ll win an Oscar for.”Bernstein, who was born to Russian Jewish immigrants, is best known for his work on “West Side Story.” “Maestro” follows Bernstein’s life up until his death at 72 years old in 1990 when the conductor died from a heart attack caused by progressive lung failure.Fienberg also called out the movie creators for their choice in casting Carey Mulligan as Bernstein’s first wife, saying: “My critiquing of Bradley Cooper converting to Latex Judaism caused me to fail to even notice Carey Mulligan as Leonard Bernstein’s first wife, who was Chilean-Jewish.
