Hobbitt on Holiday writes: The forthcoming issue of Forbes Magazine (July 5 issue) contains a profile of Peter Jackson by writer Brett Pulley.
It contains the following anecdote in the first paragraph:
“Around town [Wellington] people breathlessly recount the true story of how a fully clothed Paris Hilton accidentally fell into a swimming pool at an Oscar party — only to be rescued by Jackson himself. “We’re thinking of naming one of the islands after him,” jokes Belinda Todd, a local television writer. “I mean its only fair.”
Story goes on the claim that Jackson has personally made $125 million US$ from the three films. He will appear at #12 overall and 35th in annual pay on the Forbes Annual Celebrity 100 List.
