Jeremy Piven moans ‘nobody cares’

Jeremy Piven has been chelating his blood for the past eight years in a bid to reduce the effects of his mercury poisoning.
The 50-year-old actor previously revealed a high level of sushi in his diet and reliance on Chinese herbs had caused “shocking levels” of the dangerous chemical element in his system.
He has been trying to get back on track ever since then, but claims “nobody cares” about his health because people can’t separate him from his egotistical Entourage character Ari Gold.
“I’ve been chelating my blood for the past eight years,” Jeremy told Cigar Aficionado magazine. “I haven’t been 100 per cent since then… When that was going on, I was unable to function and it was scary as s**t. But nobody cares because you play a bad guy on TV. Well, if you want to hate me, I can’t stop you.”
Chelation therapy involves administering chelating agents such as Dimercaprol, Dimercaptosuccinic acid or Dimercapto-propane sulfonate to remove the metal from the body.
Jeremy played Ari in hit television series Entourage from 2004 to 2011 and in the spin-off movie in 2015. The character is one of the most hated in TV history, but the actor insists he’s nothing like that in real life and his reputation as being one of Hollywood’s surliest stars is unfounded.
“People are disappointed when they meet me,” he laughed. “People would be shocked to know who I really am.”
Jeremy is currently believed to be single, although he recently hit headlines due to allegations he has been sending ex-girlfriend Kate Nardi “creepy texts”.
However, he insists he is determined to now focus on his personal life and perhaps even start a family of his own.
“I love kids – I love my nieces,” he said. “I want to have a family, and it’s time. But I’ve been married to my job. The proof is there on my (movie website) IMDB page.”
