Jason Priestley is no doubt reviving fans’ love for “90210” with the publication of his memoir. And, should a reunion offer ever come about, Jason might consider it.
“Look, you know I love all those guys,” Jason told Access Hollywood in New York as he prepared to sign copies of his book, “Jason Priestley: A Memoir,” on Tuesday. “And we’re all friendly with each other and we all have the utmost respect and admiration for each other and we all spend a lot of time together. And, I mean, if the right project came to all of us, I’m sure we would all do it because we’re all friends with each other, so sure.”
The “90210” alum’s book is quickly making headlines for a passage that seemed to suggest he was upset when he saw that his former co-star, Tori Spelling, had sold his wedding invitation at a yard sale several years ago. Setting the record straight with Access, Jason said he wasn’t taking aim at Tori, but rather wrote the passage in his book to explain how he felt about seeing the invitation to his nuptials on the local news.
“I don’t judge Tori for what she did,” Jason explained. “I sent Tori that invitation and she can do with it what she wants. All I said in the book is how that made me feel.
“I know there were a lot of salacious headlines about you know, ‘Priestley lashes out at Tori!’ I would never lash out at Tori for that,” Jason continued. “I don’t judge Tori for what she did. All I did was comment on what I saw and then how it made me feel.”
So how did it make him feel?
“Tori’s a big girl and she can do whatever she wants. Of course, to me, she’ll always be a kid because she was 17 years old when I met her, so when I talk about her I say, ‘Oh, she’s a kid. She’s a sweet kid, and I loved that kid,’” Jason explained.
Another headline stemming from Jason’s memoir is about the superstar houseguest he had when he was a young, up and coming star, who was splitting his time between Vancouver and Los Angeles as he tried to establish himself as an actor. Upon returning to LA from one of his trips, Jason found he had a young Brad Pitt sleeping in his room.
“I would just, you know, pay my rent and then go back to Vancouver and then come back,” Jason explained. “One of the times I came back from Vancouver…. there was a guy sleeping in my bed and I said to [my roommate] Bernie [Coulson], I said, ‘Bernie, who’s that guy sleeping in my bed?’ And he said, ‘Oh yeah, that’s Brad, man. Yeah he’s great. You’re really gonna like him, man. He’s super cool.’ And that Brad guy was Brad Pitt and we all ended up living in that two bedroom crappy apartment of ours for a while.”
