Here’s a weird one for you…

Licorice Pizza actor Skyler Gisondo filed a lawsuit against an accomplished hairstylist Lori Guidrozclaiming that she gave him a little neck massage while he was working on the film – that’s not the point, mind you – and that during that massage she somehow injured her neck, which cost him work.

TMZ broke the news via court papers, so keep in mind it’s all alleged from Gisondo, but the 26-year-old actor claims that since Guidroz didn’t have a license, she shouldn’t have offered. the massage in the first place, and she should be responsible for her medical claims.

The actor claims that in addition to lost wages, he suffered a portion of his working capacity, loss of use of property and property damage, and he seeks compensatory damages, although his lawsuit does not specify those claims or offer details of how Guidroz injured him. However, Gisondo says he can offer proof.

Curiously, Gisondo claims that the massage took place while Guidroz was doing her makeup, even though she is credited as a hairstylist on the Paul Thomas Anderson movie, which briefly paired the actor with Alana Haim.

Gisondo is one of the most talented young actors of his generation, and although he co-starred in the series Peacock The complex and appear in HBO episodes Virtuous Gemstones earlier this year, it’s unclear when these projects were filmed or when Gisondo suffered the injury, though it was likely before he filmed these projects. That said, he also hasn’t, somewhat surprisingly, booked another movie since. Licorice Pizzaso maybe it speaks to the loss of work mentioned in his lawsuit – because he is really very talented.

Just like Guidroz, who collaborated with Ben Stiller on several projects and is credited as Paul Rudd‘s personal stylist on the next The ant Man film, as well as the head of the hairdressing department on Christian BaleNetflix’s next movie pale blue eye.

Gisondo appeared on an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and this alleged incident seems almost straight out of Curb, but I hope the actor is feeling better no matter what happened to his neck.
