American Pie actor Jason Biggs attacked by Gibraltar monkeys



Tbd-jasonbiggs082809 One-time American Pie star Jason Biggs was monkeying around on vacation with co-star Eddie Kaye Thomas in the British colony of Gibraltar when he was -- no fooling -- attacked by a Gibraltar ape, the U.K.'s Telegraph reports. The primate must not have thought that whole apple pie stunt was funny.

"They were hiking in the woods when this monkey suddenly leapt on Jason from a tree and tried to bite his face off," a source said. "Jason's traveling companions managed to fend the beast off and Jason thankfully wasn't seriously hurt, just shaken up." 

The 31-year-old was so shaken up, he ended his trip early. And for the record, the assailant was officially a Barbary macaque, which live in the area and attract lots of tourists (they're called apes because they have stubby tails). But the really scary part? Jason and Eddie were on a trip to celebrate the movie's 10th anniversary. Maybe Jason should have put it all on a Web cast.
