Unapproved Biopic Sparks Controversy

Former fitness guru Richard Simmons distances himself from a new biopic, stating, "I have never given my permission for this movie," sparking a celebrity controversy.

The unnamed biopic was unveiled by Pauly Shore, who secured the role due to a viral meme highlighting his physical resemblance to Simmons. Despite the announcement, Simmons clarified on Facebook that he is not involved and emphasized his desire for a quiet, peaceful life.

Simmons’ Legacy and Attempted Contact by Shore

Simmons, a household name in the 1980s, gained fame for his health and fitness advocacy, Sweatin’ to the Oldies aerobics videos, and energetic personality. The biopic, described as a “dramatic and heartfelt feature in the tone of Little Miss Sunshine,” is being produced by Warner Bros subsidiary, the Wolper Organisation. The production company, acknowledging Simmons’ privacy wishes, aims to honor his legacy while telling a compelling story.


Pauly Shore, who also portrayed Simmons in an unrelated short film, expressed his intentions to contact Simmons personally. He stated on Facebook, “I’ve noticed all the reactions to me playing Richard Simmons in a new biopic. I heard he’s living deep in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he still has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen for you guys. Be optimistic.”

The Podcast Controversy and Film Development

Simmons became the focus of the 2017 podcast, “Missing Richard Simmons,” which explored his disappearance from public life. Critics deemed the podcast “morally suspect” as Simmons clarified that he valued his privacy.


The Wolper Organisation, a Warner Bros subsidiary, revealed that the biopic would celebrate Simmons’ impact on millions of lives, respecting his privacy while telling a compelling and respectful story.

Shore’s Perspective on Simmons

Pauly Shore, upon announcing the biopic, praised Simmons for representing mental health, fitness, and authenticity. Shore acknowledged Simmons’ ability to captivate audiences with joy and a sense of fun during his television appearances.

In this developing controversy, Simmons’ disapproval raises questions about the ethics and permissions involved in celebrity biopics.
