Some stars are not afraid to show the truth behind Hollywood. It is not all glitz and glamour all the time. Several celebrities have taken to twitter to defend
Geoffrey Owens, who stared as Elvin Tibideaux on The Cosby Show from 1985 to 1992, after multiple outlets showed he had been photographed by a customer bagging groceries at a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey this past week.

Terry crews stood behind him and tweeted, “I swept floors AFTER the @NFL. If need b, I’d do it again. Good honest work is nothing to be ashamed of.”

The Middle and Everybody Loves Raymond star Patricia Heston also expressed her frustration. “Again, why is the news? When I worked on “Thirsdaysomething” I was also summarizing depositions to pay my rent. Why are you trying to humiliate this honorable, hardworking actor? Shame on you! #geoffreyowens – many great blessing are coming your way!” Patricia tweeted.

The acknowledgment of the struggle many actors have to find work to support themselves and others needs to be known.

Just to add in, according to Entertainment Tonight, “The Cosby Show, Owens’ credit include Divorce, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Elementary, Lucifer and Impossible Monsters later this year.”
