Robert Kraft has been successful with just about everything he's ever done, especially when it comes to making truck loads of money. One career path the Patriots owner won't be pursuing, however, is acting.
A viral video featuring the 71-year-old and aspiring actress Ricki Noel Lander hit the Internet on Wednesday morning and absolutely took off. In the video, Kraft is seen reading lines (with some pretty solid profanity) alongside a bikini-clad Lander in an apparent audition tape.
The video was picked up across the web, and it led Kraft to release a statement on Wednesday afternoon. ProFootballTalk.com was able to obtain the release, which read:
"I tried to help Ricki prepare an audition tape for an upcoming Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson comedy by reading Wilson's lines. I never intended that it would be made public and I regret that it has. I think we can all agree that Owen Wilson has nothing to worry about. I am going to stick to my day job."
