Andy Warhol is often portrayed as a cold, emotionless character who also constantly seems a bit addle minded, but this stereotypical portrayal doesn’t really do the man justice. In real life Andy had many sides to his life and his personality, and he was quite the fun loving fellow when he felt like kicking up his Beatle boots.
He was a fan of pro wrestling, appeared in music videos for The Cars and even made an uncredited appearance in Tootsie, but his 1985 appearance on The Love Boat is really out there- even for Warhol.
Here’s more about Season 9, Episode 3, entitled “Hidden Treasure / Picture from the Past / Ace’s Salary”:
An all-star cast, including Andy Warhol, Andy Griffith, and Milton Berle, helps the crew celebrate the ship’s two-hundredth voyage. In “Picture from the Past,” Warhol, as himself, offers to select a passenger as the subject of his next portrait. Marion Ross plays a former Warhol superstar who fears the artist will recognize her and reveal her secret past to her disapproving, conservative husband, played by Tom Bosley.
After The Love Boat episode was aired, he complained to a friend that people in Hollywood were “idiots.” They didn’t buy art, he said. They stank.
