Maybe he should get an Oscar for that performance

....oh....wait.....he already IS one!

Aide: Pistorius didn't take acting lessons before trial
John Bacon, USA TODAY

A spokeswoman for accused killer Oscar Pistorius angrily denied claims by a South African journalist that the double-amputee Olympian took acting lessons before testifying at his murder trial.

Jani Allan, in an open letter to Pistorius on her blog, says she has it "from a reliable source that you are taking acting lessons for your days in court. Your coach has an impossible task."

Allan later told The Sunday People, a British publication, that she obtained her information from "extremely reliable sources" that Pistorius was being coached by a famous "close actor friend."

Anneliese Burgess, spokeswoman for the Pistorius family, said in a statement Tuesday that Allan's "suggestion that Mr. Pistorius 'took acting lessons' is totally devoid of any truth." She added that Pistorius has never met Allan.

Pistorius, 27, frequently sobbed and sometimes appeared to vomit in court in the days leading up to his testimony as well as while he was on the witness stand.

"We deny in the strongest terms the contents of her letter in as far it relates to our client and further deny that our client has undergone any 'acting lessons' or any form of emotional coaching," Burgess said. "This type of comment makes a mockery of the enormous human tragedy involving the Steenkamp family and our client and his family."

I don't think Pistorius' performance in court was all that convincing. There was something phony about it. No Oscar.

Good.

"I thought it was somebody else" has never worked all that well as a murder defence.
