One Jersey Shore star says he once got a solid pearl of wisdom from Tinseltown’s most esteemed Italiano, Al Pacino himself!

So, who was it who got to rub elbows with and take notes from Scarface?

That’d be Vinny … although, he didn’t quite abide by the screen legend’s little nugget of advice.

“Al Pacino once told me he hated name droppers. I'm like I know right?!” Vinny tweeted, thereby squarely thrusting himself onto Al’s no-no list.

We can picture it now: Vinny standing there all like “Are you talkin’ to me?” and then whipping out his cell to introduce Al to his little friend, Twitter.


Catch the next new episode of Jersey Shore tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
