Lenny went to high school in the 90210 Zip Code, the school that inspired the show Beverly Hills, 90210. His classmates included Nicolas Cage, Gina Gershon and Slash.
He has a house in Miami with '60s retro decor, complete with a white, fur-lined tunnel. Visitors are asked to remove their shoes before entering.
For the sake of simplicity, he doesn't wear underwear.
In 2000, he was arrested when he fit the description of a bank robber. He will leave the house looking like a slob, and that was one of those days.
