British actor NIGEL PIVARO was robbed recently - while he was making a film to help former offenders.
The 24 Hour Party People star was shooting in Manchester, England when a man on a motorbike stole his sound equipment.
He says, "It is ironic that the film that seeks to help offenders go straight was put in jeopardy by a criminal who might need help himself one day."
Pivaro was recording a promo aimed at aiding former offenders as they leave prison.
