Helena Bonham Carter asked the late Princess Margaret should she play her
November 11th, 2019 under Graham Norton, Helena Bonham Carter. [ Comments: none ]

Helena Bonham Carter is playing the late Princess Margaret in Netflix’s The Crown, but she was unsure if she should play the part. Before the actress said yes, she told Graham Norton, she went to see a psychic about something else. That psychic is also a medium and told Carter that there was a Margaret in the room with them. Did that name mean anything?

Carter not wanting to miss the chance of finding out if the Royal was alright with her taking on her essence, she decided to ask if it was OK. The Princess told her, “I think you are a better idea than the other actor.” With that Carter accepted the role.

Princess Margaret also had a suggestion for the woman who is playing her, she instructed her to, “Get the smoking right.” The Countess of Snowdon had a very distinctive way of her holding her cigarette holder and Carter made sure to replicate that.

Carter also revealed that she had met the Princess, and she had a way of “complimenting you and putting you down at the same time.” Therefore, the actress knew it was really Margaret.

When it comes to whom that other actress was, we do not know. But I wonder if the ghost also told her the same thing she told Carter…

Seriously, if you get the seal of approval from a dead person, you better do what they say. Otherwise, they will haunt you for the rest of your life. Then again if Carter did not do a good job in the series, then the Princess still haunt her. Boo!


Bruce Springsteen’s epic Graceland story
October 12th, 2019 under Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Presley, Graham Norton. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1975, Bruce Springsteen released a little album called Born to Run and the songs off of it were running up the charts. He went from unknown to superstar with that record and it gave the young singer the balls to do things he normally would never have done.

For example, yesterday when he was on The Graham Norton Show, he shared a story about a trip he will never forget. He and the band went to Nashville and they were hungry. He got in the cab with Steven Van Zandt and asked for a place to eat. The driver suggested a place near Graceland.

When they got to Elvis Presley’s home, he told the driver to stop. He got out, jumped the wall and proceeded to walk up to the door. Just as he was about to knock, he was stopped by security.

The guard wanted to know if there was anything he could help him with. That is when The Boss, asked if The King was home. He was not there because he was in Vegas.

Then Springsteen asked if he could give a message to his idol. He said to the security guard, “Can you tell him, I don’t generally like to do this but, Bruce Springsteen was here.” Then he continued with, “He might not know who that is, but I was just on the cover of Time and Newsweek.”

With that, he was on his way. He never met Elvis before he died in 1977, so he does not know if got the message. I’d like to think that he did. Not as much as Bruce though.

While he doesn’t have that awesome story of meeting The King, maybe it is better. They say never meet your idols for reason…


Taylor Swift crashed her car twice while being interviewed by Rolling Stone
May 24th, 2019 under Graham Norton, Taylor Swift. [ Comments: none ]

When you are a Rock Star you dream of being on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and that means a day-long interview to flesh out the story. Taylor Swift was so excited when she got the call that she was going to be featured. Therefore, she planned a whole day of driving around to rehearsal and stuff.

She told Graham Norton on his show today, how that interview went. She said she not only planned what they were going to do, but she also kept telling herself, “Drive the best you have you driven.” Well, she did not take her own advice. That is because she crashed her car, not once but twice. The first time was her fault, the second was not and she says she saved the reporter’s life as they were sideswiped. After the second accident, she thinks she heard Brian Hiatt scream, “I have a new baby at home!”

At that moment she knew the cover story was going to be a good read and a bad thing for her. The moral of this story is that she needs to hire a driver. Not only for herself but to protect the other people on the road. It is not she does not have the money to do so.

James McAvoy’s epic story about manscaping for the first time!
January 14th, 2019 under Graham Norton, James McAvoy. [ Comments: none ]

I love when celebrities do The Graham Norton Show because they tell him things they would never ever say on an American talk show.

For example, on Friday the BBC host asked Professor Charles Xavier about borrowing his grandfather’s razor. That is when the actor asked his gramps, who was in the audience, how old he was when he used that razor for the first time. You can tell by his grandad’s face that this story was not going to go well.

Back when McAvoy was a young lad, he started to become a man down there. He was not sure if he wanted that, so he decided to shave. Not his face but around his head. It did not go well. As in he cut himself and got blood all over the bathroom. Being a boy, he did not clean up after himself. Thus when his grandparents saw all that blood, they were worried about their grandson and asked him if he was OK. Therefore, he had to explain what he was doing.

It might have been over 25 years since that incident happened, but his grandparents’ expressions are still the same. Which is what makes this amazing TMI story even more epic.

Just as they were proud of their grandson for all of his accomplishments, he reminds them on international television it was not always that way.

Oh and thankfully, for all, McAvoy has gotten better at shaving. That and he does not use his granddaddy’s razor anymore to do it.
