Did Austin Butler shave his head and eyebrows for Dune: Part Two?
February 20th, 2024 under Austin Butler, Graham Norton. [ Comments: none ]

We’ve all seen that photo of a bald Austin Butler with no eyebrows for his character in Dune: Part Two. But did the actor really shave off all of his hair?

Graham Norton wanted to know, so he asked the Elvis star when he was a guest on the show last week.

Butler told the host that because he had to shoot Bike Riders when he wrapped Dune 2, the director of the other film asked him not to do it.

So, he spent three hours every day getting a skull cap put on that went down to his eyelids. And if they didn’t place it properly on his eyes, one eye would stay closed.

When Jodie Foster and Olivia Coleman heard how much time he spent in hair and makeup, they were like, we would totally shave our heads.

What would you do?


You’ll never believe how Dominic West got rid of a poltergeist 
January 10th, 2024 under Graham Norton. [ Comments: none ]

Dominic West bought a 300-year-old house in Hoxton, England, for a really good price. And as with most houses built next to a plague pit, where they buried people twenty deep, it had a poltergeist attached to it.

While the actor never experienced the paranormal activity, his friend and Vicar, who stayed there, did.

West knew he had to get rid of it, so he told Graham Norton that he decided to exercise it from his house. Therefore, he did the research, and it was a lot of work. Luckily, he didn’t have to do all of that. The person advising him told him to have a kids’ party because it will cheer up the malevolent spirit.

He took that person’s advice and threw a few parties there. And it shockingly worked.

So much so that West didn’t tell the person who bought the place from him.

Does anyone know the law in London if you can sue that homeowner for not sharing that critical detail?


Julia Roberts was fangirling over Cher, and Cher wasn’t having it!!!
December 6th, 2023 under Cher, Graham Norton, Julia Roberts, Timothée Chalamet, Tom Hanks. [ Comments: none ]

I love Cher. And her appearance on The Graham Norton Show is another reason why.

Norton wanted to talk to the legend about the fact that someone is going to be playing her in a biopic. So, Julia Roberts yelled out, “Say it’s me. Please, say it’s me.” Then, Cher looked over her, tapped her shoulder, and said, “OK. It’s you.” to shut her up, which Roberts didn’t do.

Julia then imitated the unique way Cher flicks her back. And you can tell at this point Cher was over it because the singer looked at Norton as to say to him that he should pay attention to me and not her.

So he got the message and did. That is when he asked her if they had cast someone to play the part. And she said they haven’t because she can’t find anyone to fit her extraordinary life into a script short enough to be a movie.

So Cher asked for Tom Hanks’ help since he produced Mamma Mia 2, a movie she starred in, and he loved her singing in it. He especially loved the way she sang Abba’s Fernando. So he said as long as someone sings that song, it will be fine.

Hanks accidentally opened up a can of worms because she explained to him that she will be doing her own singing in the film. She hates it when people sing other people’s songs in production because it never sounds like the original singer.

That is when Roberts chimed in again, to explain not all the time. That is because Timothée Chalamet, who was also a guest, had just been cast to play Bob Dylan.

The difference between Cher and Dylan, is she is known for her voice, and Dylan for his lyrics.

Anyways, back to Cher. Roberts added that no one is like Cher and lovingly asked her, “How do you stand yourself?” Cher told, “I don’t! I’m a pain in the ass.”

But not as big of a pain in the ass as Roberts was to her during this episode.

And there was just one more zinger from Cher to Julia. When Cher said that her life was too big for a movie script, Roberts suggested they turn it into a miniseries. Cher didn’t even look at her when she said with disdain, “Yeah. I don’t think so.”

And with that, I love Cher even more! Because she doesn’t have time for anyone’s bullshit, including another Oscar winner who used to be highest paid female film actress.


Cher is not a Cher fan
December 1st, 2023 under Cher, Graham Norton, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks. [ Comments: none ]

Cher has had a loyal fanbase for over 50 years. But there is one person who is not a member of the Cher crew.

Today, when the legend was on The Graham Norton Show, the host asked her if she listens to her own music. “I am not a big Cher fan, so I don’t usually.” Then she added, “I usually like the songs that were hits.” Can you Believe that?

Norton followed up by wanting to know if she watches her own movies, and she told him no without hesitation.

Then Tom Hanks interjected and told her, “You’re missing out. Motion picture perfection, Mamma Mia 2. Fernando. When she busts out Fernando, the World stops, suns clash with the stars.”

Norton added Moonstruck, while Julia Roberts said Silkwood. I say Mask is by far her best film. That final scene has me ugly crying every time. What movie do you think is her best?

Now, back to her not being a Cheraholic. That makes me love her even more. Because so many Divas love themselves more than they should. For example, one who just released an audiobook for her memoir that is almost 50 hours long.


So do we call Diddy Love?
November 10th, 2023 under Graham Norton, P Diddy. [ Comments: none ]

It seems like every few years, Diddy changes his name. He’s been Sean Combs, Sean Puffy Combs, Puffy, P Diddy, Diddy, now Love,

So today, when he was on The Graham Norton Show, the host wanted to know where Love fits in with all of his names.

The guy with many names explained that each name is like a different era for his life, and his life is his art.

Then he said, “Now, this is the ultimate goal. I have become Love.”

So Norton, in a high-pitched voice, asked, “Do I call you Love?” Love said, “This is where it gets confusing.”

We need an explainer after that statement. “Call me Diddy,” the Rapper said. “But when I am being Love, and I’m in that mood. Because I always have to remind myself we live in a toxic world. And it’s love versus hate. That’s what’s going on right now. And I choose love. That’s my new name. Love wins.”

OK, Puffy! I don’t know what you are puffing, but I need some of that.
