Celebrities who have kept a clean sheet

If you think that's bad, you should've seen what he was like when he was a pub landlord.

Quote from: Elderly Sumo Prophecy on November 18, 2023, 05:38:47 PMIt's almost like everyone has character faults and skeletons in the closet, even celebrities.

I can't think of anyone (myself included) who wouldn't be fearful about becoming famous just because of things that people could dig up, exaggerate and take out of context. Actually amazed at celebrities who don't seem to have any dirt on them. I mean surely even Attenborough has told someone to fuck off or something.

Quote from: Ant Farm Keyboard on November 20, 2023, 12:15:22 PMMcShane is the textbook example of a celebrity who appears to be cool to the point that nobody does any digging on his past. But his coke-fueled relationship with Sylvia Kristel would qualify him otherwise for cancellation, even nearly 50 years after the facts.

Having a coke-fueled relationship in the 70s was surely every actor/musician though.

I can't imagine Christopher Timothy having any skellingtons in his cupboard. Apart from maybe being caught having his arm up a cow's arse in his own time.

Hah... no.  My Mum stopped watching All Creatures Great and Small in disgust, once she found out that he'd left his wife and six kids to run off with his on-screen wife, Carol Drinkwater.

Mind you, that's hardly a skeleton in his closet, is it?

Brundle-Fly

And Chris was the voice of The 'super soaraway' Sun newspaper TV ad campaigns during the 70s/80s.
The story allegedly goes; the day he and his co-star were clandestinely breaking off their illicit affair on a train to Chichester, the pair got spotted by a Sun reporter who exposed them. Bad luck. Super soaraway, indeed.

Then shot a man who he allowed to shag him up the arse... a man who's real life son is a tosser of some repute!

Something I've always wondered, and here seems a good enough place to ask:

what the fuck does the word 'soaraway' actually mean in the context of advertising The S*n?

thanks.  Still seems like a somewhat jarringly esoteric word to use in that context to me.

Quote from: Terry Torpid on November 17, 2023, 07:58:26 PMMore recently, he gets a lot of criticism from smug extreme vegans (like me!), because for all his talk of caring for animals, and saving the planet, the daft old cunt still hasn't made the obvious ethical and environmental step to stop supporting the livestock industry (the primary driver of Amazon deforestation and the biggest source of agricultural greenhouse gas on Earth).

Not good enough. He should lead by example. The second quote shows he knows it's wrong, but doesn't have the resolve to kick the habit. He's not even a vegetarian, and that's piss easy! Chris Packham went vegan a few years ago, so fair play to him, he practises what he preaches.

To be fair, he's been DEAD SOON for so long, he must have thought he didn't have many meals ahead of him. And, at this point, a change in diet would probably finish the soppy old fucker off.

No, Dave, you enjoy your free range chicken, mate.

Actually, he let loads in and they lost the match. Shithouse of a goalie.

Has anyone mentioned Trevor and Simon yet?

During one of their many fights, Kristel fell and suffered a miscarriage. Details were hidden but he had a career slump for a few years after that.

Elderly Sumo Prophecy

Can't believe we never got an Emmanuelle/Lovejoy cross-over film out of their relationship.

Christopher Lillicrap used to snort coke off the thighs of Arabian virgins.

Allegedly.

And he lost an arm wrestle with Kevin Beattie during a break in filming. Then when ex-heavyweight contender Earnie Shavers auditioned for the role of Clubber Lang, Sylvia (to quote Arthur Daley) insisted that Shavers hit him properly. Seconds after Earnie hit him in the guts our hero found himself throwing up in the toilets.

4-4 draw, despite homer ref.

Nice to know Cumbria's own Keavin Beattie beat Stallone at arm wrestling, though. I bet that impressed the lads down the pubs on Botchergate.

Knocked my arm at a Fringe show about 10 years ago, causing me to spill my (Edinburgh priced) beer.

OK, he apologised immediately, bought me another, and was very lovely indeed when we chatted afterwards, but I still suffered a minor brief inconvenience. CUNT!

Morris must have been hard as nails, geting ALAMY tattoed on his face.

I suppose it wouldn't be a good look for veganism if he carked it two weeks after converting.
