Oh I know someone who organised a function for him and said he was a massive prick.

Ed Begley Jr

I know he falls under the umbrella of "Everyone involved with BCS" but I've just been listening to that Elon Musk four-parter from the Tech Won't Save Us podcast and thinking the electric vehicle industry chose the wrong poster boy.

NO! Seriously?

Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on November 13, 2023, 03:07:06 PMGeorge Michael was a GBOL apparently. Does he count, or do the cottaging arrest and stoned car crash disqualify him?

George was a top bloke. Funny, intelligent, and he wore his extreme fame lightly. Some of the stories about his anonymous generosity that emerged after his death were heartwarming.

I would criticise him for the circumstances surrounding his cottaging arrest though. Doing it in the middle of the afternoon, when presumably a kid could have walked in, is very different to 11pm on Hampstead Heath. His interviews in the immediate aftermath were "hey, I'm cool about being gay". None of that squared with him keeping quiet about it for years. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure he had personal and professional reasons for doing so, but the true gay and proud pop pioneers of the '80s were Holly Johnson, Jimmy Summerville, Boy George etc. As for his drug driving...to paraphrase Bill Hicks, he'll have only been doing 4mph.

He managed a bar by the theatre here and he just said he was the most difficult celeb he dealt with, very arrogant and condescending.

Ruth Madoc was the nicest, apparently.

Waiter? Male? Never heard that!

I'd like to see how you turned out if a load of blokes had shoved fists up your arse when you were small.

Yeah. I remember an interview with Sean Pertwee about 15 years ago, possibly in Empire. The interviewer asked what his dad was like and Sean replied, "Basically, he was a massive poof," and dissolved into giggles.

I'm surprised no-one's brought up David Attenborough's comments on not interfering in African famines to curb population.

Yes, surely there must be one or two people on here who disagree with him?

You're probably thinking of the National Front, which he was briefly a supporter of in the 60s. He's been a socialist for over 50 years, which I'd think people would remember a bit better.

Well clearly I didn't remember either.

The Royle Family was like the national front room.

And he was drunk on a This Is Your Life appearance.

Unlike Marilyn Manson, there are no flies on Alice Cooper. In real life he's a really dull Christian.

Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on November 12, 2023, 12:29:10 AMAnd unrelated, but a friend of mine was an on set caterer for the Teletubbies, and fucked one of the assistant producers on the set.

Tubby Custard all round!

Justin Fletcher is a bit of a funny one – he frequently comes up on both nicest and nastiest celeb lists.

Plenty of examples of him staying multiple hours after shows to meet every child who wants to see him, but equally there are quite a few rumours of him being a difficult prick behind the scenes with the adults – or even in public but he's not "in character".

I'm sure one of the old CBeebies presenters alleges he got them booted off one of the shows they were both on in the early days as he wanted to be the star or something similar. Can't quite remember the details, was pre-CBeebies being on constantly in my house.

Sure he was discussed on a RHLSTP about a year ago and some of his "darker" side was discussed there.

I can only find a text citation online but the Daily Record went with the ever-so compassionate headline of
