“She makes these like needlework embroideries on set in the tedium of filming”, says MacFadyen, “but they are all: ‘You Are a Cunt’. And she gives them as presents. And it’s Dame Judi Dench. And she is doing this beautifully, intricate, ornate (work). You kind of see the work materializing as the shoot goes on. Like: ‘You Are a Fucking Shit.’ Knightley never received her embroidered cushion from Dench but remarks: “I love that! She gives this fantastic air. She just sits there and she embroiders and you think: ‘Oh, that’s so nice! It’s Judi Dench. It’s so quaint; she’s embroidering a cushion,’ and you go: ‘What are you embroidering?’ And (it says): ‘Fuck!’ Apparently she’s got hundreds of them just covered in swear words or rude sayings.”
so can i worship judi dench as a religion yet or something
i want to hang out with judi dench REALLY BAD.
I remember reading somewhere that she played D & D with Vin Diesel on the Chronicles of Riddick Set.
She did. It’s on the DVD. Because he WOOED her to get her in Chronicles. With flowers and showing up all ‘eager young man and you are so wonderful’ while she was doing a play. Old School Wooing. And then y’know, after he treated her like that? It was fun to game w/ him and amuse him w/ her swearwords.
this made every day of mine from here on out through the rest of the year.
i want to be Judi Dench when i grow up.
