I was once held at gun point for 7 hours by a very well known Hollywood producer and film maker while he was high on crack cocaine, in his home. No it was not Spector.
I was born in Highgate, North London on a Sunday at 2pm.
I have 3 brothers and one sister. I’m the eldest.
I was breast fed.
As a baby I always shook my right leg while being fed. I still do it when I’m eating something yummy or feel anxious or angry.
I learned to swim as a toddler.
My parents have attended garden parties at Buckingham Palace. My late father was a diplomat and naval officer.
One of the women I most admired as a young girl was a neighbour in Nigeria called Helen.
She was a kept woman whose lover was a high-ranking army officer. When I told my mum she was cool, my mum called her a whore. Mum and her friends were just jealous of her.
First time I crossed the Atlantic was when I was 18 months
I first lived in Hackney as a teenager in 1977. London Fields area.
I realised religion was a crock at age 13.
I don’t own any computer games…I just don’t get them.
I seriously considered opening an English pub in Los Angeles in 1992 and wanted to call it “Where’s Lord Lucan”. My business partner didn’t think the yanks would get it. Instead I expanded my Escort service to other states.
One of my favorite music genres is Country (yes I know).
I’d rather live somewhere remote but for the present I have to be in London.
I was an extra on Michael Jackson video in Culver City, California. Dirty Diana.
I don’t drink tea or coffee. I feel sorry for people who can’t get their day going without caffeine.
I’ve never eaten at Nando’s
I’d like to be a vegetarian, but have a weakness for steaks.
As a kid in early 70′s we lived in a house in Hendon that we all presumed Dame Vera Lynn lived in at some point, because mail for her still came to the address. House came with a piano too. Would love to confirm yea or nay. Anyone?
I’d love to have a dinner party where my guests would be George Carlin, George Michael, Maya Angelou, Halle Berry, Kevin Spacey, Kenny Everett, Nelson Mandela, Monica Lewinsky, Bill Clinton, Hilary Rodham-Clinton, Magaret Thatcher, Princess Diana, Paul Haggis, Sean Penn, Michelle Obama, Curtis Mayfield, Sidney Potier, OJ Simpson (so I could ask him) Anita Roddick, Condoleezza Rice, Etta James, James Baldwin, Nina Simone, Donald Fagen & Walter Becker (Steeley Dan), Howard Marks, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix.
As you can see, some would have to be brought back to life and I’d need a massive table.
My phobias are fire and heights
Some of my favorite movies are Fried Green Tomatoes (I’d love to reenact the scene when Kathy Bates mashes up those young girls car), Mildred Pierce (the original with Joan Crawford), Rebecca, Terms of Endearment. I once met the author, Larry McMurty at a gas station in East Texas waiting for AAA to show up after my car broke down. Pal Joey, The Lincoln Lawyer, Shawshank Redemption, Ryan’s Daughter , Notes of a Scandal and Crash are a few
I wish I wasn’t so impatient.
Just once I’d like to busk
If I ruled the world I would banish people who spit on the road, don’t pick up dog poo and people who eat on London’s public transport. Actually it would give me much pleasure to grab their heads rub their faces into their dogs poo.
