Dame Helen Mirren stands up for women

  

Dame Helen Mirren stands up for women

Dame Helen Mirren is one of the best British actors of our time. She is one of the very few actors who have achieved the Triple Crown of Acting - a term used in the American entertainment industry to describe actors who have won a competitive Academy Award (2007), Emmy Award (1996) and Tony Award (2015) in the acting categories.

Despite her talent and success, she has had to go through the sexism that characteristic of show business. However, Helen Mirren has been brave and has been fighting against sexism for decades. The most notable case is when the actress appeared on her first-ever talk show, Parkinson, hosted by Michael Parkinson. The sexist questioning she had to endure may be outrageous, but it reflects what female celebrities tend to endure when dealing with the media.
Parkinson introduces Helen in a chilled-out tone: “The critics spend as much time discussing her physical attributes as assessing her acting ability.” Then he quotes reviewers who have described the member of the Royal Shakespeare Company as a “sex queen” who possesses a “sluttish eroticism.”
He%20tells%20the%20future%20Oscar,%20Tony%20and%20Emmy%20winner%20%E2%80%9CYou%20are,%20in%20quotes,%20a%20%E2%80%98serious%20actress%E2%80%99
Then he goes on to ask: “do you find that what could be best described as your equipment in fact hinders you perhaps in that pursuit?”
When she inquires about her equipment, he tries to avoid to answer but then admits he was referring to her figure or “bosom.”
Mirren asks him if serious actresses can't have big bosoms, and then he responds, “I think that might sort of detract them from the performance if you know what I mean.”
But then Dame Helen burned him: “I can't think that can necessarily be true. I mean what a crummy performance if people are obsessed with the size of your bosom or anything else. I would hope that the performance and the play and the living relationship between all the people on the state and all the people in the audience overcome such boring questions.”
But she has stood up for women over decades:
“Women have got to stop being polite. If I ever had children, which I don't, the first thing I'd teach a girl of mine is the words ‘f- off.'” “At 70 years old, if I could give my younger self one piece of advice, it would to use the worlds ‘f- off' much more frequently.”
“You can't control how other people see you or think of you. And you have to be comfortable with that.”
“I think every woman in our culture is a feminist. They may refuse to articulate it, but if you were to take any woman back 40 years and say, ‘Is this a world you want to live in?' They would say, ‘No'”
“Fear can be one of the most destructive emotions. It is, of course, also very important, in that fear sometimes stops you from doing stupid things. But it can also stop you from doing creative or exciting or experimental things. It can cloud your judgement of others, and lead to all kinds of evil. The control and understanding of our personal fears is one of the most important undertakings in our lives.”
“The trick in life is learning how to deal with it.”
“40 is good, 50 is great, 60 is fab and 70 is f- awesome.”
“It seems to me that the years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It's then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult - but you are not ready.”
“The role of women has always been undervalued in the spy world, always undermined in terms of recognition. Unfairly so. It's a world that needs women.”
“When you're young and beautiful, you are paranoid and miserable.”
“You write your life story by the choices you make.”

 

Princess Mary dazzles at Copenhagen Fashion Week

  

Danish Crown Princess Mary

Looking resplendent in a jewel-embellished black coat, cigarette pants and white jumper, Princess Mary kicked off the Copenhagen Fashion Week in Denmark in the most elegant, dazzling manner.

Dressed warmly but stylish for the wintry weather, the 44-year-old added the final touch to her look by wearing a pair of Valentino rockstud heels. She brightened up her look with a bold pink lipstick and accessorized with dazzling crystal earrings. Everyone at the event fell prey to her characteristic warm smile.
Renown for being the largest fashion show in the Nordic Region, Copenhagen Fashion Week runs every February and August. The main venue of the shoe is at the City Hall of Copenhagen in the city center.
Joining designers at the opening of the annual event at City Hall, the style icon posed for photos with Eva Kruse, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Summit.
Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat, is the wife of Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, Frederik is the heir apparent to the throne of Denmark. The royal couple have four children, out of which two are twins.
Their story is an authentic modern fairytale between a Prince and commoner. The royal couple met at the Slip Inn, a pub in Sydney, when the Prince was visiting Australia during the 2000 Summer Olympics. They got engaged after three years, and then they married the following year, which received extensive coverage by both Australian and European news media.
The Copenhagen Fashion Week doesn't only showcase designs from established designers, but it also promotes up-and-coming talent as well, particularly with the Designer's Nest Award.
As the patron of Designer's Nest Award, the Australian-born princess presented the winners at the coveted event. The aim of the award is to expose and promote up-and-coming designers in order to boost their chances to make it in the fashion industry.
Australian photographer Natalie Rap spoke with the princess and then told Daily Mail Australia that Mary took the time to speak with guests and take photos. The photographer said the princess was friendly and approachable.
Accordingly, Mary “raved” about the Danish label and praised the historic brand for being sustainable.
“Everyone was really impressed with how she was so friendly and approachable,” Miss Rap said.
“Many locals said to me I was lucky to have the chance to speak with her as it's a rare opportunity in Denmark.”
Mary observed Danish fashion house Fonnesback's Spring/Summer 2017 collection from the front row. Established in Denmark in 1847 by Anders Fonnesbach, the label combines historic pieces with modern fashion to create timeless designs, including a bright yellow gown with cut-out sleeves that took the runway by storm.
Mary wore an off-white dress by Daniel label Julie Fagerholt Heartmade, valued in US$523. The dress is made with silk and features a gold thread with button closure.
She paired the dressed with a rust-colored coat by Fonnesbech, snakeskin and suede stilettos by Italian fashion house Sergio Rosson, and a clutch from Danish label Carlend Copenhagen. Only the crocodile-skin clutch retails online for US$1273.

 

J.K. burns haters on Twitter

  

jk Rowling

The author of the famous saga of Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling, is often vocal about her political views, particularly her support for refugees, the LGBTQ community, women, minorities and her disdain for Donald Trump. Unfortunately, her position has sparked the hate of many Trump supporters that have taken to Twitter to either insult her or criticize her.

Trolls, however, should know better than to mess an internationally famous writer who obviously has a way with words. There's nothing more entertaining than reading on Twitter how J.K. Rowling brutally destroys Internet trolls with her witty, genius comebacks.
When a Twitter used said “glad I caught this article on yahoo. I will now burn your books and movies too,” referring to J.K. Rowling criticism of Trump, J.K. Rowling had the most amazing response: “Well, the fumes from the DVDs might be toxic and I've still got your money, so by all means borrow my lighter.”
She has also stood out in defense of the LGBTQ community. When a fan tweeted “I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can't see him in that way,” Rowling replied, “Maybe because gay people just look like... people?”
After Trump banned refugees from the USA, J.K. Rowling defended by saying: “If you can't imagine yourself in one of those boats, you have something missing. They are dying for a life worth living.” That defense sparked a criticism from a Twitter troll: “Said the millionaire on her gold iPhone in her mansion.” To that, she responded: “I'd type a longer retort, but these diamond buttons really hurt my fingers.”
The language newspapers and politicians use to depict somebody or a group of people can affect their identity and J.K. Rowling is aware of this fact. That is why when Daily Mail US published a news story with this title “‘Lone wolf' student Alexandre Bissonnette sole suspect accused of killing six at Quebec City mosque”, J.K. Rowling tweeted “He. Is. A. Terrorist. Not. A. Lone. Wolf.” By labeling him “lone wolf” the media is ignoring the fact this act is not an stand-alone event but part of a broader reality, an anti-Muslim sentiment in the West. This was an act of hate and by not depicting as such, media is ignoring how the monster of Islamophobia in growing in Western societies, and how it has turned a group into terrorists as well. When J.K. Rowling calls him a “terrorist”, he is addressing the whole reality. If you can call a Muslim that shoots a number of people in a Miami club a “terrorist”, then you can also call a Westerner that kills people in a mosque a “terrorist”. They were both terrorist attacks with a terror purpose. They are not aimed at one person for personal reasons but to a community to spark a certain response.
People should know better than to go on a “grammar-off” with a best-seller author. But they still do... lucky for us. After J.K. Rowling corrected a spelling mistake on Trump's tweet, a Trump supporter reacted with a derogatory tweet “Nitpicking at it's finest.” But the author of Harry Potter burned him with the best shortest tweet of all time: “*its*”. He had made a grammar mistake by using “it's” which is short for “it is” instead of “its” which is the correct possessive of “it.”

 

Europe welcomes Trump in hilarious satire sketches

  

America First   The Netherlands Second

President Donald Trump has pledged to put America first, but all the Dutch ask is that he will put the “Netherlands second” in a hilarious spoof message by news satire show Zongag met Lubach that has racked up millions of hits.

The whole world watched Donald Trump as he gave his inauguration speech when he became the 45th president of the United States. Now what the whole world is watching is the response from a Dutch TV presenter who introduced his nation to the leader of the free world “in a way that will probably appeal to him the most”.
Host Arjen Lubach opens the segment by telling his audience that it's better for the two nations to find a way to get along. Presented as “The Netherlands welcome Trump in his own words”, the voiceover uses a Trump-style accent poking fun at his famous lines, poking at his policies, controversies and other countries.
“The whole world was watching the inauguration,” Dutch comedian Arjen Lubach says introducing the clip.
“He had a clear message to the rest of the world: ‘From this day forward. It's going to be only America first.'
“And we realize it's better for us to get along (so) we decided to introduce our tiny country to him in a way that will probably appeal to him the most.”
The video appears as a fake tourism advert from the Government of the Netherlands introducing Holland to the American president. The voiceover calls the “tiny country” a “really, really fantastic place.”
The spoof is sparks the first chuckles by claiming that they defeated the Spanish - who are “total losers” - and “they're all dead now.”
“We speak Dutch,” the voiceover explains. “It's the best language in Europe. We've got the best words. All the other languages failed. Danish... total disaster. German is not even a real language.”
“They are the best ponies, they are. You can ride them. You can date them. You can grab ‘em by the pony, it's fantastic,” alluding to Trump's scandalous off-the-record talks about women.
In reference to the wall Trump wants to build between the USA and Mexico, the video mentions Afsluitdijk, “it's a great, great wall that we built to protect us from all the water from Mexico. We built an entire ocean... Nobody builds oceans better than we do... And we made the Mexicans pay for it. It's true.”
One of the best parts of the video is when it describes Madurodam as the “greatest miniature town in the world. It's tiny but it's great.” Then it pokes fun at the size of the crowd at Trump's inauguration by stating that the squares are so small you don't need many people to fill them, and then cuts to a scene from Ceremony Square during Trump's swearing-in ceremony.
Since Trump has been criticized for being a racist and for his mockery of handicapped people, the video first mentions a racist tradition: “In December, we've got the most scandalous tradition of Black Pete. It's the most offensive, the most racist thing you've ever seen. You'll love it. It's great.” And then a disabled person: “We also have a disabled politician for you to make fun of.”
One of the funniest parts of the video is it pokes fun at Trump's unwillingness to show his tax return. “We've got the best tax evasion system God ever created... You should tell your sons to put all your... sorry... their business here. You'll pay no taxes at all.”
It concludes: “We totally understand it's going to be America first, but can we just say: The Netherlands second?”

 

The Beckhams renew wedding vows

  

The Beckhams renew wedding vows

After almost 18 years of marriage, David and Victoria Beckham are going to renew their vows, as David Beckham said on an interview in a special 75th anniversary edition of BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, in which the retired football star opens up about his life with former Spice Girl, Victoria, 42.

“We have renewed our vows since (our fist wedding)” David, 41, said. “It was a lot more private, about six people there in our house.”
Their renewal was very different from their original wedding in 1999 where the couple wore matching purple outfits. “I even had a top hat in purple,” he noted. “What was I thinking? I looked like the guys out of Dumb and Dumber.”
The retired sport star talked about their marriage going strong and the great dedication they put into it. “We're a strong family unit. We've got strong parents. We were brought up with the right values,” he said. “Of course you make mistakes over the years, and we all know marriage is difficult at times. It's about working through it.”
“We know each other better than anybody. People have talked about, ‘Do we stay together because it‘s a brand?‘ Of course not. We stay together because we love each other, because we have four amazing children,” he continued. “Do you go through tough times? Of course. That's part of relationships. It's part of marriages. It's part of having children. It's part of having responsibilities.”
The sports star, who recently collaborated on a new fashion collection with Kent & Curwem, also spoke about the time he met Victoria for the first time. “She was never into football. Everyone at the time had their favorite Spice Girl. I remember seeing Victoria on the telly, and she was dressed in this black cat suit, which is one of the reasons why she became my favorite Spice Girl.”
He added: “I'd seen her the week before, and I must have caught her eye because then the week after she came to another game. She was obviously there for a reason and I was hoping I was that reason, and apparently I was.”
Although the couple had a cute meet, David said they have grown into a strong couple over the years and they still work together as a team.
“Back when we were 22,23 years old, the only responsibility that we had was to ourselves and to our jobs at the time,” he said. “We're very respectful of our life and when we do go through tough times, we work through them as a family, as a unit.”

 

Ellen and Jamie Dornan's Fifty Shades Darker

  

Fifty Shades

With the premiere of Fifty Shades Darker this year, everyone is raving about the second film of the saga. British actor Jamie Dornan, who plays Mr. Grey in the movie, has been interviewed by the top hosts and journalists in the news media. The most memorable appearance, however, was the one on Ellen Degeneres' show.

On the show, Ellen interviewed Jamie and then simulated a scene in the “Red Room” but with a twist: there was tape and staplers involved. On the actual interview, Ellen asks Jamie about Fifty Shades Darker, his wife, his body hair and S&M sex toys. When she asked him if he had used any of those toys before, he said that he had used some of them but not with a sexual purpose; for instance, some of them he would use to go horseback riding.
When actors do roles, they need learn about the character to get into because they have to,” she said. “I assume that to play this character, you need to know what you are doing to use the equipment. Had you known anything about that world before?”
“Not at all,” he said. “Everything you find in the “Red Room”, you've used them versional not for the same effect... So you have the skills there and you kind of surprise yourself.”
Ellen also asked Jamie if his wife Amelia had asked him to take any of that equipment home. He said she probably wouldn't the props from the set but they weren't interested in that kind of practice altogether.
“Obviously it's a popular thing,” Ellen said. “I was wondering if your wife was interested in that now.”
Ellen also told Jamie that Magic Mike and his movie were responsible for a baby boom. Jamie told a touching story related to that. A woman recognized him on an elevator. She told him that she had had trouble conceiving and that after watching the movie, she got pregnant.”
When Ellen also asked Jamie if he had to wax for the role, he said he wasn't a particularly hairy person.
Ellen told Jamie about a scene she had written for the upcoming films of the series, which turned out to be a Fifty Shades Darker parody. Then she asked him if he would partake in recreating a “Red Room” of their own.
The TV host and comedian joined forces with Christian Grey himself, actor Jamie Dornan, for a heated film on a budget called Fifty Shades Darkest.
In the spoof, Jamie hired Ellen-as-Anastasia-Steele, a Staples employee, for an intimate night. Elle uses office supplies as sex toys. The first thing Ellen offers is a small stapler, but since Jamie wasn't turned on by it, she offered a bigger stapler.
With the help of big fake boobs, Ellen seductively uses tape instead of handcuffs to restrain his hands. As a method of seduction, she cuts his tie and since that work for Mr. Grey, she offered up a pencil sharpener for his penis.

 

The Inbetweeners phenomenon

  

inbetweeners

From the UK to the US and even to Australia, The Inbetweeners are a global phenomenon. Following the awkward teenage years of Will (Simon Bird) and his friends Simon (Joe Thomas), Neil (Blake Harrison), and Jay (James Buckley), the British smash-hit became the comedy series of a generation of teenagers and young adults that watched the show during its three season run.

The show tells the story and misadventures of an unpopular group of friends who are desperately trying to fit in by trying to party and impress girls, but that in their attempt they pull a number of pranks and mishaps that make them so endearing and hilarious. As expected in a British comedy, the group fails miserably at their attempt to blend in and they do in the most cringe-inducing, scandalous and lough-out-loud way.
The story centers on Will, a snobbish nerd who has been transferred from a private school, after his parents' divorce, to Rudge Park Comprehensive. Despite being Will's voiceover that one that introduces and concludes each episode, he is an unconventional hero. While he is the most intelligent member of the group and he is focused on getting into a good university, he is also romantically frustrated.
While his friend Jay is the most vulgar of the group as well as a compulsive liar, Simon plays a hopeless romantic and is Will's closest friend out of the group. Neil, well, he is just an idiot, but an endearing one. Although none of the characters have any redeeming qualities, they have a great capacity to make the audience laugh.
The series is also known for its insane phrases, such as:
“I will be humiliated in front of the girl I've lusted after since she was eight.”
“I've never loved anything before, apart from a car or a sandwich.”
“How long is my lunch hour?” “An hour.”
The Inbetweeners success in the US was such that MTV released the American version of the TV show. Once the British TV show finished, two films based on the original TV show were created, featuring the original cast. The first was called “The Inbetweeners, the movie” and the Inbetweeners 2 follows the group of friends as they meet up again for a holiday in Australia.
Ever since the feature films were released, fans have been eagerly wishing for a third movie to hit cinemas. However, actor Simon Bird - who plays Will McKenzie - revealed that his days as an inbetweener are over and he will not reunite with his former co-stars on screen.
“It was great while it lasted,” he said to Gaby Roslin, “but we are too old for that now. We're old men. I feel so old!”
“It was a great time making The Inbetweeners. I still see the boys all the time. It's sad that it's over, but it is over unfortunately.”

 

British TV Shows catchphrases

  

LittleBritain

Now that we've talked about the best British TV shows of all time, it's time to talk about one of the factors that have sparked their popularity. This factor are their irresistible catchphrases, product of the writers‘ wit and sense of humor, who have used the talent not only to create intricate plots and memorable lines, but also catchphrases that have been echoed by audience from far and wide.

To top the list is the British TV show “Only fools and horses” with its famous catchphrase “Lovely jubbly.” The line is so popular, you can purchase a mug with the catch phrase written on it.
Another popular catch phrase is “What a liberty!” made famous by “Catherine Tate Show.” This is a comedy sketch series co-written and performed by Catherine Tate and broadcasted on BBC.
Little Britain (photo) is one of the TV shows that have been most successful outside of its homeland and is a factory of hilarious catchphrases. One of this lines is the famous “Yeah, but no, but yeah, but.”
The Only Way is Essex is a BAFTA award-winning “scripted reality” television soap opera for showing “real people in modified situations, saying unscripted lines but in a structured way. Set in Brentwood, England, the show has been compared to Jersey Shore. Despite from being filmed just a few days before it is aired, the show has produced one of the most popular lines in TV history, and that is “Well Jel.”
Presented by comedian Paddy McGuinness, Take Me Out is a British dating game show inspired by the Australian show “Taken Out.” The show has originated one popular catchphrase: “No likely, no lighty!”
The Fast Show, known in the US as Brilliant, is a British comedy sketch show program that ran relied on character sketches, recurring running gags and many catchphrases. It was different from traditional sketch series in that its sketches were relatively brief. One of its famous catchphrases was “Suits you, sir!”
But it is also famous for many other just as good, as well as hilarious lines such as the one spoken by Our Janine: “I've gone vegetarian now. I mean, I know I had sausage roll yesterday, but it's not really meat, is it, y'know? I mean, there's no animal called a ‘sausage'.”
Swiss Toni also spoke memorable lines such as “Putting up a tent is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. Unzip the door, put up your pole, and slip into the old bag.”
Dad's Army was a factory of catchphrases, most notably: “Don't panic!”; “Permission to speak, sir!”, “They don't like it up ‘em!” and “You stupid boy.”
Doctor Who is another TV show known for its catchphrases: “Hello, sweetie,” “Exterminate” and “Spoilers.” And so is The Generation Game with its lines: “Nice to see you, to see you... nice”, “Didn't he/she/they do well?”, “Shut that door!”, “What a gay day!”, “seems like a nice boy!” and “look at the muck on ‘ere!”

 

Kylie Minogue and Joshua Sasse split

  

Kylie

Pop star Kylie Minogue and British actor Joshua Sasse break up their engagement to get married and split after nearly a year and a half together. The former couple met back in 2015 on the set of US series Galavant, in which he has a leading role while she was making a guest appearance.

Despite their age gap - Kylie is 48 while he is 29 - the relationship grew strong quickly after they met. Only five months after meeting each other, the pair announced their engagement. Unfortunately, their relationship has now come to an end. According to The Sun, the pop star was the one who ended it because she allegedly suspects Sasse of cheating on her with Spanish actress, Marta Milans.
The Australian singer took to social media and posted a message on Instagram in which she confirmed their break-up and thank their fans for their support.
“Thank you for all your love and support throughout this recent chapter of my life,” she wrote. “Thank you now for your love and understanding with the news that Josh and I have decided to go our separate ways. We wish only the best for each other as we venture towards new horizons.” She hashtagged “lovers” and “thesunalwaysrises” on the post.
Apparently, a source had told the Sun that Minogue was beyond consolation after the split, “she really believed he was the One. But she no longer trusts” Sasse. She reportedly asked him to move out of their West London home.
The sad news days after Minogue had talked excitedly about her upcoming wedding on an interview with ITV's This Morning. She also shared with You magazine that she planned on taking her future husband's name.
“Kylie Sasse is a great name,” she said. “Kylie Minogue has never exactly tripped off my tongue. I'll definitely be taking Sasse but there will be Minogue in there somewhere.”
She had also discussed about the couple's difficulties to have children as it is a “different kettle of fish” as you get older. Although the couple had planned to wed in Melbourne, those plans depended on whether Australia legalized same-sex marriage or not.
While this would have been the first wedding for both of them, Minogue's has had long-term partners, including Spanish model Andrés Velencoso, fellow Neighbors actor Jason Donovan and French actor Olivier Martinez.
Representatives for Minogue, Sasse or Milans haven't denied or confirmed the reported affair between Sasse and the Spanish actress. The British actor and Milans met while the filmed the US drama No Tomorrow in Canada last year.
A source who worked on the show revealed: “It is well known that Joshua and Marta had been close for a number of months.”
Friends reportedly say that Minogue's and Sassa's relationship has been rocky since the start. “After getting engaged she should have been on top of the world but it's never been smooth sailing,” the source said to The Sun. “Everyone is so upset for Kylie but her close friends and family really want her to get through this and stay strong.”
If there is something good that will come out of all of this is Kylie Minogue's next album which should help the Australian artist pour her heart out. Minogue tweeted that she had signed a new record deal with label BMG a few days before she announced her break-up.
She wrote: “So happy to announce my new record label is BMG. I promise you will have my heart...”
 
The New Album, Golden is out on 06.04.2018.  'Golden' is Kylie's first studio album in four years and her fourteenth studio album in a record breaking career. The album was mainly recorded in Nashville, which was a first for Kylie, a fact which couldn't help but inform the sound – albeit in Kylie's superlative pop style. This record is one of Kylie's most personal to date – with every song on 'Golden' co-written by Minogue.

 

Top British TV shows

  

extras

British TV screenwriters are known for their wit and humor, one of the reasons their innovative TV shows are taking over the world. Although the British are known as impassive creatures, they know how to make the audience laugh with the sense of humor. What once was restricted to the British population has become a world phenomenon - the English sense of humor. That dry sense of humor that makes use of sarcasm, ridicule, pauses, gestures and very clever catchphrases is fast becoming a global language.

Extras” is a British TV comedy that with a high dosage of sense of humor, featuring characters who get themselves into very difficult situations and then struggling to get out of them. One of the strategies behind Extras' success is the big name cameos that make an appearance in the show. Ben Stiller, Robert DeNiro, Clive Owen, David Bowie, Daniel Radcliffe, and Patrick Stewart are among those that make an appearance.
The show focuses on an extra - Ricky Gervais - trying to make it in showbiz, but things usually turn sour for him. On each episode Gervais' character tries to score a line in a scene but fails miserably... for him. It's quite amusing for the audience.
From its humble beginnings as a radio series, Little Britain became a smash hit as a TV show since it aired in 2003. The TV show conquered the British audience with their numerous catch phrases and their success was such that it ended up making its way to North American cable TV.
Created by comedy duo David Williams and Matt Lucas, Little Britain is a sketch show that explores the British Isles through a diverse mix of silly, exaggerated and rude characters.
The reason why Little Britain is so easily consumed by the foreign market is that it showcases Britain for those who are unfamiliar with the country. Although it does not portray Britain in the best light, it does paint a hilarious picture.
Perhaps you've heard “Ab-fab, sweetie darling!” before, but do you know where that catchphrase comes from? It's one of the famous lines from Absolutely Fabulous. The show focuses on the lives of two posh women desperate to stay young and cool, and that nothing will stop them from attaining it.
The main characters are played by Joanna Lumley - Patsy - and Jennifer Saunders - Eddy - who have since become a national treasure. While most British shows last only a few seasons, the series has been so successful it has run for two decades - 1992 to 2012.
Despite the show's several seasons, the audience was left wanting more and they took the show to the big screen with the release of “Absolutely Fabulous: The movie.”
While the movie featured an impressive sixty cameos, ranging from supermodels to comedians, the two main characters continue to be the centre of attention.
One of the top British exports is unarguably Mr. Bean. Who doesn't know about this awkward hilarious character? His fame is surprising giving that Mr. Bean is nearly a silent character. Most of the shows success stems from the actor Rowan Atkinson's physical humor.
