Graham Norton’s guests Rupert Everett and Christine Baranski reveal risqué anecdotes
GRAHAM NORTON’S sofa surfers this week were evidently feeling frisky, with two revealing some rather risqué titbits about nether regions.
First, The Good Wife actress Christine Baranski shared that a certain actor had, bizarrely, named his penis after her.
Then Rupert Everett said he’d had to make modifications to his own on-stage tackle during the theatrical version of his film The Happy Prince.
Baranski — who stars alongside singer Cher in the upcoming movie Mamma Mia 2 — explained that she’d heard the bizarre story from comedian Sarah Silverman, who used to date Brit thesp Michael Sheen.
‘Sarah Silverman told me that Michael Sheen refers to his penis as “The Great Christine Baranski”,’ she said.
‘I have no idea why. I’d like to meet him one day and ask him what was he thinking,’ she added — before joking: ‘Perhaps it’s because of my long-lasting career or maybe that I am long and thin!’
Not to be outdone, Rupe explained he’d had to wear a fat suit when taking on the role of playwright Oscar Wilde recently, but that certain aspects of the costume were somewhat distracting for the audience.
Referencing Baranski’s earlier comments, he said: ‘I had a low-hanging bum, moobs and my very own “Great Christina Baranski” before I realised that the people in the front few rows could focus on nothing else so I had it cut down to size!’
