Maggie Smith is Glad to See the End of 'Downton Abbey' and Other Slightly More Surprising News
Maggie Smith was on The Graham Norton show to discuss what it’s like to become mainstream famous relatively late in life with the roles of Minerva McGonagall and the Dowager Countess. She gets in a few digs at American Downton fans in the process, and reveals that she’s never watched the period drama, personally.
So there’s at least one cast members who’s not sad to see the door shut on Highclere Castle.
Also on the show last night were Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller promoting their new movie Burnt. It was apparently Sienna Miller’s first experience on the show. I guess that’s why Bradley Cooper wore a horrifying outfit, to make her feel at least (slightly) better dressed and give her a little confidence. Cooper also discussed one of his more embarrassing paparazzi experiences to really lighten up the atmosphere.
But really all of that was apparently an excuse to get people on his couch to talk about “nutscaping” the internet “trend” whereby individuals photograph lovely landscapes with just a bit of their scrotums tastefully adorning the top edge of the photo. As someone who does not have a scrotum, I personally find this completely baffling and I will not thank you for attempting to explain it to me.
