Yes, I know this story was a few days ago but one thing has been really getting on my tits about it.
Helen Mirren said she used to 'Love cocaine'. Fair enough - lots of people do.
Then she said she stopped when she found out that fugitive Nazi war criminal was profiting from it.
a bit of cocaine. I loved coke. I never did a lot, just a little bit at parties.
“But what ended it for me was when they caught Klaus Barbie, the Butcher of Lyon, in the early `80s.
“He was hiding in South America and living off the proceeds of being a cocaine baron.
“And I read that in the paper, and all the cards fell into place and I saw how my little sniff of cocaine at a party had an absolute direct route to this f...ing horrible man in South America."
My question is:
WHY DID IT TAKE THE FACT THAT A NAZI WAS PROFITING FROM IT TO MAKE HER STOP?
Had she previously assumed that the type of people who generally control cocaine production are lovely, hard-working kindly old Werthers grandads with a Father Christmas and the elves type set-up?
Sheesh - what a knob.
Nice boobs for an old lady though.
