“You see, the one place I know where it seems totally acceptable to lie is on an actor’s CV. The job of “pretending” just seems to leak on to the page. I know an actor with “badger taming” on his résumé. Yes, I can ride a horse, play the violin and speak German. More or less. Looks good and probably won’t ever be called upon. Probably. Until it is. Giddy up.”
This reminds me of that time he said he “read English a little at Cambringe”. You know, as in 2 dissertations and just missing a First due to being on tour playing the lead in MacBeth. Yep, just a little.
