And yet where — where, I ask you — is our Mr. Bean/Batman crossover?
Rowan Atkinson and Christian Bale, 1985
“She makes these like needlework embroideries on set in the tedium of filming”, says MacFadyen, “but they are all: ‘You Are a Cunt’. And she gives them as presents. And it’s Dame Judi Dench. And she is doing this beautifully, intricate, ornate (work). You kind of see the work materializing as the shoot goes on. Like: ‘You Are a Fucking Shit.’ Knightley never received her embroidered cushion from Dench but remarks: “I love that! She gives this fantastic air. She just sits there and she embroiders and you think: ‘Oh, that’s so nice! It’s Judi Dench. It’s so quaint; she’s embroidering a cushion,’ and you go: ‘What are you embroidering?’ And (it says): ‘Fuck!’ Apparently she’s got hundreds of them just covered in swear words or rude sayings.”
For a year or so if you typed “Ryan North wife” into Google it said “Dame Judi Dench, Spouse” and those were wonderful times, she is so cool!
I mean, really…
Orson Welles and Laurel & Hardy
The woman who made your Wifi working.
Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian-born American actress. Max Reinhardt called her the “most beautiful woman in Europe” due to her “strikingly dark exotic looks”.
Mathematically talented, Lamarr came up with an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.
In more frivolous accomplishments, she was also the first person to have an orgasm on screen. Or a simulated one, I guess.
Jim Thorpe, age 24, at the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm.
Born on Indian territory to parents of mixed ancestry, Thorpe won gold in the pentathlon and the decathlon, dominating eight of the fifteen events.
He was later was stripped of both medals when it was revealed that he had played professional baseball before the Olympics. After the games, he played professional football, baseball, and basketball until the age of 41, when the Great Depression ended his athletic career.
“Someone had stolen his shoes just before he won his gold. He found a mismatched pair in a trash bin and wore extra socks because one shoe was too big.”

Rubyberry: In case you wanted more Charlie Chaplin
Never enough Chaplin! This looks like it’s from the year before the last photograph, 1915, when he would have been 22.
Al Pacino and Christopher Walken
Grumpy old men.
