In the real world people who look like Bill Nighy don't have people who look like Rachel Weisz chasing after them, unless, of course, they are Bill Nighy.

David Hare has been famous for so long he probably doesn't know anybody who isn't of Bill Nighy's order of famousness.

Am I jealous of my old school fellow?


On the other hand when I watched his movie last night I was absolutely wanting to cheer for it. I thought he was going to give us some truth.  What we got was warmed over le Carre- spiced with zingy dialogue- enacted by Hare's famous mates the cream of the British acting profession. You know what? Ralph Fiennes is even scarier when he's wearing a nose.

Actually just to wade in here for a second, when I was 23, I was madly in love with a man old enough to be my father (there was a 35-year age difference). Yes, he WAS famous, but I found that to be a negative thing as it meant lots of women were after him. We were together 3 years and I left because of that. And no, although he had money, he didn't throw it around and I wasn't there for the money. I worked, looked after my own bills and was still totally besotted by the man.

But I do agree when older women start pulling the young men, there's definitely a lot of nasty things said and it sure doesn't happen a lot at the cinema and on TV (without it being done as a joke).

But your older man was a musician (wasn't he?) and not a civil servant with conservative tastes...
