Tattoo to Weinstein and fear of the dark: surprising facts about the actress Judi DenchPictolic
Judi Dench is a famous British actress, but the international success came to her immediately. You probably know her as agent one of the several movies about James bond, but this is only a small part of her biography!
Few people know that Dench has a tattoo associated with the controversial producer Harvey Weinstein. It says "JD loves HW" ("DD likes XB") and a heart tattooed on the buttocks! Tattoos are done in gratitude because he helped her become the star of many famous movies, from "Chocolate" to "Shakespeare in love" (for the latter she received the "Oscar").
After a scandal, Dench said that Harvey Weinstein helped me with a career, but she knew nothing about these sex scandals!
She also said that she's never bothered. Weinstein received 23 years in prison.
Judi Dench was married for 30 years — more than many well-known actors. They are actor Michael Williams were married in 1971 and in 2001 he died of cancer.
Interestingly, Williams had sent her a red rose every Friday, no matter where it was at this point his wife. Very romantic!
Dench has coped with grief, but her daughter is trying to tell us something Williams was unable. She began to drink heavily, and two weeks after the funeral, Judy sent her to compulsory treatment. Feint, who also became an actress, still grateful to her for that.
A few years after her husband's death in 2010, Dench had met a new man — David mills. He is a biologist, who invited Judi Dench to your ornithological center, where they began to chat. But marry him she never came out.
Her phobia is so strong that not even Dench worked in the garden. It's hard to believe that the owner of "Oscar" and one of the best performers of the roles in Shakespeare's plays are almost never out in the garden! In addition, she is afraid of the dark and never goes to the movies, because there she is attacked by claustrophobia. Not very convenient if you're an actress!
In 2012, the actress was diagnosed with "macular degeneration" — a gradual loss of vision.
For each role, Judy is very serious — as to the last. In 1976, she played in "Comedy of errors" by Shakespeare, and in the day of the premiere the Director found her crying.
She loves to play a new role. It may seem that the actress only selects glamorous characters, but it's not. In 2009 she played in the Thriller "Fury" with Jude law and Steve Buscemi.
In ordinary life, 85-year-old actress is also learning new things. She doesn't like to sit idly by. Recently learned to carve figurines out of soap. Dench did not know how to cook, so they held cooking classes. She considers it important to continue to learn. The beginning of a career in the movie Judi Dench recalls with mixed feelings.
In those years she played in the theater, and one Director said that her face is not suitable for movie.
The uncertainty in the forces chased the actress for many years.
In a recent interview Dench said that if she in 1968 someone said that will play dozens of interesting roles in movies, she just wouldn't believe! Besides, she only loved the theatre.
One of the last films Dench — the film adaptation of the musical "Cats". The actress hasn't seen the final version, she only knew how she looks there. The suit reminded her of the cat she once was.
The actress is not going to stop shooting despite its venerable age.
I must say that in the coming year will be as many as four movies with her participation. Miss her really busy!
