Miriam Margolyes Accuses Arnold Schwarzenegger Of Farting In Her Face

Actor Miriam Margolyes has total recall of Arnold Schwarzenegger intentionally farting in her face on the set of “End of Days” ― and says she hasn’t forgiven him.

“He farted in my face,” Margolyes claimed on the “I’ve Got News for You” podcast posted Monday. “Now, I fart, of course I do — but I don’t fart in people’s faces. He did it deliberately, right in my face.”

Margolyes, who played Professor Pomona Sprout in a few “Harry Potter” films, said there was nothing magical about working with the “rude” and “full of himself” Schwarzenegger.

In 1999′s “End of Days,” Schwarzenegger plays an ex-cop who tries to stop Satan from spreading his seed as the new millennium nears.

“I was playing Satan’s sister and he was killing me, so he had me in a position where I couldn’t escape and lying on the floor. And he just farted,” Margolyes explained. “It wasn’t on film, it was in one of the pauses, but I haven’t forgiven him for it.”

Maybe we should call him Arnold Fartzenegger.

She's running out of stories.

As gross as it is he did this (allegedly), it's kind of creepy and boorish she should talk about this more than twenty years after the fact. She holds grudges for decades and decades against people.

In his memoir, Richard E. Grant said she was really weird around him when they were filming "The Age of Innocence," and that she always wanted to talk about farting with him.

She is promoting the new edition of her book of of anecdotes. She's been making the rounds, retelling the "favorites" as requested. She is not launching a campaign against Ahnold.

I’m guessing the photo OP used was taken after the alleged incident?

I can't stand her - she just constantly rants on about endless slights from 60 years ago.

She hasn't realised that if everyone has a problem with you, then maybe you are the problem?

Gross. Women shouldn't talk about that stuff. Ugh.

She’s a horrible person. People consider her ‘beloved’ because she’s old and ugly and gets invited on tv to say outrageous things.

Her stance on antisemitism is disgusting.

She'll put her name to any Israel/Palestine letter supported by Jew obsessed celebrities and holocaust deniers and defend Jeremy Corbyn, posh anti Jewish tropes herself and then claim to be the victim of antisemitism herself.

Howard Jacobson had this to say about her in an Independent article you that can't be linked to

[quote]Meanwhile, Miriam Margolyes – who could do with a few of Russell Brand’s words, since she has none of her own – is doing her giggly thing about the nature of contemporary anti-Semitism, which she calls “horrible”. “I don’t think people like Jews,” she has just rocked readers of Radio Times by telling them. A judgement she backs up with her usual long sense of history. “They never have. English literature, my great love, is full of greasy and treacherous Jews. I’m lucky they like me, and one always needs a Jewish accountant.”

[quote]Why greasy and treacherous should have been the terms she reached for, when it’s actually hard to think of many Jews in English literature who quite answer to that description and when there are countless writers in English from Shakespeare onwards for whom the Jew is a complex and even heroic figure, is perhaps a question for a psychiatrist. As for her joke about Jewish accountants – why make it if she is concerned about the spread of anti-Semitism, central to whose ideology is the nexus of Jews and money? Couldn’t she have left that one to the Liberal Democrats?

[quote]But if we allow Miriam Margolyes her eternally detested greasy Jew, it’s hard to follow her reasoning that it’s Israel that makes the world detest his greasiness. “Israel is stupid for allowing people to vent their anti-Semitism,” she reasons, which begs the question of the view of Israel which anti-Semitism itself begets, elides all distinctions between Israel as a country and Jews as a people, allows that anti-Semitism is OK until it’s “vented”, and assumes a nation is responsible for the irrational hatred others already bear its citizens. If it’s true that people didn’t like Jews long before there was an Israel – for confirmation of which see her brief history of English literature – then anti-Semitism, vented or otherwise, cannot be blamed on it. The implication of this daffy intervention into matters of serious concern is that they aren’t serious at all: anti-Semitism is simply something Jews bring on themselves.

Arnold is a homosexual and not overly fond of fish.

She's a fucking nasty old cunt. Because she's old, people think she's a real card. Well she's not, she's just gross.

She's the equivalent of those horrible loud girls who are 'just putting it out there.'

While that sucks, i think Miriam got off easy compared to how Arnold has treated other women on set pre governator.

There's always someone ready to rush in and spin things so that they can point out that the person acting crude or awful is, in fact, the real victim in all this.

She's told this story before. As r4 says, she's doing the rounds, telling old favorite anecdotes, which she's collected in a book.

It only took ten replies to bring the whole thing back to Corbyn, certain Brits really are insane. He will live rent-free in their heads forever, just like Hillary does in deplorables' heads.

In any case, my favourite anecdote of hers is that she had her first orgasm at age three.

Have you ever tried wearing a bra, R26? They’re fucking torture!

There may be other reasons to hate on her, but having to look at actual “unsupported” breasts shouldn’t be one of them (Women have breasts, and they’re not always “perky” and beautiful. Get over it.)

She's just another celebrity narcissist who happens to be very ugly and therefore goes to extremes with her personality as she could never gain attention from her looks. She is a decent character actress, and I have found her amusing in smaller doses, but the more exposure I have to her the less I like her.

It was the fact it was a Nazi fart that made it so offensive, but they scrubbed that out of the story.

After all, she does have an OBE.

I can’t be the one who starts another Margolyes post…and it may already exist.

“I was hit all day by doors opening in my face; repeatedly punched, slapped and knocked down by an unlovely and unapologetic Steve Martin – perhaps he was method acting – and came home grumpy with a splitting headache.”

When I first read Miriam Margolyes’ pejorative account of our scene in Little Shop of Horrors, I was surprised. My memory is that we had a good communication as professional actors. But when it is implied that I harmed her or was in some way careless about doing the stunts, I have to object. I remember taking EXTREME caution regarding the fake punch – the same caution I would use with any similar scene. She assured me she felt fine, and we did a few successful takes and stopped. There was never any physical contact between her and me, accidental or otherwise, in this scene or any other we shot.”
