Miriam Margolyes COMES FOR Steve Martin

Claims he was an asshole to her on set of Little Shop of Horrors.

She's gotta sell some books, bitches!

Farting, or discussing farting, is not enough to move those units!

Steve Martin is known for being an asshole. This isn't news and I doubt anyone really cares that he is considering his age.

by Anonymousreply 1September 16, 2023 2:05 PM

Yeah, assholes like him usually have their own version of past events in their heads.

by Anonymousreply 2September 16, 2023 2:07 PM

Every time Steve Martin comes up I think about how stinking rich he is now. Sure he made good money making movies but he has been collecting art obsessively since he was 21 and has an incredible art collection which undoubtedly has exponentially increased in value since then.

No, he isn’t. Exactly the opposite.

Miriam is the one known for being a non-stop problem.

She’s been ripped to shreds over this one.

Steve Martin has a long history of being one of the biggest assholes to ever exist.

However, he also had a long stretch of being hot as fuck, and may have substantial sizemeat, so the DL jury tends to consider acquittal in response to any accusations and/or controversies.

What did he do? I know Chevy Chase and Bill Murray are assholes but this is the first I’ve heard about Steve.

R5 you have no idea what you're talking about. I don't know who this woman is but I've heard numerous stories about Steve being a cunt for decades.

by Anonymousreply 9September 16, 2023 2:37 PM

R9 in gay/private circles perhaps

But in the mainstream, Steve Martin was never known as an asshole. That's why he was so popular for so long. He headlined hit movies in the '80s, '90s, and 2000s, mainly comedies and family films.

R10 ,that doesn't really mean much. Julia was the biggest movie star of the 90s and she did that as "America's Sweethheart" while being a bitch in real life.

by Anonymousreply 13September 16, 2023 3:16 PM

If what she said happened, it would mean the director allowed him to run amok (and hurt an actor?).

Hard to believe.

I can believe he could be a pain in some ways. But not this.

You've been following her publicity tour, OP? I've seen two interviews with her recently and she farted in both of them. Not at all funny.

In the late 80’s at Butterfield’s restaurant in West Hollywood, I was having dinner with a friend. It was just us and then at another table was Steve Martin and 2 other people. The server came over and said Steve wanted to know if it was okay if he smoked. We said it was fine with us. Most LA assholes would not have asked so I thought that he was an okay person. I doubt Chevy would have asked or cared but would have just lit up and told us to fuck off.

by Anonymousreply 26September 17, 2023 12:08 AM

R26, did he ask you if it was okay if he farted?

“Mind if I smoke?” “Mind if I FART?”

And then did he ask you if you wanted to get real small?

by Anonymousreply 27September 17, 2023 12:33 AM

I believe Miriam could be a pain in real life, but she is entertaining. I heard her this week in a podcast imitating Maggie Smith and it was fun. Apparently they went to the same school and the school wanted to have a Maggie Smith auditorium so they contacted Miriam to sound Maggie on the idea. So in the set of Harry Potter Miriam approaches Maggie on this and Maggie says (here Miriam imitates her perfectly), No, she wouldn’t like, the school was to snobby. Then she turns to Miriam and says But you would like that, wouldn’t you Miriam? To her credit Miriam admits she was right.

His constant King Tut thing on SNL annoyed me endlessly. The only time I was amused by him was in the movie where he called his dog Shithead.

I've met Steve Martin on several occasions and he was nothing but gracious. He also came to the aid of a friend of mine who got airsick on an island-hopper airplane, handing him a vomit bag and making sure he was okay. My heart bleeds for the hypersensitive Miriam Margolyes, whoever the fuck she is.

by Anonymousreply 56September 21, 2023 7:47 PM

Bob Newhart was and is a decent, thoughtful, private person.

Don Rickles and his wife were among the Newharts' best friends.

Carl Reiner was another genuinely nice person. As are Conan O'Brien, Jeselnik (funny, huh?), Bill Burr, Mulaney, and other one wouldn't expect.

My favorite Bob Newhart story, and he's told this himself, was when he was on Newhart. Big wig executives said to him, "Bob, we think the show needs a little freshening. We want you and Joanna to have a baby. What do you think?"

And Bob said, "I think that's a fine idea. Who are you going to get to play Bob?"

I recall some mumblings about him, but the worst I recall is that he is a rather quiet man and doesn't always jump to reenact old punchlines from the late 1970s. Can't say that I blame him. I've heard that he is also very attentive to details, not necessarily a bad thing for an actor and certainly not for a director. I don't know anyone who knows him from his entertainment career, but I do know a few people who met him professionally or socially and each said he was surprisingly charming and engaging -- the latter a way that some celebrities steer conversation to something of mutual interest not just someone else's interest in their celebrity status.

His response to Margoyles seems complete, the director's account has the note of reliability as well. Margoyles would say anything if it got her name in The Roysto Crow newspaper, and if she had to say something bad about someone (herself not excepted to be fair), she would be right on it all the faster.

Martin may not be a prince but her account sounds utterly made up:

[quote] “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.”

She makes it sound as though he spent the whole day slapping her around, knocking her down, and slamming doors into her face...for sport.
