Big Ben

by | 2nd, March 2004

‘SOME of Hollywood’s best actors and actresses have come over to London recently to have a spiffing time brushing up on their Dick Van Dyke accents and treading the boards of the West End.

Delicious served with cheese and/or mustard

We think of Kevin Spacey, for instance, of Nicole Kidman, of Kathleen Turner and of Jessica Lange.

But for every Chateaubriand, there is a ham – and the Enquirer has news that, fresh from winning two Razzies for his appalling performance in the execrable Gigli, Ben Affleck is London-bound.

In the meantime, however, the Enquirer reports on how Ben was bumped as grand marshal at this year’s Daytona 500 just before going on…by President George W Bush.

As the President’s popularity ratings tumble, he no doubt thought it would be a good idea to try to canvas a few votes among the petrol-heads that make up the Florida crowd.

But what he probably hadn’t expected was that the story of ‘Ben and Bush’s Big Day At The Races’ would share a page in the Enquirer with news that Ellen DeGeneres and lesbian lover Alexandra Hedison are planning to wed.

Not if the President gets his way, they won’t.’
