How to Lose Friends and Alienate People


I was trying to keep it quiet but the a producer introduced me saying: ‘This is Simon. He did that thing about w***ing over you in Spaced.’

I was mortified. What do you say to that? But she took it well and I’ve given her the DVDs to watch.

It also made it a bit awkward telling my wife who my new co-star was.

You know how couples have a list of famous people you would be allowed to sleep with if you ever had the chance.

Well for most people that would never be an issue, but Gillian is on my list.Of course I didn’t act on it.
