There’s no reason to be particularly proud of this. But it is nice to think that somebody I rather like skinned his knees on the same tarmac I did.
I can’t match that, but in secondary school I was in the same class for 5 years as matinee hearthrob Hollywood screen goddess Jonny Lee Miller, grandson of Bernard Lee who played M in all the good Bond films, and former husband of Angelina Jolie. It would be tempting and easy to be nasty about him, but he was a really nice bloke so I won’t. Neither of my grandfathers ever appeared, to my knowledge, on film – I don’t think they had CCTV back then – and Angelina Jolie has never agreed to marry me, but it’s such a relief to see that in this picture he’s thinning a bit on top, whereas I’m not.
