“I felt I’d spent two years having to fight for Hugh to do the movie,” Julian shared. “With people saying, ‘He’s not a movie star’, and then, at the premiere, all these fans turn out to see him.”

    Never eat hotdogs because I know what they are made from. I do, however, appreciate Mr. Laurie and his many talents.

    Hugh Laurie is indeed sometimes inappropriately dressed. And the expression on his face?! :/ A smile would not be? He could sometimes smile, right? Where is that shy smile? :(

    It looks like Mr. Laurie put on a pound or twenty since “House” was cancelled.
