Judi Dench Hasn't Seen 'Cats,' Reacts to Her Razzie Nomination

Judi Dench says that she still hasn’t seen her controversial movie Cats and she’s reacting to the news that she was nominated for Worst Supporting Actress at the Razzies.

The 85-year-old actress played the role of Old Deuteronomy in the film and she says she hasn’t even read about what people think of the movie.

“I didn’t read anything about the response to it, nor have I seen it,” Judi said on BBC Radio 4 (via EW).

“I’ve only seen a picture of myself [from the film],” she added. “I once had a cat [who looked] like that, called Carpet, and I didn’t realize I was playing Carpet. I thought I was playing a kind of, you know, mangier cat who didn’t have much fur. I didn’t realize I was this wonderful show cat!”

Judi says she hasn’t watched the movie because of her struggle with macular degeneration, which makes it hard for her to read or view films.

“I was aware of the response only slightly, I think people had been rather kind to me,” she said. When told she is nominated for a Razzie, Judi said, “Oh, am I? That would be good! As far as I know, that’s a first!”
