Jeremy Irons: Older men 'touched' me

Feb 13 2013, 11:32am CST | by

Jeremy Irons says men used to "feel him up".

The 'Beautiful Creatures' actor - who infamously said women should "deal with" men touching their bottoms in a 2011 interview - claims he's a very sensual person and doesn't regret his controversial comment because he had to endure older men touching him up when he first started out in the business.

He said: "I love touching. I always touch people. I don't think I said 'bottom' but of course I was misquoted. Basically, I said that any self-respecting woman wouldn't tell you to f**k off.

"I think we're very robust as human beings. I had people when I was younger trying to feel me up. Older men. I just told them to get lost."

The 64-year-old actor is known for his outspoken opinions, which have earned him a reputation as being difficult on set, and he has actively tried to put his past behind him since shooting 1992 movie 'Damage' with Juliette Binoche, after she complained about working with him.

Jeremy told The Times newspaper: "I've grown up since then. I've realized there is a very thin line between being a perfectionist and a ****. I was sometimes. I was so concerned to get it absolute right... I think it culminated on 'Damage'. I realized that actually there is no right way.

"And if everybody is having a good time when they are shooting, it's more likely to be a good movie than if there are ructions and difficulties. I thought, just forget it Jeremy."

Jason Momoa reportedly cast as Aquaman in ‘Batman Vs Superman’: ugh?

Jun 16 2014 7:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Does anyone else miss Khal Drogo? I wish Jason Momoa was still on Game of Thrones. GoT was supposed to be Jason’s launching pad to bigger and better things – he was supposed to become a movie star, he was supposed to be huge. But post-GoT, very little has happened. He did the Conan the Barbarian remake, he’s done a couple of action movies and he’s tried his hand at another TV series. So he’s still searching for the next big thing ...

If there's one thing Spider-Man 3 taught us, other than the fact that we never want to see Tobey Maguire dance ever again, it's that too many characters sink a superhero movie.It was a problem faced by this summer's Spidey sequel and it looks like it'll plague Zack Snyder's much-anticipated and much-feared Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, which hits in 2016.The latest rumour doing the rounds is that Emily Blunt, c ...
