“‘I can’t just get anyone pregnant, it has got to be the right person,’ he says.” (But he says he doesn’t want to meet her on the Internet?) (One step forward two steps back, gals.)

  1. Big deal, Benedict! More than half the world’s population can’t get any woman pregnant! You’re not so special!

  2. Is he talking about relationships here, or is this some sort of Gatekeeper/Keymaster situation? I’d read the article, but to be honest I’m not going to read the article.

  3. I like this guy, he seems okay. I don’t like him the way that he could get me pregnant but I would share a pint with him.

    ‘It’s all gone a little bit vertiginous recently. Fame is a weird one. You need to distance yourself from it. People see a value in you that you don’t see yourself. So when I’m told of my sex-symbol status and all that nonsense I find it laughable, silly. I mean, look.’ He gestures towards his face. ‘I’m 36 and I’ve been looking at this same old mush all my life.’

  4. Just because he doesn’t want to meet his baby mama on the internet doesn’t mean we are out of the running! We just have to manufacture chance encounters. Like, for example, go to a hotel where you know he’s staying and pretend to have a seizure in the lobby.

    • Or you can run the long con and give birth in a park he happens to be walking through. Only recommended for the very committed.

    • This has nothing to do with anything, really, but when Sir Peter O’Toole was nominated for an Academy Award I was working the night shift at the news in L.A. And sometimes, when you’re, say, writing about the worst of humanity for eight hours, you want to have a drink after work… but your after work is at 7 a.m. so the least psychotic thing you could do is have a mimosa at a hotel cocktail bar with a boozy old actor that has jet lag and will absolutely be up, drinking rum or something because he’s goddamn Peter O’Toole. So I had this whole plan hatched out — use our assignment desk and entertainment “tips” to figure out where he was staying, meet him at the hotel all casually like I get mimosas there all the time after work and befriend Sir Peter O’Toole. Then I learned he was probably in Beverly Hills and the traffic to get there and back to where I lived is the worst plus I don’t like drinking and driving… So anyway, I never met him and we never had that drink and now he’s quit the business so I probably won’t have that chance again.

      I guess my point is, that’s a pretty damn good idea.

  5. He’s got some money in the bank account … ladies.

  6. He’s scared of meeting someone really Chavy from the internet.

  7. Of course he’s moaning about this because John can’t get pregnant.
