NME reports that, during a recent appearance on the “I’ve Got News for You” podcast, British-Australian acting legend Miriam Margolyes shared a very interesting story about working with Arnold Schwarzenegger on the 1999 action movie End of Days. Arnold played an ex-cop who tries to stop Satan from spreading his seed, and Miriam played Satan’s evil sister. In the film (11% on Rotten Tomatoes, by the way), Arnold and Miriam have a knock-down, drag-out fight scene. 81-year-old Miriam says that while they were filming, Arnie farted in her face while she was lying on the floor and “couldn’t escape.” Well, that sucks, but accidents happen, right? Nope! Miriam says, “he did it deliberately, right in my face.” Whoa, that’s a low blow!
Miriam says she still hasn’t forgiven 74-year-old Arnold for his anal attack, via NME:
“He was actually quite rude. He farted in my face. Now, I fart, of course, I do – but I don’t fart in people’s faces. He did it deliberately, right in my face,” Margolyes said.
“I was playing Satan’s sister and he was killing me, so he had me in a position where I couldn’t escape and lying on the floor. And he just farted.” She added: “It wasn’t on film, it was in one of the pauses, but I haven’t forgiven him for it.”
Miriam goes on to say that she wasn’t a fan of Arnold in general:
“He’s a bit too full of himself and I don’t care for him at all. He’s a Republican, which I don’t like.”
Hmmm… I wonder if Arnold’s fart was politically motivated. Here’s the relevant part of Miriam’s podcast appearance:
OK, here we go:Total Recall? More like Anal Fecal. True Lies? More like Toot (in my) Eyes. Terminator 2: Judgment Day? More like Turd-minator 2: Pungent Spray. Sigh. I’m not good at this, am I?
