There are many rumors and blatant stories surrounding the actors of “Harry Potter”! An actress recently shared excerpts from the dramas on the set. Someone who never appeared in these stories is Miriam Margolyes. Fans still know her from “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” as Prof. Sprout. Well, after seeing the actress live in an interview, we have to wonder a little that she wasn’t even mentioned in any behind-the-scenes story, because the good guy is a pretty funny and direct person! She has some Hollywood stars on her hate list and has no problem with sharing them openly with other people.
Margolyes hates Winona Ryder
On the Graham Norton Show, the actress doesn’t mince her words when it comes to fellow actress Winona Ryder. You have to know: Margolyes HATES Ryder because she “stole” an Oscar from her! “I should have been nominated, but I wasn’t,” the actress recalls in an interview. “I was really good in the movie ‘The Age of Innocence. I was wonderful at it. And the reason I wasn’t nominated was because of Winona Ryder!“ She was in the running for the best supporting role in this film, but – in Margolyes’ opinion – she should actually have been nominated in the” Best Leading Role “category. She also doesn’t have good words for the characters in The Social Network: “I thought [all of the characters in the movie] were utterly awkward. Every single one of them! Wonderfully acted, but terrible people.“
Nor is she a fan of “Mamma Mia”, or “Friends” – or Arnold Schwarzenegger
When the musical film “Mamma Mia” is mentioned in another interview, the actress surprisingly does not have a good opinion about it: “ That was a horrible film. “In a nutshell (while an actor from the film is sitting next to her). She also never saw “Friends,” as she said directly to actor Matthew Perry, who starred on the show when the two are interviewed together. The show’s co-creators just didn’t go down well with her. “I liked David Crane, but I couldn’t stand Marta Kauffmann. I thought she was a monster,” Margolyes remembers the encounter. Well then. However, she shares the funniest story with Arnold Schwarzenegger, whom – surprise – she doesn’t like either. She remembers a movie they made together and the reason why she’s not a fan: “Firstly because he ignored me and thought I was insignificant. I really didn’t like this behavior. Second, because he poked my face. I lay on the floor for one scene. I played Satan’s sister and was killed and had to lie on the floor.“ And while she was lying there, the actor went over to her and poked her face because he obviously thought it was funny. Oooookay! We are big fans of Margolyes and her stories and can hardly wait for the next interview with her!
