CHAMPAGNE

SPECIAL

KENNETH BRANAGH

Star of My Week With Marilyn,

Wallander

"I feel like I've been blessed with a ton

of little champagne moments rather

than big ones, but a really important

one was in 1996. Jack Lemmon was

being honoured at the Kennedy

Center Honors in Washington

and we went to present our

� lm of Hamlet, which he

was in. I took my parents to

the premiere and the White

House. We met the Clintons

and President Clinton was like,

'Ah, Mr Branagh, big fans of

your work!' I thought my parents

were going to pass out - so

proud! When we got back that

night, like three little naughty

kids in a fancy hotel room

in Washington, we got the

Champagne out."

RACHEL WEISZStar of The Constant Gardener, The Fountain

"I was in The Runaway Jury. It said on the poster: 'Cusack.

Hackman. Ho man. Weisz'. And I thought, 'That's

completely ridiculous!' I wasn't very good in the ƒ lm either.

It was a little bit absurd to me. Gene Hackman! I don't think

it gets much greater than that. He's something else."

stars need to pinch themselves sometimes.

WORDS JAMES MOTTRAM

Chris RockStar of Madagascar, Top Five

"The last Champagne moment I had,

and this was so long ago, it was

the day I got Saturday Night

Live. That was kind of the

biggest moment in my

career. It changed my life.

I was poor, then suddenly

I was making money.

My life's never been the

same since. It's like being

accepted into Harvard, I

deƒ nitely got on my knees

and thanked the stars!"

MOMENT Lily James

Star of Downton Abbey, Cinderella

"I have to admit I'm compelled

to open a bottle of Champagne

all the time! I do love it.

I opened one the other day for

my fl atmate who is an actor.

He just got signed to an agent

and we had a bottle of

Champagne together."
