Just resting, duckie

I don’t know whether the UK press has picked this one up. John Hurt, in Dinard for the Film Festival, confesses that in 1993 he bought a house in Brittany but then forgot about it. He couldn’t remember where it was or who he bought it from.

Ouest France reports that the house has been traced. (It hadn’t moved an inch from the original spot.) Hurt was taken down and was photographed examining the property which needs a bit of work doing. Next time a member of the acting profession claims that they don’t make much money, remind them that most of us don’t have the luxury of buying additional houses and then forgetting what we did with them.
