Resolved Question: Who would you want to
Stirling Moss has caused controversy by saying he would not want a gay person playing the part of him in a film of his life. Would it bother you, if they portrayed you accurately in the film? Ralph, he used the phrase "I would not want a poofter to play me" which caused some people to get their knickers in a twist, silly I know but so is worrying about an actor's sexuality.
TU to all from me btw, thanks. Sorry all but I am still hoping and waiting for the perfect answer which reads, "I would have Johnny Depp play me as I am the spitting image of him, fancy meeting up?", ah well a girl can dream, lol!
