Judi Dench Embroiders NSFW Gifts For Co-Stars

Dame Judi Dench funny

Dame Judi Dench is your new favorite celebrity, and it has nothing to do with her Oscar and Tony-winning performances. It has everything to do with her quirky hobby of carefully handcrafting embroidered gifts for her co-stars with NSFW sayings.

According to Jezebel, Dame Judi Dench practices the somewhat-stereotypical hobby of needlework and often embroiders little pieces while she’s sitting around doing movie shoots.

The twist here is that Dench’s embroidery is apparently all swear words.

According to Angus MacFayden, who was Dench’s co-star in the 2005 Joe Wright adaptation of Pride Prejudice, the 78-year-old troublemaker makes beautifully ornate embroideries during her downtime on sets, and they always pull a laugh from unsuspecting cast and crew.

“She makes these like needlework embroideries on set in the tedium of filming”, MacFayden said, “but they are all: ‘You Are a C*nt’. And she gives them as presents. And it’s Dame Judi Dench. And she is doing this beautifully, intricate, ornate (work). You kind of see the work materializing as the shoot goes on. Like: ‘You Are a F*cking Sh*t.’”

This is a hilarious bit of news, with one commenter calling it “my favorite piece of information that I have ever learned in the history of ever,” but remember that this is the same Judi Dench who once said:

“I think you`ve got to have your feet planted firmly on the ground, especially in this business, and you must not believe things that are said or written about you, because everything gets out of proportion one way or the other.”

Hopefully it’s true!

    Wrong actor, Matthew Macfadyen was in P&P with her, not Angus.
