OLIVER THOMAS, who shot to fame after starring opposite Joan Collins in THE STUD, was horrified to her Roy's account of working with the Austin Powers beauty - in which he rubbished her acting skills, described her as a diva and told of her trailer sex romps with lover Arun Nayar.
And the chivalrous 54-year-old is keen to set the record straight.
He fumes, "Is this man a pervert? What type of person goes around listening at people's trailers? What's wrong with this man? It's creepy. I am flabbergasted at his remarks.
"Far from her treating her co-stars with contempt, the first thing Liz did when I arrived was to offer me a cup of tea for which I was very grateful.
"She is a lady. She is a consummate professional. I cannot understand this flak being directed at her, especially as she recommended Roy for the job."27/02/2004 13:59
