Actor John Hurt has made a drunken spectacle of himself again - this time
at London's Empire Film Awards on Wednesday night (04FEB04).
The 64-year-old was in the news yesterday (05FEB04) when it was revealed
he had been ejected from a lapdancing bar after being drunk and offensive - and
gave another alcohol fuelled performance at the awards bash at the DORCHESTER
Hurt presented a Career Achievement Award to his ALIEN co-star SIGOURNEY
WEAVER, but struggled to read from the autocue as he introduced her.
One guest told Britain's DAILY MAIL newspaper, "It was absolutely
excruciating. You didn't know whether to feel sorry for him or just tell him to
get on with it."
Hurt then admitted to reporters from the DAILY MIRROR he likes to dress up
in women's clothing.
He said, "Every man wants to be a woman, and ones who deny it are
"I'd love to be a woman. You have beautiful clothes - all soft blouses and
pretty skirts. I like dressing up."
Slurring his words, he then went on to proposition the journalists,
referring to their lapdance story.
He asked, "Do you girls offer yourselves, do you, do you? You're a naughty
one. What are we going to do with you? I bet you've got really big nipples.
