Gandolfini.s Flower Dilemma

THE SOPRANOS star JAMES GANDOLFINI was faced with a botanical dilemma recently when he was asked to name a recently-discovered flower.

Gandolfini, who plays mob boss TONY SOPRANO in the hit TV show, was deluged with suggestions from cheeky pals - but wanted to ensure that the name of the flower rewarded the hard work put in to finding it.

He told guests at the benefit for the AFRICAN RAINFOREST CONSERVANCY, "They came up with some really good ones, like the 'Gandolpansy', the 'Gandolfini', the 'Poison Tony' and much worse."

However, the kind hearted actor decided to name the bloom after MOSES MWANGOKAE who found it.

He added, "This man's out there doing all the work. He doesn't need some fat celebrity to name the flower he discovered."
