Lane's Fury With Brit Journalist

American funnyman NATHAN LANE is looking forward to his run in THE PRODUCERS on the London stage - assuming British journalist TOBY YOUNG stays well away from him.

Recalling his interview with HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS AND ALIENATE PEOPLE author Young for VANITY FAIR magazine in New York, Lane says he loathes the reporter.

Lane says, "He was a total a*shole. He was really unpleasant, nasty, asking me, 'Are you Jewish?' and, 'Everyone knows you're gay.'

"I just remember his awfulness. Toby Young is memorable for all the wrong reasons."

THE BIRDCAGE star is reprising his Broadway TONY award-winning role as MAX BIALYSTOCK in the West End production of The Producers, which premieres in the British capital tonight (09NOV04).
