Burrows' Sunglasses Stolen By Ex-president
Hollywood actress SAFFRON BURROWS had her sunglasses stolen by an unlikely thief recently - the Czech Republic's former president VACLAV HAVEL. The TROY star was attending a film festival in the Czech town of Karlovy Vary when she met poet and playwright Havel. Writing in British magazine the New Statesman, Burrows says, "The diminutive Vaclav Havel and his tall actress wife hang out at the hotel cafe and we are introduced over a cheese baguette. "The next morning we are told that Mr Havel would like another word. The ex-president approaches, explaining that he lifted my sunglasses the previous day, apologising profusely."
