Nigel Havers Quit Reality Show Over Fellow Contestant


Nigel Havers

The veteran star signed up for jungle-based survival show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2010 but he quit after 12 days of living in a camp in an Australian rainforest.

His decision to leave came hours after he refused to take part in a challenge in which contestants received electric shocks, but he has now revealed he walked off the show because he loathed a fellow competitor, former British Member of Parliament (MP) Lembit Opik.

Nigel tells U.K. TV show Good Morning Britain, "I had a bit of free time and I thought it would be fun... (but) I didn't enjoy it for one single bit. I was so bored... Talking to the others - after a while, what do you talk about?

Daniel Radcliffe was one of 300 mourners to mourn Richard Griffiths at his funeral yesterday (09.04.13).

Havers' Onscreen Fling With Field Angered Wife


Nigel Havers Sally Field

Veteran British actor Nigel Havers has started hiding scripts from his wife - because she was unhappy about his racy scenes with Sally Field on hit U.S. show BROTHERS & SISTERS.

The 60 year old jetted off to America last year (09) to take on a role as Field's love interest in the third season of the programme.

But his wife Georgina, who he wed in 2007, wasn't pleased when she realised the extent of his part.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Last year I was in America doing Brothers & Sisters and I had a lot of bed scenes with Sally Field.

Havers Wins Court Battle Over Late Wife's Estate


Nigel Havers

British TV star Nigel Havers has won a legal battle over his late wife's $4.4 million (GBP2.3 million) estate, after claiming he was unfairly cheated out of a chunk of it.
The 57-year-old A PASSAGE TO INDIA star's wife POLLY died in 2004 from ovarian cancer, leaving most of her estate to her two sons from a previous relationship, BEN and WILLIAM BLOOMFIELD.
Havers inherited a share of the couple's marital home but began a legal battle claiming the will, drawn up after they married in 1989, left him without "reasonable financial provision".
A compromise that was reached last year - before the case went to Britain's High Court - and published now for the first time, awards Havers $712,000 (GBP375,000) and the two sons $445,000 (GBP235,000).
The actor is also entitled to the proceeds from the sale of a number of items including his late wife's car and jewellery.

Farewell To The King Review


Good
I thought I was being all clever when I thought I'd compare Farewell to the King to Apocalpyse Now and The Mosquito Coast. Little did I know that director John Milius wrote the script for Apocalypse. Oh well.

King is a story about an American soldier (Nick Nolte, looking a lot like he does now in real life), who deserts his WWII P.O.W. march on an island in Borneo and escapes into the jungle. Years later (the war is still raging), he's discovered by British soldiers: He's now a "king" of the local people -- headhunters -- and he no longer wears a shirt. The Brits convince him to join the fight agains the Japanese again, and he reluctantly agrees, training the soldiers for a giant battle ahead.

The Whistle Blower Review


Weak
If you're going to build a Cold War thriller an implicate a massive government conspiracy along the way, try not to set your movie entirely in police stations and hotel rooms. This tepid Michael Caine drama doesn't get much past the excitement level of your usual county fair (Caine doesn't believe his son committed suicide! It's a cover-up!). Still, some fine performances from Caine, James Fox, John Gielgud, and others make this less painful than a poke to the eye.

Empire Of The Sun Review


Excellent
1941 notwithstanding (and we're all still trying to forget it), Empire of the Sun was Steven Spielberg's first big trip to World War II. For Spielberg, it was an unlikely way to go about it -- examining the British viewpoint of the Japanese incursion into China.

Christian Bale stars as Jim, a British kid born in Shanghai, the son of upper crust expatriates who feel the rising tide of Japanese-Chinese aggression will never reach there strata. Of course it does, and as the Japanese overtake Shanghai, Jim's family is torn asunder, scattering in the chaos. But eventually, like Ben-Hur, Jim returns home to discover his house in ruins and his loved ones gone, so he does the only thing he can think of -- surrender to the Japanese. Only the Japanese don't even want the worthless kid, until finally, after hooking up with a seedy scam artist named Basie (John Malkovich) and his flunkie (Joe Pantoliano), does he manage to get himself arrested and thrown into an internment camp where at least there is the promise of a daily potato and some gruel.
