This afternoon Boris Johnson fulfilled his lifelong ambition of becoming Prime Minister, following in the footsteps of his hero Sir Winston Churchill. In fact, the new PM recently penned a book on his World World II predecessor called The Churchill Factor. But while Boris may see himself as something of a 21st century Churchill dealing with this generation’s crisis, an actor who recently played the great man claims he wouldn’t have had much time for someone like the new prime minister. A couple of years ago Brian Cox starred in Churchill and claimed that Boris lacked the gumption to be like the legendary world leader.
The actor said: “He was the first person who really talked about the United States of Europe.
“So he would not be at all happy with [Brexit] and he would have a lot to say about it.”
He even referenced Boris in that interview too: “Particularly to a certain blonde, who rather fancies himself – and he ain’t anywhere near it.”
Asked what made him laugh, he said: “The Pink Panther, I have to admit, I think is incredibly funny.”
“It’s fantastically funny, I almost retch with laughter when watching the Pink Panther. Dodgeball – brilliant movie.”
Meanwhile, the new Prime Minister’s favourite movie scene will raise some eyebrows.
Speaking with the Daily Mail, the 55-year-old revealingly said: “The multiple retribution killings at the end of The Godfather.”
