Peter O'Toole smuggled vodka into Oscars!

Peter O'Toole threatened to walk out of the 2003 Academy Awards because no alcoholic drinks were available.

According to IMDB, the 74-year-old screen icon only stayed at the event after some vodka was covertly brought in, even though he was due to pick up an Honorary Oscar.

Speaking about the event, O'Toole revealed his reaction when told that only fruit juices and water were on offer in the bar: "I said, 'All right, I'm f**king off. I'll be back.' A man with earphones said, 'No! No!' Eventually this vodka was smuggled in."

I remember seeing it the first time at a theatre with a bunch of girls. We all were crying and sniffling at the end.

me too, me too. Has he done any audio books? I'd pay retail, just to hear that voice. Who cares what he's reading!

Speaking of audio books....have you narrated any? I could have sworn I was listening to you tell me about beeswax recently.

LM!
