A friend was on a night out with ND and found him incredibly rude. Hates not being the centre of attention and would make snide remarks at any other guys in the group who made jokes. Second hand story so perhaps take with a pinch of salt.
Fionn Regan. Was doing a private show and was very difficult to deal with. Refused to cooperate and was sullen and obnoxious the entire time. The venue could only cater for acoustic gigs due to it being a day time show but he showed up with a full electric set up and drums despite knowing this. His way or the highway. Wanna talk to someone about it? My manager is over there.
Gemma Hayes and Josh Ritter could not have been nicer. Both very happy to chat and sign albums for people. Very appreciative of any help they were offered and were all round friendly people. Particularly impressed with Ritter as he had just gone through a nightmare journey to get to Dublin during the ash cloud fiasco. It was a private show that was early in the day ahead of his main show in Grand Canal Theatre and he could easily have cancelled as he had very little sleep in the past 24 hours. Was more than happy to proceed and was completely chilled out and happy to have some banter with those who spoke to him. Extremely polite man.
met paul daniels in a restaurant once such a numpty
went up and asked for his autograph and he got all shirty and told me to go away and stop bothering him
i said that i used to watch him on tv but he didnt give a toss
thought a has been like him would like a bit of attention but hes just a grumpy fcuker
never have much sympathy for autograph hunters above age of 12
People who find talentless, chubby, balding, love-rats attractive/interesting?
Where was this? Wasn't in Barrow St by any chance was it
Went to school with Colin Farrell. So up his own hole it's unreal!
Met Peter o'toole once and asked him for his autograph an in a loud voice he told me fcuk myself. I hate him ever since ,while he is not a superstar I met daithi o'shea and he could not have being nicer
And the Oscar for the most obnoxious celeb goes too... not Peter O' Toole
You should mention the fact he holds the records for the most oscar nominations without a win, that might have made him even nicer! But yea, he wasn't particularly pleasant when i met him.
Adam Levine from Maroon 5
This isn't 'rudest celeb' in the typical sense but my sister was in Mary I uni with daithi o se she said he had the filthiest dirtiest mind and talked bout nothing but sex. She also said he absolutely reeked, though I assume now he's 'famous' he can afford soap!
Lemmy out of Motorhead prime banker
Might have been!
