Drico is supposed to be rude. Friends were in Kielys a while back after a match and asked him nicely if he would step into the photo and his response was less than cordial. it would appear he does not always have time for his fans.
hes nervous of a Saturday night and the best way to overcome that is to belittle his guests.
how was he a pricke? If you approached him a sneer then you got what you deserved.
I was gonna say Twink, but that assumes that she actually is a celeb either way she was pig ignorant any time I did meet her (also not the bightest).
Also met Shane Horgan, very ignorant guy (especially compared to any other members if the Irish team I've met).
Brian O'Driscoll actuall said "do you know who I am". Yeah and couldnt give a bollocks.
I've actually witnessed him do this in person. Tool of the highest order!
was he tryna get in sumwere or get freebies????
Haha, oh Brian. I read an article where Amy was saying that they were trying to keep their invitation to the wedding low key, because they didn't want it to seem like they were showing off that they were invited. Yeah right! It's been all over the newspapers for weeks.
But - back to topic - rude celebs. Haven't really encountered any.
The correct response to that is
Does anyone know who this gentleman is? He seems to have forgotton his name
I think this whole thread goes to show that everyone is human and has good and bad days. Just because someone is famous doesnt make them public property.
for many these people are role models and when in public they have certain responsibilities.
True, they want their peace and quiet, but they also enjoy basking in the limelight when it suits and the media attention they have courted has been largely beneficial for them.
Here he is in his younger days
Most famous for Sleeping with the Enemy with Julia Roberts or that Harrison Ford film, Patriot Games
one of the more succusful actors from Ireland
And boy does he know it!
Lived in Tipperary and regularly stayed in the local hotel where I was porter.
Constant bitching to management over everything, rude to staff and fond of the "do you know who I am".
We knew exactly who he was but denied it, "sorry sir, I don't know who you are but I hope you are happy as the resident of x room. Anything I can do for you?"
Used to be in a Celtic Supporter Club and we made regular trips.
Often saw Packie in the airport as I believe he is a coach. Not sure if he still does the coaching.
He'd ignore kids who wanted autographs and was not exactly friendly to anyone who came up to say hello
In contrast, Mick McCarthy, total legend. Saw him a few times and he'd see our colours and chat away with us as a former Celtic player. He's answer anything and this was back when he Ireland manager. Took photos with us. Lovely genuine guy and I've been rooting for him and his current club since
