Original General Zod Terence Stamp Interrupts MAN OF STEEL Discussion In Cinema Toilet
Stamp has recounted an hilarious story about him interjecting himself in a conversation about Zack Snyder's Superman reboot in a public toilet after a screening. They didn't think much of the movie..and it seems Stamp agreed with them! Read on for more..
We love a bit of "Stampage" here on CBM. The actor is something of a Brit icon, having appeared in the likes of Young Guns, Far from the Madding Crowd, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert and of course, Superman 2 as the villainous General Zod. He is also very spiritual, funny, forthcoming, and what you might call...eccentric. We've covered quite a few of his very interesting (often bizarre) anecdotes about starring in not only Superman but Star Wars too, and his latest account to the audience at the LA Landmark Theatre on running into a group of fans discussing Man Of Steel is a good one indeed.
"I spent an hour and a half driving down here from Ojai, and the first thing I wanted to do when I got out was take a leak. I go into the men's bathroom and there's a whole load of guys – obviously, ‘Man Of Steel’ had just turned out. So I take a pee, and I start washing my hands, and there's about 10 or 12 guys there, and they're talking about ‘Man Of Steel’ One says, 'Well, I don't know. If they'd have, like, peeled the buildings off the screen I wouldn't have been surprised, you know?' Another says, 'It was all so loud.' Then the guy down at the other end, who was only a little guy, said, 'Yeah, yeah!' And he said 'It really wasn't as good as the first one, was it?'”
At this point the legendary actor felt he needed to weigh in. “I just couldn't resist,” laughed Stamp, “I said, 'You're a very discerning man.' And as soon as they heard the voice they said, [screaming] 'Oh my God! It's General Zod!'”
