AceShowbiz - Miriam Margolyes branded Leonardo DiCaprio "smelly" in a chaotic new interview. Having worked alongside the Hollywood heartthrob in the 1996 movie "Romeo and Juliet", the beloved 81-year-old actress admitted that the actor was quite whiffy as it was very hot on set in Mexico.
The actress known for her portrayal of Professor Sprout in the "Harry Potter" film series made the admission when speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on ITV's "This Morning". She said, "He was a bit smelly because it was very hot in Mexico and young boys don't make themselves fragrant, they don't wash all the bits."
Miriam also tried unsuccessfully to stop herself from swearing on live TV. After the actress stopped herself, co-host Phillip said, "It's such a shame because we love it when you just let rip." Miriam, in return, responded, "I know but it upsets some people. And I don't want to upset people because the whole thing is, life is s**t at the moment, it really is. It's terrible."
However, as Phillip and Holly burst out laughing, Miriam quickly saw her error in swearing anyway and exclaimed "Oh!" The BAFTA winner went on apologizing, "I've let myself down, sorry," and Holly replied, "It happens!" Phillip added, "Yeah amazingly while you were apologizing!"
Miriam explained, "I just want to make people happy," leading Phillip to tell her, "You do though," and Holly said, "You make us very happy, let me tell you." The "Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears" actress then issued another apology by saying, "Well, I apologize to everybody for that word."
