What did Kate Moss do to piss off Joanna Lumley on the Ab Fab set?
Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders push Kate Moss into the Thames in the upcoming Ab Fab movie — purely for entertainment value, of course. But there are rumours of bad feeling off set as well…
Lumley is a passionate advocate for animal rights and a prolific anti-fur campaigner. Moss is a supermodel who wears whatever the hell she likes. The result? According to the Daily Mail, Lumley was none too happy when Moss slipped on a leopard-print rabbit-skin coat between takes, breaching Lumley's "strict no-fur policy" on set.
When Lumley, 70, was asked if she called out 42-year-old Moss on her choice of outerwear she said, "I wasn’t on set when Kate wore fur, and she brought her own clothes because Kate doesn't take dressing orders."
The first full-length trailer for Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie shows that Moss is only one of many A-listers who jumped at the chance to join Edina Moon and Patsy Stone in their latest adventure. No less than 60 famous names are featured including Stella McCartney, Mad Men’s Jon Hamm, Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie, Rebel Wilson, Graham Norton, Jerry Hall, Dame Joan Collins and Perez Hilton.
Julia Sawalha as Eddy's daughter Saffy is back, now in her 40s and with a teenage daughter of her own, as is Jane Horrocks as the inimitable Bubble.
Thankfully Eddy and Patsy haven't turned into clean-eating, meditating yoga bunnies. Little has changed since we last saw them four years ago. They're still chain-smoking, champagne-swilling, party-crashing fashionistas, causing chaos wherever they go. "Killing Kate Moss" is only the beginning.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is released in U.K. cinemas on July 1, 2016
