All I want for Christ­mas

Socks? Cigars? Hot dogs? What do the stars who have ev­ery­thing want for Christ­mas?

Townsville Bulletin - - Weekend Extra -

YOU might think they al­ready have ev­ery­thing they could pos­si­bly want, but Hol­ly­wood’s big­gest stars still have Christ­mas wish lists. GE­ORGE CLOONEY: ‘‘What I’d like some­one to send me this year is a case of frozen hot dogs from a Chicago restau­rant called Wiener’s Cir­cle. Theirs is the best hot dog I ever had in my life. ’’ OR­LANDO BLOOM: ‘‘A pair of socks of an un­usual colour would be per­fect. I al­ready have quite a few at home — even ones that glow in the dark.’’ BEY­ONCE KNOWLES: ‘‘I started paint­ing in oils while film­ing Austin Pow­ers in­Gold­mem­ber.It takes me away and it’s re­ally peace­ful. So, I’m hop­ing there is some­thing that has to do with art in my presents.’’ HUGH LAU­RIE: ‘‘Would you be­lieve, I’m into box­ing? I took it up to keep my­self fit while shoot­ing House.I’m not very good at it, but I love get­ting into the ring and pound­ing op­po­nents. So, I hope there’s some­thing about fisticuffs among my presents.’’ ANASTA­CIA: ‘‘I wear lots of but­ter­fly jew­ellery and of­ten men­tion them in my lyrics. To get an­other piece to add to my col­lec­tion would be won­der­ful.’’ DAVID TEN­NANT: ‘‘Any­thing to do with Doc­tor Who — old books or pho­tos. I col­lec­tDoc­torWhoDVDs. When I was at school, I wrote an es­say on how my great­est de­sire was to play Doc­tor Who on TV. Funny how it’s all worked out.’’ PIERCE BROS­NAN: ‘‘I spent last Christ­mas with the fam­ily at our Hawai­ian get­away, paint­ing. And I gave my­self a present of paint­ing ma­te­rial. So, my Christ­mas list in­cludes any­thing to do with my hobby.’’ play­ing in 1997, while I was in The NakedTruth, I’ve been hooked on golf. Since then, I’ve been elected the top wo­man golfer among the Hol­ly­wood set. I’m hop­ing for some­thing ex­cit­ing to do with the great game.’’ CLIVE OWEN: ‘‘Some­thing horsey would be a per­fect Christ­mas present. I dis­cov­ered my pas­sion for rid­ing horses when I had to learn to ride as King Arthur a cou­ple of years ago. Even my wife and two young daugh­ters have been bit­ten by the bug. We go rid­ing as a fam­ily at week­ends.’’ DON­ALD SUTHER­LAND: ‘‘I love fine wines, so a bot­tle of a vin­tage I haven’t tasted be­fore would be fan­tas­tic.’’ WHOOPI GOLD­BERG: ‘‘I’ve been smok­ing cigars since I was a teenager. I’ve got my own hu­mi­dor at home. I make sure all my friends know about the ones I like, es­pe­cially when Christ­mas is around the cor­ner.’’ MADONNA: ‘‘There’s bound to be a jig­saw puzzle in my stock­ing be­cause most of my friends know that I’m a puzzle ad­dict.’’ DAVID HYDE PIERCE: ‘‘Any books about mu­sic and mu­si­cians — es­pe­cially pi­anists. I stud­ied classical pi­ano at Yale Univer­sity and I once toyed with the idea of be­com­ing a con­cert pi­anist be­fore act­ing took over.’’ BRADPITT: ‘‘I’ve been in­ter­ested in gar­den­ing for some years now. I en­joy read­ing up about the dif­fer­ent styles of gar­dens and about plants. And my col­lec­tion of gar­den­ing books still isn’t big enough, so I would like more, please.’’ MELISSA JOAN HART: ‘‘I col­lect Shirley Tem­ple and Au­drey Hep­burn mem­o­ra­bilia and I’m hop­ing I’ll get some­thing new for my col­lec­tion.’’
