Ôev­ery­one Wanted To Be In The Film’

We haven’t seen them for a few years, but Ed­die and Patsy are back to ‘see off’ Kate Moss, rule the fash­ion scene again and of course, have a few drinks while do­ing it…

Look (UK) - - NEWS STORY -

hen it comes to BFFS, there’s one eter­nal truth: one of you is Patsy and one of you is Ed­die. So we sat down with the eter­nally chic Ab Fab ladies Jen­nifer Saun­ders and Joanna Lum­ley to find out who bat­tled it out for a cameo in the new film and what it re­ally took to get Kate Moss dunked in the Thames. Pass the Bolly (hic)!

Any­one who’s worked in the me­dia in­dus­try would say some of the sto­ry­lines are rather close to the bone. Were you in­spired by real-life events?

[Laughs] I don’t know. I in­vented it all – pure in­ven­tion! It wasn’t based on real life at all, ac­tu­ally – it was just all what I imag­ine hap­pens and it turns out it does hap­pen. We’ve been to enough par­ties! The film’s packed with fa­mous faces, but did any­one turn you down?

We ac­tu­ally had to beat them off with a stick.

We just said we needed peo­ple to turn up to a party… and peo­ple turned up to go to a party. Was there any­one beg­ging for a cameo?

No, I think there was this idea that Kim Kar­dashian was [go­ing to be in it] which she never was. Harry Styles wasn’t [ei­ther]. So I think peo­ple sort of in­vented who they thought should be in it. Who was the best cameo for you?

Oh gosh. We choose a dif­fer­ent per­son ev­ery time

We do, be­cause that’s po­lite. I mean, I have to say cameo is a great word be­cause how can Jon Hamm be a cameo? It’s not too bad to have to rough him up a bit [laughs]. It was pretty nice. Jen­nifer just thought: ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to have Jon Hamm?’ He’s a gi­ant. But fun­nily enough, the giants are the first to say yeah. How did you con­vince Kate Moss to get in the Thames? Be­cause she’s a model. Mod­els have to do tough stuff. They en­dure heat and cold.

She was treated a lot bet­ter – as she said – walk­ing in the Thames on a film shoot than she would have been if it was
