Funny Girl is shushed
ACTRESS Sheridan Smith was told to pipe down at the cinema – while watching herself on the big screen.
The star had gone along to a special one-off nationwide showing of her hit stage musical Funny Girl.
But a fan did not recognise her and complained she was noisy.
Sheridan, 37, tweeted: “I snuck into a local cinema so I could watch it with u all and someone told me to shush and sit still. Totally rained on my parade!”
Then fan Katie Brucegreen replied: “I am so sorry. That was me. Just didn’t recognise you. The baseball cap is a deceptive disguise in the dark. I was too embarrassed to look at your properly even when you said, ‘I’m Sheridan.’”
The actress thanked fans for supporting showings at Vue Cinemas across the UK, saying: “You have no idea how much it means.”
