WATCH: Judi Dench Dubbed ‘Fag Hag’ By Elton John

As if there aren’t enough reasons to adore Judi Dench, add freewheeling gay clubber to her long list of selling points. In the above clip, Graham Norton grills Judi on a particularly wild night on the town at London mega-club Heaven — an evening she clearly has trouble remembering (how many vodkas does it take to quench the Dench?).

The experience is a bonafide gay grand slam. At bat is Dame Judi, with Graham Norton, Heaven and Elton John loading up the bases. Here comes the pitch — it looks like she might miss but then oh! — there’s Cher to lend some sequenced magic and send the ball out of the park. And hey Elton, Judi is much more fruit fly than fag hag.

It goes without saying, but Judi, you’re simply adorable and we love you. Lucky for us your new film, Philomena, opens today and it looks fantastic! See you at the pictures.

    Another day, another “Philomena” post. Strange.

    @yaoming: As I pointed out in another Philomena thread, the PR company has sunk a large amount of cash into Queerty and its overlord company.

    They are the same PR company that pays for Nick Gruber posts.

    Elton John is a frumpy-faced pig with not much going for him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he suffers regular bouts of diarrhea from both ends of his body. His hair started falling out years ago and he’s maintaining it with something resembling “hair of horse testicle”.

    My goodness what a bunch a wicked queens we’ve become. Can’t anyone say anything nice anymore. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Judi Dench and this hatefulness is unbecoming to the gay community. Please don’t do this. It isn’t nice.

    I just love Ms.John… She is the most talented hunk of Dovedale cheese ever produced across the pond… a full-fat semi-soft blue-veined cheese.

    @Harley: I’m so ashamed… Your right of course.

  • CoolBeansandChili

    @Harley: I second that emotion.

    @2eo @yaoming: While I can’t (and won’t) defend Queerty for shoving Nick Gruber in our faces, maybe the reason for so many Philomena posts (besides the money) is that it could possibly be a pretty good film. Good Films deserve to be promoted.

  • AuntieChrist

    @CoolBeansandChili: Also her son is gay in the movie, so there is that…

    Now, now, calm down. Try watching the documentary Tantrums and Tiaras. You get to see a whole new side of Sir Elton.
    You still may not like him but give the guy a chance….if for no other reason than longevity.

    Do we really still use that term anymore. Christ people lets get PC in 2013.

  • RayJacksonMS

    She should have publicly dubbed him the Uncle Tom that he is.
