Hold On To Your Cane, The Dowager Countess Has Never Watched Downton Abbey [VIDEO]


60 Minutes reporter Steve Kroft learned the hard way not to question Dame Maggie Smith. Which is problematic considering they were conducting an interview. Watch as she reveals she’s never actually watched the popular British drama she stars in and Kroft’s attempt to almost scold her on it. BIG mistake.

    I expect that’s fairly common among actors. It’s a job, so why would you want to watch your job when you go home?

    Well, that, and she probably reads the entire script and not just her lines.

    I was hoping she would say something like “The satisfaction of a job well done, you insufferable ninny.” or something else rather Duchess Dowager…

    Has this man never interviewed other actors before? This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of actors who don’t like watching their own work, and for the same exact reasons, too.

    I seem to recall this topic being brought up about the HP movies, when she said the same thing. So she’s probably tired of talking about it too.

    I think Billie Piper has said she hates watching her own stuff.

    I bet he’s never seen it either, and therefore doesn’t know the smackdown she can give him.
