Miriam Margolyes complains about Steve Martin in her new memoirs

Actress Miriam Margolyes complained about her former co-star Steve Martin, calling him “horrible.”

The star of stage and screen, who has become increasingly known for her unfiltered opinions on the celebrities she has met, criticized the Hollywood comedian and star of Only Murders in the Building.

In the book, published on Thursday (September 14), Margolyes reflects on the “uncomfortable” experience of working with Martin, 78, on Frank Oz’s cult hit Little Shop of Horrorswhich premiered in 1986.

Margolyes, 83, played the secretary of “psychopathic dentist” Orin Scrivello, played by Martin, and in her musical number “Dentist!”Margolyes takes a hit from Martin’s character, who also slams a door in her face.

In her memoirs, Margolyes suggested that she was actually hurt while filming the scenes, writing: “I was hit all day with doors opening in my face; Steve Martin, nasty and remorseless, punched, slapped, and knocked me down repeatedly (perhaps he practiced method acting); and he would return home in a bad mood and with a terrible headache.”

Margolyes added: “Let it not be said that I have never suffered in the name of art” and concluded that the actor “was undeniably brilliant, but horrible to me.”

He praised his former co-star Steve Buscemi, saying the actor “was unfailingly sweet” and “took points away from Steve Martin.”

The Independent contacted Martin for comment. The actor, whose film credits include The Man with Two Brains and Parenthoodcurrently stars in the Hulu series Only Murders in the Buildingof which he is co-creator.

Martin stars in the series alongside Martin Short and Selena Gomez.

Elsewhere in Margolyes’ memoir, the actress recalled exposing her breasts to an “exhausted” Martin Scorsese while working with him on the 1993 film The Age of Innocence.

Margolyes, in a recent interview, called John Cleese “malicious” and called him “an insignificant tadpole.”

In recent years, Cleese, who will debut a new program on GB News this month, has become an increasingly divisive figure. In 2019, he appeared to denounce multiculturalism, saying: “London is no longer an English city.”

Following criticism, the 83-year-old responded: “I suspect I should apologize for my affection for the Englishness of my upbringing, but in some ways, I found it calmer, more polite, funnier, less tabloid-oriented and less oriented.” to the money than the one who is replacing him.”
