Thick Of It Star Peter Capaldi Teaches Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie How To Swear Like Malcolm Tucker

HOLLYWOOD’S most famous couple have been taking swearing lessons from The Thick Of It star Peter Capaldi.

The Scots actor said he was surprised to learn that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie knew his spin doctor character Malcolm Tucker – and was happy to give them tips on how to skilfully deliver verbal abuse.

Peter, who won Best TV Comedy Actor at last week’s British Comedy Awards for his role in the BBC’s political satire, has done films with both of the stars.
