Patsy Kensit: How Showbiz Are You?

We put Patsy Kensit through her paces to find out how showbiz she really is...

1. Who is the most famous name in your mobile?

I don't have any famous friends - I think the only person I have is Elizabeth Hurley. We did a movie together years ago when I was 18 and we remained really good friends. I can't say that we see each other regularly but she's godmother to my youngest son.


2. Most bizarre thing you've ever read about yourself?

I don't read the papers or anything anymore. I don't want to read about myself, even if I have copy approval, I just don't want to know. I learnt my lesson years ago and I don't care how thick skinned you are, it is very difficult to read stuff about yourself when sometimes it's not true or a distortion of yourself. You can't start your day like that. Funnily enough, it was Elton John who said that to me.


3. How much is too much for a haircut?

£100? They'd have to be cutting everything off for more than that.


4. What is the weirdest place you've ever been recognised?

I think when you're driving in your car and someone pulls up alongside you and does a double take. I don't get it very often, I've got to say. I get the tube a lot now and sometimes I get people looking at me and you see them go on their phone.


5. What's the weirdest thing you've been sent by fan?

It's always been nice things. When you do a theatre job, there tends to be a whole influx of mail you wouldn't get normally and that can be interesting.


6. What's the best party you've ever been to?

I've been to a few! Possibly not many that I would care to share about! And I've got to say we are talking about a long time ago. Now, I'm in bed at 9pm and I'm so boring.


7. Ever used your fame to get what you want?

You know what, yes, sometimes, and I'm talking about years ago. I couldn't get a seat on a bus now. Maybe if you called up a restaurant and there was no tables and you gave your name and suddenly a table would become available. I couldn't get a table in McDonalds these days.


8. How much cash would it take to get you to pose in the buff?

At my age? No way! I've got two sons! When I was younger and doing movies I did love scenes and nudity and I'm sure there are pictures, but I'm a 45-year-old woman now.


9. Best freebie you ever received?

Years ago, I was sent clothes just because designers wanted me to wear them, and that was a lovely luxury because I love fashion.


10. Ever been chatted up by another celeb?

Errrrm, no not really. I wish I could say differently.


Result: 26/50

Well Patsy, you do surprise us! We were expecting a much higher score from the former 'Emmerdale' and 'Strictly' star with her tales from Hollywood. She may have Liz Hurley on speed dial, but you're more likely to find Pats tucked up in bed than you are at a glitzy celeb bash.
