Dame Judi Dench had producer's name tattooed on her bum

Judi Dench Has A 'Tattoo' On Her Butt


Dame Judi Dench has two Golden Globes, one Oscar, one Tony and film mogul Harvey Weinstein's name tattooed on her bottom.

Wait, what?

The award-winning actress, who turns 80 on December 9, told a stunned crowd – including Robert Downey Jr., Dustin Hoffman, Emma Watson and Jamie Foxx – about her secret ink at the 2014 BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards last Thursday night.

Weinstein is the focus of the unusual tribute because, as Dame Dench revealed, he was the one who launched her career. The "Shakespeare in Love" producer gave the star's 1997 TV movie "Mrs. Brown" a theatrical release, which shot her to stardom.

At a celebratory lunch, Dench told Weinstein she had gotten his name tattooed on her behind in gratitude. He didn't believe her, of course, so she had her makeup artist draw one on to prove it to him.

Although strange and hilarious, this is just another example of the iconic Brit's sense of humor. Her secret comedic talent will make you blush. During a 2005 interview, Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen decided to share a little-known fact about their "Pride and Prejudice" co-star.

"She makes these like needlework embroideries on set in the tedium of filming," said MacFadyen, "but they are all: 'You Are a C**t.' And she gives them as presents. And it's Dame Judi Dench. And she is doing this beautifully, intricate, ornate (work). You kind of see the work materializing as the shoot goes on. Like: 'You Are a F*****g S**t.'"
