‘Let Them Talk’ – Hugh Laurie’s tired movie debut
Beloved ‘House’ star and newly debuted musician Hugh Laurie had to leave the premiere of his new movie early last week after he was unfortunately struck down with exhaustion.
The British actor attended the screening of ‘The Oranges’ at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City on Friday, but after sitting down with other guests to watch the film, he had to make a quick exit due to feeling overwhelmed with tiredness.
A representative for the ‘House’ star has now explained his decision to duck out of the event early, insisting Laurie’s hectic schedule had left him completely drained, both physically and mentally.
A colleague tells ‘New York Post’ gossip column page six, “He did a full press day on Friday with the rest of the cast, as well as appearances on several shows starting at 8am. After completing the press line and finishing his publicity commitments for the day, the film started late and he opted to leave as he hadn’t had a proper break to eat and to rest.”
Hugh Laurie recently completed a tour of the US to promote his jazz album ‘Let Them Talk.’ – which, in our humble opinion, is a jazz masterpiece!
