Thandie Newton on Graham Norton. I’ve always thought she was smug, though.

Tom Hiddleston. Smug narcissist

Got to be Philip Scofield and Holly Thingamibob. Insufferable smugness on legs.

HunnidBands Sat 26-May-18 03:38:16

I so want to like Thandie but she was telling this story about how she learned traditional Japanese for Westworld and how difficult it was and how even the native Japanese people on set were congratulating her on how good she was. and I just thought fuck it. She is soooo smug.

I’d amost come around to her before that.

I’m sure they they all think that you are just delightful OP.

HunnidBands Sat 26-May-18 03:46:05

Well given I’m not on tv exposing my smugness to all and sundry I doubt it.

Catherine Zeta Jones. Smug.

I think some celebs come across as "try hard" on Graham Norton, and Thandie Newton was definitely trying very hard. DH calls them "figjams" - "Fuck, I'm good -just ask me."

Last night's show was very flat. I cringed at her saying how even native Japanese people struggle with mastering it and were so impressed with her efforts. Fuck off, love.

Not quite smug but I find Stephen Fry to be very pompous.

HermioneWeasley Sat 26-May-18 07:30:26

Oh god, Mylene Klass. First woman to do anything (in her own head)

BrownTurkey Sat 26-May-18 07:40:46

Good at self-promotion.

I really didn’t like Thandie in Line if duty.
She was smug in that as well.

She was pretty shite in ER many years ago.

LapinR0se Sat 26-May-18 07:44:40

Keira Knightly has a smug face. I don’t know if she is actually smug, she just looks it.

The smuggyest couple award has to go to Sting and Trudie Styler. OMG they take themselves way too seriously. Sting records are dull dull dull

trickyboots Sat 26-May-18 07:47:29

Yeah I agree with most of these but I also think some smugness is actually down to facial features too- mostly aided by Botox. Milli Macintosh- surely she'd eat herself if she was chocolate as they say in these parts.

Often talk shows are a staged act. Interviewer knows to ask certain questions and then does the “But don’t even Japanese people find that really difficult...?” thing so the celeb can be stealth smug.

Perhaps Norton doesn’t do it with some people, forcing them to be smug in the open?!

Daniel Radcliffe. He was on GN a few years ago. He sang a song that mentioned every element on the periodic table. That was set up by GN.

dogzdinner Sat 26-May-18 08:22:16

I'm sure I've seen Thandie Newton before and thought she was ok, but she didn't come across well last night. Bryce Dallas Howard on the other hand was lovely

Mirrorbella Sat 26-May-18 08:25:48

Graham Norton = smug

I hate the way he laughs when he’s laughing at his own jokes

VickieCherry Sat 26-May-18 08:28:17

Chris Hoy. Cannot stand him.
