❝ Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.”

Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.
He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.
❝ I’m the biggest prankster. I convinced Benedict Cumberbatch that he had to wear special cream when we worked in this facility on the movie otherwise he’d get radiation poisoning. He, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana put it on. Me and Chris Pine played this joke on virtually the whole cast. It was called Neutron Cream and the whole crew was in on it. We had little pots of it made. Benedict did an entire morning shoot with dots (of cream) all over his face, which was a joy.
