The movie that coined the phrase “You’re terrible, Muriel” also brought together two of our favourite women for the first time.
“We have actually met once before.”
After Toni sees a 21-year-old Leigh, she cries, “Look at you! How cute are we!”
“I apologise for inflicting that haircut of mine on you,” Leigh responds.
She then laments, “Listen to my voice, how dreadful.” (“It’s very serious journalism,” Toni mocks.)
Leigh, then a cub reporter for Channel Nine, said she loved the film and apologised for asking the “dumbest questions in the world” – apparently Toni was very mature and graceful at the time.
But the best revelation? Toni still knows the choreography to the Waterloo dance 21 years later.
Let’s hope she pulls it out while doing the media rounds for her new film, also starring Drew Barrymore, Miss You Already.
