Vehement denials of the week

John Lithgow, Megan Mullally and other TV stars share what they vehemently deny

Posted on

· John Lithgow (3rd Rock From the Sun) ”I absolutely, categorically deny that I’m the illegitimate younger brother of John Cleese.”

· Estelle Getty (The Golden Girls) ”I am not carrying Ricky Martin‘s baby.”

· Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) ”My best friend was at the grocery store standing behind these two guys in line, and one of the guys told the other that I was a man. He said, ‘If you look closely, you can tell that she is,’ and the other guy was like, ‘Oh, my God! Now that you mention it, she is a man!’ So I’m denying that I’m a man.”

· John Mahoney (Frasier) ”I’m vehemently denying that I’m going to have James Gandolfini [The Sopranos] break David Hyde Pierce‘s knees so that he won’t be able to work next season and I’ll have a chance to get an Emmy.”
