Dench Likes Bad Boys

Many of you will not like this next story, so just hold your nose till I get it out.  Judi Dench has once again stood up for people currently seen as pariahs in today’s society.  “Are we going to negate 10 years at the Old Vic [when Kevin Spacey was artistic director] and everything that he did – how wonderful he’s been in all those films?  Are we just not going to see all those films that Harvey [Weinstein] produced?  You cannot deny somebody a talent.  You might as well never look at a Caravaggio painting.  You might as well never have gone to see Noel Coward.”  This brings up the age-old controversy – can one separate the art from the artist?  If nothing else, one must admire Dench’s loyalty…through thick and thin.
