Croydon has some fabulous venues for Wedding receptions. One venue that is steeped in history and I love caricaturing there is Addington Palace. It’s a Georgian Mansion, with 10 grand rooms. I’m always struck by how high the ceilings are. I’ve also caricatured in the Pavilion a couple of times on the grounds of the Palace. It’s perfect for large Asian Weddings which are always notoriously big.  As well as King and Queen’s dining there, the Queen and Prince Philip banqueted there in her Golden Jubilee Celebration.  It’s also been used to shot TV and films. Some scenes in Strictly Come Dancing were shot there as well as an advert with Kate Moss in, probably a perfume. The bill and the band Girls Aloud shot a music video there. In 2015 Ben Kingsley and Brad Pitt shot some scenes from the movie ‘War Machine’ at Addington Palace. Ben Kingsley played the President Afghanistan Hamid Karzai and Brad Pitt as an Army General.  Brad Pitt of course is a Hollywood heartthrob and records show he’s always somewhere in the top line up of the top sexiest male film stars. When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were an item, they together became one of the most reported couple celebrity stories worldwide.

Some memorable movies that I’ve enjoyed watching Brad Pitt in include ‘Sleepers’. It’s an actual real life story about the horrifying abuse of 4 boys, but how their friendship endures and they bring the abusers to justice. There’s the cult classic ‘Fight Club’ Brad plays Tyler Durden as his alter ego, and Pitt’s performance is widely praised.  Brad’s physique is still widely talked about 20 years on amongst body builders. He managed to get himself down to five-six percent body fat for this role which must have be a very strict diet and weight work.  Not something I know much about!  Then there’s all the Ocean’s twelve series and MR and MRS Smith played with Angelina Jolie. However the film I like him best is Guy Ritchie’s 2000 gangster film ‘snatch’.  Pitt plays an Irish Gypsy Boxer called Mickey and it is unlike any other Characters I’ve seen him play before.  Mickey talks in completely incomprehensible Irish accent which I think Brad Pitt pulls off really well.
