Coogan's Media Games
British funnyman Steve Coogan would rather the press made up stories about him than have an insight into what he really gets up to. Coogan insists it is far more important to "fly below the radar" than allow journalists a peek into his private life, after he was inundated with rumours about a relationship with Courtney Love last year (05). He says, "I leave that stuff to the British tabloids. I need to fly below the radar to operate, do you know what I mean? "If I blow my cover I will be redundant in the field. And if they are too stupid to understand what that means, f**k them."
