Winner: 'Keep Your Free Cruises'
DEATHWISH director Michael Winner hates being offered free cruises in exchanged for a personal appearance - because the experience is simply too exhausting. Winner, known for his luxurious tastes, would rather lie on a beach doing nothing, but even that has its drawbacks. He says, "I do not do activity holidays. For me, activity is raising the beach flag to order a pina colada. That exhausts me. "I keep getting offered these free cruises. 'Make two speeches, Mr Winner and we'll take you to New York.' "'Make a speech every week and sign a few autographs and you can have it for free.' Free? I'd pay not to go on it."
