"Lauren Bacall came backstage after a show I did with Emily Watson on Broadway and rasped: 'You were fabulous. I’ve been a fan of yours for years, I love all your work. I adored you in Breaking the Waves.’ “I thought Oh God, she’s got the wrong f—-ing person, oh s—t, oh s—t, so I quietly pointed out she actually meant Emily.” Bacall was mortified, whereupon quick-witted McCrory smoothly broke the tension by declaring: “It’s such a pleasure to meet you, because ever since Philadelphia Story, Miss Hepburn, I’ve always been a great fan of yours." The Hollywood legend burst into laughter, and duly swept her off to supper. It’s a marvellous story, but far from a one-off.
