Mum's the word: Cider vinegar and honey have helped Sir Ranulph Fiennes's wonder cure is a natural remedy consisting of four parts apple cider vinegar and one part raw honey.
It is called Honeygar and is available from health food shops without a doctor's prescription.
Intrepid explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes is no stranger to pain.
Since the Sixties he has undertaken gruelling physical expeditions worldwide.
Then three years ago, Wes Anderson cast him as a camp and moustached Monsieur Gustave H. ‘You have to go to weird places in your head and — well you can never say never — but after an SS commandant, a serial killer in Red Dragon and Voldemort [in Harry Potter], I decided I didn’t want to be that definition of evil any more. I’ve dabbled a bit.’ He’s still wearing the Harry beard, and it suits him.
If you play those parts, I feel you have to put your head in the place of that person. My brother Magnus is a composer and gave me some insights. Those long recording sessions, people taking all kinds of substances.’ Has he ever taken ‘substances’? Today, he’s as dangerous and smouldering as Spielberg presumably thought him to be when the director described him as having a ‘sexual evil’.
The will of one eminent guest, an 84-year-old widow called Madame Céline Villeneuve Desgoffe und Taxis, becomes the contested centre of a farcical bust-up between Gustave and her money-grubbing family.
Now, what do we really know about Ralph Fiennes’ love life? But ever since Andy Cohen has come out as gay, he’s been in the limelight pretty consistently over the last week. In his new comedy, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson has found an elegant solution to gripes about how stifling, how annoyingly perfect, his films can be. Obsessive design which forbids any sense of spontaneity? Feelings put in inverted commas, or swept aside to concentrate on the colour palette? Non-devotees might be bracing themselves, but the scales could just as easily fall from their eyes when they sit down to watch this. It does all of the above, and it’s still wonderful.You could get light-headed on the pure fun of it, which unleashes fresh waves of fun-within-fun at every point where you worry it might dry up.Although you may think that vinegar would exacerbate symptoms, the cider vinegar component of Honeygar is a source of malic acid, which is found naturally in apples, pears, tomatoes, bananas and cherries.It is known to neutralise uric acid and has an alkaline effect in the bloodstream which, by balancing the p H of the blood, limits the negative effects of acids such as lactic and uric. By her mid-80s Audrey Fiennes was bedridden with arthritis in her back.
