Jennifer Saunders Says “Absolutely Fabulous” Is Dead
Have Patsy and Edna finally enjoyed their last bottle of Bolly?
Talking to Event, the show’s creator and co-star says it’s unlikely the two iconic characters will ever be dusted off again for a new series of adventures.
“I can’t see the point of doing anything else with [Ab Fab],” she says. “It just takes so long. There’s lots of other stuff I’d like to do. Plus, I’d like to spend time with my grandchildren.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Saunders criticizes selfies and suggests the cultural phenomenon is ultimately terribly for little girls.
“That Kim Kardashian look, it’s so automaton,” she says. “Girls spend longer and longer in the bloody bathroom, looking in the mirror, taking selfies. Girls are now getting ill because all they spend their lives doing is finding the perfect selfie.”
It also sounds like selfies have somewhat strained her relationship with fans.
“If you say no [to taking a selfie], they look at you like you just shot their child,” she says. “Eventually you pull a face into the camera. They put it on their page and before you know it, you Google my name and that’s the first picture to pop up. Looking shit.”
