Jeremy Irons


In honor of the actor's birthday, let's play the Jeremy Irons Game. The only rule is that each post must contain a complete sentence, composed of the name of a famous person... or persons, as long as it's a complete sentence.

Examples:

Jeremy Irons.

Britney Spears.

Oscar was Wilde, but Thornton was Wilder.
