Courteous celebrities

In which G.M. Norton looks for chivalry in the modern day.


Greetings chumrades!

Well, it's been quite a week with Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States. 

I see this periodical as a distraction from modern life and thorny issues such as politics and I'm not going to start now. However, what I will always make clear is that sexist and misogynist behaviour is utterly despicable. 

To remind readers of the behaviour that I believe in, here are some examples from celebrities of today. This first one might surprise you, it certainly surprised me.


Kanye West

First up, and perhaps most shockingly of all, but please step forward the chivalrous Kanye West. 

Yes, that's right. I am writing in praise of a man that is usually the subject of much ridicule. Despite making some dodgy decisions, he clearly loves his wife, Kim Kardashian, and makes an effort to treat her like a lady. Bravo, Sir.


Alec Baldwin

Next we have actor, Alec Baldwin. In 2012, he was attending the Cannes film festival with his then fiancee, the forever-smiling Hilaria Thomas. To prevent her from tripping over her dress, Alec scooped her up in his arms and carried her up the steps. Sheer class.

Prince Harry

Upset at growing media intrusion, this week, His Royal Highness Prince Harry had Kensington Palace release a statement to defend the honour of his girlfriend, Meghan Markle. His gallant statement which was aimed squarely at the press, proved that at times, words can be more powerful than a sword. 

Keanu Reeves

Finally, we have footage of the seemingly ageless Keanu Reeves giving up his seat on public transport. It's a few years old but deserves to be watched again if you're already familiar with it. Most excellent.

  1. Good manners and courtesy will never go out of style. Though the next four years will probably make it appear so...
