UPDATE: Monday, October 9, 5:00 p.m. EST: Judi Dench's butt tattoo is fake :( Business Insider unearthed a 2014 interview with The Hollywood Reporter where Dench confirmed the tat was only temporary. However, the story about her mooning a table full of people to show it off is very, very real.
Plenty of people regret their tattoos–but actress Judi Dench has a really strong reason to regret hers. Why? Beacuse Dench has a tattoo expressing her love for Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. On her butt.
In case you haven't read the news this week, the New York Times released a scathing report of Weinstein, revealing decades of alleged sexual misconduct towards numerous women in the entertainment industry.
Weinstein confirmed Dench's ass ink on the Graham Norton Show back in 2011, Newsweek points out. In a clip from the talk show, Weinstein explained that after Dench received Oscars for several films he produced, she was looking for a special way to thank him. While the pair was out to dinner (along with other celebs including Nora Ephron and Carly Simon), she supposedly told him, "I've got a surprise. You're a guy who has everything. I don't know what to get you." Then, Weinstein said she pulled down her pants to reveal a tattoo that read "JD loves HW."
