Matt Smith: “I Was Called ‘Dumbo’ as a Child”

Kids can be so cruel but rather than wrapping himself up in a blanket and having a nice bowl of fish custard to smoother the pain away Matt Smith has bravely shared his childhood nickname with the audience of The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

It seems the Oncoming Storm was once known as the less majestic ‘Dumbo’ due to the size of his ears, surprisingly.

After being asked by the erstwhile host if he had a big head Matt admitted that despite his relatively normal head he had another problem in the head covering department.

His sticky out ears make hat wearing a problem.

However he has a solution to the ear/hat dilemma. Apparently it’s all in the balance:

“If it goes too far…see, see my big ears.”

Despite such troubling issues Matt Smith managed to brave the rest of the interview where he shared what it was like to stay in the famous Playboy suite at the Palms Hotel in Vegas, baby!

“There weren’t any Playboy Bunnies there, sadly not. It was just an apartment. It’s nice though.”

Pah, it’s never anything like the brochure…Still I don’t think he’ll be bothering Watchdog with his Bunny complaint.




Andrew has left Kasterborous. Any article that appears on the site past February 2016 claiming to be written by Andrew Reynolds has been done so maliciously and without the authors consent. The author does not condone gambling in any form and would not seek to publicise the industry through a children's television show.
