The celebrity world is full of unexpected friendships.
Think Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg, for example.
Or — the late spy novelist John le Carré and actress Florence Pugh.
Literary Hub shared a few favored tidbits from Pugh's interview with Vogue.
The pair evidently had lunch one time while Pugh was working on an adaptation of a Le Carré novel; ultimately the pair struck up a friendship, but during that meal, she did call him an "old fart."
He repaid the favor, says Lit Hub, by naming a "talented but occasionally insubordinate young spy" in a later novel after Pugh.
