How Zeffirelli Is Like The Pope

FrancozeffirelliFranco Zeffirelli won’t stop insulting people until he’s dead. (Latest evidence here.) Reading the new interview, I realized that Franco is basically like the Pope: an ultra-conservative who is surrounded by handsome men. So when Franco criticizes the current Pontiff, I had to laugh at the lack of self-awareness. Zeff says: “He’s not exactly the image of a pope for me. He looks very much like an old lady.” That’s the pot calling the kettle nero.
