Actually

Woke up to the sports headlines Maradona is critical and a column on his drug problems. Perhaps a little poor taste, but got reminded of this fantastic scene from Love Actually. TV producers try to silence an exuberant Bill Nighy, who was absolutely smashing as the aging rock star, commenting about drugs. He then assumes this serious expression and implores the kids not to buy drugs. When the happy producers nod their heads at this unexpected caring display, he smiles and says "become a rock star, they give it to you for free". His performance was impeccable and had me laughing so much.
