Kate Moss & Kills To Buy Withnail Farm?

I hope Burberry sales plummet

In the late 1990s, television's nincompoop Chris Evans degraded the memory of Withnail & I by prancing like a tit in the original coat that the thirsty resting actor wore in the film. (Read The Quietus' article about reclaiming Withnail & I from its idiot fans here.)

Now, Kate Moss and boyfriend Jamie Hince are rumoured to be planning a purchase of the run-down farm that was used as the location for Uncle Monty's Crow Crag in the film. According to reports in the press, Moss and Hince want to do up Sleddale Hall, and install a fucking art studio in there, so that Moss can practice her new hobby of "landscape painting". Is that a euphemism, like offering up a glimpse of one's etchings?

The 'source' told the press that "Jamie's pet name for Kate is Withnail - and he often mockingly refers to himself as 'And I' in reference to his lack of fame compared to hers. Kate wants somewhere to paint and Jamie is tiring of city life a little, so they reckon this place would be an ideal retreat."
