Omar Sharif: Resistance Hero?

In 2003, the 71-year-old Omar Sharif spent a night in jail after assaulting a policeman who tried to escort him from a roulette table (at which he had lost more than thirty thousand dollars on a single bet). "It made me the hero of the whole of France," he later remarked. "To head-butt a cop is the dream of every Frenchman."

[Sharif's assistant was not amused; she had to fetch him from jail -- on a Saturday.]
