VANITY FAIR: Maggie Smith, 83, has no f*cks left to give, so remembers butting heads with Laurence Olivier (1907-1989), who criticized her enunciation and timing. His disdain for her got physical:

During a different show—in a scene in which Othello scuffles with Desdemona—Olivier actually struck Smith across the face. “He did knock me out,” Smith says. “I was left with some black marks [from his makeup] on my face.” But once the curtain closed that evening, Smith got the last laugh: “I did say it was the only time I saw stars at the National Theatre.”
