Although she makes her living in front of the camera, Lauren Hutton did not take kindly to a London photographer's attempts to shoot the actress-model and her longtime steady, silver-haired investor Bob Williamson, as they exited recently from a Mayfair restaurant. Lauren, 40, lit into the offender (he's the one with the beard) and even enlisted two passersby to join in the fight. Following the fracas, she gave the shaken photographer a well-known international gesture to remember her by. Given her hitherto unrevealed fistic prowess, it's a good bet Hutton's next screen assignment just might match her with Sly Stallone in Rocky IV. In the meantime, she'll show up later this month playing an evil Nazi countess opposite Magnum, P.I.'s Tom Selleck in the new caper film, Lassiter.
Making up is hard to do
That glamorous creature (above) holding a powder puff is Marilyn, London's latest singing sensation, who has scored big with his/ her first single, Calling Your Name. Currently close to the top of the British pop charts, Calling is promised, along with an album, for U.S. release by spring. Marilyn, 21, uses no last name and won't say what his mother calls him but does list his measurements as 36-28-36. Meanwhile, England's best-known cross-dresser, Boy George (below), 22, has been letting down his side; he was caught without his makeup on in London recently. Unlike Marilyn, though, Boy and his group, Culture Club, have the No. 4 LP on the American charts, Colour by Numbers. Nothing sissy about that.
