RTE viewers all said the same thing about Gabriel Byrne following his conversation with Tommy Tiernan tonight.
The Irish actor talked to Tommy about his parents, his actions, expressing his emotions and whether he’s a “strange man”.
Gabriel, the first guest on tonight’s talk show, talked about how he thought he was a strange man before turning the tables on Tommy and interviewing him.
He said, “Yes, I think I’m a weird man. But the weird thing is you don’t really know you’re weird until someone like you raises an eyebrow and says, ‘Do you think I’m weird? is a strange man? ‘
“Let me ask you something, do you think you are a strange man?”
Tommy replied: “Yes, I think I am, I think I tend to be isolating.
“There’s a beautiful line in a Bob Dylan song, ‘I have nothing but love for everyone who’s been with me.’ And I have huge feelings for all of my friends and family. and my wife.
“And I was raised very strangely – born in Donegal, then we moved to Africa, then we moved to London, then we moved to Athlone, then we moved to Navan and then I’m in Ballinasloe so I’m somewhere along the front lines . . . and I think working as an audience with just you on the stage and I think being famous increases the likelihood of retreating from greed of the public.”
