Wowsa!

Kevin Spacey was privileged to be made honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday.

He was honored for his continued work to revive London's iconic theatre, the Old Vic.

Spacey said:

"I was hugely, hugely delighted that Prince Charles has awarded me the CBE, which the Queen has so generously given to me for my services to theatre. (The Prince) was just extraordinarily generous about the work we've done at the Old Vic over these past seven seasons, that I've dedicated myself to the revival of this brilliant, wonderful theatre, and for all the belief that I have that arts and culture are a hugely important part of our lives.

Frankly for me to be standing here today in front of Clarence House having a rather British scene happen directly behind me makes me feel very happy and proud to call London my home."

Congrats!

    Prince Charles is cool as hell and I bet his old lady Queen Elizabeth is cool as hell also, if not a little bit on the squirrelly side. I bet they would be fun to toss back several drinks with and break out a card game. They can come on over to my place. I've got a spare bed and an air mattress and a ton of Led Zeppelin 8 tracks and a package store within walking distance.
