What he said:
“I am attracted to you, but I don’t like you.”
Andy Murray and Richard Ayoade screened contenders for ‘Andy Murray: The Movie’ in a skit for Stand Up To Cancer, Channel 4’s charity drive. The tennis player was the “executive consultant producer of casting”.
Tim Henman was informed by the Scot that he was “flat, dull and unengaging – exactly what we are looking for” and that he had made the final two. Murray complained that he had never made the final two to which Ayoade rejoined, “The nation knows that.”
The merry show continued.
At one point, Murray said (to Ayoade), “I don’t like you.”
Ayoade responded: “I am attracted to you, but I don’t like you.”
What he really meant:
“In other words: Fatal attraction.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“What a Mills and Boons truism.”
