Alan Cummings claims he was thrown out Scots Casino – for doing a handstand


HOLLYWOOD actor Alan Cumming claims he was thrown out a Scots Casino – for doing a handstand.

The X-Men 2 star, who was celebrating his final performance as Macbeth for the National Theatre of Scotland, revealed on Twitter that he had to be “escorted” from the casino premises in the early hours of this morning.

Cumming also claims he was kicked out of a stylish Glaswegian club as he celebrated the last night of his show.

Tweeting at around 2am this morning, the Hollywood actor bemoaned: “I just got kicked out of @corinthianclub with these beautiful peeps. What a nerve!”

But the night continued to go downhill for the respected Scots actor, when an hour later he tweeted: “Omfg!! I have been chucked out of gala casino too!! For doing a handstand!”

Cumming then re-tweeted a pal who posted a picture of the actor doing a handstand online, writing: “This got us “escorted out” of the gala casino in Glasgow.”

Cumming replied to his friend: “What’s the big deal?!”

At around 11am, the actor complained to his 90,000 followers: “Already today two people have said to me they can’t put their jobs on the line because of my potential errant behaviour. I feel bad and sad.”

A manager at Gala Casino, Merchant City in Glasgow refused to comment on whether the actor had been in the Casino yesterday.

He said: “Do you honestly think if Alan Cumming had been in the Casino I would tell you anything about it?”

A manager at the Corinthian Club, which offers luxurious private dining and confidential casino rooms, said she could neither confirm nor deny whether the actor had been at the club.

Cumming had been staying in Glasgow during his run at the NTS where he played the entire cast in Macbeth.

Last month he hit out at Scotland’s bad eating habits, by posting a picture of a poster of a young Scottish family in their gym gear eating a greasy mix of chips and pizza.

The actor slammed the advert, writing: “I know I’m back in Glasgow when I see an ad with a family in gym gear smiling in front of cartons of chips and pizza.”
