A Passion for Life

Michael Winner

Recently affianced, filmmaker, journalist, friend of the stars, socialite and bon-viveur, the aptly named Michael Winner has measured out his life in champagne flutes.  As he candidly declares: “My greatest passion, by a long way, is me. I shall talk about me.” This was a fabulous half hour of outrageous anecdotes from the man who mastered dieting.

Film critic, journalist, director and producer, Michael Winner has had a very successful career in cinema. He is the founder of the Police Memorial Trust. He is the author of an autobiography, Winner takes AllWinner Guide to Whining and Dining and The Fat Pig Diet.
