Musician Sting, 70, admitted his wife of 29 years Trudie, occasionally makes him where the iconic space underwear from his stint in 80s film, Dune. The movie was a bit of a box office failure, with the singer apprehensive about featuring in it from the start, and director David Lynch even admitting to never wanting to speak about it again.
Trudie makes me wear them sometimes
Sting, whose real name is Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, has featured in several films throughout the course of his career, with three credits to his name when he appeared in Dune in 1984.
During an appearance on this week’s Jonathon Ross show, he reflected on his role.
“I was a huge fan of Eraserhead and The Elephant Man so the chance to work with a genius I took with both hands,” he explained.
“He said, ‘You’re wearing these flying underpants.'”
With the space garments becoming a very memorable scene in the movie, the singer admitted, laughing: “Trudie makes me wear them sometimes.”
In a previous interview with Rolling Stone, Sting admitted he didn’t really want to do the film.
“I’m doing Dune because of [director David Lynch] and for no other reason,” he said.
“I didn’t really want to do the movie, because I didn’t think it was wise for me to be in an enormous movie.
“I’d rather keep a groundswell building up in my movie career.
“So, I sort of went along dragging my heels.”
The film has since become somewhat of a cult classic, thanks to Lynch’s popularity.
While on the topic of his wife, Sting told Graham about the couple’s supernatural encounter at their home.
“My wife and I saw a ghost one night,” he revealed.
“I didn’t really believe in them but I woke up and I saw a woman and a child standing in the corner of the room.
“I thought, ‘Why is Trudie standing there with our baby?’
“And then I reached over and there she was. She woke up and saw exactly the same thing!”
The 17-time Grammy Award winner’s appearance comes after he released his new album, The Bridge.
Likening writing an album to being in lockdown, he explained: “It moved me out of my cycle. I write, I record and I tour so in the middle of the tour I was cut off so I moved the cycle.
“The whole process is fraught with anxiety – ‘Will I ever write another song? Is it any good? Is it as good as the one I’ve written?’
“It’s always a fraught time.”
The Jonathon Ross Show airs Saturday at 10:05pm on ITV.
