BY GEORGINA LITTLEJOHN A CELEBRITY parrot who co-starred in a blockbuster film with Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley took excep- tion to the policeman who arrested his owner. The feathered Hollywood (or Polly- wood?) star launched a violent attack on the Kent cop, it emerged today. The bird did more than simply wing his victim -- the officer suffered bite and scratch marks on his hands and arms. The 3ft tall macaw, named Chip, had starred in the first Pirates Of The Caribbean film, The Curse Of The Black Pearl. But the talon-ted actor took excep- tion to the policeman who stopped his owner at Dover port for driving with the parrot perched on her shoulder. The officer arrested the woman on suspicion of driving while banned. The attack came when he attempted to drive her car to the pound, with Chip loose inside. The parrot, who has a 1.2m wingspan, perched on the steering wheel, pecking at the cops fingers throughout the journey. Fortunately, Chip himself was not arrested in the name of macaw to go up before the beak, nor will he do bird in jail. The RSPCA will look after him until the owner is released from cus- tody. And just in case hes upset again, theyll be watching him like a squawk. Chief Superintendent Steve Masters, of the Port of Dover police, said today: A relative of the lady came to pick up the macaw and told us it had been in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. It was a bit of surprise to end up with a celebrity on our hands. London Lite Thursday, 10 September 2009 5 WHITNEY HOUSTON says she spent seven months wearing just pyjamas in the depths of her drug hell with husband Bobby Brown. In an exclusive two-part interview with Oprah Winfrey, Houston reveals how her life first began to spiral out of control after her hit film The Bodyguard in 1992. It will leave you gasping, teased Winfrey. The episode is set to air in the US on Monday. The chat show host added: She does not blame Bobby Brown and she takes full responsibility for her engagement in drugs. At one point she says, I didnt get out of my pyjamas for seven months. Winfrey said she asked the singer before the interview what she wanted to achieve She said, I want to tell my story, I want to tell the truth. In her last television interview, in 2002 with Diane Sawyer, Houston famously denied taking crack cocaine. She told Sawyer at the time: I make too much money to smoke crack. Crack is whack.
