    Spoiler Alert:

    Here's the answer from the man himself.



  • I always assumed La-bee Seeff (you know with the french style silent R, like Le Chiffre in Casino Royale). I guess I forgot that Brits like to change foreign pronunciations as far from their original as possible.

    I thought he is Yes-Homo?

    He is gay but that mispronunciation made me chuckle.
