ANDREW Lloyd Webber disliked the 2019 film of Cats so much that he bought a dog for therapy.
The star-studded big screen version of his classic musical flopped.
It was named worst film of the year at the industry’s 40th Golden Raspberry Awards.
The theatre guru, 73, has now described the adaptation as “off-the-scale all wrong”.
He said it led him to buy a dog, thought to be named Mojito, adding “the one good thing to come out of it is my Havanese puppy”.
Speaking about taking his pet to New York, Sir Andrew revealed: “I said I needed him with me at all times because I’m emotionally damaged and I must have this therapy dog.”
He told theatre news provider Variety: “The airline wrote back and said ‘Can you prove you really need him?’ I said ‘Yes, just see what Hollywood did to my musical Cats’.
“Approval came back with a note saying, ‘No doctor’s report required.’”
