Zach Galifianakis‘ wonderfully awkward web show Between Two Ferns is back with a star studded “Oscar buzz” edition featuring brilliant insights from Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, and Naomi Watts. Let’s get weird!
There are a lot of famous guests to pack into six minutes, so Zach doesn’t waste any time packing in the hard hitting questions. For first guest, the beautiful and talented Jennifer Lawrence, his question is not so much a question as a statement: Bradley Cooper had told him she’d be ugly in person, you see, but she’s not ugly at all! J-Law responds with some mean puns about Zach’s weight, which he calls “off putting,” to which she responds “you should be off pudding.” Burn.
Next, he talks to Naomi Watts about the toilets in Australia, and seems confused about if “backwards” means the poop goes back into your body. They also talk about the side effects of being shrunk down to fit in a movie camera.
Then he talks to Christoph Waltz, a.k.a. the German guy from Django Unchained, and asks him if he says the n-word more in the movie or real life.
Soon thereafter, a drunken Anne Hathaway, who is nominated for her role in “French movie,” hangs all over Zach and tries to sing Beyonce‘s “Best Thing I Never Had.” This is funny because Anne is normally a classy lady, and also because she is singing badly.
The best part, though, comes when Amy Adams is asked to say a line with weight and gravity, that line being “don’t you ever…fart on my tits again,” and she nails it. Someone give this woman an Oscar!
If you enjoyed this little interview segment, the best news of all is that it’s only the first part of several.
