Actor Zach Galifianakis returned to his FunnyOrDie.com show, Between The Ferns, to interview Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Anne Hathaway and other Oscar nominated actors. As you might expect, it gets a little awkward, especially when Lawrence calls the Hangover star fat and Hathaway shows up drunk.
Galifianakis introduces the special as a “special Oscar insight into the Oscar nominees and all their Oscar buzzness around them.” First up is Lawrence, but just as she starts to talk about her Silver Linings Playbook character, she gets buzzed and guided off the stage.
The rest of the first episode includes discussions with The Impossible Naomi Watts about the backwards direction of toilets in Australia and talking with Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) about changing his name to Christoph Break Dance. Later, Hathaway (star of French Movie) shows up drunk and Amy Adams (The Master) gets an uncomfortable line to read.
In the second episode, he chats with Jessica Chastain (0 Dark 30), Sally Field (Linkin Park), a kid that doesn’t turn out to be Daniel Day-Lewis and his Hangover co-star, Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Cookbook). Unfortunately, Cooper gets a little out of hand after Galifianakis gives him a concession speech for when he loses to Day-Lewis at the Oscars.
Hopefully, these interviews don’t hurt their chances at the Oscars on Feb. 24.
