After his incendiary interviews with Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, and Amy Adams yesterday, Zach Galifianakis is back between two ferns with Jessica Chastain, Sally Field, and Brad Cooper. I won’t ruin any of the lines in this edition for you this time, but suffice to say, they’re pretty good. By the way, I refuse to call Brad Cooper “Bradley.” You’re already ridiculously rich and charming and handsome, you don’t get to act like your name’s not Brad by lengthening it. Your name is Brad, Brad. It’s not my job to enforce your artistic affectations.
In related news, Jessica Chastain has taken to Facebook to deny a rumor that she and Jennifer Lawrence are feuding:
I find it very sad that media makes up bogus stories about women fighting in this industry. Filming The Help was the most amazing experience and yet, that is the film Im most asked about in regards to “fighting on set”. Why do we support the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along?
I think all of the actresses recognized this year have given incredible performances. But more important, they’ve all shown themselves to be filled with generosity and kindness. I’ve done two photo shoots with Jennifer Lawrence over the years and have found her to be utterly charming and a great talent. I’ve told her how beautiful her film work is.
Please don’t allow the media to perpetuate the myth that women arent supportive of each other. Everytime an actress is celebrated for her great work, I cheer. For the more brilliant their performance, the more the audience demands stories about women. With support and encouragement, we help to inspire this industry to create opportunities for women. And as we all know: a great year for women in film, is just a great year for film xxjes
I know we’re all about not giving the h8rs fuel by acknowledging them these days, but let this be a lesson to you: if you take the time to refute a rumor no one has actually heard before, it just makes you seem crazy.
