Martin Freeman in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

“I can get so much cocaine with this.”

Showbiz 411 interviewed Martin Freeman at the premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. What they got in return was pure gold.

We already highlighted Martin Freeman’s penchant for flipping off the cameras on the set of The Hobbit, but we haven’t really delved into his love of giving sarcastic answers to interview questions. In the video below, he offhandedly mentions how he overcame his “lack of any talent” by sleeping his way to the top. The interview gets even sillier when he’s asked, “Can you tell us something about shooting these films that might surprise fans?”

The secret to filming The Hobbit? Cocaine and speedballs, of course.

This explains a lot about those Great Spiders in Mirkwood…
