It's easy to forget that Brad Pitt isn't just a slick-looking dude on the red carpet — no matter how many iconic characters he plays or movies he produces. Luckily, appearances like this interview with Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns reminds us that he's got comedic chops and a whole lot of personality.
If you ask anyone who's covered a movie junket, they'll tell you all about the horrors of video interviews. The actor has been squeezing out two-minute sound bites all day, and they're tired, and they keep getting the same dumb questions from people in orange foundation. It's definitely a moment of reckoning.
Zach Galifianakis is a master of uncomfortable humor — which is what makes his Between Two Ferns so damn enjoyable. Plus, he gets over five minutes with the star. What luxury that must be. And, he gets to ask the weirdest, dumbest, most uncomfortable questions — the kind that would get a regular person blackballed by every studio in town. Like, "Showers. Why don't you take them?" and "Is it hard for you to maintain a suntan? Because you live in your wife's shadow." (It's funny because it might be true!)
If that wasn't enough, Louis C.K. drops by to do a very short bit on rats, Ebola, and ISIS. And there's a gift-wrapped bong. It's like a present just for you on this long Thursday.
