Put Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in a room together and you’re bound to get comedy gold.
That’s what BuzzFeed has done, by putting the “Despicable Me 3” stars in front of a camera and getting them to ask each other some very ridiculous questions.
They hit on topics as wide-ranging as they are silly. Fist up, “F***, marry, kill: pizza, alcohol and John Krasinski?” To which Carell says he’d “f*** pizza, kill alcohol and marry John Krasinski,” of course, “because he’s a sweetheart.”
Wiig, meanwhile, was asked if she’s ever pretended to not be herself when asked by fans. “All the time,” Wiig says. “Instead of recognizing me, they always tell me I look like Kristen Wiig or I look like someone that was on SNL, or something. And then I’m just like, ‘Oh yeah, I get that all the time!'”
Carell chimes in with his own hilarious story about being recognized as someone famous: “I was on vacation with my family and a woman came up to me. The woman said, ‘Can I have my…picture…Ben Stiller?’ And I was like, ‘No. I’m not Ben Stiller.'”
Then there are the craziest tabloid rumours they’ve heard about themselves.
“They’re all crazy!” Wiig says. “I went to a restaurant with my friend’s parents and it was very loud for them, so we asked to move. According to the papers, I hated my seat, so I asked to be moved three times. And I left my bag at the table, and when they returned it to me, I yelled at the manager and told them it was their fault. They just make sh*t – stuff – up!”
Of course, being a celebrity can be used to one’s advantage. Just ask Carell.
“Yes, all the time. It’s all I do,” Carell says of using his celeb status. “But more importantly, the look on someone’s face when they know that they aren’t as important as you are, is PRICELESS. I love it!”
