Sarah Silverman stopped by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Monday to promote her new movie “Ralph Breaks the Internet” but the controversial comedian is finding it hard to keep it PG.
Silverman voices the character Vanellope in the new animated film, a sequel to 2012’s “Wreck-It Ralph” but as she explains to Meyers, she sometimes forgets she’s promoting a children’s movie.
The 47-year-old comedian, who is known for her explicit sense of humour, told a story about how she was reprimanded during a press junket at Disneyland while promoting the first movie.
“They kept drilling it into me, ‘You know, just a reminder that this is a children’s movie and blah blah blah…,’ and I’m like, ‘I get it. I’m not, you know, a monster,” Silverman recalled.
At first, the “I Love You, America” host couldn’t see the problem, she thought she was doing fine. She remembered telling the movie representative, “‘Yeah, I work blue in my comedy but I certainly know the difference.'”
However, apparently, Silverman accidentally let something slip, as she said the rep informed her: “‘Well, in that interview you just said that Q*Bert does coke.'”
Meyers backed Silverman up, saying that it would make sense if the ’80s arcade character had a cocaine habit. “I feel like he’s built for it… isn’t he all just one long nose?”
“Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens in theatres Wednesday, November 21.
