Zach Galifianakis Interview About Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Lookalike on Between Two Ferns

Zach Galifianakis Tried to Prank Jennifer Aniston on Between Two Ferns

Zach Galifianakis voices Humpty Dumpty in this week's Puss in Boots, and I recently had a chance to talk to the actor about the film and his web show, Between Two Ferns. Galifianakis has had lots of highlights on the interview spoof series, but when I asked about his favorite moment, he said that it was something that happened off screen when Jennifer Aniston was the guest on Between Two Ferns. Galifianakis said:

"My favorite moment was not on camera. But I had hired a Brad Pitt lookalike to do the Jennifer Aniston one, so he was waiting in the wings. We ended up not using him, because she didn't want that, and [joking] I don't completely understand why. So this Brad Pitt guy, the lookalike, I went up to him, and [said] 'Hey I'm sorry we didn't use you.' And as a joke, 'Maybe we use you some other time. Do you look like anybody else?' And he goes, without even skipping a beat, 'Colin Farrell.' So bizarre."

^^^You need to relax. Clearly he knows why she didn't want it, he was being sarcastic with the "doesn't completely understand why".

I like him but I wish he would stop talking about Jennifer and how he wanted to use a Brad Pitt look-alike on her episode. Seems to me he knows he gets a lot of publicity from bringing up their names and this is now the third or fourth time he's done so. Plus, why is he saying here he "doesn't completely understand why" she wouldn't want to be associated with a Pitt look alike? When he's talked about this elsewhere recently he's admitted it wasn't appropriate for him to ask, that he was wrong and that he felt badly for putting her in an akward situation. It's not that she cares, it's that she knows if she willingly went along with that, the press would jump on it, keep linking her to her ex and making out that she can't get over him. Time for Galifinakis to get some new material and stop using Jennifer's name for press.
