Jennifer Lawrence & Anne Hathaway Give Most Awkward Pre-Oscar Interview Ever

The Oscar nominees got a break from doing serious interviews when they sat down with Zach Galifianakis

When you're an Oscar nominee, you do a whole slew of interviews, which basically means saying the same things over and over. How refreshing, then, to see an interview in which Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz say some things we've never heard out of their mouths -- all of them equally embarrassing! Of course, we're talking about Zach Galifianakis' aggressively awkward Funny or Die chat show, Between Two Ferns.

First up, we've got Silver Linings Playbook star Lawrence, who is immediately informed that her costar Bradley Cooper told Galifianakis that she's ugly. When Lawrence stands up for herself, the comedian tells her not to do that, because "it's off-putting."

"You should be off pudding. Cause you're fat," she retorts, only to be played off the stage, Oscar-style.

A little later, Hathaway (the star of French Movie, according to the subtitle) saunters onstage and hugs Galifianakis, acting completely sloshed.

"No I didn't," she says when he points out that she's drunk. "You don't know that. You can't prove it. It's my perfume." Then she launches into a loud, sloppy cover of Beyonce's "Best Thing I Never Had."

Also featured: Watts, who explains the process of being "shrunk" to fit inside a movie camera; Waltz, who admits he's thought about changing his name to "Christoph Breakdancing;" and Adams, who is instructed to say a line of dialogue that's too filthy to repeat here.

All in all, it's nice to see Oscar nominees letting loose and acting ridiculous when they've spent the last eight weeks earnestly discussing their "craft." And Anne, if you're reading this, can we join you for karaoke some time?
