If one of the most famous people in the world had a booger hanging out of his nose, would you tell him?
That’s the dilemma Judd Apatow was faced with during a meeting with “a very famous star” who “either played Batman or is about to play Batman,” the “Anchorman 2” producer told Jimmy Fallon on Thursday’s “Late Night.”
“I noticed half way through that he just has an enormous booger hanging out of his nose — like a really big booger hanging out of his nose,” Apatow said. “Then you’re in that weird position, like, ‘Do I tell this cool guy that he has a big booger hanging out of his nose?'”
Apatow decided against spoiling the embarrassing surprise awaiting either Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Christian Bale, Val Kilmer, Michael Keaton or Adam West (I have hunch it was most likely one of the first three choices) when they looked in the mirror.
“Then he’s acting all cool and sexy, but he doesn’t know he’s got a booger. And so, then I decided, ‘OK, this is kind of cool because now I’m dominating the lunch,” Apatow said. “Now he’s booger guy.”
