Just because Brad Pitt is in on the jokes doesn’t make the latest “Between Two Ferns” interview any less awkward.
“Is it hard for you to maintain a suntan?” Galifianakis asked Pitt, “Because you live in your wife’s shadow.”
Pitt, who married actress Angelina Jolie in August, maintained his composure and allowed Galifianakis to take a second strike at him.
“Tell me what it was like the first time you laid eyes on Angelina,” Galifianakis said. “Was it like one of those classical love stories, like when Ross first saw Rachel? You know that show, ‘Friends?'”
Galifianakis then played the theme song from the hit television series that Pitt’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston used to star on.
Louis C.K. also makes an appearance halfway through the segment after Galifianakis becomes bored with Pitt’s explanation about his charity, The Make It Right Foundation, and its work rebuilding New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. C.K. is asked to perform some standup to “liven things up.”
Galifianakis’ final question, “Do you think people focus too much on your looks and don’t even realize that you’re just a shitty actor,” led Pitt to spit the gum he was chewing in the host’s face.
