Just about everyone in Hollywood is on Zach Galifianakis‘ s*** list, including Zach Galifianakis. “Inappropriateness is funny to me,” he said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. “Rudeness is hilarious.” With that sensibility, it’s no surprise that his s*** list reads like a scroll of people who’ve scorned him, à la Steve Buscemi’s People To Kill list in “Billy Madison.”
But Galifianakis isn’t harming anyone, except with his words. And at least the dude gives others the opportunity to publicly humiliate him with Between Two Ferns. Galifianakis is once again brutally honest about which celebrities he finds distasteful in the Rolling Stone interview. Check out those celebrities with a cozy place on his s*** list on the next page.
“I saw that Ke$ha woman the other day,” Galifianakis told Rolling Stone. “She was sitting by herself, and I walked up to her and said, ‘Listen, I got your email. Your music is really bad! I don’t know who listens to it, but I imagine it’s, like, 6-year-olds–and it’s a bad message.’” To be fair, though, we know a bunch of 6-year-olds who brush their teeth with Jack Daniel’s. But the bearded funnyman is not impressed.
During pre-production for “The Hangover 2″, Galifianakis was adamantly opposed to Mel Gibson’s involvement because of that whole tirade involving Gibson’s baby mama, Oksana. But hey, that fiasco made the Mel Gibson soundboard possible, so there’s that.
“The Hangover Part 2” director Todd Phillips earned Galifianakis’ wrath because he’s the guy who cast Mel Gibson in a cameo in the film. So Zach took to the airwaves in a Comedy Death-Ray podcast and revealed: “I’m in a deep protest right now with a movie I’m working on, up in arms about something. But I can’t get the guys to [listen]…I’m not making any leeway.” Eventually, Gibson was axed from the part. (Score one for ZG.)
Then during the the 14th annual Hollywood Awards Gala, Phillips presented Zach with the Comedy Actor Award. When Zach received the honor, he called Phillips “The worst Jew in Hollywood.” Galifianakis then added “that’s an inside joke.” We suspect the beef was resolved with a staring contest.
January Jones probably made a distinct face, like the one above, when she had an awkward encounter with Galifianakis at a party. Apparently, she thought the exchange was funny, but Zach had another take: “It was crazy. I was at a party–I’d never met her–and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so f***ing be nice.’”
Sage advice. Nevertheless, she’s on the list.
Parents Who Let Young Children Watch His Movies
Zach Galifianakis’ comedy is funny. It’s bizarre. And it’s definitely not for children, and he knows it. He told Rolling Stone that when he’s approached by young fans he tells them that they have awful parents. “And I mean it,” he added. You have to admire honesty like that.
The source of all this scorn? Yeah, Galifianakis hates him too. Zach revealed that when he’s approached by people who ask if he’s the guy from “The Hangover,” he says “No. I hate that guy. I think he’s a terrible actor. And he’s fat.”
Your move, Hollywood.
