Emma Watson Has Been Drunk, and Kathie Lee Gifford Can't Read?
07.12.11 by Mandy
It all ends July 15, and the promotional tour is well under way. The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 cast is making the rounds at talk shows this week, and some interesting tidbits are coming from the interviews. From David Letterman making Emma Watson uncomfortable with his interrogation of her drinking experiences, to Kathie Lee Gifford apparently suggesting that she never learned how to read, some of these interviews are quite entertaining. There's bound to be more to come this week, but these two are probably our favorites so far.
In this clip from Today, there's a quick look at the Fiendfyre scene from the final Harry Potter movie, followed by an interview with Ron Weasely, himself, Rupert Grint. While admitting that Ron definitely lives to see the end of the movie, Grint teases that he can't say if Hermione does or not. Then, in response to Kathie Lee Gifford, does a strange little pantomime of shocked and scared. Right, if you're really that invested, Kathie Lee, wouldn't you have either read the book that came out over four years ago, or at least read one of the thousands of articles/blog entries/synopses online that contain spoilers about who lives and who dies? It's pretty weird. Or maybe she's just trying to embrace the way Kristen Wiig portrays her on SNL. As a bonus, Grint also talks about rapping in drag.
In this month's British GQ, Daniel Radcliffe admitted to partying and drinking, so in a recent episode of the Late Show with David Letterman, Letterman decided to ask Emma Watson about her own drinking habits. Watch as Watson gets very cutely flustered.
