In the hilarious Plead the Fifth segment, the Sweetest Thing actress was questioned about her love life by Andy Cohen as fellow guest Mark Consuelos watched on in glee.
The bubbly 43-year-old was happy to answer Cohen’s first question: Had she ever gone “swimming in the lady pool,” like her former costar Cameron Diaz? “That means gone lesbian for a moment?” she asked. “No, that’s not my cup of lady pond,” she replied.
But when Cohen asked her which of the men she’d played opposite (citing her Vacation costar Chris Hemsworth as an example) had had the biggest bulge, Applegate went coy.
“I have to plead the fifth on that one,” she replied, flashing her wedding ring at Consuelos, who agreed that it was a good call.
Unfortunately for Applegate, Cohen had left the best question to the end! “In your files there was much talk of a date with Brad Pitt to the MTV Movie Awards in 1989,” Cohen told the nervous-looking actress, adding that the reports included claims from Applegate that she had ditched the date. “You ditched him for another guy?” asked Cohen. “The question is, who was the guy you ditched Brad Pitt for?”
Looking terrified, Applegate asked, “How many fifths do I get?”
“You had your fifth,” replied Cohen. “Was he well known?”
“Do I have to say it?” asked the Prince Charming star, before adding. “I don’t have to do nothing!”
“Was he an actor?” Cohen went on.
“No,” replied Applegate before sealing her lips.
Watch the very funny, hugely awkward clip above to see what four other pieces of information Cohen manages to get out of the actress despite the fact she remained almost mute!
