The Troublemaker tells the truth! Dane Cook appeared on Watch What Happens Live, Thursday, Oct. 16, and played a game of Plead the Fifth with Andy Cohen and CNN’s Candy Crowley.

“We’re gonna put a spin on Plead the Fifth,” Cohen told viewers, adding that if the comedian refused to respond, Crowley would squirt cheese wiz into his mouth.

The first question was light. “Who is the most overrated comic of all time?” Cohen asked.

Cook, 42, who has been promoting his new stand-up special Troublemaker, responded with “Gallagher.”

Cohen then asked the comic to name his worst on-screen kiss ever. “Umm… Kate Hudson,” Cook replied. “Did a movie with her — My Best Friend’s Girl — and I think she purposely ate a feast of onions right before the scene. I had to burn her on that one.”

His juiciest response, though, was related to Jessica Simpson, with whom Cook starred in 2006’s Employee of the Month. “What was the dumbest thing she said on set?” Cohen inquired. Laughing, Cook revealed: “I think she said one day, ‘Are we making a movie?!'”

Other juicy tidbits revealed by Cook during the rapid-fire Q&A included the number of groupies he’s slept with while touring college campuses, and which male stand-up comic he would “swim in the man pond with.”
