Hollywood’s biggest stars are usually on the receiving end of hundreds, if not thousands, of interviews during their careers. But when the tables are turned, what would they ask their colleagues and costars? Total Film recently found out, when the UK film magazine scheduled a five-month long “video chain letter” between well-known actors, writers, and directors.
In an attempt to create “the world’s most audacious video chain letter,” the editors at Total Film had their guests ask questions of the magazine’s next guest.
“Everyone we’re interviewing, we are basically asking them to ask the next person a question,” the magazine explained, kicking things off with Anne Hathaway.
The Interstellar star, 31, was asked to think of an interview question for fellow Oscar winner Kate Winslet, and started the chain off on a delicious note.
“Um… I can’t talk to her, I’m so shy!” Hathaway lamented, burying her head in her hands. “Um… Kate Winslet. What is your favorite breakfast? That is my question.”
“Oh, Annie!” Winslet, 38, responded. “She’s so sweet. Oh god, what is my favorite breakfast? My favorite breakfast probably in the whole wide world, real treaty favorite breakfast, is eggs benedict.”
Winslet went on to ask a question of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb, in a chain that continued through to British actor Toby Jones.
Jones, 47, had a query for A Million Ways to Die in the West star Charlize Theron, asking, “Hi, Charlize. Do you feel trapped by your looks as an actress?”
“I feel like you wrote down that question for him! Or he’s drunk,” the former model, 39, exclaimed. “I love Toby. I don’t know, I mean, I think when I started definitely, yeah. When I started, there was no… it just wasn’t kosher to be a model-turned-actress. That just didn’t really exist. There was really no role models that were doing that successfully. So it was definitely like walking in and just denying the fact that you ever did any modeling and thank god there was no internet back then.”
The question session was continued with Andy Serkis, who was asked by Theron what his last meal would be. “Well, Charlize, my answer would be very simply the food that I grew up on,” the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes actor, 50, said. “Very poor spaghetti with very rubbishy cheese sauce and chunks of tuna from a tin. Sorry! I’m not very glamorous in that respect.”
Serkis then turned things over to Guardians of the Galaxy breakout superstar Chris Pratt, asking, “You’re surrounded probably by a number of people in leotards and head-mounted cameras. Is this freaky?”
