'Hangover: Part II' Star Zach Galifianakis Tells January Jones to 'F***ing Be Nice'by: Posted:
Let's all agree on one thing: Zach Galifianakis is one of the funniest people on the face of the planet. If you don't agree, watch this video.
If you still don't agree, go sit in the corner and think about your life.
Apparently, "Mad Men" star January Jones thinks Galifianakis is hilarious too: she had mentioned in the past that she thinks Zach is "the most naturally funny man she's ever met," according to an interview with Galifianakis.
Zach's response? "That's really funny...because, if I remember correctly, we were very rude to each other."
Galifianakis then related a tale about the first (and apparently only) time he met Jones: "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,’ and I got up and left."
First off, if you're having a conversation with one of the funniest comedians alive, you don't tell him to leave after 10 minutes. Actually, scratch that...you don't tell anyone to leave after 10 minutes, even if you're January Jones.
Second, it really speaks either to Jones' cluelessness or inability to retain long-term memories that she clearly either though Galifianakis was joking, or forgot about the incident entirely.
Now, to be fair, Galifianakis has a way of being a little awkward and making people uncomfortable. In fact, "Between Two Ferns" is based entirely on that skill. But regardless of whether he actually said something to offend her or not, he has a point: she's the weakest link on a show that will be done in a couple of years.
