Flashback Friday: Lisa Kudrow Spoof At The MTV Awards 1999

“Friends” star Lisa Kudrow hosted the MTV (Movie?) Awards in 1999 and as such, the host gets to star in a spoof of whatever popular film is out at the moment. In this case it was of course TPM, so here’s Lisa addressing the Jedi Council.

    DETAILS: In almost every online ranking of Star Wars movies, Phantom Menace is rated as the worst. Do you defend the movie or agree with people who think it’s a piece of crap?

    Ewan McGregor: I watched it once, at the premiere, so I’m not in a good position to judge. They had a tall order, the three films I did. The fans waited so long and wanted to feel like they did when they watched the first film, but they were grown-ups by that time. I don’t mind the criticism. I’ve heard it to my face.

    Love these flashbacks, LP!. Lisa Kudrow is awesome.

    Wow, Ewan didn’t pull any punches in regards to the Star Wars neckbeards in that details.com interview. It sucks that it sounds like his Star Wars fan experience hasn’t been the greatest because of the prequel haters. It’s probably the same for Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen too…

    Although Ewan does share in the tradition of Obi-wan actors not liking the fan culture that has arisen with Star Wars. 😛

      Yeah, no kidding! Don’t hold back, Ewan, tell us how you really feel!

      He’s talked before about how he loves talking to kids who are fans but his experiences with alleged grownup fans have been mostly with weirdos and the “parasites and lowlifes” such as overly-aggressive autograph seekers. The pro autograph hounds have been the bane of not only celebrities but also the fans over the past 20 years. They’re the reason why you have to pay $150 to get Mark Hamill’s autograph today. I remember a time in the ’90s when you’d get autographs free with your convention admission. Not anymore!

        I just find it’s really poor professionalism to interview an actor, director, etc and state “Wow, that movie you did was really awful, don’t you agree?”. This guy does it with Ewan and “The Island”, along with asking if TPM is “crap”. I think it’s disrespectful and it’s better to just talk about projects and what might have achieved what they sought or didn’t.

      • lazypadawan Says:

        On that account, I totally agree with you. It would’ve been funny had Ewan said, “I keep hearing that, largely from journalists. The kids tell me different.”

      • PrinceOfNaboo Says:

        They’ve been trying this all the time with Ewan! But not everybody is a Steven Spielberg who “admits” what went “wrong” once a bit of critism appears.
