If you happen to be an avid (closeted) Tonight Show viewer, it is no surprise to you that Jay Leno often takes satisfaction in scrounging old footage of his guests in hopes of embarrassing them on the air (oh Jay, you silly thing, you!). Last week, while Ryan Phillippe was on the show to promote Stop-Loss, Leno decided to whip out an old fact about Ryan's first gig as a gay teen on One Life to Live. Trying to make a mundane joke out of the whole gay thing (great material right there, let me tell ya), Leno began to heckle Phillippe to give the camera his "gayest" look. Ryan was a good sport about it and opted not to "go there," but if I were him, I probably would've turned the coffee table around and made Jay give the camera his funniest look, since both are equally as impossible to do. Oh snap!
In lieu of Leno's public apology yesterday, I bring to you the gayest interview ever:
Well, I'm glad whoever that hyena laugh belonged to in the audience enjoyed that. Leno will be here 'til 2009, folks. Try the veal, it's fabulous.
