I don’t even know where to begin with this, but here goes. In 2009, comedian Louis C.K. told fellow comedian Stephen Merchant that the “actors” who ask questions on Inside the Actors Studio never get famous. He specifically refers to Sean Penn, or people who ask guys like Sean Penn questions.
It’s funny because it’s kind of true. What future star do you ever remember asking some current star a question on Inside the Actors Studio?
Well, Bradley Cooper once asked a question on that show. And he asked it of Sean Penn. This was back in 1999.
Years after that, Cooper and Louis C.K. would team up in the movie American Hustle.
This video puts all three of those elements together for some odd reason and it’s good for a laugh at the end.
