Cate Blanchett and Sarah Paulson have known each other for years, but it wasn’t until now that we realized how close they are. The pair first worked together on the 2015 film Carol, and now they’re doing press for their latest film, Ocean’s 8. In a recent interview with Hota Kotb, Paulson and Blanchett’s hysterical conversation and endless banter had Kotb in tears.
Hoda could barely get a word in because she was laughing so hard. That wasn’t a worry, though, because Blachett and Paulson filled the time with their own jokes. They were so funny that they even had people who were working in the studio in stitches.
When Hoda finally was able to get a question in, she asked if the actresses were having fun promoting the film. The dynamic duo of Paulson and Blanchett then responded with a straight face, “This is not going well. We’re not enjoying it,” which led to another eruption of giggles.
When Hoda decided to call Savannah Guthrie in for backup, Paulson and Blanchett made room for her on the couch. How? Naturally, Blanchett sat on top of Paulson, who pretended to be her friend’s arms.
Hoda finished the interview by saying, “We’ve done so many interviews for movies. And never one like this.”
People took to social media to comment on the interview, with most saying they couldn’t stop laughing:
Yo gays, Cate Blanchett and Sarah Paulson were in an interview together. I haven’t laughed this hard in my entire life.
