I think it should be pretty obvious to anyone who watches the interview that Diane Keaton has lost the Colbert Nation vote.

Do you have any idea what Diane Keaton's pussy tastes like when it's been soaking in apple juice all day? Not half as sweet as the sports action you're gonna see on ESPN.

ESPN, Cowboys vs. Redskins, catch it!

"Like a pussy soaked in apple juice."

She was slightly drunk and raring to rip Colbert's clothes off his body. Sure hope his wife wasn't watching.

The interview was funny as shiat. My wife and I were flailing on the couch in hysterics. It's so rare for Colbert to not be in charge of the interview, and she just came out swingin' and owned it the whole way through. Colbert tries to grab the reigns with the "bravery" bit and then slowly loses his grip over the rest of it. It was fantastic.

The weirdest part was how she kept wanting to talk about the book, like how it's now in paperback and is being released tomorrow, but refused to say anything else about the book.

"Let's talk about my book. It's coming out tomorrow. You should buy it."
"OK, now you talk about your mother a lot in this book."
"I would never vote for you Stephen, you're a pervert."
*few minutes of nonsense*
"Hey, my book! So, it's now in paperback and it's coming out tomorrow."
"OK, so this book is about your life as an actress...."
"I don't want to see your naked ass, Stephen... you pervert!"

GAT_00: I think that whole thing was staged. But that was bizarre.


I don't know. It seemed like Colbert was seriously having trouble keeping her engaged in the interview and not off on some weird tangent.

The Jack White interview was obviously staged. White could barely keep a straight face during most of it.
 
2012-05-02 03:37:42 PM
I'm not saying she is fine, but she is still attractive to me.

Did anyone else notice that TFA describes the interview as inaccurately and disingenuously as possible? Seems kinda weird, considering they had the video embedded. Perhaps the author doesn't know what laughter after a statement signifies...
 
2012-05-02 03:41:08 PM
It was a difficult interview to watch because it felt like two conversations were going on where we only were hearing one side of the speech. Colbert clearly didn't expect things to go that way, because he had a hard time keeping a straight face. He just kept playing "yes, and..." to keep the good thing going.

All in all, a memorable and hilarious interview. But only because Diane Keaton is one of the the last people anyone would expect to pull a stunt like that.

I completely agree with this. I hate when news anchors talk about how beautiful some 80 year old ex-movie star is and show a photo of them in a sexy dress. They aren't beautiful anymore and that's fine. We all get old so we should show some dignity and not whore ourselves out for catcalls, years after our respective sex organs gave up. This idea that we must be sexually attractive forever is unrealistic and a little gross.

I don't hate Diane Keaton, but every time I see her I'm reminded of Warren Beatty, and I hate Warren Beatty because I sat through Bulworth in the theaters. In particular, this scene is where he went right on my shiatlist, never to be removed from it:

The best Colbert interview ever is when he had some religious scholar on, and then completely decimated the guys point with actual Catholic teachings. The guy could only shoot back with "well, you obviously paid attention in Sunday School."

To which Colbert immediately fired back, "I teach Sunday School, motherf**ker!"

The first time Branson came on the show, it's like he didn't get Colbert's persona and it resulted in a really uncomfortable interview culminating in Branson throwing a glass of water on Colbert and laughing nervously. It was painful.

You mean that he's not funny? I even watched this clip hoping he might be for a change. He tries too hard to get laughs but all he really only has one gag and it's old. The most amusing part of the whole thing was how hard his audience laughs when he says "farking" (or whatever he said that was bleeped).

Colbert fans always seem to say his guests don't get his "tone" or whatever and that may be the case for some, but I didn't see that here.

Happy Hours: Shenanigans!: e-christ: Did anyone else notice that TFA describes the interview as inaccurately and disingenuously as possible? Seems kinda weird, considering they had the video embedded. Perhaps the author doesn't know what laughter after a statement signifies...

Guess someone's trying to stir up controversy where there is none. "Diane Keaton acts silly during Colbert interview, fails to truly grasp the tone of Colbert's show" is a much less titillating headline than "Keaton calls Colbert a Pervert!!!1!!eleventy!"

You mean that he's not funny? I even watched this clip hoping he might be for a change. He tries too hard to get laughs but all he really only has one gag and it's old. The most amusing part of the whole thing was how hard his audience laughs when he says "farking" (or whatever he said that was bleeped).

Colbert fans always seem to say his guests don't get his "tone" or whatever and that may be the case for some, but I didn't see that here.


Wow, usually those that don't "get" Colbert can't understand why he's funny. You seem to be vaguely aware that there is something about his tone that must be "gotten" but are still unable to nail it down. It's like there's a blind spot in your sense of humour. Fascinating.

Don't worry though, like colour blind folks, you can still function in society.

The Jack White interview was obviously staged. White could barely keep a straight face during most of it.


well that, and the "Atttention: ALL musical guests must be interviewed. -C-" sign directly over colbert's shoulder was a dead giveaway


also, thanks to whoever mentioned the "i teach sunday school!" interview. i think i should go rewatch that. i assume it was somebody promoting an asinine book.

I don't know. It seemed like Colbert was seriously having trouble keeping her engaged in the interview and not off on some weird tangent.

Wait, Dōjinshi? *FAVORITED*

So that's what it takes, huh?

Not being DougieAXP is only step 1.

So we have not being Dougie (check), liking anime (sorta...), and doing dojinshi (nope).

Oh well, you're still my favorite favorited Farker anyway.

Well I would have said liking anime was just a step, but especially here on Fark grown adult females liking anime (much less drawing it) is rare.

And she seems pleasant.

Being a hardcore Simpsons fan is enough for me.

Nope, that's not what I said or meant at all. What I got from that clip was Keaton was in on the joke and tried to play the role of the adversarial interview guest, but unlike Colbert, she couldn't do it, which resulted in unintentional comedy on her part.

Like Colbert or not, he is playing a character who by his own admission is a confrontational jerk during interviews. Some guests get this and are great at playing along; some don't. In Keaton's case, she got it but didn't successfully execute the "playing along" part. Maybe if she'd had a better director she could've pulled it off...

Sorry you don't find him funny, but that's life. Different people find different things funny, and no amount of arguing can change anyone's mind. Hope you enjoy whatever it is that makes you laugh.

No, she didn't. Her abstract idea of throwing him off with unsettling attacks and flippancy could have been awesome, if it had been executed with humor and wit. But it wasn't. She started off with the "were you naked" non-sequitur, and it just got lamer from there: "I don't like you, I don't want to see your butt-naked ass..." Was this some kind of inside joke? You seem to think this was hilarious all on its own, if that was supposedly out-Colberting Colbert. Do you think third-grade recess should have it's own time slot on Comedy Central?

This was one of his best interviews. Colbert showed how quick he was, too, with the line about her mother and "just tell us one farking thing about the book." That's why his interviews rock, he's the quickest wit in the west, and can even deal with slightly addled actresses trying to throw off his game.

I never claimed it was awesome how she did it, but she did use typical Colbert tactics to throw the conversation into the ridiculous. He's almost never serious business, why should his guests be? Because that's the status quo? Someone's pissy...and it's not Colbert, Keaton, me, or any other rational fan...

Pfffft. I do see a typo in there, but whatever. Colbert's schtick, since he was on the Daily Show, was to ask ridiculous questions and provoke the person he's interviewing, he's a professional de-railer. Deny it all you want, it's your right to be a willfully obtuse zealot if you choose to be.

Not sure Stephen is into that kind of white knighting. I would imagine he finds it as creepy as I do. I do like the guy, he can be genuinely entertaining. I'm not denigrating him, not even saying he was pwned, but he was kept on his toes by an older woman. Drunk, high, whatever, doesn't matter. I thought it was cool to see, that's all.

You sure are a touchy lot of white knights.

It because she reminds you of those self indulged socialites that hear a discussion on NPR earlier in the week then pretend to be experts themselves as the drop the topic into a conversation with you.

Picture her and a few people like her sitting around drinking expensive wine complaining about the downtrodden in africa and talking about how someone really needs to do something about it.

Imagine you are a waiter at a restaurant or a checker at the store, she is the woman who looks at you like you are beneath her or her servant and can't indulge in a polite "thank you" and instead keeps yammering on her friends about some topic she learned about from NPR.

self-indulged and dismissive.

this is why I like Colbert. If the guest is also witty and willing to indulge in some absurdity/bullshiatting type discussion it can be great. It seems the 'nerds/smart' people he has on get this and can play along and can get a funny smartass response off once and a while.

If the guest is an ideological idiot/zealot, it is fun to see stephen insult them where they don't even seem to know it or rattle them with questions a 3 year old would ask about the ridiculous idea the guest is pushing.

I have to contest that last part though, his normal interviews are so rare as to be nonexistant.

Never seen a 100% serious interview by SC, he always brings some levity to the table.

No, for me I'm pretty sure it's because I'd only known her as Kay from The Godfather for a long time, the only character in the film I really can't stand, and I'm pretty sure that tainted her for me forever.

The one's that deserve it. I really don't get how these people can believe they'll go on the show and get a chance to be taken seriously. Ignorance is entirely all on them at that point, and why I have no qualms about enjoying it. Especially when the fool can man up and take it with a genuine smile and a handshake(I stress genuine smile here, though it's hilarious when they're not genuine and really angry), and maybe come back to the show again. Yes, I can respect people with stupid ideals or whatever, if they can present them with some degree of honor/humility, restores some of my faith in humanity.

However:
I disliked SC when he did the interviews for Daily Show. "Oh, a reporter wants to interview me? OK, show him in." Surprise chaos ensues. Sure, it's nice to see people get their dues, but at the same time, it's a bit of a dirty trick. Made SC come off as a sadist, or vulture.

Glad he got his own show. I don't catch it often any more, but I never dislike it.
 
2012-05-02 11:08:12 PM
Colbert lost control of his interview, and Jon Stewart gave air time (and a veneer of legitimacy) to a fundie-Christian historical revisionist (who invents historical quotes to prove his point) pimping his new book on Thomas Jefferson.

Uncle Pooky: The best Colbert interview ever is when he had some religious scholar on, and then completely decimated the guys point with actual Catholic teachings. The guy could only shoot back with "well, you obviously paid attention in Sunday School."

To which Colbert immediately fired back, "I teach Sunday School, motherf**ker!"

Greatest comeback I've ever seen.


Even Colbert couldn't believe he said it.

omeganuepsilon: moothemagiccow: omeganuepsilon: NateAsbestos: Haha, WOOSH

What do you mean by that? I mean, a phrase like that is worse than attempting to cleverly communicate solely by linking lolcats. Seriously, what is that supposed to mean? Do I win if I post "zoom!"? What kind of game do you mistakenly think you're winning here? Can you even speak english? If you're too lazy to type out a phrase or two, why do you bother posting? Seriously, at least the lolcat had a full concept to it, a functional sentence conveying an actual idea.

Woosh is the sound of a joke going over your head

Well since you bit and he didn't...
What joke? I was told to stop posting. There was a joke there? Sure, it's amusing that it's fashioned as an intervention, but it's not much of a joke, especially when it was my Boobies in the thread. Who sets up an intervention for a supposed "alcoholic" on their first beer ever? WTF is that? That's only asking for further posts in all reality.

What's more, is..... when was the joke command to stop posting on fark EVER heeded? Here's one, DIAF. Go ahead, prove me wrong and go do just that.

It's like delivering a punchline without a set-up. "So the priest says, 'No, son, I meant the prayer' " and acting surprised when there's just crickets, then the creepy guy in the corner(Nate) starts braying like a donkey until he wets his shorts.....

No, it makes no sense. It's not that I missed anything, it's that there was nothing there to begin with, and why, in context, my post rebuking it as a simple white knight was deserved.


I didn't read any of your comments. It was just FYI

No problem. I figured he wouldn't bite so I used it as an excuse to throw it out there.
In all honesty, I'm working out typing on a new keyboard because my nice one died, so any excuse to type on and on I'll take for a day or three.

Just watched it.

At this point I would think everyone would know to not try and control the interview. Colbert will eat you alive.

lol, yeah, she totally lost it towards the end(reminded me of an insanely nervous /giddy teenager), but he was a little frayed. I've never seen anyone push him like that(then again I do miss the show quite a bit, Robin Williams ever been on? that could be fun).

Some of the people talked about above, the zealot types that deserve it, try to talk over him but it really doesn't work. If they're adamant he backs off, lets them speak, then ignores the shiat out of the comment and asks them something else, typically ridiculous.

She was obviously high on something. Fun interview though.

Lots of Xanax, lots of booze. Not a lot of coherence.

eggrolls: Colbert lost control of his interview, and Jon Stewart gave air time (and a veneer of legitimacy) to a fundie-Christian historical revisionist (who invents historical quotes to prove his point) pimping his new book on Thomas Jefferson.

Bad night all around, Comedy Central.


You're talking about David Barton. That's actually his second time on the show. His first time was downright infuriating. Stewart kept calling him out on his historical revisionism and the dude just kept talking in circles.

Except for Colbert, that was 6 minutes of suck. Was her vibrator stuck on high again? Was she high again?

Diane Keaton : Colbert Interview :: omeganuepsilon : this thread
 
2012-05-03 08:15:08 AM
Look, when Colbert is going to interview a guest... before the interview he briefs the guest that he is going to act like the biggest jerk in the entire world.

Keaton was obviously on something (a little -- personally I think she was mildly stoned) and determined that she would totally play along and treat him like he was a despicable person (nudge, nudge).

But the problem was she's not NEARLY as good at improve as Colbert (not many are) and couldn't handle his responses (which were, of course, hilarious) -- the result you see.

And yes, she is obviously VERY fond of him (in a Jane Fonda kinda way)

omeganuepsilon: That people don't get that is beyond me. They can only look on in dismay when their personal savior gets wrangled by how own unsettling attacks and flippancy. Good on her.


omeganuepsilon:

Pfffft. I do see a typo in there, but whatever.


I've highlighted your mistake.

brainlordmesomorph: She was totally coming on to him, almost as much as Jane Fonda did!


He's Memaw catnip.

She was decently-looking when she was young. Kind of like a slightly-less-hot Julianne Moore.

That's the one.

And the BS he was flinging during this appearance alreadyearned its own FARK headline.
