The Sisterhood of the Press Tour

Ah the dreaded press tour. By most actors and actresses, it is the most annoying part of making a major studio film. Press tours vary, but usually they ramp up the two weeks before the films box office release, meaning celebrities are forced to be in a room with the idiots they wrapped filming with months ago and discuss various things like the process of making the movie, their personal lives and those lovely personal anecdotes they all practice before meeting Jay Leno. Personally, I love watching actresses wax moronic on news programs about how thrilling it was “just working with these people” and how “exciting the process” was. I love the interviews even more when they are on those half-ass morning shows only Fox truly knows how to produce, which is why Good Day LA is MY FAVORITE MORNING SHOW EVER! They use to rebroadcast here at noon, but alas they shelved the idea and with it broke my heart. Almost like a real life version of “Anchorman”, GMLA is always able to lower the level of celebrity interviews just enough to make everything cringe worthy and their chat with the girls from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 was no different. Last week, America Ferrera and Blake Lively, half of the cast, stopped by to push their movie on the public, when the interviewer went all OMG over Gossip Girl. While I get the fact that GG is a major hit and will most likely draw even bigger ratings the second season, that shit is for another interview at another time. And I am not the only one who thinks this way, please check out said clip, courtesy of The Soup on E! and see what America Ferrera thinks about her cast mate Blake and the gushing about the new season of Gossip Girl.
