We’ll be seeing a lot of him this Sunday, so we figured this item about Ryan Seacrest being a Red Carpet wind-up robot doll when interviewing celebrities during awards ceremonies was particularly apt. He’s basically programmed to say “fantastic!” and “great!” and “awesome!” in 10-15 second intervals.
In an interview with UK’s Star he wasn’t anywhere near designer gowns, red carpets or cameras so he could be a bit more truthful when asked if he lies to celebrities:
“Yes – I live in Hollywood, I work for E! Have I ever lied on the red carpet – erm, yes, I have! Sometimes I find myself saying: ‘That looks…’ and sometimes
‘great’ comes out before I can process I’ve said it, or ‘fantastic’. And
then I watch it back – and it does look different on television – and
think that was not a ‘great’, that was a ‘less than great’.”
And he wonders why Angelina Jolie suddenly needs to be somewhere else whenever Ryan lunges at her with his microphone.
