SMH. Who knew Danny McBride was such a dog lover?
Our friends over at GQ had an “Awkward Family Photos” photoshoot with Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride we had to share.
Here’s the details:
Bridesmaids scene-stealer Maya Rudolph and redneck-comedy king Danny McBride appear in a photo shoot inspired by the legendary website “Awkward Family Photos” for GQ’s June Comedy issue. The two stars have been busy working on their highly-anticipated summer movies (Rudolph in The Way, Way Back and McBride in This Is The End), but made time to adopt six fake families, throw on some matching outfits, and sit for some of the most delightfully awkward family photos ever captured.
Here are the excerpts from their interview:
Danny McBride: One of my friends sent me some [casting-call] link that said, “Looking for Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride look-alikes as children,” and they were like, “What the fuck is this?” It said something about fuzz on their faces being a plus.
Maya Rudolph: With the child quotient, we were thinking we’d have to be on our best behavior. But then one of our daughters—cherubic face, 11 years old—started singing along to the filthiest, dirtiest southern rap.
Danny McBride: We asked one of the girls in the Christmas picture if she still believed in Santa Claus.
Maya Rudolph: Everyone’s facing the camera, and she just whips around and is like: “Do you still believe in God?” Didn’t miss a beat.
