Jessica Alba on 'SportsCenter' and other awkward celebrity promotional appearances

Posted on


Ff2_lSo last night I’m flipping channels and catch Jessica Alba on SportsCenter, sitting in the “Budweiser Hot Seat,” answering questions like, “Who is the bigger NBA fan, you or Eva Longoria?” and claiming that she never said that she hopes directors will be able to see past “my hotness” (because my hotness is a phrase she would never use). Is this a fantastic way to promote Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (pictured) to men, or just awkward? I’ll say both.

It got me wondering what other “great” promotional appearances I almost missed. In exchange for whatever you post below, I giddily offer this clip of Guardian costars Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher being forced to read a hospital menu — in German. Costner plays along longer than you’d expect, but Kutcher emerges the crowd favorite.
