Zach Galifianakis Has Said Some Weird Things to Ke$ha and Eliza Dushku

Aside from leaking the potential plot of the next Hangover movie, Zach Galifianakis's Rolling Stone cover story is chockablock with awkward anecdotes that make Galifianakis's dressing-down of January Jones seem like target practice. He notes how "that Ke$ha woman" recently sent him a friendly e-mail inquiring whether he'd want to grab a drink, and when he saw her sitting alone in a bar days later, he walked up to her and said, "Listen, I got your e-mail. Your music is really bad! I don't know who listens to it, but I imagine it's, like, six-year-olds — and it's a bad message.'" The cast and crew of his short-lived Fox serial Tru Calling may have had it worse, though; desperate to get fired, he told star Eliza Dushku that she was "eating her way to cancellation" and closed out table reads by mocking the writers by name and throwing their scripts in the trash. Also included: weirdly uncomfortable encounters with gay celebrities and children! It's a real-life "Between Two Ferns." [RS]
