Paul Feig Thinks Martinis Have Gotten Too Big

LAS VEGAS, NV - APRIL 18:  Director Paul Feig arrives at a Twentieth Century Fox presentation to promote the upcoming film "The Heat" at Caesars Palace during CinemaCon, the official convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners, on April 18, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Heat director/Mexican food enthusiast Paul Feig did a Grub Street Diet this week. In between recounting delicious gluten-free meals, he found time to get on a soapbox about drink size. He had back-to-back drink meetings, which meant two drinks. Upon receiving the second one:

"The Hendricks martini was so incredibly gigantic, too big. I have an issue with the giant martinis that seem to be around in bars that aren't quite as cool as they should be. It's a ten-ounce martini! You're literally drinking a third of a bottle of gin! You're not going to survive that. I walked out of there like Hi-yo! with my head spinning."

So, if you see Paul out at a bar, you should totally ask him for half his martini.
