Joanna Newsom and Andy Samberg’s Meet-Cute Involved the Sweetest Use of the C-Word You’ve Ever Heard

How did Joanna Newsom, an anthropomorphic encyclopedia, meet her husband, funnyman Andy Samberg? As Newsom told her pal Seth Meyers Wednesday, it all had to do with an old Lonely Island sketch. She was a huge fan of the trio’s “Just 2 Guyz,” made in their pre-SNL days, which featured Samberg in a walk-on role as a dude named Steve, memorably described in the sketch as, well, think of the worst word you can call a woman. “When I met him, he was kind of shy,” she told Meyers. “I said, ‘Oh my God, you’re the c–t! You’re Steve the c–t!’ He always says he saw like, heart bubbles.” Mazel for them! You should probably not try this on your crush.
