Andy Samberg in Glamour magazine, February 2011

This interview has been painstakingly typed out from Rayanna Janae over at - Go check her shtuff out!!! With one further ado...



Glamour: So what was it like working with the models on the shoot?

Andy: They were lovely. I felt bad for them because it was chilly. I felt like a mother hen protecting her eggs.

Glamour: You must have been pretty cold yourself. Tell us about the shorts.

A: I was petitioning for shorter. These were the shortest shorts we had, so I just rocked 'em.

G: How do you feel about tight jeans on women?

A: I'm a fan. My high school years were during the nineties, and me and my friends often talk about how we got ripped off, because every generation but our had a tight-jean phase. We had the TLC, where the ladies were wearing baggy Girbauds and loose overalls with one strap. Which, you know, is not without its charms. But we certainly never got that supertight, high cut short, Dazed and Confused look.

G: You've joked that you're a "text whore." What's the best and worst thing about texting in relationships?

Andy: The best thing is you're able to maintain a long-distance relationship much more hands on. Without getting into too much detail, that has definitely come in handy in my life. The worst is texting with someone who doesn't have the text "tone" as you. You gotta build your own text language together.

Part 1 here:

Glamour: How do you get your hair to do the things it does?

Andy: I've been training it since high school, so now each hair is its own little organism. I can do specific sweeps with my hand.

Glamour: What is the sexiest thing a woman can do?

Andy: Um, I guess sleep with me? I consider it a very sexy thing if a woman has sex with me.

G: What's the sexiest thing a woman can wear?

A: Whatever Phoebe Cates was wearing in Gremlins. She had kind of a sweater beret situation.

G: You're friends with Justin Timberlake. What kind of attention do you get from girls when you're out with him?

A: I could count the times I've been out with him on one hand. We hang out plenty of times when we're working on stuff, but he gets plenty of attention.

Glamour: When you're not out with him, do you call each other?

Andy: We Skype each other constantly before we go out for an evening to make sure the other one thinks the other one has a good outfit on or something. He's always Skyping me and asking if I think he looks good in his jeans. [Laughs]

G: Who is the funniest woman you've ever met?

A: That's a tough one. I've worked with arguably some of the funniest woman of all time -- Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig -- that's an incredible list there.

Part 2 from here:

Glamour: What is the sexiest thing a woman can say?

Andy: [Laughs] God, I'm so bad with that. I would say, first of, never once in my life have I used the word sexy. So probably like, "The Jerk is my favorite movie," something like that.

Glamour: What;s the sexiest thing you do, and when do you feel the sexiest?

Andy: I have never done a sexy thing, and I have never felt sexy. [Laughs.] This conversation is the most times I've said sexy in my entire life.

Glamour: You don't need to say it again for four more years.

Andy: Oh no, I'm going to say it constantly now. But I don't truly believe that men can be sexy. The attempt of sexiness on a man's part always ends in lameness.

G: If we spent the night at your house, what might we notice?

A: Um...probably my exact replica of the Sistine Chapel that I have done on my ceiling?

Glamour: I think we're all going to have to spend the night at your house now, because that sounds spectacular.

Andy: Well, tell everyone they're invited. We'll have a big slumber party. ~~

it just felt like andy didn't answer most of the questions honestly and from the heart. instead he had to make a joke every time. i understand that that's his thing being a comedian and all but it would have been nice to know something more about him. now after reading this all i know is that he's a funny silly guy... i'm a little sad i have to say

Grow up and call James Lipton if you want Andy to show his soul.

Anony 3,

Yes, Andy usually tries to answer jokingly. Sometimes he'll answer honestly (he does this on talk shows). But usually he tries to think of a way to answer with a joke. There are several reasons for this, but I think the first is expectations. It's strange. People expect him to give great or interesting answers. And they expect him to be hilarious all the time. So he (like many comedians) has found that if he turns it on and answers with jokes, then taht meets expectations well. But if he gets vulnerable and honest (as some comedians have) then he gets judged more. So it's almost like a defensive mechanism that comedians use. Other more traditional actors "talk their craft" more, almost like politicians do, where their guard is bringing it back to their work as actors and actresses (because they're not expected to be funny). It's really quite interesting. Andy tries to make the person asking the questions laugh. It's like a game he plays with himself, whether or not he can get them on the first question or how long it takes for him to get them.

Dear everybody,

Andy answers jokingly definitely because that's just the way he is, but also definitely because he has no interest in publicizing his personal thoughts. I guess I sort of came to that conclusion one day when I became curious as to what sort of music, particularly bands, he liked. I found nothing. So I'm thinking if this dude won't even talk about his favorite music... let alone what he thinks is the sexiest thing a lady can do.

But you got to admit - the sexiest thing a woman can do? Um, sleep with me? - that was super cool and funny. The interviewer must have felt like an idiot.

Btw, what's Andy doing in Glamour, man?? Andy, are you really that desperate? Love you anyway.
