Sarah Paulson and Cate Blanchett have been doing promo for Ocean’s 8 together, and it looks like it’s finally broken them.
The two Oscar and Emmy-winning stars were booked on the Today Show yesterday (June 5) to talk about their roles in the latest installment in the heist franchise. And talk they did — a lot, and mostly to each other.
Now, don’t get us wrong; we love it when an interview goes off-script. Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling provided a classic in the genre when they were promoting Blade Runner 2049 last year, but Sarah and Cate may have actually out-done them.
The interview swerves off topic numerous times, with Cate sitting on Sarah’s lap and Sarah making fun of Cate for not winning an Oscar for Carol, until hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb are left in fits of laughter.
We predict you will be too:
Get the waterproof mascara because @hodakotb could not stop crying from laughing during her interview with @MsSarahPaulson & Cate Blanchett (and even had to call in @savannahguthrie for help)! #Oceans8 pic.twitter.com/eKyd28dzO8

The constant rounds of promotional interviews in the run-up to a movie opening can often be gruelling and repetitive, so it’s always fun to see a couple of stars let rip.
It’s clear the two women are very fond of each other, having also starred together in Carol in 2015. As with the original Ocean’s 11 cast, Ocean’s 8‘s all-female cast seem to be having a ball together, with Cate, Sarah, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Awkwafina and even Rihanna popping up at the movie’s world premiere in New York last night (June 5).
Their chemistry is obvious, but whether it transfers to the big screen remains to be seen.
