In something like a mash-up of my dreams, Matthew Perry stepped in for Piers Morgan Live last week and invited his chum Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore) along for a video chat. Both on good form, they discussed her recent book and how well she knows it – pretty darn well as it happens – they compared styles and challenges on Parenthood and Gilmore Girls and squeezed a good few seconds from her Oz-like appearance on the big screen. Of course, we already knew she had a big head.
Emily (to Rory): As a child, your mother had an unusually large head.
Lorelai: The best thing about it was that she would tell me constantly. My first complete sentence was ‘Big head want dolly.’
It was a shame Lauren couldn’t be in the studio face-to-face, since the time delay interfered with their natural comedic chemistry (it’s the 21st century for Pete’s sake, how can we not do this yet?) but in case you missed it, here’s the interview on Youtube. Sit back, enjoy and bathe in their reflected loveliness.
