How much do we love Michael Cera? From Arrested Development to Juno and our favorite, Superbad, the nerdy-hipster boy wonder can do no wrong. His latest Playboy article made us fall in love with him a tad more. We’re preparing to watch him in his new film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (which also stars Anna Kendrick) which he describes as, “I would say this movie is both a nerd and a nonnerd’s dream come true. For the nerds there are lots of Nintendo references and sound effects, and the nonnerds will enjoy making fun of all the nerds in the theater exploding with joy and afterward will possibly beat them all up.”
The actor spoke about his infamous “Guido makeover” by Pauly D from the Jersey Shore cast.“Actually, it was one of the most pleasant days I’ve had in a long time.” he said of his hair-gelling experience, adding, “We got drunk and laughed and danced and got in a hot tub and ate pizza. It was sort of like my eighth birthday party.” When asked about the worst pick-up line he’s ever used he deadpanned, “Hey, lady, those are some sexy-a** extensions. I guess you won’t mind if I extend to you a personal invitation to party with me one-on-one in a scary motel room.”
It got even better when he spoke about losing his virginity. Cera related, “To be honest I don’t remember too much about it. All I remember is I had been awake for almost 86 hours, I was on the roof of a Public Storage building in what seemed to be a freezing rainstorm, and Crispin Glover was there with a disposable camera he kept winding even though it had clearly run out of exposures. My memory of it has fogged as time has gone by, and I’ve pushed it out of my mind, though I do seem to remember something about a plastic Academy Award for best grandson being involved. You might say it was my first brush with the finer side of show business.” He kept a straight face through out. Ok we know, he might come off as too clever-by-half. Look at it like this, he isn’t as annoying as the other hipster lot who are just, plain,well, annoying. As Cera fans, we’re lapping it up!
