Judd Apatow, Mad Men’s Rich Sommer, More Share Their Grossest New York Moments At Tribeca

There are many ways to tell whether you are truly a New Yorker or just one of the millions just stopping through — and I’ve always contended that you really know you’ve arrived when you witness someone taking a crap in the middle of the street. We are not alone in this. And that’s why VH1 News asked the glamorous stars, from NYC and Hollywood alike, attending the Tribeca Film Festival for the past two weeks to share their grossest New York moment. Just so we know where they stand.

“I one day saw the entire journey of a turd,” Mad Men star Rich Sommer said. “I was walking through Union Square and saw a man creating it, and then I walked by later in the day and it was still there, and then I walked by like four hours later and it was gone.”

Malin Akerman defines gross a little differently. “For those New Yorkers that have never been to the Box…” she began, talking about the risque burlesque club. “If you want to call it ‘burlesque’ — I have seen some of the grossest things ever at the Box.”

Judd Apatow has scary, rather than disgusting memories of his childhood in the city. “I kind of remember almost getting robbed when I was a kid on 8th Avenue, but now 8th Avenue is like the Disney store,” he said.

Mad Men Cast Sums Up The New Season In One Word … Amazeballs?

It’s here! The return of Mad Men after two long years is practically being hailed as television’s second coming, and VH1 News was there at the premiere to get the inside scoop from the cast. Fans of the show know that the last season ended with one of the biggest WTF cliff-hangers of all time. So what can we expect from season five? We asked the stars to sum up the new series in one word, and their answers were everything we could hope for!

“Shocking. Surprising. Some sort of  ‘S’  word,” said Jon Hamm, while Jared Harris went straight to the heart of the matter by offering “amazeballs.” Well said, sir! January Jones got surprisingly shy when asked to sum up season five. “I can’t! If I think of one word, I feel like it’ll give it away,” she laughed. But eventually she settled on “suspense.” But the final word belongs to John Slattery, who plays office renegade Roger Sterling. “Two words … surprising and satisfying.” Technically he broke the rules, but we’ll take it.
