Jameela Jamil and her bizarre ‘The View’ interview
The actress swore live on air and said a number of odd things live on Wednesday’s show
Jameela Jamil knows how to entertain an audience. While conducting an interview on ‘The View’ on Wednesday, the actress was asked about her worst dates, gave hilarious dating advice, and even accidentally dropped the f-bomb to a live audience.
At the end of the interview, Jamil was visibly mortified after swearing, covering her face with her hands, and falling face forwards on the table, as ‘The View’ host Whoopi Goldberg ended the interview.
One of the most awkward interviews on ‘The View’
“I am what you would call a serial erection killer,” the ‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ star told ‘The View’ hosts.
“I’d have my own Netflix documentary series about all the erections I’ve murdered.”
Joy Behar then asked Jamil, “Is it the accent that makes them flop?” Jamil answered, “No, sister, I think it’s generally the personality.”
The British actress was asked questions related to her new podcast ‘Bad Dates’, where she interviews celebrities and friends about their worst dating experiences.
“I wait three months before I kiss or have sex with someone, so it’s like ‘The Hunger Games’ trying to get into my pants,” the actress continued.
“I just don’t want to see your balls until I’m ready,” Jamil said, prompting an uproar of laughter from the audience, and Goldberg smirking to the audience.
“I’m looking at our executive producer, who looks like he’s about to die,” Sunny Hostin said.
The interview continued with more hilarious quips from the actress. When asked for her dating advice, the actress gave an unexpected answer.
“My only dating advice is never, ever — I’ve learned this from the podcast — never, ever trust a fart,” she said with an awkward pause brewing between the hosts and audience.
“Don’t do it… It’s not your friend. You think it’s your friend. It’s not.… It’s your enemy. It becomes something else sometimes, and we just don’t need to get into it because this is morning television. Don’t make me say it.”
When the hosts attempted to steer the interview onto the topic of exercise and mental health, Jamil opened up about her experiences with an eating disorder and an unhealthy relationship with exercise, before swearing live on air.
“I see it as this exclusive club, this elitist place where you have to dress a certain way, and like, f---. Sorry, I apologize for my language.”
“I apologize, children. That is very bad language,” Jamil said.
Goldberg then ended the interview, with Jamil asking: “Is it because I said the F-word?”
Jamil dubbed the interview a “disaster”
Jamil called the interview “a disaster” in her Instagram stories. The interview comes a day after she had a similarly awkward interview on The Today Show where she talked about a “booty call” experience she had, prompting host Al Roker to stare directly into the camera. She shared the moment on social media, captioning the video “Omg this is why I should not be allowed on Live TV.”
