Case in point — Galifianakis called Bradley Cooper recently to apologize after taking a shot at him in his new full-length feature “Between Two Ferns: The Movie.”
“There’s something in the trailer and he’s not even in the movie, but I refer to him as a ‘hot idiot,’” Galifianakis told Variety at the film’s premiere on Monday in Hollywood. “I called him when I saw the trailer…I was like, ‘I called you a ‘hot idiot.’”
Fortunately, Galifianakis recalled, “he just laughed. He doesn’t care. He’s good-natured that way.”
He added with a laugh, “I don’t want to hurt people, but I do want to make them feel weird. There’s a fine line there.
