Every now and again I’ll make jokes about how doing acting stuff is so easy a Hilton can do it, but I take it all back. Acting is the hardest job in the entire world and now I know that thanks to future Emmy winner Ryan Lochte.
Access Hollywood showed a clip of Ryan “acting” in an upcoming episode of 90210 and his performance is so riveting that rocks are jealous, because they wish they could be that stiff and emotionless. But the thing that really changed my mind about acting was the answer that dribbled out of Ryan’s mouth when Access Hollywood’s Laura Saltman (whose eyeballs keep drifting down to his nipples) asked him, “What was the hardest part for you about it?” Ryan’s answer is the same answer Anthony Hopkins gave when he was asked the same question on Inside the Actors Studio:
“Memorizing lines and trying to, like, say ‘em and still, like, do movement and all that. That was hard.”
I didn’t think it was possible to love Ryan Lochte more, but I do. I mean, Ryan said in so many words that walking and talking at the same time is hard.
