There are two things that will always make Chelsea Handler’s heart skip a beat: hearing the words “Can I top up your drink ma’am?” and being given an opportunity to publicly drag Angelina Jolie. And that’s just what she did during an appearance last night’s Watch What Happens Live! in Los Angeles.
An audience member named Eric, or as Chelsea knows him – “blessed angel sent from petty bitch heaven” – asked her what she would say to Angelina if they were stuck in an elevator. Chelsea probably had the FCC nervous that she was about to release two full minutes worth of expletives. But Chelsea said that she wouldn’t say a thing.
“I would just…I would just look up. Exactly what people do in elevators, you know when you fake look at the number because you just don’t want to make eye contact? That would be exactly the elevator ride. And then I’d go, ‘Hey!’ as I walked out.”
If Hell freezes over and Chelsea does one day find herself riding an elevator with her favorite “fucking lunatic,” I hope she’s prepared in the event her plan backfires. I can only imagine how many drinks she’ll need if Angelina chases after her and offers an autograph. “I know you were too nervous to ask. Now, who should I make this out to?”
Here’s Chelsea at the Netflix Comedy Panel For Your Consideration event in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.
