5 Times the Orange Is the New Black Cast Shut Down Sexist 'Comedian' Interviewer

Speaking of prison, Natasha Lyonne looks like she could shank this fool.

Orange Is the New Blackstars Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes), Natasha Lyonne (Nicky) and Samira Wiley (Poussey) just gave Brazilian "funny" man Rafael Cortez a run for his money on their current press tour. We can only assume he's trying to trounce Ali G... and coming off EVEN worse (as if that were possible).

 

1. "I've never done a press junket before... I'm a virgin, you're my teacher!"

 

Uzo: "No, you don't want me to teach you."

 

2. "Don't you need in the series a guy inside the jail with you doing things that just one guy can be able to do... Do you want to see my muscles?"

 

Uzo: "No."

 

3. "It must be very hard for you, two beautiful women, to do this acting - especially on those days."

 

Natasha: "What, because we're so beautiful?"

 

 

4. "Because sometimes on those days, you will start to be angry, furious, you keep fighting with each other."

 

Natasha: "I feel like [this question is] accidentally maybe a little bit misogynistic. 'You're so beautiful, what's it like having to do all that acting?' I can't tell if that's the question, but if it is, that's insane... Despite the great beauty on the show, everyone is very professional and talented and very capable, so I don't think anyone's thinking about something as meaningless as their beauty at work."

 

5. (Holding up photo of Brazilian murderer Suzane von Richthofen, serving 40 years for killing her parents) "Do you want to invite this beautiful girl, this pretty wonderful girl, to act with you in the jail?... She's very famous and I think she's a professional."

 

Natasha: "Wouldn't it be great if it wasn't just about how pretty [women were]?"

Samira: "We're just actors on the show. We're not involved in hiring."

Here's the interview in full:
