Hey, Daniel Day-Lewis, Busy Philipps Really Wants a Photo With You
The ‘Cougar Town’ star is willing to abuse her powers as the SAG Awards Social Media Ambassador for a moment with the ‘Lincoln’ actor.
Busy Philipps is totally excited to blow up this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards on Twitter. She’s this year’s Social Media Ambassador and she’s taking the role very seriously. But, there may be one person that will test the actress’ professionalism.
The pregnant actress isn’t aiming to put off the Lincoln actor, who will be presenting an award at the ceremony. It’s just the fan’s heart wants what it wants.
“I love him so much and respect him so deeply and I think it would be incredible to stalk him and make him take a Twitpic with me,” the 33-year-old says.
“At first, I was like, he’s the one person I’m not even going to look at in the eye. But now, I think, maybe, as a challenge to myself, I should try to find him and just ask, ‘I’m the social media ambassador for the SAG Awards, would you please take a picture with me, that I can post online?’”
“I remember, Michelle [Williams] and I took a picture with Regina King last year, because Regina came right up to us and was like, ‘I’m the Social Media Ambassador. You girls are so cute. Will you take a picture with me?’ And she had her son take the picture. And I remember, at the time, I was like, ‘Social Media Ambassador. What a cool job. I wonder how someone gets that.’ And now, I know. They ask you.”
Cougar Town airs Tuesdays at 10PM on TBS.
The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Award ceremony will air live on TNT and TBS on Sunday at 8PM ET/ 5 PM PT from the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles.
