MTV Movie Awards Host Aziz Ansari Has a Goal–Touch Rob’s Hair (lol)
The show’s love of celebrity stunts as well as its commercial impulses (call it the anti-Oscars) are something that is hardly lost on this year’s host, Aziz Ansari. To familiarize himself with the audience who voted for “The Hangover,” “Avatar” and “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” as last year’s greatest film fare, he took on the task of watching all the films in the popular vampire franchise — and live-tweeting the endeavor.
“I’m trying to really become one with the audience, so I just put a poster of Robert Pattinson up on my ceiling to get into the head of the audience,” he joked on a conference call Wednesday afternoon. “I haven’t been writing any jokes or filming shorts. I’ve just been looking at the poster and hopefully that will get me ready for June 6.”
Next month at Hollywood’s Gibson Amphitheatre, Ansari — who will appear in the upcoming Russell Brand comedy “Get Him to the Greek” — also kidded that his goal was to “maybe touch Robert Pattinson’s hair” or “get a photo with Taylor Lautner’s abs.”
