What would you ask Ben Mendelsohn?
- Dec 7 '16
Larry King: Given your British roots, do you watch The Great British Bake Off? I've interviewed her. She's an amazing woman.
Rebecca Hall: Mary Berry?
Larry King: Yeah.
Rebecca Hall: You have?
Larry King: Oh, and it was-
Rebecca Hall: I'm heartbroken about her. Heartbroken.
Larry King: She doesn't want to go to Channel Four.
Rebecca Hall: I know.
Larry King: It's moving from BBC to Channel Four.
Rebecca Hall: I know all about this. I forced, I'm married to an American and I forced him to watch the Bake Off as an example, to try to explain to him some of the more, I guess, the kind of, you know, charmingly twee side of British culture. And like to explain to him what bunting and cake and scones and biscuits was-
Larry King: That's their biggest show.
Rebecca Hall: And he became obsessed with it. So we're both avid watchers of Bake Off.
Larry King: So Channel Four took the show, right?
Rebecca Hall: I know. I don't really know. Without Mel and Sue, as well. No Mel and Sue, no Mary Berry. I'm not really sure-
Larry King: So how's it going to work without them?
Rebecca Hall: Frankly I'm, I'm at a loss. I don't know how you can replace Mary Berry with anyone. Unless it's Judi Dench or the Queen, maybe. That's my top picks.
Larry King: She's quite a lady. I had fun with her.
Rebecca Hall: She's great.
Larry King: Hard to believe.
