Last year, in the New York Times review of Jupiter Ascending, critic Manohla Dargis described the film as “a big, woozy, spacey fairy tale with a science-fiction exoskeleton and a core of pure mush.” Behind the strength of such glowing reviews, few would ultimately go see the movie, and in the years since its release, even fewer can actually describe the film’s plot—including its star, Mila Kunis.
On Monday night, the Late Late Show’s James Corden devised a devious, truth-or-dare-style game in which Kunis and Christina Applegate could either answer a question or take a bite of an array of stomach-churning foods.
When it came time for Kunis’ turn, Corden asked the actress what should have been a simple question.
“Can you explain the plot of the movie you were in, Jupiter Ascending, and as a secondary question, then explain why you did it?” Corden asked. “Can you explain the plot?”
Kunis did her best (“You know, it’s about human desire to...uhh…OK…”), but hastily reached for the massive cow’s tongue sitting in front of her.
“Look away!” she pleads with Appleton before taking a bit of the tongue to cheers from the crowd.
