Christina Applegate on Anchorman 2's Racial Humor

Christina Applegate on Anchorman 2's Racial Humor

The actress talks her new film, hip hop and Kelly Bundy.

Published December 20, 2013

Christina Applegate will always be known as TV's favorite blonde Kelly Bundy (from Married...With Children), but the actress is an accomplished comedian on both the big and small screens. The star of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, who more than holds her own against the film's heavy hitter stars Will Ferrell and Steve Carrell, talks to us about getting fired, her hip hop theme song and much more in our exclusive interview.

Applegate also addresses the film's envelope-pushing, but still not offensive, racial humor, saying the reason it works across audiences is because "the characters are so stupid."

Plus, Carrell and Paul Rudd weigh in on our debate over who would make the best anchorman: Will Smith or Kanye West.

To hear their answers, and for more of our interview with Christina Applegate, watch the video below.  Anchorman 2 is in theaters now.
