O’Dowd also exposed he received concerned at the request of close close friend and “Bridesmaids” co-star Kristen Wiig and only participated since he presumed it was “a charity matter.”
“I’ll do anything at all Kristen asks me to do so, of program, we just did it,” he said. “It took five minutes, didn’t assume about it. I presumed it was for kids.”
O’Dowd also attributed the misstep to “that to start with wave of imaginative diarrhea” that occurred at the start off of the pandemic.
