Paul Giamatti & Michael Sheen Have a Fight Hard to Understand - #LateLateLondon

  • Published: 21 June 2019
  • After Paul Giamatti talks about his portrayal of Chuck Rhoades in Billions, which included a dive into the S&M world and a passionate rant in Italian, a language he does not speak, James challenges Paul and Michael Sheen to have an argument in languages neither of them speak, and things escalate quickly. And Reggie has a question for Paul and Michael.

      Thanks, Michael, for refusing to treat Russian like placeholder gibberish the way they do in Hollywood <3

                One must watch this video twice to get the full experience. Upon the first viewing, one must focus solely on Paul Giamatti talking of his endeavours in the S & M lifestyle. Second viewing, one must watch Michael Sheen react to Paul Giamatti talking of his endeavours in the S & M lifestyle. It’s truly an experience, let me tell you.

                              The only reason these two legends never had oscars is probably they are not as handsome as some of the winners.

                                  The non verbal communication and " energy" of the interaction is easily understood.Even if they didn't say anything.

It's far from dying, since you have native 1st speakers. Irish & Scottish are in a worse condition I think. Also, when a Welsh person say 'I don't speak' it might not be a clear case: as the schools teaches you the language, and then stops- so if they don't use it- they forget. For someone like that to go back & learn as an adult is easier to be fluent in under a year (Michael might at the casp, in terms of age, when the welsh goverment started this schools reform).

Say em slowly and separately over and over. And your mind will be trained to eventually say it as it's meant to be said, as a sentence. Learning its translation in English and Remembering that is far more difficult. Imo anyway.

Btw, it's easy to say once yous see it as a sentence and not a single word. People try to rush it's pronouncition if they see it a single word. Why don't you try it?! 😉

I'm not a fan of that franchise tbh, but he was right in what he was saying. And to assume he intended otherwise, I mean, we don't know him lol

He was playing a silly, crazy, baddie- wigs & red contact lenses, must have fun & less 'serious acting'.
