Who ya gonna call for inside scoop on the new Ghostbusters reboot? Not Kate McKinnon, apparently.
“I've seen truly zero [of the movie],” the Saturday Night Live star told ET of the upcoming film, in which she straps on her Proton Pack alongside SNL co-star Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, and Melissa McCarthy. “There is not any stuff available yet, but if there were, I wouldn't want to watch it, because I don't like to watch myself.”
The SNL chameleon -- whose best-known impressions range from Justin Bieber to German chancellor Angela Merkel -- says she “rarely” watches her stellar performances on the sketch show after it airs, but is confident that the all-female remake of the iconic 1984 sci-fi comedy will be just as hilarious.
“I've heard that it's great so I'll just go with that,” she added. “I know it's going to be a great movie.”
McKinnon and Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani are hosting the Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, and the two flexed their comedic muscles ahead of the big show, letting ET in on their preparation secrets.
“For me it's mostly been hard physical labor and training,” McKinnon deadpanned. “Lots of crossfit-type stuff, but with way bigger weights...And I've been swimming away from sharks which has been a good exercise.”
“She helped me moved also, that was part of her training,” Nanjiani added. “I was like, ‘Ok, I'm not moving,’ so she just moved stuff from upstairs to downstairs.”
The pair also revealed that nothing is off limits at Saturday’s show. Well, almost nothing.
“I'm not doing full frontal,” McKinnon admitted, though her co-host had other ideas.
“I'm doing full ‘backtal,’” Nanjiani said with a laugh. “You're going to see all of my back area.”
So, once again, who’s McKinnon gonna call? “My mom,” she joked. “I love you, mom!”
The Film Independent Spirit Awards airs live on Saturday Feb. 27 at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT on IFC.
