This may be the worst Harry Styles impression ever . . . and the most hilarious. Jimmy Fallon sat down with Kristen Wiig who decided to give up her interview time to play the British pop star (except she didn’t know he was British).
Well, Kristen Wiig is definitely not a Directioner. She headed onto The Tonight Show to do a stellar interview with Jimmy Fallon… except she took on the role of Harry Styles. Watch the hysterical clip here.
Kristen Wiig’s Harry Styles Impression
Instead of coming out as herself, the SNL alum joined her friend Jimmy on The Tonight Show as Harry — but she knew nothing about him. Right away, Jimmy called her out on the most obvious flaw — she didn’t have a British accent.
“Your accent is different in person. I thought you’d have more of an accent,” Jimmy said. “I thought you’d have more of accent because, you know, you’re not from America.”
“No?” she asked him, which was absolutely hilarious. They decided they were going to say the country name together. Of course, Jimmy said England while Kristen played along but had no idea.
Kristen Wiig Knows Nothing About One Direction
I’ve got to say the best part of the whole thing was that the actress couldn’t keep a straight face. During the “Rapid Fire Round,” Jimmy asked a bunch of questions as a lightening round and the first was “Favorite Food?”
She answered “carnitas,” which means pork . . . in Spanish. Literally, Jimmy nor Kristen could stop laughing. At the end of the interview, Jimmy asked her to sing the band’s biggest song, in which she guessed “Story of My Life.” Honestly, we were shocked she even knew a title of one song!
Of course, he was talking about “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful.” So, she read the lyrics on cue cards and clearly had never heard it before. Not to worry, Jimmy joined in and helped her out.
It was so funny! Watch the clip here and let us know what you thought — did you laugh or did you feel like she should have done her research first?
