Series 16, Episode 15 - Ben Stiller, Charlotte Uhlenbroek, Ewan McGregor, Eminem
In his first ever British TV interview, Eminem joins Jonathan Ross. He talks candidly about dissing celebs (Sarah Palin, Jessica Simpson, Amy Winehouse) on current single We Made You: "These aren't personal attacks, it's like picking names out of a hat... (but) Sarah Palin, I want to nail her!"
He also discusses his battle with addiction: "I just wasn't taking care of myself, at times I wanted to just give it up, I was in a dark place. I wanted to pull back from the spotlight to reassess my whole career... I got sober (but) it was pretty rough. A couple of years were bad for me."
And about fighting colour prejudice: "It wasn't easy, I was pulled off stage many times but you keep at it, I had my doubts but this was all I had."
Also joining Jonathan is Ben Stiller, who confirms there will be a new Zoolander movie and a sequel to Meet The Fockers: "It's a few years later, we have kids... possibly Meet The Little Fockers."
Ewan McGregor defends Angels And Demons against Vatican criticism: "I think it's a hangover... The Vatican was upset with Dan Brown's book The Da Vinci Code... I don't think there's any element of anti-Catholicism in the film."
And confirms he's planning a sequel to Long Way Down, and that he's left the UK: "I moved to the States... I thought I'd always live here but now I come back as a visitor."
Also appearing this week is zoologist and TV presenter Charlotte Uhlenbroek.
