Andy Cohen and Ralph Fiennes debate the phrase in the popular children’s book Corduroy: “It freaks me out!”










He is well known for having long conversations with various celebrities on his talk show, Watch What Happens Live!

And on Friday, Andy Cohen showed he was able to connect with his guests on a more personal level when he shared several videos with actor Ralph Fiennes on his Instagram story.

The 53-year-old media personality and 59-year-old actor got close to expressions from the popular children’s book Corduroy, and the performer graciously explained one of them to the show’s host.

At the start of the clips, Cohen noted that he underlined a specific phrase from the book that confused many of his fans.

He said: “I’ve had a lot of comments from a lot of people saying, oh, it has to be an English phrase, like in the UK, ‘touring’.

The show host then expressed that “only one person can solve this problem, master of the English language”, before introducing Fiennes, whom he described as a lord.

When the actor pointed out that he wasn’t, in fact, a lord, Cohen was quick to point out that “you should be.”

The interpreter then read the page containing the phrase and concluded that it would not generally be used in his country of origin.

Fiennes specifically said: “I don’t think we would say that in England…it feels weird to me.”

Cohen said enthusiastically that he and his friend understood the phrase was unlikely to be used in Britain.

He remarked that ‘we solved it, it’s not a fancy English term, Lord Voldemort, thank you.’

Verdict: The interpreter then read the page containing the phrase and concluded that it would not generally be used in his country of origin.

When Fiennes made a suspicious face at the camera, the talk show host immediately said, “Oh no, I said his name.”

Cohen became aware of the line when he took a survey about the origin of the phrase after reading the book to his son, Benjamin.

The reality TV personality first announced he was becoming a father during a 2018 episode of Watch What Happens Live!
