In a recent episode of the “SmartLess” podcast, actor Jason Bateman revealed that he had a “meltdown” while attempting to record an episode with fellow actor Matthew McConaughey. The incident, which took place during a previous attempt to interview McConaughey, was shared by Bateman and his co-hosts, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes.

“SmartLess” is a podcast where the three hosts take turns selecting a mystery celebrity guest each week. On the latest episode, McConaughey joined the trio to discuss his new book. However, before the interview could begin, the hosts reminisced about their first failed attempt to record with McConaughey, which was due to Bateman’s computer issues.

Arnett played an audio recording of Bateman’s reaction to the technical difficulties, in which Bateman can be heard expressing frustration and even contemplating canceling the interview. McConaughey’s laughter in response seemed to further irritate Bateman. It should be noted that according to the show’s premise, Bateman was unaware that McConaughey was the scheduled guest for that particular episode.

In the audio, McConaughey humorously mimicked Bateman’s meltdown, joking about a series of bizarre technical problems. Listening back to the clip on the podcast, Bateman admitted, “It’s not one of my prouder moments.”

Recalling the incident, Bateman described his frustration and anger at the time, feeling like he was “blowing it” while being unaware of the guest’s identity. He also expressed gratitude to McConaughey for returning to the podcast after the unfortunate incident.

The “SmartLess” podcast has gained popularity for its entertaining conversations with various celebrity guests. Despite initial setbacks, Bateman, Arnett, and Hayes continue to bring engaging content to their audience.

As both actors continue to pursue their respective projects, Bateman’s “SmartLess” podcast and McConaughey’s new book, fans can eagerly anticipate more candid and entertaining discussions from the “SmartLess” trio.
