Zach Galifianakis’s confession at Toronto premiere of It’s Kind of a Funny Story

In USA Today, Claudia Puig gets the scoop on the Zach attack at Toronoto premiere of It's Kind of a Funny Story. Puig writes, “Gesturing to his ultra-slender co-star Emma Roberts, dressed in a fitted blush-colored off the shoulder dress, the bearded actor bellowed: "Emma and I would like to announce our engagement. She is six months pregnant--though you'd never know. It was at the wrap party..."” Of course, it was all a joke, but the humor seemed to be part and parcel of the Toronto premiere. As Puig concludes:

Galifianakis eagerly stepped to the front of the stage, The Hangover star took a dramatic bow and seemed about to launch into some sort of windy soliloquoy: "I got my start in theatre..." He was met with laughter and applause, which mirrored the audience's exuberant reaction to the film. After Gilchrist, Galifianakis, Roberts and their co-stars perform their rendition of "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie, the movie audience burst into applause.
