Actress-turned-filmmaker Lake Bell (Childrens Hospital) stopped by The Daily Show last night to promote her terrific-looking directorial debut, In a World…, which will be released in the U.S. this week. John Oliver quizzed her on the media’s misogynistic treatment of female filmmakers, the “sexy baby voice” epidemic, and her British education — which provided Bell with opportunity to bust out an impressive South East London accent, much to Oliver’s delight.
Watch Lake Bell on The Daily Show with John Stewart below.
In a World… stars Bell alongside Demetri Martin, Ken Marino, Rob Corddry, Nick Offerman, Tig Notaro and more and opens in US theatres tomorrow. Check out the trailer below.
