People Are Obsessed With Rebecca Ferguson's Hilarious Press Tour For "Dune: Part Two" After Her Interviews Keep Going Viral

It's no secret that Dune: Part Two is the biggest movie of 2024 so far. The movie has already hit $200 million in the global box office in just a week since its release, with Denis Villeneuve's sequel being hailed as one of the best sci-fi films ever.

Of course, aside from the stunning visual work and the monumental achievement of adapting Frank Herbert's novel, the actors who make up the incredible cast is something everyone loves.

Led by Timothée Chalamet, the Dune: Part Two cast is, frankly, stacked with Zendaya, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, and more playing pivotal roles in the franchise.

With so many amazing actors in one movie, it's no wonder that the press tour for Dune: Part Two was all anyone could talk about. From Zendaya's stunning red carpet looks to interviews with the cast, people could not get enough.

And lately, there's one cast member in particular who is praised for their "hilarious and charming" press tour moments, and that would be Rebecca Ferguson.

No stranger to having fun on press tours, every interview Rebecca has done for Dune: Part Two the internet loves, with every sound bite seemingly funnier and more honest than the last.

First, it all started when Rebecca candidly called out a previous "absolute idiot of a costar" who screamed at her while they were filming a movie.

She recalled, "This human being was being so insecure and angry because this person couldn’t get the scenes out. I think I was so vulnerable and uncomfortable that I got screamed at. But because this person was number one on a call sheet, there was no safety net for me. So no one had my back. And I would cry walking off set."

Rebecca said the moment really taught her to stand up for herself on set.

As soon as the clip surfaced online, everyone — and I mean, everyone — was trying to figure out which of her possible previous costars could've been the one to treat her badly because, honestly, we were all ready to go to war for this absolute ray of sunshine.

Like, the internet was in such an uproar over who could've possibly hurt Rebecca that Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt spoke out assuring everyone that it was not them.

There was her iconic appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where she revealed that no, she still has not read Dune.

Or how she said she likes a bit of awkwardness, and recalled a moment when she was asked by a male interviewer what it's like working with all of these legendary male actors, and she said something along the lines of, "I don't care that you have a dick."

And overall, people were just obsessed with how she turned an appearance on a late night talk show into something resembling a brilliant and smooth stand-up comedy routine.

Then, in another interview, Rebecca told this hilarious story about how her daughter once thought a photo of Timothée Chalamet on a, well, kind of dirty Willy Wonka-themed Valentine's Day card was her dad because he looks like Rebecca's husband.

Someone even found the card she was talking about.

Here's a photo of Rebecca and her husband, Rory St. Clair Gainer, so like, I get it. Someone on Twitter said it best, "I googled her husband after seeing this and they might be the hottest couple ever."

And I was also just loving on the Dune: Part Two press tour how Florence was adorably babysitting Rebecca, like in this clip where she made sure Rebecca was heading to do a cast photo at the NYC premiere, and reminded her that she is, you know, a lead in the movie.

Or, even funnier, when Rebecca wanted to do the infamous sandwalk when she and Flo entered for an interview, and Flo was like, "Maybe we don't?" LOL.

Rebecca also revealed in another red carpet interview that she asked Austin Butler if that's his real voice.

And it's not just the Dune: Part Two press tour, Rebecca has always been the best part of interviews for years.

Anyway, now it's my duty to tell you to go watch Rebecca in The White Queen and Silo because they are two of my favorite shows and some of my favorite performances from her. Okay, bye.
