Given the fact that the impeccably coiffed folks from MTV's [url id="http://www.mtv.com/shows/jersey_shore/series.jhtml"]"Jersey Shore"[/url] are virtually everywhere these days, it's hard to imagine that anyone isn't on a first-name basis with the castmembers. But it turns out that some actors and filmmakers simply don't budget enough time into their superstar schedules to keep tabs on Snooki, JWoww and the rest of the crew.
When asked if he were familiar with the show, Bradley Cooper, who is presenting Best Kiss at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards ceremony, told MTV Movies: "I am ashamed to say that I am not, because all of my friends, that's all they talk about." Cooper revealed that he actually has his own Jersey connection: "I grew up going to the Jersey Shore every summer."
Meanwhile, Jessica Biel, who not only is presenting the Best Kiss award with Cooper but also co-stars with him in the new "A-Team" film, admitted she knew about the show, but wasn't much more familiar with it than Cooper.
"I've never seen it," Biel confessed. "I know who these people are — I mean, I don't live in a hole. Well, somewhat but not really. But I've never seen the show."
The MTV Movies team helped Biel out, explaining that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's perfectly carved physique earned him his now-infamous nickname. Biel laughed, "Oh, God, that's a person? 'The Situation' equals ample abs? I wasn't aware. Thank you!
"I know somebody would have said that," she said about walking the Movie Awards red carpet on Sunday and fielding "Jersey Shore" questions. "And I would have said, 'I don't know what's going on! What's happening?' "
During MTV News' "Jersey Shore Blow-Out at the MTV Movie Awards," which airs at 8 p.m., right before the Movie Awards, Snooki, Pauly, JWoww, the Situation, Angelina, Sammi, Ronnie and Vinny will present the first 10 minutes of "Jersey Shore" season two.
