You are right! He does resemble a bull dog.
I do remember that interview, or at least the coverage of it. I was generally speaking about written interviews and... Lots of BS floating around on the interwebs
It is a different story when confirmed.
I know JL has said some offensive stuff, that she should not, but I don't pay a great deal of attention to her. I've only seen the stuff posted here. It's not that I find what she says funny per say (when it comes to being offensive), but the predicaments her brain to mouth disconnect gets her into sometimes are. Her and many other celebrities throughout the years.
