Ed Helms may be one of the funniest actors in Hollywood, but his family may have him beat.
The actor, 45, shared a hilarious story about his family’s reaction to a false rumor claiming he was having an affair with his Corporate Animals costar Demi Moore while on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night.
“We finished shooting the movie, a couple of months go by and I’m on vacation with my family and my wife’s family,” Helms said. “I get a call from my publicist and she says, ‘I think I know the answer to this but just double-checking, you’re not in a romantic relationship with Demi Moore, right?’”
“I was like, ‘No, I’m happily married, I’m on vacation with my family. What are you talking about?’” he said before his publicist explained a tabloid had printed a false rumor of his supposed affair with Moore, 56.
Helms immediately checked on his wife to reassure her the news was false, but was met with an unexpected response.
“I’m thinking, ‘This is terrible, I have to get to my wife, I have to tell her before she hears this ridiculous story from somewhere else,’” Helms said. “I’m really anxious. She’s sitting there with her mother, and before I can say anything they go, ‘Demi Moore? High five!’”
