With the annual nerd pilgrimage to San Diego happening this week, July 12-15, G4TV’s resident sideline reporter for their in-depth live coverage of the event — and your pick for Esquire.com’s Hottest Woman of 2012 — called us up from her bedroom. Again.
ESQUIRE.COM: How’ve you been?
SARA UNDERWOOD: Well I drank a lot yesterday, and I’m hurting right now.
ESQ: That’s right. It’s only 11:15 out there. You just waking up, getting going again? Trying to?
SU: Oh, no. I’m still in bed. As soon as this interview’s over I’m going back to bed and I don’t plan on being up for a while.
ESQ: Well, glad we could rouse you out of your hangover for a minute. What have you been up to since you were crowned Esquire.com’s Hottest Woman of 2012? Any victory laps?
SU: Yeah, I pretty much remind everyone on Attack of the Show daily. It’s such a cool honor. I still can’t believe I got voted that.
ESQ: You’ll have remind us of a few things about Comic-Con, which, I have to say, I am completely ignorant about.
SU: That’s such a tragedy.
ESQ: What are you particularly excited for this year?
SU: There’s so much fun stuff about Comic-Con – it’s enormous – that it’s hard to say anything in particular. The panels are all always the highlight, with exclusive clips that you’ll only see at Comic-Con or that haven’t been seen before. And so many great movies have panels: Iron Man 3 is going to be awesome, The Hobbit is gonna be great, there’s Man of Steel, and Breaking Badseason five — woo hoo!
ESQ: What about something like Twilight? Do you care about that?
SU: I don’t give a crap about Twilight. I really don’t. I would like to know when that girl is going to learn how to act. That would be awesome. She’s so famous, it’s got to kick in sometime, right? I’m not a Twilight fan, but that’s okay. I understand why a lot of people are, so I shouldn’t hate on it that much.
ESQ: What about The Hobbit panel? Fanboys have been clamoring for this since Return of the King, and that came out ages ago.
SU: It has to be the most anticipated panel at Comic-Con. I can’t wait to see what is. They’ve been pretty tight lipped about what to expect.
ESQ: Okay, what about Django Unchained, which is gonna have a panel but doesn’t really strike me as a Comic-Con type material?
SU: No, but it really doesn’t have to be. All this stuff is pretty much everything pop-culture. I mean, the people that go to Comic-Con are gonna be down with Django — it’s graphic and it’s gory and it’s Quentin Tarantino. I think he’s considered one of their gods. The cool thing about Django being at the panel is a lot of times they make them go off-site for kind of more of the R-rated type movies. But since it’s a Tarantino movie they, allowed it in the H-Hall — the infamous H-Hall…
ESQ: So that’s where the big stuff goes?
SU: Yeah, it’s where all the magic happens.
ESQ: Something like Total Recall would be in there, then?
SU: Probably. And Thor 2. And Pacific Rim, which looks awesome. There’s rumor of a Godzilla reboot announcement, which is pretty cool. And then tons of TV shows.
ESQ: Again, I must admit, I know nothing about Breaking Bad.
SU: Hey, I was right there with you. I’m always so late to jump on the TV-show bandwagons, but the panel is one day before the first episode airs on AMC, and I hear that they’re gonna play the first two episodes for everyone in attendance. But I don’t want to hear a thing because I’m not caught up yet.
ESQ: Are you going to try to squeeze it all in beforehand?
SU: I think I could. I mean, I’ve got that little of a life that I could probably finish it off before Comic-Con.
ESQ: And then the whole thing lasts, what, four days? Do you have to go on vacation for two weeks just to recoup from all this?
SU: I’m going to Cancun for a couple days, and I’m just gonna get massages and facials and sleep and not drink. Eventually I’ll get myself ready for this, and then I’m definitely going on vacation right after, too. I mean, you have to.
ESQ: How do you, with your particular fan base, get through it? You must have some serious security detail.
SU: Each G4 host does have a security guard or two, and while G4 is very big at Comic-Con, to say the least, it seems like every celebrity in the world comes out. You see as many stars as you see people walking around, or at least close to that.
ESQ: At Comic-Con, you are kind of an A-lister, aren’t you?
SU: I think that’s an accurate statement. But that’s the only place I’ll ever be A-list. But I’ll take it.
ESQ: That’s two awards in one year, then.
SU: Exactly. This is Esquire’s Hottest Woman of 2012, signing off!
Sara’s done it! She made it to the final 2 of Esquire’s sexiest woman of 2012. You know what that means, right? We’ve got to vote, vote, vote vote VOTE! She’s up against HRH Kate Middleton.
