Anna Faris reveals the food animal you won't see in 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2'


The sequel to 2009’s Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs takes place in a landscape inhabited by hordes of fantastical food-animal hybrids — including shrimpanzees, tacodiles, flamangos, and meatbalruses. But there’s one creation that didn’t make it into the final cut: the guacaghanoush, a being that came straight from the mind of Cloudy 2 star Anna Faris.

“This is so dumb,” the actress told EW on Wednesday afternoon with a laugh. “But I was trying to pitch to the directors a guacaghanoush character — like, some mound of guacamole and baba ghanoush.”

Unfortunately, Cloudy 2 directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn weren’t sold by Faris’ idea. “They’re like, ‘Okay, but what part is the animal?’ I’m like, ‘No no no, listen — it’s fusion food! Mexican/Middle Eastern! Guacaganoush!’ They didn’t want it.”
