Earlier this month, Associated Press released a video of Cosby denying the increasing number of rape allegations against him. In addition to these, the fallen comedy legend refused to admit to some other well-known truths. Here are denials found in the rest of the transcript, as well as his thoughts on Interstellar.
Being Named “Bill Cosby”
Interviewer: Thanks for joining me. Should I call you Mr. Cosby?
Cosby: No. Don’t believe the rumors out there.
Interviewer: So you prefer Bill?
Cosby: We don’t talk about that.
Wearing Brightly Patterned Sweaters
Interviewer: The “Cosby sweater” became your trademark. Was wearing brightly
patterned sweaters a conscious decision?
Cosby: Why don’t you formulate your own opinion based on facts?
Jiggliness of Jell-O jigglers
Interviewer: What was it like starring in those Jell-O Jigglers commercials?
Cosby: I have nothing to do with Jell-O. Or its jiggliness.
The Number 52
Interviewer: You’ve been in comedy for 52 years, correct?
Cosby: How are you so sure that 52 is a real number? Please talk to my attorney first.
Interviewer: What are your thoughts about the Holocaust?
Cosby: No. I’d appreciate if that was scuttled.
Interviewer: Have you seen Interstellar?
Cosby: Yes. Great movie.*
* Cosby had so much to say about Interstellar, AP didn’t have enough space to publish the rest of his review.
