Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has always been known as a bit of a prankster, and no matter what, she always seems to find a way to scare the heck out of a slew of her guests, including most recently Anne Hathaway.
During a June 7 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk up the release of her movie Ocean’s 8, Hathaway sat down with DeGeneres for a game titled Oceans 1. During the game, they would give each other one word clues for the answers, much like the old game show “Password.”
But little did Hathaway know that DeGeneres had something else in mind, as the fun-loving talk show host had hidden someone in the table between them to jump out when Hathaway least expected it.
Or rather, when either of them expected it!
“He usually can hear and there was going to be a signal where I was going to do something,” DeGeneres explained after the big scare as Hathaway was still wiping the tears from her eyes. “But we just found out he couldn’t hear us.”
No matter what, the prank can now be added to all the ones that DeGeneres has done in the past on stars such as Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Bieber.
