Emmys Women on Punching Jimmy Kimmel: 'Like Hitting a Soft Bag of Cheese' (Video)
Stars of the dark awards show opener talk about what it felt like to repeatedly punch the show's host in the face.
The all-star, all-female cast of the infamous "bathroom sketch" that opened the 2012 Emmys shared some some of its secrets in a short documentary that aired on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The sketch saw nominees like Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Zooey Deschanel, Christina Hendricks, Martha Plimpton, Kathy Bates and Mindy Kaling punching Jimmy Kimmel in the face in order to undo the effects of a botched Botox procedure.
"I just really went to town on his face," Bates says.
"I also punched Martha Plimpton," Connie Britton admits -- and we see her wind up to take a crack, accidentally getting the Raising Hope star "right in the nose" with her elbow.
Plimpton, meanwhile, likens punching Kimmel to "hitting a bag of soft cheese. Maybe a brie."
