'He kind of blew right by me like I was the greeter, and went (dismissively),' Hank Azaria said about his first meeting with Mick Jagger on 'The Simpsons' set.
Mick Jagger's appearance on "The Simpsons" resulted in one of the show's most awkward moments. The rocker rudely ignored Hank Azaria as he thought the actor was a lowly assistant on the series.
The Rolling Stones star and his bandmate Keith Richards were animated for the hit show in 2002, and headed into the studio to record their lines for the episode. But Azaria, who voices a number of characters on the longrunning series, was shocked by Jagger's attitude.
He says, "They sent me down to greet Mick Jagger when he arrived to record his part, and I said, 'Hey, Mick, we're thrilled to have you here.' And he kind of blew right by me like I was the greeter, and went (dismissively), 'Yeah, we'll get it.' It made me a little bit annoyed. I knew it was going to get awkward, because I was about to walk upstairs and record with him."
