Leslie Jones Looks Back on Messing Up an ‘SNL’ Sketch with Chris Rock

Remember when Chris Rock hosted SNL last year and starred opposite Leslie Jones in the sketch “The Couple” that turned into a complete train wreck? In a new video, Jones looks back on the experience — her first time dealing with stage direction changes before dress rehearsal and the live show — and now that she’s had time to reflect, she’s happy things didn’t work out so well, because now she can feel confident it’ll never happen again. Everybody makes mistakes, but unfortunately for new SNL cast members, those mistakes are televised live for all of America to see. Thankfully Jones can handle the pressure.
