Toni made a surprise appearance on television, promoting “Jesus Henry Christ” on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. After briefly talking about the film, the interview circled mostly about Australia – various Australian bars – and their children. This has been Toni’s fourth appearance on Craig Ferguson’s show – she first appeared in 2005 to promote “In her Shoes”, then in 2006 to promote “Little Miss Sunshine” and in 2009 for the release of “United States of Tara”. The full interview can be watched in the video archive, HD screencaptures have been added to the image library.
