“I just think she’s comedically great,” Kelly, real name Colson Baker, told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday at the film’s premiere at The London Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif. “I think she’s so underrated as a comedic actress and as an actress who can adapt to different faces and phases, so it was an honor.”
Kelly, 32, and Fox, 35, hit the carpet in opulent style with the rock star donning a hot pink satin Dolce & Gabbana suit accented with red roses – while Fox sported a shimmering pink strapless dress by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini who came complete with a high thigh split.

With the all-star cast of misfits each having smash hits in their own respective ways, Kelly said many of Fox’s lines that made it into the film were taken straight from their own fireside chats in their personal life.
“Every line that people wanted to keep in the editing station that she said were things that she actually said to me in real life,” he explained. “She was like, ‘You’re 30. It’s time to grow up.'”
