WATCH: 5 most hilarious moments of Eminem’s career
As we prepare ourselves for the awesomeness that will be Eminem’s UK tour (two dates at Twickenham Stadium this summer) we thought we’d take a look at some of ‘The Real Slim Shady’ star’s funniest moments.
Instead of focusing on his funny music videos that we’re sure you’ve seen hundreds of times, we’ve picked Eminem’s most laugh-out-loud film cameos and TV appearances.
1. Sacha Baron Cohen lands buttocks-first on Eminem’s face
During 2009’s MTV Movie Awards, Sacha Baron Cohen - in character as flamboyant fashion journalist Brüno - descended from the ceiling to present an award.
But an "equipment malfunction" spun the comedian upsidedown, placing his bum cheeks squarely in Eminem’s face.
Despite expressing disgust and storming out of the ceremony, it turns out the hip-hop star was in on the prank the whole time. The star claims he “laughed uncontrollably in his hotel room for three hours.”
2. Eminem ‘comes out of the closet’
In a scene from the 2014 film ‘The Interview’, Eminem is interviewed by James Franco’s character, during which he nonchalantly reveals he is a homosexual live on air. The star - who frequently challenges claims that he's homophobic - calmly admits he is gay and is surprised fans hadn’t worked it out sooner.
3. Eminem’s thoughtful gift for Elton John
Further proof that Eminem doesn’t have a problem with gay people is the wedding present he bought Sir Elton John and David Furnish.

4. Eminem doesn’t love Raymond
In a cameo for the 2009 film ‘Funny People’, Eminem stars as himself in a scene with Adam Sandler, but suddenly clocks ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ star Ray Romano staring at him.

5. Eminem and Stephen Colbert take over public access
In 2015, residents of US city Monroe were in shock when their small public access channel was invaded by comedian and talk show host Stephen Colbert - and a very special guest…
Eminem appears confused when the now-host of ‘The Late Show’ introduces him as a “local Michigander who is making a name for himself in the competitive world of music,” and goes on to ask questions like, “Are you sing-songy rap like Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony or are you more street, like Will Smith?"
