41-year-old artist Dmitry Khrustalev admits that he wanted to return to TNT.
The actor recalls that when he got a job on Channel One, he was discouraged for a long time. They say that working with Urgant will not be easy, because the host is a real egocentric. And this turned out to be not an exaggeration at all.
"I saw that he was a blanket, - the star shared with Irina Shikhman. - As soon as I begin to cover myself with a blanket, it immediately closes completely, and I lie naked. It was very hard for me. I thought: “That's it! I cannot be in this state. I need to go to TNT and beg on my knees to let me back to Comedy Woman! " But I resisted. Knew this moment would roll".
It took a long time to wait for the cherished hour. Khrustalev admits that at first he felt extremely uncomfortable with Urgant. “I acted like Kaa on Banderlog. We communicate with the authors, I have fun, but he comes in, and I can't say a word! I came funnier and more active than me, ”the artist confessed.
Dmitry notes: he came to the project not because of a high fee, but in order to gain new experience. Now a trusting relationship has been built between the artists, and they can communicate on an equal footing. For this Mitya had to do a lot of work on herself.
"I've never been second, ”he said. - I'm either prim in ballet, or I don't need such a ballet. But I went to this program to learn how to be second. It is interesting to me. After all, a person must do something with dignity, regardless of where he is. I went to work in the full improvisation genre. And before he worked like this: learned the text - went on stage".
However, in "Evening Urgant" the showman does not show his true self. “All my women call me Dima, according to my passport I am Dmitry, and Mitya is a stage name. Mitka Khrustalev is the mask that I put on in front of the cameras ... He is such a sycophant, sometimes even a sycophant, throwing jokes at the main host, he does not pretend to say funny things himself. Sometimes in "Evening Urgant" I say words that I would never say, because it's stupid. But I need to say that for Ivan's joke to work. We're acting out scenes"- he explained in the YouTube show" And Talk? ".
