Alexis Bledel Has Addressed The ‘Gilmore Girls’ Coffee Mug Controversy

Alexis Bledel is giving love to some under-appreciated characters.

Argentine-Mexican actor Alexis Bledel was on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” promoting the “Gilmore Girls” reboot when host Jimmy Fallon, who just got around to watching the show, asked Bledel who her favorite characters are. Surprisingly, even after Fallon’s admission to being Team Jess, Bledel did not include either Jess or Dean in her top 4 characters. Oh no. Instead, Bledel showed her love for some of the lesser known and under-appreciated characters like Babette Dell, Miss Patty, Kirk Gleason and, best of all, Caesar. You know, the Latino dude the worked for Luke in his coffeeshop and very clearly loves chilaquiles?

“I think that Caesar is awesome,” Bledel told Fallon.

Hey!!! Welcome to Caesar's, um I mean Luke's. #gilmoregirlsrevival #gilmoregirls

“He works at Luke’s. I think he kind of runs the place,” Bledel continued. “Like if he [Luke] has to go be with Lorelai, he’s [Caesar’s] like, ‘I got it.'” Bledel even said that he is awesome and one of the underrated characters in the “Gilmore Girls” universe.

Bledel even tackled the super ~controversial~ and awkward promo photos.

“My favorite one… this is the best one,” Fallon said to Bledel while laughing. “This is you holding a coffee mug and that’s not normal. Do you understand that that’s not normal? Nobody holds a coffee mug like that.”

“Well, mostly it’s not normal because that’s an oversized coffee mug,” Bledel responded. “”That coffee mug is, like, almost the size of my face.”

And, yes. She does know how to properly hold a coffee mug.
