A recent interview by Tara Reid to promote an upcoming movie has fans worried, after the 'American Pie' actress was seen slurring her way through an Australian morning talk show.

The 42-year-old actress could barely keep her eyes open during the strange and bizarre interview while appearing on 'Today Extra' to promote the release of the sixth and final Sharknado movie. 

She also seemed out of sorts as she talked about the franchise movie. She told 'Today' hosts David Campbell and Deborah Knight, "This one, you guys, honestly is beyond … it’s my favourite one. It’s so ridiculous. It’s so bad that it’s good," she said. "I mean [inaudible] gone out of space, I've already had a baby inside of a shark, we have done everything," she continued. 

As the interview progressed, she struggled with her earpiece which kept falling out. She was also tripped up by the satellite delay between Sydney and New York, from where she was talking.

After seeing Tara's slurring, many fans and followers took to social media to express their concern. One fan shared, "OMG – she looked and sounded totally out of it – slurring her words" while another added, "She's out of her tree". 

While attempting to talk about her experience in Australia, she had to start and stop twice before finally being able to share her story. "One time when I was visiting in Australia I took a helicopter over, we were landing in a hotel, and as we took the helicopter over we went, like, really low down and I saw the netting," Tara said. "And where the netting was, it was unbelievable, there was so many stingrays and sharks. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. And then you see like, little kids playing on the beach, I’m like, ‘oh my god, do they have any idea what’s on the other side of those nets?" she continued. 

"I’ve never seen anything like that in my life. It was the Gold Coast," she added. Both Campbell and Knight also brought up the rumors of another 'American Pie' movie and Reid sounded very hopeful. "There’s a lot of talk about it," she revealed. "I was at one of the Emmy parties and I ran into the directors and the writers of American Pie and I was like, ‘come on guys, when are making the next American Pie?’ And they both looked at me and they’re like, ‘soon Tara, it’s gonna happen’" she shared. 

In an interview with KTLA 5, Tara spoke about her Sharknado journey so far and shared, "The fans have been so amazing, but all good things must come to an end. To be honest, when I read [the script] I thought it was the worst movie I'd ever read. I was like this is so dumb it's not even funny," she revealed.
