Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis star in this very funny skit from last weekend's Saturday Night Live in which we get to see the real story behind the Grant Wood painting "American Gothic." The 1930 painting hangs is on display at the Art Institute of Chicago. Wood had his sister Nan and their dentist pose for the painting, which represented a farmer and his unmarried daughter.
The couple looks quite grim in the painting. But as we see in this skit, there is a very good reason for their grumpiness -- and if the models had their way it would have been a different painting altogether. Take a look:
