Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is known for her hilarious interactions with fans and unexpected moments that crop up during her broadcasts – one of which occurred during her joint stream with fellow streamer ‘Mizkif.’

Pokimane was in the middle of a conversation with Mizkif on May 23 when she asked him what tag she should use, should she ever decide to rebrand herself.

Mizkif answered that Pokimane should simply use her legal name if such a rebranding ever came about – a suggestion that Pokimane quickly shot down due to the many jokes that have been made using her real name, Imane Anys.

Pokimane, TwitterPopular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys recently reached three million subscribers on the platform, being the 13th person on the site’s history to meet such a milestone.600https://twitter.com/pokimanelol/status/1130571415457951744?s=20

“It’s a letter off of ‘anus,’ so I don’t think I should include it,” Pokimane laughingly said of her last name. “I’ve lived with this name my whole life. If you think I don’t know every single meme… On top of that, when you connect my first and last name, Imane Anys, you could just write, like, ‘I’m an anus.’”

Mizkif found Pokimane’s explanation hilarious, and went on to poke fun at the Twitch chat for inciting such jokes, comparing them to preschoolers.

“A lot of time, Twitch chat is like a preschool generator, so when you give them an insult, they’ll just keep generating it,” Mizkif said of the matter.

Pokimane is well-versed in the immaturity expressed by some members of the online gaming community; in fact, the streamer was left floored by the behavior of old-school RuneScape players during a broadcast of the game on May 16, after they gathered in the shape of a phallus that displayed on her mini-map for all to see.

“The minimap – you guys made a… that is some impressive coordination, I won’t even lie,” Pokimane said laughingly. “Dude, RuneScape is something else.”

Of course, Pokimane has likewise had multiple run-ins with actual children during her streams, one of which expressed blatantly problematic behaviorFortnite Battle Royale.

Pokimane is one of the most popular female streamers on Twitch, having recently reached 3 million followers on the platform – a feat that only 13 streamers have been able to meet, thus far.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
