Robert Iler and Jamie-Lynn Sigler have a confession to make: they've never seen an episode of "The Sopranos," the iconic HBO show that essentially launched their careers.
"Jamie and I have never fully [watched the show]… Jamie started to watch 'The Sopranos' during the pandemic, and [she] got half way," Robert told Page Six. "I've never seen it."
The on-screen siblings, however, do intend to watch "The Sopranos" prequel, "The Many Saints of Newark," but they plan to be confused, as well. After the viewing, though, the duo will bring former costar Michael Imperioli on their podcast, "Pajama Pants," to discuss the prequel and, to an extent, the sequel, which aired from 1999 to 2007.
"We're gonna be clueless," Robert said. "Michael [who played Christopher Moltisanti on "The Sopranos"] is going to come on and explain to us everything we don't understand."
Robert went on to explain that he never watched the crime drama because the majority of the cast didn't either.
"I grew up on that set and it was very anti-Hollywood," he said. "It wasn't like, 'We want Insta followers' and all this. [It was more like], 'We don't want to look — we don't want to see ourselves!' I fell in line with everyone else."
"It makes you kind of cringe," he said of seeing himself onscreen, "like [hearing] your voice on an answering machine."
