tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC June 12, 2019 11:35pm-12:37am PDT
all right, we appreciate your time. >> thanks for joining us. >> dickey: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live." tonight, the cast of "dark phoenix" featuring -- sophie turner -- james mcavoy -- jennifer lawrence -- michael fassbender -- jessica chastain -- nicholas hoult -- and tye sheridan -- plus unified heavyweight champion andy ruiz jr. -- and a tribute to avicii d now, j kimmel! >> jimmy: welcome, thank you, m. i'm the host of the show. thank you for coming. thanks for watching, i'm glad you're here. oh, we have a super powerful show for you tonight. this is a rare night in hollywood where there are actual super bowls instead of the fake ones outside. the cast of "dark phoenix" is with us.
[cheers and applause] magnito, the beast, cyclops flagstaff, phoenix, i made the last one up. but they're all your favorite x men and women. there are more celebrities than parents weekend at ufc. it's quite an evening. and also with us, i'm super excited about this, he's the new heavyweight champion of the world. he is the first mexican ever to be heavyweight champion of the world. andy ruiz jr. is here. he got knocked down. he got back up again. he really captured the spirit of chumba wumba on saturday night. that's ruiz. it's funny. i was at the dodger game. i got texts from people congratulating guillermo. on winning the heavyweight title. put that back up there for a second. i do see a bit of resemblance, but they don't look that much, guillermo, where's guillermo, where is guillermo?
>> jimmy, i'm right here, woo! >> jimmy: what are you doing back there? >> i'm celebrating my heavyweight championship, jimmy. >> jimmy: oh, is that your, you're not andy ruiz. >> i know, but those white people don't know that, jimmy. yeah! >> jimmy: the other andy ruiz will be here. the president is more than 5,000 miles away from us right now trying not to do anything ridiculous in london. it was day two of his official state visit. the reason he went to london, it's interesting. he heard they had a tea time every day, and it didn't mean golf. he was very upset. there he is. the burger king and the queen. his tuxedo really stole the show. i didn't know huggies made tuxedos. here's another shot. oh, that's, looks great. very statesman like. and you know while trump has
been on his be-best behavior with the queen he did lash out at the mayor of london. he tweeted sadiq khan has been foolishly nasty to the visiting president of the united states. by far the most important ally of the united kingdom. he is a stone-cold loser. he should focus on crime in london. the mayor said he would not respond to being called a stone-cold loser because i am not 11 years old. it is funny. you have to admit that the queen and prime minister have to pretends that this is normal and have dinners for trump. it's kind of a great thing. in between royal meals, the president had a press conference with theresa may at which he was asked about the anti-trump
protest go being ing on in lond. >> we left the queen, the royal family. there were thousands of people on the streets cheering. and even coming over today there were thousands of people cheering. and then i heard that there were protests. i said where are the protests? i don't see any protests. i did see a small protest when i came today, very small. so a lot of it is fake news. but you saw the people waving the american flag, waving your flag. it was tremendous spirit and love. it was great love. it was an alliance, and i didn't see the protesters until just a little while ago, and it was a very small group of people but for political reasons, so it was fake news. >> poor theresa may looked like she swallowed a frog. let's take a look at some of those thousands of people on the street cheering for trump. there you see a group of well-wishers. well, if there's one thing trump knows how to estimate, it's a crowd size. and yes, they even dedicated a statue to him. so, as you can see, it was a real trumps giving day parade. the queen gave trump a book,
that's funny, right? but it was not the book that people are talking about today. there's another white house tell-all. this one is called "siege, trump under fire", the sequel to "fire and fury." which came out last year and sold 4 million copies. this one paints a similarly unflattering portrait of the president. some of the mcnuggets, according to the book, the president called brett kavanaugh weak and that he was probably molested by a priest. he said second lady pence gives him the creeps and of mike pence, why does he look at me like that? he looks at you like that because he has to concentrate because sometimes it's hard not to imagine ricky martin in a bathing suit. but the book claims trump bragged, he said he received oral sex from the former u.n. ambassador. he said he banged a low-level white house employee and doesn't need viagra. he needs a pill to calm things down, down there.
the president by the way, trump's assistant on the "apprentice" said he was a 12 year old boy in a man's body. who can't handle numbers and can't walk down steps. and another white house staffer who reportedly spent countless hours with the president said i have never met anyone crazier than donald trump. but i'm sure that's all fake news. he's a very stable genius. he's told us that himself. speaking of geniuses, i want to say congratulations and condolences to james holtshower. he's guy from "jeopardy." he had an incredible run. he raked in $2.4 million. this guy was on "jeopardy" so long, it's going to take him a year to stop answering things in the form of a question. he was taken down by librarian from chicago, a woman named emma boettcher. it seemed like the producers wanted her to win. i don't know if you saw it.
these are the categories. things that bother chicago librarians, items in emma boettcher's purse. members of emma boettcher's family. the dewey decimal system and stuff james holzhauer won't know. they gave him, i don't know if you saw, they gave him a very non-traditional sendoff. >> what a game. oh, my god. we're going to say good-bye to james, too. >> promotional consideration provided by dyson. >> jimmy: he was eaten by dogs. that's why they call it "final jeopardy". everybody under the age of 75 can go back to not caring about jeopardy again. it's graduation season. this is when teachers, students when prominent figures are asked to give commencement speeches about life, work and all the things graduates care about. there are a few ways to go about it. you can read inspirational
quotes, you can give advice, reassurance or you could do this. >> a high school principal is accused of plagiarizing a speech that ashton kutcher gave. at the nickelodeon kids choice awards six years ago. kenny demoss works in parkersburg, west virginia. he says he didn't mean to use someone else's work and should have cited his sources. students were shocked at the similarities. >> jimmy: how did they even know the similarities of what ashton kutcher said at the kids choice award? how much of an impact could that have made. >> so first the opportunity. >> so first the opportunity. >> i believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work. >> i believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work. >> and i've never had a job in my life. >> i never had a job in my life. >> that i was better than. >> that i was better than. >> i was always just lucky to have a job. >> i was always lucky to just have a job.
>> and every job i had was a steppingstone to my next job. >> and every job i had was a stepping >> and i never quit my job until i had my next job. >> and i never quit my job until i had my next job. >> and so opportunities look a lot like work. >> and so opportunities, for me, look like hard work. >> jimmy: he added "for me." so that was different. the weirdest part was when he ended the speech by proposing to mila kunis. if you want to inspire young people, that is not the way to go about it. this is the way to go about it. of all the demonstrations against the president and his visit to the uk this was the most creative. a high school student lives about five miles from the airport where trump's plane was landing did a little manscaping. on his parents' lawn. unfortunately, we've had to blur this image. but he mowed a giant penis into
the grass next to the words "oi trump." he was hoping the president would see it on his way in. he also mowed a polar bear and the message "climate change is real." so obviously, i figured it would be good to get to know this kid before i adopt him. so we reached out, and joining us now from his town in bishop storkford, england, say hello. [cheers and applause] >> hi. >> jimmy: ollie, thank you for joining us. how old are you? >> i'm 18. >> jimmy: 18. have you always been interested in art? >> not this kind. i've always been interested in art, yeah. >> jimmy: what inspired you to do this? >> well, i've had strong passion for climate change for quite a while now, and i knew that trump was coming in and my house i
believe is on some sort of flight path because we get tons of planes over all the time. so i thought this was the best time to do something. this is what came up. >> jimmy: and what do your parents think about this plan? >> my parents loved it. i mean, my mum was actually the one who helped my. now, you know, but, you know, they're super proud of me. >> jimmy: oh, of course. my stupid parents get mad when i do stuff like this. [cheers and applause] what kind of a mower did you use to do that? >> so it's just a normal ride-on lawnmower. >> jimmy: oh, you've got a riding mower, very impressive. did this cause a commotion in your town? is everybody aware of this now? >> i mean everyone is aware of it. pretty much everyone. i came home, i came home yesterday --
>> jimmy: you got a visit from the police, is that correct? >> yes, i came home from my exam yesterday to be greeted by the itb and a few detectives. >> jimmy: is it against the law or the lawn, is it against the law? >> well, it's been said it's at risk of breaching the public indecency act. i've been strictly advised. >> jimmy: you've altered the image after the police visited you to this. that's a turtle, right? a sea turtle. >> yeah. >> jimmy: ollie, did you think about any other animals? or was it sea turtle immediately? >> well, sea turtle is quite significant to me, because i visited malaysia last year and i've gone scuba diving with turtles, it's a little bit of a life-changing thing.
>> jimmy: do you think this will change the president's mind about climate change? you'll sway him in any way? >> i mean, he's a pretty stubborn guy. so probably not. >> jimmy: can i make a recommendation for the flight out? boobs next time. i think he'll respond more to boobs. >> yeah, i think he'd like that more. >> jimmy: well, very well done, ollie. and if you ever move to america i'd love you to be my gardener. thank you, ollie. >> cheers. >> jimmy: we have a great show tonight. music from aloe blacc, the heavyweight champion of the world andy ruiz jr. is here, and we'll be right back with the cast of "dark phoenix." so stick around.

>> jimmy: of course we know. we're americans. you, you have had a rough month, because i saw a video of you. roll this video. i wonder if the rest of the gang has seen this. >> oh, my god, it's on video. >> jimmy: that's a horse. >> we don't want to do anything to get you upset. >> oh! >> that horse just bit my boob. >> are you hiding sugar lumps in your bra? >> i was just trying to be respectful and ask, get consent before you pet. >> equine consent. >> and the horse didn't bother to get consent. i had my life flash before my eyes at some point. and even an hour later i was looking through the park and i was still having flashbacks. it was really intense. >> jimmy: my son bit me the other day.
we almost put him up for adoption. >> where did he bite you? >> jimmy: on the arm right here. >> oh, okay, not on the [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: no, no. he knows where he eats, yes. this is not a spoiler, but we know that jennifer's character raven gets killed in this movie. and i wonder if that was emotional. >> yeah, it was. i was told not to -- >> jimmy: did anyone cry? was this a moment of anything? >> i teared up a little bit watching sophie in that scene. it was so, her reaction to my death was so, like, raw, and i died with my eyes open. it was so honest and real, and it's because she really was crying, because her dialect coach right before the take took her juul away. >> jimmy: her electronic cigarette. >> she started tearing up, it was like the performance of the year.
>> thank you. >> jimmy: so that's where you get your motivation, from your juul cigarette. >> it's how to act. you take it away and give it back. and that's happy and sad. >> jimmy: you guys have been x men together since you were x boys almost. quite a long time now. >> x, we've been doing it for nine years. >> jimmy: i heard you guys like to race on the set with golf carts or whatever is around. >> he's taken it to the extreme, you're racing semi-professionally. >> not semi-professionally at all. >> jimmy: and who wins the golf buggy races? >> we were together. >> there's only one golf buggy. i don't know did we ever actually race. there was one fast one, the director's. >> we were like doing time trials. >> and i thought, wow, james is actually really good.
he's really fast. but then i realized he's just crazy, going way too fast, but we came up with this idea to counter balance, so i was like hanging out the back. >> i was in the front. i was like, oh -- [ bleep ] >> drop the mic. drop the mic. >> and so -- >> he's driving. doing a left turn. so i would basically kind of >> i would go this side to get traction on the outside wheels. [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: like a bobsled team. >> the wheels bit in pretty effectively, and he drove into the back of a lexus. one of the drivers, and i flew over the back part of the car with sort of where the back seat is, and banged my head off the steering wheel and landed in the driver's seat, so everyone thought i was driving. and i thought, if i'm here, where's james? and he was like on the ground. and he's like, are you all right, mate? there was a big lump on his head. he hit the plexiglass windows.
>> i'm all right. but you still have the scars on your legs. >> i do have the scars on my legs. >> jimmy: tye, are you recording this for posterity? do you always take a lot of pictures? >> you know what, i'm taking pictures that no one else can. >> jimmy: you have a certain point of view. no one else can take a picture of the audience. >> oh, this is a great one. >> jimmy: or is this just a scheme to take pictures of nicolas and his beautiful blue eyes? >> it's been a scheme that i set up. >> jimmy: is it terrible to be in blue makeup? the two of you are blue a lot, in a lot of the movie. is that as, i watch it and i think oh, i wouldn't want to be blue. >> are you going to take this? >> i don't mind. we've got great makeup artists who take great care of us. i get hot, sweat pouring out my ears and all sorts throughout
the day, but the highlight is when i go back to my trailer and i'm a bit grumpy because i'm hot and whatever, and i go in the toilet and i close the door and sit down and look in the mirror and i see this blue furry beast looking back. and i am like, you too. >> we did the tree of life together when tye was 10 years old. >> jimmy: and now you're trying to kill him. >> yeah. >> jimmy: is it true you bought him beer for the first sometime >> no! that is not true. >> jessica! >> you are going to start a rumor that's not true. >> jimmy: what kind of alcohol was it. >> i never bought him alcohol. i was the person who like he said he wanted a career in the industry, and i was like, you've got talent, kid. let me see if i can help you. and he would -- no! and we would work on his
auditions together. >> jimmy: well, how about that, that is very sweet. >> hello. >> jimmy: that's like sophie and her juul pen. >> i'm just wondering about the bee suit. >> the muscles. very muscular. >> a poo flap? >> jimmy: we're going to see an exclusive clip from the film and dip into a jar. each one of you has written your greatest fear on a piece of paper, and we're going to go through the jar and reveal all about the cast of "dark phoenix". we'll be back with that after this. ♪ ime daddy!

>> he wanted me to win this fight. >> jimmy: and you did. >> yeah. >> jimmy: thanks to gerald for all the wrong reasons, but thanks to gerald. so you are now going to have a rematch, because as the champion, that is his, he's able to dictate that. are you looking forward to a rematch? >> of course, you know. if he wants to rematch, i'll give it to him. i'm willing to go over there or if they're willing to come over here. >> jimmy: to the uk? >> mm-hm. we're starting negotiations. >> jimmy: oh, you would go over there? >> i would. >> jimmy: i think you stay here. because boxing, it can be very shaky, you know, well, you know how it is, and i think you want to, i think you should have this fight here. >> have it here in america. yeah, i agree. >> jimmy: or mexico. >> or mexico. >> jimmy: keep going south. have it in venezuela if you can. >> yeah. >> jimmy: how old were you when you first fought? >> i was 6 years old when i
first went into a gym and my first amateur fight i was 7 years old. my dad said i was going to fight in san diego. i was this big, heavy kid. nobody was in my weight at that age. so i had to fight 12 year old, 13 year old when i was 7 years old. and what do you know, i was beating them. >> jimmy: that had to make them think twice about a future in boxing getting beaten by a 7-year-old. >> by a 7-year-old. >> jimmy: when are you a 11-1 underdog, which you were, does your family bet on you? >> as a matter of fact my dad, my brother, my mom, all of them almost made $10,000 off of me. >> jimmy: what do you mean they almost made. >> well, they did. >> jimmy: they bet almost $1,000 each. >> yeah. >> jimmy: wow. that's your brother and your dad. >> yeah. >> jimmy: senior. oh, you know what, as proud of yourself as you are i can only imagine how proud your dad is of
you right now. am i wrong on that? >> oh, i feel so proud, man, my rocky mexican. [cheers and applause] >> jimmy: so obviously, your physique is what got a lot of people interested in you. what is the plan for the rematch? do you lose weight? do you stay right here? >> i want to get in better shape, look like a mexican aj, get those muscles into. just stay healthy and watch with the food and all that. >> jimmy: well, congratulations. that was some fight. that was unbelievable. you get knocked down, and you knock this guy. it really was quite a fight. and congratulations to you and good luck in the rematch. that will be in november or december? >> november or december, that's the negotiations. but whatever, whenever it's going to be, it's going to be a hell of a fight. >> jimmy: if it's in december, i hope santa brings you a victory.
i'm ready. but, clearly, i'm a little nervous. there are so many expectations. like, on the sticker, uh, that's . but i heard no gas gets better mileage than chevron with techron. yeah, no better mileage. it's proven. so that's a confidence builder. it's proven; no gas gets better mileage than chevron with techron. care for your car. so much for my new car smell, guys.
