tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC December 23, 2021 11:35pm-12:37am PST
dan: we appreciate your time. have a good night. >> announcer: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, ben affleck, jay ellis, and music from the record company. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: well, thank you, thank you. thanks for coming. hi, everybody. i'm jimmy, i'm the host. thank you for watching at home and from our studio audience. the reason there is so much testosterone flowing through this audience, thanks for journeying all the way from logan, utah to be here. whe e ll is ga utah he way [ laughter ]
tonight, our studio audience is part of the team or coaching staff for the utah state aggies, who play the oregon state beavers saturday in the first, and let's be honest, probably last ever jimmy kimmel l.a. bowl. [ cheers and applause ] welcome, everybody, thanks for coming. i don't know if you've been to hollywood before. but as you leave, please hand your wallets to the spider-men waiting outside. [ laughter ] the game will be broadcast on abc. you know how at the start of college football broadcasts they have the players introduce themselves? maybe share a fun fact about their lives? well, we decided to do that too. and with that said please welcome your 2021 utah state aggies! gentlemen? [ cheers and applause ] >> logan bonner, quarterback. i built myself a girlfriend out of legos and then she dumped me. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> justin rice, inside linebacker. i love the smell of kittens. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
>> savon scarver, wide receiver. i'm missing my holiday baking shows for this. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> kash gilliam, striker. i let the dogs out. sorry, baha men. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> marcus moore, defensive tackle. my dream is to open the first dave & busters in space. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> derek wright, wide receiver. i have no idea what an "aggie" is. nobody does. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well done. very well done. i hope this is a fun week. do you guys get to meet mitt romney if you win? [ laughter ] is that how it goes? for those of you who think i'm making this up, i'm not. this is a real college bowl game. somehow, i got the naming rights. never before has a bowl game been named after a human being.
the winner of the game, instead of a trophy, will get a belt. which -- this belt specifically, which i think is pretty great. [ cheers and applause ] you can't wear a trophy. by the way, if you do get one of these, you have to fight john cena in april at wrestlemania. [ laughter ] i know you guys are very young, but many years ago there was a college football player, a great college football player named o.j. simpson. ever heard of him? [ laughter ] o.j. went on to do big things. and as of now this week he was discharged from parole for good behavior. his lawyer said, "mr. simpson is now a completely free man," which are the scariest eight words i've heard since "the call is coming from inside the house." [ laughter ] what a year. everything is closing back up because of omicron, but o.j. can now go anywhere he wants. [ laughter ] the nfl is getting hit with another surge of covid. more than 70 players tested positive this week, and it's only wednesday. the rams are down nine players. they're saying a lot of teams this weekend might be short-handed.
this feels like the set-up for a movie where a bartender who busted his leg in high school gets to play quarterback for the jets and leads the team to victory? [ laughter ] well, no, the jets are not going to have a victory. [ laughter ] but another team. starting today, another new state mask mandate is in effect in new york and a number of cities, you have to show proof of vaccination to get into bars or restaurants. and that led an angry group of protesters in queens to have a sit-in at the cheesecake factory. six people were arrested after a large group blew past the restaurant's host stand, they refused to show proof of vaccination, they sat down at several empty tables. the nypd had to come, and the rest went like this. [ crowd chanting: let them go ] >> a way to get involved in the movement. make reservations tomorrow for cheesecake factory. once they're booked solid, start at the next one and the next one.
we're going to shut down cheesecake factory, shut it down. >> jimmy: yeah. let me tell you something, lady. you will never shut down the cheesecake factory. [ laughter ] this is not an ordinary restaurant. they don't mess around. their menu is 500 pages long. [ laughter ] you think you can outhustle a company that offers crispy crab wontons and cheeseburger spring rolls? i don't think so. [ laughter ] that factory will be cranking out cheesecake until long after you and i are dead. it may even be the reason you and i are dead. okay? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i know we call them anti-vaxxers, but i get the sense there are other issues at play there as well. christmas is coming very soon. and while some businesses have resumed hosting their annual holiday soirees, the white house is not one of them. the white house is skipping the annual holiday parties because of covid this year. and because joe biden goes to sleep at 4 p.m. [ laughter ] this is in stark contrast to the previous white house's "catch the holiday fever"-themed droplet jamborees. [ laughter ] we are gearing up for the
holidays at my house. our 7-year-old daughter this morning asked alexa, "alexa? is santa real?" and we just sat there like, oh, what is she going to say? i mean, you don't know if that smarty-pants little robot is going to blow your cover. thankfully, even though they're competitors in the delivery business, alexa is on team santa. she said, "all i know is that someone has been eating all my cookies." and the kids were like okay. could be santa. could be stoners. we don't know. [ laughter ] you know, it's interesting. the idea of gifts and santa claus and all that stuff is so ingrained in us as americans we assume it's the same all around the world, but it isn't. other countries have very -- even wildly different traditions, so we decided to make a game of it. we gathered some people from different parts of the world and asked them to tell us about their holiday celebrations. your job is to guess whether what they are describing is a real christmas tradition or got it?ng we made up.- all right, here we go. >> so in the catalan region of spain, everybody buys these
little figurines for their nativity scene called el cagane, it means literally, "the defecator." so it's a little shepherd who pulls his pants down, squats, and takes a nice crap. that crap fertilizes the land so everybody in the community can enjoy the wealth and abundance of christmas. >> jimmy: okay. so do we believe that is true or not true? real or fake? [ audience responds ] we're about half and half here. let's find out. >> believe it or not, that tradition is true. that's why we say "holy [ bleep ]" during the christmas season. >> jimmy: i like baby jesus better, i don't know. so that was in spain. now we go to mother russia. >> in russia, around christmas time and new year, the santa claus come for good children. but there is a baba yaga. half creature, half woman.
comes for people who misbehaved, and children too. so she flies in the barrel, and she uses this broom as a stick shift to a house in the deep woods. has huge chicken legs. and if you're trying to escape, you cannot, because the house run after you, grab you, and put you back. you never can escape. so you better behave. >> jimmy: all right. so is that real or fake? [ audience responds ] pretty much everybody -- one guy saying it's true, two people. let's find out. >> this story is a true story. russia's a crazy place. >> jimmy: now we know why putin is so paranoid, because of baba yaga. [ laughter ] shall we do one more? this story comes from germany. >> where i'm from in germany, on christmas eve, these two people come to your house.
it's santa and the christ child. and santa is the scary dude in a waxy mask with gloves and an empty potato sack and a big old stick. and before they come to your house your parents told them all the bad things you've done so they'll know everything. the name of your pet you didn't feed, everything. so santa comes with an empty potato sack, and he threatens to take you to the forest for a year of hard labor. and they usually push things until tears flow, then they back off a little. then the christ child, which is sometimes a woman, sometimes a man, with a veil and a wedding gown, gives you a little cookie. it's kind of a good cop/bad cop situation. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: all right. is that real or fake? [ audience responds ] most saying fake? all right. let's find out. >> this is 100% real. that little boy in the picture about to pass out, that was me when i was little. merry christmas. >> jimmy: and to all a good
nightmare. that's one of our camera guys here at the show. baird. weirdly, that's only the second most disturbing german holiday tradition he told me about. ask him about krampus, that's a good one. this is funny. this happened not too far from us in a town called monrovia, where an inflatable reindeer got an unpleasant visit from a bear. >> jimmy: look at that. kind of cute but also, he's now rudolph the dead-nosed reindeer. [ laughter ] didn't seem like the bear was having fun. right? the reindeer's pregnant, by the way, so that'll be fun. [ laughter ] one more thing, guillermo, you ready for one more thing? >> guillermo: i'm ready, jimmy. >> jimmy: okay. as another year comes to a close we do what we set out to do so long ago. we bleep and blur the big tv moments of the year whether they need it or not for all 12 months of 2021.
it's this year in unnecessary censorship. >> that chorus of voices across languages and continents, we hear a common cry. a cry for [ bleep ]. simple [ bleep ]. >> turn to the person next to you and give them a hug. someone you don't go. go [ bleep ] somebody. go ahead and spread it out. [ bleep ] spreader. it's an [ bleep ] spreader event. >> so beautiful. >> beautiful, yes, in its way. >> no, i mean [ bleep ]. >> oh, my. >> just amazing. >> i know they are different tastes. and i also know you have hard [ bleep ]. soft [ bleep ]. i don't know if that makes a big difference in whether the [ bleep ] feels differently in your mouth. maybe we don't want to go down this rabbit hole, michaela. >> my old sponge bob t-shirt was covered in [ bleep ] stains. >> i can tell you myself that i've [ bleep ] five [ bleep ]
and i arrived monday morning. i've already had [ bleep ] five times. >> take me to dinner before you go -- >> anybody got a pack of smokes? ♪ i'm thankful for the birds way up in the sky ♪ ♪ and i'm thankful for [ bleep ] ♪ >> catherine, some good [ bleep ] there, thanks. >> thank you so much for having me. >> for more information on catherine and her [ bleep ] you can go to her website. >> let me ask you, mr. angelone, show me your [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: all right. hey, you know what? we've got a good show for you tonight. jay ellis is here. we have music from the record company. and we'll be right back with batman, ben affleck. >> dicky: abc's "jimmy kimmel live," brought to you by consumer cellular.

♪ >> jimmy: tonight from the show "insecure" on hbo jay ellis is with us. then later, from right here in l.a., their album is called "play loud," music from the record company on the mercedes-benz stage. [ cheers and applause ] tomorrow night, neil patrick harris and daniel ranieri with music from ed sheeran and elton john. our first guest is a double oscar-winner who teams with fellow batman george clooney for the new movie "the tender bar." it opens in select theaters friday and premieres on amazon prime video january 7th. please say hello to -- oh, you know what? i'll let snoop introduce him. >> ben a-fleck. ben affleck, my fault. >> jimmy: here he is, ben a-fleck! [ cheers and applause ]
♪ >> jimmy: you got travolta'd by snoop dogg. >> yet another indignity. i thought at least i've come this far. >> jimmy: thank for being here. i know you're very busy promoting "the tender bar." >> yes, cool, man. i love this movie. it's really about stuff that's really close to my heart. it's about the heroic work of single moms and how important dads are and about how like whatever the kind of constellation of your family is and how flawed you are sort of you have to work through this stuff and be present in kids' lives and love them and give they can sort of be good, happy, healthy people. you know? it's been a lot of fun. >> jimmy: and the soundtrack is really good too. >> it is a good soundtrack. >> jimmy: you make it sound so serious. i love this movie too and i didn't see any of that stuff. >> yes. it is -- it's so close to my
heart. i had a chance to do an interview with a friend of yours, howard stern. >> jimmy: i listened to you. >> really cool, like long-form, in-depth, you know, two-hour interview. and because the movie is about a family and all this stuff that's meaningful to me, we talked a lot about my family, you know. divorce and alcoholism and struggling with real things and how you have to be accountable and loving, how i work with my ex-wife and how i'm so proud of the way that we work together for our kids, the best that we can for them. the irony is i was really happy with it. >> jimmy: it was a great interview. >> i was thrilled. i thought, wow, i should do more honest, exploratory, self-evaluating things. then i start seeing all this stuff come up on twitter. and i was like, what is this? and i sort of researched through and it saw one of these websites had done the click bait thing, you won't believe what he said, click on this, come to our site. i looked on it, and they had literally taken the conversation that i had had for two hours and made it seem as if i was saying the exact opposite of what i had
said. i had gone on, said how much we respected each other, cared about each other, cared about our kids, put them first. and went through our stuff. and it said that i had blamed my ex-wife for my alcoholism and that i was trapped in this marriage. just made me out to be the worst, most insensitive, stupid, awful guy. and i -- look, i know people do this. i get it. me, i'm happy to be sad batman, i'm happy to be dunkin' donuts and the meme. [ laughter ] i have to understand you have to get married to jimmy kimmel sometimes. really, it's about my kids, i got to just draw a line. >> jimmy: right, of course. >> i'm really clear. like, that's not true, i don't believe that, it's the exact opposite of who i am, what i believe. and i would never want my kids to think i would ever say a bad word about their mom. >> jimmy: this really upset you. [ cheers and applause ] >> it hurts my feelings, man. >> jimmy: i noticed that, i saw that online. it was crazy that they take this tiny little piece and then they -- wait, are you saying the media sometimes takes things out of context?
[ laughter ] >> occasionally. it feels like it used to be like, you know, okay, you slept with the prostitute, you had to go on the talk show and say, well, you know -- >> jimmy: right. is that what you're telling me? [ laughter ] wow, this is going to be some click bait tomorrow! >> i know. >> jimmy: yeah, and then you have -- >> now it's like you can have the most pleasant, honest, real conversation, be kind of vulnerable, and no matter what you say someone can just -- >> jimmy: they make you regret it. >> put it up there. i know we've all read the thing, you won't believe it! you go on it, inevitably you're disappointed. like oh, i thought i was going to read something horrible and scandalous and negative and hs just boring. >> jimmy: right. >> even being the subject of that is just sort of the cost of doing business a little bit as an actor, but not with my kids, don't do that, it's wrong, it hurts me and the family, stop that. [ applause ] >> jimmy: last time you were here you said on the air that you knew where tom brady was going to go after the patriots.
and then you told me during the commercial. and it was wrong. [ laughter ] >> it was. >> jimmy: what i want to know is -- can i ask a question, please? [ laughter ] >> yeah, go ahead. >> jimmy: were you lying to me? or was he lying to you? go ahead. >> that was a test. >> jimmy: that was a test. >> there's a leak. and i planted several different items. >> jimmy: i see. >> with several different people. >> jimmy: uh-huh? >> whichever one leaked, then i knew they were the source. >> jimmy: i see. >> spy trick. >> jimmy: do you remember which story you told me? >> you were the chargers. >> jimmy: i was? >> am i right? >> jimmy: half right, you said the chargers or the raiders. yeah. so you were seeing if i was the leak? how dare you? what am i, some kind of a maxipad or something? [ laughter ] >> i have nothing to say about that. >> jimmy: yeah, you can't say anything, great. now howard stern ruined it, he took everything from you, i have nothing left to give.
>> no, howard was great. >> jimmy: what do you give j. lo for christmas? how do you shop for a woman like that? you can't get her boots. [ laughter ] >> my problem is i'm still trying to work on your present. i have my priorities. you come first. >> jimmy: you get nothing. >> what do you give the man who has -- well, not everything. >> jimmy: the leak? maybe some adult undergarments would be a good gift for me. no, i have a lot of things to ask you. >> oh, gosh. >> jimmy: batman. it all seems so trivial after the first half of our conversation. but -- >> but we're accustomed to that. >> jimmy: let's go for it anyway. so you're batman in the flash movie, we know that, that's something you can confirm. >> i can. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: michael keaton is also batman in the flash movie. is george clooney in the flash movie? and just tell it, because you know if the shoe was on the other foot he would blow it and tell about you, right? >> he definitely would. which is why i can say, no -- if he is, he hasn't told me. maybe he thinks i'm the leak.
>> jimmy: so it's not possible he wouldn't tell you because you guys spent, i don't know, six months together shooting this movie. >> i mean, it's possible. he may be very guarded. as far as i know, he doesn't want to -- he doesn't want to return to that level height of cowl ears. i don't believe he's in the flash movie. i didn't even see michael keaton. >> jimmy: is it possible he didn't tell you because you are the leak? [ laughter ] are tobey maguire and andrew garfield in the batman -- in the flash movie? [ applause ] wouldn't that be something. when we come back, we're going to see something. there's this kid named daniel who's actually going to be here tomorrow night on the show. and we found him, it was a viral video, because he's this little boy, he was cursing up a storm with his mom. and after that happened george clooney reached out and said, hey, i saw this kid, you have his information? maybe i might want to put him in
this movie. and sure enough, he plays your nephew through this whole movie. >> he ended up literally being the star of the movie from your show. >> jimmy: and he's great. >> you're a starmaker. i thought this was the last stop!

i saw you in the yard playing sports. you're not very good. and probably not going to get a whole lot better. so might be wise for you, in order to avoid tears and disappointment, and above all delusion, to find some other activities that you like, you know? what do you like to do the most? >> i like to read. >> i also like to read. i'm good at sports too. but -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that is ben affleck and a kid named daniel in "the tender bar" which i really loved this movie. i think i'm almost exactly the age that kid is in the movie. to see all that '70s stuff.
>> i'm very close to that age too. i remember the advertising, the cigarette machines, the props, place.aseball teams are in what- it was like -- and daniel is spectacular. you should discover more actors because he's amazing. mockery of acting in general. a- because this kid comes out of of nowhere, he records this viral video where he's cursing up a storm. and then george puts him in this movie just like that. >> i'm like, you're going to start this trend where everyone's going to swear on youtube to become a star. 7-year-olds lining up, "[ bleep ] your mother!" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's pretty much exactly what it was. so from the set you guys had -- daniel was on my show. i took a liking to him. it was almost exactly one year ago. it was almost to the day one year ago that george saw him on the show and asked for him. as a christmas gift i wanted to send him a ps-5. right? they didn't have -- like nobody had one. i was trying to call sony to get one, it was hard to get one.
i think i wound up buying one on ebay for way more money. >> you're like, $10,000? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: in the meantime i start getting videos. these are just a couple of the videos that i get. >> so you were on the jimmy kimmel show. >> yeah. >> yeah? >> and he [ bleep ]ed me, didn't give me the ps-5. >> he [ bleep ] you and didn't give you the ps-5? >> he promised it to you? >> yes. >> what did he do? >> he didn't give it to me. yeah. he [ bleep ] me. >> jimmy: how old is this kid? >> he was 9 there. i feel it was actually appropriate. >> jimmy: so then i go, we got to get this ps-5 for this kid. we get the ps-5, i don't know how we did it, whatever. >> it was pretty quick. >> jimmy: this is the video i get. >> you finally got your playstation? >> yeah, but jimmy kimmel [ bleep ]ed me again, he didn't give me any games, what the [ bleep ] am i supposed to do with a playstation without any games? what the [ bleep ], [ bleep ], [ bleep ]. >> what the [ bleep ]? >> what the [ bleep ]? [ applause ] >> something oddly charming about that.
>> jimmy: i was really surprised. i assumed the kid would be cursing through the whole movie, but he barely curses at all. like that had nothing to do -- >> nothing to do with the part. no. it's just like appealing. i don't know. when my son does it, i find it a little less appealing. >> jimmy: you don't like when it your own kid does it for sure. >> he's really good in the movie. >> jimmy: he's great in the movie. >> incredibly like this ability to be natural. that's what's evident, really. it's not the swearing. it's that he seems so authentic. everybody else, the actors are like copying daniel. >> jimmy: he's going to be here tomorrow night actually, and i think maybe george is going to zoom in with us to -- >> i assume he's zooming in for mine? >> jimmy: no, he will not be zooming in for yours. [ laughter ] >> so he passed on mine and he went -- >> jimmy: he wasn't available, let's just say that. [ laughter ] speaking of george. george is your director in this film. you told me something, i thought it was interesting. we were at your charity event -- >> which thank you very much for doing that, appreciate it. >> jimmy: in las vegas. of course. you said that you learned a lot from george, doing this movie.
i want to know what you learned exactly from him. >> i mean, it's hard to sort of sum up except that like, working for a guy who's done what you are trying to do, done it so well for so long, and who can communicate -- >> jimmy: done, meaning being an actor, gone on to be a director? >> he's watching your performance and he'll say -- i don't want to give it away. tere's a scene that always made me cry. my character's obsessed with having a car. and he keeps telling the kid that his whole life. it's a little spoiler. but at the end he gives him a car. and every time i read it i would tear up. i was emotional. i came on set, ready for the day. thinking all the feelings, my kids growing older. how it would feel. we do the first take and i'm like trying not to cry. give him the car. george says, cut. comes over to me. i'm thinking he's going to -- it's good, right? he goes, "yeah. um. it's fun to give someone a car." all right, let's do it again. those kind of notes, they can change the whole scene, make it so much better.
and it's just so perceptive. you can do it, you can play it. it's not like a director who says i think it's more red. oh, okay, good. >> jimmy: he's also probably one of the few people who has given multiple individuals a car. >> he really knows. [ laughter ] most of the time it's fun. >> jimmy: well, it's great to see you. sorry you had to deal with that stuff. just stop giving interviews, only come here, we never talk about anything interesting. [ laughter ] >> listen, don't tempt me. yeah. >> jimmy: i think everybody should see it. it's called "the tender bar." it opens in select theaters on friday. nationwide on december 22nd. then you can watch it at home on amazon prime video starting january 7th. ben affleck, everybody!

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ jay, welcome. >> thank you. >> jimmy: last time i saw you i think was right before "top gun" was supposed to come out. >> yeah. >> jimmy: it was like 14 years ago, right? >> 15. >> jimmy: 15 years ago, a long time. you got delayed by covid and
everything. >> yeah, it's been a while, man. it's three years now. >> jimmy: three years. >> since we started this movie. but it's been amazing. the anticipation for it obviously has been amazing. we're excited for it to come out in may. >> jimmy: wouldn't it be fun to just never put it out? [ laughter ] have the anticipation go on and on and on? >> people just ask me about it over and over again? >> jimmy: right. well, it's a good thing tom cruise doesn't age. >> no. >> jimmy: that's probably working in your favor. >> he doesn't. but i'm getting older. [ laughter ] he doesn't age, but i do. >> jimmy: no, you look great. you play a fighter jet. you're too tall to be a fighter jet pilot, right? >> i'm right at the limit. >> jimmy: did they put you in a fighter jet, teach you how to do it? >> yeah, they did. tom actually created our entire flight training program before we started. >> jimmy: of course he did. [ laughter ] >> then he generously gave us flight lessons for christmas. >> jimmy: he did? >> yes, he did, which was absolutely amazing. >> jimmy: were those optional? >> you know. [ laughter ] you know tom. no, they weren't optional. but it was also amazing. we got to do -- i probably had
about 45 hours' worth of flight training before i even got in an f-18. >> jimmy: oh, you did? >> yeah. >> jimmy: that's pretty good. then you get in the f-18 and that has to be -- >> yeah, there's no preparation for that. you get in the f-18 and you didn't sleep the night before. it's like going to school for the first time and you know you're going to see a girl that you want to talk to, you're running all the scenarios in your head. that's what it felt like in my mind, just go with it. [ laughter ] finally you get all the gear on-u get in the cockpit, you're sitting there like yeah, baby, we're about to do this. i'm about to go 1,000 miles an hour. i'm about to be a movie star. and you sit there for 45 minutes. while they wam the jet up, run all these checks. you start to realize that you shouldn't have drank water before you got in the cockpit. [ laughter ] because you cannot get out to go to the bathroom. you can't be like hey, guys, i've just got to hop out real fast and run in and use the bathroom. that's not how it works. >> jimmy: there's no bathroom in the back, right? >> there's no bathroom in the back, yeah. then you take off and it's
absolutely amazing. you feel the forces as the jet hits its afterburner, you fly back, you take off, and it's this smooth glide up in the air. and you see the valley. we were shooting over. and about five minutes into my flight i realized i had to pee. really bad. [ laughter ] and wash job who was my -- his call sign is wash job, who was my pilot. he's like hey, man tlrksz a bag in your pocket. just pull th bag out and pee in the bag. this is a very normal thing because there is no bathroom in the cockpit. this is a very normal thing. reach down, you grab the bag -- >> jimmy: what kind of bag is it? >> it's about that big. it's got these little granules in it. you pee in it, and it's supposed to become a solid. then you're supposed to tie it up, put it in your bag, throw it away when you get on the ground. i did some of that. not all of it. i pull the bag out and i'm like i can't -- i can't get it in, where do i -- he's like, hey, man, i'm flying the plane at 700 miles an hour. you're going to have to figure
this out. [ laughter ] i can't help you pee, i can't come back there. i pull it off. open my vest up. i open my pants up. finally i get it, tie it up, put it in my pocket, go and have an absolutely amazing flight. we get back on the ground. your adrenaline is so high. you're excited. you want to tell everybody what you did. we would go to meetings afterwards where we would watch our footage from what we just shot in the air. and it's about 45 people in the room watching this. it's pilots from "top gun." production crew, tom cruise is directly across from you. our oscar-winning editor and our oscar-winning dp is also sitting next to you. i'm sitting there, i start eating, because i want to get some energy back in me or get refueled. and i take out my bag and put it on the table. and tom was like, well, tell me about your flight. i was like, i peed up there. how did you do that? so i went through the whole thing. and i was like i didn't do this, i went like this. it went in. he goes, what's that bag? oh, that's my pee.
why did you put your pee on the table next to your food? could you please take your pee out of our production meeting? so i did. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: well, it's rare that you get a note like that from a tom cruise, i'm sure. >> that is -- yeah. >> jimmy: does he pee -- he doesn't pee in the bag? >> no, tom can control every muscle in his body. [ laughter ] at all times. >> jimmy: wow. that's crazy. do you guys have like an oily scene with all the guys playing volleyball? >> san diego probably ran out of vaseline and olive oil and argan oil -- >> jimmy: multiple lubricants? >> every oil possible, also evian water spray. so we were very -- very oiled up. we have a very similar scene that we trained for -- this is the only shirtless scene in the movie, and most of us did not eat for like four or five months straight. >> jimmy: just to look good in that scene? >> yeah, you had to look good in that scene. everybody talks about the volleyball scene. so we were like oh, this is our version of the volleyball scene, you have to look amazing. right? >> jimmy: right, yeah.
>> we go, we shoot it, it's a beautiful san diego day, the water's warm, the sky is warm, it's absolutely beautiful. we wrap it, we're all super excited because we're hungry and haven't had carbs in like six months. [ laughter ] miles teller brings a pack of beer so we can celebrate we shot this thing. we have a good time. we go out that night, we go to this wing place, pizza place. everyone's eating like just scarfing their faces with stuff. the next morning we get to work and they tell us that we have to reshoot. [ laughter and moans ] we have to reshoot the scene but won't do it for like another two or three weeks. so we all have to start our diets all over again. >> jimmy: oh, that is -- that's absolutely cruel. >> yeah. it was cruel. people cried. [ laughter ] not me. >> jimmy: not you. >> i have no emotions, but people cried. >> jimmy: who cried? can you tell us? >> i don't want to do that. >> jimmy: speaking of crying, you have two episodes left of "insecure." >> yeah. >> jimmy: does anybody die on a peloton?

do you have -- is it going to be a big ending? >> it's a great ending. i'm super happy with it. it's been such an amazing journey. but i do think, like, fans are going to be -- they're going to be -- like very hard line, one side or the other. >> jimmy: interesting, all right. it's great to see you. thanks for coming. the show is "insecure."
