"jimmy kimmel live," sarah jessica parker. >> have a good night. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- sarah jessica parker. from "black-ish," daveed diggs. and music from dan and shay. and now, and why not -- here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: very nice. i'm jimmy. i'm the host. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. i don't want to spoil the mood but here's a warning. on do any of you go online?
oh, good. it's a tech-savvy group. then you probably know. every year intel comes out with a list of the most dangerous celebrities. these are people who in you search for them online you're most at risk for getting a virus or malware or the mumps. this year the most dangerous celebrity to search is amy schumer. justin bieber is number two. and number three is carson daly. which a lot of -- i know carson, i tell you something, once we were at a restaurant, there was no ketchup on the table, he murdered the waiter. [ laughter ] this was at brunch. he's a dangerous guy. last year i was the 26th most dangerous. before that, in 2014, i was number one. i was the number one most dangerous. this year i've plummeted to number 32. which is still a dangerous number. that was o.j.'s number. [ laughter ]
the sad fact is i'm not as dangerous as i used to be. guillermo, do you still feel like i'm dangerous? >> guillermo: yeah, jimmy. especially when you don't eat anything all day. >> jimmy: especially when i don't eat. anyway. donald trump got some bad news today too. according to "forbes" magazine, donald trump's wealth is down $800 million from last year. he's only worth $3.7 billion now. and i'll tell you something, mexico is going to pay for it. [ laughter ] but the good news is, while his net worth may be down, his self-worth is at an all-time high. [ laughter ] trump was in florida last night. today he was in chicago, iowa, and wisconsin. and with all this racing around ranting and raving, we like to help donald slow down. we did just la for tonight's edition of "drunk donald trump." [ tape playing very slow ] >> see that plane? see that plane?
that plane was built in america. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yesterday, in case you didn't know, was national register to vote day. . did any of you see that video katy perry made? she gets naked and tells people to register to vote. it got like 6 million views already. hopefully it encouraged people to sign up. but here's the thing. why does katy perry have to get naked to get us to register to vote? i mean, don't get me wrong, it's nice of her to do it, i'm not against it. [ laughter ] katy perry getting naked for any reason. but anyone who needs katy perry to take her shirt off in order to register to vote should not be allowed to register to vote. and what if the strategy works? what if it's effective and millions of people do vote because of katy perry's breasts? what will they do next time to get our attention? next, in 2020, if you register
to vote, ariana grande will give you a [ bleep ]. [ drumroll ] >> jimmy: are we allowed to say -- i guess we'll find out. everybody line up one at a time! and listen, when you get to the front of the line, have your pants down because ariana has a -- voting is not something you should have to be sexually excited to do. it's our responsibility as americans to register to vote, to go to our local polling place, and make a choice between two people nobody can believe are our only available options. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i feel like we're maybe one or two elections away from having our next president come from the ufc. [ laughter ] if you thought the debate was free-wheeling, the ufc had a press conference yesterday to promote, they're having their first-ever fight in new york city, ufc 205, conor mcgregor
versus eddie alvarez. conner took a question from the crowd and this is part of the reason why the ufc is more popular than boxing. >> take a look around you. you've got a lot of champions, grizzled vets. who do you think would give you the hardest fight of anybody on stage? >> right here. the hardest-hitting 145'er right here. this guy, when i knock people out, they don't [ bleep ] move. >> who the [ bleep ] is that guy? >> jimmy: it's a good question. that would be a debate. meanwhile, here in california we have a couple of new laws on the way or potentially on the way. governor jerry brown just signed a bill that will require websites like imdb, which provides information about movies and tv shows, to delete an actor's age if the actor requests it. imdb will no longer be allowed to include an actor's age as part of their biography.
which is great news for people who have never heard of wikipedia where you can get that position immediately. [ laughter ] what an important new law! i'm glad actors can now have their lawyers remove their ages from imdb. until now all they've been able to do is have their doctors remove it from their faces. [ laughter ] there's a proposition on the ballot here in california, prop 60, that will require adult film actors to wear condoms. i assume this only applies to the men. to the male? is this a -- that's a sexist thing, the women don't have to wear condoms, why should the men? if the proposition passes, producers say it will chase business out of the state and cost the porn industry millions and millions of dollars. how does the porn industry still make millions and millions of dollars? as far as i know, no one has paid for porn since 2006. [ laughter ] it's free now. and i will add this. for those who are upset, haven't
we stockpiled enough condom-free porn to last, i don't know, a few hundred thousand more years? it's a weird law. if it passes how are they going to enforce it? will somebody have to monitor? i would give that job to meter maids, to the parking people. they're very hands-on. they're on top of it. this is an exciting time to live in california. november 8th we get to vote on porn stars and pot. we might as well change the state flag to a no fear tank top, we really should. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] california is more prone to earthquakes than any other state. you have to be prepared. if you really want to be prepared and you have $6,000 laying around, you might want to invest in one of these. ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ >> jimmy: and if you're not found quickly, it makes a very sturdy coffin for you. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i've always wanted a suffocation machine. here's another ridiculous new product. nissan, the car company from japan, unveiled their latest driving technology this week. and this is not a car. it's a self-driving chair. this is a chair that moves on its own. they're saying this could revolutionize laziness as we know it. [ laughter ] self-driving charles. don't we already -- i think these are called wheelchairs, right? [ laughter ] i mean, we have these. here's an interesting statistic about driving. according to department of transportation the fastest-growing group of americans behind the wheel are people over the age of 85.
85-plus. they're the fastest-growing. and the slowest-driving group. of all the -- i guess people are living longer and they're more alert. with so many super seniors continuing to drive, the auto industry is doing its best to appeal to this emerging new market. >> are today's cars just too complicated? the backup cameras, touch screens, and gpss? isn't it time there was a car for you? introducing the jitterbug car. from the makers of the cell phone your son forced you to buy comes a car that does only what you need it to. with features like fm radio. a speedometer that tops out at 25. and a left-turn signal that never turns off. click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click. >> what? >> the all-new volkswagen jitterbug.
available at walgreens. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: they really have everything. we have to take a break. when we come back from the break, my cousin sal, guillermo, yehya and i took aunt chippy to medication class. she's very high strung. it did not go well, but stick around! with this level of engineering... it's a performance machine. with this degree of intelligence... it's a supercomputer. with this grade of protection... it's a fortress. and with this standard of luxury... it's an oasis. introducing the completely redesigned e-class. it's everything you need it to be... and more. lease the e300 for $549 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing.
demanding. >> jimmy: bossy and demanding. angry, she yells. >> guillermo: and crazy too. >> jimmy: crazy too. so we decided we wanted to help her learn to relax. so cousin sal, guillermo, and our pal yehya and i took her to a class where they teach meditation. here's how that went. >> everything requires stairs. doesn't anybody know what an elevator looks like? >> jimmy: aunt chippy's already mad. >> does anybody have an escalator in their building? >> jimmy: she doesn't like stairs. she gets very upset. >> everything in california is uphill. even downhill is uphill. >> guillermo: it's good for you. >> jimmy: you see why we're here? >> yes. >> jimmy: this woman is stressed, right? >> we're going to come in, learn meditation, center in the breath, calm ourselves. >> jimmy: all right, let's try it. come on let's have open minds here. >> when i first met the students i was a little nervous. because they all came in a
group. and i was aware that there would be camaraderie. and they might have a hard time sitting still. >> i weigh almost 200 pounds, you want me to sit like that? i can't even get down. >> i cannot move my leg like you, is okay? >> that's fine. in meditation we choose a focal point. in choosing that focal point, we calm our system down. think of meditation as the ocean. right? deeper and deeper within sun's self. >> you know andy? >> andy? >> the india guy, you remember the guy gandhi? >> gandhi, yeah. >> you've been with gandhi? >> jimmy: what? >> gandhi, the india guy. he's very famous. >> jimmy: i know, i know. >> the guy, what's his name, he make the movie "gandhi"? >> jimmy: ben kingsley. >> i got picture with him, he got with me, very nice guy. he did the movie in morocco.
>> jimmy: what movie does this remind you of? >> deep, deep, the movie "deep." the ocean -- >> in one movie i'm going to drown you in that ocean. >> jimmy: see that, she snapped. >> i want a peaceful family to go along with this -- >> absolutely not. it's really inside. what's happening inside. >> jimmy: inside it's marlboro cigarette smoke. >> inside it's marlboro cigarettes. >> guillermo: pollution. >> jimmy: we need to get aunt chuppy unpolluted. there is a quick way to do that? >> breathing. breathe all the way down to the belly. >> all the way down to here. >> yeah. >> jimmy: why are you feeling each other's bellies? >> guillermo: i want to make sure he's doing it right. >> me too. >> i don't know about anything else but the smell in this place is really nice. >> sal: quiet, please. >> what did he say that idiot? >> jimmy: he said, quiet, please. have you ever heard so much talking in a meditation?
>> never. definitely never. i was taken with how observant chippy was. i really felt that she was hyper-observant. she didn't need to voice all of her observations, but the fact that she noticed them is step one to meditation. so when we're communicating we want to use eye language. instead of saying, you did this, you did that, we want to say, i feel this way when. >> jimmy: i think you ar loudmouth. like that kind of thing. >> i think you're a [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: is that right? >> is it working? >> sal: i think your eyelash is going to fly off. >> so let's close our eyes. >> jimmy: oh, yeah, right. we're supposed to -- >> go back. >> jimmy: okay. >> you want to breathe. in and out. >> guillermo: that's what i want, in and out. >> if i start drooling will you please wipe my mouth? >> yeah. >> jimmy: do you make meditation
tapes? because my aunt chippy is available for voice-over work if you need someone with a soothing, melliflulous -- >> melodious. >> why don't we focus on something that brings you joy and happiness. >> smacking them in the head brings me a little joy. smack the crap out of these two kids. >> jimmy: that's a good question. have you ever enjoyed a sunset? be honest. >> yes. your uncle went to hawaii and left me home. and brought me a video of the sunset. he spent -- freaking nuts, you crazy bastard! are you [ bleep ] crazy? you wonder why i want to smack the [ bleep ], [ bleep ] -- >> sal: i don't want to hear about the sunset. >> you made me deaf in one ear! >> jimmy: i feel you're being very negative toward my cousin right now. >> sal: thank you. >> you little [ bleep ]. you do that again, i swear to
god i'll knock your teeth out of your mouth. >> sal: i'm going to knock -- >> i swear to god i'm going to knock your teeth out of your mouth and i'll feel good about it. >> jimmy: i think we made a breakthrough. the tequila's taking over. >> laughing meditation, which is a thing. >> jimmy: that's right, i've heard about that. >> he's in a laughing medication. >> guillermo: i knew that. >> a sense of joy. >> jimmy: it's making me happy. >> guillermo: i'm very happy most of the time. >> jimmy: see that? you could be like that. if you weren't so bitter and negative. i mean, i'm sorry. i think you could be like that if i -- you weren't so bitter and negative. >> so we've only meditated probably 30 seconds totalling. maybe we should just bring it back to the brett for a minute. breathing in and out of the nose. and with -- we should probably
put the cell phone -- >> sal: i have a lot of money on the san francisco giants. >> we're actually not allowed to have them in here. >> i'm going to try this. i'm going to really try this. >> jimmy: yeah. we had almost four seconds of silence there, i think that was a record, that was good. >> do you feel that stillness? that quiet? >> you son of a bitch. >> jimmy: aunt chippy -- >> no physical violence. no physical violence. >> jimmy: you can't do that, no physical violence. >> do you have to bang that thing in my ear! >> that wasn't okay either. >> jimmy: she does make a good point. >> what the hell's the matter with you? >> so there were a lot of firsts today. i've never had that much talking. i've certainly never had a student actually use a disrupt tool to awaken or deafen another student. so that was definitely a first.
as was the violence for sure. the hitting. >> as you can see -- >> sal: we're done. let's be done. >> we're done! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we apologize to everyone. we have a good show tonight. music from dan and shay, davide diggs is here. be right back with sarah jessica parker! >> dicky: portions of "jimmy kimmel live" brought to you by rinnai solutions. ♪ one smart choice leads to the next. ♪ the new 2017 ford fusion is here. it's the beauty of a well-made choice.

my just imagining that or do you rarely come out here? >> well, i am not often in los angeles. but in my younger past, i spent a decent amount of time here. not intentionally, though i was happy. >> jimmy: uh-huh. [ laughter ] >> but there was a period of time where there was a huge amount of work here. and so i came out here for a job. and -- actually the first time i came out here was for square pegs. >> jimmy: right, i remember that show. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: jamie gertz was on that? >> right, tracey nelson. at that time, i lived at the really quite chic establishment that oakwood garden apartments. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. i used to live right near those. >> it's really a fine -- >> jimmy: it's for those who don't know, and most people don't know, every actor -- it's like the pool filter of
hollywood. you at some point get stuck in it, right? >> yeah, i think it's sort of like a milestone in a career. but at that time i was a young girl and i was living there with my mother because that's where we were told by the -- by louis v. mayer, the studio system. it seemed to me it was a beacon for those who were just divorced. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. >> men of a certain age. >> jimmy: because it's furnished, yeah. >> yeah, like an efficiency apartment. i remember thinking like, i feel like i think he likes -- i feel like maybe he likes me. you know there were a lot of men who seemed so available. that was my first home here. >> jimmy: great. >> it was brief. it's a high bar, high bar. >> jimmy: sure, yeah. >> then i came here and i was working as an adult. you know, with like -- you know, like a legitimate adult. and i lived here. then i kept getting work. and we continued. there was a fellow -- i was dating, i was -- >> jimmy: the guy from the
laundry room? >> yeah, that was just like an amusement -- i found a real man. and so we kept getting work here. and then one day, we bought a home here, actually. >> jimmy: oh. >> which i'm certain we couldn't afford. then one day i said, it's time to go home. like, it always felt temporary here. >> jimmy: are you originally from new york? is that your hometown? >> sort of, kind of. i moved there in 1976. >> jimmy: you started acting when you were a kid? >> yes. >> jimmy: how old were you when you started out? >> i was 8. >> jimmy: you were 8 years old. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: and -- that's just an unusual thing just to start with. just the idea that even your mom would say, like yeah, this is a good idea, let's go do this. >> i'm not entirely certain she thought it was. but there was an ad in the paper. actually at the time, living in cincinnati, ohio, a mecca of entertainment. >> jimmy: yes. >> and actually -- >> jimmy: you and george clooney, i think. >> yeah. but actually, i shouldn't make
fun. cincinnati -- i really mean this -- is a fantastic city. >> jimmy: it's a great city yeah. >> there was a ballet company, a symphony, a regular wonderful theater, a philharmonic. but there was an ad in our paper, our little local paper that said they were looking for someone to play the little match girl. i don't know yes thought i should audition but i did and i got the part. >> jimmy: you did, right away. [ cheers and applause ] >> they paid me. >> jimmy: and you got paid? >> it was for nbc. nbc used to make their sort of after school specials. do you remember after school specials? >> jimmy: oh, yeah, i wish they would bring that back. >> fantastic. there was always an important lesson to be learned. >> jimmy: the boy who was trapped in a wall and swallowed a nerf football. >> i remember that one. i don't remember that one. >> jimmy: mom, i saw you smoking, that kind of thing. >> yes, yes. just basic civility, decency, how to exist in the world, you know, and make friends. >> jimmy: we learned so much from those things. >> i did one called "the almost
royal family." i think it was a girl who overheard her parents saying that they had inherited a small and worthless island. and therefore she assumed she was -- it was official, she was part of a monarchy. and so she got a big head, see. she went around town losing all her friends. and i think she was -- i think maybe people had to curtsy and things. >> wow. >> but i was 19 or 20 when i played that part. >> jimmy: but that was an important lesson. if you overhear your parents talking about an island, a worthless island -- >> not necessarily. >> jimmy: don't jump to conclusions. i have to look that one up. that sounds like a good one. >> it was good. >> jimmy: have your kids seen -- they should watch that, they could learn a lot. >> i don't know if they're gettable. what do you do, pull up or pull down when you go to the internet? >> jimmy: it depends already. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: sarah jessica parker, "divorce" coming to hbo october 9th. i was kind of expecting this to be a heavy show. because it is about divorce. but it is a very, very funny show. you must be very happy with the way it came out. >> i am. i'm really -- it's not my nature to say, but i'm really proud. i'm really proud of it. >> jimmy: you should be. [ cheers and applause ] >> everybody. it's -- i mean, you know, because you wanted to do something different. the world existed, right, that you wanted to be part of. this world. >> jimmy: yeah. >> but you knew you wanted to do it differently. tell your story differently. it always sounds rather simple. but getting it right feels like an enormous achievement. >> jimmy: well, it is. especially coming off a show like "sex and the city," which is one of the most beloved television shows of all-time. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you probably have a million different things you are
offered. and then you said, okay, now i'm going to do this. and i'm going to be the executive producer of this show as well. and for it to come out the way it did must be very, very satisfying for you. >> it's thrilling. >> i was thinking about something weird about you today. because at the emmys, you see -- >> were you pulling up? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: kind of a rotate. you see so many movie stars now doing television shows, i think you were the first movie star, as far as i can remember, and i thought about it for a while, who was -- still had a thriving movie career, who decided to do a tv show. is that correct? with "sex and the city"? >> i never had characterized it like that -- >> jimmy: you should. >> i'm going to tell everybody that i had a thriving film career, and i was a pioneer! [ cheers and applause ] everybody followed along late to the party! well, i guess i always was just sort of -- i mean, i just wanted to be a working actress.
in fact, when i did the pilot for "sex and the city," anyway, that was very flattering of you, by the way. >> jimmy: but it's true. it is true. tv was a disgusting cesspool. [ laughter ] >> you know, it's interesting at the time, hbo was -- i have to think way back, get in a time machine and go back. hbo was pretty much a male-dominated -- it was a sports network, a network for boxing and important live sporting events. i think they had a couple of scripted shows but those were male-dominated. "dream on," "the football show." >> jimmy: right, right. >> it kind of felt both odd and really intriguing to go work for a company that felt sort of under the radar in terms of like telling a scripted story. so it didn't feel -- it just -- i don't know. i thought it was an interesting role that i loved that script. when i finished it, i completely
forgot about it, i went on, did a play, whatever. i ran into somebody on the street and they said, i saw your show. what show? you did a show called "sex and the city." and i was like, oh, right. >> jimmy: really? >> i was like, right. you saw it? i haven't seen it. she was like, it's great. i was like, oh. then when they said, we're going to do it, i was like, i don't know. i don't know, i feel like the moment passed. i feel like maybe i'm not so keen to commit. but i was foolish and the people wisely talked me out of it. >> jimmy: right. >> went to set and never looked back. it was an incredibly long answer to a short question. >> jimmy: no, i never would have imagined that. i figured you were all-in from day one. >> i was, absolutely, absolutely. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it's great to have you here. say hello to your husband. sarah jessica parker. "divorce," sunday, october 9th, 10:00 on hbo. we'll be right back with daveed diggs.

you made a lot of very famous people at the show. everybody wanted a ticket to the show. and there are so many pictures. i mean, i went through some of these pictures. who is this lady? >> i can't place -- i mean, she was really nice, i remember that. she smelled great. [ laughter ] no, oprah was amazing. that's a crazy thing. >> jimmy: can you see oprah in the audience when you're doing the show? >> you can't see her but you can feel her presence. [ laughter ] oprah, that's like being a concept. like meeting a singularity. >> jimmy: speaking of meeting a concept and a singularity, meryl streep. that is intimidating to be performing in front of -- again, do you know she's there? >> so there's a rule backstage that you don't tell. if you know, you don't tell anybody. i was usually fine with knowing. but it takes awhile for word to travel around. by that time you're already committed. >> katy perry before she took her clothes off for that video.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: this is a big one, you and barney rubble. >> yo, that was -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that's pretty crazy. >> that was what i freaked out the most. >> jimmy: when your family comes to the show, does that make you nervous? >> that probably -- when my close friends are there, because they're jerks and critics. >> jimmy: i see. >> like that makes me nervous. my mom was there every other week. >> jimmy: was she really? >> yeah, moms, you need "hamilton" tickets, talk to my mom. >> jimmy: does she bring one of her friends every time?

[ laughter ] >> i -- i don't know is the actual answer. i don't think so. >> jimmy: should we ask around? >> we were pretty out there. i think i shot my credibility long before i won the tony. being on broadway ruined it. >> jimmy: who else is in the group with you? >> two of my best friends, william hudson and jonathan snipes. >> jimmy: from growing up? >> yeah, i've known bill, he was my best friend in third grade, we met over a game of tag. >> jimmy: you were "it" and that's where you met? >> i was really fast. >> jimmy: when you went to -- you were with the group, then you went to broadway to do the show. what did the other guy -- were they mad? were they like, all right, already? >> they didn't tell me if they were mad, kept to it themselves. >> jimmy: they called me and said they were mad, they wanted me to mention it to you. >> yeah. the thing is we just -- we kept working. we kept producing things. >> i see. >> making music. we couldn't tour.
>> jimmy: right. >> which meant none of them could make my money. [ laughter ] in hindsight, yeah, they were probably pretty mad. >> jimmy: i'm sure you'll make it up to them somehow. it's great to have you here, congratulations, an amazing run on "hamilton," your character is very funny on "black-ish," i saw it today.
