i'm dan ashley. >> thanks for joining us, jimmy kimmel live, jessica biel. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- jessica biel. from "moonlight", mahershala ali. dax shepard and michael peña. and music from sohn. and now, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome to the show. thank you very much. welcome to the show. i'm jimmy. i'm the host. thank you for watching. thank you for coming. what a day.
11:36 pm
it was an unbelievable day today. donald trump had a press conference to start the morning in which he covered a lot of subjects, but first the showers i want to talk about that are from the sky. it's day three of raining here in los angeles. rain all night last night and this morning, and whenever it rains here, i make a habit, i run right to my television to watch the local news because the weather reporters here -- there's no weather. it's like being a baseball announcer trapped in the month of december forever. you have nothing to announce. so when it does rain, they get very excited. and i then make fun of them. that's how it goes. apparently this is starting to make an impact, because i may have ruined a reporter's birthday today. >> happy birthday. >> the big 5-0. >> yeah. >> chris? >> i'm just trying to stay off kimmel this morning, that's all. >> well, first of all, chris,
11:37 pm
happy birthday. you seem like a nice guy, but unfortunately, you made it impossible for me to make that birthday wish come true for you today. >> chris boroughs in porter ranch forest this morning. happy birthday, chris. >> happy birthday. >> yeah. it's 42, by the way. it's not 50. we've -- not that the number matters. we've been monitoring the size of this puddle. [ laughter ] >> we have, not alone. imagine you spend your birthday monitoring the size of a puddle. sorry, chris. i hope the rest of your life goes better than it has so far. this has been a dizzying 24 hours of politics in the united states. last night in chicago president obama delivered his good-bye america speech. and today president-elect trump delivered his good-bye america
11:38 pm
speech. this was trump's first press conference in six months, and it went great. >> mr. president-elect -- go ahead. >> not you. not you. your organization is terrible. your organization is terrible. >> i have a question, sir. >> sir? quiet. quiet. >> go ahead. she's asking a question. don't be rude. don't be rude. >> can you give us a question. >> don't be rude. >> i'm not going to give you a question. >> can you -- >> you are fake news. go ahead. >> sir, can you state categorically -- mr. president, that's not appropriate. >> that was jim acosta from cnn trying to ask a question. trump doesn't like cnn right now so he's not answering their questions. who knew you could do that? what a press conference. it was like a live version of his twitter account. i've seen more civil exchanges for wrestlemania.
11:39 pm
his big announcement today was he's putting his assets, his company in a trust and the company will be run by his sons. kind of like when don korlioni handed things over to michael. no problems. one of the reporters ask if we'll ever get to see the tax returns trump promised to show us once his audit is finish and trump said no. other than reporters, no one wants to see my tax returns. he said that twice. i don't know. we have a good number of american citizens in this audience. a quick poll. who wants to see the tax returns? [ applause ] >> jimmy: wait a minute. are you guys reporters? no? all right. then we want to see them. in case you missed this press conference, you missed a lot, but we boiled it down to the key parts. >> sick russia, fake news, packing hillary, clinton. horrible, disgraceful.
11:40 pm
garbage, germ aphone. give me a break. you're fired. [ applause ] >> jimmy: going to be a good four years. donald trump press conferences is not unlike going to the bathroom. you know what you're going to get but you don't know exactly what it will look like. speaking of going to the bathroom, the scandal that is now known as golden gate online was a major topic at the press conference. i'm sure you heard yesterday u.s. intelligence agencies say they informed the president and president-elect that russian operatives claimed to have compromising personal and financial information about trump. there's a documented unverified document floating around that claims trump watched prostitutes do something disgusting on a bed in the ritz carlton, and this morning trump actually addressed that rumor and explained why it's not possible that it
11:41 pm
happened. >> i was in russia years ago with the miss universe contest which did very well, the moscow area. did very, very well. and i told many people be careful. because you don't want to see yourself on television. cameras all over the place. and, again, not just russia, all over. does anyone really believe that story? i'm also very much of a germ-a-phobe, by the way. believe me. >> i'm not a historian, but i think that was a first, i really do. and, of course, we don't know if the rumors are true. anyone could have written that document but trump denies it, putin denies and a senior russian official denied it on cnn. >> thank you for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. there is no truth to these disgusting and offensive allegations. i have personally interviewed all secret videos mr. trump.
11:42 pm
there was no pee. no pee on bed. not even on toilet. it was totally normal hooker sex party that never happened. >> jimmy: all right. i think that settles that. right? [ applause ] >> jimmy: this is my favorite clip of the day. not only is this a big story in the united states. it's big all over the world. as we learned from this french canadian news team, we don't have a translation for everything. [ speaking french ] >> the golden showers. >> jimmy: maybe french isn't the most romantic language. [ applause ] >> jimmy: you know, things are suspicious.
11:43 pm
maybe i'm turning into a conspiracy theorist, but it just so happens that this story comes out right before donald trump's new show is about to premier. you know about this? donald trump and billy bush have a new travel show that's premiering next week. >> the most popular come can di duo of 2016 is back. >> i'll tell you another thing. when i see a boob, i squeeze it. >> yes. the donald is the man. >> it's bushy and the donald across america. the former entertainment news reporter and the future president of the united states are reunited for more classic comedy from inside a bus. >> holy cow, did you see the legs on that one? hub baa, hub baa, am i right? >> love legs. love legs. love to kiss them. love to touch them. love legs. >> two men, one bus, and thousands of hours of locker room talk. >> i see a uterine wall, i'm going to touch it, and make mexico pay for it. >> yes.
11:44 pm
sha, wing. >> have these two ever seen a naked woman? it's unclear. >> come on, billy, let's go. >> find out this season on bushy and the donald across america. [ applause ] >> jimmy: i don't really -- we have to take a break. when we come back, the new ponch and john. dax shepard and michael pena will be here with the trailer for the new film version of "chips". stick around. we'll be right back. i'll have that goat cheese garden salad. that gentleman got the last one.
11:45 pm
sir, you give me that salad and i will pay for your movie and one snack box. can i keep the walnuts? sold. but i get to pick your movie. can i pick the genre? yes, but it has to be a comedy. a little cash back on the side. with the blue cash everyday card from american express, you get cash back on purchases with no annual fee. throw. it's more than cash back. it's backed by the service and security of american express.
11:46 pm

11:52 pm

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: it's very good to see you. it's been a long time. you had your premier last night, right? >> we did. >> jimmy: it was at the grove? >> right. >> jimmy: the grove is like the mau mall, right? >> it was fun. it's the mall. it was a little bit unusual. i feel like i've never been to a movie premier there, but it was nice. >> jimmy: as producer of the film do you have to pay for the
12:02 am
premier itself? >> no. i paid for everything else basically with my life, business, blood and sweat and tears. no, someone else is paying for that. >> jimmy: not only doesn't america know what a movie producer does. i don't know. >> i don't either. >> jimmy: it seems like people get out there and round people up to do it. and like matt damon is a producer on "manchester by the sea". there's no way he did anything. >> maybe not. i don't know. you're right -- >> jimmy: he's completely illitera illiterate. we didn't write anything. ben affleck wrote that whole movie. matt just typed it. so what do you do as the producer? what are your responsibilities and what did you take on? >> my responsibilities for this particular film was trying to get this thing going and we've been working on it for ten years. >> jimmy: funding? >> trying to get people to fund
12:03 am
it. trying to get cast. trying to get financers and distributors and then getting a crew together and finding the locations and making sure everybody is okay and happy and nobody hates each other and everyone is fed. you're doing all these little weird things to keep a giant machine running. >> jimmy: matt didn't do any of that. >> typing, anybody can do that. >> jimmy: and you did this and starred in the movie how many months pregnant? >> eight months pregnant. something like that. it was just crazy. >> jimmy: is that a good idea? >> no. it's a bad idea. i mean, you don't want to be doing anything when you're eight months pregnant, let alone living in new orleans during mardi gras, not partying with everybody else, really miserable. trying to get this thing off the ground which was an amazing experience, but, man, i could only shoot for five days.
12:04 am
i was there for the preproduction basically. >> jimmy: because why? because of the doctor? >> yeah. the time you can't fly past otherwise you could, you know, like let it go on the airplane and ruin everybody's flight. you'd have to land early. >> jimmy: they'd throw you in the back of a flat bed truck and drive you home. you don't want that? >> no. i had five days to shoot and i had to fly home and watch dalies as they did everything without me. >> jimmy: you're pregnant in the movie. was your character pregnant in the movie because you were pregnant, or -- >> yes. but it wasn't initially that way. this is taken us nine and a half years to get made. over the time period the script changed a lot. we did, like 28 rewrites on it. and she was pregnant. she wasn't. she was pregnant, she wasn't. we thought we can't do what we do to a pregnant woman in this
12:05 am
movie, but then we figured we have to do it anyway. >> jimmy: you have too because you're pregnant. >> otherwise we have to recast and it starts the process over with the producer finding another cast. who's going to play the part? it goes into a cycle. >> jimmy: like when carrie washington is pregnant in scandal, they put her behind a plant and she's carrying a basket. >> and a counter. >> jimmy: you can't do a whole movie like that. >> not really. >> jimmy: unless you call it behind the plant. >> that would have been a good idea. where were you when we needed you? >> jimmy: i wasn't called. >> you're right. that's my fault. >> jimmy: that's oh oh on you. >> i'm the producer. that's on me. >> jimmy: it is. you also have a restaurant you opened. i've been there. >> what do you think? >> jimmy: i think it's a great idea and fun and a great place. it's a restaurant at which you can -- and if you have a little kid, i have a two and a half-year-old daughter, you basically walk in the restaurant and they check your kid like a
12:06 am
coat. they give you a ticket and you hand them your child and then you go eat. every once in a while the kid runs in and grabs chicken fingers and runs back out covered with sweat. >> this is the idea. >> jimmy: and the title of the restaurant is good as well. >> it is good. oh fudge. >> jimmy: is that going well for you? >> it is going well. honestly, the restaurant business is way harder than being a producer. >> jimmy: it is hard to make money in the restaurant business, yeah? >> we're not making money. definitely not making money. nobody's making money in the restaurant business in my experience, at least not yet. we just felt like it was something that my friend group, my friends who had kids before i did we wanted to go hang out but they were stuck going to chuck e cheese birthday parties or kids and not a babysitter. there's nowhere to go. this was created for moms and for ladies who want to and families who want to go and have a safe, delicious thoughtfully
12:07 am
sourced meal, drink, we have a full bar there, and have your kids watched by people younger and cuter than you. it works out for everybody. >> jimmy: what's the difference between an opeur and somebody watching? >> oh fudge, oh pair sounded better than oh fudge, babysitter. >> jimmy: they're just there to watch the kids? >> that's right. >> jimmy: it's a very good idea. chuck e cheese is like my vision of hell, really. >> yeah. >> jimmy: you go in and the colors are overwhelming, and then it smells like shoes the whole thing. >> it's not nice. >> jimmy: and then they say we're going to top it off with the worst pizza in the whole world. >> aren't you having fun now? >> jimmy: that's a good -- we're going to take a break, when we come back we'll see a clip. it's called the "book of love"
12:08 am

can eat fudge. i'm confusing your projects right now. >> that's okay. >> jimmy: your husband justin timberlake did scoring for the film. >> he composed the whole score. >> jimmy: had he ever done anything like that before? >> never. he hired people to do that. but basically he and his partner, mitch, who this wonderful musician, mitch. they put everything together kuz using keyboards and guitars and then they put together a massive string section and horn section and those are conducted by the conductor, and they recreate the music but with all the parts of an entire string section in an orchestra, and he hires the guy to write all the parts. >> jimmy: so he's the guy who writes the music itself, and then you're the person who hired him. >> that's right.
12:15 am
>> jimmy: let's say he puts some music to a scene and you watch it and go -- did it ever happen you said this doesn't work? you need to change that and was that weird for you? >> yes and no. i have a producing partner, and he's very good friends with her. her name is michelle purple. anything i didn't like, i would just say, i love it, baby. and then i would say, michelle tell justin you don't like that. >> jimmy: that's how hollywood works, right. nobody speaks directly to anybody else. >> why would we be truthful? that's weird. >> jimmy: is he aware you did this? >> he is now. everything was so great. he worked really intensely with bill, our director, and those two would sit in the studio and hash the music out for days and bring it to michelle and i. we would listen to it informal everything sounds amazing to me. i don't know. i'm not the expert, but he's the expert. and bill would just take him in this direction or put him in
12:16 am
that direction. everything was amazing. >> jimmy: your husband is almost annoyingly talented. >> yes. >> jimmy: i don't know if you know this, but there's this gym that's near your restaurant, and my wife goes there. i dropped her off one day. i was looking in the window, and i saw this big photograph on the wall, and so i said, i asked the guy gooi wwho runs the gym. i said i love that photograph. >> i know the gym. >> jimmy: of course. i said where did you get that whatever, and he said justin timberlake took this photograph. and i was like you've got to be kidding me. i said i would like to get a print of this)ézg@t photograph. so then through some mutual friends that we know, they contacted justin and he said, yes, sure, i will -- >> you have one? >> jimmy: no. he didn't give it to me. >> i'm going to make this happen for you. >> jimmy: you're his boss. >> i am the boss lady. i'll make this happen for you. >> jimmy: tell him i have a big
12:17 am

12:25 am
