[ laughter and applause ] >> that's fair enough. >> jimmy: that made me laugh. a lot of them are good sports. i can laugh at myself, obviously. but i tweeted back at them, "i know that was probably a joke, but if flag football with the dallas cowboy cheerleaders is a a real thing, i'm in." [ laughter and applause ] >> i like it. >> jimmy: i don't know if that's a real thing, but they should think about it. >> it's good. i like it. >> jimmy: no, but they're good sports, and they're fun. did you go crazy, were you jumping up and down like chris christie was doing last week? >> we were. >> jimmy: were you? >> it was such a nail biter, you know? to be fair, i understand because i've had the honor of sitting with jerry jones for one of the games in his suite. and it is just infectious how excited he gets. he's such a fan. you know, he's a true fan. oh, yeah. and no matter if they're winning by a lot, he's still, you know, every great play, every touchdown, he's just so excited. >> jimmy: but you really get into it with your husband. you have this thing you do. is this true? because i heard this. you do a shot every time they score? >> so, i married into the team. my husband is a huge dallas cowboys fan, as is his father.
it's a family affair. and every time -- we have an arrangement, my husband and i. every time they make a a touchdown, we take a shot of whisky, which i think is fair. i feel like that's a good arrangement. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i mean, that's how fun "the bos" is to hang out with. i know. but, wait a second, that means last week in the fourth quarter, you did like three shots in ten minutes. or something like that. >> yeah, it was a good game. it was a good game. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: from what i remember, it was pretty fun. >> it was a good game, yeah. >> jimmy: absolutely, yeah. that's pretty cool. that's good. we'll see what happens. i mean, they're getting pretty far. >> yes, exactly. >> jimmy: getting to the end of the road here. >> we'll see what happens. >> jimmy: that's good. it's fun. we have the jets here and the giants, so we drink whisky no matter what. [ laughter ] [ cheers ] >> you're drinking a lot of it. >> jimmy: we're drinking a lot of it, yeah. for different reasons, yeah. but i will talk to you about "still alice". gosh, everyone is phenomenal in this film. you are fantastic. alec baldwin's great. julienne moore. >> oh, she's amazing. i mean, just to have a front row seat to see her perform,
honestly, is just incredible. >> jimmy: you've never worked with her before? >> i've never worked with her. i've known her a little bit throughout the years, and she's so wonderful and lovely. just incredible. >> jimmy: just so heartbreaking. >> amazing woman to look up to. >> jimmy: and it's based on the book "still alice". >> it is, by lisa genova. just an amazing book. i actually had read the book before i even knew they were making a film. >> jimmy: really? do you know anyone who has been affected by alzheimer's? >> yes, i do. i have quite a few people. it affects so many people. it's a beautiful movie. i think it shines a light on a a disease that affects so many people. julie is incredible. it really is. she's a tour de force. >> jimmy: everyone's great in this. >> very happy to be a part of it. >> jimmy: everybody should check it out. we have a clip. here's kate bosworth in "still alice". take a look at this. >> lydia, what time is your play? >> um, 8:00. >> lydia, are you nervous about tomorrow night? >> yes, i'll be fine once i'm up there, but i'll definitely block all of you out. >> i'm sorry. what time did you say it was again? >> 8:00. >> mom, you don't have to schedule it, it's okay. >> no, no, i want to put it in.
and where is it? >> the saugatuck theater. >> can you spell that? >> yeah it's s-a-u -- >> mom, it's not like we're going to forget to bring you. >> let her do it. >> s-a-u-g-a-t-u-c-k. >> anna, you're not helping. >> no, you're not helping. why should she worry about remembering something when she doesn't have to remember it? >> if you just let her do it, she won't worry. what's the problem? we don't have to talk about her like she isn't sitting right here. >> i'm not. i'm talking to her. aren't i, mom? >> yes. yes, you are.
