"the stuff i read about myself blows my mind. shouldn't i get to do all these
things since i'm already accused of them?" #doublejeopardy. when he went on to say other things about drinking. >> he did? >> he was in an interview with this woman -- he dropped a lot of weight since he got divorced. a lot of people go the other way. when you get divorced, you gain weight and turn into a blob. >> did you ever see the movie "the blob"? >> no, i didn't. anyway. blake sat down with this woman named katy cook of tmz and he was talking about the weight loss. he basically says the reason he lost all of his weight is because he had to push a lawn mower. take a listen. >> one day in the middle of crisis and chaos with my personal life, i walked out and i was thinking, what's going on in my life? what the hell is going on with my yard? it's like, are you kidding me? it's three feet tall out here. what happened?
>> you've lost like 20 pounds. it must be a big yard. >> well, it's like a push mower. why do i even have a push mower? what am i doing? aren't i somebody? somebody? >> doesn't he have somebody to push the lawn mower for him? >> he goes, why don't i have a rider? but i have a push mower. >> or a landscaper or gardner. >> i think he likes to do his own stuff. >> i've heard him admit that his life was -- they all just seem so blase about it. you know, what, we tried, it didn't work. we waved from our tour buses at each other. it wasn't much of a marriage. so they seem to have the most amicable divorce ever. >> and they both seem to be doing well. if you read about miranda and blake, he's lost weight, she's lost weight. she looks fantastic. >> amazing. so there you have it. >> what are the rumors?
that he's dating gwen stefani? >> that's what people are saying. they do a little flirting on the show. >> it's show business. >> it is. >> we see flirting around here all the time. doesn't mean much. >> unless a few people are on and then it does mean something. have you ever gone to the gym and you're decked out and all you have to do is get on the machine but somehow you find excuses or reasons not to get right to the workout? buzz driver's license fe buzz ld s of the ways -- here we not stepping on the machine until you have the right song or playlist picked out. >> what if you're watching tv? >> or that. or wait for the right channel. i sometimes get on the stairmaster and i click around or trying to download something to watch. that's a waste of time. >> you in -- now got at 5:00. >> and i'm out by 6:00. but in that hour, i'll look around.

she's a hollywood legend and one of the most recognized entertainers in the world. >> we're talking about the great julie andrews. she made her film debut in the disney classic "mary poppins" which earned her an academy award.1 >> she didn't deserve it. >> the following year, the hills were alive as julie portrayed maria in "the sound of music," the highest grossing film of 1965. >> and in 2001, julie came back to the big screen in "the princess diaries" alongside a then-newcomer anne hathaway. she and her daughter, emma walton hamilton, are ruling the scene with their new book. it's called "a spooky sparkly halloween". >> my god, what an introduction. >> i know. is this the ninth -- >> it's the seventh. >> actually, it's the eighth but the eighth isn't out yet. >> in other words, you'll be back next week with the eighth

initial impetus -- >> the embodiment? >> yes. and we love to be able to hopefully empower girls and boys to let their sparkle out. >> why is that important? what are you noticing with your own daughter? >> it's tough to be a kid anytime. >> harder than it was -- >> definitely. the books are all about what makes you sparkle. the fact that she's a princess, it's nothing to do with outward glamour. it's what's really inside. >> and with common core and all that's going on today, it's hard for kids. >> when emma was a little girl -- >> was she in touch with her inner sparkle? >> as far as i was concerned, i thought she was. she was a great, great kid and put up with a lot because mom
w was busy and traveling. >> i remember one year being a spider and going with my friend back to back, one head -- >> what is your answer to the word that there's going to be a new "mary poppins"? >> i'm kind of interested in it. it's not going to be the recreation of the original "mary poppins." disney has long had, i think, about seven stories that they've had in the vault of the "mary poppins" series. so i just think they think, why waste that? and after 50 years, which it is since it was made, it's about time, i guess. >> what about anne hathaway? people are saying she may be the one. >> who said that? she sings wonderfully. and she's so talented. >> isn't she great? >> she can do anything.
>> the other one i heard was emily blunt. >> i think you should play their mother no matter who it is. >> oh, thank you, darling. whose mom? or mary poppins' mother? i wonder if she had a mom. >> everyone has a mom. >> i'm sure about mary poppins. >> your children's book may be turned into a tv series? >> we are so excited about this. a wonderful production company has optioned "the very fairy princess" for a children's animated series. >> congratulations, ladies. we'll see you in a week. >> we wish you great luck. not that you need it. these books are all terrific. >> thank you. >> it's a pleasure. i just gave it to a little girl for her birthday and she was thrilled. from fairy princesses to a modern-day night.

you play an immortal. >> he is a semiimmortal. what we find out about him -- good morning, everyone. he cannot be killed but he can die. i think that was the producer's caveat to be able to fire me if i cause too much trouble. but he got a disease and he went away. >> and you have a nice cast that you work with, rebecca romijn. >> and noah wile wiley. >> it's lovely. i paraphrase it as harry potter meets indian jones. >> where did you shoot it? >> in the environment of portland, oregon, the northwest. the studio out in the woods somewhere that we used, the main library set. but we use all the environments around -- >> a long way from home. you were born in new orleans, raised in the ninth ward.
>> i was. >> we were totally connecting in the commercial break. do you miss it? >> yes, i do. i once described new orleans as a big wet magnet that you can sort of move away. but it's always tugging on you. >> a lot of cities don't have a soul but this one does. >> it has a huge soul. growing up, i think any kid that grows up and has the kind of ambitions that i did about acting and stuff, you want to pull away from your hometown. so it wasn't until i left that i realized it was a special place -- i realized it was special. but it's unique. all the bars aren't open 24 hours a day everywhere else where you get a good gum bow at 3:00 in the rest of the world? >> did you love reading when you were a kid? >> yes. i grew up as an only child, a single parent. so my mother worked downtown new orleans on canal street selling clothes for a living. >> and you bought her a house when you first started making money and you said, mom, where
do you want to live? >> i did. the ninth ward where i grew up was changing and i said, go pick a house. and because of how she grew up in new orleans, metairie was her nirvana of suburbia, so she got a little house out there. >> we're going to play a game with you. >> show my ignorance here. >> no. we're going to create an action movie tag line about a famous book and you tell us what the book is.
