>> can we talk about your movie "big stone gap"? >> yes. >> so you shot this movie in a small town in virginia. >> she was born and raised in big stone gap, virginia. lots of characters there, they're all lovely, and we -- >> what's your character? >> the movie's set in 1978. and i play the mobile book librarian. i got to drive a big truck. my character's drunk at her own wedding. i'm obsessed with row mance and love, and i want my best friend played by ashley judd to find love. it's a hilarious and touching movie. i haven't seen a dry eye at the end yet even from men of the and in this day and age where it's hard to find movies that you can take multi generations to and enjoy the characters.
i've got dudes crying, i'm embarrassed, and your daughters. my little boys saw the movie. >> how old are your kids again? >> 5 and 8. >> because you're big instagram that little -- >> every now and then. leaf blower. >> there they are with their little leap frog tablet and dancing and having a good time. >> are you strict with them or not at all? >> he's laughing so hard he can't even breathe. this is what we do before school at our house. [ laughter ] it was, and then my mother-in-law was doing her own version of it. yeah, it's not a quiet, boring household at our house. >> did you picture self as a mom and a wife? >> always, always.
>> 25? >> uh-huh. >> that's like 150 in hollywood. >> i met him in 1991. and we've been married 20 years, and i always knew i would be married and have children. children. i'm really, i'm a great friend and a great mom, i'm not a good wife. friend. >> you can't be everything. >> you can't be everything, but i'm pretty awesome. >> you are. you know who else is pretty awesome? selena gomez was out on the plaza today that girl can sing. >> i can sing an a little better, but she can really sing good. >> she -- >> look at this! >> she can also move. she has a cute tattoo. >> that plaza was packed. i know it's a holiday, but, and did you notice every phone's up, like, >> oh,. >> it is really hard to watch the concert, because you're looking through a screen. but it was terrific. she can move.
she can sing. she's beautiful. >> she hit a nerve with the generation, many generations, actually. >> she has. >> you can't help but admire competence, anyone who's competent at what they do. >> there you are. you've been working all morning. >> what i like about her, she doesn't care. she lets it go. some people are buttoned up. they like things just so and she seems to have a bit of a looser attitude. >> i think when you have an abundance of talent and confident in that, you are not so protective of every moment. you have enough confidence to let it rip. >> you have confidence. is this the first time you've hosted? >> it is. >> you are so awesome. >> you know how if you're nervous about flying and you know that pilot is great, they seem really competent, it's like, oh, it's going to be okay. you're awesome. i feel welcome here. >> so daniel craig. this is, as you know, he has
and this, the fourth one opens next month. so everyone, he did an interview recently, with i think "time out london", and the reporter asked if he wanted to be james bond again, and this is what he said. i would rather break this glass and slit my wrist. >> you have to do it with the accent. >> i would rather break this glass and slit my wrist. >> that was terrible. i'll do it in a southern accent. >> i want to move on. >> on who should be the next bond, you know what he said? >> he didn't give a boop! >> what do you think when you hear something like that? >> i can speak from both sides. i can say as a person, normal person in the world like take away the fact that i'm an actress in hollywood and
whatever as my parents raised me, i say, all right, dude, you're a bondman, like, okay, just be grateful you're employed and, but then i also understand like, ah! getting it. and then the second one and then the third one, and then the fourth one, so i understand creatively how you may be like, i'm over it, but you don't necessarily, think you just have to know the company you're in and know your audience with anything in life. you have to know your audience. so maybe in that interview with that journalist he felt very comfortable and was like, dude, i'd rather slit my wrist, i can't take it anymore. >> were you ever in an interview where you were, like, oh, my gosh, i can't believe i did that. >> i've been doing this sense i was in my mid-20s, and there's a learning curve. i'm just glad i did all that before social media so that all my mistakes were not transmitted
across the universe in five seconds. i've kind of learned my lesson. >> it seems like every stumble gets captured and repeated a thousand times. >> i think a lot of those people attacking the artist or whatever, if we turn the light on them and if you were to put an investigator and follow them around in their private life, you'd see some serious, questionable behavior. >> yes. >> and it's a lot of the pot calling the kettle black. if you start pulling the string as to who's behind all of these thins, there's a lot of people equally guilty of their own discreditable acts, and i think that's where parenting comes into play and why i love big stone gap, that town in virginia, because these are people who would give the shirt off their back for you. they're so jen genuine and kind and warm, why do we have to have campaigns about kindness and bullying? why can't we just have parents raise their children and show respect. you don't always have to agree, but you can have respect.
>> speaking of respect, i want to put this question out. question. what time can you start calling someone's home? i think about -- >> you mean as a stalker? as a dating thing? [ phone ringing ] >> is it, when do you think it's okay? 9:00? 8:00? 7:00? >> is it saturday morning and your friend was out partying the night before? or touch base the day before, are you going out? when should i call you? or if it's a mom, you know they're up at 6:00. >> a welcome break. >> what's the latest you will call anybody. >> i won't call anyone past 7:30. i might send a text. i put my phone on silent when i go to bed. or maybe 8:00, i won't call. i wouldn't want it done to me. i try to do the golden rule. the >> this woman said that she had
loose weekend plans, she found there was a movie playing at 10:00, called her friend, the woman got upset, why are you calling me so early, slammed the phone down and they haven't spoken since. >> is that really your friend? >> and the social cues guy says 10:00's not too early to call, just apologize. >> if you're not up by 10:00, unless you were really doing charity work during the middle of the night at the hospital then you're off the hook. >> i want to say hi to my sister's friends visiting from overseas in dubai. how are you? >> doing well, doing well. >> it's good do see you guys. thank you for coming to see us. >> thank you for having us. >> feeling a hot flash come on, by the way, you know what? >> i'm starting to have those. thank you for that. we have some music, some wine, chocolate. >> chocolate? where's the chocolate? >> it's coming. the world's greatest nation, to solve the world's

you have a needle, and there is something in it. what's the difference between what you're doing now, which is obviously putting a filler into abbey's face, and just what people do to fill in laugh lines and that kind of thing. >> that's a great question, hoda. the main difference is the type of filler it is. it's really a newer brand of fillers, different than filling lines or little areas, these are powerful, rich, and capable of filling and giving a robust difference in a very short period of time. >> half of it's done and half of it isn't. you did this siderite here, straight face. okay. you did the right side. >> i mean my right, yeah. her left side. okay. so you did that side. was it painful? >> not at all. not at all. not at all. >> these fillers actually have numbing medicine built in within it. as you go, it really numbs the

like it, it's reversible. there's something you can put in there to break it up. >> your body absorbs that? >> if you undo it? >> it breaks down. the substance breaks it right out. melts away. >> and how long will this last? >> this will last approximately two years, which is another difference for these fillers. most line from nine to 16 months >> are you all right? do you like the first half that he did? >> so far so great. >> we're going to take one more look at abbey's before and after before we sign off today. guess who's here! >> could it be adrianna kajani? all right, we'll talk to her and
