[ laughs ] you know, when you've got them, you're supposed to stop? i didn't know that, so i kept going and i said, "oh, yeah, we're kind of a big family. in fact, tom petty and robin zander are my brothers too." all three of them. "you're lying. you're such a liar." and i had them. i had them. >> jimmy: you had them with daryl hall -- they might have -- but they were like, "wait, a second -- and tom petty?" >> i just -- i wanted it to be a big family. that would have been a great family reunion. would've been a very musical family, yeah >> but i'm grateful for the time period that i, in fact, was comfortably liked for a moment. and i thank you so much for your
amazing music. >> jimmy: oh, please, that's too -- [ cheers and applause ] that's just amazing. he's just the greatest. >> so great. >> jimmy: you did grow up -- your parents are very famous as well. famous actors. >> yes, my parents are actors and i -- >> jimmy: did you always know that they were actors? as a kid, is it hard? >> it was. and i didn't really clock it. i feel like we kind of don't know what our parents do until one day you sort of, kind of, get the picture of it. and for me it was, i was about 6 and watching a movie in the afternoon after school with my mom and my grandma and bette davis was standing at the top of a staircase with a hatbox, and suddenly, my father's head rolled out of it. which is an interesting dilemma at 6. >> jimmy: your father's head? >> yeah. my dad didn't have a good time. my father, actor bruce dern, had a tough challenge in that roll with betty davis. and so there his head lay. and my mother had to call him and explain that his head was intact, and this is acting, and that's what we do for a living. >> jimmy: this is my favorite story. >> so -- >> jimmy: you're 6 years old,
you don't know your dad -- is an actor, i don't know what an actor is, you're watching a movie and all of a sudden you see his head roll down a flight of stairs. yeah, that would be a little traumatic. >> it was a life of minor breakdowns or i had to become an actor to somehow wrestle with this. >> jimmy: and here you are with bruce dern and diane ladd, bruce dern and diane ladd, your mom and dad. you're all getting your stars on the hollywood walk of fame. [ applause ] look at that. look at that. isn't that cool? that's really cool. i mean, gosh, what an honor that is, huh? >> it was incredible. and i pay tribute to ben harper, my husband, who was there when ringo starr was getting his star. and the head of the chamber of commerce were talking about who they were going to honor, and he said, "have you ever done a family? like an acting family?" so, he sort of, i think, put the idea out and paid tribute to us in that way, which was awesome. >> jimmy: oh, i love ben, he's a good guy. >> he loves you and loves being at the show with you guys. >> jimmy: he's the greatest. >> but, it was really amazing for the kids because -- >> jimmy: -- the president of hollywood, that guy? the president of hollywood. >> oh, yes. >> jimmy: i love that guy. he is fantastic. >> i know, i love him. thank god there is a president of hollywood. i needed to know that. >> jimmy: isn't it fun?
i mean, it's a fun business to be in. that keeps it fun when you do these events, like that. you go, "oh, we're so lucky they have these jobs." >> and to see it through my kids eyes, they were so into it and so excited. >> jimmy: yeah, you do this because you end up with great posters like this for your new show. here you go. yeah, that's why you're in the business. this poster is all over new york city, by the way. and i love it because you just look -- you just -- mascara running down your face. >> i must say, a gentlemen last night came up to me and said, "i just want to tell you i get on the subway every morning and i look at your face and i just feel better about my life." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: new yorkers are the greatest, yeah. exactly, right? do you want to tell everyone what "enlightened" is about? >> "enlightened" is the story of -- we follow amy jellicoe, my character, who in the first episode you will see, has a very difficult day at work. and amy feels everything in an enormous way. some might refer to that as a rager, but i say she's just, you know, as mad as hell and she's not going to take it anymore. and she tells the truth and people aren't always comfortable with that.
so, as this explosion unfolds, she ends up going to treatment or recovery and comes back trying to live a more conscious life, which, you know, in the eyes of others doesn't work out so well. but i think, you know, it's genuine, but obviously -- >> jimmy: you're enlightened. >> yeah. trauma and hilarity. and eventually, i think, is determined to demand no more cultural apathy, but, in fact, get in the streets and say something about what's not okay in the world anymore. >> jimmy: i love that -- and it's written by mike white, right? >> written by mike white. >> jimmy: who -- i love that guy. "school of rock," he's just a great -- very funny but very good at dramatic stuff too. i love it. >> who acts in it as well. >> jimmy: that's right, acts in it as well. >> yeah. >> jimmy: a talented guy. i like the guy. we want to show everyone a clip. here's laura dern having a breakdown in "enlightened." take a look. >> i didn't do anything. you think -- >> oh, you liar. you [ bleep ] liar. you got to have everything? all those random fees and bonuses you told me they give
you. huh!? huh!? you have to have my [ bleep ] job, too? is that what it is? health and beauty is my department. >> you need to calm down. >> health and beauty is my department. health and beauty was mine. oh, [ bleep ]. i -- >> long story, i'll tell you after lunch. >> at least admit that it was you, david. tell me that you did this. >> i don't know what you're talking about, amy. >> you think i'm stupid. is that what it is? do you think i'm a [ bleep ]? [ bleep ] [ bleep ] [ bleep ] i will destroy you!

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, really? it is? oh, that's so interesting. thank you. that's weird.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: but, look, either way, it's the attitude he has that really -- that makes us all mad. >> i think that's what -- [ light laughter ] -- that's what elevates you to the status that you have achieved. >> yeah, you're getting universities to specify fair traded products for their students.
>> jimmy: can you explain fair trade, because i try to explain in my way and it never comes out too correctly. >> you know, fair trade essentially gets farmers in the developing world a fair price for the things that they grow. for the vanilla and the cocoa. [ applause ] >> jimmy: it's a huge thing. >> without fair trade, they're pretty much exploited and they get paid poverty wages. and thanks to you and your flavor, they're getting a decent -- decent living. >> jimmy: yeah, that's cool. you always -- i mean, when you set out to make this ice cream, you kind of always did charity stuff. you still do. you do so much, you allow so much giving. is that was just in your business model? is that in your head? is it all the weed? what is it all -- [ laughter ] -- that has got the vermont of it all? what is it? is this something you wanted to do, just be nice guys? >> you know, when we started, we didn't know anything about business. and so, we wanted to run a business the way two regular kind of people would run a business. and that involved being a good
neighbor and being -- you know, taking good care of our suppliers and it just kind of carries through. it turns out that it's good for business as well. >> jimmy: you know what i like about this? i give this to people now when i go to their parties. i show up with this. and i give it to them and i go, "just try it, and tell me what you think's in it." because no one will ever guess potato chips, you know, unless you watch our show, which no one does. and so -- [ light laughter ] i give it to them and they go, "oh, my gosh, it's delicious, what is this? it's kind of salty. is it malted milk balls?" or something like that? then you tell them it's potato chips and then you leave. >> how are you feeling about -- [ light laughter ] -- your photo? >> jimmy: back out, you just back out, have a black curtain drop. they act like you disappeared. >> well, because people are not expecting potato chip clusters and ice cream. >> jimmy: yeah, they're not. yeah, it's the greatest thing that's ever happened to us and our show. i love you guys. thank you so much for coming on. come back whenever you want to. and i should say -- [ cheers and applause ] hey, you guys, i should say ben & jerry are giving everybody in the audience a scoop of "late night snack" after the show.
