tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC December 27, 2018 11:35pm-12:37am PST
for sandhya, >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, jennifer aniston, chris elliott and bridey elliott, plus music from rita ora. and now, watch this, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: hi. thank you very much. very nice. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching, thanks for coming. it's great to have you here. thank you for joining us. thank you. i'm glad you're in a positive mood because it was a day of mourning for many here in the united states as we said good-bye to our 41st president,
george h.w. bush. you know, hundreds gathered at the national cathedral today in washington to pay their respects, including all the living presidents and leaders from around the world. president trump was on very good behavior today. [ laughter ] this is interesting. the bush family reportedly had to promise donald trump that no one would say anything mean about him at the funeral to get him to come. for real. [ laughter ] they said no one would criticize in their eulogy, which is too bad, because i bet jeb had some great zingers ready to go. [ laughter ] that was not the case at senator john mccain's service where there is there was some anti-trump sentiment. in the spirit of togetherness the bush family respectfully requested anyone speaking at the funeral please avoid the following words and phrases, and i have them here. donnie dumb dumb. grab-ass grandpa. putin's peepee pal. melania's mistake.
this one is tough. eric's dad? big orange turd. and finally fatty mclittlehand. [ cheers and applause ] those names will now be on display at the bush presidential library in college staying, texas. yesterday trump visited former president george w. bush at blair house, which is the white house guesthouse, just around the corner from the white house. maybe 250 yards away. for whatever reason, donald and melania drove there in a limo with a motorcade. 250 yards. we're about a month away from him riding around the white house on one of those rascal scooters. not only did he drive, basically right across the street, you see him getting out of the car and greeting george w. when he got out of the car, he had -- if we can pan down, he had two tiny limos on his feet. [ laughter ] to scoot around once he got out. the distance between the white house and blair house so is
short, an eighth of a mile. bring me that map. >> guillermo: give me one second. >> the chihuahua is on the move. ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: is all of this necessary? >> guillermo: you can never be too careful. >> jimmy: oh, okay. just give me the map. >> guillermo: what map? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: go back to your spot, all right? >> guillermo: let's go, boys. >> the chihuahua is back on the move, the chihuahua is back on the move! >> jimmy: well, okay -- so unfortunately i don't have the map. but you get the idea. it was very, very close. that by the way cost us $28,000. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
this was the scene when the trumps arrived at the national cathedral this morning. you can see donald and medical melania were escorted to the front row. and melania shakes hands with president obama, shakes hands with michelle obama. bill clinton gets in there, hi, melania. trump has a seat, shakes hands with barack and michelle. the look from michelle is so frosty she may have reversed global warming right there. hillary stares straight ahead like she's on an elevator with a weirdo. [ cheers and applause ] it was really something. like all of america's divorced parents together in the same room for the first time. [ laughter ] that was some row. let's look at this again from another angle, because there really were so many notable people in attendance. the trumps, mike pence, the obamas, prince charles, angela merkel was there, you can see dick cheney was in the
background. even c3po showed up. apparently he and the former president shared a dorm room in college. so what an event. president trump had bigly problems to think about during the service. the special counsel last night released the long-awaited sentencing memo for trump's former national security adviser michael flynn. most of the memo was heavily redacted. you can see. [ laughter ] that's real. that's no joke, that's what they put out. usually when something is that blacked out it's testifying before congress to become a supreme court justice. [ laughter and groans ] >> jimmy: thank you. [ cheers and applause ] by the way, i like that pattern. with a few slight alterations, this could be the new american flag. [ laughter ] or if you turn it sideways, maybe donald trump's prison. [ cheers and applause ] anyway. hey, for those who like to make little characters with their phone, apple, you'll be happy to
know, has recently added more than 70 new emojis. a lobster, a skateboard, a llama, which is great, because if you wanted to text a friend to tell her you saw a llama eating lobster on a skateboard, you had to write it all. [ laughter ] there are a number of new food-related emojis, including a bagel. that's the bagel emoji. a salt, a lettuce, which will never be used for lettuce and will exclusively be used to communicate that you need weed. [ laughter ] they added a moon cake emoji, i guess a traditional holiday dessert in china. stuffed flatbread. you know what food they don't have an emoji for? meatballs. there's no meatball emoji which is nuts. they have two emojis for nuts. if you make a list of the top 20, at least top 50 food items,
meatball would have to be honored, right? yet there are hundreds of food emojis, no meatball. so we got in touch with the people who actually decide this kind of thing. there's an organization, for real, called the unicode emoji subcommittee, a real group that they will decide whether the emoji is approved for consideration or not. and i asked them to help me get the meatball, the emoji it so richly deserves. hi. >> hi. >> jimmy: how are you? i'm jimmy. thanks for having me. >> sit down. >> jimmy: okay, i will. thank you very much for seeing me. i'm here for a very important reason. >> i'm here to help. >> jimmy: thank you. what is it that you do? explain your position and job to
me. >> i'm one of the vice chairs of the uni code emoji subcommittee, i'm also a cofounder of emoji nation whose motto is, "emoji by the people, for the people." wee try to make inclusive and representative emoji. >> jimmy: what shape is the world? >> it's round. globe. >> jimmy: can you think of other things that are round and wonderful? >> you mean a lot of balls, a lot of sports? >> jimmy: balls are great. what are some of the best things to eat? >> from my opinion? >> jimmy: yeah. >> i mean, i grew up chinese-american. >> jimmy: me, too. same here. [ laughter ] general tso's chicken. >> jimmy: what's that made out of? chicken? it's chicken. >> jimmy: just the chicken, what is that made out of? >> chickenness. >> jimmy: meat. >> meat, it is true, yeah, meat. >> jimmy: you are right off the bat, you've said you like balls. >> i like balls. well, i mean -- >> jimmy: and you like meat. >> i do like meat. i think you like balls. [ laughter ] i'm okay with balls. i am probably more into like
tetrahedrons. there are other shapes more interesting to me. >> jimmy: imagine if we lived on a tetrahedron, it would be a disaster. >> i definitely appreciate the sphere. >> jimmy: i'm here to ask you to consider the meatball emoji. >> okay. >> jimmy: have you thought about a meatball emoji? >> we have, yeah. >> jimmy: and you -- they said no? >> they didn't say no. but recently, we passed a falafel emoji -- >> jimmy: how did falafel make it ahead of meatball? >> i think part of the sense was there are certain regions of the world that are underrepresented. >> jimmy: but they all have meatballs. >> i don't know that to be the case. >> jimmy: oh, well, luckily i do. in china, the meatball is called won si. in grease, keptetes. in mexico, albandigas. >> yeah, that sounds right. >> jimmy: what is this? this is the new one. >> the falafel. >> jimmy: the falafel? >> those look like meatballs?
>> they look more like cancerous polyps to me. [ laughter ] >> no. i mean, i feel like they look like falafel. >> jimmy: if you give me a meatball that looks like this, send it back, because this meatball has acne. >> yeah, no -- we weren't through like -- i mean, like eight different designs. >> jimmy: i put together a power point presentation. >> okay, that sounds good. >> jimmy: okay. the meatball emoji. what is a meatball? meat -- in a shape -- of a ball. we've done some market research on this. these are people who use emojis. these are people who enjoy meatballs. you cross them over. 93% of the people of the world love both emojis and meatballs. >> including the vegetarians? [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: yeah. >> oh. >> jimmy: usefulness. are any of these existing emojis more useful than a meatball emoji? the deejay thing? whatever this is? satellite? >> satellite's actually a pretty good one. but yeah i'm not going to go to the mat to defend it. >> jimmy: third place? [ laughter ] can we get rid of one of those? >> so once the emoji, always the emoji. you can't kick emoji. >> jimmy: oh. spaghetti without meatballs? so if you want to say spaghetti and meatballs, i have to go spaghetti. meat. ball. >> i feel like they would understand. >> jimmy: i have to do three for one meatball? >> it's spaghetti and meatballs. you have to go three for spaghetti and meatballs. >> jimmy: how would the vegetarians feel about this? >> they don't have to use it. >> jimmy: exactly. >> that's one of ours, actually. >> jimmy: why is this so important? great question, thank you for asking.
some people never tried a meatball. the emoji might encourage them. okay. now i have a story to tell you. this is the story of a young boy who never ate flan. this young boy found the flan emoji and he started eating flan, and guess what? he loved it. that boy grew up to be harry connick jr. [ laughter ] same thing could happen with meatballs and some other kid, you know? >> that's true. >> jimmy: presenting -- the meatball emoji. isn't it glorious? >> um -- i think you have to remove the sauce. >> jimmy: we could -- i'm not married to the sauce. but the rest of it seems pretty good? >> it's a brown ball of food. >> jimmy: yeah, it's a brown ball of food. that's exactly right. what more could you ever want in life?
>> balls of food which is what the emoji for falafel looks like. >> jimmy: do me a favor. say in as loud a voice as possible, "hey, meatball." >> hey, meatball! aaghhh! oh my god! >> jimmy: i present to you the meatball emoji in human form. what do you think? kind of like kool-aid. >> it kind of looks like the poo emoji, just round. >> jimmy: that's his real body, there's no padding in there at all. what do you think, guillermo? >> guillermo: please make a meatball emoji. i want to be an emoji. >> honestly, i know that you're -- i think you're from mexico. we're working on pinata emoji. >> guillermo: yeah? wow. >> jimmy: hey, don't sell us out for pinatas. >> guillermo: meatball first. >> i think pinata is more important than meatball. >> jimmy: no -- >> guillermo: why?
>> jimmy: no, no, not unless that pinata is filled with meatballs it isn't. >> guillermo: everybody loves food. >> everyone does love food. >> guillermo: everybody loves meatballs. >> jimmy: thank you so much. >> thank you. >> jimmy: i appreciate your time. >> thank you. >> jimmy: it's an international appeal now. >> yes. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we sent in all the paperwork and now we wait for the meatball emoji. and perhaps if we get that meatball emoji, my nobel prize, that's right. we've got a great show tonight. music from rita ora. chris and bridey elliott are here. and we'll be right back with jennifer aniston.

♪ >> hi, hi! >> jimmy: very good to see you. you look great. >> thank you. >> jimmy: i like your hair. >> thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: see now, i said you would be liked. >> did you all get money for that? >> jimmy: no, nobody got paid anything for it. i know that probably happens every time you enter a room. >> that would be really disturbing. >> how are you doing? >> i'm wonderful. >> jimmy: i want to say thank you, first of all. i want to get into something that might be a little unpleasant if you don't mind. >> oh, god. >> jimmy: you were very nice to invite me and my wife mollie to your home for friendsgiving. >> yes. >> jimmy: for those that don't know, explain what it is. >> it's the thanksgiving but the day before. because i like to sort of have a quieter thanksgiving. i don't want people working on thanksgiving. so it gives them the day off. so i do it the night before.
>> jimmy: i look at it this way -- >> you've come for the last couple of years, is this a problem? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: there is a problem. i look at it this way. instead of inviting your family over, you're with the people you actually want to be with on friendsgiving, is that correct? >> yes. i see what you're saying, yes. it's actually called fakesgiving. because it's not really thanksgiving, it's the day before. but we'll call it friendsgiving. >> jimmy: i thought it was friendsgiving. >> that's okay. >> jimmy: my problem with this holiday -- >> oh, dear, okay. >> jimmy: which i spoke about on the air the day before. and then my nightmare came true. on thanksgiving, i cook a lot of stuff. >> yes. >> jimmy: the normal turkey, yams. >> yes. >> jimmy: or sweet potatoes. the whole deal. at your event we had all of those things. so then i'm making the same thing everyone had the night before. again. so in essence, you've turned my meal into leftovers. [ laughter ]
so what i would suggest, if i may be so bold -- >> whoa. we're doing this on national television. >> jimmy: that's right. because i want -- this is not just about us. >> okay. >> jimmy: in fact, this is a microcosm. i want this to go out to the whole world. because the reason we don't have turkey the rest of the year, because it's not that great. [ laughter ] but having it two days in a row is no good. maybe on friendsgiving we could designate another special meal that we have that's not turkey and not all the stuff. >> all the stuffing and -- so you want me to sacrifice my thanksgiving meal -- >> jimmy: no, i don't, because you're still having thanksgiving and the thanksgiving meal. >> on thanksgiving. >> jimmy: on thanksgiving, where god, jesus, and his friends -- >> chose it to actually be. >> jimmy: intended for it to be, that's right. and so -- >> this sounds like a very grateful human being. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i mean, for all your many thanks for being so happy, listen, i'll make a deal.
if we do this, we talk about your children not using my backyard as a bathroom. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: well. that did happen. >> that did. that did happen. and you know what? a year went by and i didn't know it. >> jimmy: you didn't know about that? >> no. mollie and kelly decided to confess. >> jimmy: my wife and sister-in-law. >> yes, your wife and sister-in-law, kelly, decided to make this confession to me about a year later. we were at the same -- i think memorial day or something. >> jimmy: right. >> and they said, we have to tell you something that happened. and they said last year, since jane was a lot younger, she took a -- >> jimmy: she's 23. [ laughter ] >> she took -- she went to the -- she took a [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: she did. >> and so they basically -- >> jimmy: right on the lawn. right next to the pool. >> right next to the beautiful pool. and then mollie asked the bartender mike, do you have a
doggy bag for poop? mike said, i'll get it, don't worry, meaning, i'll take care of it. they're, no, no, no, just give us the doggy bag. >> jimmy: mike's a good man. >> then they asked for three bags. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, well -- >> she's healthy. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you know why that happened? >> why? >> jimmy: she was so full of turkey. [ laughter ] from all this turkey throughout the year. got no choice. >> i know. you have a real beef with this turkey. okay. i think we'll discuss this. >> jimmy: let's discuss it. >> your turkey's pretty good, my turkey's pretty good. >> jimmy: they're both good. >> yours are smoked which i love. >> jimmy: yes. >> we'll talk about it. >> meatballs would be a nice item to have? maybe? >> italian flair? >> jimmy: italian, mexican -- >> would you want to cook it? >> jimmy: you love mexican good. graciasgiving could be a nice thing. amigosgiving.
whatever you want to call it. >> i like that. >> jimmy: i think -- especially forget me, if you start doing it, everyone will follow suit. just like with your haircuts. everybody gets the same hair. [ laughter ] do you understand what i'm saying? >> i see your point, i see where you're going. >> jimmy: we'll talk about your new film. we're going to show a clip where you put my wife in your movie. >> i didn't put her in. she rightfully got the job. >> jimmy: we will see the interaction between jennifer aniston and my wife mollie. the movie is "dumpling." we'll be right back. you gotta see this! ♪ owen's gonna do it! ♪ i got him. ♪ come on, come on, come on! alright! come on, come on! come on! yeah! ♪

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that is jennifer aniston and molly macnearny in "dumpling." >> molly, she looked so perfect. >> jimmy: she had a lot of tun. a lot of spray tanner on. >> so much spray tan in that movie, it's unbelievable. >> jimmy: she had a great time. when you shot that in atlanta -- >> shot it in atlanta, yeah, where everything seems to be shot. >> jimmy: then when she went to atlanta, guess who was home alone with the children? with the kids? would be me, yeah. >> jimmy. >> jimmy: me alone. so i have one request. >> oh, god. >> jimmy: another request. >> what? >> jimmy: if you should ever put molly in another movie, put the kids in the movie too. [ laughter ] >> oh, okay, i see. i see your point. >> jimmy: that way i'm home by the weekend for myself. >> a little weekend alone. >> jimmy: exactly. this movie is set in the world of beauty pageants, which is one of the great worlds. >> yes. a mind world, yes. >> jimmy: the moms are unbelievable in this world.
you play one of the moms. >> i play one of the mothers. they run the pageant. i'm a retired beauty queen winner. i guess 1992. and yeah, it's a movie about, you know, learning to love yourself and girlfriends and a love story, many love stories. a love story with dolly parton, a love story between a mom and daughter, between friends. mainly, at the end, it's a love story about willadean learning to love herself. and redefining what beauty is. >> jimmy: willadean loves dolly parton, loves her. >> jimmy: and dolly parton is someone you love as well. >> love dolly. >> jimmy: is that a coincidence, what drew you to this? or something you intended? >> book, "dumpling," was written by julie murphy. dolly is basically like another character in the movie, because they are so in love with her. if dolly hadn't agreed to do the music or we wouldn't have said to her, we'd love to have some of your music in this film and
she immediately said yes, which is incredible. she was only supposed to write one song, she wrote six. the movie wouldn't have been made if she said no. >> jimmy: did you know dolly? >> i met dolly one time. seven years ago. at the tower bar. and i sent her and her friend that she was sitting with a glass of champagne, which is -- i went up and met her that night because i've loved her since i was little. sang into hairbrushes singing to dolly parton. i told her i named my dog after her. dolly. >> jimmy: how'd she react to the dog? [ laughter ] people sometimes hear my wife molly has a lot of dogs, not named after her, but she shares the name, and she doesn't love it. >> it's so funny you say that. yesterday dolly and i were doing press and somehow that came up. >> jimmy: dolly the dog or the person? [ laughter ] >> dolly the person. dolly parton, the person. she said -- it came out that she was like, i know when she said, i named my dog dolly after you, i didn't know how i felt about that.
oh god, i've insulted her. then the interviewer said, would you, dolly, get a dog and name it jennifer? and i said, well, that's so not a dog name. [ laughter ] and i've never met a dog named jennifer. >> jimmy: you had a dog named jennifer, you'd have to be really hip or really out of it. >> yeah. just weird. >> jimmy: yeah yeah. >> then -- yeah. i guess i slightly offended her. then i realized, telling someone you named your dog after them -- >> jimmy: i don't think it's insulting. >> i think it's cute. she's so cute. >> jimmy: you love the dog. it's not like we think of dogs like they do in the middle east or something. >> it's not a sloth. >> jimmy: even a sloth -- >> they're cute too. >> jimmy: i feel like we've covered a lot of ground. >> i think we've cleared up a lot. >> jimmy: you have 10, 11 months to think about our conversation. >> wow. >> jimmy: and to really embrace the meatball as the new -- >> i'm not opposed to it. >> jimmy: i have one other surprise for you. >> oh, geez. >> jimmy: wouldn't it be funnier
if i forget the surprise? let's show what the surprise was. oh, jennifer, i'll surprise you. dolly parton is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] there she is. isn't that beautiful?

[ laughter ] i smoked a lot. at home. in restaurants. in the toilet. on playgrounds. and then i quit. the ray liotta way. with chantix. wig me! >> chantix isn't for everyone, especially people who don't smoke. don't use chantix if you don't need to, it's a powerful
prescription medication. some people have changes in behavior or thinking. aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. tell your health care provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. >> i started smoking and then i quit smoking. with chantix. if it's good enough for liotta, it's good enough for me. >> we're ready for you on set now, chris. >> karen, how many times do i have to tell you it's ray, not chris! get me some more chantix, karen! now! how can you do this to me, karen? karen, get me more chantix! come on! now! >> chantix. along with support to help you quit smoking. >> anyway, what i was saying is, chantix. it help me quit. it can help you quit too. ha ha ha!
