  • Very well.

  • You look good.

  • Very well.

  • Thank you.

  • And happy belated birthday to you.

  • OK, thank you.

  • I'm glad it's belated.

  • So it was in September, right?

  • September 25th.

  • And you and Catherine have the same--

  • Catherine, my wife, and I have the same birthday.

  • 25 years apart, but the same day.

  • But who's counting, right?

  • So she turned--

  • She turned 50.

  • And you turned 75.

  • 75.

  • You look great.

  • Thank you.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • Thank you.

  • Moving right along.

  • Moving right along.

  • You have good genes.

  • Your dad is how old now?

  • My dad is 102.

  • How about that?

  • And my stepmother-- and my stepmom,

  • Anne, has been married to Dad for 65 years.

  • She's 100.

  • Wow.

  • So that's, what, 202?

  • Yeah.

  • Well-- so do you--

  • I mean, how do you feel about getting older?

  • Did it hit you at a certain age, or do you care anymore?

  • Yeah.

  • I'm moving right along.

  • You know, I had a cancer about about eight or nine years ago

  • where I sort of thought about that stuff.

  • Right.

  • But once I got a clean bill of health, after that,

  • it was kind of straight on, feeling good.

  • Having a younger bride makes me feel good on one side.

  • And I've got the old man over here on the other side

  • with still a full head of hair.

  • Right.

  • So it's all good.

  • You can't be an idiot about it.

  • So 75.

  • I look at the 15 year program, if I've still got my marbles

  • by the time I'm 90.

  • So I kind of think about that.

  • And after that, it's all golden.

  • Do you work out?

  • Do you take care of yourself?

  • I do.

  • I try.

  • What do you do?

  • What kind of workout?

  • I do a cardio mix-up with weights.

  • But I recently because I have been having some trouble

  • with my back playing golf, which has cut me down.

  • So I'm working with a trainer now,

  • doing a little more core body work and other areas.

  • So you play golf?

  • You're still-- are you as good as you've always been?

  • Well, I never was very good.

  • Oh, I see.

  • I never-- I started late at about 45, 48.

  • But interestingly enough, I just had yesterday--

  • I put it on a charity golf tournament

  • for the Motion Picture and Television Fund.

  • Great.

  • I've done it for 12 years.

  • We've raised about $7, $8 million

  • for the Motion Picture Television Fund, which

  • is another story, but we're very proud, our industry,

  • that we had this home for everybody,

  • not just actors, writers, everybody else,

  • and we take care of them.

  • It's a fantastic thing, yes.

  • So we did a tournament yesterday.

  • I played terrible.

  • I had the worst day of my life.

  • It's a long course out at Riviera.

  • And I'm looking at the tees.

  • You have different tees you can take off.

  • Ladies have a tee.

  • The seniors-- I said, what are those gold tees up there?

  • They should, that's for seniors.

  • I said, well, how old do you got to be to be a senior?

  • Exactly.

  • They said, 60.

  • So what am I doing back here?

  • I said, it's my tournament.

  • Exactly.

  • All right?

  • I'm raising money.

  • I mean, these make me feel good.

  • You know what I mean?

  • So you moved up to the senior tees.

  • No, I couldn't do it.

  • Oh, you didn't do it.

  • I saw a picture today of a baby that is your grandchild.

  • She is how old?

  • Lua.

  • She'll be two in December.

  • It is-- look at that face.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah, she's a [BABY TALK].

  • She calls me and I said, can you say, Bubba?

  • Call me Bubba.

  • She goes, buh-buh, buh-buh.

  • Well, that's an easy name for her to learn,

  • Bubba So she's going to call you Bubba her whole life now.

  • I hope so.

  • I'm ready for that.

  • Yeah.

  • That's cute.

  • And your son-- your youngest son-- no.

  • Is he 19?

  • My youngest son, Dylan, is 19.

  • OK.

  • So this-- jumping off-- he's a daredevil.

  • Look what he does.

  • Where was that that he did that?

  • That was, I think, in Sicily.

  • OK.

  • And what do you think when you see--

  • I mean, and he does all kinds of things like this, right?

  • Well, he did-- you know, he just did a skydiving thing.

  • But I remember that age, I was--

  • it's a hormonal thing, I think, for boys testing yourself.

  • This is him skydiving.

  • I just think it--

  • what I did not like--

  • what I did not like is he was the first one to jump.

  • Don't be the first one to jump.

  • Schmuck.

  • Right.

  • Right.

  • Yeah.

  • Let a couple of other people go off

  • first to test if there's any rocks in there and anything

  • else.

  • Right.

  • Yeah.

  • So I said, that was not--

  • so I said OK to that.

  • I said, just don't be first.

  • Yeah.

  • Be the second one to do dangerous things like that.

  • Exactly.

  • All right.

  • Let's talk about The Kominsky Method.

  • This is the second season now.

  • Second season's coming out October 25th.

  • And it is-- we see that your daughter is now dating.

  • My daughter, Mindy, bless her soul,

  • has got a boyfriend this year.

  • And I'm very happy about that, but maybe because of the fact

  • that my character, Sandy Kominsky,

  • has tended to date younger women.

  • She's chosen to have a boyfriend, this older guy.

  • I just did not expect that the guy would be my age.

  • Right.

  • And they brought me an ex-wife this year, too.

  • And I have an ex-wife.

  • And tell everyone who it is.

  • Well, if you guys would think about what

  • would be the perfect match for me for my ex-wife,

  • it's Kathleen Turner.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • That's fantastic.

  • We're going to do a little War of the Roses bit.

  • That's fantastic.

  • That's going to be great.

  • That's a great idea, whoever thought of that.

  • All right.

  • The new season of The Kominsky Method

  • is available October 25th on Netflix.

  • We're going to talk to Michael when we come back.

  • That's Michael Douglas in Green Eggs and Ham.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • I am so excited about this.

  • I mean, when we got the rights to this--

  • I'm executive producing this for Netflix.

  • And we have the greatest cast, including Michael,

  • who is a grumpy, grumpy man.

  • Typecast.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • Are you having--

  • It's a very-- you've got a day job.

  • Where did you-- the idea of a production company.

  • Was that something?

  • When you were a kid, you loved this project.

  • How did you get hold of Dr. Seuss?

  • Well, this is-- Jeff Kleeman, who runs my production company,

  • talked to the family and got the rights to it.

  • But I like making things that make people happy,

  • and I think this is such a great thing for Netflix.

  • No, it's really special.

  • I saw you and said, wow, Ellen, she does everything.

  • Well, are you enjoying it?

  • Have you done animated before?

  • No, I haven't.

  • Am I enjoying it?

  • No.

  • Oh.

  • No.

  • It's hard work, huh?

  • You did one.

  • Didn't you do one?

  • Yeah, Finding Dory and Finding Nemo.

  • Finding Dory.

  • Exactly.

  • Well, you know.

  • Yeah.

  • You sit there and--

  • well, firstly, you have to overdo it, right?

  • You've got to be larger than life.

  • Right.

  • And you're sure you're way, way off the top.

  • But I'm sort of at this point in my life

  • where I'm trying to do things that I've never done before.

  • Right.

  • So you've got Ant-Man on one side, which

  • is like a green screen, which I never had done before.

  • It's a green screen.

  • That's hard, too.

  • Finding something-- yeah, exactly.

  • Whole new appreciation for acting

  • when there's nothing there.

  • Comedy.

  • Kominsky Method.

  • I'm not necessarily known for my comedy,

  • so that was really a treat.

  • And then this, doing animated stuff,

  • was something I was really kind of looking forward to.

How are you?
