  • -Hey!

  • -Hi, Jimmy.

  • -Oh, thank you so much for doing our show.

  • I appreciate it.

  • You know, I'm the biggest fan of

  • "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,"

  • so I have to talk about it.

  • And I know I'm not your audience,

  • but I loved it so much.

  • I know you guys are actually pretty close in real life.

  • Right? -We are. We totally are.

  • -I've seen photos of you guys out. I'm like, "What?"

  • Like, I would probably freak o-- I might cry

  • if I ever saw the whole -- you guys all together.

  • -[ Laughs ] Well, let's make that happen, Jimmy.

  • I want to see you cry. -No, don't make me cry.

  • But I do love you guys.

  • -Well, there was one time where -- well, they surprised me

  • with a bachelorette party that I didn't want.

  • But they took me to a restaurant, and, of course,

  • at each of our place was, like, a pair of jeans

  • and arts and crafts.

  • So that night, like, restaurant-goers were treated to

  • watching "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" decorate jeans.

  • -[ Laughs ] Oh, my gosh.

  • -Then the liquor came, and then it got more exciting.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -People got to watch us decorate jeans inside of a restaurant.

  • -What a good group.

  • Hey, America, I want to talk to you about -- we're five days

  • from Election Day, and I just want to thank you.

  • You're doing so much great work to help encourage people

  • to vote and keeping people informed.

  • I follow you on Instagram and all the socials.

  • But you do a thing called America AF

  • where you answer simple questions about voting.

  • It's safe to watch-ish. It's bleeped.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -What made you start doing this?

  • -Well, you know, back in 2018 when we were trying to

  • get people out for the midterm elections,

  • I realized that, like, a lot of people didn't even know

  • what the midterm elections were or, like, what the point

  • of the midterm elections are.

  • Why they're important, why they matter.

  • And I realized I had this tool to just, like, speak directly to

  • at least the people who followed me

  • on social media and tell them.

  • And so I just started trying to explain things,

  • and I remember asking people like, "Why aren't you voting?

  • Like, just tell me. I need to know. Like, why?"

  • And, you know, I'm expecting these big ideological, you know,

  • reasons of like, you know, "The system's rigged.

  • Nothing's ever going to change."

  • And then the responses were like,

  • "I don't have a car to get to the polls."

  • Like, "I don't know what I.D. I need."

  • "I don't know where to go to get registered."

  • "No one's ever asked me --"

  • Like, all of these super-simple problems

  • to solve with information, with resources,

  • and I thought, you know, "I'm going to do what I can do

  • with my platform to give information to the people

  • who are following me."

  • It feels like the thing people come up against the most

  • is like, "Does it really even matter?

  • Does my vote matter?"

  • You know, and I was lucky enough to speak to this, like,

  • superhero election law attorney.

  • Again, like, I'm a big nerd.

  • Like, that's what gets me excited.

  • I get to speak to, like, an election law attorney,

  • Marc Elias, and, you know, I asked him like,

  • "Does every vote matter?"

  • And he just said, "Oh, my God, does it matter."

  • Like, in 2018, we lost a Senate race in Florida

  • by one tenth of 1%.

  • Do you know what would be happening right now

  • if there was another Democrat in the Senate?

  • So one of the things people have to remember is that, you know,

  • we're not just voting for the president.

  • You're voting for senators and congressmen

  • and district attorneys and sheriffs,

  • people who make such a massive impact in your community

  • and arguably have just as much

  • if not more impact than the president.

  • So showing up and voting in those local races

  • often comes down to just tens of votes.

  • And so it so matters that we show up.

  • -I want to talk about your new initiative called She Se Puede.

  • -Good pronunciation, I love it.

  • -Not bad? Thank you. -Not bad.

  • -I appreciate that.

  • Can you explain how this started and what it is?

  • -Yeah. She Se Puede is a new online platform that I launched

  • with my dear friend Eva Longoria and also a number of

  • other amazing Latinas across business and politics

  • and organizing and activism.

  • And it's a new lifestyle platform for Latinas.

  • It's a place for us to be celebrated and to be empowered

  • in everything from, you know, raising children, cooking meals,

  • our workouts, asking for a raise,

  • and also our engagement civically.

  • I mean, the numbers of Latinas

  • are so often spoken about in this country.

  • But numbers don't equal power.

  • Power equals power.

  • And in order for us to really make a difference

  • and to be reflected and represented in this country,

  • we need to be empowered to use our -- use the power

  • of our numbers to change the way politics happen in this country,

  • to change the way our communities are treated.

  • And so the civic-action piece is

  • a really big part of She Se Puede.

  • But it's really about celebrating and reflecting

  • every aspect of our lives.

  • -Yeah, good for you.

  • I want to talk about "Superstore"

  • because Season 6 premiered tonight.

  • And next week is your character's final episode.

  • -That's right, yeah.

  • -You were about to film this episode in March,

  • and then the pandemic hit, so you came back again this season.

  • And you had to basically say goodbye

  • to everyone twice or three times?

  • -Yeah, I had, like, my final table read three times.

  • And it was -- it was just a mess.

  • I mean, I, like, sobbed like a baby the first time.

  • -Of course. -I couldn't even get words out.

  • And then the second time, I didn't know it was going to

  • be my last table read, and then --

  • so when the final day finally came, I had nothing to give.

  • I had, like, cried all the tears.

  • I said goodbye. -"Yeah, I'm exhausted.

  • You know I love you." -Yeah.

  • -But I'm happy that you got to come back

  • and finish it the right way.

  • -Totally.

  • And I -- You know, I did 100 episodes of the show.

  • I love the show.

  • I'm so glad that it's going on

  • and that the fans are going to

  • continue to watch it and love it.

  • And I'm always going to be a fan of the show.

  • And it was such an amazing five years of my career,

  • and I'm always going to be grateful for it.

  • -I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here's America Ferrera in "Superstore." Take a look.

  • -And Zephra is adamant that we follow the CDC recommendation of

  • washing your hands for a full 20 seconds.

  • -20 seconds?

  • That's like literally forever.

  • -It's about the length of two "Happy Birthdays."

  • So just sing that and you'll be fine.

  • -Yeah, but whose name do we insert?

  • I have a friend named Ty

  • and I have a friend named Alexandria Genevieve.

  • Those are two wildly different timeframes.

  • -Just say the name Emma.

  • -Oh, God.

  • Is this your way of making us sing "Happy Birthday"

  • to Emma because all of her friends ditched her

  • on her birthday this year?

  • -No, that didn't happen.

  • Emma is very popular,

  • and she's dating a very cute boy name Braden.

  • Very cute.

  • I don't mean cute like I think he's hot

  • because I'm an adult and that would be weird.

  • Whatever. Just wash your hands. There's a virus.

  • -America Ferrera.

  • "Superstore" airs Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. on NBC.
