  • -Thank you so much for coming back to our show.

  • Is it -- Is it all flushing back to you?

  • -The trauma. The post-traumatic stress

  • of my last performance on the "Jimmy Fallon Show."

  • [ Laughs ]

  • -Last time you were on this show,

  • and this is late night,

  • we just had met.

  • We'd never met each other. -We'd never met before.

  • -And you couldn't be nicer and sweeter

  • and, gosh, I'm a fan of yours. -[ Laughs ]

  • -And you came out, and you sat just the way you're sitting,

  • very nice. -Just here, in this seat.

  • -And we were talking, and I just gave you a compliment,

  • and then you said, "Before you continue..."

  • -"Before you even start the interview..."

  • -Yeah. -I just dove straight in with

  • "I love that Halloween candy thing that you do."

  • -And I said... -And there was just silence.

  • [ Laughter ] - I said,

  • "The Halloween candy thing, is that right?"

  • -You're like, "The candy corn thing?"

  • -Yeah, I thought -- -No.

  • -You go, "When you get kids, you trick them."

  • And I go, "That's Jimmy Kimmel." [ Laughter ]

  • [ Fog horn blows ]

  • It was the first time we met! -And I died inside.

  • -You died. You turned bright red.

  • -I died inside. -[ Laughs ]

  • -I don't mind. I get that all the time.

  • I get Jimmy Kimmel all the -- but then...

  • -But you were so sweet, 'cause you let me -- you were like...

  • You could tell that I was dying inside,

  • and you were like, "It's okay, honey.

  • If you want to go out and start again, we can do it again."

  • [ Laughter ] -Yeah, so I had leave

  • and re-enter, and then when you came and sat down,

  • I said, "So, are you a big fan of late night TV?"

  • [ Laughter ]

  • You know what? I just love it.

  • That was the first -- We don't ever want

  • to embarrass our guests, so, please,

  • thank you for coming back and I appreciate that.

  • -We love you. I mean, come on. -Aww.

  • -We -- Whatever you do. Whatever.

  • You have had a giant year. -Yes, I have.

  • It's been crazy. -I mean,

  • you were fantastic in "Beauty and the Beast."

  • We had Josh Gad on the show. But, man, you were just perfect.

  • You were beautiful in it, you sang great,

  • it was shot beautifully.

  • And I want to say, not that it really matters to anybody,

  • but I think it made like a billion dollars or something?

  • -It -- It... -Is that possible?

  • -It's crazy. I remember someone saying to me,

  • "We'd be so happy if this made, like, you know,

  • 600 or 500 or something,"

  • and it's been -- it's like, I can't even.

  • I'm just so grateful that people...

  • -That doesn't make any sense. -...loved it.

  • -Those numbers are crazy. -I know. It's crazy, crazy.

  • But this means that people loved the film, which is just --

  • which is just so awesome.

  • -I know. We could tell you put a lot of work into it.

  • -Yeah. [ Laughs ] [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -I read somewhere -- I read somewhere

  • that you had to go to like a princess boot camp

  • or something like that.

  • -I did. I did princess boot camp for three months.

  • -That sounds like fun, though. -It was fun.

  • I got to ride a horse, I got to learn to waltz,

  • and then I had singing lessons and then rehearsals.

  • So it was like, yeah. It was cool.

  • -Yeah, so now would you ever -- could you ever waltz now

  • or ballroom now if you...? -Uh, I mean, I could, like,

  • stumble my way through something reasonable, yeah.

  • -Okay. Maybe next time we'll do a ballroom dance.

  • -Okay, great. -All right, yeah.

  • I know. You're really excited about that.

  • Uh, but now let's talk about your new film now.

  • -Oh! -Such a funny title.

  • -It's a great book. -I love it.

  • -Did you get to meet Dave at all, or no?

  • who joins kind of a big tech company à la,

  • you know, like, a combination of Google and Facebook and Twitter

  • and every social -- big social media platform you can think of.

  • And she -- It's kind of her journey wrestling

  • with how incredibly powerful this company is

  • and how powerful it's becoming
