  • We know each other.

  • You just haven't been on the show.

  • Yes.

  • Can you explain to people?

  • Because I'd rather hear your version.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I've never heard your version of the story.

  • But tell people how we know each other.

  • How we met.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I'm scared, because my husband's gonna kill me for telling this story.

  • But it's my favorite story ever.

  • And it's the story of how Ellen and I met.

  • So Tom and I, my husband, were on our honeymoon,

  • which we delayed because we shot "I, Tonya" at the beginning of the year and last year.

  • And we had just gotten married, but we had to put off the honeymoon part.

  • And so we go to Tahiti.

  • And we go on to this island where you kind of live like Robinson Crusoe.

  • Like, there's just, like, a shack that you stay in.

  • And there's no electricity.

  • And there's no mirrors or anything like that.

  • So we'd been there for four days.

  • And then the last bit of the honeymoon

  • was like a really nice hotel, like a really luxury--it was lovely.

  • And so we get there, but it's raining.

  • And we're like, oh--we, by the way, look disgusting.

  • Because we haven't seen our own reflections in four days.

  • And so we don't know what we look... -By the way, they did not.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • But like, oh, what can we do here when it's raining?

  • And they're like, oh, you know, there's a lovely spa.

  • Or there's the gym.

  • And we're like, oh, I don't really want to work out.

  • But I guess we could do something at the gym.

  • And so we get changed to go to the gym.

  • And Tom puts in these shorts that are, like, his oldest gym shorts.

  • And they're tiny.

  • And they're really short.

  • And there's nothing underneath, so they're-- you know,

  • he gets on his bicycle to ride there.

  • And I was like, whoa.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I was like, babe.

  • I was like, you cannot wear those shorts.

  • They're, like, you know--I can see everything.

  • And he was like, oh, come on.

  • Who are we going to run into?

  • I mean--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • --who's gonna be here?

  • And I was like, you're right.

  • I mean, we'd just been on an island where no one else was for so long.

  • So I was like, yeah, you're right.

  • I mean, who are we going to see?

  • And so we walk into the gym.

  • And running on a treadmill is Ellen.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And--

  • And then on the treadmill next to her is Portia, her wife.

  • So Ellen looks over, and she was like--

  • Wait, and then -Hey.

  • No, no, no.

  • All right, go ahead.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • That's not even the best bit.

  • But already, Tom and I are like, oh my god.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And Tom's face has just gone white.

  • And you're like, hi, hi.

  • And I was like, oh my gosh. Ellen, so lovely to meet you.

  • And you're like, this is my wife Portia.

  • I was like, lovely to meet you, Portia.

  • I was already starstruck.

  • And then you're like, have you met Obama?

  • And we were like....what?

  • And standing next to them is former President Barack Obama.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • I'm not kidding.

  • I'm not kidding-- in a gym that is tiny.

  • -Yeah, the gym was the size of this stage. -Like even smaller.

  • It was a very confined space.

  • And we then had to do this whole-- -Oh my god.

  • We had to do this whole class, like this stretching class.

  • But Tom, meanwhile, is trying to not reveal anything.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And he's dying.

  • And I'm crying so much, I'm about to crack a rib.

  • And literally, this gym instructor keeps saying to Tom, Tom, lunge.

  • Lounge, you're not lunging.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And Tom's like trying to lunge cross-legged.

  • And Obama is stepping over his legs to put his weights back.

  • And like the whole thing was so absurd.

  • It was... -It was hilarious.

  • I mean, when she says short-shorts, they were--

  • I'm not exaggerating.

  • They were to here--

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • --and wide.

  • Like, they very wide.

  • On a bicycle--

  • When he was lunging, we're like--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And then at the end... -And then he was on the ground at one point, and like stretching.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And this part, we're like, oh my god.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • We literally got to the end of the class.

  • And we're doing a last stretch, which was legs out like this.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • And Tom's now got a towel on his crotch... -Yeah.

  • --trying to be modest.

  • And his face just says it all.

  • He's like, I'm going to kill myself.

  • This is the worst day of my life.

  • And Ellen looks over and goes, boy, those were the wrong shorts to wear today.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Oh my god, it was hilarious.

  • And then, like two days later... -Way to break the ice.

  • --we get laundry.

  • And I start looking through.

  • I was like, this is the wrong,

  • it's a small, there's only like 10 cabins.

  • Yeah, it's tiny.

  • And I was like, this is not our laundry.

  • And then I come across pink shorts.

  • And I was like, oh, I know whose this is.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I got Tom's shorts.

  • No, I know where these go.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Oh, my god. I can't handle it.

  • But I mean, so Obama was...so he was there.

  • He happened to be there writing his book.

  • And so we were working out with him every day.

  • And when you walked in and he's in those shorts,

  • I was like, oh, my god.

  • This is gonna be hilarious.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • It was honestly one of the funniest things that's ever happened.

  • But he's a huge fan of yours, Obama.

  • I didn't even-- I obviously assumed that he would have no idea who I was.

  • But when I walked in, you were like, oh, do you know Obama?

  • I was like, no.

  • I was like, hello, sir.

  • I don't know what to call you.

  • And he was like, hello, yeah.

  • And he goes, you're a very talented actress.

  • And I was like, oh my god, Obama knows who I am.

  • And he's like, we were just talking about you the other night.

  • -I was like, you were? What? You were? -Yeah.

  • That's crazy.

  • No, he's up on. He's he knows what's going on.

  • Yeah, he's up with it.

  • So I got you and Tom a gift.

  • I didn't know if he'd be here today.

  • No.

  • But just so it doesn't happen again--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • And there's--

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • Oh my god.

  • There's some mesh in here--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • --to hold it all together.

  • Thank you.

  • You're welcome.

  • Hi, I'm Andy.

  • Ellen asked me to remind you to subscribe to her channel

  • so you can see more awesome videos,

  • [SCREAM]

  • [BLEEP]
