  • -My first guest is one of my favorites.

  • She's an Oscar-nominated actress

  • who stars in the new movie "Superintelligence,"

  • which will be available on HBO Max tomorrow.

  • Here is Melissa McCarthy. Ah! There -- Come on.

  • I am so happy to see you. -Hi.

  • -Thank you so much for coming on the show.

  • I appreciate it. I just was talking

  • to your husband, Ben Falcone,

  • who's the director of this movie.

  • And we were -- he was actually sitting where you're sitting.

  • -I know. We're in the --

  • It kind of looks like I should be just constantly gyroscoping.

  • -It is a beautiful scene, like you're in a wave

  • or it's, like, a Chris Nolan-y type of vibe.

  • -Exactly. Chris is here with me.

  • Yeah, I just keep him off-camera.

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -He's quarantining with you guys?

  • That's so cool. -Yeah, for sure.

  • -But you guys are in Australia right now.

  • -We are. -So, you are currently

  • a day ahead of me. You're living in the future.

  • -Yes, I'm in your future. You're doing great.

  • -How's my day gonna go tonight?

  • Am I gonna get a good night's sleep?

  • -No, you won't sleep.

  • But, boy, you'll wake up, still feeling renewed and fresh.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -You'll have one huge white streak, though.

  • I won't explain it. -Okay, no problem.

  • Well, I sleep with a lightning rod,

  • so I was just kind of hoping for something to happen.

  • I'm like, "What a bad investment."

  • Well, tonight's the night.

  • Right now, you're in the middle of filming a new series.

  • That's why you're in Australia. -Yes.

  • -And you are working with all my favorite peeps.

  • Nicole Kidman, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Shannon.

  • I would go anywhere with -- And you!

  • Anywhere you guys are showing up, I would go.

  • What is -- What are you shooting, and how is it going?

  • -It is so crazy. It's such a good group.

  • And, like, everyone's so weird. -Yeah.

  • -Which is always, like, my favorite when you find it.

  • 'Cause I've met Nicole, but I've not worked with her.

  • And there's something so regal about her.

  • You expect her to be like, "Hello. I'm Nicole Kidman."

  • And then, you really get to know her,

  • and you're like, "She's weird!"

  • She's, like, a wonderful weirdo. -Yeah, she's fun.

  • -And Michael Shannon, who just --

  • I just literal hunker down, and sometimes they're like,

  • "Melissa, it's your line." I'm like, "Oh, I'm sorry."

  • I was just -- I was just watching Shannon,

  • 'cause he's one of the most fascinating people

  • I've ever met. And funniest.

  • -And funny -- Oh, I was just gonna say.

  • You beat me to it.

  • He's one of the funniest people I've ever met.

  • We were doing some bit here, joking around, we were saying,

  • it was, like, "Hey, it's National Cape Day.

  • We're all gonna wear capes." Just made it up.

  • And, dude, he came out in a full-on cape.

  • He went and found one in the wardrobe department.

  • A full-on vampire-like Dracula cape.

  • And didn't say -- -That could also be

  • how he goes to Trader Joe's.

  • You just don't know what's gonna happen.

  • -Yeah, he showed up one time wearing

  • an "Alvin and the Chipmunks" onesie on my show.

  • It was like, "Okay." -[ Laughs ]

  • -And no explanation. He's just fun, that's all.

  • Are you getting any of the Australian accent at all?

  • -I've got -- I think the closest I'm coming to is,

  • I really love their "no's," because it's "ner."

  • -Yeah, you're right. It is "ner."

  • -"Ner!" They end it with an "R,"

  • and it's the best thing.

  • And sometimes I'll say things to try to get people to say no.

  • "Ner." And they say, "No drama.

  • No drama." And the first time somebody

  • said it, I was asking somebody something,

  • because there's no COVID here.

  • So, everyone's still super careful, but you're --

  • we can be out among people, delightfully so.

  • And I was asking for something, and someone goes, "No drama."

  • And I was like, "Oh, no, no, no! There is no drama.

  • I was just curious." -"I don't want to start drama."

  • -"Yeah, yeah, no drama." -"No, we're not making drama."

  • -I kept thinking they were thinking I was, like,

  • flying off the handle.

  • And then I just realized, it's just what they say.

  • But I kept re-explaining. -"Ner drama."

  • I want to talk to you about the movie "Superintelligence."

  • What a great, funny premise.

  • But I really like the idea that you and your husband

  • had this great idea to go along with the release of the movie.

  • It's called 20 Days of Kindness.

  • And can you explain that to everyone watching?

  • -Yeah, it's -- You know, we made this --

  • We actually shot this movie almost 2 1/2 years ago.

  • -Wow. -And it was kind of strange

  • that when it's finally now coming out,

  • it seems almost more relevant.

  • It seems like we wrote it three weeks ago.

  • And there's such a -- I mean, it really is,

  • people are worth saving, love wins.

  • And just talking about we all kind of --

  • Even if it's just on Zoom, we were coming back together.

  • And it just felt like...

  • What's going on in the world and what this movie stands for,

  • we're like, we can't just -- we want people to see the movie,

  • 'cause I do think it's so happy and funny

  • that it's what people kind of need right now.

  • It's -- It's really warm-hearted.

  • And we're like, "We should do something

  • 'cause we're lucky enough to be putting this out."

  • So, we picked 20 charities, and we're giving each one $20,000.

  • And we've had --

  • And Girls Who Code was our first one,

  • and AT&T came in the first day

  • and gave them an additional $1 million.

  • -Oh, my goodness. -And I think just

  • constantly checking in with how many people even

  • during these crazy times

  • are still putting all this time into helping people.

  • It's so inspiring. It's really something.

  • Today's our day 16.

  • -What charity are you highlighting today?

  • -Habitat for Humanity. -Oh.

  • -Which is -- I mean, you just --

  • They're constantly, constantly finding and helping people.

  • So... -Oh, they need help.

  • We love them. Oh, it's great.

  • I want to talk more about the movie when we come back.

  • Can you stick around for five more minutes?

  • -No. [ Both laugh ]

  • -I know -- I already have --

  • I can call Ben. I can call your husband.

  • Now we're like old buddies now. I have his cellphone.

-My first guest is one of my favorites.
