  • think that's so funny."

  • - Because now I finally understand

  • why I am so funny to Americans.

  • [laughter]

  • I mean, that's my favorite--

  • I mean, like, I was ruining the whole takes

  • because it was like--

  • - I wasn't making any sense. It was just crazy.

  • - And did you drive each other crazy

  • with certain things, after a certain amount of time?

  • - Well, we kind of, like, had a little bit of a competition

  • about, like, who would bring more cake to the set.

  • - Like bitter sweets. - Yeah.

  • 'Cause I always-- whenever I'm on movies,

  • I bring treats, and when she brings treats--

  • [both talking at once]

  • - Trying to, like, one-up each other.

  • - Yeah, because I went another level.

  • I found the best baker in New Orleans,

  • and of course, I would sometimes make her do stuff

  • for the-- with the guests--

  • both: The crew. - Yeah.

  • - And it was amazing. I think I won the competition.

  • - Well, actually I'm not sure you won the competition

  • 'cause today I brought Ellen some vegan cupcakes.

  • [all talking at once]

  • - Thank you so much.

  • - Are you gonna tell them what I did to you?

  • - Well...

  • I might've had to go to the emergency room.

  • - She went to the emergency room.

  • I sent her to the emergency--

  • [laughter]

  • - She's smiling about it. What did you do?

  • - Something internal. - Yeah.

  • Something with internal bleeding.

  • - Yeah, it was-- - What happened?

  • - Like, I thought my appendix had burst.

  • - I push her, and I push her, but I kept telling her,

  • "I think I'm pushing you too hard,"

  • and she's like, "No, do it real."

  • I took, like, in the-- I like this in the sofa,

  • and I popped her ovary.

  • - You popped her ovary? - I popped her ovary.

  • - Is that what they said in the hospital?

  • - It's clearly something that happens in Colombia.

  • [laughter]

  • What happens when you pop your ovary?

  • I don't know what happened.

  • How did you do with that? - It was pretty easy.

  • I'm very good with accents.

  • [laughter]

  • - Wow, you're as bad as I am.

  • - I can't do it.

  • Unless she does it, I can't repeat--

  • - All right, say a line, and she'll--

  • - [in Southern accent] It's so much fun

  • to be on the Ellen show.
