  • Thank you for being here.

  • I really, really appreciate it.

  • On what is a momentous time for you, Mr. Morgan? Because I

  • don't know if you know this, but there was a poll in the United

  • Kingdom where people voted on the sexiest American voice.

  • And you came out top.

  • (cheers and applause) (laughter). Talk to me. Talk to me.

  • What do you think about that?

  • Well, what can I do with it?

  • Tell you what, you can -- You can do some sexy

  • talk down. That's what you can do.

  • Yeah, have you always had this sexy voice?

  • Since about the age of four, yeah.

  • I mean this poll was in the UK

  • It is a huge poll. Everyone voted.

  • Did you vote, Tim?

  • I did, indeed.

  • I voted twice.

  • Who did you vote for?

  • I voted for me.

  • You voted for you?

  • I voted for you, Morgan. I voted only for you.

  • That's the fact.

  • Feels good.

  • Zooey, where does your voice sit on the sexiness scale?

  • It's low down. It's not high.

  • No, No, I think you've got a little husky sexy voice

  • going on there.

  • Thank you.

  • It's good.

  • Because Dolly Parton was number two, Reese Witherspoon was number three.

  • I think your voice is somewhere between the two.

  • Oh my goodness, really?

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Now Morgan, how to...

  • Audience is like not buying it.

  • (laughter) Audience is like no, definitely does not have a sexy...

  • But it's difficult because you are next to number one. It's hard.

  • There is such a huge gap between number one and number two.

  • Exactly. If you are not first, you are last, right?

  • That's it. I mean, Morgan, what do I need, because my voice

  • basically sounds like -- I think I sound like a prepubescent 14-

  • year-old.

  • How do I get... How do I make my voice sexier? What do I have to do?

  • How do I "Freemanize" it?

  • Are you joking or do you really want to know?

  • I genuinely want to know.

  • Yawn a lot.

  • -Really? -Really.

  • -That is what... -Yeah

  • Relax the larynx, the whole area of the throat, the jaw, because one of the things that

  • makes the voice high is tension in the throat.

  • -That's right. -See? Already?

  • It's already coming out.

  • -Look at that. -Yeah!

  • Imagine how you turn out in a week, Mate.

  • I don't know about you. I'm turning myself on.

  • Sounds good. Not great to look at.

  • Am I done here, James?

  • Can I go now?

  • I don't know but it's -- I mean Tim, what is yours like with a yawn?

  • With a yawn, give us...give us a rough. C'mon.

  • This is why the second is the American voices.

  • "Hello, mate." Sounds a bit dumb.

Thank you for being here.
