  • BIG BEARD AND A BEAR.

  • WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW.

  • WELL, PRESIDENT OBAMA IS BACK IN THE NEWS AGAIN.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: HE'S OUT THERE CAMPAIGNING AGAIN.

  • YOU HAVE A LITTLE HISTORY WITH HIM.

  • YOU CAN EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THIS PHOTO RIGHT

  • HERE.

  • >> OH, ME AND BARACK.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT IS HAPPENING?

  • THIS IS IN 2012, I THINK.

  • >> YES.

  • I'M JUST MAKING HIM LAUGH.

  • >> Stephen: AND THEN-- >> DOUBLED OVER WITH LAUGHTER!

  • I KNOW!

  • >> Stephen: THAT HAD TO HAVE BEEN A FANTASTIC FEELING TO GET

  • A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES-- A CERTAIN PRESIDENT OF

  • THE UNITED STATES-- TO LAUGH.

  • WHAT DID YOU SAY?

  • WHAT DID YOU DO?

  • >> OKAY, OKAY, SO I GOT AN EMAIL SAYING, "HEY, DO ULTIMATE TO

  • MEET THE PRESIDENT?" AND I SAID, "OF WHAT?"

  • THEY SAID, "THE COUNTRY, YOU'DIOT."

  • >> Stephen: DID YOU REALLY THING?

  • >> I WAS LIKE, "THE PRESIDENT OF WHAT?"

  • BECAUSE WHY?

  • I WAS VERY EXCITED TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO AN EVENT

  • AND MEET HIM.

  • AND I SHOWED UP-- THE FIRST PERSON THERE, OBVIOUSLY, APPLE

  • POLISHIR.

  • >> Stephen: WAS IT AT THE WHITE HOUSE?

  • >> NO, THIS WAS IN LOS ANGELES.

  • BUT I WAS THE FIRST PERSON THERE.

  • AND I WALK INTO THIS ROOM, AND IT'S JUST THE SECRET SERVICE

  • AGENT.

  • HE'S LIKE, "YOU'RE THE FIRST ONE HERE!"

  • I WAS LIKE, COOL, GOOD TO KNOW I'M THE LOSER OF THE GROUP.

  • AND WE GOT TO TALKING A LITTLE BIT.

  • AND HE'S FROM MAINE AND I'M FROM MAINE, AND THIS PART IS BORING,

  • BUT IT'S A NECESSARY PREAMBLE.

  • SO THEN OBAMA COMES IN.

  • THERE'S, LIKE, MAYBE 30 PEOPLE, AND WE'RE JUST KIND OF STANDING

  • AND LISTENING TO HIM AND HE'S TALKING ABOUT, YOU KNOW, THE

  • CAMPAIGN HE'S GOING TO RUN.

  • AND HE'S DOING THAT THING OF KIND OF, YOU KNOW, MAKING EYE

  • CONTACT WITH EVERYBODY BUT NOT REALLY.

  • AND I'M GOOG, "OH, MY GOSH, HE'S LOOKING RIGHT AT ME BUT HE'S

  • NOT."

  • BUT THEN HE ACTUALLY LOOKED RIGHT AT ME AND IT'S VERY

  • DIFFERENT.

  • AND I'M VERY EXCITED.

  • AND HE GOES, "OH, MY GOSH"-- HE'S TALKING ABOUT THE ECONOMY.

  • HE GOES, "OH, MY GOSH, ANNA WAS IN ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES 'UP

  • IN THE AIR,'" TALKING ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND THE RECESSION.

  • AND I THOUGHT THIS IS SUCH AN INCONVENIENT TIME TO HAVE A FULL

  • STROKE, WHICH IS, OBVIOUSLY, WHAT'S HAPPENING.

  • >> Stephen: SURE, SURE, SURE.

  • >> AND PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT ME.

  • AND WE GOT TO SHAKE HIS HAND AND TAKE A PHOTO.

  • I SHAKE HIS HAND AND HE SAYS, "I HOPE YOU I DIDN'T EMBARRASS YOU

  • EARLIER."

  • AND I SAID, "YEAH, YOU'RE SUCH AN (BLEEP)."

  • ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( LAUGHTER )

  • AND HE KIND OF LAUGHS.

  • AND THEN HE SAYS, "OH, AND YOU'RE FROM MAINE, AREN'T YOU?"

  • AND THINKING ABOUT MY CONVERSATION WITH THE SECRET

  • SERVICE AGENT, I SAID, "YES.

  • AND, ACTUALLY, I WAS THE FIRST PERSON HERE."

  • AND I START TO TALK ABOUT HIS SECRET SERVICE AGENT.

  • AND HE SAID, "OH, ARE PEOPLE FROM MAINE REALLY PUNCTUAL?"

  • AND I SAID,s, YOU DIDN'T KNOW THAT?

  • YOU'RE THE PRESIDENT.

  • SO I CALLED HIM AN (BLEEP) AND SCOLDED HIM FOR NOT KNOWING

  • ENOUGH ABOUT THE 50 STATES.

  • SO THAT'S WHAT MADE HIM DOUBLE OVER WITH LAUGHTER!

  • YAY!

  • >> Stephen: DID YOU GET INVITED TO ANOTHER?

  • WAS THIS THE LAST ONE OR HAVE YOU SEEN HIM SINCE?

  • >> WELL, WHEN YOU PUT IT THEY WAY-- OH, NO, NO, NO.

  • I WENT TO THE KENNEDY CENTER HONORS AND I GOT TO SING AT

  • "CHRISTMAS IN WASHINGTON" AND I MET HIS WHOLE FAMILY SO YES.

  • COME OANNE.

  • >> Stephen: WOW, NICELY DONE.

  • NICELY DONE.

  • WHAT DID YOU SING?

  • WHAT DID YOU SING FOR "CHRISTMAS IN WASHINGTON."

  • >> I SANG "HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY CHRISTMAS."

  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO SING FOR THE PRESIDENT YOU'RE GOING TO SING

  • JUDY GARLAND, AM I RIGHT?

  • GLI TAKE YOUR WORD FOR IT.

  • I HAVE NEVER SUNG FOR THE PRESIDENT BEFORE

  • >> AND NOW I'M GOING, IS THAT WHAT I REALLY SANG.

  • >> Stephen: YOU HAVE A NEW MOVIE CALLED "A SIMPLE FAVOR."

  • IT COSTARS BLAKE LIVELY.

  • >> I KNOW.

  • ( APPLAUSE ).

  • >> Stephen: AND WHAT'S THE MOVIE ABOUT?

  • >> UM, THE MOVIE IS ABOUT THESE TWO WOMEN WHO ARE KIND OF

  • OPPOSITES, BUT THEY'RE FRIEND.

  • AND BLAKE LIVELY'S CHARACTER GOES MISSING.

  • AND I HAVE TO KIND OF GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS MYSTERY AND KIND

  • OF SHE'S NOT WHAT SHE SEEMS, I'M NOT WHAT I SEEM, AND THERE'S

  • LOTS OF TWISTS.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU MURDER HER?

  • DO YOU MURDER HER?

  • >> I WOULDN'T TELL YOU IF I DID.

  • >> Stephen: THEN YOU MORED HER.

  • >> OKAY ( LAUGHTER ).

  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE A CLIP FROM THE MOVIE.

  • YOU CAN TELL US WHAT HAPPENED?

  • >> YES-- WELL, THIS IS JUST A POINT IN THE MOVIE WHERE

  • EVERYONE IS A SUSPECT.

  • >> Stephen: ALL RIGHT, JIM, EVERYONE IS A SUSPECT.

  • >> HI!

  • >> SEAN'S NOT HERE RIGHT NOW.

  • >> YOU KNOW, I WAS ACTUALLY HOPING TO SPEAK TO YOU.

  • >> OH!

  • MYSTERIES.

  • >> Stephen: NOW, BLAKE LIVELY SAID BUTHAT YOU ARE THE HOTTER

  • FAME VERSION OF HER HUSBAND.

  • >> Stephen: DOES THAT-- DOES THAT-- DOES WHAT REALLY MAKE

  • SENSE TO YOU?

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: THAT YOU'RE THE HOTTER FEMALE VERSION OF HER

  • HUSBAND?

  • >> I'M BASICALLY DEADPOOL, RIGHT, IN THE SUIT.

  • >> Stephen: SO I ASSUME THE TWO OF YOU GOT ALONG?

  • >> YEAH.

  • SHE'S AMAZING.

  • IT'S ACTUALLY ANNOYING HOW PERFECT AND STATUESQUE THEY ARE

  • AS A COUPLE SO I DON'T REALLY LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE TOO

  • PERFECT.

  • >> Stephen: I UNDERSTAND.

  • HE'S HARD NOT TO LIKE UNTIL YOU SPEND TIME WITH HIM AND THEN YOU

  • LIKE HIM MORE AND YOU DISLIKE HIM MORE.

  • >> YOU'RE LIKE, HANGING OUT WITH YOU MAKES ME FEEL LIKE A HOBBIT

  • AND I DON'T LIKE IT.

  • NOT A HOBBIT.

  • HOBBITS ARE LIKE.

  • LIKE GOLLUM, FULLY GOLLUM-- YOU'RE THE EXPERT.

  • >> Stephen: A WOMAN HOBBIT IS NOT NECESSARILY A COMPLIMENT.

  • >> I REALLY LOVE IT WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT "LORD OF THE RINGS."

  • >> Stephen: ARE YOU A "LORD OF THE RINGS" FAN?

  • >> NO, I'M JUST TRYING TO MAKE YOU UNCOMFORTABLE.

  • >> Stephen: YOU'RE A FANTASY FAN, AREN'T YOU?

  • ARE YOU A TOLKIEN FAN.

  • >> I DO A "LORD OF THE RINGS" MOVIE MARATHON.

  • >> Stephen: YOU DO?

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: DO YOU DO THE DIRECTOR'S CUT.

  • >> THE EXTENDED CUT.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S THE DIRECTOR'S CUT.

  • SO THAT MUST TAKE 13 HOURS TO DO?

  • >> IT DOES.

  • >> Stephen: AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN INVITED.

  • >> WELL, NOW YOU KNOW.

  • ( LAUGHTER ).

  • >> Stephen: I WANTED TO ASK YOU ABOUT ONE OTHER CELEBRITY,

  • FREAK-OUT CELEBRITY MEETING YOU'VE HAD.

  • I KNOW YOU MET THE PRESIDENT AND THAT IS STUNNING.

  • I UNDERSTAND YOU ALSO HAD A CHANCE TO MEET BEYONCE.

  • >> MUCH MORE IMPORTANT, YES.

  • >> Stephen: SURE.

  • >> I MET HER ONCE AT THE AGREEMENTS AND KIND OF HAD MY

  • FAN GIRL MOMENT.

  • AND I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO GO TO THE GRAMMYS A SECOND TIME AND I

  • SAW HER IN THE HALLWAY WAITING FOR THE ELEVATOR.

  • AND SHE SAID, "HI, I JUST WANTED TO SAY BLUE, MY DAUGHTER, SHE

  • LOVES YOU."

  • AND I WAS LIKE, "WELL, THAT'S GREAT NEWS, BECAUSE BLUE IS

  • OBVIOUSLY GOING TO BE OUR INTERGALACTIC OVERLORD AT SOME

  • POINT, AND SHE'S ON MY SIDE!

  • SO I'M ASSUMING BLUE IS A FAN OF POPPY FROM TROLLS, BUT MAYBE SHE

  • LOVES THE ACCOUNTANT.

  • I DON'T KNOW.

  • SHE COULD BE VERY MATURE FOR HER AGE.
