3:47 am
early prep of the movie was to pick up elle from her school, you know? and i thought there'd be a guardian or something but sofia really wanted us to spend time together so i went there and -- you know, on my way over there, my car was smelling like smoke 'cause i smoke still and i wanted her to wear a seat belt. i was getting nervous -- kind of responsibility -- >> jimmy: 'cause you're a single l.a. guy. >> yeah, i'm a single guy and i'm playing a father in the movie but immediately -- she's so smart -- sofia -- she put me into the head of the guy. i picked up elle and i had these crazy hair extensions in. i couldn't really tell her -- >> jimmy: from the porn star movie? >> yeah, so she's like -- [ laughter ] she's like "what movie are you making?" and i'm like, "oh, you know -- you know, it's a surf comedy i'm doing with jimmy fallon, you know." >> jimmy: completely, exactly. >> and she was like, "oh, great." and so, one of the things we do -- we went to "color me mime." i don't know if you've ever been there. >> jimmy: i've heard of this. it's a -- >> yeah, it's place where you -- i'd never been there before but it was great to go and -- >> jimmy: what is -- what -- it's a -- >> yeah, it's for kids, where you go to make -- >> jimmy: pottery. >> yeah, you make pottery and stuff, so immediately, elle kind of b-lines to the other room, where i guess she picks her pottery and i was kind of -- they were looking at me like i
3:48 am
was crazy with this hair and -- so i was like, "elle, wait up!" you know, "show me the ropes a little bit." and then, she's like, "oh, stephen, this is where we pick our thing." and then, you know, i said "well, let's make something for sofia, you know? this is a start-up present, as our characters." so she picked this really eloquent soap dish and was skating -- making an ice skate, 'cause she plays a ice skater in the movie. she does a beautiful job at ice skating. and i didn't know what to pick, so i'm looking around and in the corner, i saw this ashtray. and i was like, "that's perfect for my character but why is there an ashtray at 'color me mine'?" you know -- >> jimmy: kids love ashtrays. >> yeah. so i grab the ashtray. we made our stuff. elle was making fun of me the whole time 'cause hers was really perfect and eloquent and mine was really bad and then, the process is you cook them you know? and then you pick them up the next day, which i -- >> jimmy: yeah. >> when i picked them up the next day, i had to tell elle that mine turned into a masterpiece, which it did and -- something about the cooking process just kind of -- yeah, helped me out. >> jimmy: you can't really screw up an ashtray, really. to be honest, i mean -- >> no, no -- yeah. but elle was doing such a good job and i think mine, in the end, might have been a little better but sofia has hers and it was great. but i got through my first play
3:49 am
date with an 11-year-old and it was amazing, it was -- >> jimmy: and she has no idea, to this day, that it was actually dick shadow she was meeting? yeah, not even you.
