12:38 am
on a sherwin-williams swatch card. [ laughter ] "i think this room would look good in boehner." [ laughter ] boehner also revealed this weekend that he regularly does yoga. his favorite part is the end when you just lie on your mat and pretend that you're dead. [ laughter ] last night was the super blood moon, where the moon appears larger than usual and has a reddish hue. and today the super blood moon is the republican frontrunner. [ laughter ] [ applause ] jeb bush said last week that democrats often win the black vote, because they tell people we'll take care of you with free stuff, whereas democrats actually win the black vote because republicans keep saying stuff like that. [ laughter ] president obama spoke at the u.n. this morning and said that
12:39 am
the united states cannot solve the world's problems alone. that's true. unless the world's only problem is that they can't think of anything else to put bacon on. [ laughter ] we're good at that here. [ light laughter ] russian president vladimir putin also addressed the u.n. general assembly today. unfortunately, he addressed them as "my future russians." [ laughter ] [ applause ] a new poll by the "wall street journal" has found that donald trump and dr. ben carson are running virtually neck and neck, while mike huckabee and ted cruz are running without necks. [ laughter ] the japanese company soft bank had to issue a reminder to its customers to not perform any sexual acts or other indecent behavior with its human robot pepper. though if you don't want people to perform sex acts with your robot, maybe don't give it a stripper name. [ laughter ]
12:40 am
call it the x-5000. nobody is going to want to get involved with that. tom brady last night became just the fourth quarterback in history to throw for over 400 touchdowns which works out to 320 when you adjust for inflation. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] a new survey shows that 59% of americans believe immigrants don't learn english quickly enough. while the other 41% believe immigrants don't learn english fastly enough.

[ laughter ] [ applause ]
12:41 am
researchers in singapore are trying to develop a robot that can put together ikea furniture. but so far, it's been unsuccessful, because the robot hasn't been able to find its way out of the store yet. [ laughter ] [ robot voice ] "i have seen these lamps before. [ laughter ] how am i still in this aisle?" and finally, a man in brooklyn is being accused of abusing a videoconferencing service for the deaf and called them over 4,600 times to masturbate on video in front of operators. fool me once, shame on you. fool me 4,600 times, you guys got to stop picking up calls from that number.

[ cheers and applause ] the cindy crawford. also from the new film "the martian" chiwetel ejiofor joins us tonight, a fantastic actor. [ cheers and applause ]
12:42 am
i can't wait to talk to him. and we also have music from awolnation, a great band, will also be here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] we mentioned it briefly in the monologue, john boehner stunned the political world on friday by announcing he was stepping down as speaker of the house and resigning from congress, after five years of republican infighting and dysfunction which brings us to a segment called "bye-bye boehner." ♪ [ applause ] boehner was third in line from the presidency and the second-most powerful man in washington, rising to the position of speaker with, by all accounts, the culmination of a life-long dream for the ohio congressman, so he must have been sad to step down. here he is after the announcement. >> it's a wonderful day. [ laughter ] >> seth: i would say he's glowing, but remember, he always looks like that. so why is boehner so happy to be walking away from a job he
12:43 am
worked his whole life to get? because it finally dawned on him that it's the worst job on earth. there are two wings of the republican party, the far right wing that believe obama must be stopped at any and all cost, and the father right wing that believes the same thing but are louder and crazier about it. and it was that farther right wing the drove boehner out. and to be clear, boehner is no moderate. he blocked immigration reform and scheduled more than 50 votes to repeal obamacare. yet despite his conservative credentials, here's how the audience at friday's values voters summit reacted when marco rubio announced boehner's resignation. >> just a few minutes ago, speaker boehner announced he will be resigning. >> audience member: yeah! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: that's how n.a.s.a. reacted when they found out matt damon was still alive on mars. [ laughter ] can you imagine being as conservative as boehner and not being conservative enough? he must feel like the riddler
12:44 am
the day the joker showed up in gotham. "but i also hate batman. yeah but so does he, and he's a [ bleep ] lunatic about it." [ laughter ] one of the conservatives pressuring boehner to shut down the government this time was ted cruz who celebrated boehner's resignation on the campaign trail. boehner was asked how he felt about cruz on "cbs this week." and let's see if he took the high road. >> i'll refer you to my remark at a fundraiser i made in august in steamboat springs, colorado. >> you called -- i believe the word you used was "jackass." referring to -- [ laughter ] >> i'm referring to that same remark. >> all right. [ light laughter ] >> seth: "i'm referring to that same remark." it's like entering a burn into the public record. "you called him a jackass?" [ trump voice ] "that is correct." [ laughter ] "would you like to amend the statement?" [ trump voice ] "i would like to add a 'suck it.'" [ laughter ] >> seth: so republicans didn't get along with boehner. but that doesn't mean democrats did. nancy pelosi was asked how she felt about boehner yesterday on cnn. here she is. >> are you going to miss him? >> well, i am --
12:45 am
[ laughter ] know one thing, my -- i respect my colleagues. [ laughter ] there was also no love lost between boehner and the president, who had very different styles. boehner said of his negotiations with obama in 2013, quote, "all you need to know about the differences between the president and myself is that i am sitting there smoking a cigarette drinking merlot, and there is the president of the united states drinking iced tea and chomping on nicorette." you know, if you're going to put someone down with an iced tea and nicorette comment, maybe leave out the merlot on your end. [ laughter ] also, cigarettes and merlot? are you a congressman or joy behar on vacation? [ laughter ] so to recap, boehner and pelosi don't get along, boehner and obama don't get along, boehner and his own caucus don't even get along. who does boehner get along with? well, the better question is not who, but what. because there is one thing john boehner does love, and that is mowing the lawn. here is an actual video his office posted last year.
12:46 am
[ light laughter ] >> i love green grass. [ laughter ] >> seth: you guys. he loves green grass. and who can blame him? because unlike an extreme right wing of your own party, when grass gets out of control, it's legal to cut that [ bleep ] down. [ light laughter ] so it doesn't seem like boehner's resignation will make things anything better in washington. and in fact, they'll probably get worse. but one person who won't have to worry about it, john boehner. and lets tip our cap to a politician who resigned not because of a scandal, but because he realized the job sucked so much, all the merlot in the world couldn't get him through it. this has been "bye-bye boehner." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with more "late night!"

[ light laughter ] also, dennis, why do you get so many lane bryant catalogs? there's like stacks and stacks of them down there. and when i ask you nicely to throw them away, stop telling me they're going to be worth millions someday because they won't. dennis, just get rid of them.

[ laughter ] hey, dennis, stop saying that they stole your idea for pizza rat. first of all, who is they?

really proud that you're 1/16th cherokee. but could you find a different place to do your peyote rituals? [ light laughter ] like maybe go inside your apartment instead of the hallway. last time you were high on peyote you threw a net on my dog and said "i caught the demon." [ laughter ] and i'm calling you out on that traditional headdress of yours. i say it's just a mets hat with chicken bones glued to the top of it. [ light laughter ] cut it out, dennis! happy birthday, to kristen macari of san diego, california. may the wind catch your sails and pull you in to the port of happiness. [ laughter ] dennis, keep your spiritual adviser, jeremy feathers, away from me and my wife. yesterday in the elevator he hit the stop button, looked her dead in the face and said, "i can cure the sadness in your eyes with a few private prayer sessions." [ light laughter ] and when i told him to back off, he said, "sounds like you need to be baptized in the pool." [ laughter ] just tell him to stay the hell
12:54 am
away from me and my wife. finally, happy birthday, jeremy feathers.

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back to "late night," everybody. our first guest is an iconic supermodel who has appeared on the cover of nearly 500 magazines around the world. her new book "becoming" is in bookstores tomorrow. please welcome to the show the wonderful cindy crawford. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how are you? >> i'm excellent. how are you? >> seth: i'm gonna say something i bet you haven't heard before. you look great. >> thank you. >> seth: fantastic. >> that's one of those things
12:59 am
you don't ever get tired of hearing. >> seth: we have something in common, of which i'm very excited. we both went to northwestern university. >> yes. >> seth: very excited about that. i had forgotten that you did not finish your time at northwestern university. >> i was just gonna say, you probably graduated. >> seth: i did, 'cause no one discovered me and said, "you should be on magazines." [ laughter ] but the part -- you were a chemical engineering major at northwestern. >> i was. >> seth: you received a scholarship for chemical engineering. that is -- when you think of two paths from supermodel and chemical engineer, very different. >> right, yeah. >> seth: how was your chemical engineering time? >> i loved northwestern. beautiful campus. and i didn't really know what i wanted to do, so i got offered a scholarship. i will say that i stood out in some of my classes. >> seth: i would imagine. >> i didn't have a pocket protector or, you know, glasses with the tape on it. but it was great. and actually, it was a really hard decision to leave. but it worked out okay. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, i think looking back it worked out okay. and i would imagine the classes you were in when a professor said, "does anyone have any questions? most of them were like, "i have questions about her." [ laughter ] >> i did. i actually did.
1:00 am
seriously i had one professor say to me on the first day of -- i don't know if it was calculus something, or maybe chemical something. and he was like, "i think you're in the wrong class, honey." [ laughter ] and i was so offended. >> seth: that very -- that is terrible. >> yeah, i was in the wrong class. [ laughter ] no just kidding. i was. >> seth: but i toughed it out. >> i did. >> seth: i sat through that whole class not to let him prove his point. >> i did. i was like -- exactly. >> seth: so you write about, sort of your whole modeling career. and one of the things interesting to me is -- you know, obviously, there are two things when the photo is taken, both the subject and the person who's taking the picture. you worked with some of the most famous photographers that have ever taken pictures. how different are photographers? like, when you go from like, sort of the helmut newton or a richard avedon. like, how different is it for you as a model to be shooting with a different photographer? >> oh, it's kinda -- i mean, it can be completely different. and i think part of your job as a model is to really understand the photographer that you're working with, because if you've looked at their pictures before you get there, you kinda maybe are more prepared for what they might ask from you. i mean, you certainly know it when you worked for helmut newton, you know, that it was like, bring it on, kinda that, you know, dominatrix, sexy
1:01 am
woman. and then there would be someone like a herb ritts, who was all about form and just their personalities were really different too. and i talked about it in the book, i learned something different from every one of them. >> seth: which was the photographer that told you have to have -- you have to have something in your head? like a thought in your head or a story in your head? >> yeah. >> seth: who was that? >> it was richard avedon. >> seth: okay, gotcha. so explain that real quick, 'cause i'm not good at getting my picture taken. i feel like this could be very helpful. [ laughter ] >> well, it's funny because i think actors -- i think for actresses sometimes it's really hard to get your picture taken. but i also think that if you just act like you're a model, right? >> seth: right. >> that may be it. >> seth: that would maybe help, right. >> but the thought -- what avedon said is, you know, he would shoot with the big camera so you saw everything. and he was like, "i don't want a blank stare. you need to be saying something with your eyes. so every time you look in that camera have a thought." he's like, "i don't need to know what it is." >> seth: uh-huh. >> you know, it shouldn't be your grocery list, but something. he said, "even if the thought is 'buy me, i'm $3.00'." which was the cost of "vogue" at the time. and that really helped me a lot
1:02 am
because every time i would turn in the camera i would have a thought, depending on what we were going for. it'd be just something that would make you smile or something that would make you, you know, look a little sultry. >> seth: i feel like 90% of the pictures i take, my thought is to my wife, "honey, i feel like we have taken this picture 100 times already." [ laughter ] like how many more times do we have to take the same picture? >> yeah. >> seth: can we go about the rest of our day? >> are we done now? >> seth: yeah. >> is it over? >> seth: it's also funny -- you talked about the difference, obviously, when you first started getting your photo taken versus now with the digital era. >> yeah. >> seth: like, it must have been so much more arduous and slower to get the day done. >> well, you just shot a lot more, because you didn't know, and you know, a roll of film can get overexposed and ruined. and you would just shoot -- but actually, there was kind of like a more surprise to it, because you would do the pictures and they wouldn't come out for four months. >> seth: uh-huh. >> and you didn't know what the final story was gonna look like. now they're literally editing it on-set, you see it big, they can tweak things on the set. by the time you leave that day usually you know exactly what the story is gonna be. and is sometimes it comes out like two weeks later. >> seth: i know your daughter has started doing some modeling. are you -- do you now feel like the person when she goes off
1:03 am
where you're like, "in my day, we didn't have digital cameras." [ laughter ] >> i do. a little bit. i mean, i try not to. unfortunately, she does listen to my advice. >> seth: she does. well that's nice. >> well. 'cause i think she knows that i've proven that i -- i do know a little bit about this world. >> seth: yeah, that's true. if she's not gonna listen to you who's she gonna listen to? >> yeah. it's like the one place that i feel like she might listen to me for a while. >> seth: uh-huh. >> but you do, like -- especially with social media, for instance. that's like just not a tool that i had as a young model. and i actually think it's great for any -- for all young people, because they can kind of write their own p.r. >> seth: right. >> they can present themselves as the way they want to present it. they're not dependent on how a photographer sees them or how a stylist sees them. but, you know, i actually learn a lot from her about social media. because she'll be like, "mom, one hashtag only." [ laughter ] like if i accidently put two hashtags she's like, "you can't think -- and you can't post too many in one day." i'm like getting all the rules from my kids. yeah. >> seth: oh, that's good. that's very helpful. it's funny you talk about -- because you were in an era of very famous supermodels, but no one knew anything about your personality.
1:04 am
>> not really. >> seth: or really had heard you talk. like, that's like a big difference. now with social media i feel like you know what -- >> what they're into or whatever. >> seth: yeah. >> i think house of style gave me an opportunity to kind of bring my personality a little bit. but really before that, yeah, you're just a -- you're a two-dimensional, you know, image in a magazine. >> seth: i want to go through some of these two-dimensional images because i'm very excited to ask about some. [ laughter ] >> okay. >> seth: so this is -- so you are from the midwest. >> i am. i'm from illinois. >> seth: you're from illinois. >> dekalb, illinois. >> seth: you're from dekalb. and this is the cover, which is the dekalb night weekly community issue. so this looks like -- >> i was in my boyfriend's parents' backyard at their pool. we did not have a pool. and it was the local photographer who kind of shot everything from like the homecoming parade to house fires. >> seth: that -- with all due respect, you look great. this looks super shady. [ laughter ] like that -- >> by the way -- >> seth: yeah? >> my parents were like, "we're coming with you." >> seth: yeah. >> like who is this guy? >> seth: if a guy came up to you and was like, "hi, i do the
1:05 am
community issue. [ laughter ] i'd love to get a shot of you by the pool." >> yes. >> seth: this is great. i'm very happy that you have a photo this embarrassing. explain this one real quick. >> i don't know why i put it in a book. this is my very first, like, test shoot. and this is so perfect for a test shoot because it's -- everyone's testing, right? it's like, photographers getting their book together, hair, makeup, stylists. so, this is overstyled, obviously. because it's not enough just to have a kimono and an umbrella. like we have to throw a cat in. >> seth: uh-huh. [ laughter ] >> we have to throw a bracelet in. it's just like -- >> seth: so he doesn't have a lot of faith in you. >> no. >> seth: it's like, we're gonna do a lot of stuff here. >> oddly i actually -- because of that, elite -- which we have parallel lives. >> seth: we do. >> we were with the same modeling agency. >> seth: we were. now, technically, it's a chicago agency called elite. they also did low-end comedy. [ laughter ] so that's -- but i did. when i was young -- i mean, young. when i would walk into to like -- >> back in the day. >> seth: back in the day. when i would audition for television shows -- [ laughter ]
1:06 am
but there would always be, like, chicago models there. and that was when i was like, "i made it. this is as good as it gets." >> and you're like, "wait, i might hang out at the agency more often." >> but yeah, because of that picture, the hairstylist, which by the way, that hair, i can't even believe that hairstylist got work again. [ light laughter ] but he recommended me to "elite." >> seth: oh, wow. >> and that's when they called me. >> seth: and that's how it started. >> yeah. >> seth: all right, moving on. so this is -- this is sort of that, like, we were talking about that superstar supermodel era. >> yeah. >> seth: so these -- i think i can name most of these guys here. not in a creepy way, but just because you were all really famous. [ laughter ] but so is this -- who is this? is this -- >> naomi campbell. >> seth: okay, right. so that's naomi. >> linda evangelista. >> seth: christy -- >> tatjana patitz and christy turlington. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> and that was kinda cool because it was really a new idea. first of all, like, we weren't wearing a lot of makeup and hair. and it was about putting five different-looking girls together. and because peter lindbergh the photographer was asked to -- "what was the model of the '90s?" and he said. "i can't do it with one girl. i wanna do it with these five women." >> seth: that's fantastic. i'm bummed out i missed the cut of the model in the '90s. [ laughter ] i was at "elite" too.
1:07 am
and then this is sort of a famous one you took here for "george" magazine. >> yeah. that was the first cover of "george" magazine. and it was john kennedy, jr.'s magazine. it was cool to be asked. herbert shot it. but the funny thing was is, you know, at first they had me like literally as george. and then they cut the top up on the shoot and they actually had me stuff my pants with a sock. [ laughter ] >> seth: uh-huh. >> so i looked like george washington. >> seth: because that's what we all remember about george washington. [ laughter ] george washington -- what do you think? i think huge dong? what do you think? [ laughter ] wooden teeth? couldn't tell a lie? oh, was i off on huge dong? all right. >> then they retouched it out. >> seth: they retouched it out -- >> when it's final i was castrated on the cover. >> seth: you were castrated. >> exactly. [ laughter ] >> seth: i like that there were -- i mean again, at this point, it's not going for reality. >> no. >> seth: it's not like, "people are gonna think it's weird if it doesn't have a dude part." >> i know. >> seth: they're gonna know it's not george washington! [ laughter ] >> but sometimes, and i'm sure you know, like, when you're so inside. >> seth: yeah.
1:08 am
>> like, just photo shoots, it's like, sometimes you're just entertaining yourself at a certain point, and i'm sure you know that from all the work that you've done. >> seth: yeah. >> and it's not really funny to anybody else anymore. >> seth: oh, my god. that happens here, like, 40% of the time. [ laughter ] >> so i think that's cute. like we just were getting carried away and someone said, "let's shove a sock down her pants." >> seth: there you go. >> i was like, "okay." >> seth: you -- are you helping develop -- you're helping to consult on an nbc show about modeling in the '90s, correct? >> i am. i am. anne heche is -- has the development deal. >> seth: gotcha. >> and she asked me to be, like, the consultant. >> seth: so you're trying to make sure it's true to what actually happened. what are some of the things people think happens in modeling, that if you were a consultant on-set, you would say that does not happen. >> like when a photographer says "make love to the camera." >> seth: so the photographer never says "make love to the camera?" >> i have never had anyone say that to me in any serious thing. >> seth: that is heart-breaking. do you want to do it now? we have a camera. there, you can do it to that one. there you go. >> make love to the camera. wait which camera? >> seth: there you go. yeah. >> well, i would never say it anyways. >> seth: no, i'll say it. make love to that camera. [ laughter ] >> you might have some good looks too. >> seth: here, we'll both do it. >> okay. [ laughter ]
1:09 am
yeah. you need -- yeah. >> it works. >> seth: it doesn't work as well. >> somehow it works better with him. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: thank you. thank you so much for being here. give it up, cindy crawford, everybody! [ cheers and applause ] here new book "becoming" is in bookstores tomorrow. we'll be right back with more "late night."

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back to the show, everyone. our next guest is an academy award-nominated actor
1:14 am
who you know from his work in "12 years a slave" and "american gangster." starting friday, you can see him in the new, highly anticipated film "the martian." let's take a look. >> if we could talk to mark, we would tell him to stay put and to trust that we are doing everything in our power to bring him home alive. >> don't say bring him home alive, vincent. >> you know what, these interviews aren't easy. >> annie. >> no more vincent on tv, copy that. >> 76 kilometers. am i reading that right? >> yes, sir. mark drove two hours straight away from the hab, did a short e.v.a., and then drove for another two. >> he didn't load up the oxygenator, or the water reclaimer? >> every 41 hours there's a 17 minute gap. >> i want the gap down to four minutes. >> let's make it happen. >> please welcome to the show, chiwetel ejiofor. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ >> seth: so nice to see you.
1:15 am
>> how are you? >> seth: i'm very excited about this film. >> yes. >> seth: it looks great. i've heard great things today. i have not seen it yet. i'm going to be honest with you. but today they announced they've discovered water on mars. and right now -- i want you to be honest with my audience -- is this a tie-in to the film? [ laughter ] is this a promotional tie-in to the film? >> yeah, yeah, we set it up. [ light laughter ] matt left the water up there. >> seth: there you go. [ laughter ] this is fascinating, because obviously anyone who's seen the trailer knows, matt's on mars, you guys aren't, and you did not see him during any part of the filming. >> not at all. i finished -- i wrapped well before he -- before he started. we were all shooting in budapest. and i think something like 50 something actors had all wrapped before he even got to budapest and i saw him on the promo and i was like, "it would be great to work with you one day." [ laughter ] we do a lot of communicating in the movie but we never actually got to spend any -- >> seth: that's very good acting. let me say that about you. >> that's what they train you for. >> seth: exactly.
1:16 am
they always say, "remember, in acting, your scene partner might not be there." [ laughter ] and this is ridley scott who has done some of the best space films of all time, when you think of "aliens," and "prometheus" and whatnot. was it fun to work with ridley? >> yeah, i'd worked with -- i'd worked with ridley before on "american gangster," and i had a terrific time working with him then. but you know, this was just an opportunity to do something else with him, you know, something that was also him, sci-fi and in space, you know. and why else become an actor if not to one day, you know, work with ridley scott? >> seth: exactly. >> in a sci-fi space movie. >> seth: and you said i'm so excited to be in your sci-fi space movie, what do i do? and they said you get to stay on earth. [ laughter ] you're gonna be on earth and you try getting the other guy back from earth. >>yeah. >> seth: back from mars. >> it was a close second. >> seth: it was a close second. you spoke with heads of space agencies to prepare for this role. >> i did, yeah. >> seth: did you learn anything from them? >> i thought it was fascinating. you know, i really spoke with the european space agency. while we were doing, whilst we were shooting the movie, they were landing on the comet. you know, the -- >> seth: right, of course.
1:17 am
>> so it was a really exciting time for them. i thought they were just, you know, incredibly smart people. it's amazing, the work they're doing. >> seth: were they braggy and cocky about the fact they landed on a comet? did they sort of come in and say, "i don't know if you have heard -- [ laughter ] landed a satellite on a comet, a pretty big deal." >> maybe a little bit. >> seth: what movies have you been in? >> "we landed on a comet. i don't know, we were landing on a comet." yeah. [ laughter ] they were actually really kind of chilled. you didn't even notice in a way how much stress and pressure everybody was under until it worked. and, you know, and they landed on the comet and then -- and then just the euphoria. you were like, wow, this really was a big deal. >> seth: also, in that world, you can't -- the only way anyone pays attention is if you landed on the comet. they don't make an announcement and say, "we just missed the comet." >> yeah. >> seth: we were like that close, which is still really hard to be that close. and so. >> that's -- i mean, it's the finance, the pressure, the justification of the space agencies themselves. all of this is on, you know, just a few people.
1:18 am
and so to actually take on that pressure and then be successful, you know, is just, i mean, it's amazing what they do. >> seth: and the science in the film, i've heard, is plausible. to some degree everything that happens, everything matt's character does to get back or to sort of stay alive on mars is real science. >> yeah, i mean, yeah for the most part. there are, you know, because there are tiny things that stretch a little bit. but it is meeting -- it's science fiction meeting science fact. so it's kind of -- and the meld and the blends are really extraordinarily done, i think. and that's, like, andy weir in the book, "the martian", drew goddard wrote the screenplay, and obviously ridley scott and his very, very precise detail to everything kind of combine to give, i think, a very realistic interpretation of what this could actually -- and not too long in the future -- feel like. >> seth: yeah i think in the future we're all going to be able to survive on mars and until you come get us home. >> exactly. [ laughter ] and there's water there, which i conveniently arranged, for all earthlings. >> seth: once there is water, it's only a matter of time until there is a starbucks. [ laughter ]
1:19 am
[ applause ] very soon after, that's the thing they need. this is very exciting to me. but you're going to have to explain a little bit. you -- at the end of this month, you currently are an o.b.e. are you an o.b.e. or have you received an o.b.e.? that's the order of british empire. >> that's an officer of the order of the british empire. >> seth: officer, okay, got it. does that mean you are one or you have received one? would you say, like, "i'm an o.b.e."? >> well, yes. >> seth: but technically -- >> i can technically say that. if one would say that. >> seth: you wouldn't say it. you say it the next time they brag about that [ bleep ] comet. just be like, "well, i'm an o.b.e." [ laughter ] >> i'd put it on my starbucks cup. [ laughter ] >> seth: "obe! obe?" >> "obe? americano?" [ laughter ] >> seth: but now you're getting upgraded to cbe. >> that's true. >> seth: okay, so this is very -- what's this? >> this is the commander. >> seth: you're going to be a commander. >> commander of the british empire. >> seth: so now, congratulations! >> thank you. [ cheers and applause ] sounds a little like "star wars." >> seth: it's very "star wars." now when you get this honor, you go, you meet the queen?
1:20 am
>> you can. >> seth: or have you done it before? >> i have. actually, prince charles gave me my o.b.e. but you meet the members of the royal family. >> seth: okay, got ya. >> you can meet the queen, but it could be prince charles. i don't know, they don't -- >> seth: you don't know yet what you're getting this time. >> no. >> seth: and when you meet them -- >> who i'm getting, not what. >> seth: right, exactly. [ laughter ] >> "what"? >> seth: what are you getting? "a queen or a this." are you -- do you get to talk to them? like, did you talk to charles when this went down? >> yeah, yeah, like a chatter. >> seth: is that it? how many people get -- on the day you get it, how many other people? >> i feel like there were 100 people, maybe. and it's all different, just different professions and different people who are doing different things in the country. and so it's a really great way of just talking to people that you wouldn't really get a chance to meet at all outside the context of something like that. so it's, you know, obviously a great honor to, for something like that to happen. but also, it's really great that it -- that it sort of includes so many people. it's not just like movie people or whatever. >> seth: and so is there a cocktail party afterwards? when do you talk to everyone?
1:21 am
>> well there's a little pre-reception. >> seth: okay got ya. >> where you kind of mingle with the other people. you're kind of like, "what are you in for?" [ laughter ] "charity." [ laughter ] and so it's kind of a fun -- >> seth: that's great. i like charity. >> charity. >> seth: are there other actors there? >> i don't know if there are many actors when i -- i mean there will be, ultimately, you know. >> seth: yeah. >> but i think there's a few different ceremonies, so. >> seth: got it. >> when i got the o.b.e., i don't think i ran into any actors. >> seth: that's good. this is for you. i want the day to be about you. >> i was the actor. you know. >> seth: yeah. this -- you've obviously done films for a great long time now, and you've worked with many different directors. early on -- is this fairly early in your career? you worked with a french director, and i would love for you to tell -- share this story. >> oh, right. yeah, no, i worked with this french direct - this is, it was quite a long time ago. >> seth: i think this is a good story, a good inspirational story for younger actors to know that sometimes things -- >> that these things can happen. >> seth: yeah. >> well, i was working with this
1:22 am
guy, and he's a french director and i hadn't done, at that point, many films. and so i was very keen to impress, you know. and i went on set. i think it was the first day, and we were shooting in london. and he said -- and it was a scene that he hadn't actually -- that hadn't been really scripted, but he just kind of, he just wanted to introduce my character in an interesting way, and sort of, you know. and so i turned up on set and he was like, "we've got this thing, we set up this thing for you. and i just want you to introduce you to your mother." and i went into the kitchen -- this kitchen area they set up. and my mother -- you know, who was playing my mother, was cooking, or was like just sort of chopping some vegetables. and he says, "so, i want you to come into the room, and i want you to look at your mother, and you are very angry. you're very, very angry. and then i, and i want you to go to the store, and pick up the pots and pans and look in the pots and pans, and you're very, very --" forgive my french accent, by the way. [ laughter ] "and you're very, very angry. you're very, very angry. and then i want you to go to the fridge, open the fridge, and you're very angry."
1:23 am
and i was like, well, i didn't really understand the scene in terms of why the character would be motivated in this way. but i didn't feel like, particularly arguing that point. so i just went outside and decided to go a bit method and just get myself into a fury. [ laughter ] >> seth: sure. as you would. you want to impress. >> i wanted to impress the guy. it was my first day shooting so i was there, and i did like a kind of "raging bull" robert de niro running around like, you know, really getting myself like, just livid. and they said, "and action," and i just -- just blasted into the kitchen, you know, and just was like, looking at my mother, like "if you weren't my mother, i --" [ laughter ] and i like went to the pots and the stove and looking -- just so angry. and then to the fridge, and just as i was opening the fridge, i was like, "hungry." [ laughter ] he's saying hungry. it's just in a french accent. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> seth: that's so fantastic.
1:24 am
>> insane. turned around and the entire cast and crew just staring at me like -- [ laughter ] >> seth: they were like, "what's he so hungry about?" [ laughter ] thank you so much for being here. it's great to meet you. >> a real pleasure. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: chiwetel ejiofor, everybody.
