THE REALITY. BUT NOBODY CAN TELL ME
DIFFERENT. YOU BE YOU. YOU BE GRIZZLY ADAMS. I’M PROUD OF YOU.>>Stephen: THANK YOU. DON’T YOU NEED A BEER FOR
GRIZZLY ADAMS.>>I DON’T KNOW WHO GRIZZLY

IN A PLAID SHIRT AND HE HAD A 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!>>HEY.>>HI.>>HEY. SO–
>>I JUST LEFT SOMETHING HERE SO I WAS JUST– I– HAD A KEY–
EARLIER, SEAN GAVE ME A KEY–>>YOU’RE NOT UNDER ARREST, MISS
SMOTHERS. F.Y.I. I HOPE NOT.>>NO, NO, I–
>>YOU’RE VERY FUNNY.>>YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.>>SEAN’S NOT HERE RIGHT NOW.>>YOU KNOW, I WAS ACTUALLY
HOPING TO SPEAK TO YOU.>>OH! ( APPLAUSE )
>>OH! MYSTERIES.>>Stephen: NOW, BLAKE LIVELY
SAID BUTHAT YOU ARE THE HOTTER FAME VERSION OF HER HUSBAND.>>ACCURATE, YEAH.>>Stephen: AND THAT MAKING
OUT WITH YOU WOULD NOT BE CHEATING.>>YEAH, THAT MAKES SENSE. ( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: DOES THAT– DOES

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. IT WAS A GREAT MOMENT. BUT I’M GLAD TO KNOW MY FUTURE
IS SECURE.>>Stephen: I’VE NEVER MET
HER.>>IT WAS MAGICAL.>>Stephen: IS IT REALLY?>>YEAH.>>Stephen: I ASSUME THERE’S
SOME SORT OF AURA–>>SHE WAS BITING HER LIP AND
BEING ESSENTIALLY A TODDLER, BUT THERE WAS SOMETHING —
>>Stephen: OH, BLUE, YOU MEAN.>>YEAH.>>Stephen: OH, I THOUGHT I
THOUGHT YOU WERE SAYING BEYONCE WAS BITING HER LIP AND BEING A
TODDLER, WHICH SHE COULD TOTALLY GET AWAY WITH.>>IF SHE DID THAT, SHE WOULD,
LIKE, MAKE IS CHIC.>>Stephen: ALWAYS A PLEASURE
TO SEE YOU.>>SO NICE TO SEE YOU.>>Stephen: NEXT TIME I SEE
YOU THIS WILL PROBABLY BE GONE?>>THE BEARD.>>Stephen: YEAH.>>WHY.>>Stephen: BECAUSE MY WIFE
REALLY HATES IT. ( APPLAUSE ).>>WELL, I LIKE HER A LOT.>>Stephen: AND I LIKE MY
SMOOCHYS. I LIKE MY SMOOCHYS.>>SHE SEALS LIKE A SMART LADY.>>Stephen: SHE IS A SMART
LADY. “A SIMPLE FAVOR” IS IN THEATERS

  1. hey its 2019 now, i gotta say:

    when NBC tries this with the Tonight Show, it fails

    mustache Jimmy, scruff Jimmy, pfffffftttt!

    Stephen pulls it off! kudos

    its like a young jude Law dumbledore but Gandalfish..

    very cool

    we need a wooden pipe

  2. I'm confused with Stephen! 2 years before this clip you interviewed her and told her "I hear you are a LOTR fan" and talked about it for some minutes but this time you completely forgot about it??

  3. I totally love her humour, she’s so ironic without ever explaining it further for the people who don’t get irony, and I think that’s beautiful.

  4. 8:35 oh no u can't make me….. uh uuu uhhh huh…. okaaaay

    Daaammn that man is adorable and charming x 1000 with his beard that is oooozing swaaaag !!!

    I hate smart girlfrens / wives who won't let men rock their style quotient to the fullest due to their being "careful of other pretty woman" !

  5. Doesn't know who Grizzly Adams is? I was watching Grizzly Adams in the early 80s just a mile or so from where she would live in Maine. There is a small chance I was eating something while watching the show that I pooped out that got put into the fertilizer that grew the food that fed the cow that her parents ate that turned into the sperm or egg that became her. You better do some studying about Grizzly Adams girl!! More likely it was a Buck Rogers episode though. I was in love with Wilma so I was probably thinking about her when I formed the poop and that image traveled with the molecules of poop through several transitions from poop to fertilizer to produce to cow meat and eventually to Anna. I made you pretty Anna!! My poop made you pretty!!!

  6. Black pepper or white pepper, really depends what season you are on [ducks or 🐰]. (I like leatherbackturtles)

  7. Another great movie she was in – The Accountant. She and Ben did an absolutely beautiful job working together!

  8. I need Emilia Clarke and Anna Kendrick to just be in the same room together. The conversation would be a riot and the ultimate blend of charm. The fly in that room would be rollin from laughter.

  9. I don't think she would have called any other president an "a..hole whether in jest or not. Not funny to me, sorry.

  10. Colbert never sits down with his guest at the same time, he always stands over his sitting guest and it's pissing me off! it's so rude!

  11. Colbert: “And I have never been invited … ”

    Colbert: *waits for invitation*

    Kendrick: *smiles* “ … Well now you know.”

    🤣

  12. I always liked Anna and when I read her book I loved her even more and I read it now a couple of times. I gave my Mom the book to read some parts I thought were funny and she was actually really laughing. I told her some more stories about Anna and at the end I did the mistake to tell her about Obama and Anna and how she made him laugh. My Mom found it not even a bit funny and she was like: " I don't think that's funny because I like Obama and he should be president right now". I tried to explain it to her, but she didn't get it. Sorry Anna, I didn't manage to make my Mom love you but I totally do and I hope that's okay for you. ( and I found this stories hilarious)
    Edit: sry for my wrong spelling it's not my native language, I'm still learning hahahaha

  13. Anna is very nice, but somehow this interview left an empty impression on me, I don't know why. Like things were said, but forgettable things. Darn.

  14. The President – Barack Obama :When the US of A 'had' a President.
    Today, they have a character from "When Richie Rich went Crazy" with a Hitler fetish.

  15. how is she a celebrity? She's so vile, not pretty, not interesting, not talented, not anything but a trol who needs to be hidden in a dark closet
