[ laughter ] overacting. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: wait, what? >> oh, i'm not kidding. overacting big time. i was on stage, in "richard iii." i was playing the
and i had a cane. and i was wildly gesturing to the two actors next to me. [ laughter ] and i knocked myself in the nose with my cane so hard that blood came out of both nostrils. i had to literally back off stage while they talked to get kleenex to shove it up my nose so i wouldn't bleed all over the stage. and it hurt like hell, but i didn't think i broke my nose. so, i never checked it out. [ laughter ] now, come in close to my face. come in close. now, look, this is what the doctor said. he said, "breathe through your nose." and i went -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, yeah, i see that. >> only breathing through one nostril. >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. >> so, just let me say this. all the stuff i've been doing for the last four years, running, tennis, concerts, "house of cards." >> jimmy: "house of cards," yeah. >> without my full capacity, you just wait until i get this sucker fixed!

[ laughter ] >> working alright, yeah. >> jimmy: yeah, because you have the "house of cards" premiering march 4th. you had this big shindig over at the smithsonian. >> last night. giant thing. one of the coolest things i think i could even consider, you go in character, as frank underwood. >> yes, last night, what's happened is a wonderful artist from britain has done a a portrait of me as frank underwood. and last night, we unveiled it like it was a real presidential portrait being unveiled at the smithsonian where it's going to hang. >> jimmy: look at this thing. this is -- >> oh, there it is. >> jimmy: is this hanging right now or not yet? [ laughter ] >> it starts tomorrow morning. >> jimmy: tomorrow morning. >> so this will be in the front hall as you walk into the smithsonian, and if they hang it just high enough, you're gonna think i'm going to kick you in the face.

there. [ laughter and applause ] okay. i want to talk to you about master class 'cause i'm gonna sign up for this. >> you could use a masterclass. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: no, no, i did -- no, that's not my question. my question is everyone's welcome, right? >> everyone is welcome. >> jimmy: masterclass.com. you go to it, and they choose kevin spacey, and you will teach me how to act. >> what i did was, i did a a workshop in august with 20 actors who auditioned. they all do monologues. i give them directions, and then, we cut it up into about 20 -- more than 20 chapters. and they're all about maybe 10, 15, 20 minutes long. and i love doing workshops. i've been doing it for 20 years. but this is the first time i ever allowed one to be completely filmed. and serena williams did one. a whole lot of people have done them. and it's a great way for -- >> jimmy: acting classes? >> no, no, serena did a tennis class. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i like to see her take the acting. that'd be funny. >> actually, that would be pretty cool. >> jimmy: that would be not bad. yeah, yeah, yeah. no, but i would do that. i totally would sign up. i'm excited about this. this is the future right here. >> it was great. >> jimmy: imagine how many
>> for me, one of the reasons i love doing it is because i was somebody who got to go to these kind of classes when i was a a kid. and i did one with jack lemon when i was 13 years old. and it was almost a a life-changing moment for me. >> jimmy: can you tell the story about al pacino and "glengarry glen ross"? he told this backstage. this is the truth. >> this is a great story. this is a story about how an actor can be incredibly generous to another actor. so, i did this movie with pacino called, "glengarry glen ross." [ cheers and applause ] sheep applause, thank you. i had this scene where pacino had to chew me out. he had to call me every name in the book. and so, we come to shoot the scene. i have no dialogue. i'm just standing there while he walks like this around the room and just tears into me. and so, i didn't know this, but he told the sound department not to record because he was off camera. it's just my close-up. and he started saying stuff that was about me. like, "oh, kevin, we know how you got this job. don't we?" [ laughter ] and he kept going on and going on. >> jimmy: personal and mean. >> he got personal and mean.
looked like a car wreck. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and we cut. and al walked over and went, "oh, that was so good. your reaction was so real. that was terrific." [ laughter ] "they didn't record that. i just -- i just wanted you to -- you know, i was giving you that because if you saw me tomorrow, on the street, and yelled across the street, 'hey, al, i hear about what you did last night!' i would jump, because, you know, we're all guilty." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i mean, that's a a fantastic story. and they use that footage -- >> so that i would react the way my character was supposed to react. and it was fantastically generous. >> jimmy: there's lessons like that you can learn from masterclass.com. but i wanted to play a game with you tonight if you don't mind. i was wondering if we could have kids judge our acting, and i will act with you. i'll explain. >> certainly. >> jimmy: is that cool? after the break. i'll explain more with

[ cheers and applause ] thank you. thank you, thank you, thank you. this year, gatesletter.com, check it out, it is based on you're talking to high school kids in kentucky. and they say, "if you had a a superpower what would it be?" and you split this letter up into two. melinda, you answered, and bill, you answered separately, but still kind of connected. what was your answer? >> my answer is if i could have any superpower, it would be time. you know, we all we only have 24 hours in the day. >> jimmy: yeah. and i fundamentally have come to believe through this work that to empower women to reach their potential, we need to give them back time. if you look at what women do all over the world -- [ cheers and applause ] at home they do all this unpaid work that we don't call work, whether it is caring for a a child, which they like to do or an elderly person, but it's also chores.
four hours a day of unpaid work that we don't think of as work, and around the world it is four and a half hours and some places, six. and i think if we could give them that time back or some of it, redistribute it so husbands help them do some of the work. [ cheers and applause ] yes! they would really reach their full potential. >> jimmy: that's great, right? bill? [ laughter ] >> absolutely. >> jimmy: in a nut shell, what was your answer? >> energy. energy is pretty fundamental. the idea you can just flip that light switch comes on or sets the temperature. there's still a lot of people who don't have that. over a billion, and yet, we need to build out all this energy in a way that avoids climate change. so we need a lot of innovation, so i'd talk about the fact that we got to invest in it, and the next generation has to come along and do the science, so we move quickly to get a a breakthrough in energy innovation. >> jimmy: you're always up for -- any new ideas or some fun thing.
