everyone thought she was in her 20s, because she played a college kid in with the pitch perfect." >> i love rebel. i don't care how old she is. so there. last year, an australian tabloid discovered she was 35. >> she's going to turn 36 in march. good for her. >> she talked about it on the show this week. what did she say? >> she said i just didn't mention it. we know about that in hollywood. there's a lot of things going against you, right, fran? did you ever lie about your age in hollywood? >> no. i try not to do that. i don't think it's good for women to feed into that. right? >> good for you. [ laughter ] >> in fact, i have to tell you, i was looking at you and thinking how beautiful you looked. >> see. >> it's not about me but now that it is. >> your face, your hands. i thought wow! >> thank you, sweetheart. frannie and i have been friends for, speaking of age -- about 40 years, i think.
>> now we're worried about the numbers. >> when did you first go to hollywood? >> uh, yeah. probably about -- um, yeah, 38 years ago. >> i rounded it off, fran. >> but don't round it off higher. but i don't think i was being interviewed by the likes of you. >> no. we were all starting our careers at the same time. >> but it has been my whole career, for sure, once i started working. >> don't you love fran? just looking at her. >> i love her body language. >> everything. >> her cleavage. >> she's adorable. all righty. we're going to play our wine bot question now. >> finally! >> it's time. pay attention. we'll show you how to do this. dad of a 12-year-old girl is making news because his daughter showed up late for school. he dropped her off late and the reason was because he was at a springsteen concert. >> with her. >> with her. he took his two daughters to that. instead of saying something else, he told the truth. >> the truth.
>> we're sorry. and, anyway -- so there was apparently a little bit of a blowback from the school that you're taking your kid out to a concert late and then the kid shows up late. the question is -- this is where the wine bot comes in. the question is, is it okay to take your kid out of school for an event unrelated to school? is it okay to take your kid out of school for an event unrelated to school? you say yes. why? make your case. >> i say yes because my parents did it for me when i was growing up. frank and i took our kids all over the world when we had an opportunity to have an experience outside the classroom that would be huge. huge! and would change their life. definitely. education doesn't just come within the school walls. >> that was a great thing. i said -- now my parents were old school, because they really didn't -- we never missed school. we used to have to go if we weren't feeling 100% great. there was none of that stuff. i say look, your kids need to go to school. think about this, though.
out late that night, then they came into school so it feels like it's okay to show up late. >> that wasn't the question. >> i'm just adding to my argument. >> you haven't made your argument. >> my argument is it's not okay. just do this. go to twitter. go to klgandhoda on our twitter thing. you have to #teamhoda. >> no, you don't. [ laughter ] >> what? oh, or you can #teamklg. >> whatever. >> how is this happening? >> come on, people! >> look at this. >> what happens is as you hash tag, our wine glasses fill up. come on, people! show me some love. no, we are not stopping. we are not stopping. look, why don't you go ahead and take your kid out of school for everything? maybe disney world. >> i didn't say that. >> the memory that the kid has
those couple of hours in the classroom. >> yes! >> come on, people. who has the money and means to keep taking their kids everywhere? give me some red wine! >> my parents didn't have the money. they didn't have the money but they found a way to take us everywhere. >> ooh, it's so exciting. >> that almost looks like an utter. >> i so vividly remember my mom saying "let's play hookie today." we went shopping, went to the movie and had a fun day. >> who doesn't love shopping and going to the movies? >> i think i'm winning. >> i'm catching up. if you really try hard there's a slight chance i might catch up. when barbra streisand says let's do lunch, you say when and where. fran drescher dishes. and her latest projects with a lot of heart after this. >> come on, people!le!
