>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight, annette bening, director paul thomas anderson, "this week in unnecessary censorship," and music from sylvan esso. and now, more than ever, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: welcome. that's very nice. hi there, i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thanks for watching. thanks for coming.
i dreamed about you last night. that's very nice. i have did say, i'm excited. i had a big day. i hosted hq trivia today. you play hq on your phone, you're aware of it? [ cheers and applause ] if you don't know, hq is a trivia app founded by a pair of developers who wanted to answer a relatively simple question which was, how can we make 500,000 people feel stupid all at the same time? [ laughter ] if you've ever seen a group of people gathered around a phone at exactly 3:00 yelling "genghis khan, it's genghis khan!" you've seen people playing hq. i hosted today and it was fun. i read the questions, i gave the answers. you feel a lot smart where you already know the answers. i felt like alex trebek today. thanks to hq for letting me do that. guillermo and cousin sal and i introduced the game. we played with my aunt chippy today. later on we'll show you how that went. didn't go that well to be honest with you. president trump tomorrow will do what 9 million low-income american kids soon won't be
ryan and mitch mcconnell, he will get a checkup, his first annual checkup since taking office. and may god have mercy on the doctor who has to see him naked. [ laughter ] in advance of the physical -- [ cheers and applause ] -- the white house released the official presidential x-ray today. it is very interesting-looking. [ laughter ] the most interesting revelation was, the contents of the president's stomach, if you look closely you can see that at some point over the last few months the president either ingested or swallowed a maryland license plate. [ laughter ] as well as part of what appears to be a tractor tire. two happy meals. still in box. a key fob to a maserati with a key chain that says "the mooch." he's got about 5,000 fried chicken bones in there. three remote controls. and at first i wasn't sure what this was. until we zoomed in. i saw
turns out it's mike pence's wedding ring. [ add moaning ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: the president had another preposterous day today. on twitter this morning he did something very, very trumpy. he tweeted a new quinnipiac poll, 66% of people feel the economy is excellent or good. that is the highest number ever recorded by this poll. true, the part of the poll he didn't mention is far more of the people polled believe president obama's responsible for the stronger economy, not him. 49% to 40%. not only that, 63% of those polled said president trump is not honest. and 56% give him an "f" or "d" grade for his first year in office. same poll that he tweeted. what a day it was today. they're all big days but this one. president trump today, he rejected a
childhood arrivals program, daca, which is the program that protects young immigrants who are brought to the united states as children, people like melania. [ laughter ] who wound up here and -- [ applause ] apparently what trump objected to in the bipartisan plan was the senators from both sides who wanted to restore protections for immigrants from haiti, el salvador ask, a handful of african countries. they had to be rescued from difficult situations in those countries. not only did trump reject the plan, he said, and before i share what specifically he said, i would like you to keep in mind this is an actual quote from the actual president of the united states. >> we can put this up on screen and explain this. i apologize for using this word here. but this is a quote from the president. why are we having all these people from [ bleep ] hole countries come here? trump said, this is in "the washington post," according to these people who are in the meeting, referring to african countries and
united states go about bringing in people from other countries like norway, whose prime minister he met with yesterday. [ audience booing ] >> jimmy: i'm sure the fact that countries he described as [ bleep ] holes are mostly populated by people of color, and the immigrants he wants from norway are not, is a coincidence. [ laughter ] if it wasn't, it would mean we voted for a racist, like a real one, and we'd have to get pitchforks and chase him out of the white house. i also assume the white house would deny he said that. they did not. they just tried to spin it. it really is unfathomable. you just can't believe that this is the guy running our country. the only silver lining, and this is a small silver lining. the only silver lining action we got to hear wolf blitzer say this all day. >> s-hole, s-hole, s-hole, s-hole, s-hole, s-hole, s-hole. >> jimmy: what an s-hole.
[ cheers and applause ] that would make a great alarm clock. so anyway. thanks, vlad putin, you really got us good. [ laughter ] meanwhile, russia, i don't know if you heard this, russia has a new target. hacking-wise. the olympics. russia, as you probably know, russia has been banned from the winter olympics because they give their athletes performance-enhancing drugs. apparently a group of hackers linked to the russian government are releasing e-mails stolen from the international olympic committee to punish them. the hackers call themselves fancy bears. which happens to be the name of an upscale gay bar i'm opening next month. [ laughter ] i want to invite you, guillermo, and everyone you know, okay? >> guillermo: okay, all right. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: speaking of bears. i have exciting news for parents. padding ton 2 opens in movie theaters tomorrow. paddi indin
paddington 2, the sequel to paddington 1. a family movie. the last few years r-rated movies have been reliesing trailers with adult language and graphic content. g-rated movies don't get red banned trailers which seems unfair. we decided to do something about that. with that said, on behalf of our entire organization, i'm proud to present our first-ever red banned trailer for "paddington 2." >> announcer: dear aunt lucy, you sent me to london to find a home. i've got a grip on how things work. ♪ ♪ ♪ i like the way you sex me >> you have to be very careful with knives. >> hold it right there! >> i may look like a hardened criminal, but i'm innocent.

good, you got your glasses. >> i got my glasses. >> sal: you have 10 seconds to answer and it goes by like that, really fast, really fast goes fast. >> jimmy: let me just clean those for you. >> you spit on them to clean them? >> jimmy: yeah, that's how you do it. >> then you use a dirty shirt to clean them off? >> jimmy: it was a clean shirt. we have 10 seconds to answer these questions. we have to decide between us what the answer is. i'm going to let you -- >> can we yell the answer out? >> sal: you have to push the button. >> jimmy: it's noon. pacific time. it's time to play hq. >> guillermo: ready? >> sal: yeah! >> jimmy: good luck, aunt chippy. >> guillermo: you got this, you got this. >> five, four, three, two, one -- >> jimmy: time to play hq. >> which of these is usually worn on a finger? >> ring. >> ring, cowboy hat, bow tie? >> sal: are you sure? >> jimmy: i'm
>> if you like it you better put a ring on it. >> jimmy: it's ring, all right, all right. we got the first one. oh, howard stern. >> howard stern is king of all what? malaysia, mead yores, media? >> i'd say media. >> jimmy: yes, oh nice. >> sal: just got that in. >> the correct answer is media. >> jimmy: wow, we got two right. what if we win this? >> i'm going home, going to the casino. >> featuring 20 scoops of ice cream, the vermontster is found on what chain's menu? baskin-robbins, dairy queen, ben and jerry's? >> jimmy: ben and jerry's is in vermont, i'd go with that. >> sal: you missed it! >> jimmy: we said it was ben and jerry's, it was ben and jerry's. >> guillermo: how come you didn't push it, aunt chippy? >> sal: look at you, 2 out of 12. >> that is really it? >> jimmy: that is really
>> that is bull [ bleep ]. you dragged my ass out here for this piece of [ bleep ]? >> jimmy: we did, yes. sorry about that. in a way i feel you let us down, though. >> sal: you owe us, aunt chippy. >> i'll give you the $2,000, it's in my death drawer. >> jimmy: where's that purse? >> it's in the death drawer. did you hear about the death drawer, jimmy? is that what people do? >> guillermo: she has a credit card in there? >> jimmy: is that a lighter or a lipstick? >> it's a lipstick. >> jimmy: oh, here's a lighter. >> there's a lighter. >> sal: condoms? >> jerk. >> jimmy: i don't see $2,000 in here, aunt chippy. >> sal: why don't we each take a credit cart? >> jimmy: is this your phone? no wonder we lost, you have a cricket phone. >> yeah, i have a cricket phone. >> jimmy: hello, hq? oh, geez. >> sal: it's from 1985. >> what's the matter with you, i'm going to leave that to you
when i'm done. >> jimmy: thank you, i'll take it now. this will be your down payment in lieu of $2,000. all right, there you go, that was hq. the big lesson is, you can't play hq on a cricket phone. >> sal: it's true. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i guess that's a flaw. cricket phone. all right. meanwhile, while we're having fun, there was a health crisis happening in florida right now. monkeys in florida have herpes. for real. wildlife officials in the state of florida are talking about banning certain monkeys from the state because they become infected with herpes b. how did monkeys get herpes? how hammered are people getting on spring break there? apparently they tried to teach the monkeys safe sex. but every time they put the condom on the banana, they would eat it. now florida wants to get rid of monkeys. which i don't know, maybe we should keep the monkey asks get rid of florida, seems more reasonable. [ cheers and applause ]

but you know, you're in your 60s. he's like, i know, but i think i could do it. >> jimmy: well, that would -- hey, maybe years down the road a 60-year-old -- well, that's unbelievable. he wanted to play dirk digler, that's crazy. did he ever see the movie and talk to you about it afterwards? >> he, did he really enjoyed it, he thought mark did a good job. >> jimmy: those two, they're so interchangeable, i mean, really. did you start making movies when you were a little boy? >> yeah. >> jimmy: running around with a camera? >> yeah. >> jimmy: what kind of camera did you have? >> we had a few. i started out before there was video cameras, i had the super 8 camera. luckily i was in the generation video cameras came out, beta max, this big, had a big pack that hung off your shoulder. >> jimmy: right, yeah, there was a cable going to the -- you had to have it trailing you at all times. >> exactly right. >> jimmy: what kind of movies would you make? >> oh, you know. standard blood and guts stuff. generally war fis.
>> jimmy: war films? >> of course, that was like -- going to the woods and shoot people. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: who were the stars of your movies when you were a kid? >> my brother. my brother and i. my younger sister. as soon as you tried to talk them into doing things, you realized they'd kind of fall off, they didn't want to be cast anymore. you'd go to the younger and younger siblings. >> jimmy: yeah, so in sports you could do that also. like no, we don't want to play. but i need a whole team! would you have screenings for your family, for your parents or whatever? >> mostly, yeah. you know, one time we made -- my brother and i made a film. we were up late at night, we were watching something on television that we shouldn't have been watching. and so we were filming away from the television while we were making this film. and in the film there's a charlie mccarthy doll that comes to life and attacks my brother and kills him. it was actually a
[ laughter ] we really kind of got it together and made it look good. and we realized that the sound coming from the television, which was kind of x-rated, sort of made screening the film for our parents impossible. >> jimmy: ah, they would know what you were up to. >> yeah. >> jimmy: i tell you what, if you are passionate enough about film to pull yourselves away from like a cinemax porno movie, at that point you know your kid is really on to something. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i'd be sitting in front of the tv. so your dad, and i love this so much, your dad ernie anderson, was the voice of abc, the television network, during the great days of television, the '70s. in fact, we have a clip. because i think people will enjoy seeing this. >> it is a special night on "the love boat." the captain's past catches up with him. >> are y
about sex? >> and will a beautiful heiress become a nightclub stripper on "fantasy island"? >> jimmy: that's so good, why don't we have beautiful heiresses becoming nightclub strippers? did you think that was cool when you'd hear your dad's voice on television? ness yeah. >> jimmy: yeah, sure. some kids don't think what their parents do is cool. >> no, i thought it was really cool. i loved going to work with him at abc, prospect and tallman's, get to watch him work. that's entertainment! that's incredible. >> jimmy: did you ever get to meet herve or ricardo montalban or anything? >> no, we were in a recording studio. he would read the copy they gave him. >> jimmy: when he yelled at you, would it be deep voice, paul, get to your room right now? >> yes. >> jimmy: yes, yes. daniel day lewis is the star of your new movie which is great, "phantom thread," beautiful movie, and weirdly funny. i don't know if that was part of
but there is like a lot of humor in the film. >> yeah, i mean -- >> jimmy: am i wrong on that? >> no, you're right. i think the impression people might get about daniel is that he's very serious. >> jimmy: yes. i do. he's not? >> he's not. i mean, no, he's not. >> jimmy: what is an example? like what does he -- like for him, because i've heard these stories about him, staying in character for like months, weeks at a time. >> months. >> jimmy: months at a time. he does do that? >> absolutely he does that, yeah. you go to -- you don't go to work with daniel day lewis, you go to work with whoever his character is. that's who you see when you get to the morning, that's who leaves at night. >> jimmy: that doesn't drive you insane if you have something to talk to him about, making a plan of some kind? >> you don't make plans. >> jimmy: you don't make plans. he jokes around? >> he'll joke in character. >> jimmy: really. >> yeah. i know it sounds bizarre but from a
you have your own three-dimensional character living there for you. you follow him and film him. >> jimmy: the character he plays, his last name is woodcock, first name? >> reynolds. >> jimmy: reynolds woodcokk. when he gets the script does he go, come on, what are you doing, i'm daniel day lewis. >> he came up with the name. [ laughter ] he has a good sense of humor. you should see his tim gunn impression. >> jimmy: he knows tim gunn. >> i know, you should hear daniel say "designers" like tim gunn. >> jimmy: i can't imagine him watching television to be honest with you. >> he has -- honestly for the world's greatest actor the worst taste in television. >> jimmy: what does he watch? >> he was particularly obsessed a few years ago with "naked and afraid." [ laughter ] do you know that one? >> jimmy: yes. >>
he'd say, you've got to see "naked and afraid." yeah. each week he'd tune in. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: he said he's retiring from acting. was that at the conclusion of shooting this movie? >> well, yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay, so was that good or bad? that at the end of your movie he decided he's never going to act again? [ laughter ] >> yeah, i suppose it suggests either he had such a good time doing it that he didn't want to bother trying to top the experience. >> jimmy: that never even occ occurred to me, but yeah, uh-huh. [ laughter ] or the other thing. >> jimmy: did you do anything to try to talk him out of this? do you think this is something that he will stick with? >> it's -- i don't know. >> jimmy: you don't know. >> >> i don't know but i'm going to wait awhile before i try to talk him into something else. >> jimmy: is it possible this is part of his weird sense of humor? >> that's good, that's good. >> jimmy: maybe we figured something out there, yeah. the movie is -- all your movies are great.
