( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( BAND PLAYING )
>> Stephen: HI.
HI!
NICE TO MEET YOU.
SO NICE TO MEET YOU.
>> Stephen: I’VE NEVER INTERVIEWED YOU BEFORE.
>> NO.
>> Stephen: I’VE LEARNED SOMETHING ABOUT YOU TODAY.
WELL, YOU’RE A VEGAN.
>> YEAH.
>> Stephen: TRUE STORY.
THIS TIME LAST YEAR, I BECAME A VEGAN.
>> WHAT?!
>> Stephen: YEAH.
THAT’S AMAZING!
>> Stephen: WELL, WAIT TILL THE END TO HAVE THE STORY.
>> OKAY.
BUT YOU’RE TRYING.
>> Stephen: I DID SEVEN MONTHS PRETTY STRICT.
BUT THEN AT A CERTAIN POINT, THERE’S ONLY SO MUCH ROASTED
CAULIFLOWER ONE MAN CAN EAT AND I’VE FALLEN OFF THE WAGON
SLIGHTLY.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A VEGAN?
>> I HAVE BEEN DOING IT — THE FIRST TIME I BECAME VEGETARIAN
IS WHEN MY BROTHER WAS ON THE PLANE WITH ME MAKING THE SOUNDS
OF THE ANIMAL I WAS EATING.
>> Stephen: HOW OLD WERE YOU?
I WAS 8.
>> Stephen: WHAT WERE YOU EATING?
>> LAMB.
ON AN AIRPLANE.
>> Stephen: WHICH FLIGHT?
PAN AM, PROBABLY, MY MOM WAS A FLIGHT ATTENDANT.
>> Stephen: YOUR BROTHER WAS BAA-ING?
>> YES.
IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT’S WHAT I WAS EATING, THEN BECAME
VEGETARIAN.
ON AND OFF, I FLIRTED WIT IN.
MY BOOK I WROTE, I TALKED ABOUT FLIRTING, SO IT’S DOING THE BEST
YOU CAN.
WHEN I GOT TO 2 IS, I SAW FOOTAGE OF HOW WE ACTUALLY GET
THE ANIMALS WE EAT.
>> Stephen: KEEP IT LIGHT.
ALL RIGHT.
>> Stephen: ARE YOU A SMUG VEGAN OR ARE YOU, LIKE, LISTEN
TO, EACH HIS OWN?
>> I THINK THAT’S WHAT I’M SAYING.
I ULTIMATELY SUPER SUPPORT ANY PROGRESS IN THAT DIRECTION.
SO I HOPE THAT EVERYONE WILL JUST TRY IT A LITTLE.
READ THE BOOK, TRY IT AND DO THE BEST YOU CAN.
>> Stephen: I WENT TO A BASEBALL GAME WITH JOHN ON
FRIDAY.
>> YOU DID?
>> Stephen: I SAT DOWN AND SAID TWO HOT DOGS AND A BEER
WITHOUT THINKING.
>> THEY HAVE VEGGIE DOGS AT THE BASEBALL GAME.
>> Stephen: NOT AT THE METS.
DODGERS DO.
>> Stephen: IT’S LOS ANGELES, OF COURSE THEY DO!
( LAUGHTER ) THEY WALK AROUND WITH SUSHI!
>> IT’S WONDERFUL!
>> Stephen: NOW, YOU’RE AN ENVIRONMENTALIST, AS WELL.
AND I UNDERSTAND, AND I DON’T KNOW HOW THIS CAME ABOUT, YOU
WERE BRIEFLY AN ECOADVISOR TO DONALD TRUMP?
>> YES.
>> Stephen: HOW?
( LAUGHTER ) AND HOW LONG?
>> THE DATE, I’M NOT SURE.
>> Stephen: YOU WENT ON A DATE WITH DONALD TRUMP?
( LAUGHTER ) WELL, A DATE TO TALK ABOUT SOLAR
PANELS.
>> Stephen: OKAY.
BUT THE DATE IT OCCURRED ON, I BELIEVE, WAS ABOUT 10 YEARS
AGO OR SO.
>> Stephen: OKAY.
HIS NAME AND NUMBER IS IN MY PHONE STILL.
>> Stephen: DO YOU HAVE IT?
I BROUGHT IT OUT.
WE SHOULD CALL.
>> Stephen: YES.
I’M VERY TEMPTED TO KNOW IF THE NUMBER STILL WORKS.
>> Stephen: I BET IT DOES.
MINE STILL WORKS.
HE CAN REACH OUT IF HE NEEDS TO ADDRESS THIS.
( LAUGHTER ) BUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS I WAS
ON ONE OF THE OTHER TALK SHOWS IN THE DAYTIME TALKING ABOUT
SOLAR PANELS AND SILK MILK AND THEY WERE DOING THIS GREAT
THING, AND HE SAID HE WAS REALLY INTERESTED, AND WE EXCHANGED
NUMBERS SO THAT WE COULD CONTINUE THIS CONVERSATION ABOUT
SOLAR PANELS.
SO I MET WITH HIM IN — ( LAUGHTER )
RIGHT?
I KNOW.
BUT IT WAS WORTH IT TO TAKE THE MEETING!
BECAUSE IF I COULD GET HIM TO HAVE EVERY BUILDING HAVE SOLAR
PANELS ON IT WOULDN’T THAT BE A GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT?
SO I’LL TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM.
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
REALLY, I’M JUST TEASING!
I DIDN’T DO ANYTHING!
BUT — I’M TOTALLY JOKING.
I SAT DOWN WITH HIM, AND WE HAD A VERY LOVELY CONVERSATION.
HE WAS VERY CHARMING AND HE WAS VERY KIND AND WE TALKED ABOUT IT
ALL.
HE WAS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE FINANCIAL ASPECT OF IT,.
>> Stephen: SURE, YEAH.
AT THAT TIME THEY WERE QUITE EXPENSIVE AND AT THE TIME HE DID
NOT CHOOSE TO PUT SOLAR PANELS ON HIS BUILDING.
MAYBE NOW HE HAS.
>> Stephen: SEEMS LIKE HIM ( LAUGHTER )
>> ANYWAY, THAT’S ALL THAT HAPPENED WITH DONALD AND I.
>> Stephen: NO ONE IS SAYING ANYTHING ELSE.
( LAUGHTER ) >> THIS AUDIENCE IS.
>> Stephen: WELL, NOW YOU’VE GOT A NEW SERIES ON PARAMOUNT
NETWORK CALLED “AMERICAN WOMAN.”
>> YES.
>> Stephen: YOU PLAY BONNIE, A MOTHER IN THE EARLY ’70s.
>> BONNIE IS A FIRE CRACKER.
SHE’S A WOMAN WHO BASICALLY DOES REALLY WILD — SHE MAKES VERY
WILD CHOICES.
SHE’S VERY REBELLIOUS AND AT ONE POINT SHE’S BEING CHASED — SHE
LOVES HER CHILDREN VERY MUCH BUT MAKES REALLY IRRESPONSIBLE
CHOICES AT TIMES, OR SO I THINK.
SHE’S DRIVING ALONG AND THESE MEN ARE SAYING REALLY AWFUL
THINGS TO HER IN A CAR AND BEING SORT OF NASTY, AND HER KIDS ARE
GETTING VERY NERVOUS, SO SHE PULLS OVER IN THE CAR, GETS OUT
OF THE CAR, WALKS OVER TO THEM AND SAYS, BASICALLY, I’M GOING
TO KILL YOU IF YOU’RE NOT CAREFUL, AND, YOU KNOW, PUTS HER
HAND IN THIS FACE.
THIS IS A TRUE STORY, THIS IS WHAT KYLE RICHARDS’ MOTHER DID.
>> Stephen: THIS IS TRUE?
THIS IS BASED ON KYLE RICHARDS’ MOTH SNORE WE KNOW YOU
FROM CLUELESS.
HOW OLD IS YOUR CHILD?
>> SEVEN YEARS OLD.
>> Stephen: HAVE YOU LET HIM WATCH IT YET?
>> I WOULDN’T HAVE BECAUSE IT’S NOT APPROPRIATE FOR —
>> Stephen: IT’S NOT THAT BAD OTHER THAN THE CREEPY THING WITH
YOUR STEP BROTHER.
( LAUGHTER ) >> YEAH, I MEAN, IT’S NOT THAT
BAD, YOU’RE RIGHT, BUT I TOOK HIM TO SEE IT BECAUSE IT WAS AT
THE L.A. CEMETERY WHERE THEY SHOW, LIKE, 4,000 PEOPLE.
>> Stephen: YOU TOOK YOUR SON TO A CEMETERY TO SEE A YOUR
FILM?
>> YES.
THERE WERE 4,000 PEOPLE AT A HUGE SCREEN OUTDOORS AT NIGHT IN
A CEMETERY, LAYING DOWN, THERE WERE PILLOWS AND ROSEƉ, AND HE
LOVED IT.
ONE THING HE TOOK AWAY IS HE KEPT TRYING TO FRENCH KISS ME
AFTERWARDS.
WHICH WAS VERY SWEET.
>> Stephen: YEAH.
AND YOU SAID THAT’S NOT APPROPRIATE?
>> I JUST KEPT MY MOUTH CLOSED.
THAT’S WHAT I DID.
AND I JUST GIGGLED.
IT’S SUPER SWEET.
>> Stephen: IT IS SUPER SWEET.
YEAH.
ARE YOU WORRIED?
>> Stephen: NOPE.
OKAY.
( LAUGHTER ) IT’S FINE, HE’S NOT DOING IT
ANYMORE.
>> Stephen: GOOD.
THAT’S WHAT HIS TAKEAWAY WAS.
( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: DON’T TAKE DONALD
TRUMP TO SEE THAT MOVIE.
( LAUGHTER ) SO NICE TO MEET YOU.
>> THANK YOU.
>> Stephen: THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
>> SO NICE TO MEET YOU.
>> Stephen: “AMERICAN WOMAN” AIRS THURSDAYS ON THE PARAMOUNT
NETWORK.
