Late Night with Seth Meyers
-your girls are 4 and 2 . -they are 4 and 2. -and, now, i'm assuming. they're not gonna see this film,. but have they seen you on film . and how do they react. when they see you . -my daughters, in general,. loathe to see me on-screen. -uh-huh. -in general, you know . i know, when i was. doing "mary poppins,". i'd even facetime my daughter,. and she'd be like,. "take that silly old. mary poppins wig off. ". she was like,. "i like your blond hair. ". -that's lovely. -but, actually, we were having. a super bowl party,. and the trailer for. "quiet place" came on,. which is terrifying. -yeah. -and hazel sort of wandered in. with a hot dog in hand. and she goes like this --. she goes, "whoa. ". that's you, mommy. ". and i was like, "yeah. ". and then there was. a bit where i scream. i don't know if. anyone's seen the trailer,. but i'm literally like [screams]. at the end of the trailer. and she -- you could see. her brain exploding. but, instead,. she went, "ha. cool. ". and then, like, walked out. and never talked about it again. -well, that's the key. to parenting is --. when a traumatic thing happens,. just let them. deal on it on their own. -listen, that's how. i was raised. that's like the british way. -that's the british way. they know something. painful's happened to you. give it 10 years. -sweep it under the carpet. yeah. -are you -- you must be excited. for them to see "mary poppins. ". -well, they are in love with. julie andrews' mary poppins. -okay. and had they. been in love --. i mean, i guess they're not. old enough to have been. in love with it for a long time,. but how long have they seen --. -well, i never. showed it to them. during my shooting of the film,. partly 'cause i just selfishly. didn't want to be so distracted. by how brilliant julie andrews. was in the role,. already feeling that there was. this, like, iconic boulder. that i had to, like,. move aside to play this part. -were you worried that, like,. your kids will see this one. and be like, "you're our. second-favorite mary poppins" . -oh, i'm not even on the list. they're, like, creepy obsessed. with julie andrews now, yeah. -that will be a terrifying. moment, then, for you. that will be scarier than. "a quiet place,". having to watch. your kids react to it. -yeah, i just don't even think. they should see "mary poppins. ". like, they should. never watch it. -this will be your third film. with meryl streep. -i know. it's like, "get your own movie. ". you know what i mean . -exactly. thank you for saying that,. 'cause i thought the same thing. -stalker. yeah, and we always play people. who sort of loathe each other. in the films that we do. -is there truth to the rumor. "the devil wears prada" --. there might be another. "devil wears prada" . -i mean, i would love it. -yeah. [ cheers and applause ]. we all would. -did you know stanley tucci. is my brother-in-law . -i did know that stanley tucci. was your brother-in-law. -he, like, wormed. his way into the family. -but he wasn't during. the first "devil wears --". -no. so, we met on. the first movie. i'm talking about like. there is another movie. we met on the. first "devil wears prada. ". and i just loved him so much,. so he was at our wedding. and then met my sister. -that's unbelievable. -i know. -and they've been married. for a while now, right . -they've been married --. i don't even know how long. -too long. -too long. yeah. and when you met john, he was. already on "the office," yes . -he was, yeah. -and were you aware of. that show when you met him . -i was sort of aware that. he was vaguely recognizable,. but i was a huge --. -that's so romantic. -yeah. it was like. "you look blurily familiar. ". yeah. but i was a big fan. of the british "office. ". -uh-huh. that's what the people on the. american "office" love to hear. -yeah, exactly. and then i sort of binge-watched. the american "office". and loved it. -and how did you guys meet . -it's, like,. kind of a sad, lame story. you know, not sad,. but it's just kind of lame. i mean, i was in a restaurant. he was in the restaurant. i was sitting with. a mutual friend. this is our romantic comedy. this is it. write it!. -this is paul and meredith. -and my friend gray goes,. "oh, my god. there's my friend john. ". and that was it. -oh, really . -yeah. -and he came over to the table . -guys, it's golden. it's cinema gold. -it is really good. did he -- i'm sorry to ask. for the logistics to this. did he then come over and. eat his meal with you . -no. he was actually sitting. with our friend justin theroux. -okay. -and then he abandoned justin. and came over to come. and talk to us. he did not eat. he just stood there. and made me laugh. yeah. -there you go. and it's worked out. -he just did a bit. -and all these years later. and did you know right away . i'm sorry to dig in here. -i kind of did. -yeah. -yeah. -that's good. -am i speaking to "us weekly" . i love you. i'm sorry. -i just want to make it clear. that you guys, as stars,. are just like us. -i know. i am just like you guys. yeah. -but i'm so happy. -it really is -- i mean,. for waiting to see you guys. work together, i never would. have predicted this film. and it just so wonderful. that you guys did it. -it's so disturbing. -yeah, it's really disturbing,. but it's really great. -it's so good. i'm thrilled you love it. it's sort of been. overwhelming, actually,. 'cause we were really nervous. to work together,. and terrified --. john, in general,. was sort of terrified of, like,. how people will view this film. or whether they'll accept it. and people have just been. incredible about it. they just love it. -well, they're right. it's really wonderful. and thank you so much. for being here. it's just a delight to have you. -hey, anytime. .
