dan: i am dan ashley. , serena williams. >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- serena williams. and music from j balvin. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thank you, thank you. thank you, everyone. thanks. thank you, thank you. hi, guys. well, that's very nice. thanks. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching and thank you for joining us here in -- wow, it was a beautiful day here in sunny southern california, where as of yesterday we started giving the vaccine to kids aged 5 and up. [ cheers ] finally, our kids will be able to go to bars and nightclubs again.
[ laughter ] isn't that great? this has been a very bittersweet week for children. on sunday, you get a bag full of candy. three days later, you get a needle in your arm. [ laughter ] welcome to life, kids! the white house is doing their part to get shots in us. team biden today announced that more than 100 million american workers are required to be fully vaccinated by january 4th. and if i know my fellow american workers, everyone's going to be super chill about that. [ laughter ] like the drunkest friend at a bachelor party, joe biden's going to make sure everyone gets shots! [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] a lot of people are wondering what it's going to be like at the office now with a vaccine mandate, how we will know who is vaccinated, who -- for those who are wondering that, this is what it's going to be like. >> guys, welcome to my vaccine status reveal party. now the moment of truth. am i vaccinated? let's see. ♪ >> yay! >> oh!
>> i'm not vaccinated. >> idiot. >> oh [ bleep ]. >> where are you going? >> [ bleep ]. >> i take horse pills! [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i miss those office parties, i really do. [ applause ] speaking of unvaccinated co-workers, there is some potentially good employment news for kyrie irving of the brooklyn nets. they have a new mayor in new york, eric adams, who says he's going to reconsider the city's vaccine mandate when he takes office in january. if that happens, it could mean kyrie will be back on the court. i hope he's able to finish his research first. [ laughter ] you know he's been doing his own research. what if he enjoys that so much he decides to become a researcher full-time? [ laughter ] green bay packers quarterback aaron rodgers is in quarantine. a-rodg tested positive yesterday for covid and will miss sunday's game against the chiefs. he will be watching from mahome. [ laughter ] [ moans ] no one seemed to know he wasn't vaccinated. he hasn't been wearing a mask, even where it's required.
at one point he claimed he was "immunized." looking back when he said it, it should have been obvious that he was not. >> airplane, you said you like to learn as many things as you can, hang in any conversation. are you vaccinated and what's your stance on vaccinationed? >> yeah, i've been "immunized." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, did you notice the air quotes? that's how we know. we now know he's not vaxxed because unvaccinated players who test positive have to isolate for ten days. had he been vaccinated, he would have had a chance to play this weekend. aaron rodgers reportedly received a "homeopathic treatment" over the summer instead of the vaccine. you know, we should have known. nothing says "i heal myself with crystals" like this haircut. that little knot on top? [ laughter ] aaron is a karen. that's the fact of the matter. [ laughter and applause ] honestly, the only thing worse than not getting vaccinated when you're in close contact with other people is letting them think you're vaccinated when you're not.
it's basically the covid equivalent of "the condom fell off." [ laughter ] it's funny that the companies who make the vaccine, we have no problem using their other stuff. no one worries about advil and robitussin. celebrex. whatever the hell that is. these pharmaceutical companies make a lot of stuff we take. for years and years. not just the vaccine. and one of them wants to remind us of that. >> times have been tough. but tough is what pfizer is all about. we're proud to have developed a life-saving vaccine in record time. protecting over 100 million americans from covid-19. allowing communities to come together again. and while we heal, we want to remind you -- we still make boner pills. [ laughter ] the original boner pills.
[ cheers and applause ] the best boner pills. trust us to vaccinate your kids. if it wasn't for our boner pills, you might not even have kids. happy holidays from pfizer. the boner people. >> available at walgreens. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: puts it in perspective, you know? amazon just reached a settlement with drivers for amazon flex to pay back more than $60 million worth of tips that were illegally withheld. some amazon drivers were supposed to get an hourly wage plus 100% of their tips. but amazon lowered the hourly wage and used the tip money to make up the difference. so now they're giving the money back. there were complaints. it must have felt great to be an amazon driver. waiting months to get a few hundred dollars in tips while your boss takes an unnecessary trip to outer space, right? [ laughter ] meanwhile, facebook last week changed its name to "meta."
as in "we all meta huge mistake when we signed up for facebook." [ laughter and applause ] it was surprising news to everybody, particularly for a computer company in arizona called "meta pc." they filed a trademark application for the name "meta" months ago. and now, their name has been swallowed up. but one of the owners of "meta pc" is doing his best to squeeze these legal lemons to make lemonade. >> to reflect who we are and what we hope to build, i'm proud to announce that we are now facebook. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i like that. that's a pretty fine zuck-off if you ask me. [ laughter ] down in florida, governor ron desantis has an idea. he wants to create an "election police force" that would be tasked specifically with investigating election-related crimes. basically, he wants to form an entire law enforcement agency to solve a fake problem donald trump made up. paul blart ballot cops.
[ laughter ] why would we need this? we already have a government force to fight imaginary foes. it's called the space force. [ laughter ] meanwhile, this is what our former president is up to. chunk e. cheese sent this email to supporters. [ laughter ] saying "friend, president trump asked us to personally reach out to you because he wants to make sure you get our new trump gift wrapping paper in time for christmas." "he requested that we give priority access to a small group of his best supporters, like you. we haven't released this to the general public yet -- just like his taxes. [ laughter ] "so for today only you can get our iconic trump gift wrapping paper before anyone else. please donate $35 or more immediately to claim your trump gift wrapping paper. and if you do, this is what you get. yeah. [ laughter ] there he is. ranta klaus, only $35. what an incredible privilege to spend 20 extra dollars on wrapping paper. of course he has wrapping paper. his specialty is covering things up.
[ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] he should drape himself in wrapping paper. i thought there weren't going to be any presents anyway this year -- i thought joe biden's war on christmas had canceled it, what happened to that? [ laughter ] the next big marvel superhero movie is coming out tomorrow. "eternals" is expected to gross around $80 million this weekend. and whenever a major motion picture hits theaters, we call upon our in-house movie critic, yehya, to review it. i say "in-house" because he won't leave. [ laughter ] he comes, and he stands in the doorway -- but here he is now. this is yehya talking about the new movie "eternals." >> action! quiet, please! hi, it's me, yehya. i talk about the new movie today. the new movie behind me is called "untrance," like answer the door, action?
action movie, also by hero, and that movie together -- >> eternals assemble. >> is like the marble movie, like on the floor mor bell, ire man oganda forever, the australian guy with the big hammer. also marble movie "the black window." also the guy make like fire, dr. dre. also this star, this woman right there, her name emmy chen. she in the movie "the crazy asian woman." the lady there with the hat, you know like a princess, she's salma hayek, she's so nice. she's also in the movie "frito." in the movie, engolina, she have good heart. i know her father. she in the movie, the lady that look like toro, the magic woman. also in the movie,

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yehya, thank you. that's a guarantee. all right. and one more thing before we forge ahead. it's thursday night which means it's time to bleep and blur the big tv moments of the week. whether they need it or not. it's "this week in unnecessary censorship." [ cheers and applause ] >> the youngkin family -- would like to introduce you -- to a
really tall man with a really big [ bleep ]. i love him. >> chris, you give good [ bleep ]. last time you [ bleep ]ed me, i was sore for a week. >> imagine heading outside to [ bleep ] your [ bleep ] and getting a face full of [ bleep ]. >> last thanksgiving, i [ bleep ]ed my wife. >> for more than 70 years, i have been lucky to meet and to [ bleep ] many of the world's great leaders. >> alex, i know you have a small [ bleep ] warning for us today. >> make sure you're holding on to those small [ bleep ]s. we're looking at very strong winds. >> america is not a racist [ bleep ]. >> thanks for all your important work. >> [ bleep ] you, walt. >> name something you've done to your man's behind. >> [ bleep ]. >> all right, now.

[ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: jessa, you're high? >> yes, jimmy, i am oh so high. >> jimmy: i should have guessed that, i guess. it seemed like it was all too much. [ laughter ] >> sal: it's not enough. >> well, either you haven't smoked enough when you see a bearded lady, but if you smoked enough, you might also see a bearded lady. >> jimmy: now i can see that you're high, yeah.

[ laughter and applause. >> jimmy: you plead the fifth, okay. i have one more question on that. you weren't at that meeting, your sister wasn't at that meeting, it was a meeting of adults only. how did you know that happened? >> well, you know. you grow and up you know your parents. you know what i mean? you kind of know your parents. no, my sister and my -- was a big part of the script, she's in the film too, there's a character that plays her. she was really a massive part of the script to make sure that the story was told in the right way. she was there every day for filming. it was just -- it was really the way that it ended up being was we were just so happy about the final product and everything, it was really amazing. >> jimmy: there's a scene, an important scene -- because most beginnings of your tennis career are about your sister, venus. >> yes. and that's what the film is about. because i was like, you know -- i wasn't supposed to be serena williams. i was like a kid that was trying to be like my sister. >> jimmy: yeah, you signed up for a tournament that she was
in. >> yeah. >> jimmy: your dad didn't even know. >> i'm like, dad, i want to play tennis, i want to play in this tournament. he's like, you're too young. i was small for my age at the time. so i literally fill out the form. i signed up. then i mailed it in. so i went to the tournament that venus was in, i was playing any own match. i waited till they went to go watch her match. this is in the movie. they went to watch venus play and i snuck away with my little racket, i play a match, and i won. [ cheers and applause ] clearly i was meant to play -- i was meant to play tennis, at that point. >> jimmy: i think you had an advantage in a way. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: having an older sister. because she didn't have that competition and that person to push her. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: like you did. >> absolutely. >> jimmy: i wonder about the scene where your dad, your sister becomes -- she got her first big match, playing the number one player in the world. and he turns to you.
this is will smith, by the way. who is not really your dad, right? >> i don't know anymore. [ laughter ] i think he is. i mean, he's a little too young to be my dad? but i think he is. >> jimmy: and he says to the little girl playing you, he says, your sister is the first, but you are going to be the best. something to that effect. you're going to be the best player of all time. did he really say that to you? >> that was a real moment. it's a moment that is -- you know how in life there's moments that happen? that's a moment i'll never forget. it's stuck with me. and that was -- i was like 8 years old at the time. and it was -- no, no, i was 12. however old i was, i can't remember. that happened. i just remember thinking, like, okay. well, how am i going to do this? how am i going to reach that goal? how am i going to get there? but there's absolutely no serena without venus. i love how the story is about my dad and about venus -- >> jimmy: and how close you were. >> not only us, the whole family. >> jimmy: always a rivalry between the siblings, it's just how we develop as human beings.
>> yeah. >> jimmy: and if i was in that situation where my father said, she's great but you're going to be the best, i'd go right to her and tell her that he said that. [ laughter and applause ] did you do that? i would say it at dinner. i'd wait until we were at dinner, what are we having for dessert, mom? by the way, dad, why don't you mention that thing you said? [ laughter ] >> venus was so much better than me growing up. it was kind of -- my dad really just had this vision. and i guess he knew my personality and that i had to fight for everything, down to entering myself into the tournament. i had to fight harder because i was always smaller growing up. eventually i grew tall. but i had to fight so hard. so i think he saw that in me. and he knew that venus had also opened so many doors. all i had to do is walk through it. so, like i say, without venus, there wouldn't be me. i wouldn't be who i am. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: when we come back, we're going to see a clip from the movie. it's called "king richard."

this world ain't never had no respect for richard williams. but they're going to respect y'all. they're going to respect y'all. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that is "king richard." will smith playing serena williams' dad, richard. >> yeah. >> jimmy: and the fresh prince is playing king richard. [ laughter ] that's got to be a strange thing. >> growing up watching will smith as an actor, watching "the fresh prince," everything they did, "men in black," it was really an amazing moment to realize this was going to happen. and the job that he does portraying my dad. like i said, i'm like, okay, wait, are you my dad? [ laughter ] he did such an amazing job. >> jimmy: what does your dad think of his performance? >> you know, my dad -- he hasn't seen it yet. you know, he's really -- doesn't like looking at anything about himself. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah, absolutely. >> jimmy: well, he's in -- in the movie he's doing interviews all the time. >> no, no, no. he's a total -- completely out
of camera kind of guy. >> jimmy: huh. >> he's completely -- he likes to be in the shadows now. and so he says he had his heyday, he's done. he's like, "i'm done, you guys do what you need to do." >> jimmy: really, wow, yeah. do you think he'll see it eventually? >> for sure he'll see it. you know, and honestly, maybe he's already seen it, but he hasn't told me that he's seen it. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i see. one part of the story that i didn't know about was about how much your mom contributed, not just at home, which is obvious, but on the tennis court. >> yeah. >> jimmy: your mom really -- >> that was incredible. so in the movie you'll see that, you know, venus was way better than i was. i can't stress that. i kind of sucked. [ laughter ] so i had to work really hard to get better. but -- so all the coaches realized how amazing this girl, this black girl from compton, was, venus. and they were like, we want to take her on, not so sure about the sister, but we definitely want to take her on. it's a huge project, tennis takes a ton of money and a lot of dedication.
and so i wasn't able to go, but it was so interesting that i had to start working with my mom, and yeah it was -- it was not my favorite time. my mom is going to kill me. [ laughter ] i was like, mom, i hate being on your court, i hate this! i would cry. she's like, toughen up! she made me super tough, i'm so grateful. >> jimmy: was she a good player, your mom? >> yeah, my mom was a good player, yeah. >> jimmy: those little girls who play you and your sister -- >> oh my goodness. >> jimmy: first of all, adora adorable. secondly, really good. but also, they seem to be -- i don't know, maybe it was movie magic. they seem to be really good tennis players. >> tennis is one sport in the movies that you can't really fake. you can always tell. okay, they're not a real player. these girls, once they cast, they learned how to play tennis. and they learned how to play our technique of tennis. >> jimmy: wow. >> so it was senai who played venus, demi who played me. and they were -- you can't understand that they didn't play
tennis before. it seemed like they played their whole lives. >> jimmy: they're not just hitting the ball, they're hitting the hell out of the ball. >> they are, and they're doing a good job. i was thinking they should go pro, keep training and go pro. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yeah, why not? >> the legacy continues. >> jimmy: and so on. >> my dad would somehow have two more champions so it would be really cool. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: your kids could play them in the next movie. >> exactly, exactly. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: did you ever play with them, the girls? did you get on the court with them? >> no, not yet. that's a good idea, we should do it. they're just so amazing, such cool girls. i was just watching them on set perform and do their work, do their art, and i felt honored to even be able to do that. >> jimmy: your mother, your real mother, looks just like the actress who played her. >> it's so insane. >> jimmy: there's great footage at the end of the movie of your real home movies that your dad shot. do you have all that footage still? >> well, my dad has a lot of that footage. so it's kind of cool to go back and see some of the footage, you
know, these real moments that happen in the movie, right? then the real footage that my dad actually captured growing up. so he was big into film and capturing moments and to saving, way before instagram came around. he was already into that. >> jimmy: he invented instagram too? >> he did in a way, right? >> jimmy: at the end of the movie, she mention also, we're sitting there, my wife and i are watching. and it's a new beyonce song. >> yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: which is a big deal. >> yes. >> jimmy: did you ask beyonce to write that song? >> you know, when the film came out, there was no other person that could do the song. except for beyonce. because i feel like we've had a similar path in our lives. we trained from an early age to reach a goal. >> jimmy: that's true, yeah. her dad was really -- yeah. >> her dad was super involved in her career, as well as her mom. her mom -- my dad and my mom were super involved. >> jimmy: sisters. >> sisters, yeah. for us it was really only one answer. and she embraced that. she was -- there was this -- just no doubt in her mind that
belonged to her as well. so the original song is amazing and i love it. and it's just -- it all came together really so perfectly. >> jimmy: it did. the movie's great. it's called "king richard." it is the story of the williams family. it opens in theaters on november 19th. thank you for being here.
