[inspirational music]
11:48 pm
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- halle berry. elle fanning. and music from little simz. and now, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: thanks. great. ip appreciate that. hi, everyone. how are you doing? i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thanks for braving the heat to be here tonight. it was -- it was almost -- here in l.a. it was almost 100 degrees this weekend. crazy, right guillermo? >> guillermo: very crazy. >> jimmy: and while a lot of people might chalk it up to global warming, i can't help but feel that all the hot excitement had something to do with britney spears finally being freed from her father's clutches. [ cheers and applause ]
11:49 pm
is it just me, or does it feel like britney's been freed three times already this year? [ laughter ] how free does one person need to be? donald trump is also free for the time being. where is that case in new york already? wasn't he supposed to be like in jail like eight months ago? [ cheers and applause ] get to work on that. it would seem that there is nothing this man can ever say or do that will convince those who adore him that he is unworthy of that adoration. so there's a new book about trump. jonathan karl of abc news wrote the 900th book about donald trump. it's called "betrayal." and once again, for the 900th time in a row, trump granted a one-on-one interview for the book. even though he has repeatedly called jon karl a third raitt reporter. but if there's one thing he can't resist, it's talking about himself. so he does all these interviews. karl asked him about the attack on the capitol and what his thoughts were as an angry mob hunted for and threatened to kill his vice president. >> were you worried about him
11:50 pm
during that siege? were you worried -- >> no. i thought he was well protected and i had heard that he was in good shape. >> you heard those chants. that was terrible. >> he could have -- well, the people were very angry. >> they said hang mike pence. >> it's common sense. how can you -- if you know a vote is fraudulent. right? how can you pass on a fraudulent vote to congress? >> jimmy: it's a betrayal of everything i've been lying about for two months. [ laughter ] you can't -- but enough about mike pence being hung. what about me being hung? you want to take a look? it's huge, don. then karl follows up with clarification on a story a conversation trump had with mike pence before the riot. >> there was a report, and excuse my language. not mine. it was in the report. that you talked to him that morning and you said you could be a patriot or you can be a [ bleep ]. did you really say that or is that a incorrect -- >> i wouldn't dispute it. >> really? >> i wouldn't dispute it. >> jimmy: what if he tried to
11:51 pm
grab mike pence by the patriot? [ laughter ] mike pence now claims he has no problems at all with his former boss. so i guess trump was right. there's another mcnugget from the book. it says trump was almost banned from biden's inauguration. mitch mcconnell was working on a letter from the four congressional leaders. they were all going to sign it. disinviting donald from the ceremony because they didn't want him to pull a kanye or something during biden's speech. karl says trump got wind of the plan and tweeted that he wasn't going before they could tell him he couldn't. but today the commander in cheeto released a statement challenging that story. he wrote "from election day november 3rd the day i realized the presidential election was rigged i would never have agreed to go to joe biden's inauguration. the decision was mine and mine alone. the old broken down crow mitch mcconnell had nothing to do with it." still got it. [ laughter ] also lambasted his former director of strategic communications who says trump knew he lost. she says he specifically admitted that to her.
11:52 pm
she also said she thinks mike pence will run for president against donald trump in 2024, which that would be really good. i would like that. for trump it would be like waking up and finding your dog sitting at the breakfast table reading the paper. [ laughter ] sesame street is in the news again. they describe as their first ha- asian-american muppet. her name is ji young. [ applause ] this is historic because it's the first time ernie has been touched by a woman. [ laughter ] and while it's good to see "sesame street" adding diversity, the fact that she's asian american makes you wonder, what the hell race are the other muppets? [ laughter ] i mean, ernie's orange. bert is like banana colored. bert has to be white, right? only a white person would wear that turtleneck and sweater. we are in the middle of what has been dubbed the great
11:53 pm
resignation. a record 4.4 million americans quit their jobs in september. and all of them are here with us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] but nobody really knows. i mean, there are a lot of reasons why. it's still not entirely clear why it is so difficult to find workers right now. especially in the food service industry. it seems like every restaurant is having trouble finding staff. i drove by a five guys today. it was only a four guy. [ laughter ] aaron rornldgers was back at wo yesterday. quarterback for the green bay packers. led his team to victory in his first game back since he had covid. 23 of 237 for 293 yards. he had great protection all night, ironically. [ laughter ] after the game a reporter asked are you concerned you might test positive again and miss a big game like the super bowl? rodgers said, "i don't like playing the what if game." but he is okay with the what if i infect a teammate and end up killing him game, not the what if game.
11:54 pm
he did a post-game interview via zoom to avoid violating the league's mask policy for unvaccinated players indoors. >> you know, it's tough to be away from the squad. but the guys checked on me every single day. i heard from multiple guys and all the coaches. that was, again, really meaningful to me to hear from all those people and to have that support. i really appreciated that part of a difficult -- >> jimmy: and let that be a lesson to the kids out there. if you lie about something that could potentially kill somebody you work with, you can potentially get grounded for a whole week. [ laughter ] of course aaron rodgers isn't the only one who's reluctant to take the shot. a lot of americans, millions in fact, are either hesitant or just flat out against the idea. and with kids now in the mix it's particularly important that they get vaccinated too. so we have come up with something special. this is a book for kids with crazy parents. it's called "dot got a shot." and it is -- well, i'll read it to you if you like. if you have -- you have time?
11:55 pm
[ cheers and applause ] we spent a lot of time on this. it would be funny if everyone was like eh. we get the gist. you ready, guillermo? >> guillermo: ready. >> jimmy: follow along, please. lrpt? >> guillermo: okay. >> jimmy: it was a warm summer day but dot was dejected. her mother refused to get her injected. all dot wanted was to ride bikes with dorene but her irrational parents feared the vaccine. luke and sonia said let's go to the pool. but dot couldn't join them because her dad is a fool. [ laughter ] she couldn't eat cereal. it got that pathetic. they threw spoons at the mailman to prove he's magnetic. [ laughter ] so dot sat at the window and became very bitter while her dizzy brained mother read nonsense on twitter. don't tread on me is mom's new favorite slogan and dad got dewormed on advice from joe rogan. [ laughter ] dot needed some help to convince mom and dad that vaccines save
11:56 pm
lives and they're not something bad. and experts she thought might turn them around like that doc on tv who dad says is a clown. so she wrote a long e-mail to the wise dr. fauci. do you think you could come here and sit on our couchy? to explain this vaccine and hopefully soon because my parents have doubts and we're all out of spoons. [ laughter ] so fauci wrote back and said dot, my dear, if i came to your house your parents would sneer. what we've learned over here at is the best messenger is someone they love. that's you, little dot. they'll listen to you. only you can convince them to have a breakthrough. so dot started digging and compiling the facts from medical journals, the truth about vax. th next night at dinner she said think you'll be proud, i did my own research and here's what i found. vaccines came out in 1796, before a con man named don made us all sick. these don't contain microchips or make you magneto. they're not a dark plot by
11:57 pm
hollywood pedos. [ laughter ] they're just like the ten other vaccines i got. they keep us alive with a few little shots. so let's get the shot. can we please go? like your parents did to stop polio? and like theirs did before them to protect them from rabies? and their parents before that to keep smallpox from babies? and dot's loving reminde, it finally got through. they turned off fox news and stopped eating horse goo. [ laughter ] now dot's having fun with dorene and her crew because dot got the shot and her parents did too. [ cheers and applause ] her family's protected from covid. that's that. next up, convince them the earth is not flat. [ laughter ] there you go. that's -- [ cheers and applause ] dot got a shot. one year ago nobody was vaccinated. there were no vaccines ready yet. now we're booking our booster
11:58 pm
shots. things have changed a lot. and so once again we opened the corona time capsule to look back at what was in the news one year ago, and we've done it again in tonight's edition of "this week in covid history." >> this week in covid history. it's mid november 2020. and america's most beloved politician has a message. >> my advice on thanksgiving? don't be a turkey. >> gobble gobble. and keep your giblets to yourself. hit the bench, bleach. there's a new covid cure. >> there is some good news. it looks like that we have not one but two vaccines. >> we expect to have 40 million doses of pfizer and moderna vaccine. >> all thanks to the greatest scientific minds the world has ever -- >> you wouldn't have a vaccine if it weren't for me for another four years because fda would have never been able to do what they did. what i forced them to do. >> he forced it. like the lock on miss teen usa's dressing room. >> the last time the president
11:59 pm
was physically at a task force meeting was several months ago. >> oh, pipe down tony ba loney. >> thanks to donald trump. without him we would never have these vaccines. >> why not name the vaccine the trump? you know, make it like have you gotten your trump yet? >> this is the trump vaccine. they ought to call it the trump vaccine. >> when it comes to great vaccines, i just raised the stakes. trump vaccines are the world greatest vaccines, and i mean that in every sense of the word. one bite and you'll know exactly what i'm talking about. >> warning. do not bite vaccine. >> just ask his lunatic lawyer. >> whether you agree or disagree with an affidavit, it's evidence. >> what's that running down his creepy face? by gum, we've struck oil. we've rich. this has been "this week in covid history." [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we have a great show for you tonight. elle fanning is here.
12:00 am
we have music from little simz. and we will be right back with halle berry. so stick around. >> dicky: abc's "jimmy kimmel live," brought to you by audi.

12:04 am
come aboard a medallionclass cruise with princess plus. visit or call 1-800-princess. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome back to the show. tonight, her series on hulu is called "the great." the always delightful elle fanning is with us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] then later, she is a nigerian rapper, singer, and actress from the u.k. her album is called "sometimes i might be introvert." music from little simz on the mercedes-benz stage. [ cheers and applause ] tomorrow night and all this week we have new shows with michael keaton, you know he was batman. >> guillermo: yes. >> jimmy: kirsten dunst.
12:05 am
nick offerman. wilmer valderama, from hbo, john wilson will be with us. plus music from alessia cara, gracie abrams, and the war on drugs. so please join us for all of that. [ cheers and applause ] our first guest tonight is an oscar and emmy winner, beloved by all. she is the woman who convinced to keep this beard. for real. true. and she is a director now. you can see her yelling action at herself and engaging in the martial arts in the new movie "bruised." >> send you back to school. come on. pick it up. pick it up. don't look like ufc. five seconds. four. three. two. [ whistle blows ] >> jimmy: "bruised" is in select theaters starting wednesday and
12:06 am
on netflix starting november 24th. please welcome halle berry. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ how are you doing? it's very good to see you. thanks for coming. >> good to see you too. >> jimmy: it's funny to see you here looking beautiful and dressed up after watching that movie in which -- i mean, i know it's a movie and i get it. i understand how they work. it's acting and all that stuff. but you are fighting viciously and beating and being bitten in a serious way it seems like. >> yeah. it was like so incredible. >> jimmy: you liked that? >> i loved that. i loved it. >> jimmy: and you directed it too, which is -- if i was making my like -- if it was my first movie as a director, i would be like a house-sitter or something. i would be something like -- i'd
12:07 am
be on a raft in the pool for the whole film. but you picked the least easy thing you could do probably. >> i know. it was bananas. i don't know why. sometimes these things just find you. i'll never do it again. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it was -- i know you did a lot of training. how much training did you like really do? no kidding around. >> no kidding around, i trained for probably 2 1/2 years. and i would go anywhere -- always four days a week, some days six days a week for four to six hours. >> jimmy: and you're in there fighting and -- >> fighting, learning all these martial art disciplines. i had to learn jiu-jitsu, taekwondo, muay thai, wrestling, judo, boxing, kickboxing, all of these, you know, elements come into play in mma. >> jimmy: which one ydid you like? which one did you gravitate toward? >> jiu-jitsu. that's the ground game. it's like wrestling when you're on the ground and you're doing all these moves. that's naturally where i -- where my talents lie.
12:08 am
>> jimmy: they lie where you lie. >> did you say show you -- you want me to -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: yeah, let's do that. [ laughter ] >> i would love to. >> jimmy: so that's -- so the ground game. there's a lot of -- boy, i just can't even imagine you -- were you fighting with -- >> valentina shevchenko. >> jimmy: oh, okay. >> she's like the flyweight, the current ufc flyweight champion. >> jimmy: you have a conversation with her beforehand where you say take it easy on me or don't take it easy on me or don't -- because if i was her i would be terrified to hit you. >> she was. and so at first she wasn't connecting with her kicks. and finally i said val, you've got to do it, i have to feel it. i've never done this. that's why you're here. like give it to me. and so she gave it to me. and -- [ laughter ] she broke two ribs. >> jimmy: she did? >> i was like -- >> jimmy: was she like oh my god, i'm so sorry? >> she was mortified. >> jimmy: i would think so.
12:09 am
i once -- mike tyson, i was shooting something with mike tyson at this boxing gym across the street and i said just hit me a couple times like for real. and he's just like uh, no, no, no. i'm not going to do that. i was like please. i was starting to annoy him. i figured maybe if i annoyed him he would do it. i just want to know what it feels like. i want to know what it feels like. and he said something to the effect of once i get started i don't stop. i was like okay, yeah, then let's not do that. [ laughter ] >> no. no. you need your teeth. >> jimmy: yeah, i need my teeth. that's a great point. i do need my teeth. i've taken so much care of them over the years. so you're in the gym four to six days a week. you're fighting with people. do you feel now you could like beat up a stranger? >> yeah. >> jimmy: yeah. and how would you approach it? if you were in a situation, like if somebody really had it coming. and you had to do something. what would be your first move? >> i would maneuver myself to get into a rear naked.
12:10 am
that's the easiest thing for a woman my size. >> jimmy: into a rear naked. >> a rear naked choke. >> jimmy: okay. [ laughter ] and then the people say thank you and they leave or -- [ laughter ] >> they pass out and it's lights out. but for a woman, like if you can get yourself in that position -- and most men wouldn't think you even know how to do that. so there's that element of surprise. but if i could get there -- >> jimmy: have you choked anyone out? have you felt them go unconscious? >> almost. they've tapped out. and i didn't realize -- one time i was in rehearsal and i'm doing a move on one of my partners and he was losing oxygen but i'm so into learning so i was like -- and this is good, right? and the poor guy was like -- and then i realized. and that's when i learned that that means stop. but i didn't know that yet. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: there was no discussion of that beforehand? >> not really. >> jimmy: that's when you learn -- >> learned that day. >> jimmy: do you go to these fights? do you go to mma fights?
12:11 am
>> oh, i love it. every saturday i'm watching. i go when i can. >> jimmy: did you love it before you started training or -- >> yeah. >> jimmy: you did. >> that's when i got this script, i was like oh my god, this came from heaven for me because it's where i was at. i've loved boxing since i was a kid. hearns and ali and hagler and leonard. like they were like my heroes as a little girl. so this was like tailor made for me in so many ways. >> jimmy: so do you think somebody knew, they noticed you at one of these fights and said oh, let's go to halle with this story? >> no. >> jimmy: no? oh. >> no. >> jimmy: just totally out of the blue? >> my agent just gave this to me. when i got this story, another actress was attached to it. this was for blake lively. >> jimmy: oh, really? >> yeah. because originally when i got the script it was written for like a very young irish catholic white girl. and i said to my agent, but i love this, i have to play this part. i mean not like this but i have to reimagine it. but i'm going to do this. and she said, well, it's blake's right now. so blake decides to give it away, pass it up, you'll be the first person you come to.
12:12 am
so i had to patiently wait for six months until blake decided it's not something she wanted to do. and then -- >> jimmy: and did you call blake at any time and go you -- you know what? you made the right choice. [ laughter ] i'm being beaten, i'm choking people out, i'm throwing up regularly. this is ridiculous. cardi b did a song on the soundtrack. >> yes. cardi b. >> jimmy: did you see what happened after you said -- you called cardi b the queen of hip-hop on twitter? the nicki minaj fans got really, really mad at you. >> i know. >> jimmy: will you beat them up too? [ laughter ] >> no. i'm not going to beat them up. no. >> jimmy: do you stand by that assessment of cardi b as the queen of hip-hop? >> you know, i do. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you do. >> i think -- but here's the thing. there's room for more than one queen, people. [ cheers and applause ] what we need to know, nicki is a queen in her own right. h.e.r. is a queen. all these ladies to me are
12:13 am
queens. there can always be more than one. >> jimmy: yeah. to me there's only one queen of hip-hop and it's latifah of course. the first queen is the queen of hip-hop. you can't -- you don't get demoted from queen. >> no, you don't. and queen is a term we use to describe great. we're all a queen. all we do all day is say hey, queen, whats up queen? what's whahappening, queen? we're all queens. >> jimmy: okay. i don't think of myself as a queen but maybe one day -- >> you're not. >> jimmy: halle berry is with us. her new movie is called "bruised." it's in select theaters starting wednesday and on netflix starting november 24th. we'll be right back. more halle after this.

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we are back with mixed martial artist halle berry. her movie is called "bruised." you were at one of these weigh-ins, this ufc weigh-in. what goes on here? are they distracted by the fact that you're right there? >> they didn't even know i was there. [ laughter ] that's ho intense these ladies are. they are -- fight's the next day. they're doing their like mean mugging. they're trying to intimidate each other. you know, it's a whole psychological game that's as important as the physical side. so later rose, the next day she was like i didn't even know that was you. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah. >> jimmy: well, that's a heck of a surprise, i guess, huh? i have noticed there's a difference with the female fighters. there seems to be more affection
12:19 am
at the end of a fight between them than there is between the male fighters. like the male fighter will come and give a little hug but like a lot of times there's real -- i mean, there seem to be real emotion between the fighters when it's over and done. >> i think for women, because we are more emotional, you know, by nature and i think being a part of a blood sport like this is not something that's normal for women. and we don't, you know, lose our female card because we become fighters. so there is a lot of emotion between women and i think there's camaraderie that's a little different than men. >> jimmy: yeah. it definitely seems that way. >> yeah. >> jimmy: so directing this movie. is this something you've been planning for a long time? >> no. >> jimmy: no. have you been watching directors and picking up -- i'm sure you just do it as a result of being on set, but you haven't specifically been studying the various directors you've worked with to -- thinking eventually i'm going to do this? >> sometimes -- you know, being
12:20 am
in the business now for 30 years, there's no way i can escape watching directors and understanding storytelling and how movies are put together and all the facets that bring it together. so i think my whole career you arrive at a place where you decide you know what, i think i can do that. i understand what this is. but what helped me the most was when i got my first movie, "jungle fever," spike lee sort of allowed me to -- [ cheers and applause ] thank you. he sort of allowed me to shadow. like i got to learn what all the departments did. i got to understand filmmaking because he said this is your first movie and he gave me an opportunity to like get in there and really -- >> jimmy: on your first movie he did that. >> on my first movie. yeah. >> jimmy: wow. you were a crackhead in that movie, too, right? >> crack ho. >> jimmy: crack ho.
