saying, "can we please bring the robe to thomas?" it really made me feel more than just a pack of meat on a counter. >> there's way more to this guy than bulging muscles and piercing blue eyes. thomas happens to be a two-time kickboxing world champion. and 10 years ago, he left france to pursue a new life in new york as a personal trainer, not speaking a word of english. one of his clients offered him a modeling job, which eventually led to acting roles like "the expendables 3" with sly stallone. >> i was like, "sly? who's sly?" and he was like, "do you know sylvester stallone?" and i'm like, "oh, my god, are you kidding? of course." i watched "rocky" my whole life. so, i just didn't know the nickname, which now i know.

"the addams family 2." there's got to be something that you love about this lady to come back for another one. >> it's more just the fact that my kids absolutely love these films, and it's something that we get to share as a family. >> in fact, charlize's kids actually offered her acting advice while she recorded morticia's voice-overs from home during lockdown. >> they definitely took a director's-chair approach to my performance and would let me know how they felt about how i was reading certain lines. >> we have some of the best dark secrets. >> nobody quite rocks the little black dress quite like morticia does... >> true. >> ...except for maybe charlize theron. can you tell me about this? i think it was maybe '98? >> when they didn't make undergarments for dresses, obviously. >> and then the oscars. >> that is very morticia, actually. i forgot about that. 'cause my kids are so fascinated. they always ask me, "does morticia have feet?" i don't know if she just walks like that or if she actually just floats. >> at cannes. i mean, come on.
>> yeah, the little cat suit underneath. yes, that was a fun little dress for sure. >> let's be real. she looks great in everything, doesn't she? >> she does. i can't stop staring at her. >> right? >> it's really good. >> it's really good. >> it's really good. >> all the time. >> we're gonna move on right now to "diana: the musical." it is out now on netflix, ahead of its broadway premiere in november. and star jeanna de waal tells zuri she took her research very seriously. >> jeanna, talk to me a little bit about this process of becoming princess diana. >> we're so lucky to have so much footage of these people. so, really sort of trying to watch and emulating how they move, how they sound. >> ♪ living rather large ♪ ♪ yet feeling rather small ♪ >> jeanna de waal takes on the role of diana, and in addition to studying her on camera, she practiced an exercise system called gyrotonics to get that perfect princess posture. >> like, old-school thing, like go to boarding school and balance a book on your head,

for, like, less than 30 seconds. >> oh, my gosh. >> there's not a costume in the show that wasn't modeled almost exactly after something she wore. so you will definitely recognize a lot of the looks. >> whew! 38 costumes? we're gonna need a lot of velcro for those quick changes. okay, if you're addicted to tiktok, i'm sure you've come across elliot forbes. the london-based barber has six million followers on the site, and here's why he's blowing up. ♪♪ >> i started cutting hair five and half years ago. i loved going into barber shops, i loved having a great haircut, and i loved feeling amazing. and i wanted to try and do that to other people and help them feel amazing, as well. >> and not only is elliot helping his clients feel amazing. he's also helping his six million tiktok followers. elliot told us what made him decide to start making videos on tiktok. >> it was all down to trying to market myself. it was trying to have new people come into the shop, entice new people to come in. it was a marketing tool, really.
>> and the tiktoks have clearly worked for him. >> it's meant that i've had a larger client base, and there's now more people wanting to come and have their hair cut by myself. it's then afforded me the opportunity to be able to create more content. >> some of elliot's most popular tiktoks are the ones where he analyzes male celebrities' best haircuts. but who's his dream celebrity to work with? >> the one person actually whose hair i would love to cut would be harry styles. >> and we had elliot share his best barber tips with us. >> tip number one -- if you want to get volume at the front of your hair, you need to use a round brush and you need to use a hair dryer. hook that into the hair at the front, rotate it up, and then the hair dryer. and the hair dryer then is gonna follow that, and that's gonna help lift and get the volume coming out. once you've finished drying the hair, use the cold setting on that for 10 seconds. that seals the cuticle and helps make the hair stay in place all day long. a problem a lot of guys tend to have is they're putting product all in the front, where they can see. when applying product, start at the crown and then work forwards so you get much more of an even distribution. >> but we couldn't let elliot go without reviewing our very own mario lopez's best cuts throughout the years. >> in at number one, lovely
shape we've got built up. it pushes back very nicely, lovely texturing through that top, very elegant. in at number two, slightly off-centered part and just falls down to the side, a lovely shape built up, and, again, lovely texture, very classy. and in at number three, the super-iconic look from back in the day -- lovely texture. i love that perm that's out with that back area, lots of volume in through the top, and a real epic "saved by the bell" look. >> huh. >> i will be sure to pass that along to mario. all glowing reviews. >> [ laughing ] not bad. all right, well, next up, we're celebrating 25 years of tim and faith's wedded bliss with the ultimate look-back.
