HOW ARE YOU DOING? I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU SINCE THE OSCARS. AND YOU LOOK -- YOU LOOK BETTER WITHOUT ALL THAT HORRIBLE HAIR. >> YOU THINK SO? YOU MENTIONED IT EARLIER. >> Jimmy: YEAH. >> IT TAKES ME A YEAR TO GROW A SINGLE WHISKER. SO ONCE I HAD IT I WAS HOLDING ON TO IT. I KEPT IT BECAUSE I WAS SHOOTING SOMETHING. YOU KEPT YOURS. >> Jimmy: I CAN GROW MINE OVERNIGHT. I ACTUALLY SHAVED THIS MORNING AND IT'S BACK. HOW ARE YOU DOING? >> EVERYTHING'S GREAT. >> Jimmy: HAS IT CHANGED YOUR LIFE BEING THE OSCAR WINNER FOR BEST ACTOR? >> Re >> NO, NOT REALLY. NOTHING CHANGES. IT WAS A TERRIFYING EXPERIENCE. >> Jimmy: IT SEEMED LIKE YOU HAD NOTHING PLANNED WHEN YOU GOT UP THERE. >> YEAH. NO. >> Jimmy: IS IT TRUE? >> THAT'S TRUE. I MEAN, YOU KNOW, TO BE HONEST, I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT I SAID. I CAN'T -- AND I'M GLAD BECAUSE I HAVE A FEELING THAT IF I DID REMEMBER OR I WATCHED IT AGAIN I'D BE VERY EMBARRASSED. >> Jimmy: OH, YOU'VE NOT WATCHED IT. >> I HAVEN'T WATCHED IT. >> Jimmy: I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT. I DO REMEMBER BASICALLY WHAT HAPPENED. SO I'LL FILL YOU IN. [ LAUGHTER ] YOU DID THANK YOUR BROTHER BEN, WHICH WAS GOOD BECAUSE YOU TOTALLY FORGOT HIM AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES. >> HE COMPLAINED THE MOST. SEW GOT THANKED. >> Jimmy: YOU GAVE HIM A VERY -- YOU WERE VERY NICE TO HIM. YOU DID NEGLECT TO THANK YOUR KIDS YOUR SONS. >> THANK YOU. >> Jimmy: SO THAT WAS BAD. [ LAUGHTER ] OR WAS THAT BAD? >> THAT WAS TERRIBLE. I IMMEDIATELY REALIZED I HADN'T DONE THAT. THAT WAS A SHAME. I FEEL A LITTLE LIKE PETER. I WANTED TO MAKE MY SPEECH AGAIN. >> Jimmy: THE KID -- >> YEAH, THE HIGH SCHOOL KID. THAT WAS A BRILLIANT SPEECH, BY THE WAY. >> Jimmy: GO AHEAD, MAKE YOUR SPEECH IF YOU WANT TO. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] COME ON, PETER. >> THE THING IS -- I'M GOING TO KILL YOU. [ LAUGHTER ] THE THING I WANTED TO SAY REALLY WAS THAT I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE THE SPEECH BUT WHAT I WISH I HAD SAID WAS TO MY KIDS BECAUSE THEY ARE KIND OF -- YOU KNOW, IT'S THE REASON YOU DO ANYTHING. AND THEY'RE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN YOUR LIFE. I ALSO -- AFTERWARD I THOUGHT ABOUT HOW IT WAS -- HOW THEY PERCEIVED, IT DAD UP THERE ON TV AT THIS FANCY SHOW AND WHAT IS HE DOING THERE. >> Jimmy: YEAH. >> WHICH IS A GOOD QUESTION KIND OF. I JUST WANT -- I PROBABLY DID WANT TO TELL THEM THAT LIKE THERE WERE MANY YEARS IN THERE, THOUSANDS OF AUDITIONS I DIDN'T GET, MANY PARTS I DID GET AND THEY SUCKED. SO IT HASN'T ALWAYS BEEN TROPHIES, YOU KNOW. AND THERE WILL BE MANY MORE DECADES OF STRUGGLING AND DOING BAD MOVIES AND NOT GETTING PARTS AGAIN. >> Jimmy: IS THAT THE PLAN? [ LAUGHTER ] >> YES. THAT'S THE PLAN. >> Jimmy: AND THE KIDS -- >> I WANTED TO LECTURE MY KIDS. THAT'S WHAT I REALLY WISH I HAD DONE WITH MY TIME-S GET UP AND LECTURE MY KIDS. >> Jimmy: IT'S PROBABLY BETTER. THEY PROBABLY GOT OFF EASY. DID YOU CALL THEM AFTERWARDS? >> I CALLED THEM IMMEDIATELY. I WENT INTO THE WINGS I CALLED THEM UP AND I SAID I WON THIS THING, THE OSCARS, BUT I DIDN'T MENTION YOU EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN MY LIFE AND I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING AND I WOULD TRADE A THOUSAND OSCARS FOR YOU GUYS. AND I STILL FELT BAD. SO I WENT HOME RIGHT AFTER AND I GAVE THEM THE OSCAR. WHICH I THOUGHT WAS LIKE -- THEY WOULD LIKE. >> Jimmy: YEAH. >> AND A FEW WEEKS LATER, THIS IS TRUE. I WENT INTO ONE OF THEIR ROOMS AND I SAW IT ACTUALLY IN THE CORNER WITH LIKE A WET TOWEL OVER IT AND LIKE CLOTHES AND STUFF. AND I WAS LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT, I'M GOING TO HANG ON TO IT, GUYS. [ LAUGHTER ] STILL YOURS. I'M GOING TO HANG ON TO IT. [ APPLAUSE ] >> Jimmy: WERE THE BOYS WATCHING AT THE TIME? >> THEY WERE WATCHING I'M SURE. >> Jimmy: YES. >> WAITING FOR THEIR -- >> Jimmy: WAITING FOR DAD TO THANK THEM. >> LIKE THANKS, BOYS. >> Jimmy: THAT'S GOOD INCENTIVE FOR YOUR NEXT OSCAR CAMPAIGN. YOU'VE GOT TO THANK THE KIDS THIS TIME. >> YOU KNOW, YOU DID A GREAT JOB. I'M SURE YOU HEARD THIS BEFORE. NOT JUST HOSTING IT BUT I MEAN -- [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >> Jimmy: THANKS, GUYS. >> NOT THAT GREAT. >> Jimmy: THAT'S WHAT YOUR KIDS TOLD ME. THEY CALLED ME AND SAID YOU WERE THE BEST ONE ON THE SHOW. [ LAUGHTER ] >> THAT'S FUNNY BECAUSE THEY DON'T WATCH THE PROGRAM. [ LAUGHTER ] THEY SAID -- >> Jimmy: AND YET THEY STILL CALLED. >> I'D LIKE TO FINISH MY STORY. THEY TOLD ME THAT -- NO, THEY DIDN'T TELL ME. YOU WERE SITTING RIGHT BEHIND ME AT THE END OF THE SHOW WHEN IT KIND OF WENT SIDEWAYS A LITTLE BIT. YOU WERE THE VERY FIRST PERSON -- BECAUSE YOU WERE SITTING BEHIND ME. I HEARD YOU SAY THIS ISN'T GOOD. AND I THOUGHT WHY IS JIMMY -- WHAT'S HE TALKING ABOUT? BEFORE I REALIZED, BEFORE ANYONE REALIZED THAT SOMETHING WEIRD IT HAPPENED. AND YOU JUMPED RIGHT UP.
