ALL.>>THAT’S RIGHT. ( LAUGHTER )

JUST THINK ABOUT THE FACT EVERYTHING IS GONE NOW. SIT THERE AND WAIT FOR THE
RELEASE OF DEATH.>>Stephen: YOU MAY ZAZOO WHO
IS THE SECRETARY TO M MUFASA, RIGHT?>>YOU SAID MUSTASA. I THOUGHT I’LL LET THAT SLIDE

WAS THERE. WE WERE SETTING UP THE SHOT AND
WE WERE SITTING IN THE FRONT AND SHE SAID YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL
WHERE YOUR FOOT IS. I LOOKED DOWN AND THERE WAS A
PIECE OF TAPE WITH BEYONCE’S NAME ON IT. A LITERAL ELECTRIC REACTION, OH
( BLEEP )! JUST THE FUTURE PRESENCE OF
BEYONCE WAS SO INTIMIDATING. IF YOU LOOK AT MY FACE IN THERE,
I LOOK REALLY INTIMIDATED, AND THAT’S BECAUSE WHAT I’M DOING IS
IMAGINING THAT I AM ABOUT TO BE PUT INTO A PHOTO WITH BEYONCE
ONE DAY, AND THAT WAS NERVE RACKING ENOUGH.>>Stephen: I CAN TELL RIGHT
HERE BECAUSE LOOK AT THE GAP, LOOK HOW MUCH ROOM.>>YEAH.>>Stephen: THAT’S THE BIGGEST
GAP OF ANYBODY IN THIS PHOTOGRAPH.>>ONLY APPROPRIATE. THERE’S ONLY APPROPRIATE THERE
WAS A SIGNIFICANT GAP BETWEEN ME AND THE ACTUAL QUEEN. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: WOW! WOW! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>I DIDN’T THINK IT WAS THAT CONTROVERSIAL. IF YOUHEAD A CHOICE BETWEEN
BEYONCE AND QUEEN ELIZABETH I II —
>>Stephen: HAVE YOU MET QUEEN ELIZABETH II?>>OF COURSE NOT, I’M A PEASANT!>>Stephen: THEY TROOP YOU
GUYS IN EVERY SO OFTEN AND THEY SAY, WE WANT TO SEE THIS ONE.>>NO, THE WHOLE BRITISH CAST IS
SET UP SO THEY WILL NEVER BE IN THE SAME PLACE.>>Stephen: BACK WITH MORE
