Melissa McCarthy’s Karate Kid


[LAUGH]
>>You’re such an inspiration for women in general, but for
young girls especially. I don’t know if it is rubbing off on
your children cuz it sounds like. [LAUGH]
>>Yeah, I don’t know, I’m still slightly. They’re controlling me. I’m always trying to am
I setting an example or? Or am I just trying to stay ahead of them? I’m afraid of that little one.>>Yeah.>>The youngest one’s got me on the ropes. The oldest one’s very reflective and.>>And who is in the movie as well.>>They’re both in the movie.>>Yes but.>>They’re both in the movie. Vivi plays me at like seven or eight. Because when we kept saying no to it and
she had such a good, she finally after like two months
of no we don’t, you don’t do that. You’re welcome to try at 25. And then she said,
am I not allowed to at least try? Which I thought, yeah, exactly. It worked like a charm.>>[LAUGH]
>>Exactly, that’s what I did. And I thought, she’s made a good point. And I’ve always said you
are allowed to try for anything, doesn’t mean you’ll get it,
doesn’t mean you’ll get a yes. But I would never stop her
from trying something. And we made her kind of keep working on
it and keep trying it for three weeks and she kept doing it really, really well and
you could tell she was trying. So we said okay, we’ll do this one time. And then of course the little one was
like, if she’s doing it, I’m doing it.>>[APPLAUSE] [LAUGH]
>>I mean literally from the other room, she didn’t even bother to come in. We just got a scream from the other room,
we’re like yeah, okay.>>[LAUGH]
>>Okay, just don’t rile her up.>>Yeah.
>>Don’t rile her up.>>Because you don’t want to rile her up.>>No.
>>No.>>She said something. My god.
She said something last week.>>I want to hear the recent thing.>>And I don’t, like we were talking
about like do you want a muffin or do you want cereal for breakfast. We were not on any kind of
topic that she brought up. And I’m trying to get an answer out of her
as I’m like getting breakfast together and she goes I don’t wanna
take karate classes.>>[LAUGH]
>>Which we’re already like, what? And she goes I just want
a guy I can kick and punch.>>[LAUGH]
>>And Ben and I both were like.>>[LAUGH]
>>And we just look at each other and I’m like we do have to actually
figure out what that’s about.>>[LAUGH]
>>Because there was a moment where like do we just, do we just,
is that one of them that we just let slide because I don’t want to
know the root of that. And then we said, what did you say? And she goes,
I don’t want to take her out of class, I just want a guy I can kick and punch. [LAUGH] And I was like,
okay we gotta go to the dining room table. Now we have to sit and
like what is what are you talking about? We were not talking about karate, or
kicking and punching another human being.>>[LAUGH]
>>And she looked a little squirrely, like she may have been like,
I may have tipped it. I may have gone over.>>[LAUGH]
>>There was a little, I felt like she was realizing Ben and
I were both like. And finally we got it out of her
that she wanted one of those sparring dummy’s that you like hit and
punch with. But I’m not sure if she really meant that. I think she may have been like
I’ve got to cover this up, so I’ll say I want a mannequin. But I meant what I said. She was like a vigilante in
her first life, for sure.>>[LAUGH]
>>For sure.>>Because she’ll just say like,
if someone comes in.>>It’s always some kind of survival
tactic like, if we were under siege. I’m like, what?>>[LAUGH]
>>No, why, what’s stop,
like where is this coming from?>>She’s like five, or something?>>She’s six, and it’s always like. You know,
if my [INAUDIBLE] gets in trouble. What?
>>[LAUGH]>>Are you talking about? It’s always like, it’s very militant.>>She’s hilarious.>>And
you’d never know it was coming from her. She’s like a little tiny blonde that just. Looks like it’s great.>>I know they’re little angels. I saw them when you got your star,
they’re adorable.
