So you're in London shooting Cats right now.

Right?

I know.

I mean, not right now.

You're here.

So that's exciting.

How's that going?

It's pretty interesting to be a cat all day.

Doing a lot of like (PURRING).

(HISSING).

You know, like cat stuff.

Right.

Did you know that that would happen?

The movie is called Cats.

Yeah.

But it's based on the stage musical Cats.

So I just thought about the singing and dancing part,

not about actually being a cat every day.

Right.

And I mean, it's cool.

They have a little box on the side and stuff.

No.

We do have to go to cat school though,

which is where we all just pretend to be cats together.

Who is in that school?

Well, we have a lady called Sarah that teaches us.

I know.

But who are the students?

Who's in it with you?

Dame Judi Dench.

Truly, though.

Ian McKellen.

Idris Elba.

James Corden.

Taylor Swift.

The cast is spectacular.

Yeah.

So you're all taking cat classes?

Yes.

Yeah.

Do you like cats?

I'm allergic to cats and to dogs.

Oh.

Yeah.

That's horrible.

I could not live if I was allergic to animals.

They're everything to me.

Yeah.

I feel so sorry for you.

Yeah.

My life is tough.

Yeah.

[LAUGHTER]

Please, send money.

[LAUGHTER]

Yeah.

But Cats is going great.

That's great.

That's very exciting.

Yeah.

You guys will see it for Christmas this year.

Yeah.

I can't wait.

Wonderful.

All right.

So last year was the year of fun.

Is that right?

Yeah.

2018 for me was the year of fun.

I just did so much fun stuff, like jet skiing,

helicoptering, going on a glacial in a snowmobile.

I went skiing at the end of the year in Aspen.

Do you call it skiing?

I saw the pictures.

[LAUGHTER]

Well, OK.

All right.

Cause you're on your way up there.

Yeah.

And I was in the middle of Cats.

So look how picturesque it looks.

Yeah.

So that was at the top of the chair lift, that photo.

And then they said, OK, now you have to go down the hill.

And I'm like, can I just get the chairlift back?

Cause that's like a ride.

That seems pretty fun.

And I was with my ski instructor.

Wait.

How did it go getting off the chairlift?

I did fall off the ski lift.

But then I brushed myself off for the photo.

Uh-huh.

So yeah.

Professional.

And then I had a ski instructor, Piglet, who came with us.

Because I'm in the middle of filming Cats.

So I can't break any bones.

And she's like, OK, so you just got to ski down now.

And I'm like, oh, I don't know.

And I skied for about 100 feet, Ellen.

Oh, OK.

Have you skied before.

Yeah, but I forgot how to do it.

Right.

So what happened is then I had to get medically rescued.

Right.

I'm sorry.

But there was nothing wrong with you.

Right?

Not technically.

[LAUGHTER]

But more just a vibe that I didn't want

to ski down the massive hill.

[LAUGHTER]

Yeah.

And this lovely gentleman Scott came and rescued me in a sled.

But he said, in order to get enough speed

to get down to the bottom we had to go off the side of a cliff.

So that ended up being more scary than the actual skiing.

Seriously?

Yeah.

Yeah.

Yeah.

I was freaking out.

I bet.

I lost my poles.

I lost my [BLEEP].

I was just like, ah!

Yeah.

Going down on this little sled.

And you were there when Mariah Carey was there.

Yeah.

So you hung out.

Went out to dinner with Mariah.

Have you met her before?

No.

You'd never met her?

But obviously I love her music.

Right.

And so we went to a place called the Caribou Club.

I feel so cool, cause normally I don't go out to clubs.

I mean, I know I look like a partier.

But normally it's more bubble baths for me.

Uh-huh.

Mariah too.

She likes the bubble bath.

Yeah.

And so we went into this club.

And it's very exclusive.

And security demanded that we give our coats to them in order

to get into the club.

And Mariah's like, no.

My coat is part of the outfit.

No.

[LAUGHING]

And then I was like, what's going to happen?

And it's freezing cold outside the club.

So we really wanted to get in.

But then at the end of the day, she

did what was best for the group.

Yeah.

And we got in.

[LAUGHTER]

She's a team player.

Good to hear.

Cause she's such an awesome lady.

And then inside the club they started

playing her songs cause she was in there.

I'm like, yeah!

Dancing.

And so it turned out all right.

Yeah.

Well that sounds fancy.
