Yeah, now we start thinking. Ready for a special guest. Let's welcome our special guest. You know her starring with will Smith in "Collateral beauty." Please welcome naomie Harris. Hi there. Hey. Hi. Nice to see you. Hey, guys. From money penny to now working with Will Smith. Tell us about the experience. Oh my gosh. It was a nightmare. It was a real nightmare. No, I told will this story about how I -- in one of the first movies I had ever done I turned up at the premiere and replaced by another actress in the movie and so I stupidly told will this story so in between takes he would say to me, you know, you're going to be replaced. You're going to go. You're going to turn up at the cinema and it's going to be Keira knightley playing your role. That was my life on set with will. Big brother. Yeah, he is. He loves to torment me, it's great. You've always wanted to be an actress. Yes. Yeah, I've been acting since I was 9 years old. What was the inspiration? 21 years. I don't know where it came from. I just always spent hours in front of like the mirror trying to make myself cry, pretending I was different people. Doing different accents. I don't know. My mum just started thinking I was crazy. Yeah, that's an actress. That's the right answer. You say you sat in front of mirror to make yourself cry. I watched a movie last night that made me cry. There's no replacing you in this movie, by the way, will -- there's no way he can do that. Really it's a great film. Incredible film. It's like -- it's the perfect holiday movie because it reminds us about the importance of family and love and connection and, you know, it's really inspiring. Really beautiful. And making the most of every minute. Yeah. Exactly. Really celebrating the time you have instead of worrying about what you don't have. You guys want to see a little bit of it? Yeah. Trying to fix my mind. You lost a child, Howard. It'll never be fixed. Wow. I know, and, yes, that is very deep and this is an emotional movie but I promise you it is also -- you finish the movie and you feel really good. You want to go and sort of enjoy each moment. So thank you for a terrific performance. Thank you. And I understand that we share a bond. We do? What? "The hills are alive." Oh. Oh, my gosh. Yes. The best movie of all time, right? It really is. Look, I cued this up for you. In hopes you might sing with me. Oh, my. Do you want to do a sing-along? Should we? Ready, one, two, three. ??? The hills are alive ??? ??? oh, no, it's just me. She'll go on on her own. That made my morning. Thank you very much. I love it. Happens to me all the time. I would like to say that I believe that Julie Andrews must have inspired you. You watched that movie as a kid. Your performances are so layered and different as are Julie's always but do you think -- is she one of your main inspirations. I think so definitely. I watched that movie like all the time as a kid. I can tell by your beautiful singing. I was waiting for you to just go with it and then I would join in later. I have such a terrible singing voice. It's awful. I wish I had gotten that from the movies, learn how to sing. I'm sure you could do it. More James bond for you? I hope so. I really hope so. James bond fans, I really hope so. There's no news so far. No news if Daniel is coming back or what's happening so -- I bet he's coming back. I hope you are too. Thanks for coming in today. "Collateral beauty" hits theaters December 16th.
