Transcript for We had Jennifer Aniston and Dolly Parton interview each other
We've been telling you about this. Jennifer aniston and dolly parton teaming up for a brand-new movie called "Dumplin'." This morning they interview each other as our special correspondents. Take a look. Okay, so my first question for you, miss dolly. "Dumplin'," our film's namesake has a strong role model and quotes your songs and you religiously. Who impacted dolly? Who was your inspiration. My inspiration was my family. My mother's people are all musical. My uncle used to take me around to different places to sing on radio and TV. When did you first pick up a guitar. I learned to play at 7. That's when I started to write my little song, little fun little easy songs. When you were 7 years old. Uh-huh. Wow. Oh, god. This is good. Is it true you once said that it's a good thing you were born a girl otherwise you would have been a drag queen. Yes, it is true because I'm so overexaggerated and I have so many fans that, you know, in the gay community and the drag queens even in your movie, she goes down to the bar and they taught her how to do her makeup. I've always had drag queens dress like me and I even lost a dolly parton look-alike contest. I heard that story once. Overall what do you hi this film teaches us. You don't have to look like everybody else. You don't have to be a raving beauty to be special and to be beautiful. That's right. I really think it's a wonderful little movie. Oh. You did good producing it and acting. Thank you, darling. Tell us about the girl in the movie, the most beautiful song. ??? I want to be the girl in the movie ??? What inspired that. That little girl, I just pictured her going to the movies seeing other people live their lives, sitting in a movie theater eating her popcorn, you know, wanting to be who the girl was up on the screen. So I really loved that song, that's one of my very favorites in the whole movie. How do you write music? Like do you get a lyric first? Do you write it down on napkins? Like what's your process? All of the above. All the above. Yeah, I used to dream songs and they were really good in my sleep and I would think I would remember it so I always sleep with a notepad by my bed. What song do you get asked to sing the most? "9 to 5." ??? 9:00 to 5:00 ??? If I walk in a room, people will say, sing "9 to 5" because everyone knows that. My favorite song myself is "Coat of many colors" ??? she made my coat of many colors ??? That one is the most personal to me saying you don't have to have money to be rich. Our mother taught us that and our dad. So, Jennifer, full's shut up for a minute. Seriously. I want to rank you a few questions. Yes, dolly. Well, my question is, what is your favorite scene in "Dumplin'" and why? The scene where willadean is signing up to join the beauty pageant. And I catch her sort of in her moment of rebellion. This is going to be so much fun. Pageants are harder than you think. I'm Rosie Dixon's daughter. It runs in my blood. I really connected to the mother/daughter relationship of willadean and Rosie. So people are very interested in how you stay so beautiful and in shape. What is your favorite form of exercise? Well, lately that has been boxing. Ah. Really? You're drenched to the bone when you're done. And it turns out it feels pretty nice to punch something that's not a person. Well, Matthew Perry once said that you were the worst driver in history of drivers. Is that true? Wow. This question really comes back to haunt me. He'll -- That's Matthew. He's waiting for me. He's revving up his motor. I think I'm a fabulous driver. We get a bad rap. Thank you, dolly, for sitting with me today. I just love you so much. I love you too. Mwah. Did a pretty good job. You know, Jen and Reese Witherspoon are working on a series where they play morning hosts and Jen looks like she's good at it. You can find "Dumplin'" on Netflix on December 7th.
