At our table, they did it. Good, they're marshmallow. I picked it up to eat it. I put it in my mouth and I eat it. Hot soapy water goes down my throat and like, is this -- he goes, that's a hand towel. You couldn't have told me before I put it in my mouth. Now it's in the movie. You should thank him. It's a hilarious scene. In this movie, your third collaboration with the one and only Melissa Mccarthy. She's a force of nature. Hurricane Melissa. Here's what she has to say about you. Uh-oh.

Oh, my goodness. I can only say really nice things about her. We just have the best time. We're best friends. We don't have to say words. It's very easy. Unlikely and amazing pairing of Melissa with Jason stratham -- He's a good who walks among us on Earth. I have been a friend of his forevers. When I saw the crank movies, he's funny.

What was it like for you to be in a Paul Feig movie? It was exciting. . The whole setup was amazing. We were out in the woods and he was still in a three-piece suit. I had a chance to see Paul give the talent the ability to -- Play with it a little bit, yeah. And he'll say, do it this way and they'll say okay and then try this. Try this. A lot of extra jokes. It's so, so funny also a great thriller. You have really, you really held true, you're a huge bond fan, great job. Thank you. I wanted to make a real "Spy" movie that's funny.
