I was 17 and I got the biggest zit of my life when we were shooting this scene..It was like another head growing out of my head...And so they went in and they tried to cover it, and they tried to light it, and there was nothing they could do. So, the hat went on...Yeah, that's the reason for the hat!"

    On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ben Affleck addressed his infamous back tattoo, saying, "It's a phoenix...It's a phoenix rising from my ass...It's meaningful to me. I like it. It was something I, sort of, kept private. It wasn't like I was doing photo shoots or whatever. We were two hours north of the city on some island in Hawaii, and we didn't know the paparazzi was there. So, they got a picture of my tattoo. And, yeah, the sentiment ran, you know, against. But, I love my tattoo. I'm very happy with it."

When Jimmy suggested that she keeps Winston grounded, he replied, "In the ground. Subterranean. [We hang out] everyday almost. We're almost like best friends. She even comes on set with me on the movies...every day. For Jordan Peele's Us, she's there! I even bring her to my meetings with agents...She'll be making coffee for herself in the middle of the meeting, crinkling things, and is just, like, 'Don't mind me! Don't mind me! That's a good idea for his career.'"

And my niece who works for me, she came in and she said, 'What is this?' and I said, 'Oh, some stupid script they sent me.' And she pulled it out and she said, 'ADAM SANDLER?!' and I said, 'Who is that?' And she said, 'Don't you know "The Hanukah Song" from Saturday Night Live?' So, she made me do the movie! And, we had so much fun. We had a blast."

    On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Matt admitted, "I liked the monkey! I like animals. The monkey was really cool. Schwimmer not so much...It's just 'cause he's the one that had to work with him the most, so he'd be like, 'Again with the monkey?' But, I got along great with him. Now, the monkey in the show was named Marcel, he was a boy. But, in real life, it was a girl named Katie. One time — so, we're shooting a scene with the monkey — the monkey just...goes right to the ceiling and just disappears into the blackness of the stage. It took them half an hour to get it down, waving meal worms at it."
