Billie Lourd on Mom Carrie Fisher & New Movie Booksmart


>>Jimmy: DOIN’ WELL, THANK YOU.>>GOOD.>>Jimmy: I WILL TELL YOU, I SAW YOUR MOVIE TODAY, AND IT’S JUST GREAT. AND NOT ONLY IS IT GREAT, YOU’RE GREAT IN IT. AND I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE ONE OF THOSE MOVIES THAT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, EVERY FOUR YEARS OR SO THERE’S A MOVIE THAT PEOPLE OF A CERTAIN AGE GROUP JUST IDENTIFY WITH AND LOVE FOR THE WHOLE REST OF THEIR LIVES, AND I THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE ONE OF THOSE MOVIES.>>I TOTALLY AGREE. I KEEP SAYING IF I HAD THIS MOVIE IN HIGH SCHOOL I WOULD BE LESS OF A [ BLEEP ].>>Jimmy: PUT THAT ON THE POSTER.>>YEAH, PUT IT ON THE POSTER. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.>>Jimmy: AND IT’S VERY FUNNY, AND THE DIALOG IS VERY NATURAL. IT SEEMS ALL, YOU NEVER FEEL LIKE YOU’RE WATCHING, YOU ALMOST FEEL LIKE YOU’RE WATCHING A BUNCH OF KIDS, YOU KNOW?>>YEAH. AND THE REASON THAT HAPPENED IS BECAUSE THIS CAST IS SO INCREDIBLE. AND A LOT OF THOSE KIDS ARE NOT ACTORS. SO THEY REALLY ARE THEMSELVES. IT MAKES THE MOVIE SO MUCH BETTER BECAUSE OF THAT.>>Jimmy: YEAH.>>INCLUDING ME, BUT I’M NOT A FULL GG. I’M LIKE A HALF GIGI.>>Jimmy: YOUR CHARACTER IS A MANIAC, RIGHT?>>YEAH, IN THE NICEST WAY.>>Jimmy: DID YOU BASE THAT CHARACTER ON A PERSON THAT YOU KNOW?>>UM, IF I KNOW MYSELF, THEN YES.>>Jimmy: IT IS BASED ON YOU.>>IT IS SLIGHTLY BASED ON ME. GIGI’S BASICALLY MY ID. DANCE LIKE NO ONE’S WATCHING, THAT’S WHAT GIGI DOES, BASICALLY. SHE’S A LITTLE BIT OF ME AT MY PRIME. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUYS, BUT MY PRIME WAS DURING BAR MITZVAH SEASON, AND I PEAKED, 2000, WHATEVER, EIGHT, WAS A GREAT YEAR.>>Jimmy: WHY WAS THAT YOUR PRIME?>>BECAUSE I DANCED LIKE NO ONE WAS WATCHING. I WAS GIGI. ONE OF MY FAVORITE BAR MITZVAHS WAS MY FIRST ONE I WENT TO. THEY HAD THOSE WEIRD, CREEPY TEA CANDLES. I DON’T KNOW WHY I’M CALLING THEM CREEPY, BUT THEY WERE LINE NG LINEING THE TOP OF THE STAIRS, AND I LOOKED AT IT LIKE I WAS IN THE TITANIC OR SOMETHING BIZARRE. THEN IT GOT A LITTLE WARM AND I LOOKED DOWN AND MY SKIRT WAS FULLY AFLAME. AND, BECAUSE KIDS ARE SO NICE, THEY ALL RAN AWAY.>>Jimmy: REALLY?>>THEY ALL RAN AWAY, ONE GUY STAYED. JARED. THANK YOU SO MUCH, JARED.>>Jimmy: GOOD OLD JARED. IT’S NOT JARED FROM SUBWAY, IS IT?>>I WISH IT WAS. I REALLY DO. SO THE DAMN SKIRT IS ON FIRE, EVERYONE RUNS AWAY. I WAS LIKE I’M GOING TO STRIP THIS SKIRT OFF, I’D RATHER TAKE THE SKIRT OFF THAN BE ON FIRE.>>Jimmy: YEAH, SURE.>>I TAKE THE SKIRT OFF, I’M WEARING THOSE WEIRD ABERCROMBIE & FITCH UNDERWEAR. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW ABOUT THOSE, I FEEL LIKE YOU LOVE THOSE.>>Jimmy: WHAT DO HE THIS LOOK LIKE?>>THEY’RE LITTLE SAD STRIPES, EVERYTHING IS SAD AND CREEPY THIS NIGHT. SAD STRIPES, REALLY COVERED TOO MUCH. HAD A WEIRD STRING ON THE SIDE. IT WASN’T A GREAT THING TO BE WEARING WHEN YOU KNEW YOUR SKIRT WAS GOING TO CATCH FIRE AND TAKE IT OFF. BUT THAT’S WHAT I WAS WEARING, SO THEN THAT BECAME MY M.O. WHAT I’M TRYING TO SAY WITH THIS LONG, INSANE BAR MITZVAH STORY IS THAT’S GIGI. AND I WAS GIGI WHEN I WAS 13 AND I JUST WENT DOWNHILL.>>Jimmy: IT’S A GOOD THING YOU WENT ON FIRE AND YOU WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO DO THIS ROLE. YOUR MOM’S CARRIE FISHER, YOUR DAD RUNS ONE OF THE BIGGEST TALENT AGENCIES, CAA. YOUR HOUSE, I WOULD IMAGINE.>>VERY NORMAL, WHAT DO YOU SNEEN. >>Jimmy: WERE YOU AWARE IT WASN’T NORMAL?>>NO, LIKE ANY OTHER KID. I THOUGHT MY PARENTS WERE WEIRD AS HELL AND IRRITATING AND EMBARRASSING, LIKE ANY ONE DOES.>>Jimmy: IN WHAT WAYS WERE THEY WEIRD, IRRITATING AND EMBARRASSING?>>YOU’VE MET MY MOM, YOU KNOW. THE WOMAN NEVER WORE A BRA. SO SHE WOULD COME TO SCHOOL.>>Jimmy: THAT’S ONE OF THE THINGS I LIKE ABOUT HER.>>ME TOO. I DON’T KNOW, NOT WHEN I WAS 13, THOUGH. NOW I’M REALLY INTO THE FACT THAT SHE DIDN’T WEAR A BRA BECAUSE I CAN RELATE. BUT AT 13, IT WAS A NIGHTMARE. I HAD MAINLY LIKE GUY FRIENDS, AND AT 13, YOU DON’T WANT YOUR MONDAY’S DOUBLE Ds HANGIN’ OUT. IT WASN’T GREAT. AND I THINK ANYBODY CAN RELATE TO THAT. IT’S A NORMAL MOM PROBLEM, PUT YOUR BOOBS AWAY. THEY’RE GREAT, BUT.>>Jimmy: FOR A CERTAIN PART OF YOUR LIFE YOU WANT THEM OUT. WHEN YOU’RE FEEDING.>>YES.>>Jimmy: AND THEN PUT THEM AWAY.>>LOCK’EM DOWN.>>Jimmy: DID YOU BRING BOYS HOME AND SHE WOULD EMBARRASS YOU?>>ACTUALLY MY CURRENT BOYFRIEND, I BROUGHT HIM HOME, AND I PULLED HER ASIDE AND I SAID MOM, CAN WE SIT AT THE TABLE TONIGHT, LIKE CAN WE MAKE DINNER AND JUST HAVE A NORMAL NIGHT, WHATEVER NORMAL IS IN OUR WORLD, CAN WE PLEASE JUST SIT DOWN AND DO THAT? AND HE GOT THERE AND SHE WOULD NOT LEAVE HER BED. WE ENDED UP SITTING IN THE BED, LIKE ALL FIVE OF US.>>Jimmy: WHAT?>>AND SHE TOLD SOME WEIRD STORIES THAT I’D PROBABLY GET BLEEPED OUT FOR TELLING ON HERE, SO I’LL JUST LEAVE IT TO YOUR IMAGINATION.>>Jimmy: REALLY? EVERYONE IN THE BED?>>EVERYONE IN THE BED ALL THE TIME.>>Jimmy: WHAT ABOUT YOUR DAD?>>AND NOT IN THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.>>Jimmy: I FEEL LIKE IT WOULD BE ONLY FAIR FOR YOU TO TELL AN EMBARRASSING STORY ABOUT HIM.>>THAT IS TRUE, BUT HE, LIKE ANY PARENT, I’M SURE SOME PARENTS HERE, MAYBE EVEN YOU CAN RELATE. SO MY MOM ALWAYS SHOWED UP TO SCHOOL AND I DIDN’T WANT HER THERE BECAUSE SHE NEVER WORE A BRA. MY DAD WAS, DIDN’T WANT TO BE THERE, BECAUSE LIKE MOST PARENTS, WHO WANTS TO BE FRIENDS WITH YOUR FRIEND, YOUR KID’S, FRIENDS, WHATEVER THE HELL IT IS.>>Jimmy: IT’S LIKE A BLIND DATE. YOU GET FIXED UP WITH OTHER PARENTS.>>IT’S NOT FAIR. JUST BECAUSE THE KID IS COOL DOESN’T MEAN THE MOM IS COOL, TOO. IT’S USUALLY THE OPPOSITE. SO MY POOR DAD HAD TO DEAL WITH IT. AND HE MADE A RULE HE WOULD NOT MEET THE PARENTS UNLESS I REALLY, REALLY LIKED THE FRIEND. HAD TO BE DEEPLY COMMITTED.>>Jimmy: THAT’S SMART I GUESS. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU’RE IN A POSITION LIKE HIS.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>Jimmy: CONGRATULATIONS ON THE MOVIE. IT’S GREAT AND YOU WERE TERRIFIC IN IT. IT’S CALLED

  1. Ok so we get it….she's a nobody, but she's jewish and the daughter of a one-movie-ceebrity, so she gets to go on Jimmy Kimmel. P.S: If you look at the main cast of the movie Booksmart, everyone is pretty much Jewish…and that my friends is why most Americans who are non-jews are not at the top in the long run….because they only help each other. Then Israel gets all the help it needs to commit genocide on poor Christian Palestinians whose land they are stealing because they are so desperate to belong somewhere. I get it, most people don't think these are dots to connect. I see it, because I look at the big picture and the long run. But it's ok, let's not say anything because they will conveniently call us "anti-semitic" when its not true and we are in fact "anti-zionist"

  2. When politicians talk about "diversity," what they always mean is "fewer White people."
    When they say "Diversity is our greatest strength," what they mean is "White people are our greatest weakness."
    Diversity means chasing down every last White person.
    Diversity is a codeword for White genocide.
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  3. Such a brilliant movie. Didn't see a trailer, a poster or read anything about it (so rare these days) and it blew me away. Film of the year so far.

  4. Love Billie as much as I love her always beautiful, talented, funny and amazing Mom, Carrie and marvelous grandma Debbie! She got a lot of them. She´s so pretty, strong and funny…And talented of course. God bless her always. In spite of the situation, life goes on and she deserves a great one. Congratulations Billie. Thanks, Jimmy for having her on the show. Blessings…

  5. She is awesome! I've never seen her speak before and she didn't disappoint. So engaging and down-to-earth …it's in the blood!

  6. Close your eyes and you can hear Carrie in her voice. Not just the sound, but the words too. Billie is awesome in her own right, but its cool to see inklings of her mom come through. She's a part of a legacy of great women.

  7. I can never except you murdering my children, send me my money, it is mine and not yours to ever jeep mfrom me, I never kept one cent from you, not once, not ever.

  8. Looks like Debbie Reynolds. I have heard good things about "Booksmart" and will see it. Odd, we now have two women named Billie: Lourd and Eillish.

  9. i kinda want to marry her and give her a big hug and tell her everything is gonna be alright and lets go get high and go bowling

  10. I like her a lot she’s gonna carry on her mothers legacy with acting because she’s a great actress too and how she handled her mothers passing with dignity and grace made me respect the hell out of her

  11. Her voice is noticeablely different than all her characters on AHS, which is kind of tripping me out, since none of those characters have a certain accent or voice change requirement or anything, if that makes sense?

  12. She was amazing in the movie. Everyone really does an amazing job but loved her character the most.

  13. Can’t wait to go to see booksmart!!!! Didn’t even know Billie was in it but now I’m more excited!!

  14. Billie has Carrie's quirky personality, for sure. She's so real and seems like she'd be fun to hang out with.

  15. this is the second video I see where her mom is in the title its sad about her mom passing but like she is more than just carrie fishers daughter

  16. That is Carrie Fisher's daughter. You can tell the wit and acerbic charm was passed on. I love her already..

  17. Not to offend any Star Wars fans. Never got into Star Wars, and I watched Booksmart loving the movie and her character Gigi a lot without knowing who she is. Talented and radiant actor.

  18. I just wanna be her best friend

    Her talking about Carrie got me a little teary eyed

    Rest In Peace

    She’d be so proud of Billie and I hope she knows that

  19. She seems to be fully and unapologetically herself. Just like her mom. Carrie Fisher never gave a damn what you thought of her. She was always too busy living her life and being awesome.

  20. Carrie Fisher has some stories to tell. I wish i knew her. I picture her as one of those people you are impatient to meet during your daily life, just to be with them and have some fun. She was larger than life.

  21. Gigi!!! 🤘

    Jumping off a building and then reappearing downstairs later totally dry and unhurt lol asking you why YOU'RE trippin' 😂
