♪ ♪ ♪ >> Stephen: WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY. MY GUESTS TONIGHT ARE TWO BELOVED ACTORS. ONE YOU KNOW FROM "LOVE ACTUALLY" AND HIS ACADEMY AWARD-WINNING ROLE IN "THE KING'S SPEECH." THE OTHER YOU KNOW FROM "THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA," "BIG NIGHT," AND "THE HUNGER GAMES." THEY NOW STAR TOGETHER IN THE NEW FILM "SUPERNOVA." >> CAN I ASK YOU, DID YOU WANT ONE? AN AUTOGRAPH? FROM HIM? BECAUSE I SAW YOU LOOKING, AND I WASN'T SURE IF YOU WANTED ONE. >> NO, IT'S ALL RIGHT. >> HE'S VERY SHY. DO YOU HAVE A PEN WITH YOU? ALL RIGHT. BUT IF YOU WANT ONE, HE'LL SIGN ONE FOR YOU. SHE'S SHY, BUT HE WILL. EITHER ON THE NAPKIN, OR IF YOU HAVE ONE OF HIS PIANO ALBUMS. >> THANKS. >> OKAY, ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. IT'S VERY NICE OF YOU. THANK YOU. HOW DID YOU COME TO BE THIS PERSON?
01:01
>> I DON'T KNOW. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY I DO IT BECAUSE IT REALLY ISN'T EVEN SATISFYING ANYMORE HALF THE TIME, ANYWAY. >> SO WHY DO YOU DO IT? >> BECAUSE OF THE OTHER HALF. ( LAUGHS ) >> Stephen: PLEASE WELCOME TO "A LATE SHOW," COLIN FIRTH AND STANLEY TUCCI. GENTLEMEN, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. >> THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING US. >> Stephen: IT'S WONDERFUL THAT YOU COULD TAKE THE TIME TO JOIN US FROM WHAT APPEARS TO BE SOME SORT OF ALLEGORICAL PLAY ABOUT GOOD AND EVIL, EITHER THAT OR YOU'RE PLAYING-- YOU'RE PLAYING-- YOU'RE PLYING "SPY VERSUS SPY" FROM "MAD MAGAZINE" FROM MY CHILDHOOD. >> THAT'S A NEGATIVE. >> I'M SO SORRY. WE'RE NOT VERY IMAGINATIVE WHEN IT COMES TO BACKGROUNDS. >> THIS IS OUR RELATIONSHIP ( LAUGHS ). >> Stephen: YIN, I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU. YANG, I'LL GET TO YOU LATER. YOU TWO OF YOU PLAY A COUPLE IN THE FILM "SUPERNOVA," BUT I UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR 20 YEARS. >> YUP. >> Stephen: FIRST OF ALL, YOU GUYS LOOK LIKE A FUN FRIENDSHIP.
02:03
WHAT'S YOUR MEET CUTE? HOW DID YOU GUYS GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER? >> WE WERE DOING A MOVIE ABOUT NAZIS -- >> Stephen: I'M SORRY, SOMETHING ABOUT NAZIS. YOU MET THROUGH NAZIS. I DIDN'T CATCH SOME OF THAT. WE HAD A BREAK-UP. >> I REALLY DO NEED TO CLARIFY. A FILM ABOUT NAZIS. >> Stephen: THERE YOU GO. THAT'S MUCH BETTER. YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL THESE DAYS. >> WE DO. AND THIS WAS-- YEAH, WE WERE DOING A FILM ABOUT NAZIS, AND IT'S-- IT'S NOT THE MOST PROBABLY MEET CUTE, BUT, STANLEY, THERE WAS A LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND I WAS VERY DRAWN TO STANLEY, AND TO THIS DAY, HE'S THE NICEST NAZI I'VE MET. >> Stephen: THAT'S QUITE A COMPLIMENT. >> YEAH. >> YEAH, YEAH. >> Stephen: IT'S A LOW BAR. >> YEAH. >> Stephen: NOW, STANLEY, THE SCRIPT "SUPERNOVA," FOR THIS FILM, CAME TO YOU FIRST, AND I UNDERSTAND YOU SORT OF SURREPTITIOUSLY SLID IT OVER TO COLIN, SO TO SPEAK.
03:07
THAT IS NOT NORMALLY HOW THINGS GO. WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO GET THIS INTO HIS HANDS AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE? >> WELL, IT WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SCRIPT. YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T OFTEN GET A SCRIPT THAT'S WRITTEN AS SUBTLY AS THIS, WITH SUCH RESTRAINT AND TRUTH. AND WHEN HARRY GAVE IT TO ME, I THOUGHT-- ALL I COULD THINK OF IS, WELL, THE OTHER ROLE IS PERFECT FOR COLIN. AND I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING-- WE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING TOGETHER FOR A LONG TIME AGAIN. SO I, YOU KNOW, MET WITH HARRY, AND THEN I SAID, "I THINK COLIN WOULD BE GREAT FOR THIS." AND THEN, UNBEKNOWNST TO HARRY, I SLIPPED IT-- I HAD SLIPPED IT TO COLIN ALREADY. AND COLIN HAD READ IT, AND HE SAID, "MY GOD. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL." AND I SAID, I KNOW. >> Stephen: COLIN, DID YOU HAVE TO ACT SURPRISED WHEN YOU WERE CONTACTED BY THE PRODUCTION, LIKE, "OH, I'D LOVE TO READ IT?" >> IT WAS A BIT LIKE THAT. MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS, THANK YOU, STANLEY, BUT AM I INVITED? AND WE HAD TO JUMP THROUGH A FEW HOOPS.
04:12
MERCIFULLY, I THINK THE BRITISH ARE VERY POLITE, SO I THINK ONCE STANLEY HIT KNOW-- PUT THEM IN AN AWKWARD POSITION, I FELT, YOU KNOW, THEY JUST DIDN'T-- THEY WEREN'T IN A POSITION TO SAY NO ANYMORE. AND THEN-- >> NO, IT'S WEIRD, BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT BANKABLE. >> Stephen: THEY WERE STUCK WITH AN ACADEMY AWARD WINNER. I FEEL SO SORRY FOR THEM. >> YEAH, YEAH. WELL, YOU KNOW, WE'RE GREAT INVERTED SNOBS, WHERE WE COME FROM. BUT, YOU KNOW, NOT TO LOOK A GIFT HORSE IN THE MOUTH, THE FIRST THING WE DID WAS THEN ASK IF WE COULD SWITCH ROLES. >> Stephen: THIS IS MY FAVORITE PART OF THE STORY IS THAT NOT ONLY DID YOU PUT THEM IN AN AWKWARD POSITION BY SLIPPING HIM THE SCRIPT. HOW-- HOW LONG BEFORE YOU ACTUALLY WERE SUPPOSED TO START SHOOTING DID YOU DECIDE THAT YOU GUYS SHOULD SWITCH? >> HOW LONG WAS IT? >> I DON'T KNOW. A FEW WEEKS. >> IT WAS A WHILE. WE DIDN'T-- WE DIDN'T THINK OF IT ON DAY ONE. >> WE DID-- BUT WE DIDN'T KNOW. AND THEN COLIN CAME TO ME ONE DAY, AND HE SAID, ", YOU KNOW, I
05:16
THINK WE SHOULD SWITCH ROLES." AND I SAID, "WELL, ACTUALLY, I'VE BEEN THINKING THE SAME THING." AND WE WENT TO HARRY, POOR■ç HARRY-- >> Stephen: THE DIRECTOR. >> THE DIRECTOR, SORRY, JUCH JUS BLANCHED AND THOUGHT, "GOD, WHY DID I HIRE THESE TWO PEOPLE?" THEN HE SAID, LET'S READ SOME SCENES," AND WE READ SOME SCENES, AND THEN IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE WAY IT ENDED UP. >> Stephen: HAD YOU ALREADY BEEN MEASURED FOR WARDROBE OR ANYTHING? DID THEY HAVE TO LET OUT SOME PANTS. >> NOT UNTIL THE NEXT SIX WEEKS. >> WE ACTUALLY AUDITIONED, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE HARRY WASN'T SO WE VOLUNTEERED TO READ FOR THE OTHER ROLES. , WHICH WAS AN ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING EXPERIENCE. I HAD ALWAYS BEEN CONVINCED STANLEY WOULD BE BETTER FOR TUSKER, THE ROLE HE EVENTUALLY PLAYED. I WASN'T NECESSARILY CONVINCED I WOULD BE BETTER FOR THE ROLE I ENDED UP PLAYING. BUT WE TRIED IT OUT, AND SURE ENOUGH, STANLEY WON THE AUDITION
06:19
IN BOTH ROLES. >> COMPLETELY. >> Stephen: WHY DIDN'T YOU DO BOTH-- DID DIDN'T YOU DO BOTH, STANLEY? I DON'T UNDERSTAND. >> THEY HAD ALREADY HIRED HIM, SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? ONE WOULD FEEL BADLY. >> Stephen: THAT WOULD BE AWKWARD. THAT WOULD BE AWKWARD. NOW, IS THIS TRUE YOU SHOT THIS IN THE LAKE DISTRICT, WHICH IS EXTRAORDINARILY BEAUTIFUL? >> YES. >> YEAH. >> Stephen: THAT'S NICE WORK. THAT'S NICE WORK, IF YOU CAN GET IT. SO YOU'RE DEAR FRIENDS, YOU'RE SHOOTING TOGETHER ALL DAY. AND THEN WOULD YOU THEN HANG OUT AT NIGHT WHEN YOU WERE FINISHED SHOOTING? WERE YOU ALWAYS TOGETHER? >> BASICALLY, YES. >> Stephen: AND YOU DON'T GET SICK OF EACH OTHER. >> WE WERE IN THE DISTRICT LIVING IN-- WHAT DO THEY CALL THEM, COLIN, THE HOLIDAY CAMPS? >> I DON'T KNOW. IT WAS A LODGE. IT WAS A LOT OF BUNGALOWS. A LOT OF HUTS TOGETHER. AND WE WERE NEXT TO EACH OTHER. AND -- >> Stephen: HUTS? HUTS? >> THEY WEREN'T MADE OF STRAW. THEY WEREN'T MADE OF STRAW. >> THEY WERE WOODEN. >> Stephen: WELL, THE FIRST ONE WAS STRAW.
07:21
THE SECOND ONE WAS STICKS, AND THE LAST ONE WAS BRICKS. >> RIGHT, AND WE WERE IN THE BRICK ONES. >> Stephen: OKAY. >> YEAH, BUT, YEAH. NO, SO WE HAD THESE BUNGALOWS, WHICH WERE ACTUALLY QUITE LOVELY, NEXT TO EACH OTHER. AND COLIN WOULD COME OVER FOR DINNER. I WOULD COOK, AND THEN WE'D GET UP THE NEXT DAY AND, YOU KNOW, FILM. THEN WE'D TYKE ON THE WEEKENDS WE'D TAKE THE TRAIN HOME, WHICH CAN TAKE FIVE HOURS TO GET BACK TO LONDON, TO BE WITH OUR FAMILIES. AND WE'D SIT TOGETHER AND HAVE A BOTTLE OF WINE AND SOME CREDFUL FAST FOOD OR SOMETHING. AND WE SEEMED TO NOT GET TIRED OF EACH OTHER. AND IT'S FUNNY, BECAUSE WE'RE BOTH INCREDIBLY BORING. AND MAYBE THAT'S WHY. AS YOU'RE FINDING OUT NOW IN THIS INTERVIEW. >> Stephen: NOT AT ALL! NO, NOT AT ALL. I REALLY DO FEEL LIKE I'M TALKING TO TWO PEOPLE FROM THE AFTER-LIFE. I CAN'T GET OVER-- I STILL CAN'T GET OVER THE BLACK BACKGROUND AND THE WHITE BACKGROUND. IT'S LIKE CHOOSE YOUR ADVENTURE. >> WE'VE BEEN MONOCHROME ALL OUR LIVES, BUT I HAVE NEVER ACTUALLY
08:25
SEEN THIS PERFECTION OF SYMMETRY BEFORE. WE DID NOT PLAN THIS. >> YEAH, IT IS PRETTY COOL. >> Stephen: NOW, BUT-- >> WE ARE-- I MEAN THE TRAIN JOURNEYS-- I ENJOYED THEM. BUT ANYBODY LISTENING IN WOULD HAVE GLAZED OVER. I MEAN, YOU KNOW, I THINK-- AS A FUNDAMENTALLY BORING PERSON, I THINK ONE OF THE JOYS OF MEETING STANLEY IS IF YOU'RE BORING, IT'S, OBVIOUSLY, QUITE EXHAUSTING TO KEEP UP WITH FUN PEOPLE. >> Stephen: YES. >> AND THE JOY OF MEETING STANLEY IS THAT THERE'S-- I DON'T HAVE THAT PRESSURE, REALLY. >> RIGHT. ( LAUGHTER ) WE JUST -- >> Stephen: SURE. YEAH. >> IT'S-- >> IT'S THE BEST RELATIONSHIP EITHER OF US HAVE EVER HAD. >> Stephen: DO YOUR WIVES KNOW? >> NO. >> Stephen: OKAY, GOOD. WE HAVE TO TAKE A QUICK BREAK, BUT WHEN WE COME BACK, I WILL ASK COLIN IF HE HAS TASTED STANLEY'S FAMOUS NEGRONI. STICK AROUND. ♪♪
