Parties. It's that same kind of vibe. We have a lot of fun. Kevin harlt. Mike S. George Lopez. L it's a lot of fun. Did you do that move that people do where you call all your friends and say listen I can't pay you very much but because I'm going to leverage this relationship right now, Freaking movie. It was labor of love honestly. We did it at very small bump it. And it was out there having fun when you make comedy that's what it's all about.

The guy has had 6 no. 1 movies in a row. I hate him. Hate him with a passion. A little. No no. Most amazing thing ever. This is something. Even if the movie is not good it's no. 1. He is amazing. He's one of the funniest people I have ever met in my life and hardest worker and deserves everything that he is getting. He's going in and this is his time. He's getting it. I want a little pixie dust. It's funny. In Hollywood we alwahollywood we always like battle. I'm way better looking than him. I have a lot more money than him. You know what I mean. So I let him have the little. The best friendship go bad go bad. The cars are cooler. He's a little funnier than me right now. But L get the edge up. Self depricating thing. He makes so much fun of himself. That makes him -- that's what it is. Stand up is out of here. Ize definitely he should be on the mount rush more stand up in my book and then to be able to have the same type of work ethic to get out there and sell a project and have everybody love you man. He's really doing it in a big way. Multi-talented. Love him and hate him. Where do you find him. That's a lot of love. Best kind of love. Kevin hart. He and Fallon.
