I CHOSE LARGO. IT WAS A SMART AUDIENCE AND I WANTED A SMART KIND OF SNOBBY AUDIENCE BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT PEOPLE TO JUST GO, OH, IT'S ELLEN. I WANTED THEM TO JUDGE ME PROPERLY. >> James: YOU WANT TO EARN THE LAUGHS. >> EXACTLY.

( LAUGHTER ) AND THAT -- I DON'T KNOW EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT IS. >> James: I MEAN, YOU LOOK LIKE YOU ARE FLEEING A COUNTRY AND YOU'VE GRABBED THE CLOSEST SHIRT, AND IT'S THE SHIRT YOU USE FOR ART. >> YEAH. I DON'T EVEN KNOW -- I MEAN, I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT. WHY WOULD I -- AND IT'S NOT ME AT ALL. THE PANTS, IT'S CUT OFF, BUT THE PANTS WERE...
