Jennifer Love Hewitt stopped by the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn on Friday, where she talked about her new album ‘Baren**ed’ [note: this is unfortunately censored to avoid triggering Google’s awful SafeSearch image filter], her movie ‘The Tuxedo’ with Jackie Chan, and she performed a tongue trick — turning her tongue into a flower. Later in the show, she performed ‘Can I Go Now’ from her new album ‘Baren**ed’, which dropped on Tuesday. For a rough transcript and a few photos, including the lame flower trick, read on.
Craig: Our first guest is a multi-talented actress and singer. She has starred in the “Party of Five” and “I know what you did last summer.” And the film “The Tuxedo,” both right now.
Craig: This is Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Craig: How are you?
Jennifer: How are you?
Craig: You look great.
Jennifer: Thank you.
Craig: You look — you always look sexy. You always look happening.
Jennifer: Thank you.
Craig: But you hair slightly sophisticated, darker, more serious.
Craig: Am I wrong?
Jennifer: No. I went and said, darker, more mysterious.
Craig: I guess you’re supposed to be somewhat of a klutz. Is that —
Jennifer: Yes. I’m a horrible klutz.
Craig: You walked out. You didn’t fall or anything.
Jennifer: There was two steps. I was like, ok. It’s going to go.
Craig: Especially women wearing heels. Some of them are our male guests who like to dress up. You look great. How do you handle the action scenes with Jackie Chan.
Jennifer: I punch him in the nose.
Craig: That’s great. He’s been trained —
Jennifer: He’s been trained if somebody punches you in the nose you take him out. I was like, this might be my last moment a didn’t do anything. He gave me a hard time. And you say the hash-hash
Craig: Does he take seriously?
Jennifer: No. He’s funny.
Craig: You’re not lifting a loot right now?
Jennifer: No, no. Just Coca-Cola. That’s about it.
Craig: Do you remember that card trick?
Jennifer: Yes. It failed and it was awful.
Craig: Yeah, it was fine.
Craig: Later tonight you’re doing a tongue trick that will — I can’t —
[Applause] Apparently you’re — wait a second. Wait a second. You’re acting all shy and embarrassed. You were the one who said I can do a tongue trick.
Jennifer: I’m always asked to do a trick when I come here. I’m very limited. I’m not very talented when it comes to tricks.
Craig: If it goes well, and I think it will,e you do it over and over again each time you come back.
Jennifer: That’s good.
Craig: This is interesting. You’re very successful, big star, and you live with mommy?
Craig: That’s so down to earth.
Jennifer: I love my mom.
Craig: You know? I love my mom, but I don’t live with her.
Jennifer: She’s my best friend. It’s fun.
Craig: Walk me through fun with mom.
Jennifer: We dance around the house in our pajamas like dorks.
Jennifer: The second time — the second I get home there’s a home cooked. She’s the best cook.
Craig: You can’t cook but she can?
Jennifer: Yes. She does laundry.
Craig: She spoils you.
Jennifer: She wakes me up every mo she goes, hey, sweety, it’s time to wake up. I’m like hi, mommy. I’m excited to wake up in the morning.
Craig: My mom used to wake me and my brother up and it used to drive crazy. My dad would say up and at’ em. Your mom apparently has a tongue.
Jennifer: I was told you can’t occurs in your live because ladies don’t. They can be half n*ked in movies but they can’t —
Jennifer: I promised that I wouldn’t. If I get angry about something. I say, mom, I really angry and my mom gets elicit with things and she rants and raves for me. Screams like —
Craig: That’s funny. You’ll be upset about something, mom, I’m upset and —
Jennifer: It makes me laugh. It’s like —
Craig: God dang. Does she say god dang?
Jennifer: She says things that you’ve probably never heard
Craig: You laugh when she does this?
Jennifer: I don’t get upset and I don’t have to say that stuff.
Craig: Do you things?
Jennifer: I’ve thrown a thing or two. I like to take objects and likes beat things on my bed. I’d thriket take my pillow and go — and hit stuff.
Craig: That would get you up set? You seem to have a charmed life?
Jennifer: I don’t get up set very much. Most of the time like when my friends or family is up set, that will up set me. That’s personal. Then I have to the beat stuff on my bed. Craig: That makes sense. Beat stuff on your bed. Oh, I’m sorry.
Craig: I didn’t go there. You didn’t go there. Shame on them.

Jennifer: I love you for telling me that.
Craig: It’s in Minnesota.
Jennifer: Are you making it up? Are you lying?
Craig: I’m not making it up. You know what? I love you.
Jennifer: You do?

Jennifer: Since I was sixth. This is actually mid fourth record. I’m excite about it. It’s such an important thing.
Craig: I want to hear some ballads. Did you have to do the bare n*ked thing?
Jennifer: I had to do it to people’s reaction to “bare n*ked,” although it has nothing to do with being bare n*ked. I’m sorry to disappoint you.
Craig: What does it have to do with?
Jennifer: It has to do with feeling vulnerable. I kind of want to tell young people that other people feel the same way.
Craig: I don’t want to get heavy with you, but is there a different between bare n*ked and buck n*ked?
Jennifer: Bare n*ked is the front. Buck n*ked is back.
