Cobie Smulders Didn’t Know She Was Playing an Alien in Spider-Man

-Welcome back.
How have you been? -I’ve been great.
It’s lovely to be back. Thank you for having me.
-How’s the fam? How’s the daughters?
-Everybody’s doing great -How old are they now?
-They’re 10 and almost 5. Getting double digits
up in here. It’s crazy. Yeah, it’s crazy.
-Happened so fast. Are they getting super psyched
for the holidays? -Yeah. I feel like,
you know, after Halloween, it’s just like a bullet
into Christmas. I don’t know why we just
go right over Thanksgiving. What happened?
-Yeah, you’re right. -What happened
with the most grateful — This is the grateful holiday
of the year. We should be
really celebrating this. -Nah.
[ Laughter ] Come on, we got to
get to the presents. -“Forget about it.
Give me my presents.” -I love Thanksgiving.
-I love Thanksgiving, too. I’m hosting a dinner
with 60 people on Thursday. [ Audience “oohs” ]
-Wait. What? -Yeah, 60 people.
-Where do you do this? -At my house.
-Wow. [ Laughter ]
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. -Yeah, yeah.
-No, I have a rule. No more than two people
over the house. [ Laughter ]
-Very intimate. -Yeah, I really want to
make sure I can hear everyone. [ Laughter ]
60 people in your house. -60 people is intense.
We had 89 last year. -Oh, my gosh!
-I don’t even have — I don’t know
who all these people are. I’m not that popular.
I don’t have that many friends. But on Thanksgiving —
-Who is it? -It’s all of Taran’s family,
and then a lot of Canadians. [ Laughter ] -In Canada, you have
Thanksgiving — -Yeah, in October.
We, like, do it earlier. -Yeah, I like that.
-So there’s a lot of displaced Canadians
that find a home to go to. -I need to space out
my holidays. -We got to space it out more,
you guys. -Because then you have that,
then you have New Year’s. I’ve been missing
my last couple New Year’s. -I know, me, too.
It’s just like — -I’m exhausted.
-When you have kids, it’s a hard holiday
to celebrate. -They don’t quite understand it.
-No, no. -Like, “Wake up!”
♪ Mrr-mrr-mrr ♪ -Celebrate and go to bed. [ Air horn blows ]
Oh, thank you! -Crying, they want
their bottles of milk. I’m like, “Get lost.”
-“Get out of here. Hit the road.”
-“Have a little fun.” -I know, come on,
it’s New Year’s! -You got a cool dad.
Come on, man. -Yeah, he’s super cool.
-[ Laughs ] But it is almost time for — you
know what I’m talking about. -What?
-The Tom Cruise cake. -Tom Cruise cake,
the glorious — -We talked about this.
-The most glorious time of year. Do you also receive
the Tom Cruise cake? -I totally get
the Tom Cruise cake. [ Laughter ]
Is that a thing we do? -It’s this because immediately,
you’re so grateful for the Tom Cruise cake.
-Tom Cruise gives you a cake… -You guys, you guys.
-…if you’re on the list. -You guys,
if you are on the list — -If you’re on the list —
-If you’re lucky enough to be on this list, he —
-Tom Cruise will send you a cake…
-Yeah. -…during the holidays,
and is it a coconut — -White chocolate coconut cake.
-It’s unbelievable. -I receive it.
And hopefully — maybe if I talk about it
on television, I will for sure receive it.
But it’s so good. I leave it in my freezer,
and it lasts until March. Like, I just slowly
chip away at this thing. -Wow. -It’s so good.
I don’t know why. I’m not even
a big sweets person. -I’m not either.
-But it’s so good. -It’s Tom Cruise.
-It’s Tom Cruise. Delicious. -You get a cake, you get
anything from Tom Cruise — -It’s going to be good.
-You eat, you put it in the freezer,
and you save it for a year. -It’s gonna be good.
[ Laughter ] -Take it out, have the kids
take pictures with it. -You just kind of hold it.
-“Take a picture with this cake! It’s Tom Cruise cake.” They’re like,
“I just want to go to sleep.” ♪ Mrr-mrr mrr ♪
[ Laughter ] Eat the cake! Eat the cake!
Eat the cake! -Take that cake.
-Eat the cake. -Take that cake.
-Cool dad. -Cool dad! I’m a cool dad.
-Taking the cake. [ Air horn blows ]
[ Laughter ] -My kids are so lucky
I’m their dad. -Oh, my gosh.
-They’re so lucky to have you. Can I just say?
They don’t even know. -I hope I get the cake, though,
this year. I got to say, you should get it
because you were in “Avengers,” you were in “Spider-Man,”
and combined, those films made
almost $4 billion. -$4 billion.
I feel like that’s — [ Cheers and applause ]
Yeah. -Cobie!
-Yeah! -You’re in
billion-dollar movies? -Um, I guess I am. It’s weird. -“Spider-Man,”
you wouldn’t tell — I was trying to get a twist
out of you last time. -You were.
-So I was being a little hard on you.
-You were. It was really —
I left in tears. -I got to make the headlines.
You left in tears. Yeah, I know, ’cause I was
screaming at you all the way. -He’s very intimidating.
All the way into the limousine, I was yelling.
[ Laughter ] “Give me a scoop!”
[ Laughter ] No, but I wanted you
to maybe say — -I don’t know any — They
don’t tell me anything. -You didn’t know
that you were an alien? -Well, no, I didn’t know that.
So, I mean, everybody — I’m even scared
to talk about it now, and it’s been out
for six months. -It’s already out, yeah.
Everyone knows. They’re cool with it.
-They’re cool. At the end of “Spider-Man,”
it’s revealed that — that we’re actually aliens.
And I think they made that decision,
after watching it and editing it all together,
to make us aliens, because I didn’t know about it. But Kevin Feige did tell me,
like, a week out, before it. He’s like, “Oh, oh, hey –”
-“Oh, by the way –” -“You’re an alien.”
[ Laughter ] -“You’ve been playing an alien
the whole movie.” -It feels…
-“Congrats.” -…like there’s
a big master plan. And if there is, I’m — I’m —
I don’t know about it. -You would come back?
-Of course. -Yeah, they’re fun to do, right?
-They’re a blast. They’re an absolute blast.

Jimmy kinda looks like the guy who played Ted Mosby in the movie that was based on T-Mos' life with what's her name..

Dustin Kirkendall · November 21, 2019 at 4:25 am

Theyungcity23 · November 21, 2019 at 2:24 pm

Hasn't she played Maria Hill along side Spider-man in the Avengers movies? How is she also an alien character?

Icecold Water · November 21, 2019 at 2:45 pm

Still Robin for me Lol

Gringo · November 21, 2019 at 2:55 pm

This’s crazy. (Only HIMYM fans)You’re probably not gonna believe me. But I have 3 daughters n the middle one I noticed a resemblance with Robin back like 8 yrs ago. Now she’s almost 15 n wow it’s crazy. I’m always curious as to how ppl that are not related by DNA can have similar “DNA” looks? I mean, cus facial features are decided in the DNA no? Ugh I wish I was a smart scientist

Brave Fart · November 21, 2019 at 3:10 pm

Robin, you're an alien. You don't age.

Hoopbaby 07 · November 21, 2019 at 10:38 pm

Rhick · November 21, 2019 at 10:47 pm

GoFckUrself · November 21, 2019 at 11:10 pm

I wonder if a quiet talker made her wear that shirt aswell.

Waa hh · November 21, 2019 at 11:48 pm

She looks like an adult version of Millie Bobby Brown

HockeyDay · November 22, 2019 at 12:56 am

That's when they start to talk about the title of the video.

Christian Unger · November 22, 2019 at 6:26 am

Okay, Agent Hill was impersonated by an alien and Fury’s been in space for ages. Where’s the actual Maria Hill been all this time?

notcoolatall · November 22, 2019 at 6:39 am

Urgen Tamang · November 23, 2019 at 1:31 am

Crikeys57 · November 23, 2019 at 1:42 am

She must have known something was up when she called Nick Fury, Nick instead of just Fury.

Samuel HerMan · November 23, 2019 at 3:34 am


Creatip · November 23, 2019 at 5:16 am

Oh so that's the backstory of the cake. I was wondering who is this T. Cruise chap that kept sending me cakes for the last 5 years….

Richard Wales · November 23, 2019 at 12:22 pm

Big fan of Robin. Hi from Australia.

david c smith · November 23, 2019 at 1:14 pm

Maybe she should have the script first?

Yunus Emre Aydın · November 23, 2019 at 2:11 pm

Lets go to mall

Nehir Akın · November 23, 2019 at 5:14 pm

Kyle Banks · November 24, 2019 at 12:08 am

Christine Remo · November 24, 2019 at 11:11 am

Nobody wants you here Patrice

Shahriar Mahmud sakib · November 24, 2019 at 2:09 pm

thats why you're Robin, not Batman

Michael McChesney · November 24, 2019 at 2:18 pm

I think that particular twist was planned in that Maria Hill repeatedly calls Sam "Everyone Calls Me Fury" Jackson "Nick." Given that everyone calling him Fury was a significant plot point in Captain Marvel, I'd think Sam Jackson would have pointed out the error if it hadn't been intentional. Then again maybe they shot the whole movie, then saw Captain Marvel and figured the easiest way to fix it was to turn them into Skrulls.

Xingrui Yang · November 24, 2019 at 4:12 pm

this is a terrible interview, another Jimmy is much better than this one… he is wasting his guest.

just go · November 25, 2019 at 8:35 am

I am in here because of Robin in How i met your mother. Love her so😍

Dhimas Tri Prastyo · November 25, 2019 at 2:52 pm

Maria Hill is not an alien, maybe the real Maria is on the space base just like Fury does

Gamechain · November 25, 2019 at 5:32 pm

Marvel is so strict about the script…every actor cant speak about it and when they do they feel so relief

Andy Marcos · November 25, 2019 at 11:00 pm

We need more Maria Hill in the MCU

Jimmy Doan · November 26, 2019 at 1:34 am

Sometimes I miss the mall…

Darcy Jones · November 26, 2019 at 8:31 am

Yeah well she’s probably from one of those weirdo families no divorce, huh.

I knew it I knew it just read despite being Canadian Trudeau made non feminist illegal, she writes she feels ‘natural’ role of women wife and mother and she has MALE spouse and 2 failed abortions(daughters)
At least the hubby is American but seriously what a feminist failure ewwwwewee. Triggered!!!

Frank Styles · November 26, 2019 at 7:52 pm


Julio Jaquez · November 27, 2019 at 10:57 pm

She's soooooooo HOT
Tough woman
Etc etc etc …. I love her!!
