Elle Magazine interview


Meyers gives interview to Elle about what he learned about marriage from his parents.

Half the time parents are showing you how to do it, and then the other half they’re showing you the things you should never do. My mother is an incredibly beautiful woman who has laughed at every single thing my father’s ever said. At a young age, my brother and I understood that if you can make girls laugh, you can punch well above your weight class.

Seth Meyers interview

Seacrest interviews Meyers during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Miley Cyrus.

She is an entertainer and anyone who does not find what she’s been doing wildly entertaining, I don’t know what you’re looking for. She was great when we she came here (before). She’s totally game. She’s a sweetheart and we’re more than happy to have her back. She was more than happy to poke fun at herself, so we are looking forward to doing that again.

Seth Meyers interview


Seacrest interviews Meyers during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about why he’s not nervous to host Late Night With Seth Meyers. 

I’m used to doing [“Weekend Update” on SNL] live, but I’m not used to doing this much of it. [With] ‘Weekend Update,’ you’re live at a desk 15 minutes a week and now it’s the bigger thing cause you know it’s live-ish in front of real people, but I think SNL is as good of training as possible.

Daniel Radcliffe interview

InterviewTV Appearance

Radcliffe returns as a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers to discuss What If. He also talks about playing a regular human for the first time, eating Elvis Presley’s favorite sandwiches, doing a cameo in a Judd Apatow movie, and working on the second season of his television show, Young Doctor’s Notebook.

That’s a show that people over here may not be as aware of. It was something we did in England, it’s myself and Jon Hamm and we play the same doctor at different ages in his life. We do have scenes together as well because he’s sort of walking through his own flashback, giving advice to his younger self.

Robert Pattinson interview

InterviewTV Appearance

Pattinson guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote his new film, The Rover. He shares his childhood experiences growing up with two older sisters, his friendship with hookers, and his secret desire to be a rapper.

100 percent, I still kind of do. My rap name was Big Tub. I was very paranoid about my weight. I got quite sick in the last couple of days and I’m so excited about it. Next week I’m going to be so skinny!

Ricky Gervais interview

InterviewTV Appearance

Gervais guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk about the differences between awards show in the UK and the US. He also jokingly explains why he is upset with Louis C.K., whom he calls a “big, sweaty slob”.

I discovered that big, sweaty slob. I’ve done everything for him, haven’t I? I was even in his show. I just see his freckly ass and everything, and he’s never thanked me. And now, he’s trying to take my award. This is dreadful.

Joan Rivers interview

InterviewTV Appearance

Rivers guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote her new book, Diary of a Mad Diva. She also talks about Anne Frank, her pregnancy struggles with her daughter Melissa, and being a grandmother.

He calls me “Nana Newface”, which I think is funny. What I do do, I take him every year to a summer school because the summer schools here in L.A. are pfft. We go to Grandma Week. Last year, we did 13 colonies, this year we did Italy and it’s amazing.

Michael Fassbender interview

InterviewTV Appearance

Fassbender guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote Frank. He also talks about riding motorcycles, doing musicals, and wearing a mask in the movie.

That’s me, actually. It makes you sort of more mischievous, an anarchic streak that came out. But the reason that the character wears the mask is because he’s suffering from mental health issues, so at an early age, his father makes him this mask and never really takes it off because he feels safe in that sort of insular world inside his head.

Mickey Rourke interview

InterviewTV Appearance

Rourke guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. He also talks about dealing with annoying paparazzi, his dislike of the outcome of Iron Man 2, and his admiration for Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez.

I’m a Robert Rodriguez/Frank Miller fan. Once I did a movie for Marvel and they cut the whole f*ckin’ thing out. When you work with Robert, he knows what he wants. I do a lot of research – work on the character a lot – so when you bring it to the table it’s disappointing when they cut stuff out. Frank’s on the set and he puts his two cents in. It’s great because you got two guys who are very enthusiastic who know exactly what they want. If I make an adjustment and they say ‘Well why don’t you try this?’ It’s usually a better idea than what I came up with.

Taylor Swift interview


Swift guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers to announce her live stream performance on Yahoo. She also shares a story about crashing a fan’s bridal shower, her extraordinarily fresh look after a gym workout, and her lively dancing during award shows.

I like to bring a change of clothes. Also, you know, I think New York is one of those cities that feels worth dressing up for, if that makes any sense. I just feel like when I walk out onto the sidewalk in New York, I have to just try a little harder. But it’s not like an extra hour in the gym. I read that somewhere and I was like, ‘That’s ridiculous.’

Seth Meyers interview


Seacrest interviews Meyers during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him on hosting the Emmy Awards show.

It’s coming to together well. We’re starting to lock in our ideas and write our jokes and we’re really looking forward to it. For someone like me who can’t sing or dance, the open is pretty much where we feel as though I can make the biggest impact, so that’s the biggest part for us: To have a strong monologue and just write a ton of jokes.

Seth Meyers interview

Seacrest interviews Meyers during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about performing standup in Las Vegas.

I’m really excited. It’s the first time I’ve performed at the Cosmopolitan, but I’ve done Vegas a bunch. It’s a great city to do standup in. People are in a very good mood, especially if you get them early enough in the night. It’s an 8 o’clock show, so it’s before people start making terrible mistakes in Vegas. I like to be the fresh snow before they run their evenings off the side of the road.

Late Night with Seth Meyers interview


Cruz gives an interview to Meyers on Late Night with Seth Meyers, talking about his views on gay marriage.

For over 200 years, marriage has been a question for the states. Now, personally I believe in traditional marriage between one man and one woman. But if you want to change the marriage laws, the way to do it constitutionally, is convince your fellow citizens to go to the state legislator and change it. It shouldn’t be the federal government or unelected judges imposing their own definition of marriage. We should, instead, respect our constitutional system.

On his extended Obamacare filibuster:

It actually went fabulously, because right now, Obamacare has 37 percent approval rating and as a result of Obamacare, Harry Reid and the Democrats lost the senate, and in 2016, I think we’re gonna see a very different election result.
