>> Well, I don't know. I just haven't done it for so long. You know, it's like when you're -- you know, when you're on camera, it's like things get cut and edited and, you know, put together. But that's -- it's that -- I think it will give me a lot of confidence to, kind of, come back to the --

>> Jay: Like, when you're on stage as an actor -- like, I know somf1 of look at faces, but you try not to make eye contact, 'cause it throws yooff. Is it the same thing when doing "hamlet" or something?

>> Yeah, you seriously have the lights so bright, though. In stand-up, I guess, it's like faces, but you know, on stage, the lights are so bright. But I mean, literally, I haven't been on stage for ten years, since I left drama school.

>> Jay: Oh, it's much worse now. 'Cause this is what you get now. This is what you get in the theater now. "Yeah, I'm watching him now! He's good!"

>> Jay: Now, but in your contract -- I mean, you have these three movies, and they're allowed to cross the street alone." Or "you can't walk up a flight of stairs." I mean, don't they have all it's fny. I was -- well, in "lord of the rings," we were filming --e had one of our locations down in queenstown. And queenstown is like the there. And we'd had this letter before saying, you know, basically do nothing.

>> Jay: Right. Rafting, no -- and there's all this crazy stuff that you can do there. And there was this bungee jper at the top of the town, and he was just screaming my

>> Jay: Really?

>> And I'm crazy for that. So, and I'd broken my back, you and I was like -- so I went up think I could do this? And you know, I broke my back." And he goes, "well, I mean, what else have you been doing I'm making a movie, so I'm horse riding."

[ Lauger ]

[ Laughter ]

>> Jay: So, why did you buy it? Why did you get it?

>> 'Cause I -- 'cause it'she first step to me taking it out of the box.

>> Jay: Taking it out of the box.

[ Laughter ] 'Cause I checked something online. And you're, like, the second
