00:00
Quieter, please.
00:02
[Interviewer] Okay, Jake.
00:03
What?
00:04
[Interviewer] Can you introduce yourself?
00:05
Sorry, what?
00:06
[Interviewer] Can you introduce yourself?
00:07
Sorry, what?
00:09
I'm Jake ASMR Gyllenhaal.
00:12
Hi, my name's Margot Robbie.
00:14
It's me, Aubrey.
00:18
Plaza.
00:19
I'm Kate Hudson.
00:20
Hi, everyone, I am Lucy Hale.
00:23
Hi, I'm Ashley Graham.
00:25
I'm Melissa Benoist.
00:26
I am Salma Hayek.
00:28
Hi, I'm Emily Ratajakowski.
00:29
My name is Gal and we're doing an ASMR interview
00:35
for W Magazine.
00:37
[Interviewer] What have you been doing today?
00:39
I woke up and I had no text messages
00:42
'cause I have no friends and,
00:45
and then I looked at my emails and, sure enough,
00:48
they were empty and then I
00:52
sort of sat there alone for a while.
00:57
And then I came here to be loved, yeah.
00:59
I'm from Australia, the Gold Coast, in Queensland.
01:03
I love the ocean, obviously.
01:07
I love my family, they're an Australian thing,
01:09
so I can say that.
01:11
I love Vegemite.
01:12
(laughs)
01:15
I definitely hated Vegemite as a child.
01:17
Everyone does.
01:18
It would be super weird if you didn't.
01:21
But it is an acquired taste.
01:23
This is what it sounds like.
01:26
(scraping)
01:29
That's the sound of my childhood.
01:37
Take it slow, maybe add a slice of cheese with it.
01:40
It can be a lot just on its own.
01:43
So I am a self-proclaimed body activist.
01:47
I actually talk to young girls about loving the skin
01:51
that they're in and I talk about things like cellulite.
01:57
Some people have a really hard time
01:58
actually saying the world cellulite,
02:00
but I actually don't mind saying it.
02:02
In fact, I don't even mind posting it on Instagram
02:05
and not retouching it out.
02:07
You should try it some time.
02:08
There's a bunch of Starbursts right in front of me
02:10
and I freaking love Starburst.
02:13
I like to put combinations in my mouth.
02:17
(crinkling)
02:23
(chewing)
02:26
My sister hates it when I chew with my mouth open.
02:30
She actually wants to kill me.
02:32
(chewing)
02:35
Oh, sorry.
02:36
(laughs)
02:37
I really have some interesting props and I want to show you.
02:40
(fizzing)
02:42
What some of my favorite sounds are,
02:44
it might get a little messy.
02:46
(foaming)
02:47
Have you ever opened up a York Peppermint Patty?
02:52
(rustling)
02:57
Wait for it.
02:59
Wait for it.
03:03
Yes.
03:05
In Halloween, Michael Meyers escapes
03:07
from a mental institution and kills everyone
03:11
that he encounters all on Halloween night.
03:14
And this is the sound of stabbing a pumpkin.
03:18
This is a big knife, okay.
03:21
(laughing)
03:24
(slicing)
03:27
This is a tostada.
03:29
It's a tortilla that has been toasted.
03:32
It's made out of corn.
03:34
The sound of the bag opening
03:37
reminds me of some people in the theater.
03:40
(crinkling)
03:45
(crunching)
03:51
I wish it had some guacamole.
03:58
They're gluten free, it's just corn.
04:02
(crunching)
04:05
I'm from Israel.
04:07
I do have favorite Israeli snacks.
04:11
I love Bamba, I love Bissli, I like Ifligrial.
04:18
Would love to try some Bamba.
04:21
So, here we have a Bamba.
04:24
Bamba is an Israeli snack.
04:25
It's like peanut butter,
04:29
yeah, peanut butter snack.
04:31
(crinkling)
04:38
You can see.
04:41
This is a Bamba.
04:47
(crunching)
04:54
And here we have chocolate coins for Hanukah.
04:58
You can see the menorah.
05:03
(crinkling)
05:05
I'll give you some attention.
05:08
Ta-da.
05:10
You see.
05:15
(crunching)
05:19
Very cheap chocolate.
05:22
I've decided to bring in some fabrics.
05:24
Some that are not my clothing.
05:28
Like, who doesn't want to know what sequins sound like?
05:31
(rustling)
05:37
This one feels a little more fun and flimsy.
05:41
This feels more like a party.
05:43
Check this out.
05:44
(rustling)
05:55
I've always wanted to know what mesh, what mesh sounds like.
06:00
(rustling)
06:03
This is what it sounds like when we snap our pants.
06:12
I love this brogan.
06:14
It's got mesh detail.
06:15
This one is really nice and thin.
06:18
It feels nice and thin and dries really fast
06:21
for those of you who run and like to do hot yoga,
06:24
hot yoga, hot yoga, hot yoga.
06:27
When you hear, this is leather.
06:30
Okay?
06:32
It's like leather and lace.
06:35
I don't know about you,
06:37
but I'm reminded of a song by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley.
06:42
It's one of my favorite songs of all time.
06:45
This is my Leather and Lace, my love to Leather and Lace.
06:52
I love you Stevie.
06:55
I kinda wanna go back to the sparkles.
06:57
(splashing)
07:03
Okay.
07:04
I like to dance.
07:07
Dancing is fun.
07:08
I like hot yoga.
07:12
I like hot power yoga.
07:15
I also like not everything, I like not doing everything.
07:19
Just chill out and do what feels right for my body.
07:24
Okay, let's get back to waist belts.
07:27
(rustling)
07:30
That's the sound of something kinda awesome.
07:38
(clipping)
07:41
Oh, wait a minute, things just got saucy in here.
07:44
I'm wearing a trench coat by the Kooples.
07:47
It's made out of something shiny that makes a lot of noise.
07:51
(rustling)
07:53
(crunching)
07:54
That's a crazy sound.
08:11
(crinkling)
08:19
The Kooples gave me the opportunity
08:21
to make a beautiful bag that I'm obsessed with
08:24
and I want to wear all the time.
08:27
This is the Emily bag by the Kooples.
08:30
This is a very structured bag.
08:34
You can squish it.
08:39
You can click this open.
08:45
It has many different compartments.
08:49
This is actually one of my favorite prints.
08:53
(rustling)
08:57
The leather has a really good texture, it's made in Italy,
09:00
in a very small factory.
09:05
It's very chic.
09:07
I've stolen some jewelry from the fashion stylists
09:10
and we're gonna play with it.
09:12
(jingling)
09:14
Ooh, that's a loud one.
09:20
That sounds great.
09:22
(clinging)
09:30
(clattering)
09:41
Taking these ones home.
09:43
I discovered a love for fashion
09:45
when I was probably in third grade
09:48
and I would make drawings of all my
09:50
potential wedding dresses for my third grade teacher.
09:53
I've got these really giant fabric cutters.
09:59
I thought it would be interesting to hear
10:01
what it sounds like to cut fabrics.
10:07
This is actually something that brings me back to
10:13
my childhood.
10:15
I'm gonna turn these jeans into shorts.
10:22
I don't know if you can hear,
10:24
but my jeans are screaming right now.
10:28
(scoffs)
10:31
(rustling)
10:42
This is so satisfying.
10:53
(rustling)
10:56
The TV show Parks and Recreation.
11:04
The funny thing about Parks and Recreation is
11:12
that I didn't audition for that show.
11:15
I had a meeting with the creators of the show and
11:22
I guess in that meeting, I was so weird
11:27
that they decided to create the character for me.
11:32
So, in the original pilot episode of Parks and Recreation,
11:37
the character of April was actually named Aubrey.
11:42
Aubrey.
11:44
Aubrey.
11:46
Aubrey.
11:48
But, of course, they had to change it
11:50
when it went on television to April.
11:55
April.
11:56
April.
11:59
April.
12:03
And,
12:07
I don't know what to say about it.
12:11
I definitely feel like
12:14
that character is a big part of me.
12:19
I am April and April is me.
12:23
But it's a heightened version of me, so,
12:29
it feels very close to my heart.
12:34
But also, I'm much more than that.
12:41
I was on that show for seven seasons.
12:45
I don't know why, but
12:48
that show
12:50
has a kind of psychic, beautiful love energy radiating
12:57
out of it because we all loved each other so much
13:01
and you can tell when you watch it.
13:03
And I think that the show kind of reminds audiences that
13:09
comedy doesn't have to be mean-spirited.
13:13
It can come from love.
13:16
Except we can all still hate Jerry.
13:20
Because Jerry sucks.
13:24
Jerry deserves to die.
13:28
I play Supergirl on the CW series Supergirl.
13:32
And I'm gonna walk you through some of the
13:35
sounds of DC heroes.
13:37
Supergirl, she is, her Kryptonian name is Kara Zor-El
13:44
and some of her powers are heat vision,
13:48
microscopic vision, she has x-ray vision,
13:51
she has superhuman strength, she's invulnerable,
13:55
she's the Girl of Steel.
13:57
Oh, she can fly, of course.
13:59
One of my favorite powers she has is freeze breath,
14:03
which I'm going to do for you in a whisper.
14:07
(blowing)
14:14
We also have Aquaman in the DC League of Heroes.
14:20
He, of course, can breathe underwater
14:24
and he can talk to the fish.
14:27
I'm gonna breathe underwater
14:29
'cause that's something I can do.
14:32
(bubbling)
14:38
Sort of sounds like a hot tub.
14:40
So, heroes wouldn't be heroes
14:42
without villains on the opposite side.
14:45
One of them is Catwoman, or Selina Kyle.
14:49
She's often doing the wrong thing for the right reason,
14:53
which is why we love her.
14:54
The sound of her claws scratching a cat post,
14:59
'cause I'm sure she does that
15:00
in the privacy of her own home.
15:06
Kind of like these gloves, too.
15:17
(rustling)
15:19
(hissing)
15:28
Now I can't get 'em off.
15:31
In the classic thriller House of Wax,
15:34
the owner of a wax museum takes the bodies of his victims
15:38
and turns them into wax figures.
15:40
So this is the sound of a wax candle being lit.
15:46
(rustling)
15:52
I'm typically horrible at matches,
15:53
I'm surprised I did that in one try.
15:57
(blowing)
16:00
So, in Psycho, the movie explores a
16:04
motel clerk's strange relationship with his mother.
16:07
And this is the sound of Norman brushing his mother's hair.
16:14
A boy's best friend is his mother.
16:16
(rustling)
16:19
It's so weird.
16:28
In The Blair Witch Project,
16:31
a group of students start disappearing in the woods
16:34
and all that's left of them is the footage on their camera
16:38
and this is the sound of rustling leaves
16:41
and breaking twigs.
16:43
(rustling)
16:50
(snapping)
16:59
Once in this lifetime, I got to be Frida Kahlo.
17:04
She was a Mexican surrealist artist.
17:09
And she said she painted her pain,
17:12
but she painted it with so much joy
17:16
because it's full of colors, her heart.
17:20
(rustling)
17:46
Those are the steps of the ghost of Frida.
17:49
(footsteps falling)
17:49
Who keeps haunting me.
17:53
(splashing)
18:02
I moved to the United States when I was 20 years old.
18:05
I love it.
18:06
I got a job pretty quickly
18:08
and I got to go to New York for the first time
18:11
and I was working on a show called Pan Am,
18:13
which is about flight attendants in the '60s.
18:15
This is an authentic seatbelt from 1963,
18:19
when the show was set.
18:20
You can tell that this is proper vintage.
18:24
It's not.
18:25
Here's the sound of the seatbelt.
18:28
(clinking)
18:29
Wait for the satisfying bit.
18:32
(clinking)
18:33
(rustling)
18:35
Sexy.
18:37
Hairspray was actually a big part of Pan Am.
18:40
This is what the sound of the '60s is.
18:43
(whooshing)
18:45
Also satisfying.
18:48
The smell is really bringing back memories.
18:50
My first American film, which was The Wolf of Wall Street.
18:54
I played Naomi and she is the wife of stockbroker
18:59
Jordan Belfort, who is played Leonardo DiCaprio.
19:03
She was wickedly fun to play.
19:05
Very different from myself.
19:07
This is what it sounds like
19:08
when Naomi's walking towards you.
19:11
(knocking)
19:13
That sounds a little more ominous
19:14
than she probably sounds coming towards you,
19:16
but you get the idea.
19:18
(knocking)
19:21
The easiest day of shooting I ever did was
19:24
my little cameo role in The Big Short
19:26
where for, literally, I did half a day of shooting
19:28
in a mansion in Malibu and I got to sit in a bathtub.
19:32
Adam McKay actually gave me real champagne,
19:35
not just any champagne, but 20 year old Dom Pérignon.
19:38
I'm gonna replicate it.
19:41
(crinkling)
19:46
This bit's less exciting, hold on.
19:48
It gets to the good bit.
19:51
(popping)
19:53
That's probably my favorite sound
19:54
in the whole world, actually.
19:55
(clinking)
19:59
(fizzing)
20:03
Fancy.
20:07
(clanging)
20:09
And to take my favorite line to date, now off.
20:16
(blowing)
20:17
(rustling)
20:28
(rustling)
20:30
Nuah.
20:32
It means rest.
20:33
My family and I play a game of cards.
20:37
We call it continental, but it's not really continental.
20:42
(rustling)
20:45
If my career goes bad, I can always be a dealer in Vegas,
20:51
'cause I'm too old to be a dance girl or something.
20:55
(rustling)
20:59
There.
21:01
That didn't go well, but I got the joker.
21:04
This is a still camera.
21:06
It looks like it actually does still use film.
21:09
A film camera.
21:11
Like this.
21:12
(clicking)
21:15
Super slow shutter.
21:17
I mean, I'm just a pawn in this game.
21:19
(clicking)
21:22
(knocking)
21:28
I really don't know how to do any woodworking.
21:30
I just like building tables.
21:35
I feel like I should be singing opera with this right now.
21:39
(humming)
21:45
I'm trying out for American Idol,
21:46
you guys just don't know about it yet.
21:49
To represent April Ludgate, I will now use the sounds
21:55
of texting on my phone.
21:59
My personal phone.
22:00
I'd just like to first show you that
22:03
I have two stickers on my phone.
22:08
One says hot old guy.
22:15
And one's a picture of a fox 'cause I like foxes.
22:21
Okay, now we text.
22:25
I'll send a text to...
22:29
(keyboard clicking)
22:33
How about we send a text to Jerry himself?
22:41
I'm typing in Jim.
22:44
Jim O'Heir.
22:49
(keyboard clicking)
22:51
Hi, Jim.
22:54
This is
22:57
you know who.
23:04
I'm doing a video
23:08
for W Magazine
23:14
about how much Jerry sucks.
23:23
What do you think of that?
23:29
Question mark, question mark, exclamation point, send.
23:34
(dinging)
23:35
Let's see what he says.
23:39
(keyboard clicking) (phone dinging)
23:44
L-O-L.
23:46
I don't believe you'll be able to come up
23:48
with anything negative to say about Jerry.
23:51
If you can, go for it.
23:54
Smiley face.
23:58
What a dumbass.
24:01
He really sucks.
24:06
I'm deleting him from my phone.
24:10
(keyboard clicking)
24:11
Ha ha ha.
24:13
You suck.
24:18
(dinging)
24:21
This is bubble wrap.
24:26
(popping)
24:34
(popping)
24:57
Rah.
24:59
(coughing)
25:00
When I just coughed, did it sound like the world was,
25:04
like, exploding?
