In my backyard while his mother was in the driveway
04:47

It was on an island.
05:06
[Nicole] Lynn, how do you know all this?
05:07
How old? That's like--
05:08
I was quite young.
05:10

05:18
[Charlize] Did you get your period in the water?
05:19
I didn't.
05:21
[women laughing]
05:23
That's what happens in the movie.
05:23
Does that happen?
05:24
Okay, great.
05:25
[Charlize] It's a coming of age story, Nicole.
05:26
[Nicole] Oh my god, you're so right.
05:28
Yes. It's flooding back to me.
05:30
Yes.
05:31
[Lynn] Which one of you had a red carpet outfit
05:33
that was shall we say, many colors?
05:37
I don't know.
05:38
Was it me?
05:38
You wore a clown suit? Did you ever
05:39
go to the Logies?
05:41
Did you ever Australian TV? Oh no.
05:42
I went to the Logies.
05:43
I wore something questionable the first time I went.
05:46
I wore something outrageous. Please don't Google it.
05:48
Nobody Google what I wore to the Logies.
05:51
Don't even bring it up, cut that, Lynn.
05:51
What is a Logie, by the way?
05:53
Like a loogie?
05:54
What did you wear to the Logies?
05:56
I wore this outrageous dress that was like
05:59
tiered colors and really short at the front
06:01
and really long at the back.
06:02
Mine was really short all around.
06:03
Yeah, just very shiny and just,
06:05
I loved it at the time though, no regrets.
06:08
The Logies are the Australian version of the Emmys.
06:11
Yep. They should change the name.
06:13
I like it. I'm just saying
06:15
Logies is like loogies.
06:16
What's a loogie? We don't say,
06:18
we don't say loogie in Australia.
06:19
You know when you go like that?
06:20
That's a loogie.
06:21
[Lynn] Charlize, what was your
06:22
first red carpet outfit?
06:24
I remember it very vividly.
06:27
It was for Two Days in the Valley,
06:29
and Armani sent me a little slip
06:32
and it was really sweet 'cause I had never had
06:34
anybody send me anything.
06:36
It was black, it was like a little slip
06:37
with, I think, white lace that I've--
06:39
So chic, I was not chic. I definitely
06:40
was like, well, I didn't pick it.
06:43
He has taste, guys.
06:44
Mr. Armani, not that he picked it himself, I'm sure.
06:46
Oh, you are special.
06:47
You got sent something from Armani.
06:49
I had to-- I know, and by the way,
06:50
at that age-- I had to pay for something
06:52
to be made. Yeah, same.
06:52
And it was not good and then I spent so much money
06:55
that I had to wear it. I definitely,
06:56
I felt very special, for sure.
06:58
I did not take it for granted.
06:59
And then we got into the limo
07:00
and my stupid friends got super excited
07:03
and they were try to open a bottle of champagne,
07:04
and the whole thing exploded all over me.
07:08
And I just remember I was on the red carpet
07:10
and my thighs were sticking together as I was walking
07:13
'cause I was like covered in champagne
07:16
and it just dried on my skin.
07:17
That's really sweet.
07:18
[Lynn] What's the best gift you've ever received?
07:20
My friends threw me a birthday party last year.
07:23
That was pretty fucking epic.
07:26
[women laughing]
07:27
And it went on for a long time.
07:30
It was so cool and I felt so loved.
07:33
And I could literally choke up right now.
07:35
[Lynn] You consider that a gift?
07:37
Well, yeah, they paid for it.
07:39
[women laughing]
07:40
I think that makes it a gift.
07:41
Gift of the giant party.
07:44
[Nicole] Party's don't come free. That's expensive.
07:45
Probably the best gift someone gave me,
07:47
my cousin made like a scrapbook for me
07:50
and it was very sentimental. I got a party.
07:55
I win.
07:57
Mine was better.
07:59
Well, the non-cook.
08:02
When I got married, I was given a book of all
08:07
the favorite recipes like from my whole family.
08:10
Each recipe had some story attached to it.
08:12
Keith's mother put in-- And then you never cooked
08:14
any of them.
08:15
I have cooked the chocolate pudding from it.
08:18
Then you can cook.
08:19
I cooked it for Keith with my daughter Faith,
08:22
and I'm telling you, he was so thrilled
08:26
because it was the pudding he ate when he was a child.
08:28
I did get this diamond ring, too.
08:30
[women laughing]
08:32
And some caviar-- No.
08:34
This was after 10 years of marriage.
