Scott Speedman is spilling the tea during his first appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”.
Joining Ellen DeGeneres in the hot seat on Tuesday, the 41-year-old “Animal Kingdom” star reveals he was once invited to the television host’s house by her former assistants in 1996 and swam in her pool intoxicated while she wasn’t home.
“It was the first time I’d ever been to L.A.,” Speedman recalls. “I got flown in for 24 hours. I got off the plane, did a screen test, met up with a bunch of crazy Canadians.”
“We drank a little too much and at some point, someone was like, ‘Hey, we’re going to Ellen’s house to swim in her pool,'” he adds. “So, I ended up crashing your pool drunkenly until about 4 a.m., and you weren’t there.”
Speedman also reveals his unique plans to curb his coffee addiction. “I’ve tried to quit 15 times and it hasn’t worked,” he says. “So, when I’m done shooting the show right now, I’m going to go up to Big Sur. I rented a cabin for 10 days by myself.”
