Leah Remini leads an exciting life these days.
The “Second Act” star is on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Thursday and has plenty of stories to tell, from the way her daughter refuses to let anyone touch her, “or talking to her, apparently,” to their trip to Paris where her fear of heights kicked in big time up the Eiffel Tower.
Remini also talks about taking her mom to the Chippendales revue in Las Vegas, explaining that they were lucky they didn’t get sued.
“Because my mother, you know, she’s very handsy,” the actress explains, describing how her mom would touch the performers and actually grab their crotches. “She had a great time.”
The 48-year-old then shares what it was like to work with her friend Jennifer Lopez on their film “Second Act”, including a scene in which she slaps Lopez only to get slapped right back.
“She cracked me so hard,” Remini says.
DeGeneres also gets Remini to play a game of “One and Done” in which they each have to give a clue to a secret word the other must guess.
Of course, this being “Ellen”, things aren’t so simple. It turns out the host has the whole thing set up to give Remini a big fright.
