Awkwafina’s grandmother’s time is valuable.
Hot off her big Golden Globes win, the actress is on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday to talk about her movie “The Farewell” and more.
Awkwafina said that her grandmother was very excited about her appearing on the show because she loves DeGeneres.
She also revealed that her grandmother actually walked out of the room the first time Awkwafina showed her a screener of “The Farewell”.
“She was like, ‘I gotta cook,'” Awkwafina recalled.
But then Awkwafina told the story on TV, which successfully guilted her grandmother into watching all of her movies from here on out.
