Melissa McCarthy: Angelina Jolie Is So Beautiful

Melissa McCarthy makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday (January 26).

The 41-year-old Bridesmaids actress, who was recently nominated for an Oscar, chatted with Ellen about attending the Golden Globe Awards for the first time.

On meeting Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: “So I’m already in some weird altered state talking to Brad and Angelina. They’re so nice and chatty and really bubbly. Finally, I got a little weird and I was like you have to stop for a minute because it’s a lot visually to take in. I said that to them. They just kind of laughed. I said, no really. It is a lot visually to take in. She’s like weirdly glowing. She’s so beautiful. He’s kind of cute too. And then I was like ok. I’m sorry. I needed to like regroup because they’re kind of a lot.”

On meeting Meryl Streep: “As I’m talking to them somebody is pulling on my hand and I hear Melissa, Melissa. And I turned around and she said, Hi, I’m Meryl. Literally like my brain snapped in two. And then I really didn’t know what to say. I just kept going ‘Oh, my god. You’re Meryl Streep.’ And she was chatting like a normal human being. And I said, ‘oh my god. I’m sorry.’ I thought over the years so many things if I ever got to meet you what I would say. This is not it. And, she goes ‘Oh my god. Don’t even worry about it.’ For some reason I felt I need to bookend it with and repeat. ‘Oh my god. You’re Meryl Streep.’”

Seal Opens Up About Heidi Klum Divorce on 'Ellen'

Seal waves hello to the audience while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Tuesday (January 24).

“I think we were shocked. You go into these things with the greatest intentions when you say ‘I do’ and you say ’til death do us part.’ Those vows hold value. They are not just words… You try and you work through it and the thing that you quickly realize when you are married and you become a parent you do the best that you can. It makes you actually appreciate your parents a lot more. The thing that I’m most proud about this great woman who married (and I really do mean that from the bottom of my heart), is that together she has given me four incredible gifts…four beautiful children [Leni, Henry, Johan, and Lou]. She still, in my opinion, the most wonderful woman in the world. I think our priority was to remain civil and do this thing with dignity. We still very much love each other,” the 48-year-old singer said to host Ellen about his recent divorce announcement from Heidi Klum. “To say that neither of us were grieving would be an out and out lie (and I don’t mind telling you that). I think the operative here is that we are civil to each other and we both have a tremendous amount of respect and love and we try and do this with as much dignity as we possibly can.”

Seal also commented on his wedding ring, which he still wore on his finger.

“Yes, I am still wearing my ring. I think it’s just pretty much a token of how I feel about this woman. We have eight years. Eight wonderful years together. Just because we have decided to separate doesn’t necessarily mean you take off your ring and you’re no longer connected to that person. We will be connected in many ways ‘til the rest of our lives…. though our children and also through this tremendous admiration, respect and love that we have for each other,” Seal said.

“Will we wear the ring for the rest of our lives? Who knows? But right now it feels really comfortable on my hand so I have intentions of taking it off anytime soon.”

Charlize Theron: I'm Really Enjoying Being Single!

Charlize Theron makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing Wednesday (December 14).

The 36-year-old actress, wearing a Balenciaga dress, promoted her latest flick, Young Adult, and also opened up about being single – something she hasn’t been “since like [I was] 19.”

“I’ve been in two relationships. One was 10 years and one was three years. Just like back to back. When I talk about it, it’s not to get pity. It’s actually a nice experience for me because I haven’t experienced it,” Charlize told Ellen.

“I’m really enjoying it,” she added. “I think that I’m a bit of a creature that is definitely very comfortable in a relationship. That was my 20s and early 30s. I was never single and now all of a sudden, not that I’m painting the town red and dancing and clubbing, but I’m really enjoying being on my own.”
