Laura Dern is known for being an extremely expressive actress, gesturing a lot with her hands while speaking. When she stopped by The Late Late Show this week, James Corden brought up her reputation as a hand-talker and challenged her to not move her hands while telling a story.
Instead, she allowed fellow guest Zach Galifianakis to sit behind her, place his arms under hers, and mimic her hand movements. Fans of improvisational comedy know this as the Helping Hands game.
Zach nailed it. In fact, it worked out so well, they did it again when Laura started discussing her upcoming roles in the Star Wars series and reboot of Twin Peaks.
Watch The Late Late Show weeknights at 12:37am/11:37pm c on CBS and stream full episodes on CBS All Access.
