Air Date: 03/08/17
Christopher Meloni shares a heartfelt story about losing his mom while filming the upcoming movie "Snatched," and how co-stars Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer offered their own unique styles of support. "We were shooting in Hawaii...I went back east and unfortunately my mother got ill...I had to leave her bedside, flew, by the time I landed, she passed. No one knew, except for the producers and the director...(I) do the whole day, we have one more shot to do...Goldie Hawn and I start talking...I said...'my mother passed,' oh, she grabs me, she hugs me tight...I needed that moment... and then Amy, Amy, she goes, 'Wait, what did you just say?' I said, 'Well, you know, my mother passed,' she goes 'Oh, that's terrible, hold on one second.' (while she fakes taking a phone call)...I knew she was joking...she needed to diffuse all that obvious emotion...later she goes, "You know I was kidding, right?"
