Craig: OK tell me, there were no strippers Lauren: No. Craig: OK, that's good. Lauren: I don't think you were so drunk that... Lauren: I was probably focused, I was hosting... I was a little drunk that night. I was hosting, I apologize. Lauren: No, its ok, because what I thought was going to happen... I had a love connection at the TV Guide Awards, and you would have been so redeemed, ummm and then I could have come on and said Hey you were sort of cool, but then I met this guy.. and let me just tell you, don't get involved with a famous guy, because they don't call....they don't write... I had the most ... I had the most crazy, magnetic .... Craig: By the way, you're unloading a lot tonight. You are really unloading right now.

Lauren Graham and her Dad interviewed on SAG Awards 2002
SK: Lauren Graham is with us JA: We talked to her , she's out of her big white limo. Lauren: Can my dad say hi. We have family watching at home. SK: Sure. Lauren: This is Larry Graham, he's my dad. SK: Hello Larry. I like your shirt and tie Larry: She helped pick it out. He was concerned out it. See Steve has it too, its cool. How does feel being here tonight with your daughter. Larry: Well I think its great for her. You know, the peers recognizing her work, I think that is fabulous. SK: A dad's unbiased opinion. Larry: Absolutely. SK: And her work, in your opinion. Larry: Yes, the best actress in Hollywood. JA: Now I also heard earlier that she if she was feeling pressure and she said no, is that true. Larry: No she seems pretty calm today. Lauren: I was like, prompted up in the limo, I feel pressure in weird ways, I guess. Its always nerve-racking, but this one's really fun I think. SK: Have you been to many of these award type events before. Lauren: Not really, this was the first thing I was honored for last year, and it was such a big deal, and I was so scared, cause I didn't know what any of it was like. And since then I have grown to enjoy it more and more. SK: How did you draw the lucky straw to be her date this evening. Larry: Well she invited me, called me up, and said would you come out and be my date. Lauren: We had a photo shoot, we did a photo shoot together, for a magazine. So he was going to be here, anyway. I think its a really good thing for family to see, kind of the inside of what goes on, cause its looks the way it looks, but on the inside its a totally different experience. SK: One last question before we go, Larry Graham, Lauren Graham, are you named after him? Lauren: Yeah, Lauren.... Lawrence.
Craig: How are you doing?. Lauren: Good... Fine Thank you. How are you? Craig: So what's going on? Lauren: Oh, I'm back at my day job. Craig: Yeah, second season. Lauren: Yes it's the second season. Craig: You guys.... the critics love your show, The Gilmore Girls, on the WB, see how I remembered that. Lauren: What time is it on and what night is it? Craig: 8 pm Saturday night...... Lauren: no........no.......... Craig: Eight O'clock, monday through friday. Tuesday nights, right after....... Lauren: Ding, ding....... you had a cue card over here didn't you? Craig: No I don't have anything, is it Tuesday nights? Lauren: Yes. Its will be Tuesdays, it on Thursdays right now. It will be on Tuesdays. Craig: They were saying..... the critics like it.............They were saying you were snubbed, the Emmies snubbed you. Lauren: Ohh. I think they were saying the same thing about you. Craig: We were nominated...........(crowd cheers) .... Did you know, this is an unprecedented move, we were nominated and I said give our nomination to someone else, I'm not in it for the awards, I'm in it for the love of the job. Lauren: That's, umm, that's beautiful. Craig: Yeah. Lauren: So is this upsetting for you? Craig: No. Lauren: I feel this is an issue you're needing to work out. Craig: I could give.......Let me try to be clear....... I could give a rats ass about it. Lauren: Oh really! That's fair enough. Craig: This is fun. Lauren: You know it's weird because usually its other people tell you you've been snubbed, and then you feel bad. Craig: But it's nice, you do this show, you've only been on a year, and they say you should have been nominated. Lauren: And you have only been doing this show a year..... Craig: Couple years. Lauren: I know........ Craig: You trying to ... you doing one of these (Craig pulls on his leg) Lauren: No, No Craig: That's my job. Lauren: I worship you. Are you kidding. I have people out looking for you. You know that. Craig: Explain this. This scares me, because I usually don't interview stalkers. But explain. Go ahead, what do you got. I'm listening. Lauren: You know, last time I saw you, I had seen you a couple of times recently... Craig: What are you talking about? On the show here? Lauren: Last time on the show , when I was a guest on the show. Craig: You were good. Lauren: Thanks.....so were you.....It's like the coldest sex ever or some thing "You were good" "So were you" Craig: Ok go ahead. Lauren: I didn't mean to take it into a scary....... Craig: Where did I see you otherwise? Lauren: It was like events, you know like people do. Like I never do. Like I saw you at an award show, lets say. Craig: Did I say hi to you? Lauren: No, not really.....You know I took some amount of offense. Then I thought, this is like going to be my thing. Were like I will have a story, to tell you about you, every time I see you. Craig: Oh, I see. Lauren: It's because I'm a creative, imaginative person, that i do this. And I haven't seen you all summer, and I haven't seen you since the last time I was here. Craig: No, I don't go out much. Lauren: but I now have satellite people, out there looking for you. Craig: Oh boy. Lauren: And I got a call...... Craig: What happened? Where was I? Lauren: It's just a game, people! Craig: Where was I? Lauren: You were at a furniture store with your "decorator" (crowd hoots and cheers) Craig: at least we are calling him a decorator. Lauren: and my friend calls me and she's like "I have Craig Kilborn in a green chair, in the corner. Wait, he is saying 'This is comfortable, my God this is comfortable.' " Craig: That's hilarious. Lauren: So that was good, right? Did that really happen. Do you remember that? Craig: I sit in chairs and do say like that's comfortable. Lauren: You seemed like you were very comfortable. Craig: I'm very passionate about chairs that I have in my house. Lauren: Do you get some chairs for your house? Craig: Now you're prying. Don't be prying. Can I change the subject. And put it on you for a second. Lauren: yes.... Craig: Here's a critic ... this is from the Oregonean newspaper, this is what this critic is saying about you. Lauren: ohh Craig: "Lauren Graham has silky hair, sparkling eyes, and slim, graceful shoulders, that might have been sculpted by Michaelangelo, had Renaissance women followed the teachings of aerobics and low carb diets." (cheers from audience) That's nice! Lauren: Umm Craig: This is Peter Carlin of the Oregoneon, to me it means Peter wants to meet you. Lauren: I guess...... If that's not what it means then I like to see what wants to meet you looks like. That's nice, right. That doesn't resemble me really at all. Craig: Silky hair. Your eyes do sparkle. Lauren: My hair is curly and crazy, Its all...... Craig: Right now it's silky. Lauren: I guess. Craig: Sparkling eyes, that's definite. That's why you got in the business, your sparkling eyes, the slim graceful shoulders, have you ever been complimented on that. Lauren: No, I'm like a swimmer. You know. So that's very nice, I would like to say thank you. That is incredibly nice. Craig: You're a big star now. There are going to be people, that are going to be sending out satellite people to follow you into furniture stores. You've reached that level. Lauren: I can only hope. Craig: She's sitting in a char .... she says it's comfortable......oh my God it's comfortable..... Lauren: but isn't that fun, isn't that kind of a fun, running thing. Craig: I feel like... Lauren: Do you feel creeped out by it? Cause I'll stop. Craig: I'm saying trespassing. Lauren: Really? Craig: Yeah. Lauren: I feel like there is some little part of you that kind of thinks this is kind of cool, though, don't you. Craig: If your satellite people are hot, then yeah. (audience cheers) How did you spend your summer, big star. what did you do? Lauren: I tried to be a big star, I can't do it. I went to the Hampdens, that's a cliché you're supposed to do. Craig: Ohhh. Lauren: But I have like family there, cousins, and we played scrabble, and umm Trivial Pursuit, which is no fun, because my cousin Ted has all the cards memorized. It's fixed. So then there was like a celebrity softball tournament, in South Hampden. Craig: Sure. Lauren: Where you there? Craig: No, but I heard about these things. When you're a celebrity..... Lauren: Well I guess! And my cousins were like "are you going to the softball tournament?" and I was like "what softball tournament?" and they're like "it's a celebrity softball tournament." and I'm like "You don't just show up!" like you just don't attend, like Puff Daddy has to invite you or something. Craig: Like your family doesn't get how the celebrity thing works. Lauren: No. So I like just ahhh, it was lame. It was just lame. I feel bad because I Think I should have more... Craig: Do people recognize you now out here in LA, more. Lauren: People think that I look like that girl on that show. Which is, then my only concern is that, because really this happens all the time now. What can I do to help these nice people out, like what can I do to look more like ... me. Craig: Yeah. So they know. Lauren: What kind of surgery, or cosmetic procedure do I need to have to look more like myself. Craig: Do you know what you do, take your satellite, people off me, and have them follow you around. And when you see some people , have your satellite people go "oh my God it's Lauren Graham, it's Lauren Graham" Lauren: Oh good. Craig: Then the people will recognized you and say "That's Lauren Graham." Lauren: And I'll start like a mob in the mall or something. Craig: Good luck with that. Lauren: Thanks. Craig: Ok. We will be right back with 5 Question! Commercial break.
Craig: We are back with Lauren Graham, star of The Gilmore Girls. And you have a little bit of fear of the 5 Questions. Lauren: Well I feel I need to take a look at my own obsessions, cause clearly I 'm obsessed with you and I can't deny it. And i'm obsessed with 5 Questions. I'm obsessed with trivia, and I've always had a fear, because I love 5 Questions so much, that, finally the day will come that I get to do 5 Questions. Craig: Last time you were on, before, were you first or second guest? Lauren: I was the second guest. Craig: So you've never played. This is the first time. Can I offer you some advise. Don't screw up. OK. Here we go. It's time for 5 Questions. Geography. You were born in Hawaii, Do you know the capital of Alaska, do you know, do you know? Lauren: Capital of Alaska?

DL: My first guest stars in the critically acclaimed Gilmore Girls, ladies and gentlemen, here is the lovely Lauren Graham. DL: How you doing? Lauren: Fine, thank you, how are you. DL: I'm good, tell me about the Gilmore Girls, and the WB and that kind of stuff. What is the show, how long has it been on, what do you do? Lauren: Well, umm, what I do, Dave, is I'm and actor on a program, and it's about a single mom, raising a kid. DL: Is that you? Are you the mom? Lauren: That's me, I had her when I was 16, is the story. DL: A little young to start a family, isn't it? Lauren: It's a little young, that's the whole thing. That's the point. I left home and raised a kid on my own, and I'm so great because of that. DL: Now, its your daughter, right, so you and your daughter are the Gilmore Girls? Lauren: We are the Gilmore Girls. DL: It's just the two of you. Lauren: Well, I guess you can consider the women who plays my mother another Gilmore Girl. Well those are pretty much the girls. DL: Well thetas good. Lauren: Its is good. DL: And people enjoy the show. Lauren: People enjoy the show and we are doing well. DL: How long has it been on? Lauren: This is our second season. (applause from audience) Lauren: Thanks. DL: How are you, are you comfortable being here and you're happy, you're not nervous are you? Lauren: I'm so, umm, thrilled to meet you. DL: Well thetas very nice. Lauren: No its true, I watched you when you were a daytime show. DL: That was a long time ago. You weren't even alive then. Lauren: Yeah I was. It was the summer I couldn't get a job, cause I couldn't drive, but, umm, cause I wasn't old enough, but I was too old to go to camp. So I sat home and watched your show, and then... (Laughter from audience and Dave) DL: Good for you. Lauren: Thanks. I loved it sooo much. This story is only unflattering to me, but umm, it carried through to college, and I had a little bit, like I never came to you house or anything, but I did have like a problem, like an obsessional kind of a thing for you. DL: Wow. Lauren: And umm, I'm just saying the truth, and if I don't say it now, like when else and am I going to say it. You know what I mean. DL: You know if you come on Oprah with me you can say it. Lauren: OK DL: That's very sweet, I'm very flattered. Lauren: Yeah, but, it sort of culminated when I was in college and you had a cold, you had a terrible cold, you remember the time. You really had a bad cold, and I was writing my thesis, and I was taking my break every night at the monologue, just to check in on you, to make sure you are OK. And then had to move on, Dave, I just had to. DL: That's very nice, cause I'll tell you, maybe you have a sense of this with your own show, when you are doing it, you sometimes forget that it even goes anywhere. Lauren: Oh, absolutely, DL: And the when you here things back like this, its amazing. Honestly. Lauren: Well that's, I fell that way too. I have someone who tells every one, just don't tell me anything. I don't watch it, I don't see any of the press, I don't know the numbers, I just try to enjoy the experience. DL: I understand you have family with you here tonight. Lauren: Well yes, I have family in the audience. Humm, I'm not even looking this way. DL: Are they like, mom, dad... Lauren: It's my dad, my step-mother, my brother Chris, my sister Maggie, and I believe this is the first live thing they have seen do, since my highschool production of Hello Dolly. DL: Wow that's pretty good. Well that makes you a little extra nervous I guess. Lauren: Yeah, its does. Thanks for bring it up. DL: Well, I'm sorry. Lauren: But I'm also just not looking that way. So I'll just stay here with you. DL: So did you have a nice Christmas. Lauren: I did. I don't get to see them enough because of this job, so I got to come home and it's my brother's first semester back from college, and I don't want to say he was like a trouble making kid, but we're just glad he's back from college and not from juvie, you know. So umm, he's really matured, he's doing so well, and he brought the family a present the year, which was one of those light up deer. The suburbs are just nutty for them, DL: Yeah the beautiful white outline of a deer. Lauren: So in the darkness it looks like a deer nibbling on my lawn, you know. We didn't have one, and my brother brought it to us at 11 o'clock at night, with a couple of buddies, giggling, and you know you can get the deer at the store or from your neighbor's yard. So we're pretty sure he got it at the 24 hour, lit up deer store. DL: That's a lovely holiday thought either way. You like when you do the show in California. Lauren: Yeah. DL: Los Angeles, Hollywood, you meet a lot of big stars and stuff? Lauren: Umm, no. DL: Really. I would think they would all be coming over to see what you are doing. Lauren: I don't know, I don't get out much I guess. There was one day, we film at Warner Brothers, the studio, and you know, ER used to be there, and George Clooney still has an office there. And once and awhile there is "Clooney watch", they are like " Clooney is on the lot, Clooney is on the lot". He actually stopped somebody one day, and said something nice about the show. And that afternoon I got a couple of calls from bigwigs, who are like the big people, saying they had something to ask me regarding George Clooney. Now, I really didn't think it could be anything, but...there was a teeny tiny little part of me that thought "Clooney wants me" You know. DL: Well I guess it could be that. Lauren: But I just thought that's how Clooney would do it, Clooney doesn't do his own dirty work....he has some one call. DL: I wouldn't call it dirty work. Lauren: I don't mean it like that. My dad is in the audience! DL: Maybe he wanted you to help get his hands on one of those light up deer. Lauren: Well what he wanted was a poster, like a signed poster. DL: That's sweet. Lauren: Its really nice, cause he had a friend who was a fan of the show, but I would have done that if like, whoever called. Anyways. The point is that Clooney doesn't want me. DL: You don't know that. There could be a million other factors at work here. I wouldn't be surprised if one day in the not too distant future, some other piece of this puzzle falls into place. Lauren: Well I don't even know...... I'm mean, I guess who doesn't want Clooney? Right? DL: Well, me. I'm not that interested. Lauren: OK. Right. DL: The band, the horn section, some members of the band. Lauren: Well, so I don't know, I don't know, it just would have been, it would have been a cool..... it would have been a good story to tell here DL: It's still a great story. Lauren: Well. DL: You recently received a nomination, Golden Globe nomination. Lauren: That's true. DL: That's nice. Lauren: It is nice. DL: When do they pass those out? Lauren: I guess in January, pretty soon. January 20th. DL: Are you excited? Lauren: Umm, I am. I am excited. But that's how I get excited. And I go "I am, I am excited" And when people call you with these kinds of things they want some reaction. First of all the phone rings at five thirty in the morning. So immediately I think "I'm in trouble" Like I immediately thought I did something wrong, late to work or you know. So I ignored the phone, which is what I do in those situations. And then it kept ringing and ringing, and I was like, "wow, huh, wow," and people get like so mad. They're like "Aren't you so excited?" Like the people on the radio, they want you to be like that. Like when they win stuff. And I'm not like that. I get like, numb, like I've been in an accident, or something. And then you have to call other people with your reaction and so......and then... they ask you ... all the people ask you questions you haven't thought of like "What are you going to wear?" and "What are you going to say?"... " Who do you call" DL: It's all overwhelming. Lauren: It is overwhelming. DL: Well I hope you win. That would be very nice. Lauren: Oh well that's funny. DL: Well its nice to meet you. Lauren: Its very nice to meet you too. DL: And good luck with the show. Thanks very much, and I hope you come back. Lauren: Thank you so much. Thank you so much. DL: Thank you. Lauren Graham, everybody we'll be right back with Eddy Brill.
Jay: Lauren, how are you. Lauren: Fine, thank you. Jay: I read in my notes today that we met ? I'm usually good at these things. Lauren: You may not remember, You were very, very kind to me early in my career. Jay: I was ? Lauren: Um hum. You're so kind, probably all the time, you just don't remember. I was new to LA, and I was driving what can be best described as a Pacer. Jay: an AMC Pacer. A fine collector automobile. Lauren: yeah, except mine had come from Chicago, for no reason, and it had areas of it that were just kind of rusted out. So I used to get a lot of guff. Guff, for driving this car. Jay: Guff ? There's an LA word. A lot of guff. Lauren: I did that for the sailors ? Umm, so I was driving with my boyfriend, at the time, and he said "Role down your window, there's a comedian who wants to say something to you." And I thought I was going to get mocked. And I role down the window and a very nice, distinguished man said "excuse me, I just wanted to let you know that you had a tail light out." And I said "Thank you, Jay Leno! " and it was you. Jay: Well that's lovely. OK . Lauren: So then I thought, that you know, this is my big shot, here at the red light. I thought I would make my career. And I was eating a bagel, and I said "Do you want some bagel ?" ...Isn't that good ? Aren't you surprised I haven't been here earlier ? Jay: Yeah, yeah. I think I remember burning rubber, and taking off. Lauren: I was like "Wait, wait." .... So isn't that funny ? Jay: Yes, that's a fascinating story. Well, I hope you got the tail light fixed. Lauren: I did. In fact I just junked the whole car. Jay: What was I in, do you remember ? Lauren: You were driving.....aaa..... surprisingly .....you were driving a Ford Taurus. Jay: I wasn't driving a.....I didn't have a Ford Taurus. I wasn't driving a Taurus. What color was it ? Lauren: Its was green. Jay: No. Green, no that was a 66 Chrysler Hemi Coronet. That was not a stupid, Ford Taurus ! Lauren: Ummm.... Jay: Did you really think that of me. Get out ! A Taurus. Lauren: I just thought that, cause you know you like your cars and ..... Jay: Duh..... Lauren: and I thought maybe.........I love that you're so insulted by a Ford Taurus. Jay: I am insulted by that. Lauren: Cause the Taurus people are gonna be very happy about that. But I ummm.... Jay: Well screw them, it was a 66 Coronet. Thank you very much. See the men know what a Hemi Coronet is. Thank you very much. Lauren: I thought it was very nice, it gave you very sensible, well rounded, kind of edge. Jay: Well thank you very much, that's what I am, I'm too edgy. So you come from a big family ? Tell me your background. Lauren: Well, no, I'm an only child, really. I have a half brother, and two half sisters. Are you surprised that I'm an only child ? Jay: No, you have two half brothers, and two half sisters. Lauren: No wait. I just have one half brother. And two half sisters. But they came very late in my life. so, I was raised by my dad. Jay: So you're not an only child. Lauren: Well, I was.....I'm the only child of the two people who had me.....that sounds dirty..... Jay: You know, we're not working on a prenuptial agreement here .......I'm just trying to find out ....... so you do have brothers and sisters. Lauren: Who I love. Chris, Maggie and Chase. Jay: So you grew up where ? Lauren: I grew up in Northern Virginia, outside of DC. ..... Rock on .... Fairfax County. Jay: Now, your dad raised you. Lauren: Yes, that's right. Jay: What did he do ? Lauren: He's a lawyer. Jay: He's a lawyer ? Ohh, I see. Lauren: Yes. Jay: That would explain all the half sister, half brother thing. Lauren: Yes. Very technical. Jay: Now, you came to LA. What kind of job did you have when you came here ? Did you get a job right away in show business ? Lauren: Well I actually started in New York, and I did, I got a job very quickly. And I was thrilled, and my agent, who called me, said "I have a job for you. How tall are you ?" Well, I'm 5' 9" . Yeah, 5' 9'' . OK. An umm he said "That's great cause you fit the costume." So I went down to the place I was hired to be 5' 9" , and I was play a character of a soccer.. ummm.... World Cup Soccer mascot .... it was a dog . It was a big head. And ummm.. Jay: You had to wear the dog head. Lauren: The whole thing. I had to wear the dog body. Yeah. Jay: Did you do your hair and everything before... Lauren: I was like maybe they'll think of me for the actual soccer ball or something . Jay: Could you be seen, or just in the big dog head ? Lauren: Let me tell of something about playing the character of a dog, Jay. It's very, very difficult, because people come up and punch you, cause hey, you're a dog and it's so funny. And they want their picture with you, you know. And I realized throughout the day, I was smiling for pictures. (laughter form audience) Jay: But you couldn't be seen. You were a dog. Lauren: That's right, Jay. But I didn't think of that at the time. Jay: Was it heavy, was it hot wearing the costume ? Lauren: It was very hot, and I had to share it with another person, because, apparently if you stay in it too long, you just start shooting people. And so every hour I would have to, like, exchange with this girl, who was a lovely girl, but, and I wish her the best, but she was sweaty. I would have just have gotten my self esteem back after the hour, and I would have to get back in the wet, nasty costume and umm, so here I am, so it all worked out OK. Jay: And you're still 5' 9" . Lauren: And I'm still 5' 9" , that's true. Jay: So do you get recognized now. Now that you're not wearing the dog head. Do you find people know you a little more. Lauren: Well I do find sometimes, and it's always surprising, I always get embarrassed ... for the people .... like i get more nervous ..... kind of ... you know .... I was shopping the other day, and some one came up to me and said " I love the show and I was so touched " and I said ohh thanks and "my sister and I watch it together, could we get your autograph." Yes and I was signing the thing, and some one else tapped me on the shoulder and she was like "excuse me" and I was like, I'm sooooo famous, I'm like, I'm huge. And I was like, aah yesss. And she goes " Can I see these in an eight and a half ? " An I was like ......here's were I am, and here's were it its. I was like, do I work at the store, do I.... Jay: Gilmore Girls, you have a tough time spot. Lauren: Yeah. Jay: What are you on, you're on between..... Lauren: You know, it's the Friends are on, at eight o'clock on Thursdays, the Survivor, God knows..... Hey don't cheer for Friends while I'm talking......and ummm I heard they're moving Monday Night Football, to really crush us, moved to Thursdays. Jay: Oh really. To try to put an end the that Gilmore juggernaut, that's coming down the road. Lauren: Cause we have at least 80 people watching now. Jay: But it's critically acclaimed, so you do a wonderful job. Lauren: Thank you. I'm very proud of it. Jay: Gilmore Girls, Lauren Graham. Thank you, thank you very much. Lauren: Thanks.
