Kristin Scott Thomas Talks PRINCE On Fallon; Jimmy Challenges Him To “Ping Pong”

Kristin Scott Thomas & Jimmy Fallon Screen Cap

Kristin Scott Thomas was on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote her new movie “Only God Forgives” that also stars Ryan Gosling. Fallon asked her about the moment her life changed; when she met Prince and was casted in his movie “Under The Cherry Moon” in 1986.

Note: The clip was not provided to YouTube so those outside the United States may have trouble seeing the clip as NBC blocks it outside the U.S.

Jimmy then goes on about the first time Prince was to be on the show and they were supposed to play “ping pong” (Table Tennis) and if it was to be on camera or off. We think Jimmy was mistaken the first time when he thought Prince wanted to play “beer pong” with him! Ha.

Jimmy is pretty confident he can beat Prince in ping pong though.

They also talked about “Better With Time” from Lotusflow3r/MPLSound being written about her.

Jimmy LOVES to talk about Prince. So much so he spent more time talking about ping pong than actually interviewing her. Hmm.-DocFB

Diagnosis: The early reviews of “Only God Forgives” have KST out-shining Gosling in the movie. Too bad we didn’t know that from the clip above. The stories KST could have told from the set of “Under The Cherry Moon”….man….that would have been cool. Haven’t seen that movie in years. Would be nice to see on the big screen somewhere….

    Hmmmmmmmmm … “Better With Time”… I bet that will be out in the Fam Illuminati circles very soon!

    I’ve always love that whole Parade album, which is why I think Kristin liked it, it was and still is a timeless gorgeously produced album, just a wonderful period in Prince’s career, thanks to the influences, sense of taste and talents of Wendy & Lisa at the time and of all the WB staff and other musicians bringing in their styles like Erica and Atlanta… Susannah’s artistic sensibilities, etc. etc. UNLIKE NOW and for the last what close to 20 years of utter crud Prince has created.

    Yes, I bet there’s lots of stories but Kristin Scott Thomas is a lady and therefore would be very discrete. Thanks for this post I’ll keep a look out for the film. She’s a great actress.

    “Would be nice to see on the big screen somewhere”. Well, make it happen, Cap’n!!! What about Nuart theater in L.A. They showed Purple Rain there. Purple Rain was that iconic 80’s rock movie, but to this day, I still enjoy me some UTCM. PITS!!!!!
