Anne visited last night The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, to promote Colossal. Amazing as usual, she talked about an outing to a playground earlier in the day that almost ended in injury.
I took Jonathan to a park… and he loves swings, and I noticed all these other kids were coming down the slide. It looked like an unusual slide,’ she explained. ‘Like, maybe it was built before they had child safety measures in place. It was gorgeous and I noticed the kids weren’t going that fast so I said, “OK, I’ll bring Johnny on.”
I [pulled my] skirt around me and I put Johnny there and we are going down the slide and now the moms are watching, but what I hadn’t thought about was physics.
‘So we just go around the corner and instead of slowing down like the other kids we speed up,’ she explained. ‘It starts to go so fast and all the moms are watching and I’m so self-conscious. As it speeds up my thoughts slow down and I just look ahead and I get very serious and very focused and just think, “I must stick this landing.”‘
‘You know when you almost killed your child, but you didn’t. In the inside you’re like, “Everything’s OK. Walk it off, walk it off,”‘ she continued. ‘Then we went back to the swings and stayed there forever.’
