The Fast and Furious star was promoting her role in the latest film and looked super glamorous as she stripped off to do her interview with Jimmy from the comfort of a hot bath. However Helen urged the host to be quick with his questions as she warned she was “running out of bubbles” to cover herself with.
“Oh my God. you are the absolute… you are the greatest. Oh my God, I love you,” Jimmy exclaimed when Helen popped up on screen.
She replied: “I’m in my favourite place in the world.
“You might be the first guest ever to be in the bathtub on the Tonight Show,” Jimmy remarked.
But Helen explained: “That’s what’s so brilliant about Zoom.
“I was thinking, you know, ‘Why not be in the place you love to sit and chat to people?’
“I love to chat to my husband while sitting in the bath, so why not do it to the whole of America?”
Jimmy laughed: “That’s vert smart. That’s why you’re the best.”
Helen had plenty of bubbles in her bath to cover up her chest and had pulled her locks back with a hair band.
However despite originally appearing completely covered up, Helen urged Jimmy not to waste time.
“I’m running out of bubbles though, that’s the problem,” she giggled.
“You’re chatting away and my bubbles are going down.”
Covering his face, Jimmy promised to be quick as the actress referenced her film: “Fast and furious!”
In the ninth film from the franchise, Helen takes on the role of Magdalene Shaw, nicknamed Queenie, a criminal mastermind.
The actress took inspiration from one of her aunts with the name Queen and “begged, moaned and even cried a little bit” for a role in the film.
It comes after Helen revealed she would love to play a James Bond villain.
“I have not often played the main villain,” she told Access Hollywood.
“When they were doing James Bond, I was like, ‘Why don’t they have a fabulous female villain?’
“All the villains were always male and I was like, ‘Come on guys … have a great female villain.
“And they never did that. And I bet they do on the next one now.”
Fast and Furious 9 is out now.
