Live from Studio 8H — it’s 奥斯汀巴特勒!
在他的期间 opening monologue, Butler paid tribute to his late mother, who died from cancer in 2014, 当。。。的时候 猫王 star was 23. “Some of my favorite memories from growing up are watching SNL 和她. And we’d watch every week,” 巴特勒说. “And even though I had this crippling shyness, when I was with her, I’d just do anything to make my mom laugh.”
“I do ridiculous faces and voices, I did this ridiculous Gollum impression. Being silly with her is what broke me out of my shell and the core of what started me in acting,” 他继续. “My mom is no longer with us, but I’ve been thinking about her a lot this week, just imagining how proud she’d be of her son, who used to not be able to order food for myself at a restaurant, is now standing on this stage.”
Added Butler: “而今晚, just know that anytime you see me doing a silly voice or making a funny face, that’s for you, 妈妈。”
