“Everyone is in a good mood, there is no pressure [on « Jimmy Kimmel Live »]. I did the Ellen show, everyone was scared. This is the impression with which I left more than ten years ago, ”he added.
“Her thing about not knowing what was going on may be true. I’m a boss and don’t feel like you have to be everyone’s best friend … you have to treat people fairly and most importantly pay them – but I noticed several years ago that his staff had fear. “
