I presented the People's Choice Awards.
And this is something that I actually have never told anybody.
But I was presenting, and then we go to the nominees, and it goes dark.
And in the corner of my eye, I see Ellen and Portia right there, 'cause I always know where they're at.
And I see them right there.
And Ellen's waving with both hands.
And then I'm like, "She's not — Is she waving at me?
Is she acknowledging that I exist in the real world?"
And it was so weird, so I try not to look at you.
And finally I looked at you, and you were.
And then you gestured to Portia to wave at me, and then she waved at me.
And I was trying so hard to be cool.
But I was dying inside.
I couldn't believe that you were saying hi to me.
So I like to make the pasta fresh.
So we crank it.
This is freshly made.
And here, I point to it and gesture to show you how we do it through the machine.
This is— I crank and I crank and I crank and I crank.
I crank the pasta.
There was definitely a spark and something was happening.
And first time Buddy and I danced together was at a school exhibition.
We walked down on stage.
You'd do your classic intro where you gesture to each other.
And it was almost like the whole stage filled with light.
I like to think that maybe she's so rich and famous that she got up there and they were like,
"All right, Ru, you're gonna fake drive, action."
And she was like...
She's just emphatically, like, gesturing.
Number one, your body language forms a large part of the non-verbal communication
that compliments the verbal communication of your words.
The way you hold yourself, the way you're poised, your posture,
the way you move your hands and gesture to highlight certain points.
These all go hand-in-hand with the words you're speaking
and can help to compliment and drive home those points.
