>> but first we have a special treat . we get to say hello to, to an actress and former sports illustrated swimsuit cover model brooklyn decker , starring in the upcoming thriller called battleship. good morning to you.
>> good morning.
>> you spent a lot of time running from aliens in this movie.
>> i do, i do.
>> how is that?
>> it's funny. i learned to run much faster, after that. but you're basically running from men in pajamas. because it's all done on green screen . that's not scary. that's quite hilarious.
>> brooklyn, is it true that when you were first talked to about this role, they met you and then they thought, no, you're not tough enough for this?
>> that's exactly right. they kept bringing me and telling me i wasn't tough enough. i thought this is torture.
>> how did you convince them?
>> i had to make snot bubbles come through my nose.
>> can you --
>> can you do that right now?
>> that was not necessary.
>> i know.
>> it's so true. my director said --
>> i can't imagine that.
>> he said you have to make snot bubbles or the part is not yours. so i guess i went in the bathroom, blew my nose and somehow made snot bubbles come out.
>> you know, brooklyn, the second time we got the image. yeah, that was all right.
>> just picture it.
>> wow. there goes the glamorous --
>> that qualifies you for a role by the way, all my kids are going to be stars.
>> meanwhile you're in another movie out coming out as well, that's "what to expect when you're expecting." you play the perfectly expecting trophy wife that your daughter-in-law hates because she's having a hard time with her pregnancy. is that fun?
>> it was.
>> she's annoying?
>> my character is, yeah, and i was saying i'm setting the bar way too high for myself and every other woman. she's walking around in six inch heels.
>> and she's so happy dplp
>> so happy.
>> and she's so in love with her husband.
>> and it's so great being pregnant. everything's perfect.
>> so not right.
>> i know.
>> i know.
>> i saw this movie. i thought you were terrific.
>> thank you so much. thank you.
>> a lot of headlines or you got some attention recently about talking about your own desire to start a family?
>> one day, yes. one day. the question comes up because obviously with what to expect it's a part of the conversation. but not there yet. but i definitely see it in the future.
>> nice to see you. we'll just -- all the snot.
>> i'd love to see that.
>> good luck, by the way, with the movie. the more very is called "battleship" and it's from our sister company universal studios , universal pictures , it opens on may 18th . now
