Of course, host Jimmy Fallon got in on the game, impersonating Pee Wee Herman and lip syncing some other lines from famous movies. Cruz proudly declared, “I want my bacon! Bacon is good for me,” imitating a viral star from the reality show Wife Swap.
The Oscar winner revealed that she knew from an early age that she wanted to be an actress.
“All my pictures I find now from my childhood, I am posing,” she said.
“I always crossed my eyes when I was a kid, all my parents’ family albums were ruined,” Fallon quipped back.

“Much better!” he joked. “I almost feel like I should be running for president,” he added, in presidential candidate Donald Trump’s voice. Watch the clips now!
