“I’m glad I’m one of those people who likes to be prepared, because I’m looking at a $100 bill, and I’m like, ‘Ben Franklin looks really weird.’ I realized it was a prop of ‘Spirit.’ And I almost paid with it,” she explained. “It’s a prop from set, and I looked at it on the floor and thought, ‘Wow, that’s great, it looks real.’ And I thought, because I’ve never had money in my wallet, that’s what I’ll remember.”
In his defense, Spencer argued that it had been more than a year since the film was filmed and that it was natural for him to forget, swiping the fake bill off the set.

You hit the notes, but you realized you’re very Singing less. They were going to have a microphone, so I thought I could use my little radio singing voice… and voice coach Eric Waitro was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll need you – project!’ “

When Fallon asked if she was going to be host of holidays This year, Spencer admitted that she doesn’t think that’s something anyone wants to do to her.
“I usually go home because it’s easy for me, but honestly, no one in my life would ever want me to host a party just because I have to tap out early,” she explained. “I’m ready to do before other people come, and if you’re hosting you can’t go, ‘Oh, guys, you know dinner is from 8:00 to 10:00’ , it’s 9:30.”
