Riley Keough and Billy Eichner on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

One of the best parts of The Late Late Show With James Corden is that the host invites his guests to take part in a group interview, which always makes for some hilarious moments.

On Monday (Aug. 15) actor Billy Eichner and actress Riley Keough sat down with Corden and had an interesting chat about Keough’s star-studded childhood memories of spending time in step-father Michael Jackson’s Neverland and grandfather Elvis Presley’s Graceland (Keough is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley).

Throughout the interview, Keough reminisced about the meaningful gifts she received from Jackson, like a beloved Beauty and the Beast watch from Disneyland. She also detailed growing up with Bubbles the Chimp and Jackson's other primate pets -- even mentioning that she brought one of them to school -- and with each story, Eichner simply could not get over Keough’s on-another-level childhood experience

"You were at Neverland and Graceland," he offered, throwing up his hand after she confirmed. "I've never even been to San Diego."

Because Keough was spending time around celebs as a kid, Eichner had to joke he was Janis Joplin's son just to pretend he could relate, when really he had an "average" childhood growing up in Queens, NY.
