Emily in Paris star Lily Collins made an appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden on Tuesday night and shared her whale of a good story with the British host. During her interview with James Corden, the 32-year-old actress, who recently got married, revealed that she bravely went swimming in the ocean with whales.

She told the host she had been planning to watch her husband Charlie McDowell, 38, in a boat while he surfed when unexpectedly two whales suddenly breached the surface.

"And as he was surfing, two whales breached, a mom and a baby, and they started flipping next to me," said Lily, wearing over-the-knee black boots with a gold and black mini dress. "And the captain of the little ship I was on said 'Do you want to swim with them?"

Lily said the whales were about as close as James Corden's cameras and that she initially told the captain "no" when asked if she'd get in the water but then decided "you know what, why not."
