The actress quipped, "He loves a good pencil parer… It’s very satisfying, isn’t it?" Jimmy further added how most pencil sharpeners are now electric to which Ruth called "exciting." Following her revelation that Daniel Craig is a fan of pencil sharpeners, the actress joked how she may have ruined the former James Bond actor's reputation.
