Ellen DeGeneres Talks Pre-Oscars Rituals and Nerves, Jokes About Costume Changes and More!

Where does Ellen DeGeneres find the time?

The Oscars host managed to squeeze in chat with E! News correspondent Kristina Guerrero inside the Architectural Digest Greenroom Wednesday, where she revealed how she's prepping for the 86th Annual Academy Awards Sunday. "I like to shower. I like to shower first and comb my hair," the 56-year-old deadpanned. "I like to smell good. I'll put something that smells good on. My breath, I like to do a mint of some sort. And I'll do a couple of sit-ups and push-ups. That's what I do. And I stretch."

DeGeneres joked that she has a record number of costume changes planned for the show. "I'm going to change every other sentence," the comedienne said. "I have so many things to wear!"

In all serious, Hedi Slimane from St. Laurent created some custom looks for the Finding Dory voice actress. "He's made some gorgeous, beautiful suits," DeGeneres gushed. "And I'm very honored and flattered that he wanted to put clothes on me. So I'll be changing a few times."
