Keeping it real!

"Vice Principals" star Walton Goggins dropped by to make us a cucumber-lavender cocktail (YUM; here’s the recipe), and while he was at it, he dished about life on the set of the 2018 “Tomb Raider” reboot.

Or, more specifically, the time he spends with the reboot’s leading lady, Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander, who’s taking over the reins from Angelina Jolie.

“She’s incredible,” says Walton. “She kicks my *&! — I mean, look at her!”

Rach’s co-host Nate Berkus couldn’t agree more. “[She’s] so scary! I mean, if I walked into the gym and she was like, ‘I’m your new trainer,’ I’d be like, ‘Bye!’”

Still, Walton says that filming was a ton of fun — as was his off-time, when he got to do a little bit of traveling. “Being in South Africa, I got to travel all over Namibia on my own, and I spent five days with a Himba tribe," he explains.

Walton says that after five days of staying up 'til 3:00 in the morning and putting his new friends' kids to sleep, the chief of the tribe gave him a gold bracelet, which he wore on our show. The chief explained the significance behind the bracelet, telling Goggins, "No matter where you are in the world, you will know that you have a friend."

“That's the kind of travel that changes the course of your life,” says Rach.
