While the Walkman may not be the most up-to-date musical gadget, Julia Roberts was still pretty excited when Matt Lauer surprised her with one on Today.

“How did you even find one of these?” the actress asked the Today co-host after he presented her with the exact same one used during the famous bathtub scene in Pretty Woman. “I didn’t know they existed anymore!”

But an even bigger surprise? When Roberts hit play and Prince’s hit “Kiss” came on.

“That’s amazing,” she told Lauer before giving costar Richard Gere a listen to the song she belted out in the film.

“That is so funny. I can’t believe it – I’m going to play this for my kids.”

Roberts, along with others from the cast of the hit 1990 film, including Richard Gere, Hector Elizondo, Laura San Giacomo and director Garry Marshall, sat down with Lauer to celebrate the romantic comedy’s 25th anniversary.

The entire interview will air in two parts, on Tuesday and Wednesday, on Today.
