Mariah Carey and Lee DanielsLee Daniels made an appearance on Jon Stewart 's The Daily Show to talk about his six-time Oscar nominated film Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire . Stewart joked about working with a cast of mainly non-actors: Lenny Kravitz , Mariah Carey , Gabourey Sidibe .

Daniels describes how Mariah got involved; Helen Mirren canceled for a "paying job," Mariah called later that day and soon after Mariah had the gig -- with Mirren's blessing.  Stewart, never one to miss a joke, laughed that Daniels somehow said, "Get me the girl from Glitter !"
