Adult film star Stormy Daniels appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night, answering many of his questions with teasing questions of her own -- when she even answered at all.

Adding to confusion about whether Daniels denies a 2006 sexual relationship with then-businessman Donald Trump, a statement was released earlier Tuesday on Daniels' behalf that read in part, "I am not denying this affair because I was paid hush money ... I am denying this affair because it never happened."

Daniels' lawyer confirmed the statement was authentic, but when Kimmel pointed out that the signature on the new statement looks different from her signature elsewhere, Daniels agreed.

"That does not look like my signature, does it?" she commented.

Kimmel asked her where the statement came from, and Daniels said she didn't know.

"It came from the internet. I also work for the FBI and I'm a man, according to the internet today," she said.

Kimmel then asked Daniels whether she had signed a non-disclosure agreement.

"If you didn't have a non-disclosure agreement, you could certainly say, 'I don't have a non-disclosure agreement,' yes?" Kimmel asked.

Daniels replied, "You're so smart, Jimmy."

The talk show host later asked her about the 2011 interview with InTouch Magazine, in which Daniels described how they allegedly met and began the relationship.

"I thought this was a talk show, not a horror movie," Daniels said after Kimmel read an excerpt about Trump meeting her in his room in pajama pants.

She said she hadn't seen the whole transcript of the interview, but that she did not give the interview as it was written.

When Kimmel asked her if the statements he had read were true, she replied, "Define 'true.'"

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, first made allegations she'd had a relationship with Trump in 2011, according to the Associated Press. She again made the allegations before the election, but it was brought back into the headlines after a recent Wall Street Journal article reported that Trump's personal lawyer paid Daniels $130,000 to prevent her from discussing it publicly.

Kimmel addressed critics who said he shouldn't have had Daniels on his show during his opening monologue, pointing out that he'd had Monica Lewinsky on his show multiple times.
