'Game of Thrones' Star Lena Headey Hasn't Read the Books, But Her Mom Has

by Kate Erbland June 17, 2014 @ 10:15 AM
Star Lena Headey hit up 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to chat about this past season and what's in store for her (and Cersei) in the future. Host Jimmy Kimmel asked about Headey's familiarity with the books, and her answer was quite cute (along with the image of her mom greedily digging into the books to find the best Cersei stuff). Who knew anything 'Game of Thrones' related could be so sweet?

Ice Cube Gets Angry Over Pumpkin Bisque and Lavender Body Wash

by Kate Erbland June 13, 2014 @ 9:43 AM
Actor and rap legend Ice Cube can be pretty intense -- it's part of his charm, really! -- and his signature angry face and enraged voice only add to the laughs in this week's '22 Jump Street.' (Yes, pretty much just like they did with 2012's '21 Jump Street'). Cube is so intense, in fact, that he can make anything (even nice things) sound super-serious, a skill that Jimmy Kimmel put to the test on his show last night.

Hodor From 'Game of Thrones' Crashes and Burns on 'Family Feud'

by Kate Erbland June 13, 2014 @ 8:54 AM
HBO's smash hit 'Game of Thrones' can get pretty wordy, which is why Kristian Nairn's singular performance as Hodor ("Hodor!") is so welcome. With just a one-word vocabulary, Hodor still manages to be a fan favorite -- but that doesn't mean that his unique skills can translate to other television shows, like, oh, 'Family Feud.'

Jimmy Kimmel Cornered Michael Jordan and Made Him Play This Game

by Kate Erbland June 11, 2014 @ 10:54 AM
Jimmy Kimmel has apparently always wanted to get basketball great Michael Jordan to appear on his late-night show as a guest. It's never happened (sad face to Jimmy), but he won't be deterred. When he had the chance to snag some time with Jordan during a recent golf tournament, he went for it and made the NBA superstar palm random objects, all for the amusement of his studio audience.

Can Two Spelling Bee Champs Best Jimmy Kimmel?

by Kate Erbland June 6, 2014 @ 10:25 AM
Every year, Jimmy Kimmel invites the Scripps Spelling Bee champion on to his show for a star-studded face-off (by "star-studded," we mean that some Kimmel regulars run the sketch, this year featured Cousin Sal and Guillermo) to see if the late-night host can take down the newly crowned kids. This year provided a bit of a bigger challenge than normal, considering that the Scripps was won by two winners.

50 Cent Debuts as 'Malefiftycent': "Get Witch or Die Trying"

by Kate Erbland June 6, 2014 @ 9:55 AM
If there was one thing last week's box office winner, Disney's revisionist tale 'Maleficent,' was missing, it was rap stars. There's not a single rapper in the entire film, it's all just Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie and wood nymphs and spinning needles and such. No Ice Cube. No Ice-T. No Eminem. And this injustice will not stand -- because 50 Cent is out to correct it with his new feature film, 'Malefiftycent.'

Tom Cruise Talks 'Top Gun,' Tells Jimmy Kimmel He Invented the Worldwide Premiere Tour

by Kate Erbland June 4, 2014 @ 10:40 AM
Listen, Tom Cruise, we don't doubt your power or your intellect or your marketing acumen. You are one of the world's biggest stars, and you have been for a very long time. But to claim, on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' no less, that you invented the worldwide movie premiere tour that so many big blockbusters still embark on is, well, it's questionable. We have no way of proving you wrong, though perhaps some aged publicist will come out against you, claiming that they invented it, but probably not, because you're Tom Cruise.

From Julia Roberts to Andy Garcia to Ashton Kutcher, these stars know you hate them, and now, after reading your tweets, they know exactly why you hate them.
