Here’s something you don’t hear everyday: “I was lucky in the fact that I was hit by a cement truck as a kid.”
The Late Show With David Letterman
Anna Kendrick travels a lot—that's part of being a working actress, after all—and she's kind of got her various trips down to a science. Literally. She needs drugs to do it.
Stephen Colbert has already begun making the final rounds of ‘The Colbert Report’ in preparation for his new CBS ‘Late Show’ hosting gig, but don’t expect David Letterman to vacate the chair just yet. The longest-running late-night host has officially set a departure date for May 2015, bringing an end to ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ as we know it.
Ben Stiller has accomplished a lot in his life -- this is the guy who created 'Zoolander,' after all -- but his dearest memory might just be a very unexpected one: that time he survived a hot air balloon ride. Said ride wasn't conceived of as a daredevil experiment, it was actually a fun part of a Stiller family vacation in Italy. It was supposed to be a good experience!
Things apparently got buckwild on the set of ‘Into the Woods,’ with acting queen of the world (that is her official title, by the way) Meryl Streep very nearly dying (read: probably not dying, but let’s go with it) when she almost fell off a table. It was, however, a witchy table that she happened to be jumping on while playing a witch, complete with witchy robes, which she (witchily?) tripped on. Streep’s fall was broken by one single brave soul: Emily Blunt.
Seth Rogen and James Franco might be good pals and one of Hollywood’s most unlikely--and beloved!--comedy duos, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t step back and see each other for who they really are. For instance, Rogen thinks Franco is “a weird guy,” much like, well, most of America. Weirdly, though, Rogen promises that Franco is perhaps slightly less weird than we all think he is.
Many celebrities would likely balk at turning their late night chat show appearance into a remembrance of a recently passed star -- too emotional, too sad, too something -- but Edward Norton not only took the time during his segment on last night's 'Late Show' to talk about director Mike Nichols with host David Letterman, he did it was style, grace, and some really lovely personal stories.
Here is a brief list of things that happened during Jennifer Lawrence's appearance on 'The Late Show' last night: she sang with host David Letterman, the duo discussed tummy troubles, they chatted about bowling, they both totally biffed introducing a clip, Lawrence begged Letterman to not retire, they walked out during a live taping, and then Lawrence took over the entire show.
Jim Carrey has plenty of trademark characters to trot out -- Ace Ventura, the Cable Guy, Fire Marshall Bill, the Riddler (wait, scratch that one) -- but the funny man seems to be quite recently endeared to a new, highly specific one: fellow actor Matthew McConaughey in his Lincoln commercials. Carrey debuted his take on the admittedly overly dreamy commercials during last week's 'Saturday Night Live,' but he's not done with it just yet.
Beloved NBC sitcom 'Parks and Recreation' is coming to an end after six seasons, and star Amy Poehler isn't taking it so well. Sure, sure, the funny lady is excited about the future for both her and her super-mega-all-star cast, but that doesn't mean she needs to go out on a graceful note. Actually, Poehler is determined to light the place up before she says her final goodbyes.
