Matt Damon took over Jimmy Kimmel Live — renamed Jimmy Kimmel Sucks for the night — yesterday. Matt hosted with the help of special guests Reese Witherspoon, Amy Adams, Demi Moore, and Nicole Kidman. Matt was also joined by his close pal Ben Affleck. It wasn't easygoing between Matt and Ben, though. Matt's had a long-running fake feud with Jimmy, but Ben and Jimmy have always been close publicly. That rivalry came to a head last night — check out Matt and Ben's silly exchange in the clip above.
Matt had further digs for Jimmy, opening the show with a question to the audience: "Is it weird to see a person with actual talent host this show?" Even Jimmy's own parents came on in a prerecorded video to say Matt is the son they'd always wanted. The whole thing was latest chapter of a years-long joke between Matt and Jimmy, who's closed many a show with an apology to Matt for running out of time for their interview.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are all over the press circuit this week, which can signify only one thing: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is near. The conclusion to the series hits theaters on Nov. 16, and Robert Pattinson stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night for a quick chat about make-out scenes on set and his favorite part about shooting the saga. Hint: it's probably not the answer you're expecting. Check out the video to hear his answer!
Ben Affleck chatted about Argo last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Ben's third directorial project opens on Friday, but there's plenty more for the actor-director to talk about, including his family. Ben spoke with Jimmy about his wife, Jennifer, and their young son, Samuel, who's a ringer for Babe Ruth. Ben also shared his modest goals that his three little ones turn out "reasonably sane."
Jessica Simpson visited Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel yesterday to chat about her impending pregnancy and her latest TV venture, Fashion Star. Jimmy joked saying, "I would be honored to deliver your child on TV," should Jessica go into labor during their chat. She's not far from welcoming a baby girl with fiancé Eric Johnson, and when the moment comes Jess said she'll be drugged and "ready to push!" Check out what else she had to say in the clip!
Kristen Stewart's interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live aired last night, and she gave some insight as to what it was like filming her intense birth scene in Breaking Dawn Part 1. She also responded to comments that Robert Pattinson has made during his own press rounds about their first ever Twilight sex scene! The movie, which is out next Friday, features many milestones, including Bella and Edward's wedding. Kristen said that scene wasn't about her and Robert, but rather a celebration for the whole cast and crew — check out what Kristen told Jimmy!
Jake Gyllenhaal swung by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night in LA to chat about his new movie Source Code. The actor is all about promoting the film ahead of its April 3 release, and he was at SXSW last week for a Texan premiere trying to avoid overzealous fans. Jake recently talked about the love story he shares with Michelle Monaghan in the surprisingly action-packed movie, and he chatted with Jimmy about how he celebrated his 30th birthday and a sweet Bansky present he got from his mom — check it out below.

And now: your delightful Ryan Gosling video of the day! From Gosling saying "Hey girl" to performing with his band Dead Man's Bones, we soak up any little bits of the actor we can get, and this week Jimmy Kimmel gave his US audience a special treat. When Gosling stopped by Kimmel's show to talk about Blue Valentine, the host got him to whip out a ukulele like his character in the film and sing "You Always Hurt the One You Love" with him. Kimmel tries to hog the spotlight to hilarious effect, but come on — you can't steal the spotlight from Gosling. Watch now.
Scottish cutie James McAvoy made a stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night as he gets down to work promoting his upcoming animated film, Gnomeo and Juliet. Apparently Kimmel's knowledge of the UK is, um, limited, and the host got McAvoy to spill about his kilt-wearing past (and what happens when you go commando). Watch it below!
