Jay Leno had double the fun on The Tonight Show in LA yesterday when both Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise stopped by. Emily was there to chat about her film with Colin Firth, Arthur Newman, which hits theaters in limited release tomorrow, while Tom talked up Oblivion. They'll be back together on the promotional trail next year, since they have All You Need Is Kill coming out in 2014. Until then, Emily had only good things to say about Tom, whom she called "instantly popular," and stuck around to show her support during his interview with Jay. Tom rattled off some of his most famous movie lines from Risky Business and others and also shared the story of getting his first motorcycle. Watch a clip of the fun when you click into the gallery!
Jessica Simpson wore a low-cut dress for an appearance on The Tonight Show yesterday. Fresh off an extended holiday vacation to Hawaii with her fiancé, Eric Johnson, their daughter, Maxwell, and a rotating cast of friends and family, Jess was ready to chat about her second pregnancy and her various work projects. One of those projects was announced yesterday morning — a Jessica Simpson scripted comedy is in the works at host Jay Leno's network, NBC.
Jessica was her usual funny candid self while talking with Jay about her expanding family. She said that she and Eric, who've been engaged for two years, "had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up! We're doing it very backwards. I'll just keep my legs crossed this time." As for their having two kids within two years, apparently it wasn't planned. Jessica admitted, "I was extremely shocked because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes, trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. You know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened all over again!"
Emma Stone showed skin in a cutout J. Mendel dress for her appearance on The Tonight Show yesterday. She showed off her dancing skills with Jay Leno and chatted with the host about her upcoming film, Gangster Squad. Emma premiered the film in LA on Monday in a bright red Lanvin look alongside leading man Ryan Gosling, who brought his mom as his date. The costars are prepping for the Friday release of the crime drama, and Ryan's getting extra attention with a new People cover naming him America's most wanted man.
Emma will be back in the spotlight tonight though, since she's nominated at the People's Choice Awards for her work in The Amazing Spider-Man — make sure to watch right here on PopSugar starting at 7:30 p.m. EST/4:30 p.m. PST when we'll be LIVE on the PCA red carpet!
Last night Jennifer Lawrence slipped into a body-hugging gray dress by Alexander Wang for an appearance on The Tonight Show. She chatted with host Jay Leno about her latest release, Silver Linings Playbook, which is out tomorrow, and shared a funny story about her obsession with Honey Boo Boo.
Later in the evening, Jennifer changed into a black Christian Dior number for the LA premiere of Silver Linings Playbook. There, she met up with costar Bradley Cooper and posed for photos with the entire cast. Early reviews praise Jennifer and Bradley for their onscreen chemistry and Hollywood insiders are already buzzing about possible Oscar nods for both actors.
Kristen Stewart was smiley and happy as she stepped out in a colorful Peter Pilotto dress to chat with Jay Leno for The Tonight Show in LA on Monday evening. Kristen spoke to Jay about the final Twilight movies, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2, saying, "Popped one out — pretty concerned with that. Me and Edward are doing quite well; people keep trying to kill my baby. But I'm now superspectacular, so I can take care of that, being a vampire." Kristen also touched on Breaking Dawn Part 2's twist ending: "Every time I see it or even think about it, I get giddy. It freaks me out. . . . It's easy to skim over. But you can find the root of our little twist [in the book]." Kristen switched gears from her blockbuster franchise to promote her indie project On the Road over the weekend. Kristen premiered On the Road at the AFI Festival in LA on Saturday, and she was joined by boyfriend Robert Pattinson at that afterparty. While Kristen was chatting with Jay, Rob was elsewhere in town making his own appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's show.
Miley Cyrus wore a unique ensemble for her Friday chat on The Tonight Show. She and host Jay Leno were together to talk about her small role on Two and a Half Men, but chat veered toward her eye-catching Anthony Vaccarello bustier and Moschino maxi skirt combo. She also chatted about her upcoming album and shared a sneak peek at one of her "backyard sessions" in which she tests out new music. The clip she previewed was special, since right after recording it, Liam Hemsworth proposed! Miley said, "That's one of Liam's favorite songs — he asked me to marry him 20 minutes later. So while I was singing it, I had no idea! He was looking at me funny! And then I knew."
Kristen Stewart rocked flats for her interview on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno that aired on Friday evening. She assured Jay and the audience her choice of footwear wasn't because she wanted to get out of wearing heel. Kristen apparently suffered yet another injury while filming her Breaking Dawn Part 2 reshoots in Vancouver this week. The "puncture wound" came while capturing even more of Bella's first hunt as a vampire, which Kristen says will be awesome when the movie hits theaters in November. Now she's switching gears to promoting Snow White and the Huntsman and she'll be heading to London next week for the junket — where she'll meet our lucky I'm a Huge Fan winner! — and premiere. First up, however, she's rumored to be making a stop off at the Met Gala in NYC on Monday.
Drew Barrymore paired a J.Crew dress with jewelry from Aurélie Bidermann for an interview yesterday on The Tonight Show. Drew teamed up with host Jay Leno to chat about her new movie — so far, the Big Miracle reviews are good! Talk also turned towards Drew's recent engagement to Will Kopelman, and she proudly showed off her nearly 4-carat sparkler. Drew chatted about how she and Will got to dating about a year ago and revealed a bit about their past. She said, "We met a couple years ago, and we actually went on some dates but it wasn't the right time . . . and timing is everything. I do believe that; it's a very powerful thing." Jay even asked if she and Will are hoping for kids. Drew very candidly revealed, "Sure! I don't know [how many] yet. Start with one, see how it goes. If we could be so blessed, that would be wonderful."
Jennifer Garner sat down with Jay Leno last night to discuss her upcoming film Butter, which hits theaters this March. Talk turned from work to her personal life, though, when Jennifer opened up about her pregnancy. She shared that her girls, Violet and Seraphina, are getting excited for their new sibling and are even trying to help name the child by holding "baby naming contests." They've apparently come up with mostly Disney-inspired ideas, including Peter Pan and Captain Hook. Jennifer wouldn't reveal the sex of the little one, but she did say that she's not due until the Spring. As she awaits the arrival of her new addition, Jennifer's been sticking close to home and recently relaxed with a trip to a local nail salon.
Charlize Theron stopped by The Tonight Show in LA last night to chat about her latest feature, Young Adult. The film, which opened last week, has already scored three 2011 award season nominations. Charlize was recognized this morning with a best actress Critics' Choice Awards nomination — check out the entire list of nominees! She's not the only one from the film to get a nod as her costar Patton Oswalt is in the running for best supporting actor, and writer Diablo Cody received a nomination for best screenplay. We'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if the movie earns any Screen Actors Guild Award nominations — join us at 5:50 a.m. PST to watch the SAG nominations live!
