Amy Poehler Tells An Adorable Story Involving Her Son, His Lisp & Spicy Salsa

The outright coolest mom/lady/feminist/human in Hollywood — nay, on Earth — is Amy Poehler. HANDS. DOWN. The woman is as flawless as they come.

Aaron Paul Claims He Can Tell A Dog’s Sex By Petting It — But He Has Yet To Touch Lucca

Aaron Paul is best known for his acting, most notably as Jesse Pinkman on “Breaking Bad,” but he has other talents. On last night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the actor (who’s giving me a beard boner) demonstrated his innate, God-given ability to correctly guess the gender of a dog simply by petting it. While I’m impressed, I…

Miss Utah Sings The Wage Gap Answer That She Bombed At The Miss USA Pageant

After fumbling her answer at the Miss USA Pageant, Miss Utah Marissa Powell gotten a few chances to redeem herself. Her near-nonsense answer had to do with the gender wage gap, and yesterday, she appeared on “The Today Show” for another chance at answering coherently. However, I find this video much more satisfying: Miss Utah partook…

It takes a lot of time — like hours and hours — to watch movies. So on last night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Jimmy Kimmel decided to do us all a solid and create a film that encapsulated, well, every movie ever. “Movie: The Movie: 2V” is actually the sequel to last year’s equally bombastic “Movie:…

Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel have had a longstanding feud, stemming from Damon getting bumped from Kimmel’s show, like, a zillion times.
