Best of Late Night TV: Jennifer Lawrence's 2 Most Embarrassing Moments, Justin Theroux's Eyebrow-Acting Contest
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Come dance with "The Tonight Show" Wednesday night to promote the final "Hunger Games" movie, and you had to know Jimmy Fallon was going to put her to work. They discussed their shared habit of falling down a lot, and Jen insisted it's not a shtick. She also shared her two most embarrassing stories, because Jen wouldn't be Jen without endearing, relatable anecdotes: The first involved a woman who was NOT Elizabeth Taylor, but Jen really thought she was; the other involved the real Francis Ford Coppola, her bare feet, and a revealed thong.
On to the dancing! Jen and Jimmy talked about how there's this instructional dance video that airs on QVC at 3 a.m., featuring two dancers who look a lot like the two of them. Cue the "Come Dance With Us!" video, with J&J rocking some amazingly outrageous outfits (those sleeves -- keep them) and showing off dance moves like "Lunchbox Salute," "Bowling Confetti," and "Disco Binoculars." Gold. Obviously, they should really make a dance video and put it on the market.
Speaking of Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth was on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," insisting that Jen does not fall down at purpose. "She is terrible at walking." He told a story of walking around in London with her when one of her heels broke down at the back of a theater. She also fell in Spain and Berlin. "I'm constantly surprised by how much she falls down without trying at all." He just said she's "a clumsy, clumsy girl." Maybe she should skip the long gowns and only wear flats?
Jimmy Kimmel spoofed the extension of the "Fast & Furious" franchise with more prequels and spinoffs by showing a (fake) new trailer from the perspective of fuzzy dice:
Justin Theroux -- who is CRUSHING it over on "The Leftovers" -- was on "The Late Show" and challenged Stephen Colbert to an eyebrow-acting contest. Love it.
This sounds odd, but it's kind of touching. John Cleese told an interesting story about his mother, who was an anxious and depressed woman with a black sense of humor. That was the way he could communicate with her. He didn't want her to be depressed but she'd be "a little bit down this week" for "50 f--king years." To try and cheer her up, he had a moment of inspiration that was a high point of his creativity. When she was about 92, she gave him all these reasons why she didn't want to go on living. He said, if she still feels this way next week, he has a friend in Fulham he can call and he could come down and kill her. She was surprised, then howled with laughter. Justin Bieber did Carpool Karaoke with James Corden before, but here's "Vol. 2," featuring a very interesting conversation about the origin of the "Beliebers."
Last but not least, here are Anthony Mackie and Rainn Wilson talking about their wives. Rainn just celebrated 20 years of marriage. (!) Anthony said he met his wife when he was 7. "She was the meanest person in the world." She used to beat him up and take his lunch money. They got together when he was 28, after they hadn't seen each other in about 20 years.
