Chelsea Handler: 'I'm not racist. I date a lot of black people' -- VIDEO

Despite what her Oscar tweets may have indicated, Chelsea Handler is emphatically not a racist — at least, according to Chelsea Handler.

“People are mad at me all the time. If I was worried about that, then I would be spending a lot of time online. I’d rather be a little bit more productive,” she explained to George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Tuesday, after he brought up her controversial Academy Award-night comments — including this message about Sunday’s Best Supporting Actress winner: “#AngelinaJolie just filed adoption papers #lupitanyongo #Oscars -@chelseahandler.”

Okay, cool! Thanks for clearing that up, Chelsea. This would be the perfect time to change the subject. Right? Right?

Yeah, no. “I’m not racist,” the comedian continued, laughing as though the very idea were utterly ludicrous. “I date a lot of black people, so that would be a difficult thing to explain to them.” Palm, meet face.

Tom Hiddleston reveals he wanted to play Thor, not Loki -- VIDEO

Would a Loki played by any other English actor be as dark and dastardly?

Tom Hiddleston revealed that Loki, nemesis of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, wasn’t his first choice. He originally auditioned for the role of Thor, he told Chelsea Handler on last night’s Chelsea Lately. Hiddleston even beefed up for the Thor try-outs, bulking up from 180 lbs. to 198 lbs., to which Handler replied, “I mean it was pretty stupid to do that before the audition.”

But try as he might, the hammer-wielding, prince of Asgard role just wasn’t meant to be. “They were always looking for Loki as well, and I think — the closer I got, they were like, ‘Actually, you should play the bad guy,’” he said.

Handler seemed more concerned with the actor’s bodily transformation and physical stats. Her assessment? “You’re good, everything’s good.” We concur.

Jennifer Aniston denies she's a nudist -- VIDEO

If you can’t trust Star magazine, what can you trust?

Jennifer Aniston swung by pal Chelsea Handler’s show last night to promote We’re the Millers, which, as everyone is already no doubt aware, has everybody’s some people’s favorite former Friend playing a stripper. But instead of talking about that, Handler whipped out an issue of Star and proceeded to read from it that Aniston, along with fiance Justin Theroux, is now a nudist. Cue Aniston’s bemused expression, followed by a surprisingly-not-convincing denial.

Does Star magazine know something we don’t? (Unlikely.) Is this all just an elaborate bit to get you thinking about naked Jennifer Aniston, starring in a new sexy movie this very weekend? (Likely.)

Patrick Wilson calls 'Girls' backlash 'awful' and 'ridiculous' -- VIDEO

It has been five months, six days, and around 19 hours since HBO aired “One Man’s Trash,” a.k.a. “that episode of Girls where Patrick Wilson and Lena Dunham have all the sex” — yet somehow, we’re still talking about it.

To be more accurate: Patrick Wilson himself discussed the episode on Chelsea Lately last night, saying that he found all the chatter about “One Man’s Trash” — specifically, the chorus of people incensed by the idea that someone who looks like Wilson would hook up with someone who looks like Dunham — both “awful” and “ridiculous.”

After joking that he and the Girls multihyphenate had had “actual sex” on camera, Wilson got down to business: “It’s one thing for someone to talk about, ‘I would never believe a character like yours would do that,’” he told Handler. “But all of a sudden, people were tweeting, ‘Patrick Wilson would never have sex with this kind of woman.’ I mean, it was brutal.”

Check out 10 now-famous comedians in their early days of stand-up

Patton Oswalt posted a clip on Twitter of his first acting gig at the tender age of 19. The seasoned actor-comedian may not totally appreciate the look back at his performing roots — a faux stand-up routine that doubles as an educational video on college loans — but fans and viewers are sure to be amused by not just the look back at the then-baby-faced Oswalt but also the totally outrageous early 90s fashion. Every comedian started somewhere — often on a dark stage in awesomely dated clothes.

Watch his set below and check out the stand-up routines (and the fashions!) from some of your favorite comedians. (Some  videos may be NSFW due to explicit language.) READ FULL STORY

Conan O'Brien and Chelsea Handler get slap-happy in the shower... naked -- NSFW VIDEO

Breaking news: Conan O’Brien has abs!

On last night’s episode of Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler had a very special guest: Late night’s favorite freakishly tall redhead, who wasn’t exactly sitting across from her in front of a live audience. Instead, in the sketch that echoed Handler’s stunt with Sandra Bullock, a naked Conan O’Brien walked in on Chelsea in the staff showers and started to pick a fight. According to Conan, Chelsea stole his studio (which includes the shower and its ah-mazing water pressure), his parking space, and his back massager.

After debating Chelsea’s nether regions, the argument resulted in a lot of slapping, a brief discussion about Joan Rivers, two black eyes, and one very naked Chuy. Oddly enough, what didn’t happen was anything shower-related.

Will Ferrell crashes 'Chelsea Lately' in a golf cart

The new Chelsea Lately multimillion-dollar studio is paying its way with viral moments. Since Chelsea Handler’s move to the former set of The Tonight Show With Conan on Monday, she’s scored Jennifer Aniston’s first post-engagement interview and discussed her nipples, showered with Sandra Bullock, and now, been dissed by Will Ferrell.

Ferrell, clad in a baseball jersey and Ron Burgundy’s mustache, rolled in last night in a golf cart and interrupted Handler’s usually productive roundtable discussion. The comedian insulted the late-night talk show, then attempted to go on his merry way. His surprise appearance left the usually straight-faced Handler in stitches. “I can’t take him,” she said after he left. “I can’t take his body or when he talks.”

Calling her show “a joke” must be the The Campaign star’s means of avenging Handler after she insulted his sexual prowess during his last appearance on the show.

Chelsea Handler and Sandra Bullock get very naked in shower intervention -- VIDEO

Forget Jennifer Aniston’s nipples — you can see Chelsea Handler’s everything in this comedy bit, which aired on last night’s Chelsea Lately. The pre-taped sketch shows a very naked Sandra Bullock surprising a very naked Handler in the shower, giving her a few good slaps, and asking her to get her s— together. Specifically, Bullock wants the blonde to be a better role model, lay off the booze, and stop sleeping with her guests. The Oscar winner also advises Handler to stop urinating in front of her: “We don’t make pee-pee in showers anymore. We make pee-pee in the potty.”

Yeah, that happened. Also worth noting: Handler says that while Bullock wore a nude thong and pasties during filming, she herself was totally naked. Somehow, we believe it. See the sketch for yourself below. Warning: You’re in for a whole lot of side-boob action. READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Aniston gets 'verklempt' while talking engagement on 'Chelsea Lately' -- VIDEO

Jennifer Aniston will always be America’s sweetheart. Just look at the way her face scrunches up in glee when Chelsea Handler asks her about her engagement to Justin Theroux — it’s downright adorable. And how many 43-year-old women can legitimately claim to be adorable? When she gets teary, you just want to give her a hug, then invite her over to watch season 3 of Friends with you. Even tart-tongued Handler broke character to celebrate her pal last night: “He’s the greatest guy ever, and you guys make the greatest couple ever, and I’m so happy for you too.” So are we! Hooray! Let’s get yogurt!!

Of course, the host did also call Jen out for tending to wear shirts that show off her nipples… so maybe the praise party only goes so far. Check out both moments in the videos below. And for the record — yeah, you can kinda see some headlights in the second clip.
