Chelsea Handler’s ideal night in, according to her responses to EW‘s Pop Culture Personality Test? Drooling over Christian Bale, quoting Pretty Woman, and watching her favorite summer blockbuster: Jaws, a movie to which the comedian has a surprising connection.

Discover the truth in the clip below—and feel free to start plotting a way to convince Handler to stop by for an impromptu Spielberg film festival. After all, she’ll have a lot more time on her hands six weeks from now, when Chelsea Lately ends its seven-year run on E! (but before she launches her all-new Netflix talk show in 2016). Bonus: Stick around after her personality test results to learn about Handler’s childhood nickname… as well as the psychological damage it caused.

Chelsea Handler addresses next move rumors on 'Conan' -- VIDEO

Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea Lately will end in 2014 after an eight-year run. As a result, Handler’s been the subject of many a rumor about what she’s planning to do next.

But don’t believe everything you read. On Monday night, Chelsea stopped by Conan to clarify that despite reports about a move to CBS or Netflix, she hasn’t actually made any decisions about what she’s doing after Chelsea Lately: “Everything that’s printed about me is a lie.” (Note to readers: This post is not a lie.)

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.

Lindsay Lohan on 'Chelsea Lately' is giggly and self-deprecating

Chalk it up to the benefit of lowered expectations: Lindsay Lohan guest-hosted Chelsea Lately last night, and it was one of her best television appearance in the past few years.

Of course, that’s not saying much. But compared to her Matt Lauer interview/Saturday Night Live hosting gig in March 2012, where it seemed like nerves got the best of her, the actress looked healthy, landed a few good punchlines and, most encouragingly for Lohan fans, appeared genuinely happy to be in front of a camera that wasn’t tracking her movements in and out of a courthouse.

There was a little nervous laughter and stuttering during her opening monologue, which featured Lohan thanking the various people who’ve kept the tabloids in business while Lohan had been away on a “Court-ordered vacation in Malibu” the past 90 days, a.k.a. Anthony Weiner, Kanye, Justin Bieber and the royal baby (played by Chelsea sidekick Chuy, obviously). “How come when Kanye acts like an idiot he gets a gold record, but when I act like an idiot I get a police record?” a game Lohan asked the audience.

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.”

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.
