Jimmy Kimmel has been anything but shy about his animosity toward Jay Leno over the years, but exactly how deeply he dislikes the Tonight Show host is made evident in a recent article by Rolling Stone.
In the magazine’s cover story, Kimmel — whose late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live will find itself in direct timeslot competition with Leno and David Letterman starting Jan. 8 — is quoted as saying a host of harsh comments about Leno, with whom he has publicly panned in the past.

Did Samuel L. Jackson really lob an f-bomb on Saturday Night Live last weekend — or did he actually just say “fuh,” like he’s asserted since the incident?
Judging by video from the live telecast, it sure sounds like there was a “k” after that “fuh” — but according to the curse-happy actor, the only reason we’re questioning him is because SNL cast member Kenan Thompson didn’t cut him off fast enough during the sketch. (Warning: Sensitive language ahead, naturally.)
The Twitterverse can finally stop buzzing about Eric Stonestreet’s “boozy” American Music Awards appearance! The Modern Family star cleared the air on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, declaring “I was not drunk, I was tipsy. There’s a difference.”
After Jimmy Kimmel played a clip of his presentation speech, Stonestreet second-guessed himself. “Boy, that’s the first time I saw it and wow, is that guy drunk or what?”

As President Barack Obama concluded his last day of campaigning, Robert Pattinson sat down with Jimmy Kimmel last night in one of his final Twilight promotional appearances. Pattinson noted that he first learned about the president during his first promotional tour for the franchise when Obama was running for his first term in office. If only Pattinson was up for four more years as well.
The British heartthrob stayed true to his quirky talk-show persona by discussing shoes, skydiving, and loud kissing — a notable upgrade from his last Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance in late August when he talked about Craigslist, dogging, and prostate exams.
The dapper star opened the interview by talking about his over-sized shoes. He then tucked his legs underneath him in the armchair and later sat cross-legged to distract the audience from their size. When Kimmel asked how he was able to walk in his “clown shoes,” Pattinson said the task was daunting. “I just had a little bit of vodka backstage. It is not a good combination.”

Watching Jimmy Kimmel interview David Letterman last night was sort of like seeing a space-obsessed teenager interview Neil Armstrong in 1970. Kimmel’s vast admiration for the late night vet is no secret — he’s spoken often about how Letterman inspired him to pursue a career in television. Dave-love even drove a teenage Kimmel to get a vanity license plate that read “L8 NITE” — and to have a Late Night-themed cake at his 18th birthday party.
Put simply, Letterman is Kimmel’s idol. And accordingly, Kimmel spent most of the interview half-joking about how badly he wants to be Letterman’s best friend. Over the course of 18-ish minutes, Kimmel did his best to convince Letterman that they share common interests and invited the famously curmudgeonly comedian to join him for several activities — fly fishing, barbecuing, a party “just [for] the two of us.”
And Letterman — who freely admits that he doesn’t really have friends, since “people don’t like [him]“– took the whole thing in stride. The Late Night host tossed out a self-deprecating remark every time Kimmel praised him, occasionally lobbing back a few genial barbs without ever outright calling Kimmel creepy. READ FULL STORY
Jimmy Kimmel and Michelle Obama get along famously — even if the comedian does resent the First Lady’s attempts to replace all corn dogs with cauliflower. Both know what it’s like to try to wrangle uncooperative kids; Obama has even perfected the method of disciplining Sasha and Malia without moving her lips, so that cameras don’t notice it. Both also enjoy Halloween, though Kimmel is convinced that Obama must “force vegetables down [the] throats” of those who visit the White House during its annual spooktacular.
But these pals don’t agree about one important topic: whether the pros of being First Lady outweigh the cons. While Kimmel knows what it’s like to be famous, he’d hate to be that famous — not to mention constantly surrounded by Secret Service. Obama, though, is all in, despite the position’s drawbacks. “When Barack talked about entering the politics … I was very hesitant,” she told Kimmel on his show last night. “Your life is no longer your own. How do you raise your kids? But then I thought about the kind of person that I would want to lead the country, and I felt that to deny him that right would be selfish.”
Check out Michelle’s full appearance — which also includes a few hints about what she wears when she’s trying to go incognito — below.
Bristol Palin and her Dancing With the Stars partner Mark Ballas visited Jimmy Kimmel Live last night after being voted off the reality competition. Kimmel thanked her for being such a good sport and making the obligatory appearance, considering he’s made “one or two” jokes about Sarah Palin over the years.
“I’m here for my apology,” Bristol responded. When she didn’t accept Kimmel’s halfhearted “I’m sorry,” he gave her permission to insult his own mother.
The highlight of the interview, however, was Kimmel’s poetic introduction of Bristol (“Like a majestic wild moose suddenly felled by a rifle’s blast, tonight our next guest’s dream of dance domination fell to earth with a tragic thud”), which was likely a jab at her mother’s use of wildlife metaphors to describe last week’s vice presidential debate. So much for that apology.
