Nina Dobrev was one of the best dressed at the Met Gala on Monday night, and it took hard work for her to look so good. In an interview that aired last night on Conan, Nina spoke about getting sewn into the Donna Karan Atelier gown. Having something customized to one's body presents a few challenges, namely, using the restroom. Using the most polite terms, Vampire Diaries star Nina told host Conan O'Brien what it was like letting people know she needed a private moment.
Anchorman fans got a surprise treat on Conan last night when Will Ferrell showed up as his newscaster alter ego, Ron Burgundy. Dressed in his signature suit and mustache, "Ron" dazzled the crowd with a little jazz flute before brutally berating Conan O'Brien (paying particular attention to Conan's hair). It all led up to an even bigger surprise: at the end of the segment, Ferrell announced that an Anchorman sequel is definitely happening! As an added bonus, Judd Apatow is confirmed to produce, and stars Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner will reprise their roles as Ron's quirky news team. Watch the clip below!
The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson stopped by Conan last night to talk about the press tour for the movie, and he had some funny anecdotes to tell about the kind of signs fans hold at events to get his attention. Some people go a little too far and display some awkward messages, but perhaps maybe nothing is so awkward than the term that Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence discovered from the merging of their character's names, Katniss and Peeta. I'm actually shocked I hadn't realized it yet. Watch now.
Liam Hemsworth stopped by Conan last night to promote The Hunger Games, and he had a confession to make: he didn't actually see the movie before he did his extensive promotional tour. Hemsworth talked about how nerve-wracking it was to talk up the film without actually seeing it, and admitted that he was relieved when he finally viewed the finished product. The real fun though is when Conan asked Hemsworth what would happen if the movie had failed, and Hemsworth had some pretty extreme ideas.
John Krasinski stopped by Conan last night to chat about his new film Big Miracle, which opens today — check out our Big Miracle review! He also shared details about his ambitious, and slightly awkward, first date with Emily Blunt and how he broke the ice with Meryl Streep on their first day of shooting It's Complicated.
Julie Bowen may have an Emmy for her work on Modern Family, but she couldn't stop gushing about her costar Sofia Vergara during a chat with Conan O'Brien this week. She talks about how Vergara can do anything when the cameras are rolling, but really, the best part of this video is Bowen's spot-on impression of Vergara's accent. Watch!
Crazy, Stupid, Love star Emma Stone told Conan O'Brien last night that she usually brings family members along to award shows and special events. Sometimes, however, her relatives get a little too chatty. Emma recalled a particular story from the Golden Globes, where her mom leaned over to have a conversation with Angelina Jolie about her children!
Ryan Reynolds may hold People's Sexiest Man Alive title under his belt, but the Green Lantern star hasn't always been confident around the ladies. Ryan told Conan O'Brien last night that up until he was 18 he "looked like a Vietnamese girl" and that he had a terrible time with girls in his younger years. He even shares an awkward story about his failed attempts at flirting with the fairer sex in elementary school. Watch the clip to hear what he'd do to pick up girls!
Peter Sarsgaard, star of the upcoming Green Lantern, is happily married to actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, but as the actor explained to Conan, love didn't always come easily to him. Last night, Peter told his tale of heartbreak. Back in his college days, he discovered on Valentine's Day that his childhood sweetheart had left him for a North Carolina Tar Heel basketball player. As he recounts each precise detail about the demise of his first love, it becomes obvious that this experience left a mark on him. Fortunately, he was able to get over the initial rejection by going to a Tears for Fears concert.
We loved Melissa McCarthy's assertive character Megan in Bridesmaids, but we couldn't quite put our finger on who she reminded us of, until now. Melissa told Conan last night where her inspiration came from for the character, and you'll be surprised at who it is! Watch the interview as well as the hilarious airplane scene from the movie that features her and real-life husband Ben Falcone, aka "Air Marshall Jon."
