Jennifer Aniston is on the hunt for a new man, less than a year after splitting from Justin Theroux. Friends say she’s relying on A-List pals Jason Bateman, Courtney Cox, and Jimmy Kimmel to set her up with Mr. Right. She wants to find love before turning 50 on February 11.
The Oscars had been struggling to find a host for its 2019 broadcast — but landed on Kevin Hart. Following lackluster ratings and the La La Land Best Picture snafu, A-listers aren’t clamoring for the top emcee spot.
The Hollywood Reporter says that everyone who’s anyone had turned it down, including Oprah, Justin Timberlake, Julia Louis-Drefyus, Jerry Seinfeld, and even Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as a team effort, who successfully helmed the Golden Globes a few years back.
The job requires weeks of work for a paltry low-six figures; the media, critics and fans inevitably rip the host to shreds; and the show does little to make the host more visible or famous.
Kid Rock is Michigan’s newest senator…according to Jimmy Kimmel. The late-night TV host pranked some unknowing pedestrians by telling them that the rocker had won a senate seat. After hearing the fake news about the election, one interviewee said “I did hear a little bit about it today in the morning. I didn’t go too much into detail, but I did see it on my phone.” Jimmy’s team went all out, playing videos from one of Kid’s concerts and saying it was a victory speech and discussing the performer’s platform.
