Saturday Night Live has celebrated its 40th anniversary with a three-hour special featuring guests like Jack Nicholson and Robert De Niro.
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake kicked off the anniversary show with a medley of music, catchphrases and characters.
Steve Martin, Taylor Swift, Tom Hanks, Paul McCartney, Melissa McCarthy and Keith Richards also joined the party.
Paul McCartney performed an impromptu duet of I’ve Just Seen A Face with Paul Simon.
Other musical guests included Kanye West and Miley Cyrus.
“Tonight is like an enormous high school reunion,” 15-time host Steve Martin said as the show began.
SNL has become a TV institution and numerous cast members – including Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, Amy Poehler, Adam Sandler and Kristen Wiig – have gone on to carve out Hollywood careers.
Creator Lorne Michaels is widely regarded as one of the most revered producers in the business.
“If Lorne didn’t have good taste, this would have gone away a long time ago,” said Mike Myers, whose Wayne’s World skit with Dana Carvey – which he reprised on Sunday – inspired the 1990s comedy film of the same name.
Robert De Niro proclaimed that SNL is “still at it”, adding: “Forty years! That’s like back when TV was still watched on TV.”
A montage of audition tapes, including disappointing ones from Jim Carrey and Stephen Colbert, were also shown.
A spoof news team made up of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Jane Curtin appeared together for the Weekend Update, with the top story being none other than the SNL anniversary.
“Viewers of Saturday Night Live span several generations,” Tina Fey reported.
“From the Baby Boomers to Generation X all the way to whatever you call the little dummies who are live-tweeting this right now instead of watching it.”
Jimmy Fallon managed to escape unharmed after he was reportedly caught up in a bar fight in New York City on Thursday night.
The Tonight Show host is said to have joined a group of friends and colleagues for a post-work outing at Manhattan bar Niagara when a brawl broke out among other patrons.
Jimmy Fallon and his group were caught up in the chaos, but managed to escape without injury, according to the New York Post.

“Fallon was pretty shaken up,” a source close to him told the New York Daily News.
“He was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and chaos erupted around him.”
The popular rock club in East Village is operated by area musicians, including solo artist Jesse Malin and Johnny “T” Yerrington, who has drummed with Ryan Adams’ band. The grungy Avenue A hot spot is marked by an exterior mural of former Clash front man Joe Strummer with the caption “The future is unwritten”.
A source close to Jimmy Fallon, 39, said he stopped by Niagara just as a band was wrapping up and the fight was breaking out.
A witness said Jimmy Fallon was peripherally involved in the 10:30 p.m. imbroglio, but his connection to the combatants, if any, remained unclear.
In his debut at Late Night, former Saturday Night Live head writer Seth Meyers began with a quick tribute to Jimmy Fallon, his former castmate, by imitating his “Thank You Notes” segment.
Seth Meyers thanked Jimmy Fallon for moving on to The Tonight Show so that he could take his job. Then he self-deprecatingly promised to use the show only for “completely original comedy pieces” – as soon as the current one was over.
After a frenetic opening written by Fred Armisen, another SNL alum, Seth Meyers walked out to deliver his writing team’s unflashy but exceptionally well-made jokes.
Almost half were about politics, including this one about a 101-year-old candidate: “He has a good chance of appealing to younger viewers, since that’s all there is.”
Seth Meyers doesn’t seem prone to dumbing his humor down: His first bit was about Venn diagrams. But he could also be breezily likeable, as when he told a story about a man in a diner changing the tire of his and his wife’s car, while Seth Meyers held their small, shivering greyhound.
Seth Meyers began his first episode of Late Night with a quick tribute to Jimmy Fallon
On his first night, Seth Meyers felt almost like a pre-David Letterman talk show host, going for straightforward jokes over irony and stunts. Even his set is low-key, almost soothing, full of metallic blues.
His first guest was Amy Poehler – yet another SNL colleague, and one of his best friends. The second guest was Vice President Joe Biden, who had an easy rapport with Amy Poehler after guesting on her show, Parks & Recreation.
Joe Biden, a likely 2016 presidential contender, joked that he was “planning a major announcement tonight – but I decided tonight was your night”.
Seth Meyers then asked Amy Poehler about her 2016 plans.
“I’m running for president,” she said.
Amy Poehler did have a real announcement: Broad City, the Comedy Central show she executive produces, will return for a second season. She also talked about hosting a Golden Globe party, where Joaquin Phoenix was an exceptionally hard-to-read first guest.
Weeks before Jimmy Fallon is set to inherit Jay Leno’s on-again, off-again late night throne, he’s still erring toward humble and gracious.
Jimmy Fallon feted his predecessor Jay Leno as the nicest guy in the business
As a guest on Jay Leno’s fourth-to-last Tonight Show ever Monday, Jimmy Fallon feted his predecessor as ”the nicest guy in the business” — before launching into a “thank-you note” bit that celebrated Jay.
Jimmy Fallon officially handed-off the traditional Late Night giant plastic pickle to Seth Meyers on Tuesday’s show.
The pickle was given to Jimmy Fallon by previous Late Night host Conan O’Brien in 2009.
Conan O’Brien received the pickle from David Letterman’s staff in 1993. Before that, the giant plastic pickle was a staple decoration in the Letterman offices.
A few days before Jimmy Fallon’s first Late Night on March 2, 2009, the charming comedian shared the pickle’s tale and a sweet letter from his predecessor in an online video.
“Whenever you’re done – which won’t be for a long time – make sure you pass it on to the next sap,” Conan O’Brien penned and Jimmy Fallon read aloud.
“Knock ’em dead.”
Jimmy Fallon officially handed-off the traditional Late Night giant plastic pickle to Seth Meyers
Jimmy Fallon opined at the time: “It just kind of put everything in perspective, even though I’m holding a giant pickle …What a great tradition this is and what a great honor that I’m following in the footsteps of these great comedians.”
Seth Meyers takes over Late Night on February 24, when his first guest will be former SNL colleague Amy Poehler.
Jimmy Fallon’s first Tonight Show is a week earlier, with guests Will Smith and U2.
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon – soon to be Late Night With Seth Meyers – airs on NBC at 12:35 a.m. ET.
Bruce Springsteen has mocked New Jersey’s embattled governor Chris Christie on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show.
Bruce Springsteen joined show host Jimmy Fallon for a duet sending up a scandal embroiling the governor.
It has recently been revealed Chris Christie’s senior staff orchestrated a traffic jam at the foot of a major bridge in an act of apparent political payback.
Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Fallon sang a parody duet to the tune of Born to Run.
“You got Wall Street masters stuck cheek-to-cheek with blue collar truckers/ and man I really got to take a leak, but I can’t, I’m stuck in Governor Chris Christie’s Fort Lee, New Jersey, traffic jam,” Bruce Springsteen sang.
“Some day governor, I don’t know when, this will all end. But ’til then you’re killing the working man who’s stuck in the Governor Chris Christie Fort Lee, New Jersey, traffic jam,” the two sang in duet.
Bruce Springsteen joined show host Jimmy Fallon for a duet sending up a scandal embroiling Governor Chris Christie
Chris Christie is an avowed Bruce Springsteen fan – he has admitted weeping after receiving a hug from Springsteen, one of the state’s most famous sons, at a 2012 concert.
The parody came just hours after Chris Christie pledged to co-operate with inquiries into the scandal, which has threatened his political future.
“We let down the people we are entrusted to serve,” he said in a major speech on Tuesday, referring obliquely to the row known as “Bridgegate”.
Chris Christie had previously been seen as a top early contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
“I am the governor and I am ultimately responsible for all that happens on my watch – both good and bad,” he said.
Investigations by the New York and New Jersey news media and by Chris Christie’s Democratic political opponents indicate the governor’s top aides ordered the closure of two local lanes from the town of Fort Lee on to the George Washington Bridge, which connects New Jersey to Manhattan, last summer.
Duck Dynasty’s stars Willie, Jep and Uncle Si Robertson were on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, but family patriarch Phil was not.
Perhaps that’s why the guys decided to reveal that Phil Robertson was originally against the idea of the family signing on to do a reality show.
“We always thought there may be something there, and we just got an email out of the blue said, <<Hey, I think you guys may have a big show>>,” Willie Robertson said.
“And so I went to talk to dad and said, <<We could do a big show on a network>>. And he said, <<Nah, that won’t work>>.”
Duck Dynasty’s stars Willie, Jep and Uncle Si Robertson appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday night
Willie Robertson then added: “I remind him of that every week, though.”
The latest season premiere of Duck Dynasty broke cable ratings records, pulling in 11.8 million viewers. And the overwhelming success of the show has allowed the Robertson clan to branch out into many other areas. They have several books in print, including Uncle Si’s just-released biography, as well as a myriad of other Duck Dynasty products.
The family is even set to release a Christmas album called Duck the Halls.
Willie Robertson promised Jimmy Fallon that the songs will “blow your pants off”. That one’s going to have to be heard to be believed.
Duck Dynasty airs every Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on A&E.
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon airs every weeknight at 12:37 a.m. ET on NBC.
Bruce Jenner turned an interview with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night into a point scoring exercise.
Bruce Jenner, 63, was meant to be promoting the eight season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon but what started out as jokes about their feud – and did get a lot of laughs from the talk show host – turned into an awkward interview long discussion of Bruce’s grievances.
Despite claiming: “I am from the Kardashian group. We can take anything” as the sportsman made jokes his anger was obvious.
The beef between the reality star and Jimmy Fallon started last year during the Olympics.
Jimmy Fallon had been making jokes about Bruce Jenner’s plastic surgery – the star has gone under the knife a number of times including on Keeping Up With The Kardashians – and when the pair ran into each other after a London event, reportedly Bruce demanded the host ‘stop saying s-t’ about his appearance.
But Bruce Jenner has not buried the hatchet it seems.
Bruce Jenner turned an interview with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night into a point scoring exercise
He started the segment by complaining comedians just use bad pictures of him – before showing “bad” pictures of Jimmy Fallon.
“I’m not trying to hide anything here,” Bruce Jenner told the host, saying he could take a joke.
“I had it done on camera in our show.”
But the Olympian made sure Jimmy Fallon knew he had some muscle behind him.
“I can take it but Kanye [West] is really pissed,” Kim Kardashian’s step father said whispering into the host’s ear.
“My good friend, Kanye, and you don’t want to go there.”
Not content to just threaten the funny man with the wrath of Kanye West, Bruce Jenner also tried to insult Jimmy Fallon’s appearance.
“You can make all the jokes you want but I can guarantee you, Mr. Fallon, my ass in a pair of running shorts looks a hell of a lot better than your ass.”
“I would agree with you, and I am sincerely sorry,” Jimmy Fallon said after eight minutes of Bruce Jenner’s angry jokes.
Tom Cruise let his guard down for the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Friday as he played a game of egg roulette with the show host and lost.
Tom Cruise, 50, picked from an assortment of raw and boiled eggs for the gag, and found out soon in the game things were about to get really messy.
The actor and the show host took turns picking from a carton holding eight boiled eggs and four raw eggs and smashed their chosen egg against their head. The game ends when someone breaks two raw eggs on their head and loses.
Tom Cruise went first and promptly smashed a raw egg against his hair, prompting Jimmy Fallon to double over in laughter.
“I told you I didn’t have a good feeling about this, man,” Tom Cruise told Jimmy Fallon with a smile.
Tom Cruise let his guard down for the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Friday as he played a game of egg roulette with the show host and lost
Jimmy Fallon went next and picked a hard-boiled egg.
Tom Cruise on his second pick again chose a raw egg and broke it against his head.
It wasn’t the first time that Tom Cruise and Jimmy Fallon squared off.
They went eye-to-eye last December in a Water War game, which is based on the card game War and includes lots of water.
The winner of each hand got to douse his opponent with a cup of water and the first to run out of cups won the right to blast the loser with a toy water cannon.
Tom Cruise won and thoroughly drenched Jimmy Fallon.
The Hollywood star has been making the talk show circuit lately to promote his new sci-film Oblivion.
Tom Cruise visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night and also took part in a skit.
Jimmy Kimmel gave Tom Cruise an acting challenge by having him deliver ridiculous lines in a dramatic overtone.
“Is there a way to get the soup and the salad?” Tom Cruise asked as he was illuminated on the couch with a spotlight.
The actor ended the dramatic query with his patented muscle-flurrying jaw clench.
In his new movie, Oblivion, Tom Cruise plays Jack Harper, a former Marine commander, in the sci-fi flick set in a not-too-distant future of 2073.
Jack Harper is stationed on a fallen Earth following an alien invasion 60 years earlier.
The character comes across an enigmatic stranger played by Olga Kurylenko who crash lands in a spacecraft and Jack Harper is forced to question what he knows about Earth’s near-destruction and life as he knows it.
Oblivion also features British star Andrea Riseborough, Melissa Leo and Morgan Freeman and opens on April 19.
Jay Leno will reportedly receive a $15 million payoff as he steps down as host of NBC’s The Tonight Show months ahead of the end of his contract.
The payout is part of Jay Leno’s deal to leave The Tonight Show – which he has hosted for 22 years – before his contract expires in September 2014, making way for Jimmy Fallon as the new host.
According to the New York Daily News, the payoff – which equates to Jay Leno’s annual salary on the show – is peanuts for the comedian, who makes the biggest bucks for standup in Las Vegas.
As the shake-up was confirmed after weeks of speculation, Jay Leno told Jimmy Fallon he was “counting on” him to keep network ratings high.
In his opening monologue of Wednesday’s show Jay Leno said: “I just have one request of Jimmy. We’ve all fought, kicked and scratched to get this network up to fifth place, okay?
“Now we have to keep it there. Jimmy don’t let it slip into sixth. We’re counting on you.”
Jay Leno will reportedly receive a $15 million payoff as he steps down as host of NBC’s The Tonight Show months ahead of the end of his contract
The replacement move, which had been anticipated for weeks, was announced yesterday and will officially take place following NBC’s broadcast of the Winter Olympics.
Jimmy Fallon will more than double his multi-million dollar salary when he takes over from outgoing host Jay Leno next year on The Tonight Show.
Industry insiders predict that Jimmy Fallon will see the $5 million he gets for fronting The Late Show boosted to $12 million when he goes head-to-head with CBS’ David Letterman and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel in February.
Although Jimmy Fallon’s pay packet will be 3 million less than the $15 million Jay Leno takes home, it still represents a massive show of faith in Fallon, who has been working late night television for less than 5 years.
Jay Leno 62, who was temporarily removed from The Tonight Show in 2009 in favor of Conan O’Brien, had made repeated jokes about his bosses and the network in recent weeks while rumors swirled over the latest move.
But he and Jimmy Fallon, 38, presented a united front while announcing the news. They recently made a parody video set to a tune from West Side Story that lampooned their situation.
“The main difference between this and the other time is I’m part of the process. The last time the decision was made without me. I came into work one day and – you’re out,” Jay Leno said, comparing his previous ouster and now.
“This time around there really aren’t any complications like there were the last time,” he added, according to the New York Times.
“This time it feels right.”
Jay Leno also said in a press release: “Congratulations Jimmy. I hope you’re as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you’re the old guy. If you need me, I’ll be at the garage.”
The Tonight Show will be relocated from Los Angeles to New York, where the program started in 1954 when Steve Allen was its host.
Jay Leno – aside from the brief interruption when Conan O’Brien hosted the program – has been the show’s presenter since 1992.
He has routinely been tops in the ratings, even as NBC’s primetime and daytime programming has fallen off.
“I’m glad I’ve kept it No. 1,” Jay Leno said.
“When I started people said, <<Oh the only reason you’re winning is because of ‘ER>>, or <<The only reason you’re winning is because Hugh Grant came on and said that one thing>>. Well, at least now I can say the only reason we’re winning is cause we’re winning.”
After leaving, Jay Leno said he expects to be “back on the road, being a comedian again”.
Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels, who also produces Late Night, will take over as producer of the new Tonight Show.
Jimmy Fallon’s replacement at 12:35 a.m. was not named, although Seth Meyers of SNL is considered a strong candidate.
NBC is worried that ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel, whose show recently started at the 11:35 p.m. time slot, will establish himself as a go-to late night performer for a younger generation if the network didn’t move swiftly to install Jimmy Fallon.
Jay Leno will be replaced by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, NBC has officially announced.
The move in February 2014, which was widely anticipated, will see the show relocate from Los Angeles to New York.
NBC also said Lorne Michaels, the renowned producer of Saturday Night Live, will produce The Tonight Show.
Jay Leno will be replaced by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show
NBC head Steve Burke said the network was making the change while the show was at the peak of its ratings.
“Jimmy Fallon is a unique talent and this is his time,” Steve Burke said.
NBC used the same strategy when handing the show over to Jay Leno from Johnny Carson, its previous host.
Jimmy Fallon will reportedly begin on The Tonight Show during NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics, when the network expects to see a spike in its audience.
Correspondents say NBC executives were concerned a rival late-night show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on the ABC network would make gains among the crucial younger audience if Jimmy Fallon’s move did not happen quickly.
This is the second time in recent years NBC has sought to replace Jay Leno, who has hosted The Tonight Show from Los Angeles since 1992.
In 2009, NBC handed the show over to Conan O’Brien, but the move backfired and the network reinstalled Jay Leno.
This time, Jay Leno has congratulated Jimmy Fallon on the promotion.
“I hope you’re as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you’re the old guy,” Jay Leno said in a statement.
“If you need me, I’ll be at the garage.”
Meanwhile, in a reference to his current show Late Nightwith Jimmy Fallon, which begins at 00:30 ET, Fallon said: “I’m really excited to host a show that starts today instead of tomorrow.”
A new report says the upcoming 2013-2014 season will be Jay Leno’s last behind the desk of The Tonight Show before he’s replaced by Jimmy Fallon.
Jimmy Fallon, who now hosts NBC’s Late Show, will be officially announced as the new host sometime in the summer of next year.
The Hollywood Reporter cited two anonymous “high-level industry sources” who say the network wants to bring in Jimmy Fallon in response to Jimmy Kimmel’s show moving to the 11:35 time slot in January.
“The more time Jimmy Kimmel is in that slot, the more the young audience goes that way, the harder it is for [Fallon] to keep that audience,” one source said.
Jay Leno has kept his spot on top of the late-night ratings, but Jimmy Kimmel is competitive in the coveted 18-49 demographic.
“Kimmel has done extremely well,” said one unnamed network veteran.
“Jay wins overall, but on any given night, it’s neck-and-neck in 18-49. I understand where they might have fear and also feel that they own the solution [in Jimmy Fallon.]”
NBC denied the story, while Jay Leno’s reps said “we do not speculate on rumor”.
The Hollywood Reporter noted that Jay Leno would likely be reluctant to leave, especially if he were forced to retire while longtime rival David Letterman remains on the air.
The two famously battled to follow Johnny Carson’s legendary tenure as host of the Tonight Show, with Jay Leno eventually winning the spot while David Letterman left NBC for CBS to start his own 11:35 show.
Their fight over the show was the basis for the non-fiction book, The Late Shift, which was adapted into a film of the same name by HBO in 1996.
Both hosts are signed through 2014.
A new report says the upcoming 2013-2014 season will be Jay Leno’s last behind the desk of The Tonight Show before he’s replaced by Jimmy Fallon
It’s also possible NBC is worried that if David Letterman does leave next year, CBS would be looking for a replacement host, potentially leading to a battle over Jimmy Fallon.
Late night comedy brawled over talent in 2010 when Jay Leno left the Tonight Show to host another show at 10. Six years prior, then NBC-head Jeff Zucker had promised then-Late Night host Conan O’Brien that he would get the Tonight Show as part of a deal to re-sign with the network.
But the strategy was a disaster. Jay Leno’s 10 p.m. show tanked in the ratings and Conan O’Brien’s Tonight Show struggled out of the gate against David Letterman. A year later Jay Leno was back, and NBC had gone through a costly and embarrassing debacle.
Conan O’Brien left the network and now hosts a show on TBS.
The network would also save money paying a far lower salary to Jimmy Fallon compared to the roughly $20 million per year Jay Leno makes.
If NBC does go through with ousting Jay Leno, one observer notes they will “get the benefit of selling Jay’s last year – again”.
Michelle Obama showed off her dancing moves during her Friday appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
First Lady Michelle Obama was a crowd favorite on the NBC comedy show and wasn’t afraid to get physical in front of the New York audience at the program’s studio at Rockefeller Center.
While in New York Michelle Obama was also interviewed by Good Morning America host Robin Roberts and health guru Dr Oz, as part of the celebration for the 3 year anniversary of her Let’s Move! campaign to fight childhood obesity.
In his opening monologue for the show, Jimmy Fallon said he planned to ask Michelle Obama if she thought he could pull of bangs, in reference to the hot topic of her new coiffure.
“She’s coming on the show to talk about her Let’s Move! initiative. Next week [New Jersey Governor] Chris Christie will be on the show to talk about his new initiative, Let’s Sit!” Jimmy Fallon joked.
Instead of starting out with an interview, Jimmy Fallon and his famous guest decided to break a sweat.
“In honor of the first lady’s Let’s Move campaign, and to encourage parents everywhere to get up and get moving with their kids, Jimmy Fallon and Michelle Obama present the Evolution of Mom Dancing,” the show’s announcer Steve Higgins said.
Jimmy Fallon donned capri khaki pants and a matronly pink cardigan, with white Keds sneakers and a wig, to get in the mood and show off his dance mom moves with Michelle Obama.
Michelle Obama channeled her mom coolness in black capri jeans, pink ballet slippers and a bright green cardigan.

The mashup of moves performed by the pair included hilarious gestures like “Go Shopping, Get Groceries”, “Raise the Roof”, the “Hip Bump”, “Just the Hands Part of Single Ladies” and the “Driving the Station Wagon”.
After the aerobic exercise, Michelle Obama changed into a brightly colored sleeves, silk dress for her sit down chat.
The first lady dished on her pop culture favorites including her love of Beyoncé and her daughter’s help in introducing her to new music like Elle Varner and Frank Ocean.
Admitting that the Bravo reality show, Real Housewives, is among her guilty pleasures, she did say she has not yet watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Despite not watching the TLC show, Michelle Obama did praise cast member June “Mama” Shannon – who recently lost more than 100 lbs.
During her interview, Jimmy Fallon inquired after the first lady’s plan once her husband leaves the White House in 2016.
Jimmy Fallon, 38, asked if she would be interested in a Michelle-Hillary ticket for president in 2016, as speculation swirls that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has her eye on the Oval Office.
“You know, I have my eye actually on another job. And I hear that when Jay Leno retires that The Tonight Show position is going to open and I’m thinking about putting my hat in the ring,” she joked.
Jimmy Fallon quipped: “I got my hat in the ring” about replacing the NBC host.
Michelle Obama’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show was the finale to her busy day doing the media rounds.
Robert Pattinson donned his nicest suit while promoting the upcoming and final installment of Twilight franchise on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show.
Robert Pattinson and Jimmy Fallon played a silly game called Water Wars which involved them basically taking it in turns to chuck glasses of water into each other’s faces.
Mischievous host Jimmy Fallon got so wet his white shirt was completely soaked through.
Robert Pattinson, who is dating co-star Kristen Stewart, 22, seemed to come out of the water fight marginally better off though his suit was still sodden.
His face and hair were also left given a thorough dousing and by the end the British star was left looking resigned to his fate and a little sheepish.
Robert Pattinson and Jimmy Fallon played a silly game called Water Wars which involved them basically taking it in turns to chuck glasses of water into each other’s faces
This isn’t the first time recently Robert Pattinson’s behavior has been somewhat bizarre while promoting Breaking Dawn-Part 2.
While on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show on Tuesday he appeared to be drunk and admitted to the chat show host that he had “had a little vodka backstage”.
Robert Pattinson, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the smash hit films, also slurred his words and jumped about excitedly trying to hide his too-big “clown” shoes.
Despite being a bit tipsy though his interview was still engaging and Robert Pattinson admitted that even though he gets to travel the world, he is so busy promoting his movies that he doesn’t get to see many of the wonders of the places he visits.
He told the Kimmel: “I’m a freak, I want to stay in my hotel room all the time.”
Breaking Dawn-Part 2 is set to premiere at the Nokia Plaza Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles on Monday.
