Leave it to Jessica Simpson to poke fun at herself and her back-to-back pregnancies. The expectant star sat down with Jay Leno last night to talk about her new comedy show, baby weight gain, and current pregnancy — which she joked was the result of a one-night stand. Talking about her infamous weight gain during her pregnancy with baby Maxwell, she said she ate "everything" — pizza, hamburgers, fries, the whole works — but is taking a healthier approach this time around. Watch the clip and laugh along with Jessica.
Like a true Hollywood star, Matt Damon is cruising around town promoting his new film, Promised Land. However, last night he stopped by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and told the host he does the one humbling act that most stars avoid like the plague: he reads comments that random people on the Internet post about him. While most of us would shudder at the thought, Damon bravely read off three less-than-flattering comments, two of which involve his so-called "doughy" physique. The clip concludes with a jab that President Obama made about Damon's performance in The Adjustment Bureau. Ouch! We still love you, Matt.

Kristen Stewart was smiley and happy as she stepped out in a colorful Peter Pilotto dress to chat with Jay Leno for The Tonight Show in LA on Monday evening. Kristen spoke to Jay about the final Twilight movies, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2, saying, "Popped one out — pretty concerned with that. Me and Edward are doing quite well; people keep trying to kill my baby. But I'm now superspectacular, so I can take care of that, being a vampire." Kristen also touched on Breaking Dawn Part 2's twist ending: "Every time I see it or even think about it, I get giddy. It freaks me out. . . . It's easy to skim over. But you can find the root of our little twist [in the book]." Kristen switched gears from her blockbuster franchise to promote her indie project On the Road over the weekend. Kristen premiered On the Road at the AFI Festival in LA on Saturday, and she was joined by boyfriend Robert Pattinson at that afterparty. While Kristen was chatting with Jay, Rob was elsewhere in town making his own appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's show.
Fans of Ryan Lochte were treated to shots of the hot swimmer working out last night on The Tonight Show, as the Olympic swimmer talked training with Jay Leno. The Lochtenator was pretty articulate, as he talked about workouts that involve lifting tires and throwing kegs, but he was interrupted a few times by fellow guest Kristen Bell. "It's a really hillbilly workout. I like it," Kristen offered. It wasn't all athlete talk, though. Jay brought up the Olympic heartthrob's single status. "Somebody in the Olympics was a virgin. Was that you?" Jay asked. With a cute smile, Ryan made it clear that, in fact, he is not a virgin. Ryan does have one special friend in his life: his dog Carter. He told Jay, "We sit on the couch all the time and watch action-packed movies." Check out Ryan's interview now.

Jennifer Lopez, wearing a chic black dress, stopped by The Late Show last night in LA to chat with Jay Leno. Jay began by getting Jen's thoughts on the passing of Whitney Houston. Jen described her voice as "the pinnacle" of greatness in the music industry and called the entire situation "sad." The conversation switched to a lighter subject when Jay asked about her latest TV projects, American Idol and ¡Q'Viva! The Chosen. As for Idol Jen said her job on the panel is to "keep it fair" when her fellow judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler get distracted by pretty contestants. Meanwhile, in regards to working with her ex Marc Anthony Jen said they "had a lot of fun."
Jen and Marc have moved beyond their breakup and both seem to be moving on with new relationships. He's been spotted on the arm of Shannon de Lima and Jen's been enjoying romantic beach dates with Casper Smart. She wasn't sure about her Valentine's Day plans, but did mention receiving a necklace in the shape of coconuts, which happens to be her nickname for twins Max and Emme.
Our hats are off to First Lady Michelle Obama for accomplishing the impossible. After over 40 years of having not eaten a vegetable, Jay Leno managed to be talked into trying veggie pizza and sweet potato fries. Though he didn't seem too convinced about the first two items, he certainly loved the White House honey she brought him. I have to say, Michelle, I'm surprised you're not a fan of beets! Maybe you should try them in chocolate cake.
Jennifer Garner sat down with Jay Leno last night to discuss her upcoming film Butter, which hits theaters this March. Talk turned from work to her personal life, though, when Jennifer opened up about her pregnancy. She shared that her girls, Violet and Seraphina, are getting excited for their new sibling and are even trying to help name the child by holding "baby naming contests." They've apparently come up with mostly Disney-inspired ideas, including Peter Pan and Captain Hook. Jennifer wouldn't reveal the sex of the little one, but she did say that she's not due until the Spring. As she awaits the arrival of her new addition, Jennifer's been sticking close to home and recently relaxed with a trip to a local nail salon.
