Last night, Jimmy Kimmel had yet another member of the Star Wars franchise in the hot seat. A few weeks ago, it was a dodgy Harrison Ford who took questions from the crowd, and this time it was J.J. Abrams, director of the upcoming Star Wars film, who — for better or worse — took story line suggestions for the new movie from some of Star Wars's, er, biggest fans.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon kept the party going at the Time 100 Gala in NYC last night. The two friends, who were named two of the magazine's 100 most influential people in the world this year, were joined by Justin's wife, a Tom Ford-clad Jessica Biel, and a Lanvin-wearing Claire Danes. Also out were honorees Lena Dunham and Vice President Joe Biden, who took the chance to work the room of Hollywood stars. Other guests included Amy Poehler, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Christina Aguilera, who performed at the event and hobnobbed with Lena on the red carpet.
Inside the bash, the stars wasted no time celebrating the honorees. Justin and Jimmy danced around the room and goofed off with Amy and musician Frank Ocean. Lena commented on getting on the Time 100 list, saying that the first person she told about being on the list was her father. She said, "I called my dad because he was a layout editor at Time in the 1970s, so I was super psyched, and I wanted to tell him that I was making good in his former institution. I heard there was a drinks cart when he worked there." Meanwhile, Daniel, who picked up the best actor award at this year's Oscars, commented that he is "more than mildly astonished" that he landed on the list.
Harrison Ford has been cagey about being in Star Wars: Episode VII, and now we might know why: he has beef with Chewbacca. Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ford was taking questions from the audience with one instruction: "no Star Wars questions." The audience members kept to that rule, except, well, they were all dressed like Star Wars characters. Wait for the best part at the end, when things got heated between Ford and Chewbacca, because, in Ford's words, "He knows what he did."
Ben Affleck and his brother, Casey Affleck, were seen boarding a private jet with Ben's wife, Jennifer Garner, and their pal Don Cheadle yesterday as they left St. Lucia. On a later plane, Chris Hemsworth and his wife, Elsa Pataky, caught a flight from the Caribbean along with Jimmy Kimmel and his fiancé, Molly McNearney. The celebs were on the tropical island to watch as Matt and Luciana Damon renewed their wedding vows.
According to reports, the Damons rented out the entire Sugar Beach resort to celebrate their marriage after nearly eight years of wedded bliss. Their four daughters, Gia, Isabella, Alexia, and Stella, were there to witness the happy occasion. Matt and Luciana married in a small Manhattan ceremony in December 2005, and their weekend party gave them the chance to have the big blowout wedding they didn't do the first time around. For their vow renewal ceremony, which was officiated by Jimmy Kimmel, Matt wore a light suit and Luciana had a special gown from Naeem Khan, a friend of their family. The Damons and their guests wrapped things up with a cocktail party on a tiki-torch-lined beach.
In today's headlines from Los Angeles, we have a new clip of The Hangover Part III, Kelly Osbourne has a seizure, some new Catching Fire details are released, and more! Matthew's wardrobe provided by Club Monaco.
You can't help but love the way Jessica Simpson laughs at herself. While visiting Jimmy Kimmel last night, Jessica Simpson told the host that it feels like déjà vu getting pregnant with her second child so quickly after he daughter, Maxwell, 10 months old, was born. In addition to accidentally revealing that she's expecting a baby boy, she opened up to the host about future plans for expanding her family, marriage plans, and how her father, who is a minister, reacted to her pregnancies that she's had out of wedlock.

Jimmy Kimmel's post-Oscars skits are now one of my favorite things about Oscar night, and this year was just as fun. Kimmel showcased a ton of stars in the "trailer" for Movie: The Movie: 2V, the sequel to the first Movie: The Movie, of course. This time, he showcased the likes of Bradley Cooper, Matt Damon, Rachel Weisz, Jessica Chastain, and John Krasinski in this year's skit.
Watch and let us know who you think is the funniest after the jump.
Do you find yourself magnetically drawn to Christoph Waltz? Turns out there's a reason for that. The Oscar-nominated star of Django Unchained filmed a skit for Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week, schooling us all on how to score with your Valentine's Day date. Allegedly, it has a lot to do with pheromones. One of his tips? Rub your armpits Mary Katherine Gallagher style, then smear your hands all over your face and neck. I have to say, even after viewing some of Waltz's grotesque methods, I'd still date him. I'll settle for watching him host Saturday Night Live this weekend, though.
