Kat Dennings may be a well-adjusted woman now, but growing up, she had some unusual fixations.
For starters, she wanted to be Wednesday Addams.
Dennings, 28, said on Conan Wednesday night that she idolized Charles Addams's Goth forerunner growing up, to the point that she'd introduce herself as the character and sleep in the classic arms-folded "vampire" pose.

Love is shaving your partner's nether regions – at least, according to Dax Shepard.
The actor opened up about how he prepared to bare his butt in This Is Where I Leave You during a Monday night appearance on Conan. As it turns out, the nude scene's success is all thanks to some awkward grooming by his wife, Kristen Bell.
"While I don't have a lot of hair on the cheeks, they're nice, you know, there's an ample amount ... there's a forest in the valley," Shepard said, with some delicate prompting from Andy Richter. "And my fear, my deep, deep fear, would [be to] look like there's a werewolf trying to escape my butt crack."

It's become clear from the outpouring of sympathy for Robin Williams on social media over the past few days that no one community – fans, actors or comedians – could truly, exclusively claim the man as "their own."
But comedy is a tight club, which is why watching late-night hosts Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers toast their departed friend and peer was so touching.

Because most late-night shows are taped in the afternoon or early evening, sometimes breaking news has to be addressed.
In Conan O'Brien's case, that news was Robin Williams's death, and he handled the shock of it admirably.

Talk about a Game of Thrones.
While Meredith Vieira was a guest on Conan this week, the TV favorite discussed an unusual idea she has for her upcoming talk show.
"One of the segments that we're doing is called 'Stall Talk,' Vieira told Conan O'Brien. "And I'm in one stall of a bathroom, my guest is in the next stall, and you interview them."

The White House Correspondents' Association Dinner has come a long way since its inception in 1920. (For example, did you know that until 1962, it was only open to men, even though the WHCA's contained women? That year – at the urging of Helen Thomas – JFK refused to attend until the ban on women was lifted.)
In its early years, the dinner featured a mix of singers, dancers and comedians as performers; not until 1983 when Mark Russell headlined did the practice of having a comedian host the event become the norm.
Since then, the Dinner has become a springboard for politically inclined comics to showcase their best material. Here are our five faves. Good luck to this year's host Joel McHale: He's got some big shoes to fill.
