Will Ferrell Jokes: Kristen Stewart Is a 'Tramp-ire'

Originally posted 08/03/2012 10:25AM

For some fans of the Twilight franchise – also known as Twi-Hards – news that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson felt like their own personal heartbreak.

Also offering his tears: Will Ferrell.

"What they had was so special," the comedian, 45, deadpanned to Conan O'Brien on Thursday night's Conan. (Watch the video below.) "You don't even know what they had. They were in love, and she just threw it all away."

His tongue-in-cheek concerns continued: "I just don't know if there was anything I could have done to prevent it. And I don't know what it means to the Twilight franchise. I just don't know."

While promoting her new movie Gone Tuesday on Conan, Amanda Seyfried revealed she has the start of what she hopes will be an extensive taxidermy collection.

Conan O'Brien might win the Boss of the Year award after surprising one of his staff members with the best Secret Santa gift she could ask for – a visit from Jon Hamm.

A hilarious video, posted on O'Brien's website, shows the talk show host selecting talent coordinator Ashley Olivia as his Secret Santa after deciding to participate in his show's annual holiday gift exchange for the first time.

O'Brien discovered Olivia's crush on Hamm as he rooted around her desk looking for possible last-minute gift ideas. It was there that he saw a picture of the Mad Men star taped to her cubicle.

Anne Hathaway Embodies Lil Wayne in Anti-Paparazzi Rap

Who knew Lil Wayne was Anne Hathaway's muse?

The One Day leading lady, 28, perturbed by all the paparazzi attention she's receiving, especially about her upcoming role as Catwoman in the all-star The Dark Knight Rises, wrote a special rap song to get back at the shutterbugs – a little number she performed at Conan O'Brien's request Tuesday night on Conan.

"With all the stuff that's been going on with Batman, The paparazzi attention's been a little intense, so I actually wrote a rap song about it," Hathaway told the TBS host.

Did You Spot Conan O'Brien's Sister in The Fighter?

In The Fighter, Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale claim the most screen time, but there's no denying their slew of sisters' scene-stealing abilities.

What you might not have realized is that one of the Eklund women has a famous brother in real life, too. Kate O'Brien, sister to late night TV host Conan O'Brien, plays Phyllis "Beaver" Eklund in her acting debut.

"I work at a school and someone said, 'They're casting [The Fighter], you should go down, you look Irish Catholic,' " Kate O'Brien told PEOPLE. "I'm one of six, so it wasn't that hard for me to look like I might have more siblings [in the movie]."

Seth Rogen: I Proposed to My Girlfriend When She Was Topless

Originally posted 11/09/2010 10:30AM

Little did Seth Rogen know that the engagement ring he bought for Lauren Miller would end up working best as a nipple ring.

Rogen, 28, had grand plans for the proposal but claims he had to improvise when he raced into the room to pop the question only to realize his actress girlfriend was topless.

"She was in our closet, changing, and she was literally only in her underpants," Rogen told Conan O'Brien on his brand new TBS talk show Monday. "I had already kind of started [to propose]. … I didn't picture it like this, and I know she didn't picture it like this."

PEOPLE's TV Critic Picks Conan's Top 3 Moments

Originally posted 11/09/2010 09:45AM

After all the buildup, Conan O'Brien's return to television on TBS Monday night was a modest, lowkey and slightly awkward affair – Seth Rogen, the first celebrity guest on what is now called Conan, was promoting The Green Hornet, a movie that doesn't even open until January. Both he and O'Brien seemed aware that they had committed an unstated, inexplicable breach of talk-show protocol. It was as if Rogen had been expected to bring coffee cake and instead showed up with a plate of uncooked ribs.

But O'Brien is still dealing with the fallout of the past year's talk-show battle with NBC and his former home, The Tonight Show. Moving to TBS at 11 p.m. ET, he's a bit like one of those Shakespearean princes who get bounced from their kingdom and have to reestablish their court on an island or in a forest or on a cul de sac. His charm, intelligence and humor will probably win out. Here are three encouraging signs that Conanian silliness will live on:

POLL: Conan O'Brien or Paris Hilton – Who Rocks the Soap Bubbles Best?

Watch out, Paris Hilton. You've got competition for best foamy bathing video.

Conan O'Brien seductively sprays and scrubs his (fully clothed) body with a soapy sponge in a funny promo for his new upcoming TBS talk show Conan. It's a silly homage to the heiress's sexy car wash commercial for Carl's Jr. fast-food outlets, but does raise a question:
