No Hollywood wedding planner. No big dress. Just a couple of kids on a Thursday morning at the courthouse, with an impromptu officiant sealing the deal.

That's how Kristen Bell described her October wedding to husband Dax Shepard, which went off happily and without the usual celebrity pomp and flourish.

"We wanted the lowest-key day possible," Bell, 33, told Jay Leno on Thursday of her quiet nuptials. The couple had dated since 2007 and became engaged in 2010.

George W. Bush Gushes About Granddaughter on The Tonight Show

George W. Bush may have stepped away from the political spotlight, but he seems to have won the popular (audience) vote – on Tuesday's The Tonight Show.

"You're about to head out to pasture – just wanted to see what you looked like before you got to the gate," Bush cracked.
