RT @CNN: Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who is running for Senate in Texas, says the process of separating families is “inhumane. I’d like to say it’s…
The presenter sobbed as he spoke about the latest American tragedy.
Jimmy Kimmel has delivered an impassioned and emotional speech in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shootings on television, urging his viewers to fight against ridiculous laws that enable people with mental illnesses to purchase multiple deadly automatic weapons. He reveals exactly who the politicians were that have been voting against legislation that could make the country a safer place to live.

As the world continues to mourn the loss of more than 50 people in Las Vegas on Sunday night (October 1st 2017), the host took to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to wonder aloud why the government isn't taking steps to ensure the safety of its citizens, and why many politicians continue to block legislation that would do so.

The talk-show host's youngest son is doing well after heart surgery.
Earlier this year, Jimmy Kimmel was put through the most emotional moment of his life when his newborn son was rushed into surgery when it became clear there was a problem with his heart. More than three months on, it seems baby Kimmel is doing great though he still needs to undergo two more operations.

The talk-show host opened up about life with his new son Billy - who was born on April 21st 2017 - in a new interview, recalling the moment he knew something was wrong after his birth and described how he dealt with the situation at the time.
Jim Carrey is back and he's been very busy.
We haven't seen a lot of Jim Carrey over the last couple of years, and indeed he has had a lot to deal with, but he opened up about what he's been up to in an interview on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' this week and fans could not have been more excited to see him again.

Since a few months after the release 'Dumb and Dumber To', Jim Carrey has been off the radar in the celebrity world. His personal life gripped the attention of the press in 2015 and 2016, but he held it together and now appears to be very much back in action.

There isn't a lot of subtlety in this madcap animated comedy, which is more aimed at nostalgic adults than young kids who will miss the rapid-fire movie references. But it's also silly and busy, and cute enough to make everyone in the audience sigh a few times. And it's anchored by a terrific vocal performance from Alec Baldwin that channels his infantile Donald Trump impersonation to hilarious effect.
The story is told through the eyes of a creative 7-year-old named Tim (Tobey Maguire as the film's narrator, Miles Bakshi as the character), who has enjoyed growing up as the only child of his playful, loving parents (Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel). Then a little baby brother (Alec Baldwin) arrives, and Tim discovers that he can walk and talk, and also that he's the CEO of Baby Corp, sent on a secret mission to spy on Puppyco, where Tim's parents work. Apparently, puppies are becoming more popular than babies, and now the Puppyco boss (Steve Buscemi) is preparing to launch a breed of puppy that will forever steal the love of parents from their children. In a panic, Tim teams up with the Boss Baby to get rid of him for good.
It's clear to grown-ups in the audience that all of this is happening in Tim's wildly imaginative head, which kind of eliminates any tension in the crazed action mayhem that follows. Younger viewers may find the premise itself rather baffling, but will enjoy the hyperactive pacing and snappy dialogue. The only problem with this is that it means that the movie remains resolutely superficial, touching on big issues like sibling rivalry and corporate greed without ever dealing with them. And it presents a baby as an aggressive invader, which may be how it sometimes feels to an older sibling, even if we know better.

What happens when a baby takes the top position? Seven-year-old Tim Templeton was doing just fine until his parents brought home his new baby brother, who seemed determined to attract as much attention as possible and steer their parents' sights away from poor Tim. Sibling rivalry is a natural thing, but Tim is exasperated by his mom and dad's blindness towards the baby, who happens to be constantly dressed in a business suit and carries a mini briefcase. It seemed inevitable that the baby would grow up to be a boss someday, though everyone expected him to actually grow up first. One day, Tim discovers that the baby can talk, though it's less 'goo goo ga ga' and more 'let's strike a deal'. As much as this news rocks Tim's world, he must team up with his bossy little brother when they discover that the CEO of Puppy Co., Francis E. Francis, wants to take over the world.

Appearing on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!', Cruise suggested he'd be up for reprising his role as Maverick in a 'Top Gun' sequel if it was "right".
Tom Cruise once again addressed long-standing rumours that a Top Gun sequel may or may not be in the works, hinting to Jimmy Kimmel that he would be keen on reprising his ‘Maverick’ role if the circumstances and script were “right”.
The 54 year old actor appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Tuesday evening (October 18th), nominally to discuss another upcoming sequel he’s starring in, that of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back in which he brings back his ex-Army Sergeant character based on Lee Child’s book series.

The two were due to perform 'Might Not' on Kimmel's show on Wednesday evening, but cancelled because Trump was also a guest.
The musicians had been due to perform ‘Might Not’ on Wednesday night’s show (May 25th), but they pulled out soon before it was due to tape, with Belly saying that he didn’t want to be seen to endorse Trump’s controversial rhetoric in any way.

Mean Tweets is back, but is this the meanest edition yet?
Everyone’s favourite ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ segment, ‘Mean Tweets’ made a comeback on Tuesday’s edition of the late night talk show and this may be the meanest one yet. The segment’s third music special featured stars including One Direction, Ed Sheeran and Demi Lovato, who all had to read out some of the shadiest (and funniest) comments made about them on social media.
One Direction were forced to confront a mean tweet on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'.
While Ed Sheeran might be enjoying huge success stateside, it seems not everyone’s a fan. The red-haired singer read out a tweet which proclaimed: ‘I can't stand this new Ed Sheeran. Like why TF are you happy on your records. You’re a f****** ginger for f**** sake’.
However, Clooney did have a little help from 'House' star Hugh Laurie.
‘E.R.’ was one of the most popular TV shows of the ‘90s, and it enjoyed a thrilling reunion of its cast members on Tuesday night’s episode of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on ABC. Only problem was, George Clooney was the only person to show up...
This wasn’t going to stop Kimmel though, as he explained to his guest Clooney and the audience that they’d be attempting to put together a brief skit despite the fact that everybody else was busy.
“This was kind of a last-minute thing, and we had some trouble getting the whole cast of ‘E.R.’ to come,” Kimmel said. “[Julianna Margulies] was filming ‘The Good Wife’, so she couldn’t make it. [Noah Wyle] wanted to be here, but guess he had a thing with his family, Taco Tuesday. Eric LaSalle had jury duty.”

The vintage light aircraft that Ford was piloting came down on a golf course outside L.A. back in March because of engine failure.
Harrison Ford has spoken for the first time about his miraculous escape from a plane crash seven months ago, after a vintage light aeroplane he was piloting crash-landed on a golf course on the outskirts of Los Angeles.
It was only thanks to Ford’s impeccable skills and execution that he managed to walk away relatively unscathed, and what happened would have been fatal under almost any other circumstance, crash investigators revealed soon after the accident back in March.
The 73 year old appeared on a special Star Wars / Halloween edition of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ – dressed as a hot dog, natch – and spoke about his recollections of the incident, as well as the new movie.

We use advanced technology for dating and selfies... go figure.
Back To The Future Day was on Wednesday (October 21st 2015) but people are still celebrating the legacy of this era-defining movie and stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd even reunited as Marty McFly and Doc on the latest episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'. Needless to say, they were pretty disappointed with the real 2015.
Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson were re-united for the film's 30th anniversary
So we don't have hoverboards, flying cars or self-tying sneakers in 2015 as opposed to what 1989's 'Back To The Future II' would've had us believe, but it's still a common agreement that technology has advanced a tremendous amount in the last thirty years, right? Well, Marty and Doc don't think so. When their time-travelling DeLorean landed in the middle of Jimmy Kimmel's talk show last night (October 22nd 2015), they were amazed at just how little the world had changed.
Trump cancelled his scheduled appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' on Tuesday, something that the host was pretty annoyed about.
Trump, the controversial frontrunner for Republican Party’s presidential candidate for next year’s election, had pulled out of a scheduled appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ with less than 24 hours to go. Kimmel was understandably upset, as the much-talked about billionaire-turned-politician has made appearances on rival shows by Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon in the last few weeks.

Matt Damon has been waiting 12 years to get on the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live! ‘ sofa.
After 12 years Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel may have finally buried the hatchet, thanks to some couples therapy. The Martian star took part in the sketch during ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Monday, after he first tired to pass himself off as scheduled guest Dr. Phil.

Wearing a bald cap and fake moustache Damon appeared after Kimmel announced Dr Phil. But despite his best attempt at a Texan accent, Kimmel recognised that it wasn’t the TV psychologist and instead it was Damon once again trying to get on the show.

Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog might no longer be a couple, but the pair are still keeping their professional obligations, no matter how awkward they might be. On Monday night the exes reunited on Jimmy Kimmel Live! ahead of the premiere of their new ABC show ‘The Muppets’.
Kermit and Miss Piggy are no longer together, but still honouring their chat show commitments.
Host Kimmel didn't waste any time and got straight to the hard questions, asking the pair why they split, especially as “You always seemed so happily unhappy together.” "Well, Piggy and I had a great relationship for many, many years, and we sort of wanted different things," Kermit answered.
6.6 million tuned in to watch Colbert present his first episode of 'The Late Show' on CBS.
‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’, which has been anticipated for several months since David Letterman retired as host in May after 22 years in the job, got an average of 6.6 million viewers on Tuesday evening (September 8th).
This was more than double the ratings of its nearest competitor that night, with NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’ securing 2.9 million viewers and ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ with 1.8 million.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux were married by one of television’s brightest stars – Jimmy Kimmel!
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s wedding was officiated by late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel. Howard Stern attended the wedding and he couldn’t resist letting a few secrets slip during his Monday (10th July) radio show on SiriusXM.

It's not as simple as you think, though.
Zoe Saldana and husband Marco have gone in a rather unorthodox direction when it comes to the terms of their marriage. Case in point: their last names. Perego decided to take on his wife’s last name, after marriage and it was a completely natural process.
Saldana and Perego are all about compromise in their family life.
According to Saldana, speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, Marco Saldana, made the choice himself. "Did you make him do that?" Jimmy Kimmel asked on Thursday night's Kimmel Live. "Oh my God," she said, "why does it mean a woman has to hold a gun, like, 'You're gonna be Saldana!'"
