Jennifer Aniston is the guest on the latest 'Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). And while she's on the show, we get a shocking, semi-shocking, or at least kind of shocking revelation. Back in the early '90s, when she was a star on 'Friends,' Jen Aniston went on a date with ... Jon Stewart! He took her out to an Italian restaurant. No lie! True story! Sadly, the date didn't go that well, which is probably why Jen ended up becoming Ms. Brad Pitt. (And then became ex-Ms. Brad Pitt.) According to Jon's recollection of the event, he realized that the date was going badly when Jen brought "so many of her friends." ... Yeah, that's never good. Apparently, Jen wasn't super into the whole "going out" situation, so she tried to distract from it by bringing along "members of her posse." "Yeah; that's really sad," Jen says, while thinking back on the event. Ouch! Even years later, she still seems pretty jaded about the idea of getting to go out with Mr. Jon Stewart. Oh well. We're sure that there are plenty of other women who would be happy to date the 'Daily Show' host. (Although, just as a warning -- hands off, ladies! He's married.) Source & Video
There's an ad for Jason Bateman's new film, 'The Switch,' that's essentially forced the actor to lie to his 4-year-old daughter, he shared on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM). This particular poster shows him "holding a sperm sample in a cup ... I'm making like a disgusted look but it actually looks like I'm smelling it -- which is what you do with sperm, right, to make sure it's something you might want to shoot back," he joked. When Bateman takes his daughter to school, they pass right by the billboard. "Daddy, is that yogurt?" she once asked. Check out his response. Source & Video
All-Star baseball player Derek Jeter realizes that Denis Leary doesn't really fight fires, right? Maybe. On 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM), Leary discussed the commercial that the 'Rescue Me' cast made with the Yankee. "He comes to the set, and we go in the makeup trailer," explained Leary. "[Jeter says], 'I really admire what you guys do. I don't know how you do what you do.' "And Steve Pasquale sums it up. He goes, 'What are you talking about? We're fags -- we pretend to be brave guys.' ... I thought that really summed it up." Source & Preview
Star Wars junkie Jon Stewart will be spending some quality time with franchise creator George Lucas this August, EW.com has learned exclusively. The Daily Show host will interview Lucas live in a one-hour conversation at Star Wars Celebration V, an annual fan convention, in Orlando, Florida, Aug. 12-15. In their conversation, dubbed The Main Event, Stewart and Lucas will discuss the history of the Star Wars saga and delve into the arcana of the multi-billion-dollar series. Stewart is a huge Star Wars fan - Lucas appeared on StewartÂ¡s show back in January when the filmmaker was promoting his book, George LucasÂ¡s Blockbusting, and the two had great banter with each other - but fans who may be worried that Stewart wonÂ¡t ask their hottest burning questions can submit their own at www.starwarscelebration.com. Also on tap for the convention this year is Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) plus the actors who played C-3PO, Bobo Fett, Chewbacca and others. The official Lucasfilm-hosted event will also feature Star Wars Laser Tag, a Star Wars Celebration Chapel and sneak peaks into Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And of course, a fan convention would not be complete without a costume contest. Star Wars Celebration will feature four pageants for fans to model their intergalactic finery. And for those who canÂ¡t wait to see Lucas and Stewart, hereÂ¡s a reminder of their chemistry together earlier this year. Source Here
Last night, Jon Stewart used The Daily Show to come to the defense of our good friends and colleagues Matt and Trey' and the 'veiled death threats' that Matt Stone and Trey Parker received in the wake of the past two weeks' episodes about, in part, the prophet Muhammad. Stewart bowed a bit to his employers, Comedy Central, for censoring the episode - 'It's their right, we all serve at their pleasure' - but deplored what has befallen 'our great and hilarious and intelligent and sweet comedy brethren Matt and Trey.'
