Watch Billie Eilish’s Gravity-Defying ‘Bad Guy’ Performance on ‘SNL’
Following the release of her inaugural LP When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? earlier this year, Billie Eilish made her Saturday Night Live debut as musical guest, appearing on the Woody Harrelson-hosted Season 45 premiere.

Appearing in a box made to look like Grand Central station in New York, the singer first delivered a gravity-defying performance of her hit “Bad Guy.” While she initially sauntered across the floor, she soon began walking on the walls and then on the ceiling in her signature oversized T-shirt.

Billie Eilish Gives New Meaning to the Phrase "Gassed Up" in a Game of True Confessions

  • Popsugar
Billie Eilish stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a game of True Confessions, and boy did they confess some things. The host and the 17-year-old singer were joined by comedian Colin Quinn as they debated whether each person's disclosure was true. While Jimmy's and Colin's reveals were hilarious, Billie's leaned more to the stomach-churning side. "I once farted in my friend's mouth while she was yawning and she threw up," her card read. And of course Jimmy and Colin were pretty confused, but tried to get down to the bottom of everything (no pun intended). Watch them try to figure out if Billie is lying about the flatulent story above!

Chris Hemsworth Reveals His First Job Was 'Cleaning Out Breast Pumps' at 14

Chris Hemsworth Reveals His First Job Was 'Cleaning Out Breast Pumps' at 14
Chris Hemsworth may be starring in blockbuster Hollywood movies, but things weren’t always so glamorous for the Thor actor.

The 35-year-old Aussie revealed his first job before he ever made it to the big screen, while playing a game of “True Confessions” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night.

“My first job was cleaning out breast pumps,” Hemsworth deadpanned. “It was repairing them as well, occasionally. Any pump, you know, there’s a motor with a belt, like a rubber belt for the suction.”

Flabbergasted, Fallon and comedian Kumail Nanjiani then interrogated the Men In Black: International

Men in Black: International” stars Chris Hemsworth and Kumail Nanjiani joined Jimmy Fallon for a round of “True Confessions” on Wednesday, when we all learned quite a bit about the “Silicon Valley” actor.

First though, it was Hemsworth’s turn to either lie or tell the truth in the “Tonight Show” game. Thor told the truth, but the description of the Aussie’s first job sure sounded like a lie.

After Hemsworth, Fallon told a tall tale about partying with Dolph Lundgren and an angry pack of wolves. That one was untrue, but it also wasn’t any crazier than what Nanjiani actually did back in the day.

Chris Hemsworth Used to Clean Out Breast Pumps For a Living
Before he was wielding a hammer as Marvel Universe's Thor, Chris Hemsworth was, uh, hands deep in breast milk. Allow us to explain. During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, the Aussie hunk played a game of "True Confessions" with host Jimmy Fallon and comedian Kumail Nanjiani. The rules were simple: Pick an envelope, read the revelation inside and allow the two remaining players to interrogate you and guess if it's true or false. Easy, right?

Watch Chris Hemsworth Cover ‘Hurt’ as Fat Thor on ‘Fallon’

Watch Chris Hemsworth Cover ‘Hurt’ as Fat Thor on ‘Fallon’
Anyone who has seen Avengers: Endgame knows that the character of Thor took a really dark turn. The superhero, played by Chris Hemsworth, was so depressed by the loss of his friends and family that he gained weight and started heavily drinking. So it makes sense that Fat Thor would be into Johnny Cash, especially the singer’s morose cover of Nine Inch Nails’ tune “Hurt.”

Hemsworth shared a clip of him in character as Thor covering the track with The Tonight Show. “I didn’t know if I was ever going to show it,

Here’s the way the “Tonight Show” game works: Participants take turns confessing a random fact while the others interrogate them to determine whether it’s a truth or a lie. Each player is armed with one real story and one fabricated one, the others pick which envelope is opened.

Mulaney was up first: “My neighbor was arrested by the FBI for being a cannibal.”

That one can’t be true, right? Think again. Yeah, this is a messed up world.

And during their chat, Matthew candidly revealed that he once saved his now 10-year-old son, Levi, from a charging mountain ram! Yes, seriously! "I got charged by a mountain ram at the edge of the Grand Canyon and had to throw my six-month-old child 15 feet through the air — to my wife — to save him," he recalled.

The thought of Norm Macdonald appearing on NBC’s The Tonight Show in the immediate wake of his disparaging comments about the #MeToo movement had some producers in tears and ultimately led to his visit being scrapped at the last minute.

Visiting Howard Stern’s radio show the morning after his cancelled Tuesday Tonight Show drop-by, Macdonald said that he had arrived early at the late-night show to pre-tape a “True Confessions” segment with fellow guest Matthew McConaughey when “some people, from NBC or The Tonight Show, I don’t know who they were,” stopped by his dressing room and

Trailer Watch: Joan Didion Finds Her Voice in Netflix Doc “The Center Will Not Hold”

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold

“My first notebook was given to me by my mother with the suggestion that I amuse myself by writing down my thoughts,” says Joan Didion in a new trailer for an upcoming Netflix documentary about her life and work. “I didn’t have any real clear picture of how to do it but I do remember having a very clear sense that I wanted this to continue.” And continue it did. Her 50-year career includes essays, novels, screenplays, and criticism.

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold” features archival footage of the celebrated American writer as well as in-depth interviews “about the eras she covered and the eventful life she’s lived, including partying with Janis Joplin in a house full of L.A. rockers; hanging in a recording studio with Jim Morrison; and cooking dinner for one of Charles Manson’s women for a magazine story,” the doc’s official synopsis details. “Didion guides us through the sleek literati scene of New York in the 1950s and early ’60s, when she wrote for Vogue, her return to her home state of California for two turbulent decades,” and much more.

“I’ve always found if I examine something it’s less scary,” Didion explains in the spot. One of the scariest experiences Didion has faced was the death of her husband, John Gregory Dunne, which she chronicled in “The Year of Magical Thinking,” the winner of the 2005 National Book Award for Nonfiction, and a topic of discussion in “The Center Will Not Hold.”

Didion’s best known books include “Slouching Towards Bethlehem,” “The White Album,” and “Play It As It Lays.” “A Star Is Born,” “True Confessions,” and “Up Close & Personal” are among the screenplays she’s penned.

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold” is directed by Griffin Dunne (“The Good Wife”) and hits Netflix October 27.
