When asked a few questions about Beyonce, Bush had no idea that the singer was married to Jay Z or that she was pregnant with twins.

He did, however, love Kimmel's monologue at the 89th Academy Awards, and was aware of the major flub at the end of the awards show, when La La Land was announced as Best Picture when Moonlight actually won. "I felt sorry for you," Bush told Kimmel. "You were like, 'PricewaterhouseCoopers did it!'"

Comedian Bridges Dead At 48

  • WENN
Comedic actor Steve Bridges has passed away at the age of 48.

He was found dead of apparent natural causes at his California home on Saturday.

An autopsy has been scheduled to determine an official cause of death but the Los Angeles County coroner's office does not suspect foul play.

A post on the star's website reads, "It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Steve Bridges. His passing comes as a shock to all of us. The cause of death is not known at this time, but we will publish more information as it becomes available.

"Steve brought joy and laughter to millions and was a great inspiration to all who knew him. He will be sadly missed. Our prayers go to his family at this time."

The funnyman was perhaps best known for his range of celebrity impersonations, which include former U.S. President George W. Bush and actor/politician Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Bridges' passing comes as a surprise to many - he was slated to headline the Indian Wells Rotary Annual College Scholarship Fundraiser in southern California next week (13-15Mar12).
