Now that's conservation. Matt Damon, an advocate for clean water worldwide, wasn't going to be wasteful when he stepped up to respond to the ice-bucket challenge. Noting the ongoing drought in California and the global challenges of clean water, Damon went not to a garden hose or faucet but straight to the toilet to douse himself for Als research, explaining that such water in Western nations is typically cleaner than drinking water in developing countries. Though his choice might gross out some, Damon said adequate sanitation is still a problem for 2.4 billion people. "Because I co-founded Water.org, and we »

By now, you've probably seen those infamous photos of Idris Elba's alleged bulge, and the British actor is still trying to calm down all the rumors about his package size. After the pictures first popped up, Idris tweeted that the "bulge" in question was actually a wire for a microphone, crushing the dreams of many fans.

Watch Idris speak out above, and check out his take on the Als Ice Bucket Challenge below! »
No one conducts an interview quite like Guillermo Rodriguez — and for good reason. The Jimmy Kimmel Live! go-to guy was backstage at Monday's Emmys, where he got Bryan Cranston to rub mustaches with him, Aaron Paul to kick off a night of drinking and Julianna Margulies to be grossed out by a shot of his special liquor. Stephen Colbert got in on the action, too, conducting part of his sit-down with Guillermo while embracing him in hug. Later in the show, Jimmy Kimmel got Idris Elba to partake in the Als Ice Bucket Challenge. Thankfully he remembered

50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather, who were once good friends, have been in an ongoing feud that’s now centering around the Als Ice Bucket Challenge.
50 Cent Floyd Mayweather Feud
After getting nominated, 50 Cent decided to call out his ex-pal Mayweather. However, instead of following suit with the bucket of ice, 50 Cent offered to donate $750,000 to charity if Mayweather could read one page of a Harry Potter book in public without messing up.
"Got a phone call from my man, Jimmy Kimmel," 50 Cent said. "Jimmy said that if Floyd accepts the challenge, he'd put it on the actual show. You can read it on the show. We don't want to put pressure on you, »
It sounds like Katy Perry and Diplo had a fun-filled Emmys night together! Following Monday's 2014 Emmy Awards, the 29-year-old pop star and her DJ beau hit up Seth Meyers' Beats by Dr. Dre after party at Hyde. According to a source, Perry and her man were very handsy with each other during the bash and were acting like a very cute couple. In addition to their party Pda, the music stars also danced together. The source also adds that the lovebirds are "still together" romantically. Other celebs who were at the party included Alison Williams, Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm, Kate Mara, Eric Stonestreet, Jimmy Kimmel, Elizabeth Banks, Claire Danes, Juliana Margulies, Kevin Spacey and Perry's stylist »
Despite all the pieces heralding this as a golden age of television, the Emmys — or more accurately, those who mounted and attended them — still haven’t gotten over their infatuation with movie stars, or retired their age-old inferiority complex. And while people are to be forgiven for ogling Matthew McConaughey, the cumulative weight of all the attention he garnered from the stage went from cute to unseemly, as if nobody could believe a recent Oscar winner would deign to attend their party.
Not only does this fly in the face of history — movie stars aren’t exactly a new feature of Emmy voting — but it does a general disservice to those who have rightfully garnered praise for their television work. Besides, Bryan Cranston just won a Tony for the play “All the Way;” should people be doing cartwheels that he found time to show up?
Yet there was McConaughey on the red carpet, »

If you've ever been given a swirly, take heart: Matt Damon's had toilet water all over his head, too! The Oscar winner chose this fate, though, in response to Ben Affleck and Jimmy Kimmel nominating him for the Als Ice Bucket Challenge! But why did Matt pour cold toilet water all over himself—as opposed to just dousing himself with cold water from the tap? The challenge, he said, "posed kind of a problem for me, not only because there's a drought here in California, but also because I co-founded Water.org." Because "not everybody has access to a clean drink of water—there are about 800 million people in the world who don't," Matt said that "dumping a clean bucket of »
Matt Damon promotes two causes at the same time.
Matt Damon envisions a day where everyone has access to clean water.
Instead, he took the water from his toilet to make another point and promote another cause that is important to him.
In his YouTube video, Matt says, "This is truly toilet water. I've been collecting it from various toilets around the house."
Although it was more than 24 hours later, Matt says he'll not only pay the fine and donate to Als but wants to bring awareness to Water.org, a non-profit he co-founded to provide safe water and sanitation in the developing world.

Matthew McConaughey is very optimistic about saving the world in a new TV spot for his next film, “Interstellar.” The 60-second preview (above) begins with Michael Caine saying, “We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system can help us.” Also read: Emmy Voters: Sorry Matthew McConaughey, But This Is Our Party It sends on a happier note, however, when McConaughey's space astronaut character says, “We'll find a way.

The competition for the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series was intensely fierce - so much so that even presenter Julia Roberts couldn't believe the list of great performances that were battling against one another. The lead battle appeared to be between True Detective's Matthew McConaughey, who would have made history if he'd won the same year he won an Oscar, and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who was coming off his show's flawless final season. Despite nearly everyone assuming that Matthew would win (including presenter Jimmy Kimmel), Bryan snagged the award. Relive the exact moment that Matthew realized he had lost and quickly started clapping above and watch Bryan's winning speech below. Front Page Image Source: Getty / Jason Laveris »
If a show wins Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row, is that still considered a surprise? We ponder that and other Wtf moments that peppered an overall pretty staid 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. The three-hours-and-no-more (there seemed to be some serious speed-reading going on tonight) ceremony was capably hosted by Seth Meyers, with major assists from his former SNL right-hand funnywoman Amy Poehler, Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Kimmel and the very mention of the word "Beyoncé." But even during a show light on drama, either of the scripted or spontaneous variety, there were still a handful of moments that had us reaching for the rewind button: 1. Netflix Is Not the New Cable: Or the »
After an inordinately glum, memorial-filled 2013 awards that “Modern Family” exec producer Steve Levitan only half-jokingly dubbed the “saddest Emmys” ever, the 66th annual Emmy Awards wisely erred on the side of comedy, with Seth Meyers bringing a breezy charm to his hosting role and the planned bits – like audience Q&A, with stars asking the questions – mostly working. Where the evening broke down, alas, was in the awards themselves, which so frequently dredged up familiar faces as to suck much of the vitality out of the festivities, giving this year’s Tuesday-morning quarterbacks plenty about which to gripe.
To be fair, the Emmys have always offered a mix of old and new, and some of the repeat winners have exhibited such consistent excellence (Jim Parsons, Julia Louis-Dreyfus) as to make a case for their continued laurels.
Nevertheless, the parade of repeat winners – and overlooking of projects that injected new blood »

The Emmy Awards broke tradition and aired on Monday night this year, so we understand if you're missing them. We've already talked about some of the craziest moments so far, like when Jimmy Kimmel burned Matthew McConaughey - figuratively, of course - and when Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus had a full-on makeout session. Looking to relive all those and the rest of the funniest moments? Keep scrolling for the best GIFs of the night. »
Jimmy Kimmel's Emmys speech had the audience in stitches, but not everyone was safe from his spot-on jokes. Matthew McConaughey and Ricky Gervais in particular got the short straw during Kimmel's roast of the television industry. Kimmel said McConaughey had "a movie star face" especially after his numerous film and TV nominations. We've all been thinking this, but Kimmel said it best: "How many of those speeches are we supposed to sit through...?" After accusing McConaughey of not even owning a TV after trading it for a conch shell full of marijuana, Kimmel turned his attention to Gervais, accusing the British actor of having "a television face." More specifically, "It's a »
Why is Academy Award winner and golden boy Matthew McConaughey at the Emmys? That's what Jimmy Kimmel wants to know. After taking the subway to the awards, Kimmel took to the stage to announce the winner for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. But before he opened the envelope, the ABC TV host gave McConaughey his own mini-roast. Feeling like the McConaissance had run its course, Kimmel zinged the laid-back True Detective star for his television takeover. Here are Kimmel's best shots at the infamous bongo player. 1.

Jimmy Kimmel got a few good shots in at “True Detective” star Matthew McConaughey while presenting the award for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the Emmys on Monday night, taking aim at the actor's long-winded awards speeches and reported penchant for marijuana use. Kimmel started off his mini-roast of McConaughey– up for an award this year for the HBO drama “True Detective” — by calling the actor out for his weight loss in the big-screen offering, “Dallas Buyers Club.” Also read: Emmys Winners 2014: The Complete List (Updating Live) “Is that Matthew McConaughey?” Kimmel cracked. “You got so fat since. »

Jimmy Kimmel basically took over Seth Meyers's hosting gig when he presented the award for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series at the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday night and started ripping into audience members. The late-night star, who has hosted the show before, kicked things off by ribbing Matthew McConaughey for being a movie star at a TV-centric award show. After joking that Matthew had a "movie star face" and didn't belong on the small screen, Jimmy then made a point of finding Ricky Gervais in the audience to joke about his TV face. "Actually it's not even a TV face, it's a Netflix face," Jimmy joked. (Don't be offended for Ricky; he looked like he loved it.) Other award-show-host-worthy digs included mocking Matthew for "getting fat" since the Oscars and complaining about having to sit through another one of the star's infamous acceptance speeches.

It's a big evening for Matthew McConaughey at the Emmy Awards in La! He's nominated for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his work in True Detective and is going up against his costar Woody Harrelson in the category. The hit HBO show is also up for outstanding drama series as well as outstanding writing and directing. If Matthew picks up the honor, he will become the first actor to have won both a lead actor Academy Award and a lead actor Emmy in the same year. Matthew arrived with Camila Alves by his side, and inside the show he took a few hits from presenter Jimmy Kimmel, who joked about Matthew being more suited for movies than TV. »
Floyd Mayweather has responded to 50 Cent's reading challenge.
Rapper 50 Cent threw shade at Floyd Mayweather, implying that Floyd can't read, but Floyd is now responding that he doesn't care -- because who needs to read when you have $72 million?
It all started on Friday when 50 told Floyd he would donate $750,000 to the charity of his choice if he could read a single page of a Harry Potter book without starting and stopping.
News: 50 Cent Challenges Floyd Mayweather to Read a ‘Full Page’ of ‘Harry Potter’
Jimmy Kimmel wanted in on the action and said he would televise Floyd reading live on the show if he accepted.
Today, Floyd responded, making it clear he doesn't need 50's measly $750k, posting a pic of two paychecks that he received recently -- totaling over $72 million!
Floyd wrote, "Read this $72,276,000.00. God Bless."
