Jeff Goldblum's 'Thank U, Jeff' hilariously parodies Ariana Grande. "Thank U, Jeff" is the "Thank U, Next" parody Arianators didn't know they needed. Jeff Goldblum appeared on "The Late Late Show" where he and host James Corden created their own version of Ariana Grande's hit track and music video. In the spoof, Corden dresses in silk pajamas and sings about the "Nine Months" actor while looking at his Goldblum-dedicated Burn Book that's filled with odes to the 66-year-old actor. "First saw him in 'The Fly,' where his face was grotesque. Then he won independence from an alien mess," Corden sang, referring to "Independence Day." "In 'Thor: Ragnarok,' his performance was classic. But who could forget the hot doctor that he played in 'Jurassic?'" Later in the video, Goldblum takes on Kris Jenner's imitation of Amy Poehler from the original video and holds up a video camera to record Corden on stage as he dances with men dressed as Goldblum's most iconic characters. Grande caught wind of the spoof and immediately requested Corden's Burn Book. "omg... ... may i please... please for christmas have the thank u, jeff book? it's for a friend. promise," she tweeted.

Jimmy Kimmel's daughter used Jennifer Aniston's backyard as a bathroom. Jimmy Kimmel and Jennifer Aniston played tit-for-tat Wednesday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," which resulted in the former "Friends" star revealing a stinker of a secret about the comedian's 4-year-old daughter, Jane. Reflecting on their Friendsgiving festivities, which Aniston, 49, hosts at her home the day before Thanksgiving, Kimmel, 51, griped about how her menu is similar to his on the actual holiday. "On Thanksgiving, I cook a lot of stuff, the normal turkey, yams or sweet potatoes, you know, the whole deal, but then at your event we had the same thing everyone had the night before again," Kimmel said. After Kimmel suggested switching up the dishes for her friendly event, Aniston then replied, "Listen, I'll make a deal. If we do this, can we talk about your children not using my backyard as a bathroom?" Aniston then revealed Kimmel's wife, Molly McNearney, told her about the incident a year later. "They said, 'We have to tell you something that happened.' And they said last year, cause Jane was a lot younger, she took a st in the backyard," Aniston explained. "Right next to the beautiful pool." The "Dumplin'" actress said McNearney asked the bartenders at Aniston's house for doggie bags. Kimmel told Aniston turkey was to blame. "You know why that happened? Because she was so full of turkey," he quipped. (PageSix)
