11:35 pm
"jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- channing tatum, director paul feig, and music from pharrell williams with cleto and the cletones. and now, here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you for watching, thank you for coming. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: i appreciate it. if you're wondering what happened to my eye.
11:36 pm
i'll tell you what happened. some jerk back stage was mouthing off about you guys. he said this was not a good audience. said you're a bunch of losers and boozers, so i shoved him, and he punched me right in the face. this happened because i was defending your honor. i guess that makes me your hero. tatum is all ready to get channing tonight. channing tatum is here today. on the same day that the supreme court paved the way for gay marriage. so am i the luckiest guy in the world or what? [ cheers and applause ] channing has a new movie called "white house down." and we'll see some of that. and we have outtakes from the i want channing tatum, but for now, let's try to focus on paula deen, who did show up on her interview with matt lauer, she
11:37 pm
cancelled last week. she admitted she used the word "n," the same one your uncle uses. and since then, her empire has crumbled. the ham company she endorsed let her go. not a joke. now, today, walmart announced they will no longer stock her food products. and home depot said they won't carry whatever crap she sells to them either. this is the biggest scandal in the world of celebrity chefs, i think since mario bertel had sex. it got off to a rocky start when she tossed her keys to al roker. but -- it was an emotional interview. her message, though, was simple. her message was please keep paying me millions of dollars to eat mayonnaise on television. she even had her makeup artist draw her eyebrows curling
11:38 pm
upwards to the middle, and to show her remorse. she broke down when she talked about her grandson. >> i'll tell you about a conversation with my 7-year-old grandson. he stayed the night with me and i allowed him to stay up later than his bedtime, and i said -- i said you got me in trouble when you told your mommy and daddy that i let you stay up late. and he was playing with his ipad. and he looked up and he said, i don't tell lies. >> oh, gosh. >> jimmy: there is a silver lining in every situation. that is the thing, so -- i will say, by the way -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: as an italian-american, i'm offended by her grandson's use of the word guinea.
11:39 pm
at the end of the interview, she said i is what i is. i believe she was quoting gandhi. and she also issued an unusual challenge to her detractors. >> is there anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back? if you're out there, please pick up that phone. and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me. please. >> jimmy: well, you know what? she did ask for it. [ cheers and applause ] i'm sure she will be fine. very interesting, since this story broke, pre-sales of paula deen's upcoming cookbook have skyrocketed. the book is called paula deen's recipes, 250, on monday it was
11:40 pm
1500th on amazon, now it is 6th. to be fair, the only "n" word they use in the book is nutmeg, this is the kind of thing they can't afford to ignore. they made changes to wolfgang puck's book, it is called "i hate mexicans." what do you think of that, guillermo? >> it is crazy. >> jimmy: and the supreme court handed down the decision on the same-sex marriage today. until today it was defined as a contract between one man, one woman and the producers of "the bachelor" but that is no longer the case. in a 5-4 vote,ñi they struck do the defense of the marriage act that denied benefits to gay couples. every person must spend at least
11:41 pm
one yethe supreme court also considered proposition 8 which banned same-sex marriage here in california. the court ruled they didn't have the right to appeal its reversal. which means once again same-sex marriage will be legal in this state. the only catch is gays will be required to use straight wedding planners. there is a lot of news coverage of the rulings today. but the best news is on fox.com. this is the picture they ran on foxnews.com. really captured the historic significance of the ruling. it was a very good day for the lesbian couple who challenged the prop 8 in court. not only was the ruling a major victory this couple got a call from president obama while they were being interviewed live on msnbc. >> the president is on the line. from air force one, president obama, go ahead.
11:42 pm
>> mr. president, this is khris perry, we thank you so much for your support. >> well, you're very welcome. and i just want to say, happy gay weddings to you. happy lesbian weddings to you. happy wedding -- dear gays, lesbians -- happy weddings to you. do you hear my phone? what did you think? >> thank you, mr. president. >> yes, i wrote it myself. >> well, thank you, and while we celebrate today we know we have to roll up our sleeves and get to work for those in the 37 states that didn't get marriage equality. but we're well on our way, and we thank you for the leadership. you're invited to the wedding. >> that sounds terrible -- >> good-bye, thank you, mr. president >> jimmy: wow, what a weird thing for him to say, i think he is taking advantage of those air force one mimosas. and there is another scandal brewing in the irs, an internal
11:43 pm
watch group claimed the irs workers used credit cards to buy seemingly inappropriate things. one irs worker bought diet pills, romance novels and steaks to the irs. i don't know who that person is, but sounds like they may have a sadder life than bruce jenner, even. parts of the agency were also used to pay for kazoos, stuffed animals, and nerf balls is the irs running an underground chucky cheese we don't know about it? two of the irs cards were used to purchase -- if only two of the company employees used the credit card to buy porn, i consider that a win? i saw a commercial today, made in china, i feel compelled to share it with you. it is an d for a product called
11:44 pm
energy noodles. as far as i can tell, they give you a lot of energy. [ speaking in a foreign language ] >> jimmy: no wonder productivity is so high. >> jimmy: remember, if your mega bonus lasts more than four hours, please consult a physician. >> and espn announcing their body issue is going to feature nude photographs of a number of athletes, including 77-year-old golfer gary player, which is a big deal, because if you wanted to see a naked 77-year-old man in the past you had to go to the
11:45 pm
locker room at 24-hour fitness. i don't understand, i bet even gary player doesn't want to see gary player naked. but hey, maybe this will inspire older people to play golf. the race for mayor of new york city is getting interesting. the new poll shows that for the first time, the disgraced former congressman anthony weiner is the frontrunner. he was caught sending photos of his crotch while having the name weiner, simultaneously. he has 25% of his vote, in no small part thanks to this campaign that has been running. >> my weiner is strong. >> my weiner is proud. >> my weiner stands up for women. >> my weiner stands up for new york. >> my weiner is a good weiner. r >> a firm weiner. >> my weiner has a mole on it. >> it is time to give my weiner another chance.
11:46 pm
>> let's put my weiner to work. >> because my weiner is your weiner. >> my weiner is new york's weiner, and new york needs weiner, anthony weiner for mayor. paid for by, a bunch of new york weiner lovers. >> jimmy: we're going to take a break, but when we come back from that break we shot a special edition of "liewitness news." i think you will enjoy it. plus, channing tatum and music from pharrell. so don't ever leave me. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ unh ♪ ♪ hey! ♪ ♪ let's go! ♪ [ male announcer ] you can choose to blend in. ♪

11:54 pm
justin punched the person so hard she had to go to the hospital. is that okay? >> it depends. >> well, like what happened before that. >> well, she was clearly cheating. well, he is a boy, and boys mess around a lot. i don't think he meant to hurt her that much. >> what do you think of justin's new tattoo. >> i think whatever tattoo he gets is perfect on him, honestly. >> this is mike tyson with a mustache >> here is justin's newest arm tattoo. do you think it is hot that he has judge judy tattooed on his harm? >> yeah. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> so this one is very exciting. he got this last week. take a look. >> i love tattoos and i think it is so creative. he uses the belly button. pretty sexy, you like it? >> yeah, i love it.

12:05 am
and we were doing this sort of smuggling me in the back of cars and trunks. one time i even bailed out of the car and ran into the woods. i had to have somebody come pick me up a half hour later, i'm like sweating on a golf course, hiding under a bridge. >> jimmy: what kind of dad do you think you will be when she is a teenager? >> suicidal? i don't know, if she is anything like i was. >> jimmy: were you bad? >> well you know, the normal stuff, sneak out. and what not >> jimmy: you would sneak out? >> yes. >> jimmy: on week nights? >> yes, my dad would snore, the windows would collapse a little bit, we had a sliding glass door, because it was florida, and on the inhale of the snore, you would be just like -- [ noises ] >> and you know you slide out.

long time. and he sends me in. ronald wore enormous shoes which i never wore before. so this was pretty much my entrance into the room. the expert ronald walks in like that. >> jimmy: were they angry? >> well, i played it off as comedy. i was sort of the clumsy ronald. i had these balls, they were lighter than nerf balls to juggle. >> jimmy: are you sure that tom was not screwing with you, it sounds like he might have been. did you actually work as -- did you get the job? >> i got the gig, my first gig, they send me to the closing day of school, you know, the last day of school, elementary school. and all the mcdonald's reps are in the back. i'm trying to do this magic show, doing a poor decision, i said let's do the chicken mcnuggets.

i did this pan, i take a top off and a rubber chicken jumped out. i see all of them writing no, do not do that. then i panicked, i'm like okay, i'm going to give out candy, i went down, you're supposed to have them come to a safe area. and then bring the kids in. i go down, it was like the beatles had walked in. they attack, they reach into my pockets, he has candy. they tear my pockets off. candy is flying everywhere. and i'm getting mobbed. i had more candy, i take it, throw it in the air. give the candy, they all run, i run out of the place with my ronald assistant. i am like get in the car, he pulls up, i'm like get out. i jump in the car and rev it up. and i see the head of mcdonald's in toledo. he is running toward me with a big smile on his face, running, ronald, ronald, i shake his hand, he goes ronald doesn't drive.
