ABC has officially apologized for a skit aired last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live! following complaints from several organizations. The bit was called “Kids Table” and it featured Kimmel hosting a round table discussion with kids to mock the childish behavior of politicians during the government shutdown. During the segment, one of the kids made an unscripted comment that ignited outrage after being asked about the debt America owes China.

Although Jimmy had previously stated the ceremony would be “mostly a family affair,” it appears as though those plans were thrown by the wayside as close to 300 friends and family were in attendance, including tons of A-list celebrities like Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia De Rossi, Howard Stern, Jennifer Aniston, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.
Oh, and of course Matt Damon!

Several years ago, Jeremy Renner pitched a tent on a flight from London to Los Angeles — but he wasn’t camping! The Bourne Legacy actor needed some sleep and unfortunately for him, the plane ride was the only time his busy schedule would allow. The problem? Jeremy doesn’t sleep well on planes so when someone offered him a sleeping pill, he took it right away. However, the ‘A’ he assumed to stand for Ambien was actually a ‘V’! See the hilarious interview, find out which famous actor was riding with him on the flight and what the flight attendants thought about this whole new approach to the “Bourne Legacy.”
