Jimmy Kimmel Covers 'THR' Summer Double Issue

Jimmy Kimmel Covers 'THR' Summer Double Issue

Jimmy Kimmel is surrounded by superheros and cartoon characters on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Summer Double Issue.

Here is what the 43-year-old talk show host had to share with the mag:

On appearing on Jay Leno‘s show after spoofing him: “I had just made fun of the guy. I had exaggerated everything that’s annoying about him and physically looked like a clown. It’s bad enough to run into somebody if you’ve made fun of them, but to be on television with them?”

On finding entertainment for his first show: “I came up with this man who in his Yellow Pages ad said he was a hairstylist to the stars, so I brought him in and interviewed him about some of the hairstyles. When I got home, my parents, my sister, and all of my friends had listened to it, and they were so excited. I was just so turned on by that.”

On his fellow talk show hosts: “The shows are more competitive than the hosts are.” Jimmy said he met Craig Ferguson and Conan O’Brien only once and has not met Jimmy Fallon.
