Olivia Wilde is magical in the upcoming comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," starring Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, but the actress' real passion lies with all things wild. Seriously. That's why she changed her surname. "The smell of the sweat of the animals—it gets me going," Olivia told our own Josh Horowitz during the latest episode of our web series After Hours. "So I decided I wanted my name to reflect my feeling about that."
What else did we learn during "Wild Animal Kingdom"? Well, for one, Olivia looks particularly lovely in a safari hat (or two strategically placed...). Also, dogs do not like Josh. But we don't really want to get into the reasons for that because ewwwww.

A word of warning, superstars: If you're particularly susceptible to the mind-blowing effects of total cutesy-wootsy-ness, you may want to grab hold of a nice, sturdy piece of furniture before watching our latest After Hours. Because it's time for a new installment of "Adorable Things," our segment dedicated to the appreciation of all things fluffy and cuddly—and today's clip features dangerous levels of lovability. It can all be summed up in six words:
Nick Offerman in a bunny hat.
Yep, that's right: Actor Nick Offerman is the most adorable man, maybe even the most adorable thing, ever to grace the face of the earth. He's cuter than a basket of puppies. He's cuter than a hedgehog in a party hat. He's cuter than two baby otters, holding hands, eating cupcakes, while wearing matching footie pajamas with special holes cut for their tails. And in this After Hours, the "Parks and Recreation" star shares with us the secrets of his adorability, from his most squeezable facial features to his heart-melting vocal inflections to his very own version of baby talk. How cute is it? So cute we actually squeed ourselves to death. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Until just now, we never know how very, very badly we wanted to play a "Star Wars"-specific version of the classic game of options "F--k, Marry, Kill", with "Admission" stars Paul Rudd and Tina Fey...but we want to. Oh, god, we want to! Because that's just what MTV's Josh Horowitz got to do when Tina and Paul stopped by for the latest episode of After Hours, where they proved themselves to be not just talented actors, but also excellent logicians when it came to determining which characters from the "Star Wars" franchise would make the best lover, partner, and/or murder victim!
Highlights from the video include: a vote of approval for the Linda Ronstadt Spouse Acceptability Litmus Test, the best spontaneous use of the phrase "wookie nookie" ever recorded in human history, and Tina's matter-of-fact suggestion that any discerning woman would sleep with Darth Vader—you know, for the story.
One question was on everyone's mind at last night's red carpet before the Oscars, aside from "How awesome is Jennifer Lawrence?" People wanted to know why Kristen Stewart showed up to the big event on crutches.
We heard some rumors about broken glass, but it all sounded a little suspicious to us, so we went to our own inside source, Kristen's "Twilight" co-star Peter Facinelli, to see what he knew about the incident.
"That's what I wanted to know from you," Peter told MTV News. "I don't know [what happened to Kristen]. I was nowhere near her. I didn't push her or anything. I didn't do it. It wasn't me. I just saw her on crutches. I have to text her and find out what happened. She's not clumsy. Bella's clumsy. It's just a movie."
It's Friday, and we'd be lying if we said we weren't nibbling on a few dark chocolates as we wrap up our week. But, thankfully, we're not the only ones with food on the brain. In fact, "Glee" star Kevin McHale may be a man after our own hearts (and stomachs) as far as noshing is concerned.
Of course, this raises one (well, maybe two) very important questions: What exactly are Snacks Nos. 1 and 2? INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW, KEV.
Honestly, we're not really sure where to begin with this latest episode of MTV's web series After Hours, in which "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" stars Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood play a round of Would You Rather with our own Josh Horowitz. Did we mention the main thrust of the clip's final moments is "penis fingers"? Like, for serious.
If that tantalizing tease doesn't get you clicking (with fingers of the regular or phallic variety), then how about the promise of a science lesson from Shia? (Sample: "You can't eat with hair!")
So, yeah. That's about all we can say about this video. Because, uh, wow. We just, um, yeah, don't know. Watch?

While nobody does romance better than Nicholas Sparks, nobody does romance worse than the stars of the new Nicholas Sparks movie "Safe Haven."
In the latest episode of MTV's After Hours, our very own Josh Horowitz sits down with the charming and talented Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel to get some tips on how to how to keep your relationship with that special someone going strong. It’s quickly revealed that while these two have great instincts on screen, they don’t exactly have the best advice off-screen as Julianne describes feeding raw meat to Ryan Seacrest and Josh Duhamel may or may not wear something along the lines of the Rubber Man costume from "American Horror Story."
Maybe you should just watch for yourself...but you’ve been warned.
Oh, P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day!
You'd think with the mega millions Daniel Radcliffe earned over the course of eight Harry Potter films, he'd be able to swing a measly hotel room in Park City, Utah. But that, apparently, was not the case during the recent Sundance Film Festival—where the actor was promoting his Beat biopic "Kill Your Darlings"—because the erstwhile boy wizard had to bunk up with MTV News!
Of course, we couldn't let him nosh on our potato chips or take a cat nap in our twin-size bed without a thorough vetting first, which is where our own Josh Horowitz came in. Because nobody gets down to the pith of a person quite like our intrepid reporter. (And by "pith" we mean "deep-seated fear and hatred.")

Jennifer Lawrence, having been officially declared the most desirable woman in the world by a million-bajillion dudes, has clearly moved on to a new goal: making the world's population of ladies want so very badly to be her BFF. How else to explain her hilarious, candid, self-deprecating moment during last night's appearance on "Conan," where the actress confessed to having awkwardly followed around 1990s sitcom hunk John Stamos in order to admire his shapely posterior?
"He was at a party and I turned into—I was a perverted guy," she said. "I was, like, following him into rooms and staring at his ass."
Oh, JLaw. WE COULD NOT LOVE YOU MORE. But it doesn't even end there; lately, it seems like the star is on a mission to flood the media with absurdly quotable lines that illustrate in no uncertain terms her immense, unending capacity for outrageous sass. And if you happened to miss out on the latest batch, don't sweat it; we've picked our top five favorites and put them on a lovely list: The Five Best Jennifer Lawrence Quotes In Recent Memory. (Because "of all time" would have us here all day.)
He might be two movies deep into "The Hunger Games" franchise, but all that action in the arena hasn't dampened Josh Hutcherson's thirst for competition. The actor was one of two dozen Hollywood favorites who took the field for this weekend's DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl, a friendly flag football game that revs up fans for the high-octane action of the Super Bowl.
Josh was the only tribute on this year's teams, but the vampire-related franchises of the entertainment world were spectacularly well-represented: Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Ryan Kwanten and Peter Facinelli all spent some time on the field. And for those who care, it was the Blue team (led by real, actual football player Michael Strahan) who passed, tackled and touchdown-ed their way to victory on Saturday...but let's be honest, the real appeal of the Celebrity Beach Bowl is less about the game itself and more about seeing our favorite celebs wearing shorts, talking smack and rolling around in the sand. Which they did. And it was fantastic.
