Hes never been one to self-censor and Jimmy Kimmel was up to his usual shenanigans in his recent interview with Playboy magazine.
The late night comic first praised The Tonight Show host Jay Leno, noting, Hes not just a smart politician but also a smart guy.
However, he has no problem taking shots at Leno. I always feel bad if I hurt anybodys feelings, but I dont believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesnt seem to be that worried about other peoples feelings.
Alluding to a 2010 sketch from Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy recalled, I can do a pretty good Leno imitation. It was a lot of fun to be him also much easier, particularly in constructing his monologue for that night.
Kimmel also talked about his face-to-face mocking of Jay for giving Conan OBrien the shaft- That was thrilling it really was and also kind of dangerous, because I realized he wanted to communicate to America that it was all just a friendly joke. That was the perception Leno clearly wanted out there.
The more I thought about it the madder it made me. I didnt want him to just get away scot-free with what was happening all over again.
