Beyonce was a guest on the show when funnyman Martin called in with his compliments for the blushing pop superstar. The actor, who plays bumbling detective Jacques Clouseau in the movie remake, said, "I was watching the show and there you are. I thought, 'I'd better call in.' We had the premiere last night and you were so fantastic in the movie and so lovely and you're singing was so beautiful. It was just thrilling. I want to congratulate you on that."

*Jamie Foxx has rubbished press reports he didn't get along with his Miami Vice co-star Colin Farrell, insisting they are friends and that Farrell has even been staying at his house since leaving rehab. The actors became pals as they tackled a gruelling 10-month shoot on the film, which ended with Farrell checking himself into a clinic to treat exhaustion. Farrell has since checked out of rehab. Foxx says, "He's doing great. He's at the crib, he's at my house, chillin', you know hanging out. "He had a couple little bumps, but we were all there for him. It's good to see a guy win."
* Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are making lists of weird and wacky names for their new baby, so they can give it an even more unique moniker than their 21-month-old daughter Apple.

Danner says, "It is likely that Gwyneth's new child will have an equally uncommon name. We love unusual names in the family."
