Kate Hudson Plays 'Box of Lies' With Jimmy Fallon

This past May, Jennifer Lawrence and Jimmy Fallon played a hilarious game of Box of Lies. Last night it was Kate Hudson's turn to play.

The Wish I Was Here actress had the case of the giggles on the Tonight Show when she had to use her acting skills during a game of Box of Lies with the host. Hudson could not contain her laughter; her laugh is so infectious that she had Fallon laughing!

The point of the game is to decide whether the opponent is lying or telling the truth when describing what's in the box that was selected. Hudson went first and pulled out a spoon in a bowl of pennies and told the truth. Fallon pulled out an orange hamburger and lied, which earned him some points.

The game got even funnier when Hudson pulled out a plate of jello with a turtle in it.

Watch the videos below. You'll definitely be laughing too!

George Harrison Memorial Tree Killed By Beetles

A tree that was planted to honor the memory of George Harrison from the Beatles has been destroyed by beetles. No seriously... the Los Angeles Times reported that the pine tree died due to an insect infestation.

The legendary songwriter died at age 58 in 2001. The tree was planted in 2004 near Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles where he spent the last few years of his life gardening.

His tree has a plaque that reads, "In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener." The plaque also includes a quote from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, "For the forest to be green, each tree must be green."

A new tree will be planted in its place soon. Hopefully the beetles will "Let it Be!"

Looks like Philip Seymour Hoffman had different plans for his kids in his will - that they wouldn't grow up to be spoiled like the kids of Hollywood stars.

In court documents that were revealed by the New York Post, Hoffman stressed that he didn't want his son Cooper, 10, and daughters Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5, to be considered "trust fund kids."
