"Andi, you lit me up. You made me feel those things that people go a lifetime to find," his letter begins. "and I feel like I made you feel the same. I truly hoped we would have made it into the real world, where there would be no arbitrary dead-line, where those stresses that came with that environment would have melted away, where we could have had the goofy, fun, exciting relationship that I know we could have. What we had was real to me, and it was amazing."

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!
