Antonion Banderas & Salma Hayek, 'The Graham Norton Show'There is an evident closeness between Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek in interviews. But perhaps they are starting to get on one another's nerves with all the press they've been doing for 'Puss in Boots.' On 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America) the pair were bickering like an old married couple.

It got so bad that fellow guest Jimmy Carr had to interject a few times, finally offering up a solution. Hayek kept teasing Banderas for his claims -- which were true, like training with the Spanish Olympic swordfighting team for his role as Zorro -- and his accent.

Robin Williams Talks Michael Jackson and Propofol, Which He's Taken (VIDEO)

Robin Williams, 'The Graham Norton Show'Propofol was the powerful drug that was administered to Michael Jackson before his death, and helped lead to the manslaughter charge against his doctor, Conrad Murray. On 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), Robin Williams talked about the power of the drug and his own experiences with it.

Put quite simply, Williams was on Propofol during heart surgery, giving a pretty clear indication of its strength. "It's a devastatingly powerful drug that has to be administered in a hospital situation, and he was doing it at home," Williams said of Jackson.

He talked about waking up from the surgery, disoriented from the drug. He'd received his surgery in Cleveland, and yet when he was told where he was, his first question was, "Why?"

Johnny Depp Talks About US Customs Pulling Guns on Him for 'Drugs' (VIDEO)

Johnny Depp, 'The Graham Norton Show'On 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), Johnny Depp said he once told a customs agent that he had piranha and vampire bats in one of his bags. We thought he was cracking a joke for Norton's audience. Then, we thought maybe he was cracking a joke for the customs officials.

It turns out he really did have these things, along with a powdered vitamin supplement that somehow exploded all over the contents of the bag. At this point, Ricky Gervais completely hijacked the interview to get Depp back on point. The actor was talking about the powder, but that clearly wasn't the most interesting part of this story.

Kate Winslet Carried Richard Branson's Mother From a House Fire (VIDEO)

Kate Winslet, 'The Graham Norton Show'Kate Winslet is a hero, though not to hear her tell it. Apparently, in her reality, everybody runs toward a burning fire and carries people down the stairs and to safety. She was more concerned about her support, or lack thereof, on 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America).

Actually, in the moment when a fire broke out at Richard Branson's house, she decided she wasn't concerned at all.

"I started to put on a bra, then I thought, No that's gonna take me too long," she revealed. This was, apparently, a detail the press did not feel their readers needed to know in their reports of the dramatic incident, so Winslet filled us in.

Cameron Diaz, 'The Graham Norton Show'In her new film 'Bad Teacher,' Cameron Diaz got the opportunity to act with her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake. She told 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America) that their shared history actually helped them with the chemistry, and particularly their more intimate scenes.

"It was our goal to make the least sexiest sex scene that's ever been caught on film, and I really believe that we succeeded," she explained. "I don't think we could have achieved it if it was some guy I didn't know."

The familiarity she had with Timberlake allowed them to shake off any jitters they might have about a sex scene and turn it into the awkward beast they were looking for.

Gwyneth Paltrow Shows Off Rap Skills on 'The Graham Norton Show' (VIDEO)

Gwyneth Paltrow, 'The Graham Norton Show'Gwyneth Paltrow has long proven herself as a so-called "double threat" in the entertainment industry. She's endeared herself as a singer to a whole new generation with her turn as Holly Holiday on 'Glee,' featuring on several hit tracks for the musical series.

Now, thanks to her turn on 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), we can add hardcore ganster rapper to her repertoire.

Graham Norton tried to stump her on '90s hip-hop, but he didn't go very obscure with it. Paltrow immediately identified 'Straight Outta Compton' as the groundbreaking debut album by N.W.A.

More impressively, though, she knew the lyrics to the title track, though she did clarify: "There's one word I can't say." The rest, Norton assured us, could be censored.

What to Watch Weekend, Jan. 10-11

'24'
(Sun., 8PM, Fox) 7th season premiere
Jack Bauer's on trial for his interrogation tactics, Tony Almeida's alive and CTU has been disbanded, which proves to be just the right amount of drama to get this new season off to a great start.

Fans have been waiting for more than a year (that darn writers strike!) for new episodes, and these first four hours (which continue Monday night at 8) were worth the wait, as the first female President of the United States (Cherry Jones) faces a national security threat and calls on – who else? – Jack to help ferret out the terrorists behind it.

And it's that search for the bad guys that leads to a very familiar – and previously very dead, or so we thought – face.

Monty PythonMay as well starting laughing now! On May 26, BBC America will air a 10-hour marathon of Monty Python's Flying Circus. The network has just snagged all four seasons of the legendary comedy series, including a couple of specials they did for German TV.

As every fan of great comedy knows, the Monty Python troupe consisted of Michael Palin, Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Graham Chapman and Terry Jones. Monty Python's Flying Circus debuted on BBC on October 5, 1969, and over the years the shows have been shown over and over again, becoming classic. Now that they are coming to BBC America, it's a chance for fans -- new and old -- to watch them one more time -- and DVR them if you're smart. Unless you already have the DVDs.
