Emma Stone, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Different actors respond differently to their work. Emma Stone falls into the category of people who get uncomfortable watching herself on the screen, along with her 'The Help' co-star Octavia Spencer. This made for an uncomfortable evening, as Stone related on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

When the First Lady of the United States invites you to join her for a screening of your movie, you don't say no. But when she put Stone and Spencer right in the front row, there was no way they could avoid the discomfort of seeing their performances.

One thing that might have helped, but was sorely lacking, was alcohol.

President Obama Discusses Birth Certificate on 'Oprah' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted May 2nd 2011 6:30PM
President Barack Obama on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'Barack and Michelle Obama sat down for a taped interview with Oprah Winfrey the day President Obama released his long-form birth certificate to the press. That interview aired Monday on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Since the interview was taped before Sunday's news about the death of Osama bin Laden, much of the conversation centered on the birther issue.

When the issue first came up, President Obama said he didn't take the controversy seriously.

"When it first came up, were you thinking, 'I hope I was born here,'" asked Winfrey. Obama said no. "I was there," he said. "It seemed unlikely that my 18-year-old mother had plotted at the time, saying, you know what, he's going to be president, so let's pay off the newspapers." While the President found it amusing, Michelle Obama was less entertained.

Morgan recalled his experience at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Apparently First Lady Michelle Obama greeted him, and he "got hard."

"Michelle looked like a tall mountain, and I'm gonna climb it just 'cause it's there," Morgan said. George Lopez seemed stunned, but he and the studio audience laughed at the joke.

Barbara Walters, Michelle Obama, and Jill Biden on 'The View'Electoral politics is a nasty business, and there is no bigger target for invective than those who occupy the Oval Office. Monday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), First Lady Michelle Obama said she prefers to focus on the positive. Appearing alongside Second Lady Jill Biden, Mrs. Obama said that despite the heated rhetoric, she has a positive experience when she's out in public, meeting regular people.

"What we have to do in this country is remember who we are," she said. "That's the reason why I like to travel and to get out, because, look, no matter what people say, when they see you, they're excited and they're proud."

Having detractors, she went on, is just part of the process. "But we're one country, and I think people know that," she said. Even so, Mrs. Obama has been working out to prepare for the rigors of the campaign trail.

Michelle Obama speaks of military families on 'Oprah'The day after President Barack Obama gave the annual State of the Union address, first lady Michelle Obama went on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated) to talk about her commitment to military families.

Modern first ladies usually take on a cause or issue to advocate, and Mrs. Obama has made hers the condition of military families.

"Because so few Americans are serving, you've got families that are dealing with their fourth and fifth and sixth deployment," said Mrs. Obama. "Months go by where birthdays are missed. Parents struggling to do this alone, answering the questions for their children, 'when's mom or dad coming home.' "

Sarah Palin Serves Up Some Food at a Local Diner (VIDEO)

Sarah Palin Attacks Michelle Obama's Anti-Obesity Campaign, Then Serves Up Some FoodTonight on 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' (Sun., 9PM ET on TLC), Sarah and Piper served up some dishes at a local diner.

But first, Sarah headed to the great outdoors, accompanied by the extended Palin clan. While standing in the wilderness, Sarah said it was great to escape the media "idiots" who don't like her family. Which was a little odd, considering that she was still surrounded by the media -- that is, by the camera crews who are filming her family for a reality TV show.

Next, Sarah made treats for the kids. "Where are the s'mores ingredients?" she asked. She added that she was making the s'mores in "honor" of Michelle Obama, " ... who said the other day that we should not have dessert." Presumably, this was meant as another attack on Ms. Obama's campaign against childhood obesity.

Matthew Morrison Has Sexy Abs, Michelle Obama CrushWhen Matthew J. Morrison visited 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Jay Leno was kind enough to show off a picture of the 'Glee' actor that appeared in 'Vogue.'

Seeing his six-pack on full display, fellow guest Katherine Heigl said, "Who knew that's what's under there, huh? Wow!" "Sixteen hours of lipo," joked Morrison.

Then Leno followed that up with another revelation: "I read in 'In Style' magazine ... that you have a crush on Michelle Obama." Honestly, the last part of that sentence is less surprising (and more believable) than the first: Jay Leno reads 'In Style'?
