Jay Leno arrived to his show this past weekend, and right as he was pulling up to park, he hit a police car. Jay seemed more concerned with the damage to his car than to the police car – he was driving a Tesla, after all – but it seemed all that happened was a little tire on tire action, so there was no real damage. You can see the video at tmz.com. The police were more than accommodating, telling Jay he could get into the club to do his set and that they’d figure it out later. Jay hasn’t had the best of luck with cars lately, first with the garage fire that burned him and now this, hitting an officer’s car.

Nicole Kidman just purchased a new used hat from her friend, Hugh Jackman, and she paid quite a bit for it. Nicole attended a performance of "The Music Man" starring Hugh over the weekend, where they held a charity auction for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. An autographed hat of Hugh's was being auctioned and looked to be close to going for $19,000 when Nicole offered $100,000 for it. While most of the audience was in shock and gave Nicole a standing ovation, Hugh was surprised, saying, “I’ve known Nic for almost 30 years. I’ve worked with her. I can tell you this is not a surprise to me. She is one of the most generous souls I know."
