Late-night comedians still have plenty of material in the new year thanks to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and, of course, our own President Donald Trump, whose New Year’s resolution apparently wasn’t to curb his outlandish statements.

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!" the president tweeted Tuesday evening.

"Happy New Year, everybody!" said Jimmy Kimmel on ABC. “We have two maniacs with nuclear warheads bragging about who has the bigger button.”

When I started out acting, I had a suspicion this [stardom] could happen, but that was all. I didn't care. I mean, I really didn't care. I had no commitments, no kids, no one to be responsible to. But then, in a funny kind of way, the less you care, the easier you seem to get there.
