It takes a lot to get Howard to travel anywhere, but his good buddy Jimmy Kimmel marrying the beautiful and funny Molly McNearny was enough to get Howard and Beth out to Los Angeles over the weekend.
Howard and Beth shared a table with luminaries like Bob Iger, the head of Disney, Brad Grey, the head of Paramount, Matt Damon (whom Howard forgot had just played Liberace's boyfriend in Behind the Candelabra), Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and Johnny Knoxville... otherwise known as PJ to his friends. (Howard learned that his real name is Phillip John, hence the PJ, but was unsure how to make the move to start calling him that).
Howard resisted the urge to make a speech or do anything to draw attention to himself. Until the couple's first dance dragged on a little long and he walked out onto the dance floor and cut in, finishing out the slow dance with his head on Jimmy Kimmel's shoulder.
For the record, Jimmy was dressed in white silk pants and a white vest, which Howard said made him look like Tattoo from Fantasy Island.
Howard also made a new friend, Conan O'Brien sidekick Andy Richter. Howard said he realized this weekend just how much he loves hanging with Andy.
The only downside to the whole affair was the paparazzi hounding fellow guest Jennifer Aniston. Howard knows Jimmy banned them from the resort, yet they still somehow show up to get their shots.
