At the side of Jimmy Kimmel, he usually meets international superstars every evening. During the Oscars, he made it a tradition for Hollywood’s crème de la crème to drink a shot of tequila with him. The resulting reactions are incredible. Yesterday he celebrated his 50th birthday. And as a result, many stars congratulated the lovable Guillermo Rodriguez.
EVERYBODY LOVES GUILLERMO
Everyone knows and loves the talk show personality who was born in Zacatecas, Mexico. For years, Guillermo has been assisting his boss Jimmy Kimmel. And the latter came up with something special for his friend. 50 shots of tequila should be emptied to Guillermo’s health.
50 + 1 STARS DRINK TEQUILA
Fifty stars sent a special video message to Guillermo. Charlize Theron even toasted to Guillermo’s health twice. And that at 2 p.m. Julie Bowen (Modern Family) raised her glass as early as 9 a.m.

The fake feud between Kimmel and Damon has been going on for over ten years. It is one of the funniest gags on TV and far beyond.
