“Can you give me your ‘gayest look?’ ”
“Wow. That is so something I don’t want to do.”
This non-funny joke heard round the blogs last week was uttered by none-other than funnyman Jay Leno, who was deep in conversation with guest Ryan Philippe. Controversy ensued and the usually drama-free host offered an apology:

“In talking about Ryan’s first role, I realize that what I said came out wrong,” the host of NBC’s Tonight Show said in a statement to PEOPLE. “I certainly didn’t mean any malice. I agree it was a dumb thing to say, and I apologize.”
