Julia Roberts Investigates Letterman's Marriage at Conan's Expense


A pretty woman has the ability to get a lot out of David Letterman, and so it should come as no surprise that The Original Pretty Woman™, Julia Roberts, can get the most out of him. On Letterman's couch for the first time since his marriage to Regina Lasko, Roberts flat-out grilled him about his under-wraps marriage, barreling through Letterman's clear reluctance to talk about the matter as though she was the host and he was simply a prison-freed Paris Hilton. Then, came the Conan dig.

After a smart bit where Roberts asked whether Lasko had taken his name, Letterman assented, "Yes, she's Dave," which sent Roberts into a paroxysm of laughter that she eventually curtailed with "You are so much funnier than other people who talk at this time of the evening." Who knew that Letterman had assembled a secret task force of Conan-bashing celebrities to do his late-night dirty work?

    That was low and uncalled for on her behalf. Just because people disliked Jay is no reason to displace that hatred onto Conan. It's a classy tactic, ain't it?

  • Anonymous says:

    There is no reason to bash Conan. No reason whatsoever. Conan has always been a big supporter of Letterman, and even had his picture at his old Late Night studio next to other Tonight Show hosts (Leno was absent). So the bashing is really undeserved. Why can't they make remarks about how they actually have GOOD competition now instead of that hack Leno.

  • Aaron says:

    This show you how out of touch is Julia Roberts, Conan is the funniest man of late night.

  • Well, like it or not, now that Jay is out the way, the ratings war is on, and Tivo doesn't count, so stands must be taken. I say, in retaliation, Conan should wheel Patrick Swayze out to say "Nobody put's Coco in a corner!"

  • sixhundred says:

    is Julia Roberts doing a Tom Cruise impression in this clip? Or has Tom Cruise been doing an impression of that scene with the jewelry box in Pretty Woman for the last 10 years?

  • Inhaler says:

    But which one is going to get Will Smith's nod?
