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?
