It is really really really cold in NYC, so the only way to stay warm outside is to dress in a lot of layers. That is exactly what Sean Hayes did to make his way over to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman tonight. He wore gloves, a hat, a ski mask, a down winter coat, a scarf, a down vest, a zippered jacket, a sweater, a headband and boots all on top of his suit. You can’t do a talk show dressed like that, so he took it all off in front of the audience before he sat down to talk to the CBS host.
While it only took him :30 seconds to strip down, I wonder how long it took for him to put on those 10 items?
Seeing how dressed up all of those people were just to take a walk outside, reminded me how much I don’t miss winter.
Will Smith knows how to make an entrance and yesterday he got The Late Show crowd going when he walked out. Before he even sat down, he grabbed the mic and sang his hit Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It. The audience did their best to jam along with him, but they were way too white. Either way, it got them clapping.
When he finally sat down, he told the CBS late night host that rap was for him. To which Letterman told him that he can’t do that. Smith responded by telling him, “No, no, you can…You can, Dave. It’s in you. There’s a Negro inside of you. Dave.” As soon as Letterman heard that, he had this big a$$ smile on his face and said, “Wow! Wow! That’s the best news I have had in years. I gotta run home and surprise the wife!” After that, Smith completely lost it like I’ve never seen him lose it.
When it comes to the white audience, maybe they can use the app that Jimmy Kimmel and Anthony Anderson introduced on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday called brothr.
Dakota Johnson is on The Late Show tonight to talk about some movie she is in, and her mother had a message for David Letterman. Melanie Griffith wanted to let the late night CBS host know that she loves him. He told the actress that he also really loves her mom. Anastasia Grey reminded him that her mother brought him handcuffs one time, and he tried to avoid the statement. Then she asked him, “So , are you my dad?” He got all flustered and nervous as he agreed with her when she said was kidding.
She then tried to let him off the hook and said that she knows who her father is. We all know her dad is because she looks just like Don Johnson. Doesn’t she have the Miami Vice detective’s face and the Working Girl’s voice?
Now back to Letterman, you know for second, it kind of looked he was probably doing the math. Which makes sense because Griffith got pregnant with Dakota around the time she was promoting Working Girl. So wait, maybe one day he will do a Darth Vader and be like “No, I am your father.” Where’s Maury Povich when you really need him???
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is on The Late Show tonight and David Letterman asked him about Deflate gate. He wanted to know why weren’t the Super Bowl champs’ footballs fully inflated during the final playoffs game. Belichick explained, “Well, we all know that as the footballs get colder, they deflate. Scientifically.”
Now he is referring to pigskins, but I just pictured him talking about another type of ball that gets smaller in cold weather. You know the two I am talking about. Did I score a touchdown with that joke???
I think from Jeff Goldblum’s appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman with his wife, Emilie Livingston, we know why he finally decided to tie the knot at 62 years old! Don’t you agree?
But now I have to wonder if she quoted from his movie the The Fly when she did that for him the first time. You know, “Be afraid, be very afraid!” I am sure he was afraid, but also very excited!
Anna Kendrick was on The Late Show yesterday after the Christmas Toy segment and she told David Letterman that one of the toys looks like a “fur covered dildo.” The CBS late host told her he didn’t realize that until she mentioned it to him. After someone on the set brings it out to him, he tells her that is all he could see the cat toy as. I don’t know what took him so long because just like Anna that was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw it. So much so, I am going to order a Cat Paw for my pussy. For $9.99 (the price not inches) it is the gift that keeps on giving until she moans, “Meow! Meow! Meow!” and starts purring like crazy. I just don’t know if I should get her the black one, the orange one or the white one? I guess, I will get her one of each! I know she will love it because it is so purrfect for her.
BTW watch as Shannon Eis tried to hint that the toy is more than it appears to be on the surface.
Ben Stiller was on The Late Show yesterday and the actor told David Letterman about the time he went on a hot air balloon ride with his family in Italy. All the pictures we have seen of that form of transportation make it seem like a dream come true, but for Zoolander it was nightmare. He went into complete detail about what it is like to prepare for the ride, travel in it and then come crashing down. His ordeal was so terrifying, it will make you never want to go up in one. He made it sound like it is just as traumatic as going to see most of his movies. And that is something none of us want to relive.
So listen to his tale and let me know if it makes you want to cross off hot air balloon ride of your bucket list without ever going in one?
BTW some sad but expected news came out about The Late Show today, David Letterman’s final appearance on the show will be May 20th. So mark your calendars for his goodbye.
David Letterman was brave enough to have Joaquin Phoenix on his show for a second time after that infamous interview, and the actor did another crazy thing on The Late Show yesterday.
Phoenix told the CBS late night host that he has met “The One” and he asked her to marry him. Then he made the announcement that he is engaged. Everyone was so happy for him, but the only thing is that he lied.
This morning he got real with Good Morning America and explained, “I think like my life’s so boring, and it seemed like something exciting to talk about, and I wanted the audience to like me.” Then he added, “They really like people getting married.” If the press is sad that he is not betrothed, then he offered, “I can get engaged again, if you like.” Like we will believe him if he really said he was going to married after this fake out.
And talking about fake outs, you know the expression ” Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” I am sure that is going through Letterman’s mind right about now. That and he is probably so happy he is retiring, so he doesn’t ever have to interview that eccentric actor again. I can’t believe he had him on the show after that wacky interview he did for his atrocious movie I’m Still Here.
Jake Gyllenhall was on The Late Show yesterday and David Letterman asked him to demonstrate the “Salmon” on him. What is it? Basically, you go up to someone who is standing with their legs apart, scream “Salmon!” as you quickly move your hand back and forth between their legs several times. Even though it doesn’t look like it would be fun to have it happen to you, the CBS late night seemed to really enjoy it. And I enjoyed watching it!
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the few younger actors who really gets David Letterman excited about interviewing again and she didn’t disappoint yesterday on The Late Show.
Their chat started off with him telling her he really liked her friends backstage, and then she told the CBS late night host about the first time she met one of them. She explained that the first time she saw the girl, she said the dirtiest thing she ever heard and he was obsessed about knowing what it was. The Oscar winner said it is too dirty to say on television, so she whispered it to him in his ear. He quickly showed his excitement to what she just said and made a dirty hand gesture with his fingers, but I don’t think on purpose.
And the interview just gets better or worse, depending how you look at it, from there. So spend the next 20 minutes watching one of the greatest late night interviews in a while. Plus, you want to see Letterman’s reaction to when she asks him, “You want to get out of here?”
