(May 14, 2015) – Julia Roberts and David Letterman have a bit of a reputation together. After all, Roberts has made 26 appearances on Letterman’s show over the years. Many of those appearances ended in a kiss.
During Wednesday’s show, Roberts confessed she didn’t want to make her first appearance with Letterman to promote Mystic Pizza all those years ago.
“I had seen you absolutely dismember young actresses of my kind of peer group,” Roberts said. “And I thought I’m gonna on and he’s gonna know within ten seconds what my IQ is. And you are going to like a samurai just sort of of like Benihana me in pieces and I’ll be left for dead and forgotten.”
“I’m not going to dispute this,” Letterman said. “But let me ask you this: what do you suppose is wrong with me? Why would I behave that way?”
After being pressed for an answer, Roberts said, “Because I think stupid people annoy you.”
After laughing, Letterman said, “Well, that answers my problem with self-loathing.”
The episode also featured a montage of Letterman’s and Roberts’ best kisses from the show—and then they shared a final kiss together on stage.
Letterman will host his final episode on May 20. Make sure to say #ThanksDave with videos and posts on social media.
