This video from Gawker shows some lowlights from David Letterman’s interviews on Late Night with female celebrities.For the record, most of the clips in this video are from the Late Show, not Late Night.
“Whether you regard the examples above as creepy lechery or benign flirting, this way of communicating is a part of David Letterman’s legacy,” writes author Rich Juzwiak....
Within the montage of awkward and uncomfortable moments, Letterman takes particular interest in women’s legs and… smells.
Obviously, Letterman was allowed to behave this way with impunity.
Especially when shown in this montage, his interaction with women appears creepy rather than innocent and amusing.
