Of all the star-studded tributes to David Letterman during his last run on ‘Late Night,’ this one is our favorite. (It’s probably Letterman’s favorite, too.)
Julia Roberts has always ended her Letterman interviews with a big smooch, since her early appearances as some wide-grinning actress in Mystic Pizza. So when she said her goodbyes to Letterman on Wednesday night’s show, they revisited their decades of kisses with an amazing highlight reel, showing Letterman’s evolving ‘Late Night’ sets (and Roberts’ evolving hairstyles) over the years.
Look at how young they were here!
And fittingly, a genuinely sweet moment, they shared one last kiss.
Anyone else tearing up?
After the kiss, Roberts shared some kind words about her old friend. “I love you, and thank you for all the joy and the laughs and the intelligence you have brought to us for 33 years,” she said.
Letterman’s not known to be the cheeriest guy on Earth. But this is the smile of a man who’s found true bliss.
