Sleazy Letterman redux

'At least I was wearing underwear': Emma Watson talks about Harry Potter premiere wardrobe malfunction | Mail Online

If he was closer to her in age, it would just seem sleazy, but as he is old enough to be her grandfather, it comes across as completely inappropriate.

I saw this earlier, I thought she handled it well...

I think if this was some 19 year old woman who did her first movie and it was American Pie it wouldn't be creepy to anyone.

It was probably her publicist's idea to focus on it in the interview.

I think Letterman and most talk shows do pre interviews and the topics and questions from which he will choose are known to the guest. Not saying it makes it any less odd and maybe creepy, but at least if that happened she was prepared for it. Maybe he asked Daniel Radcliffe about being naked in Equus, would that be less creepy? It seems as if every interviewer has asked him about that, young and old.

Letterman is like a 60 year-old twentysomething. Having him ask Emma about her malfunction is no different from a 25 year-old asking the same thing.

As Mrs. Springsteen said, guests on talk shows are usually prepared for the questions. That is because the guest and the host rehearse the interviews. So, Emma knew what was coming, and to me she handled it like the lady she is.

Annnd, it's something that was being covered in the media, anyway. Is Letterman seriously going to have to run everything he says from now on by the PC police in order to appease some of you?

Maybe he was hoping she would pull a Drew Barrymore.

^ I was thinking of that too. How old was Drew and how old was Dave?

I blame Dave's wife, it must be the name...

I didn't even know who the fuck Emma Watson was, honestly.
I haven't seen any of those Harry Potter films.
Although I do know who Daniel Radcliffe is, would be kind of hard to not know him.
