We will have  video of the full interview up in our galleries shortly, stay tuned! UPDATE: We now have the full interview here for download in our video galleries.

Letterman is the least funniest person I think I’ve ever seen on TV. Emma did great, despite Letterman showing a picture of her in her underwear to everyone in the world. He knew nothing of the film or past films she’s been in and made us American’s look like bumbling idiots. He’s a disgrace to our society.

No way I think she did just fine. She totally held her own with Dave. Dave Letterman has always been a bit of a jerk but he’s been like that with everyone.

I knew they were going to pull up that little misshap, I just knew it. Poor Emma, though at least she was wearing underwear, and she handled him very well. I did find the show pretty bad and remembered why I don’t watch Letterman any more, but i turned it over to Conan, and remembered why I don’t watch him either.

everyone should watch this vid then watch her last interview with david letterman!
some questions and responses were repeated again, which is pretty boring.but she was much more vivacious and interesting in the other one.she even reveals some fav past times :P
she was incredibly quiet and self-conscious in this vid…

You either like Letterman, or you don’t. I happen to like him and have been watching him for years. He says many oddball things to get laughs,. Asking if this is the fourth film was one of them. I am sure he knew this was the 6th film. He does this to try to illicit humorous responses from his guests. sometimes it works, sometimes it fall flat. Last night it worked. Emma was great and had some wonderfully funny lines.

I can’t believe Letterman would actually show off a picture of her like that. I am relieved to see that she was able to handle it with grace and a bit of humor, but that was totally unprofessional of him to do that to a 19-year-old girl. Hopefully he learns some manners for Dan’s interview today.

I commend Emma for this interview, very clever and gracious…
David Letterman was pitiful though… he was tacky and detached, horrible…

Something really passive aggressive about this interview, Dave…Emma handled herself quite well.

“You either like Letterman, or you don’t.”

I agree. I don’t like him. I’ve always thought his jokes were just mean. Other guys (like Conan O’Brien) can be funny without making their guests cringe. Emma looked uncomfortable to me during a lot of the interview, but I thought she handled herself well.

Letterman’s monologue was full of stupid jokes, the Queen Latifa interview was okay, but Letterman went back into stupid mode for the interview with Emma. He should have known that she despises the upskirt paparazzi and not embarrassed her with the photo. At least he wasn’t as cruel to her as he was about Sarah Palin’s daughter and Alex Rodriguez. An incompetent interviewer, Letterman didn’t even follow up his inane questions about her grades and future plans by asking her what college she had chosen. I wish Emma would appear on The Daily Show or The Colbert Report!

I ordinarily like Dave, but that was an excruciating interview. Good for Emma for getting in a few zings, and I hope they never make her go on his show again. Looking forward to seeing Dan on the show tonight.
