A resurfaced 1998 clip by US talk show legend David Letterman, in which host Jennifer Anistons licks off his hair, is currently going viral on Twitter – and fans are reacting in disgust.
Letterman licked Aniston’s hair
The 73-year-old Letterman saw himself at the center of criticism this week after sharing old snippets from his “Late Show with David Letterman” on social media in which he conducted unpleasant interviews with female stars — including Paris Hilton, Janet Jackson and Lindsay Lohan.
One clip that attracted a lot of attention is an excerpt from a 1998 interview by Letterman with Jennifer Aniston. Aniston, then at the height of her career, promoted the film ” on Letterman’s show “Love in every relationship“.
During the interview, the “Friends” star says that she once met fans in the sauna of a gym. Later, Letterman, unsolicited, moves his chair close to the now 52-year-old. He puts a hand in Anistton’s neck and tells her: “Forgive me if this is rude. I just want to try one thing.”
Whereupon the presenter takes a strand of hair from his studio guest into his mouth and licks it off. Although Aniston protests loudly and tries to turn her head away.
“That was something I’ll never forget,” Aniston says, visibly disgusted, after the strange moment. And when Letterman later asks if she was “traumatized” by his attack, she replied, “It’s me.”
