David Letterman Makes Denzel Washington Feel Uncomfortable On 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Denzel Washington has been a movie star and sex symbol for decades, so he should be a pro at handling unwanted advances from admiring fans by now.

However, "Late Show" (Weeknights, 11:35 p.m. EST on CBS) host David Letterman managed to make him a little uncomfortable when he complimented his good looks.

As Denzel laughed nervously, Letterman said, "I'm a heterosexual ... and even I was caught up in the conversation about how good-looking you are."

As Letterman treated him to some old-fashioned charm, all Denzel could do was to laugh and shuffle uncomfortably in his seat. But when Letterman jokingly started stroking his hand, Denzel quipped, "Dave, you've been working too hard. You need a vacation!"

Now celebrating its 30th year on the air, "Late Show With David Letterman" airs Weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on CBS.

TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser.
