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.
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.
