Julia Roberts Talks Varicose Veins, Thanks to 'Late Show' Intro (VIDEO)

Julia Roberts Talks Varicose Veins on 'Late Show'Julia Roberts told David Letterman that what keeps her looking amazingly young and beautiful are her three kids and "the love of a good man."

But Alan Kalter, the announcer on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), made it sound like the actress suffers from varicose veins.

"Can I just log a tiny complaint?" asked Robert. "I'm in the dressing room watching, and in the intro [Kalter says], 'And Tonight -- Julia Roberts!' ... and then they say, 'A problem with varicose veins?'"

Kalter had followed up the question with a punchline, but Roberts wasn't ecstatic over the awkward introduction. Letterman shifted the blame and had a theory on why the producers did that. Roberts took it in stride and had a quick-witted comeback.

Julia Roberts, one of the biggest whores in Hollywood history, give me a bread with that "america's sweetheart" bs.

Blaming the producers? That's a little odd considering Dave owns the whole show, he's not just one of them, but their BOSS as well.

Julia - love her! Even love Dave, in spite of the fact he's a flipping Liberal!

Hey, Julia IS older now, and by the way, varicose veins are not the domain of the "old." Anyone, especially women who have borne children, can have varicose veins.

Whether Dave is old or not he is still drawing large audiences and his show is a great succes otherwise CBS would not keep him.
As far as the ssituation above I saw the secgment where Dave asked her if she could do a "Pretty Woman"
movie again. Her answer was "Not with my Varicose veins".
He said nothing at that time. What complaint she could have I don't know.

For the life of me, I can't understand what is so wonderful about this vulgar Roberts skank with the collagen-stuffed lips. She must get her roles on the casting couch.

Letterman is a perverted scum that uses his position to get young interns into his bed. He is senile, ugly and Julia should have just refused to come on his show stating that she wanted no association with his show, name, or person. When will they realize this guy no longer draws an audience and cancel his contract so he can move over to the home?

Dave is waaaay beyond his time.His gap-toothed smile and his pencil throwing days are behind the times plus, he is desperate ( thats number one on the top ten negatives to keep letterman on the show) to make headlines even if it belittles others. He is just plain ZERO. Move on Dave, let someone younger have the spot before the rating hit the cellar.

I agree with Julia! I thought the exact same thing when I saw the intro.
