Matt Damon and David Letterman Talk With Hair-Ties on Their Tongues (VIDEO)

Matt Damon and David Letterman Talk With Hair-Ties on Their TonguesIn the new Western 'True Grit,' Matt Damon's character gets injured while being dragged behind a horse, and nearly bites off his tongue. So, Matt needed to find a way to imitate the sound of a speech impediment. "So I thought, well, what if I wrapped -- like -- a pony tail around my tongue," he said.

Which is a bit of a mental leap, but okay. And for the record, by "pony tail," he's referring to a hair-tie, or a "scrunchie" -- not anything to do with actual horses. On the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Damon invited David Letterman to join him in the unique practice of talking with a hair-tie on your tongue. "I brought one for you," he said. "Did you bring two? Or just the one?" the host asked.

"Just the one ... it's got lint on it," Matt replied, reaching into his pocket. (That's not very sanitary, Matt!)

Luckily, after some quick scrambling by Dave's "people," a second hair-tie was located. (Which would be nice, by the way, to have "people" to bring you things like that.) The pair then tried the hair-ties on ... "ALRIGHTHT," Dave said. "WELLTH, SO FAR, IT'SH NOT THAT BAD."

"IT'STH EFFECTIVE," Letterman added, "BUT I THOUGHTTH IT WOULD BE PAINFUL."

The problem with this country is that we make million heirs out of people who can do nothing except acting.

Letterman is stupid. so many make him look like a fool and he sits there dumb founded..like paul mccartny said when letterman asked him why it took 30 years to get him on the show..paul said 'cause i don't like you' amen paul. i have found that most that like letterman are liberal gay loving types.. makes sense since he is so there

I think it was Letterman's underhanded way of imitating Jay Leno. He is so jealous of him.

Matt Damon should stick to his acting and leave the politics to CNN/MSNBC AND FOX. I'll never again watch one of his flims.

I love all of his films! And why would you say leave the politics to CNN/MSNBC AND FOX? They all suck. If more people cared about what our politicians in Washington were up to, maybe they wouldn't be getting away with so much crap, and I don't care if it's actors, store clerks, secretaries, or whatever, people should be more informed, more vocal, and more involved. That's part of what the tea party is about. We are all a part of "we the people" so why would you want them silenced? Just because he is able to have a public platform on which to express his views doesn't mean you can't or he shouldn't. People like Abby Hoffman were able to be heard without being famous beforehand. Why do you want to suppress his free speech? Because it doesn't agree with your politics? So what. Maybe all you people that put down Dave and Matt are just jealous.

what's really funny about this is that Sarah Palin is whining about feminism and Letterman with a hair tie around his tongue gets top billing... LOL!
