Actor Dustin Hoffman cozies up to pop supergroup One Direction when he crashes their interview during the band's first appearance on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN Friday, Dec. 7. Check out a clip of the interview below!
Letterman, who throughout the show references the "giant couch" that One Direction will be sitting on during their interview, introduces the band to come out on stage. As Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Niall Horan shake hands with Dave and sit down on the couch, Dustin Hoffman, also a guest on the show, comes out on stage. The Academy Award-winning actor makes his way to sit at the end of the sofa with the band and, after asking to sit on Letterman's lap (which the host rebuffs), he plants a big smooch on a laughing Niall Horan, to the amusement of his bandmates and the audience. After Hoffman leaves the stage, Letterman jokes, "Good heavens, what a slut!"
Earlier in the show, Hoffman, who, like Letterman, was an honoree at THE 35TH ANNUAL KENNEDY CENTER HONORS, is effusive in his praise of Letterman as an artist, calling him a satirist on the level of Will Rogers. Letterman, to show his thanks for Hoffman's kind words, plants a big kiss on the laughing actor.
One Direction's entire interview, as well as the band's performance on the show, and Hoffman's full interview can be seen on the LATE SHOW tonight (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
