Chilean Miner, Edison Pena, Sings For David Letterman: Late Last Night

Nov 05, 2010 | 7:49am EDT

Chilean miner Edison Pena performed some Elvis for David Letterman. A translator was there to keep the conversation going, since Letterman doesn’t speak Spanish and Pena doesn’t speak English, and it was pretty awesome to watch their exchange about how he went to the bathroom way down in the mine.

Up until this very point, I thought the person on the cover of the November issue of Vogue was Eva Mendez. But last night, Jay Leno whipped out a copy of it and applauded Anne Hathaway for it. I suppose it’s my fault. I should have realized it was her by the bi-line, which said “Anne Hathaway: I’m too trusting.” She told Leno about what it was like to go to Paris to shoot the cover, and how annoying it was to be in Paris while on a diet. Perhaps she'd rather be a miner?

Dr. Phil was on Jimmy Fallon last night and told Fallon how one time, Oprah shaved off his mustache and it was so terrible. Clearly he bought himself a leather jacket to help him recuperate.

Jon Stewart and his crew talked about Obama’s reaction to the election results, after his party drew the shortest straw and had were forced to go back to using the suspicious plant to complete their hygienic routines.

And David Sedaris sat down for a quick chat with Stewart about his new book, “Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk.” It’s a compilation of fables that are told with animals, which sounds great, but I’d much rather read about what would happen if you put David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs in a freight elevator that’s stuck between floors 5 and 6.

And Stephen Colbert did his segment, “Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger” about how the TSA now is taking pictures of our naked bodies using machines that scan through our clothes to check us for weapons, and how Bert of Sesame Street seems to be finally coming to grips with his sexuality.
