Jimmy Fallon of the Tonight Show was none too pleased when Barbara Walters said he wasn’t the most fascinating interviewee ever. She didn’t mean this to imply that he was actually boring; she meant just that. He just wasn’t the most fascinating subject.
But then she went on and told us about her most boring interview. It was with legendary heart throb Warren Beatty. Yes, Warren Beatty. The one rumored to be the subject of Carly Simon’s song “You’re so Vain” (although Simon has denied it). Well Carley might or might not think he is vain, but Walters certainly think Beatty is boring.
She tells us what it is like interviewing Beatty. She asks him what the title of his new movie is…”Uhh.. I don’t know…Who Cares?” is her characterization of a response.
When Fallon presented a “touched up” photo of Fallon and Walters in a bathtub together and asked if she would like to be in a bubbly bath with Warren Beatty, Walters responded. “Not me and him (meaning Beatty, then pointed to Fallon) Maybe him and Beatty, but not me!”
