Now David Letterman knows who his friends are – and there are plenty of them.
At Monday night’s New York City screening of the HBO documentary Good Hair, its star and co-director Chris Rock had nothing but the best to say about Letterman, blackmail scandal or no.
“He’s the greatest host in the world,” said Rock, 44, at the Cinema Society event sponsored by Target. “I would never make a disparaging comment about David Letterman.”
