Twilight star Kristen Stewart’s 15 minutes of fame might have already passed (until the next movie in the series, at least), but, oh, what a memorable 15 minutes they were. Less than a week before she would be photographed smoking drugs on her Los Angeles doorstep, Stewart dropped by Letterman’s show for one last plug of her vegetarian-vampire flick. The result is equal parts hilarity and horror. Take this exchange, for example:
Stewart: We have this big European press tour to do. I’m not sure if we’re going to end up in London or Berlin, but wherever we end up, I’m going to drive to Russia. I’m very, very excited about that.
Letterman [deadpan:] Let’s hope for Berlin.
[Audience laughs, understands geography.]
Stewart [oblivious to joke:] I’m actually hoping for Russia. Very much so, yeah.
Eek, is more like it.
