Last night, 60 Minutes' Charlie Rose interviewed Hollywood's most lovable neurotic odd duck, Larry David. The interview was candid, funny, illuminating and, at times, awkward and cringe-worthy — prime TV viewing. David talks about his life and the highly buzzed Broadway show he penned, Fish in the Dark, a dark comedy about family dysfunction that's opening this Thursday.
The 67-year-old star of Curb Your Enthusiasm and co-creator of Seinfeld — the spirit animal of both Jerry at his best and George at his worst — was unrestrained in his rants, and in some choice outtakes on the 60 Minutes website, you can read some humorous outtakes calling Rose out on some of his more pointed questions.
Larry David: I'm a jerk, that's who I am. I'm like -
Charlie Rose: You're not! That's an act!
Larry David: I'm like everybody else.
Charlie Rose: No, that's an act.
Larry David: No, it isn't.
Charlie Rose: It really isn't?
Larry David: No.
Charlie Rose: How are you a jerk?
Larry David: Oh, look. Let's stop talking about me. I, that's why I didn't want to do this interview in the first place. I had to be talked into 60 Minutes. You think I wanted to do this? I didn't want to do it! 'Cause I knew you'd be asking questions like this!
