The two have always had a charming rapport, so the actress felt comfortable griping about her ill-timed intro. PopEater points out that right after Roberts’ name was called in the beginning of the episode, announcer Alan Kalter followed it up with some segment about varicose veins.
“Can I just log a tiny complaint?” Roberts asks. “I’m in the dressing
room watching, and in the intro [Kalter says], ‘And Tonight — Julia
Roberts!’ And then they say, ‘A problem with varicose veins?'”
Roberts seemed to brush it off, but then brought it up again when Letterman asks her about a possible sequel to “Pretty Woman.” (Sidenote: really?)
“Not with these varicose veins,” she answers. Hopefully not with the killer legs she has, either.
