Hilary Swank showed a little leg as she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City for a guest appearance on "The Late show with David Letterman" Wednesday afternoon to promote her new film, "Conviction."

The star has come under fire over the film recently, as the family of a real-life murder victim has called for a meeting with the actress, so she can explain why the family was never consulted about the movie.

Members of Katharina Brow's family are upset about the film, which chronicles Kenneth Waters' battle for justice after he was convicted of her murder and placed on Death R...

Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba posed for photographers outside the Ed Sullivan Theater prior to appearing on the "Late Show With David Letterman" on Monday. She looked cute as a button in a frilly blue doll-like dress and velvet platform heels.

When recently asked what her daughter would think of her kicking butt in her new film "Machete," she told E! Online, "She won't know until she's 18. Or I don't want to know what she thinks until she's 18."

She added that her toddler Honor came to the set of "Machete" but wasn't allowed to watch any explosions or gun scenes.

Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore rocked black satin pants and a bronze sequined blouse at the "Late Show With David Letterman" on Tuesday.

The actress has been busy promoting her new film "Going The Distance" and making the round with various news outlets. But one pesky reporter rubbed her the wrong way - so much so that she wanted to "rip the face off" of the journalist.

Barrymore branded the female journalist a "b**ch" and admitted she wanted to "punch" the woman when she repeatedly inquired about the actress' teenage drug addiction.

Christina Applegate
Reason #25 why we hate Christina Applegate - she looks stunning while pregnant. Just kidding! The actress appeared on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Wednesday wearing a black dress with tiny red polka dots. We'd love to have her stylist!

Christina is expecting a baby with her fiance, Dutch musician Martyn Lenoble, almost two years after beating cancer. Applegate, 38, dated 41-year-old Lenoble, a bass player and founding member of Porno for Pyros, for two years before becoming engaged on Valentine's Day.

The star admits she's suffering unexpected mood swings due to her pregnancy: ...

Katy Perry
Neatly placed were ice cream cones, wrapped small candies, lollipops, peppermint, a sundae and cotton candy. Next to those mouthwatering goodies stood band members dressed in all-white “Ice Cream Man” uniforms paired with bow ties.

The background singers wore skin tight white mini dresses with colorful swirls and topped off their looks with candy pink afros. No, this wasn’t a dream; it was the mouthwatering set of Katy Perry’s “Live on Letterman” mini-concert. Of course, those treats were props but that didn’t keep the audience from licking their lips at it.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt regaled David Letterman with quirky family stories on Wednesday night's "Late Show."

"My older brother never did the acting thing. He spins fire for a living," Gordon-Levitt said. "It's fire on a ball and chain, and he spins them around in cool patterns."

"If you feel a -- certain way," he added knowingly, "it looks cool. To your eyes." Letterman and the audience responded with laughs.

Kristen Stewart
Kristin Stewart cut her hair and dyed it red and showed it off outside the Ed Sullivan Theater Monday before taping her appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman."

Perhaps K-Stew was trying to take a little weight off her feet as she recently complained that all the promotion time going into her latest film, "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," has taken its toll on her feet.

"I feel like my feet are really p**sed off at me, just because of the shoes. That's been the biggest problem," she said.

Salma Hayek
Salma Hayek nearly busted out of her black leather vest after leaving her hotel to head to the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" show in New York City yesterday.

The Mexican actress recently talked about her favorite snacks, which are a little creepy.

She explained, "We eat bugs, Mexicans. Look, I'm salivating. They're delicious. These little ants fried are amazing - with a little guacamole. And the worms... there are many different recipes for those. The little grasshoppers have a smoky flavor to them. It's the way they cook them, and it's really good."

Salma also stopped by the "Late Show...

Miley Cyrus toned down her recent provocative look while arriving for the "Late Show With David Letterman" on Thursday. The actress/pop star opted for long, loose leather pants and a beige blouse with a black sweater. She finished off the look with a black belt cinched high on her waist and a collection of necklaces and bracelets.

Miley has taken aim at Perez Hilton and branded him "an idiot" after a provocative photograph of the teenage star was posted on the blogger's website. The picture appeared to show the 17 year old exiting a car without wearing any underwear.

Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera wore sparkly tights, a leather jacket and red pumps to the "Late Show With David Letterman" on a rainy day in New York City Wednesday. Her short 'do and skimpy outfit kind of loosely remind us of Catwoman. Not the crappy Halle Berry "Catwoman" though.

The pop star has been popping up all over recently to promote her new album "Bionic."

Christina unexpectedly canceled her tour recently, and now we now why (at least, according to her). She wanted more time to thoroughly rehearse before heading out on the road, and she admits her recent acting work on "Burlesque" contribut...

5/2/2010 9:00am EDT
David Letterman is slowly rebuilding his relationship with his wife, six months after admitting to affairs with female members of his staff.

The Late Show host admitted to his infidelity on his late-night chat show last year after he was subjected to an extortion plot by a TV producer and disgruntled ex-boyfriend of one of his mistresses.

The confession came just seven months after he married his longtime partner Regina Lasko. Letterman admits his revelation rocked his relationship with Lasko, but they are trying to slowly repair their marriage.

Demi Moore
Demi Moore was passionate in purple when she arrived at "The Late Show With David Letterman" in New York City yesterday.

The actress is currently promoting her new film "The Joneses." In the film, a picture-perfect family moves into a typical American town, impressing the locals and integrating themselves into every aspect of the community until a sudden tragedy forces them to reassess their priorities.

Barack Obama David Letterman
While Presidents become late night circuit mainstays after their term, it's rare to see one appear for a sit down interview while in office. But that's exactly what Barack Obama did on the Late Show with David Letterman. Video after the break.

On Sunday, Obama toured the news shows on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and Univision to define his health care plan for the American people - so a chance to have a laugh and relax with Letterman probably came as a welcome reprieve.

The President arrived to a standing applause and a rendition of "Hail to the Chief." He was also given a heart-shaped potato ...

Top Celebrity Freak Outs - Can They Bounce Back?

7/2/2009 2:52pm EDT
Mel Gibson
Celebrity is something of a double edged sword. On one hand you could make millions and be adored by fans all over the world, but it also means the loss of privacy and the constant nitpicking of the mainstream critics. One slip up is all it takes for your face and words to be scattered over magazines and blogs, but sometimes the controversies are worth being taken to task for.

Here's a look at some of the celebrities who lost their mind or temper at the wrong time, and whether or not they have managed to bounce back from the incidents. What do you think of these moments in celeb history...

The 7-inch scar on Padma's arm is from a car accident she got when she was 14. She told Vogue magazine in 2001, "When I first got the scar, I was self-conscious about it.

Writer's Viewpoint: A Visit To 'Inside The Actor's Studio' With Josh Brolin

12/2/2008 1:53pm EST
Josh Brolin
There is always a peculiar aura in the air when James Lipton shows up on my television screen; I am quite transfixed with pure unadulterated fascination. Having said that, it should come to no one's surprise that I did not think twice when given the chance to attend a taping of "Inside the Actor's Studio" and be in the presence of Mr. Lipton once again (I had once seen him walk by me at a New York Mets game. Although I do hold out hope, I doubt he remembers me.)

Recorded on a blistering cold (well, not quite but it sounds good for effect) evening at Pace University, the guest of honor ...
