First of all, Julianna Margulies is 47 years old, people, and look at her! She has the Connie Britton/Carla Gugino gene, in which she seems to look better as she ages. And those gams, yo! They’re mesmerizing, which is why her interview with Letterman last night seemed particularly delightful, despite the sort of awkward back-and-forth at times. It may have been because she hadn’t been adequately prepped, as a last-minute fill-in after a cancellation (Margulies lives in New York, as The Good Wife is filmed in Brooklyn, which I had not realized).
Anyway, the banter on Clooney that opens the segment is pretty great, although after that it’s just a lot of awkward laughter, but you can get through that torment by keeping your eyes focused on Margulies’ legs.
