Leave it to Dave

Fawcett was the target of much public criticism and drug use rumors after she appeared out of sorts on "The Late Show with David Letterman" in June 1997. Letterman referred to the comment in early 2009 when a similarly frazzled Joaquin Phoenix appeared as a guest, saying "Joaquin, I'm sorry you couldn't be here tonight. We owe an apology to Farrah Fawcett."
