Cher is a legendary singer, actress and long-time advocate for gay rights. She had one child with former husband Sonny Bono -- daughter Chastity Sun Bono, who was named after Cher's first dramatic film role in the 1969 flop 'Chastity,' where she played a bisexual. Daughter Chastity came out as a lesbian many years ago, and following a sex-change operation, she changed her name to Chaz Salvatore Bono. Cher fully supports Chaz, who was legally declared a man this past May. But on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), she and David Letterman puzzled through how to refer to her child.

Actor Russell Crowe is a tough guy. He fights, he drinks -- and he smokes cigarettes. On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Crowe said that he started smoking at age ten. Whoa. The 46-year-old estimates he's smoked 18,000 cigarettes a year ever since then. 18,000 times 36 years is -- well ... we won't do the math for you, but it's a lot. Now, Russell's trying to quit. He told David Letterman he kicked the habit five months ago, for the sake of his son. Dave was intrigued. "How did you stop?" he said, as the audience began to applaud. The actor held up his finger in warning. "You've clapped way too early," he told the crowd. Uh-oh. To Read More Click Here.
On the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), David Letterman and guest Harrison Ford started with a debate about flying high. Then they ended up in a debate over their relative heights. Ford began telling the host about a recent blimp ride that he had taken with his family. The actor is a well-known aviator; he flies airplanes and helicopters. (He once rescued a stranded hiker from the air, and also crash-landed a helicopter.) But when Dave expressed interest in Harrison's blimp flight, the actor growled this in response: "[Blimps are] really boring." Okay, we can see how floating in a huge balloon might be less fun than messing around in a helicopter. To Read More Click Here.
Tina Fey hasn't been paying attention to politics lately. In fact, David Letterman had to tell her about the 2010 election, and what the Republicans have been up to: "Last night, they sent America 'a message,'" he said with a rueful grin. Ms. Fey is so out of the political "loop" that she can't recall how to do her famous "Sarah Palin" impression. But she gave it a shot on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). At Dave's request, she did her version of Sarah Palin -- after pointing out that Palin is going to be hard to live with, following the recent Republican success. To Read More Click Here.
Robert Downey Jr. is a former Hollywood "bad boy." The actor was known for his hard-partying ways, but now, Downey is clean and sober -- and he stays out of trouble. But there's always someone ready to fill the "bad boy" vacuum. Recently, that person seems to be Charlie Sheen. This Friday, the cops came to Sheen's hotel room, after the actor allegedly went on a drunken coke-fueled rampage. Sheen also allegedly had a naked hooker locked in his room's closet. This is a big scandal for the 'Two and Half Men' star. So on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), David Letterman turned to his expert on drugs, booze and scandals -- Mr. Downey himself.

Will Ferrell is a man of many talents. But singing is not one of those talents. Still, on the 'Late Show' (11:35PM ET on CBS), Mr. Ferrell does his best. He belts out an incredible ballad -- and he does it all for a friend. Who is Will doing his performance for? Why, singer Celine Dion, of course! As you may have heard, Celine recently gave birth to twins. Unfortunately, this meant she could no longer sing at her live Las Vegas show. Luckily, Ferrell is here to pick up the slack. Will tells David Letterman that he and Celine have been best friends for years. They met in Quebec, while sitting on a bus, while Will was in Canada during his college semester abroad. ... It's a fascinating tale that never suffers from the fact that it's completely untrue. To Read More Click here.
Easy A star Emma Stone and her mother are getting tattoos designed by Paul McCartney to celebrate her mom's breast cancer going into remission. "My mom's favorite song is 'Blackbird,' and it's my favorite song as well," Stone said on The Late Show last week.

David Letterman isn't a fan -- he doesn't understand the whole "sexting" thing. Luckily, Sean "Diddy" Combs appeared on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) and helped Dave out. Combs and Letterman discussed the recent Brett Favre scandal, in which Favre was accused of sending photos of his private parts to Jenn Sterger, a sports reporter and model. Dave was confused, so Sean smoothly explained how to go about "sexting" someone. "I'm the perfect spokesman," he said. "I'm a sex-texter myself." To Read More Click Here .

Julie Chen strolled onto the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) stage with a video camera, and filmed herself hugging host David Letterman. She explained that for the new mom's roundtable show 'The Talk,' "We're given homework assignments where we have to Flip Video things that happen in our life outside of the studio." He didn't seem too thrilled about being included in the requirement, but his job is in the hands of Chen's husband -- CBS President Leslie Moonves. Speaking of, Moonves' birthday was that very day. When Letterman asked Chen how old he was, she smirked: "You and I both want to keep our jobs. You know better, Dave." He said, "But let's just say when you bring out the cake with the candles, is the fire department standing by?" Source & Preview
