I adore Mayim Bialik–and not just because she writes amazing things for us here at Kveller. She’s a talented actress, a brilliant scientist, a caring mom, and a down-to-earth mensch all rolled up into one spectacular human being. That being said, when I found out she was going on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” I made it my No. 1 priority to talk our editor Molly Tolsky into letting me live-tweet the show (which she did, in case you missed it).
Let me tell you, it was awesome to watch. As Mayim said, she’s been waiting for over 20 years to be on Letterman, and you could feel her immense gratitude and excitement to be there. Also, while the “Big Bang Theory” is an amazing show, I deeply appreciated Letterman’s focus on her science career and acting career as whole.
And that boop on the nose 45 seconds into the clip below? Priceless.
Despite fielding some difficult questions, Mayim totally rocked it as expected. (Also her outfit was 100-percent on point, as always.)
