One of the things about Mandy Moore that I love as a mom is that I can show my kids a celebrity who always dresses so appropriately and has a healthy appreciation for her body. She looked fantastic in her teal dress! A big part of her wholesomeness is her fresh-faced look, and she was radiant durign her visit on June 25, 2007.
Chatting it up in our studio with actor Kevin Costner. He was cracking me up before the interview, telling me how everyone thinks he's a big time golf fanatic, when, in reality, he's just not very good. He says he got tired of correcting everybody, so he just lets them think what they want!
Big grins after the Costner interview about his new movie "Mr. Brooks." Sometimes you just genuinely have a good time in interviews and the conversation flows easily. This was one of those times.
Taking off the audio equipment after chatting with Kevin Costner. Joe, our audio guy, left, is constantly trying to figure out how to work our microphone and earpiece equipment around my fashion choices in the morning.
Chatting it up with actor Bruce Willis before going on camera. I always like visiting with guests prior to the cameras rolling. I think it makes everyone feel more comfortable.
Here I am with Ben Stiller after a really funny interview.
I love former "American Idol" contestant Chris Daughtry's debut album. It reminds me a lot of the rock group "Live." Chris told me during our interview that the band was one of his influences. I'm so much taller than him that I actually had to take my boots off to take this picture!
I'm a huge "American Idol" fan and my kids absolute favorite during the 2006 season was Katherine McPhee. One of the things I like about her is that she is not afraid to share her battle with bulemia. I think its important that celebrities be honest about things like that.
Sienna Miller is one of the cutest girls on the planet. She looks adorable, as usual! I'm just trying to keep up.
People have told me thorough the years that Hilary Swank and I look alike. Think so? I don't know, but I sure do enjoy interviewing her.
My stage manager Tony is always getting after me for moving around in my chair. Looking at this picture of my interview with actress Uma Thurman, I guess you can see what he is talking about.
Mugging for the camera with Tony Bennett. I've got a huge smile on my face because we had just finished a great interview and I found him to be such a gracious person.
Just moments after an interview with Katie Holmes, who told me how much in love she was with Tom Cruise. This was before they got married, and right after Cruise's jumping escapades on Oprah's couch.
Carlos Santana is one of my all time favorites. We were clowning around after a concert in The Early Show studios.
With the very charming Hugh Grant, who I always look forward to interviewing! He's completely low maintenance, and arrived without a stylist, deciding to throw on this sweater himself for the interview, after consulting with me and some of the crew. It matched his gorgeous eyes so I gave it the thumbs up!
