As a follow-up question, did Matt stay for the Barbara Walters segment (and mention the Hugh Jackman lapdance)?

The second chair was empty when they came back from commercial to introduce Walters. I wondered if he would stick around to chide her about it, but I am guessing he had to head off to the premiere.

No, Matt left after his segment, but that's standard for all the guests on the Letterman show. You might be thinking of the Tonight Show, where guests often stick around and sit on the couch during the other guests' segments. Anyway, I'm afraid I only heard a little of Barbara Walters...she was talking about her "10 Most Fascinating People" show, so no, I don't think she mentioned the Hugh Jackman lap dance thing!

Lastly, just to fill you in since you apparently missed the whole show, Dave was extremely laudatory towards Matt at the beginning when he announced the guests on that night's show -- calling him a great actor, a humanitarian, a great all-around guy, etc., etc.... Laying it on thick(!), and obviously in an amusing way, but you can tell he really likes and respects Matt.

Thanks for the reports everyone - Letterman's not shown anymore in Australia but I've just seen the clips via youtube.

They really set up the McConaughey segment, but people seem to love it.

Matt's never been as open about his wife and family before, but Dave was asking pretty loaded questions. Good stuff.

I want to thank everyone as well, especially "Just Jared". I couldn't get the show here, either and am deeply grateful for the recaps and clips on "YouTube". It was all that and more!
