Larry David Discusses His Divorce

Larry David arrives at the Vanity Fair Oscar party February 27, 2011

I realize that almost all late-night talk television is meticulously scripted. But last night, when smarmy Tonight Show host Jay Leno asked Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Larry David about his 2007 divorce, Larry’s side of the conversation sure had the uncomfortable ring of authenticity.

Larry David on his ex-wife:

Well, she thought that it would be nice to have sex with someone she liked. She wanted to try that. Y’know? She figured she’d give that…. And I said, it’s not a good idea. Because you never wanna have sex with people you like. That doesn’t work. No. You can’t have good sex with people you like. Doing those things? And then you’re supposed to talk to them?
