Actor Liev Schreiber spent most of his appearance on Friday’s The Late Show with David Letterman discussing a gossip item that ran in what he called The New Delhi Times (there isn’t a paper by this name). According to Schreiber, the article accused him of spitting on co-star Scarlett Johansson during a recent performance of their Broadway show A View From the Bridge.
I initially assumed that Schreiber was referring to the Hindustan Times, a paper that often runs ridiculous stories about Western celebrities. (Some recent examples include the following: LiLo denies rumours of link up with Gerard Butler, I look like a ‘blob’: Robert Pattinson and Sandra versus a porn star.)
However, after poking around a bit further, I believe I found the article Schreiber was talking about. It’s from NewKerala.com and it begins:
LIEV SCHREIBER and SCARLETT JOHANSSON disgusted theatregoers during a recent performance of their Broadway show A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE after the actor accidentally spat mucus in his co-star’s face.
