Stephen Colbert Interviews Barbara Walters Using Soft Focus Lens… On Himself

On last night's Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert interviewed one of the most famous interviewers around — Barbara Walters. She was there to plug her annual 10 Most Fascinating People special, which airs tonight, and Stephen told her that her work has been an inspiration and an influence. Then he had the cameraman flip into Barbara's trademark soft focus and diffused lighting, which was only on Stephen, while Babs had to sit in harsh lighting with very sharpened details. Clip above.
