45. Many years ago - like 10 years ago or so - Leno was interviewing an actor
on his show. I don't remember who the actor was. Anyway, this actor had recently moved from NY to California to make a tv series and Leno asked him about the show and living in California. The actor said that he liked California very much except he really missed NY pizza, but it was just as well because he had to lose weight for his role and it was quite a struggle for him to do so.

The next thing I knew Leno had someone bring out a pizza they had flown in from NY and wave it under the actor's nose to generally taunted him with it. You could see the turmoil on the actor's face - here was his favorite food being waved about in front of him while Leno kept saying oh come on, have a slice. The actor declined the pizza several times and it became sort of uncomfortable.

There was an air of mockery in the segment and it was a real turn-off. I thought it was cruel to do that to a guy who confessed to having a struggle with his weight. I never liked Leno after that.
