On March 31, 1994, Madonna was a guest on the Late Show With David Letterman. What should have been a seemingly innocuous interview has become a piece of talk-show history.

Madge's language and behavior – including 14 F-bombs and her refusal to leave the stage – caused waves of controversy. Her profanity made the show the most-censored network talk show episode in history, but it was also one of the highest-rated of Letterman's career.

And soon, she was joined under the comforter by the host himself, who then joked that he wanted the audience to leave immediately.

"God, can it be any colder? … It feels like all the windows are open or something," the Oscar winner, 23, said at the beginning of the interview. "Do you ever get so cold that you start sweating? Is that just a gross problem I have?"

"I've talked to a number of actors who have gained weight for roles and – just out of the sheer physical toll on one's knees and shoulders – no one wants to do it again," Hanks told the BBC while in London to promote his based-on-fact piracy drama Captain Phillips.

The affable two-time Oscar-winner, 57, revealed while appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman Monday night that he has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, although he called the condition "controllable."

"I went to the doctor, and he said, 'You know those high blood sugar numbers you've been dealing with since you were 36? Well, you've graduated! You've got Type 2 diabetes, young man,' " Hanks told Letterman.
