In preparation for Oprah Winfrey's first-ever Late Show visit, Letterman posed with a portrait of the two of them. At the 1995 Oscars, he'd made dud of an "Oprah, Uma, Uma, Oprah" joke, "introducing" the talk show hostess to Thurman, so Winfrey's 2005 appearance on his show was seen as a burying the hatchet of sorts (though she insisted there was never a feud).
