Appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Gasteyer had the letter ready, and although she was probably about seven years too late, she took to reading a letter full of “I’m sorry’s” to the woman who inspired one of her most famous impersonations. She has full respect for (and fear of) Stewart, but she may have made life even harder for her over the years due to impersonating her.
Stewart was also on the show, so she was able to respond almost instantly while taking some jabs at Gasteyer’s expense. But for anyone looking for a fight will be disappointed; Stewart loves the impression.
“Actually I loved your impersonations of me, they were very very accurate,” Stewart said. “But I still say ‘herb,’ I still say ‘oregano,’ and I do say ‘chutzpah.’”
