As you know, Conan O'Brien talks to "60 Minutes" this Sunday. There have been leaks, notably some to this morning's edition of the Times, and a few last night.
Here are some fresh quotes.
Bottom line: Co sounds kinda happy, without regrets (or too many) or much bitterness, to speak of. Interesting to see this Sunday if this is an erroneous impression...
I don't regret anything. I don’t regret one decision I made in that week
and a half period,” says the late night television comedian. “I wish it
had ended differently. But, I'm fine. I do believe, and this might be my
Catholic upbringing or Irish magical thinking, but I think things happen
for a reason. I really do. And I think that this all happened for a
reason,” he tells Kroft.
Was He Screwed?
The biggest thing people come up and say to me in gas stations and
restaurants, I have so many people say this to me. “Hey partner, you got
screwed.” I don't-- and I always tell them, "No, I didn't. I didn't get
screwed. I'm-- I'm fine. It just-- it didn't work out." But I don't
want people thinking, you know, that I got screwed. Because it just
didn't work out.
Resolved His Issues?
No, I have not resolved all my issues. I am mostly very happy. I love
this tour, it's the most thrilling thing I've done in my career. And so
I'm in a really great place in a lot of ways. But I'd be lying if I said
I don't-- have my moments of everything, you know, anger, disappointment
-- frustration and just confusion.
