Conan O'Brien Covers 'Rolling Stone'

Conan O’Brien hangs from a rope ladder on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s November 11, 2010 issue!

Here’s what the 47-year-old Conan host had to share:

On his finale show: “I felt like I’d just been in a car accident. Like a crazy mix of elation, anger, sorrow. Confusion was a big one.”

On dealing with the loss of his TV show: “My wife says those first couple of months, the thing I said most often was, ‘Wait a minute, what just happened?’”

Conan’s wife, Liza Powel, on what he did after the show ended: “He was in the house all the time. I said, ‘This can’t last – it’ll drive us crazy!’ Literally every 10 minutes, he’d poke his head in the room and say, ‘I don’t wanna bother you, but do you know where the Band-Aids are?’ ‘I don’t wanna bother you, but do you know how to use the phone?’ He was so sweet about it, and I felt like such a jerk. But seriously, I almost rented an office for him.”

    I like Conan

  • hannah

    Oh yes, being dumped from a TV show and walking away with millions and millions of dollars plus another TV show on another network is soooo sad (eyeroll) Cry me a river.

  • Dan

    @hannah: Millions to him is the same as thousands to you, once you get used to a certain lifestyle, a drastic change such as a loss of a job is still as big of a hit.

  • hannah

    @Dan: Unlike most people who lose their jobs (without any sort of compensation) Conan doesn’t ever have to worry about feeding his family or paying the rent/mortgage. All he’s done since he was canned by NBC was bitch and complain about not having a job, having to be home, blah blah blah. He walked away the winner: millions of dollars because of a contract breach and a show on TBS that will probably have high ratings because people like him and he has a lot of fans. So no, it’s not as big a hit as a regular person losing their job.

    Team coco!!!

    thumbs don’t work as ususal, really why bother

  • Seriously

    @Hannah, it was never about the money, not for Conan – and losing a dream job never is. Nobody gets happiness through money.
    Secondly, he may be rich, but there were alot of people depending on him for THEIR jobs. I don’t have the money Conan does, actually I bet I’ve been way worse off in my life than you have, but I can still relate to him and I can still feel proud of him. So stop being such a douche and get over yourself.
