Maybe because he’s just an ol’ softie!

Wikipedia synopsis of The Ugly Truth
Here’s Stuart, so happy that The Ugly Truth is over that he’s doing a dance to the credits music:
The last minute of the podcast made me think of the movie “Theodore Rex”, which mad me sad…then I thought about “Night Court” and Stewart’s pure joy about possibly being on it, and I was happy again.
