It all depends on Larry King
An embarrassing photograph of Larry King's garbage has been pulled from an art exhibit because it shows a box of Depend adult diapers among the detritus.
The diapers in the 70-year-old CNN talkmeister's trash set tongues wagging Tuesday night at four-star eatery Le Bernardin, where French photographers Pascal Rostain and Bruno Mouron previewed their exhibit Star Trash for which they shot the rubbish collected from the curbs of King, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hanks, Cindy Crawford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Madonna, Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Melanie Griffith and other boldfaced names.
Rostain, who removed the King photo from his show yesterday, told PAGE SIX that the inclusion of the Depend box image was not an attempt to embarrass the bespectacled broadcaster. He said, "We didn't know that this product was for old people — we thought it was for babies.
"We were not trying to make a scandal. [At the party] some people were laughing. We said, 'Oh, [bleep]. And so now the picture will not be in the show."
