Maya Rudolph “did not have a good time” when she appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” in 2009. 

“He said my name wrong, and I just sat there, like, I grew up my whole life in love with you. And now my heart is broken. And I’m sitting here embarrassed and humiliated,” the “Bridesmaid” star, 50, told WSJ. magazine in an interview published Friday. 

“I didn’t know how to handle it,” she continued. “I didn’t know how to come up with something funny to say. My public persona muscle wasn’t strong yet.”

A rep for Letterman didn’t immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment. 

Rudolph — who rose to fame after joining “Saturday Night Live” in 1999 — noted that she struggled with interviews and red-carpet appearances during the early days of her career.
