Larry David Says $500 Million Net Worth Estimate Is 'So Preposterous' But Also 'None of Your F*cking Business'

"How about you shut up? Is that alright?" the 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' creator and star hilariously told Chris Wallace.

Larry David was not entertaining questions about his net worth on the latest episode of Who's Talking to Chris Wallace?

The Curb Your Enthusiasm creator and star sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Wallace as his legendary HBO series approaches its final-ever episodes. But when the subject of his net worth came up, alongside a truly outlandish figure, David appeared incensed by the topic.

"My father always said people are fascinated by how much rich people are worth. I remember him famously asking Johnny Carson once, what's his worth?" asked Wallace in the clip below.

David interrupted, "That’s a terrible, terrible question to ask. Who’s your father think he was, by the way?" Wallace attempted to continue with the question, but David refused to back down. "I hope that Johnny Carson said to him, 'Mike. None of your business. That's none of your business,'" Larry said.

Wallace, 76, said he looked up fellow 76-year-old David's net worth on the internet, and read that the Seinfeld co-creator's net worth was around half a billion dollars. David appeared just as surprised by the $500 million figure and had to stop himself from doing a spit take.

"By the way, I'm out of water. Okay. I'm out," he said, to which Wallace suggested he was avoiding the question. "I'm gonna say what should have been said to your father, okay: None of your fucking business," David said with a laugh. "How about that? And that's ridiculous. ... That number is so preposterous, okay? Ridiculous."

Wallace asked, "How about $100 million dollars?" David without missing a beat, replied, "Okay, how about you shut up? Okay. How about you shut up? Is that alright?" Wallace laughed off the moment and said nobody has ever said that to him in an interview before.

Elsewhere in the interview, David spoke about Donald Trump and the 2020 election. "You can't go a day without thinking about what he's done to this country because he's such a little baby that he's thrown 250 years of democracy out the window by not accepting the results of an election," he said of Trump. "He's such a sociopath. He's so insane. He just couldn't admit to losing. And we know he lost. He knows he lost."

Complex's 360 with Speedy, of course, has a recurring segment where Speedy Morman asks his guests their net worth—including Will Smith this week—to reliably hilarious results. Maybe he can succeed where Wallace failed? Watch a 360 compilation below.
