Only a few days into her new position as host to NBC’s TODAY show, Megyn Kelly had an embracing encounter with actress Jane Fonda.
Fonda and Reobert Redford appeared on Megyn Kelly Today show to discuss their new movie. Our Souls at Night.
And the interview got awkward as Kelly started to ask the actors about their ages.
“You’ve been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically,” Kelly told Fonda. “You admit you’ve had work done, which I think is to your credit. But you look amazing … I read that you said you’re not proud to admit you’ve had work done. Why not?”
Fonda was surprised by the question and need it few seconds before she answered.
“We really want to talk about that now?” she said.
Kelly responded, “Well one of the things people think about when they look at you is how amazing you look.”
“Well, thanks. Good attitude, good posture. I take care of myself,” Fonda said and turned to Redford to change the subject.
“But let me tell you why I love this movie that we did, Our Souls at Night, rather than plastic surgery,” Fonda said.
Redford laughed loud.
Fonda stated she was surprised by Kelly’s question, during an interview later that day with Sangita Patel, host of Entertainment Tonight Canada.
She said that seeing how the interview was short the main topic should have been about the movie and not about whether she had any plastic surgery done.
This isn’t the first time Kelly humiliated herself during interviews with celebrities.
On Monday, the cast and crew members of the show Will & Grace were on her show to talk about their new reboot of the original show.
So Kelly got one male fan on stage and asked him “Is it true you became a lawyer — and you became gay — because of Will?”
Debra Messin, who is playing the lead role of Grace, post on Instagram she had no idea Kelly was the host until Monday morning, saying she regretted doing the show with her.
“The itinerary just said Today Show appearance. Regret going on,” Messing said. “Dismayed by her comments.”
