It’s day three of Megyn Kelly’s daytime talk show, Megyn Kelly Today and the former Fox News commentator has already hit a few bumps in the road. On Wednesday she welcomed actors Jane Fonda and Robert Redford, there to promote their new Netflix film, Our Souls at Night. All was well until Kelly attempted to change the topic to Jane Fonda’s plastic surgery, causing Fonda to switch the topic right back.
“You’ve been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically,” Kelly began. “You admit you’ve had work done, which I think is to your credit, but you look amazing.” She paused before stumbling her way to an actual question. “I read that you said you’re not proud to admit you’ve had work done, why not?”
Fonda took her own pregnant pause before answering, “We really want to talk about that now?”
Kelly recovered by saying that many people who look at Fonda comment on how “amazing” she looks. Fonda entertained Kelly briefly before not-so-subtly turning the subject back to the film.
“Well thanks. Good attitude, good posture, take care of myself,” she said. “But let me tell you why I love this movie that we did, Our Souls at Night, rather than plastic surgery.”
It’s not the first awkward moment Kelly’s faced during her new gig, in which she’s donning cozy blouses and de-emphasizing politics in hopes that viewers will forget the years she spent repeating the conservative party line on Fox News. While she had the cast of Will & Grace on for her debut episode on Monday, she surprised a longtime fan of the series, Russell Turner, with two tickets for an upcoming live taping of the show. Kelly asked Turner, “Is it true that you became a lawyer—and you became gay—because of Will?”
Turner laughed off the comment saying, “I look at Will Truman and I’m like, ‘He has it made!’ Lawyer, best apartment in New York City, and gay? Come on, trifecta.”
After telling Turner that he won the tickets, Kelly added, “I don’t know about the lawyer thing, but I think the Will & Grace thing and the gay thing is going to work out great.”
An Instagram user later commented on a photo Debra Messing had posted of a bowl of cucumbers (one must seize the moment at any available opportunity), and asked “Why did you guys do the Megyn Kelly show? That’s a fail!”
“Honestly I didn’t know it was MK until that morning,” Messing wrote back. “The itinerary just said Today Show appearance. Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments.”
Fonda hasn’t given any update since the interview Wednesday morning, but maybe keep an eye on her Instagram comments just in case.
