Savannah Guthrie Stands Up For Kelly After Awkward 'Today' Show Interview

Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly

Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly

The Oscar victor spun awkward daytime TV into internet gold on Wednesday when Kelly asked about her plastic surgery history during a segment with co-star Robert Redford about their new movie "Our Souls At Night". Asked, for example, if she would take a knee with National Football League players protesting police brutality and racial injustice, Kelly offered platitudes about the right for everyone to the First Amendment, saying "Go USA, that's my feeling in watching it".

The Barbarella actress appeared visibly stunned by the line of questioning and shot daggers at the presenter. "I've just been so delighted that the media response, which has really - no", she said, shaking her head before continuing, "but the viewer response has been awesome, and I am so grateful to have all of you giving us a chance". "You've admit you've had work done, which I think is to your credit", said Kelly. "I have and I've talked about it", Fonda said. "But let me tell you why I love this movie that we did, 'Our Souls at Night, ' rather than plastic surgery".

Fonda thanked her for the compliment, but said it was all down to good attitude, good posture, and taking care of herself. After poor ratings and even worse publicity for Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly, the limited series was scrapped two episodes before it was supposed to end, thanks in part to widespread criticism of Kelly's softball interviews of Vladimir Putin and Alex Jones. "You know, sometimes you ask questions in an interview - live TV, there's awkward moments all the time".

Redford laughed as Fonda pivoted.

Plenty of people were outraged by Kelly's remarks, including Will & Grace star Deborah Messing.

Kelly was interviewing World Cup victor Carli Lloyd to talk about "women in sports". However, the attempted piece of NBC synergy went wrong when Kelly made some clunky comments to a gay fan of the show.

"Honestly I didn't know it was MK until that morning", Messing wrote. There's not much time ahead and I don't want to go out without opening my heart, talking, bearing my soul.
