Megyn Kelly’s Today show gig has gotten off to a rocky start following two awkward interviews in her first three days.
There was a frosty interaction between Kelly and Jane Fonda on Megyn Kelly Today Wednesday as the host asked the Hollywood icon about plastic surgery.
“You admit you had work done. I think it's to your credit. You look amazing. Have you... why did you say... I read you felt you're not proud to admit you had work done. Why not?" Kelly said.
The 79-year-old actress did not look pleased, and fired back: “We really want to talk about that now?”
Fonda was promoting her new film Our Souls at Night with co-star Robert Redford, 81.
As Kelly tried to salvage the interview, Fonda shifted it to a discussion of the movie while taking a dig at the host's questioning.
“Let me tell you why I love this movie that we did, Our Souls at Night, rather than plastic surgery,” she said.
The interview comes on the heels of Will & Grace actress Debra Messing's admission that she regrets going on Kelly’s show because of an awkward moment with an audience member earlier this week.
On Monday — Kelly's first show — she asked the Will & Grace fan, “Is it true that you became a lawyer and you became gay because of Will?"
When a fan later asked Messing about the incident on Instagram she responded: “Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments."
Messing and the rest of the cast of were promoting the reboot of classic sitcom.
Kelly’s show is on NBC, the same network that airs Will & Grace.
