- Today show stars Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb were arrested for commenting on Matthew McConaughey during a commercial break.
- Savannah and Hoda immediately apologized to the actor who appeared on the show to discuss his new audience Service announcement about the importance of wearing face masks during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
- Matthew assured the NBC morning show anchors that he found their comments "flattering".
Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb had a big "Oops!" "" Moment during a Today commercial cut this week.
The NBC co-stars unintentionally made things uncomfortable on Tuesday after raving about the actor Matthew McConaughey just before the air. The Oscar The winner appeared today in to talk about his new public announcement about the importance of wearing face masks.
But before Matthew started discussing his PSA, Hoda and Savannah apparently made some comments about the actor during a commercial break, not knowing that the Dallas Buyers Club star could hear them. As you can imagine, the return from the commercial break has made it (though Craig Melvin and Al Roker got a good kick of it).
"Savannah and I had a little chat during the commercial break and Matthew was listening, so we apologize," said Hoda, laughing. Savannah then added, "Yes, it was embarrassing. Matthew, I'm sorry you had to hear us talk about you like this, but it's all good."
Meanwhile, Matthew just smiled and assured the Today co-hosts that he didn't mind.
However, Craig added fuel to the fire and started joking that the exchange was "a bit awkward". Al kept stacking up and said that he wished people at home could "hear their embarrassment" because Savannah and Hoda "were so broken!"
Finally Savannah gave in, revealing what had actually happened.
Savannah said it all started when she asked Hoda if she could possibly be included in the segment during the commercial break. "I'll take you in to say hello to Matthew. And [Hoda] said:" Okay, but if there's something going on with both of you and it's great, you don't have to bring me in. "And me said, "Well, if something magical happens, I won't do it." And then she turned to me and said something else. "
" I said something about it, if you're making out virtually, I'm joking. " , Hoda admitted. "I was fun, I was fun, because who doesn't want that?"
Matt assured them that it was okay and said it was "a great way to start the day" and that their comments were "flattering."
Savannah then strangely tried to distract the guilt: "Do I'm sorry about Hoda, she's really embarrassing. "
