Megyn Kelly's Botches Jane Fonda Interview and Her Ratings Tank

Friday, 29 Sep, 2017

Fonda, 79, and costar Robert Redford, 80, appeared on "Megyn Kelly Today" on September 27 to talk about their new movie, "Our Souls At Night", Page Six reported.

Kelly began by talking to Redford about his Hollywood career highlights and his iconic role as Hubble in The Way We Were. Redford tells TODAY's Matt Lauer that working with Fonda was "easy" because they've made so many films together, such as "Barefoot in the Park", which he says was made in a more innocent time.

Kelly: "You've been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically".

United States actress Sarah Michelle Gellar hailed Fonda for keeping her composure writing: "So how come @megynkelly didn't ask @RobertRedford if he had any plastic surgery?".

"We really wanna talk about that?" "Seemed like the wrong time and place to ask that question", the two-time Oscar victor says, smiling, as Sangita tells her, "I love the way you handled it". Kelly had asked a fan if he had been inspired to be a lawyer and to be gay by the show and then said, "The gay thing is going to work out".

His last opportunity to play in the Premier League was at Bournemouth and he probably wouldn't have played as many games as he would have liked.

Kelly was interviewing World Cup victor Carli Lloyd to talk about "women in sports". Affectionately known as "Me Again", it seems Megyn's narcissistic personality has finally eclipsed her self-promotion as just "one of us".

"Well, thanks", she said. Take care of myself. "Of course, I haven't had [plastic surgery]", Redford said. CNN and USA Today both dubbed it "awkward", The Washington Post called it a "morning-show Bride of Frankenstein", and Time said she "fails to connect" with her audience.

Fonda opened up in 2012 about going under the knife and the specific instructions she had for her doctor.

Cameraman expletives aside, Kelly did dig some part of her own clumsy grave on this morning's show. But as The Washington Post's Erik Wemple wrote, "Whereas Kelly's job once called for her to bludgeon the appropriate people - generally liberals - at the right time, her new charge is to be relatable, likable, vivacious, etc".
