“Zoolander 2” star Penelope Cruz took offence after her “ugly feet” are brought up during an interview.
Presenter Savannah Guthrie was not aware it was a touchy subject when she interviewed the actress during an episode of “Today”, reported Huffington Post.
The chat all started off quite routinely, with Savannah asking Cruz, 41, about her role in the new “Zoolander 2”.
But things quickly veered way off course when Savannah decided to quiz Cruz about her hooves.
The host started by reeling off a load of stories she’d heard about Cruz, including that she likes cutting hair.
“I don’t even know how I feel about this,” she began.
“I think you said it, that you, despite what you look like... You’ve said you have ugly feet.”
The actress wasn’t impressed and the shocked expression on her face pretty much said it all.
She responded: “No, no, no, no! I haven’t said that. I’m OK, I’m OK with my feet. I haven’t said that.”
In an effort to smooth things over, Penelope confessed that the only time she’d spoken about her feet was while referencing her dancing days.
