Then on Wednesday, Kelly got shut down by Fonda when she asked about the 79-year-old actresses’ plastic surgery past.
“We really want to talk about that right now?” Fonda awkwardly asked, before pivoting instead to promotional comments about her latest film, Our Souls at Night.
Despite the backlash Kelly’s received, Guthrie was in her corner Thursday.
“I think it’s great,” she gushed of Kelly’s first week. “I think she’s got the eyes of the world upon her and I think everybody can relate to how nerve-wracking that is. But I think she’s awesome, I think the show looks fantastic. I mean, it looks beautiful. And we’re thrilled to have her. She’s doing a lot — she has a lot of different things she can do and I think she’s awesome.”
