Jenna Bush Hager is sorry for flubbing the names of films “Fences” and “Hidden Figures.”
While conducting interviews on Sunday’s Golden Globes red carpet, Bush Hager sent the Internet into a tizzy when she said to Pharrell Williams, “So, you’re nominated for ‘Hidden Fences.’” (The singer-songwriter was actually nominated for “Hidden Figures”). Later in the evening, presenter Michael Keaton made the same title-combination mistake from the Globes stage.
On Monday morning’s episode of the “Today” show, a choked-up Bush Hager offered a sincere apology for her live-TV error, saying, “If I offended people, I am deeply sorry. It was a mistake because as y’all know I’m not perfect. What I didn’t want to do is make anybody feel lesser than what they are.”
She called both pictures, which she’s seen, “brilliant.”
