Talking is hard, you guys! ‘Today’ show anchor Willie Geist had a bit of a flub on June 24, when he accidentally called Amanda Seyfried ’tisty’ instead of ‘ditzy’ during an interview. But luckily, the actress was a good sport about the whole thing! Watch it here.
Willie Geist is lucky that Amanda Seyfried, 29, has a great sense of humor! The actress appeared on the Today show June 24 to promote her upcoming movie Ted 2, and things took an unexpected turn when the show’s co-host described her as “titsy” during the introduction. Wait, what?!
“We all know Amanda Seyfried rom her roles as the nice, if a bit tisty…” Willie began, before immediately catching himself and making the correction. “Ditzy, excuse me, teen from Mean Girls. She was ditzy is what I meant to say!” But his co-hosts were definitely not letting him get off the hook that easy!
The entire round table could NOT suppress their laughter, even as Willie tried to continue his opening, and even Amanda got in on it. “Amanda, please forgive me,” he asked her, upon realizing the flub wouldn’t be overlooked. “No, it’s great!” she responded, between giggles.
Eventually, the segment got going again, and Amanda had the opportunity to discuss Ted 2, in which she stars alongside Mark Wahlberg, 44, and a teddy bear voiced by Seth MacFarlane, 41. She joins the film as a female lead to replace Mila Kunis, 31, who was unable to film due to her pregnancy last year.
“Going to work every day was a dream. It was such an easy set,” Amanda gushed. “Seth, being the director and in control of the whole atmosphere, it was amazing. But it’s weird, jumping into a movie in the second installment of the franchise. It’s scary! I didn’t know what I was going to play!”
It turns out that Amanda’s role is as a lawyer, who Ted the teddy bear hires to help him prove he’s a legitimate person that can have kids. HollywoodLife.com got a peek at the film, and just like the first, it’s packed with plenty of laugh out loud moments, along with the typical Seth Macfarlane humor. You’ve been warned! Ted 2 hits theaters on June 26.
