Olivia Wilde dings Jeb Bush over 'hot' Supergirl comment

Posted on

Unsurprisingly, the comments have followed Benoist to various talk-show appearances ever since. On CBS This Morning, she laughed off Bush’s words: “You know, I don’t know what to think about it. [I’m] glad he’s excited to watch the show,” she said.

And on Thursday’s episode of The Late Late Show, the Bush clip ran again: host James Corden showed Bush’s gaffe to Benoist and fellow show guests Olivia Wilde and Saoirse Ronan.

“It may be the only thing he’s ever been right about,” Wilde said as Benoist laughed.
