Penelope Cruz appeared genuinely embarrassed–and maybe even a slight bit angry–when Today Show host Savannah Guthrie talked about her feet.

Making the news program and talk show rounds promoting her upcoming film Zoolander 2, in which she stars alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz clearly wasn’t expecting Guthrie to bring up the subject.
“I don’t even know how I feel about this, I think you said it, that you, despite what you look like…you’ve said you have ugly feet,” Guthrie said.

“No, no, no, no, I never said that,” Penelope Cruz quickly replied.
All Cruz would admit to, with regard to Savannah Guthrie’s remark, was that as a former ballerina, she had lost more than her share of toenails throughout the years.
Do you think Savannah Guthrie should have asked Penelope Cruz about her alleged ugly feet? Isn’t that perhaps one of those topics one should inform a news show guest about prior to bringing it up live–on the air?
DANG! This reporter asks Penelope Cruz about her "ugly feet" and it gets AWKWARD!.. Too far right? https://t.co/iimx22q6lp

As Page Six reports, Penelope Cruz’s feet can’t be all that ugly. After all, she has been photographed wearing a variety of open-toed shoes while promoting Zoolander 2.
