Kelly jokingly asked Russell, “Is it true that you became a lawyer — and you became gay — because of Will?” Kelly asked.

Kelly also made the comment, "I don’t know about the lawyer thing, but I think the Will & Grace thing and the gay thing is going to work out great!"

Messing, who plays Grace in Will & Grace, shared that she didn't know the cast would be appearing on Megyn Kelly Today and regretted going on. Yikes.

Jane's demeanor immediately changed when asked about the work she had done. Fonda replied, “We really want to talk about that right now?”

Jane did not appreciate Megyn talking about her look while she was there to promote a movie and quickly diverted the conversation back to the movie. 

Jane was later asked how she felt about the interview when she sat down with ET Canada, and she said, "It’s a weird thing to bring up — whether I’ve had plastic surgery or not. I have and I’ve talked about it. Seemed like the wrong time and place to ask that question,”

Viewers gave Jane a resounding, "Yaaas Queen!" for not answering Megyn's plastic surgery questions.
