Larry King is quite the flirt, according to “The People v. O.J. Simpson” star Connie Britton.
The 50-year-old actress was centre stage at her Vulture Festival panel discussion on Saturday in New York City. Britton dove into some of her career highlights thus far, from “American Crime Story” to “Nashville”.
During conversations about her role as Faye Resnick on “American Crime Story”, Britton recalled an interesting encounter with Larry King. The two entertainers were doing a scene together and Britton remembers being “so nervous about that Larry King interview because Larry King knew Faye — that actually happened.”
“I sat down with him and we hadn’t rehearsed or anything and we did one take and he leaned over to me and said, ‘You are Faye! Oh my God, it’s like she’s sitting in front of me,'” she continued.
The actress said she “was so happy, so relieved! And we did one more take and he said, ‘Someone get us a room,’” Britton added. “And that was it — we only did two takes. So then I’m walking off with him holding my hand and I think he maybe thought it was going to happen!”
Britton first rose to prominence with roles in “The Brothers McMullen” and the ABC sitcom “Spin City” — plus a performance in “Friday Night Lights”.
