Jenna Fischer suffered a wardrobe malfunction just before her “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” appearance on Monday, but the actress insisted the “show must go on” and did the interview wearing her bath towel.
The 44-year-old, who has been busy promoting her latest show “Splitting Up Together”, told Kimmel, 50, that the zipper on her dress had broken not long before she was due to appear on the show. However, in true “Missouri girl” fashion, she didn’t let that ruin her evening.
Fischer, who brought the dress out to show the talk show host what had happened, explained: “So, this was my outfit for tonight and I waited a little too long to get dressed. Then my zipper broke, and I panicked.”
She then insisted, “The show must go on,” as Kimmel quipped: “Well, I’m not complaining, for sure,” before saying it felt like the pair had bumped into one another at the spa.
“Mentally, I’m freaking out [a little] that I’m on a talk show in a towel,” Fischer, who teamed her top half with jeans and heels, continued. “But I’m physically very comfortable.”
The actress’ appearance also saw her talk about the moment she bumped into the Kardashians during a recent trip to Japan. Fisher even ended up recreating one of Kourtney Kardashian’s Instagram poses.
