The “Big Little Lies” actor told the embarrassing story Wednesday on “Conan”.

As he recalled, between takes, Witherspoon told a joke, which caused Scott to snort in laughter.

“A string of snot came out and wrapped itself around my nose,” the actor said. “And I just excused myself and […] the makeup person got a Kleenex and wiped it off.”

Rather than mention what happened or apologize, Scott tried to ignore it throughout the rest of filming.

“For the six months afterward, until the show premiered, I was like, Should I text her and make a joke about the snot? And I never did but I tortured myself about it.”
