A forgettable TV interview turned into one to treasure for Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, who were in hysterics when it became clear that the news anchor interviewing about their new film hadn't actually seen it.

The KWGN host kept the discussion of The Skeleton Twins pretty vague as he interviewed them live, but if that wasn't a sign that he was lying about having seen it, this exchange made it very clear.

Parente: "Kristen, I am thinking, on this program, of doing the news completely full-frontal, completely nude. Do you recommend that? Do you have advice for going nude?"

Wiig, confused: "Um, do I have advice for going nude?"

P: "You do it in the film!"

W: "Not this movie. That's a different movie."

The pair then burst into laughter as Parente cringes at his mistake, with Hader joking: "I'm nude in this movie, and I'm upside down the whole film. It takes place on Mars."

Pushing the host on it, he asks: "Did you see this film? Chris. Chriiiiiis."

It's been a bad week for TV news stations, with KTVA's Charlo Greene quitting live on-air in sensational fashion and News 12 The Bronx's Matt Pieper going on a sweary anti-benefits rant without realising he was still on air.
