Mitt Romney Says Gene Hackman Should Play Ann

    On a recent Live! with Kelly and Michael appearance, Mitt and Ann Romney got a little mixed up about gender. The Republican presidential nominee and his wife were asked what actor and actress they’d like to see play the other in a future film. Mitt, proving his expert listening skills, answered, “For me, my favorite actor is Gene Hackman, so I’d like Gene Hackman.”

    Ripa immediately responded with the question on everyone’s minds, “You want Gene Hackman to play your wife?” Mitt then laughed it off with a reference to The Birdcage, in which Hackman, a straight-laced, conservative politician, briefly wears drag after learning to accept homosexual rights.
