Actors Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell faced an “awkward” and “cringe-worthy” moment during an interview on the Today Show when host Hoda Kotb directly asked if there was any real-life romance between them. The question arose during a discussion about their roles in the upcoming rom-com “Anyone But You,” where the actors share on-screen chemistry.

In “Anyone But You,” Sweeney and Powell play the characters Bea and Ben, who experience a fiery attraction that turns cold but later reunites at a destination wedding.

Hoda Kotb, the host of the Today Show, pointed to the chemistry between the two stars and asked if there was a real romance blossoming between them. The question led to a lighthearted response from Sweeney and Powell.

Both Sweeney and Powell laughed off the question, with Powell clarifying that there was no romance but emphasizing their mutual admiration for each other. Sweeney, engaged to her long-time partner Jonathan Davino, acknowledged the chemistry but insisted it was strictly professional.

Viewers had mixed reactions to Kotb’s direct question, with some expressing secondhand embarrassment and questioning the appropriateness of the inquiry. Others praised Kotb for being straightforward and asking what many were thinking.

“Anyone But You” is set to be released on December 22, allowing audiences to judge the on-screen chemistry between Sweeney and Powell for themselves.

Whether or not the interview question resonates positively with the audience, it has sparked discussions about the boundaries of personal inquiries during celebrity interviews.
