Michael Keaton is so sorry, not sorry for that ‘Hidden Fences’ flub

Update: Jan. 9, 4:03 p.m. PT: Michael Keaton is so sorry, not sorry about that Golden Globes Hidden Fences flub.

During an on-camera interview with TMZ right after the show last night, Keaton said, “Let’s make this official: I’m sorry, I apologize, I screwed it up.”

He wasn’t even aware the mess-up had gone viral before TMZ made him aware after the show.

He then added sarcastically, “I’m a horrible person. I’m a horrible person.”

But also said he would “sleep pretty well” that night. Aka, let’s all move on. Mistakes happen.

Check out the full interview video below.

Jenna Bush Hager, meanwhile, has apologized for her Golden Globes night gaffe, confusing the names of Fences and Hidden Figures.

Hager was interviewing celebs on the Golden Globes red carpet before the show when she made the mistake. Talking with Pharrell Williams, she said, “So, you’re nominated for Hidden Fences.” Williams is actually nominated for Hidden Figures. The mistake was immediately called out online, especially since the two films she confused both feature black casts.

Hager appeared on Monday morning’s episode of the Today show, where she offered viewers a heartfelt apology for the mix up.

If I offended people, I am deeply sorry,” she said. “It was a mistake because as y’all know I’m not perfect. What I didn’t want to do is make anybody feel lesser than what they are.”

Hager also said she’s seen both Hidden Figures and Fences, and called both of them brilliant.

Michael Keaton made the same mistake from the Golden Globes stage, but so far, has stayed silent about it.

Meanwhile, Hager’s co-host, Al Roker, had her back on Today, saying all the social media hate directed at Hager is “a cheap shot.” Roker, however, is kind of known for embarrassing live TV mess-ups, including one at the Golden Globes in which he called Jessica Biel “Jessica Alba.”
