This Old Billy Bush Interview With Jennifer Lopez Is Creepy AF
Life is much different these days for Billy Bush, the former “Access Hollywood” host who was caught on video egging on Donald Trump while Trump made very lewd comments about women and sexual assault. Bush has since been fired from his “Today” show gig at NBC. The damning video footage, which was recorded in 2005, features Bush making comments about actor Arianne Zucker‘s legs while he and Trump were in a bus. Zucker was on set to meet the duo when they arrived for an “Access Hollywood” special.
Immediately after Bush and Trump exited the bus, Bush asked Zucker to hug them, which made it clear that Bush wasn’t just playing along with Trump – he was a willing participant. Now, another “Access Hollywood” video is getting some attention. This one, from 2002, features Bush interviewing Jennifer Lopez and asking about her butt. No lie.

Lopez was there to talk about the movie “Maid In Manhattan” and her engagement to Ben Affleck. Somehow that translated into “ask about her butt” for Bush.

She probably held back from slapping him because she was on camera.

No he didn’t!
His reason for asking with such conviction? Well, everyone else is talking about it.Credit: ABC / Access Hollywood / heather_p / YouTube
So, just because everyone else is talking about it it makes it okay for you to ask her repeatedly about it? Nah, bruh.
At this point, as the awkward interview goes a little off track, Lopez calls in her young costar to stop the booty interrogation.Credit: ABC / Access Hollywood / heather_p / YouTube
You might remember little Tyler Posey as her son on “Maid In Manhattan.” How could someone ask that question in front of a child? As if this isn’t evident, this is a blatant cry for help!
And with young Posey in the room, she asks Bush to ask her about it again. Spoiler: He doesn’t because it is not appropriate to ask.Credit: ABC / Access Hollywood / heather_p / YouTube
A total Jedi move by J. Lo to drive the point home that she wasn’t comfortable with the question.
But that didn’t stop him from putting this little tidbit into his introduction.Credit: ABC / Access Hollywood / heather_p / YouTube
Yeah, not cool, Bush. Not cool at all.Credit: American Idol / FOX / American Idol / GIPHY
Unfortunately, the video of the creepy exchange has been removed from YouTube but the gifs still exist for all to see.
