Supergirl Star on Jeb Bush’s ‘Pretty Hot’ Comment: ‘I Don’t Know What to Think About It’

The star of the new CBS series Supergirl responded to Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush‘s previous comments about her physical appearance on Monday’s episode of CBS This Morning.

Bush revealed last week that he thought Melissa Benoistlooked pretty hot” when discussing the recent ads for the new Supergirl series, which premieres Monday night on CBS. So of course the morning show hosts wanted to know if Benoist had heard the quote from Bush, and what she thought about it.

“I heard about it,” she said, “but you know I don’t know what to think about it.”

For a brief moment, Benoist became a personified microcosm of almost everyone else who watched Bush creepily commenting on her looks when she started laughing uncontrollably. In between giggles, however, she managed to add: “I’m glad he’s excited to watch the show.”
