During Monday morning's Today show Oscar coverage Meredith Vieira pointed out the hugs between Hurt Locker co-stars Anthony Mackie and Jeremy Renner from the time the film was nominated to Oscar night, and asked if it was something she needed to be "worried" about.
VIEIRA: "You hugged him pretty tight, I must say, in the moment. There was a lot of man lovin' goin' on last night. Do I have reason to be worried?"
MACKIE: Not from me. No reason.
VIEIRA: "Okay, you're fine? Yeah?"
Al Roker expresses astonishment at the line of questioning.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…
In related news, Renner hugs generously and often.
