Of all the celebrities at the Academy Awards, Jennifer Lawrence told Piers Morgan she was most excited about seeing Al Roker, who was working the red carpet for NBC. Morgan was astounded: “Of all the people you could possibly see, Al Roker?” The moment, which played out during CNN’s red carpet special, was played up this morning on “Today.”
“Piers Morgan is trying to get her to change her answer,” said Willie Giest to Roker, who was live in Hollywood with Meredith Vieira. “She will not back down. She wants to meet Al Roker.”
“She has a solid backbone and she will not be brow beaten by a guy with a name of something that a ship pulls into,” joked Roker.
