StevensSusanna Reid put her foot in her mouth spectacularly yesterday while interviewing actor Dan Stevens. The presenter gave Stevens a fit of the giggles during his appearance on ITV's Good Morning Britain yesterday (September 4) when she asked the actor whether he had to "beat off" a lot of American men for his part in new movie The Guest. "You play this apparent all-American hero and this is a big opportunity for you in Hollywood," Reid said. "You must have had to beat off a lot of American men to get this part?" Both Stevens and the show's crew then began to laugh, before Reid asked: "Why does that make you giggle? Did you not have to beat them off?" Stevens poked fun at Reid's unintentional innuendo on Twitter shortly after his appearance on the show - see his tweet below. Watch the hilarious clip below (the best bit starts at 1:30) - and also check out Dan Stevens talking about his buff new look here.
