Debra Winger awkwardly shuts down Andy Cohen during interview
American actress Debra Winger shut down TV host Andy Cohen amid an interview. She said, "Let's Get Something Straight."
Winger, 63, appeared on Cohen’s "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" recently where they played “Plead the Fifth.”
In this typical fragment, the TV host asks his celebrity guests three questions regarding themselves, but they're permitted not to answer one of them if they choose.
Cohen's first question was about Harvey Weinstein. Winger named the film mogul as “the biggest pig or misogynist” she’d ever met in Hollywood.

Cohen proceeded to ask Winger to remark on something she had written about her former costar Shirley MacLaine in her book.
“Back in the ’80s, there were so many rumors about your relationship with Shirley MacLaine on 'Terms of Endearment.' You wrote about this in your book,” Cohen started before immediately being cut off.
“No! I didn’t write about her. She wrote about me!” Winger said. "Let’s try to get something straight. I mean, come on. It’s hard out here for a chimp."
Cohen then described her book called "Undiscovered" as "great" to cover things up.
“Thank you. I wrote a book, but I didn’t write about Shirley,” the “An Officer and a Gentleman” star responded.
The correction didn’t stop there. Cohen later asked Winger to rank the kissing abilities of her former co-stars - John Travolta, Richard Gere, Anthony Hopkins, and Robert Redford.
Winger said, “Oh god, what were you doing 40 years ago?”
“So you remember somebody you kissed 30 years ago? You don’t think that you sort of are busy investigating a character, which kind of puts you in another self-state? Right now it’s pretty hard to be authentically a person.”
Cohen replied, “I’m not an actor, so I actually don’t know whether I would remember or not."
"I dug kissing all of them. Some of them required a little more sucking in of the cheeks so as to simulate a tongue," Winger said.
Cohen took to social media after the segment concluded. He said on his Instagram Story, "Tonight’s show was rough. The team and I are having a cocktail to hash it out. I earned a drink tonight."
