Get your mind out the gutter, Kelly Ripa

The set of Live! With Kelly and Michael took a naughty turn early Thursday morning when Oscar-nominee Ethan Hawke stopped by the show and spoke about his documentary, Seymour: An Introduction

Sounds innocent enough, right? Well, that was until the Boyhood star began to share how the subject of his film, Seymour Bernstein, helped him overcome his stage fright, telling hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan, "Of course, the pianists have it worse than anybody. I mean, you want to talk about game-day jitters. If I'm doing Macbeth at Lincoln Center, that's stressful, right?" 

But apparently, Ripa heard a very different word (we're talking "penis," folks), prompting her to quickly ask Ethan for clarification.

"Did you say 'pianist'?" Ripa says. 

"You may have heard...another word...I said pianist, like a piano," he insists before scolding the blond beauty. "I have no idea what word you're thinking of! And I have to say, I'm a little shocked!" 

"No, I'm not sure what that has to do with anything," she replies. "I couldn't figure it out."

"I'm trying to have a serious conversation, and you bring us down into the gutter," Hawke says as Strahan laughs and shakes his head.

Earlier in the interview, the Before Midnight star opened up about the 87th Annual Academy Awards as well as his loss to Whiplash star J.K. Simmons in the category of Best Supporting Actor (he even predicted he was going to lose!). 

"I saw that movie, Whiplash; it was so good. I walked out and my wife said, 'How do you like it?' 'Oh, it was great,'" he shares in a somber tone.

"'Why do you say that?'" his wife replied at which point he admitted, "'That guy just took my Oscar.' I really knew it. The guy is brilliant in that movie. I love that movie." 

As for whether Hawke ever gets tired of the Oscars glitz and glam? Press play to find out!
