Well, not like that. Here’s how it all went down.
Seacrest tried in jest to act as if he has absolutely no bias towards his “special guest” -- his girlfriend of several years -- and her recent impressive list of successes. Which included a moment where he feigned graciousness for her taking the time to speak with him now that she’s got so much going on.
The most telling bit came at the beginning of the segment when she reveals that she just cut off all her hair for a role. A week earlier and we could have included her in our list of Female Celebs Who’ve Shaved It All Off – though she assured a clearly panic stricken Seacrest that it’s “not buzzed.”
The two, who seem to be engaged to be engaged, clearly adore each other as they playfully go back and forth, him addressing her repeatedly by her full name while calling her a “rising star.”
Seacrest wraps up the interview with, "I'm very proud of you. Go see Julianne in the movie. Thanks, darling."
To which she responded with, "Alright. Love you. Bye."
And you could hear him blush as he said, simply, “bye.”
A chorus of random voices from his behind-the-scenes people then commence chastising him for not returning the “L” word sentiment.
Seacrest seemed a bit bashful and replied with, "Because you guys won't shut up," before cutting to commercial.
Anyone can tell by his intonation that he’s crazy about the blonde beauty. He just froze up at the last second, possibly chocking on the couple palpable cuteness.
What do you want to bet he’s already purchased her some flowers… or, considering his net worth, like a private island to make up for what he didn’t say in the heat of the moment?
