'The View': Elisabeth Hasselbeck apologizes to Stanley Tucci for awkward question

elisabeth-hasselbeck-stanle.jpg Elisabeth Hasselbeck made quite the gaffe on Thursday's episode of "The View." She has since apologized to Stanley Tucci. Video below.

When interviewing Stanley Tucci about his new movie "The Lovely Bones," Tucci revealed that his wife Kate was against his taking the villain role because she had read the book.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck then asked Tucci if his wife had seen the movie yet. Except Tucci's wife succumbed to a battle with cancer last May.

Whoops.



Elisabeth then took to Twitter to express how bad she feels and that she apologized to Stanley personally. " it was an honest mistake with stanley tucci today & i called him to apologize. he forgave me (such grace)- if only i could forgive myself..."

You know, we aren't sure what the big deal is. It really seems like Hasselbeck did  just make an honest mistake or maybe she meant that his wife could have seen parts of it before she passed away, since it was filmed before Tucci even filmed "Julie & Julia."

A really awkward moment, to be sure. But not the end of the world.
