It was her sparkly ring that caught his eye and he couldn't let it go.
Craig Ferguson tried mightily to tease an engagement announcement out of Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter on CBS's The Late Late Show airing Thursday, but she would only drop hints.
Pointing to her left hand, Ferguson asked, "Do you have some news?" Hunter regarded the ring and then looked up at Ferguson with a smile, replying, "Well, you know…"
Ferguson pretended to drop the subject, then continued, "It's a bold statement right there." Hunter quickly added, "I know, isn't it, though? It's very bold, from a very confident man." But she wouldn't say more.
