NEW YORK, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- "Today" co-host Meredith Vieira apologized on-air for a coarse word used by her guest -- Hollywood screen icon and activist Jane Fonda.

Fonda, 70, said the C-word Thursday when she appeared on the show with playwright Eve Ensler to discuss Ensler's famous work "The Vagina Monologues" and the 10th anniversary of V-Day, an initiative Ensler started to stop violence against females around the globe, People.com said.

The comment came after Vieira asked Fonda why she initially wasn't a fan of Ensler's show.

"It wasn't that I wasn't a big fan. I hadn't seen the play. I live in Georgia," Fonda said. "I was asked to do a monologue called 'C---.' And I said, 'I don't think so; I've got enough problems. And then I came to New York to see Eve and it changed my life."

"We were talking about 'The Vagina Monologues' and Jane Fonda inadvertently said a word from the play that you don't say on television," People.com reported Vieira said after a news break on the morning chat show. "It was a slip and obviously she apologizes, and so do we. We would do nothing to offend the audience. So please accept that apology."
