by at . Comments

Let there be now be no argument over the classiest man in Hollywood.

A day after one of the more embarrassing interview gaffes to ever air on live television - Kathie Lee Gifford asking Martin Short multiple questions about his wife, despite the fact that she passed away two years ago - the veteran actor has taken the very high road and accepted the talk show host's apology.

"I think that it's live television and people make mistakes and there's no ill will intended," Short said to E! News of the incident. "And I think it's nice to aspire to be that way."

Soon after the interview aired, Gifford took to Twitter and wrote:

"I send my sincerest apologies to @MartinShort and his family. He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I'm so grateful."
