In non-terrifying clown news, 'Younger' star Sutton Foster once dated a 'nice' clown


In non-terrifying clown news, 'Younger' star Sutton Foster once dated a 'nice' clown

WATCH: Clowns could use some good P.R. these days, so leave it to "Younger" star Sutton Foster to do just that this week at PaleyFest in New York City, where she told Circa about the time she dated some clown. And not a figurative one, either.

I once dated a clown. I think he was a clown in the Barnum & Bailey Circus. And he was very nice.
'Younger' star Sutton Foster

On the TV Land drama, the two-time Tony-winning actress plays Liza Miller, a divorced 40-year-old mom who claims she's 26 to try to boost her career and her social life. Circa asked Foster, who wed screenwriter Ted Griffin in 2014, about the funniest or most embarrassing thing she'd done for a crush in real life. She opted to share a circumstance.

Foster wasn't the lone "Younger" cast member to share a funny story involving an former crush.

Her co-star, Nico Tortorella, said he wrote goofy love songs for his crushes as a young kid.

Tortorella seemed to sing a new one on the spot: "I wrote you letters in the second grade...."

Cast members also reflected on the advice they'd give themselves if they were 26 again.

  • Foster: "I think I wish I could have told my 26-year-old self to calm down, and to stop making things harder than they already are."
  • Molly Bernard: "I would say, like, give it a minute. You're going to figure it out. Go for a walk and chill. You're going to be fine."
  • Peter Hermann: "At 26, I thought it was too late for a lot of things. ... I would just say, 'You have time. It's OK. You have time.'"
