Hoda appreciates the artistry and craftsmanship that go into making a film, so she was especially excited to meet one of the producers of the new movie, "Argo." OK, the producer also happened to be George Clooney.

Hoda checked out the historical drama (which stars Ben Affleck and Bryan Cranston) and bumped into the stunning writer-director-screenwriter-producer. She even got a (really good) picture with him, which is probably not that difficult given the fact that he is generally considered to be very easy on the eyes. She had nothing but good things to say about him and the film, but her mother, however, was less effusive.

Hoda reported that on seeing the picture, she asked "Who's that?"

Sorry George, you can't win 'em all.
