Eagle-eyed Canadians who watched the “60 Minutes” profile of Justin Trudeau were quick to call out the American news program for apparently confusing actress Kim Cattrall for the prime minister’s mother, Margaret.
“60 Minutes” ran a piece on Trudeau Sunday night, ahead of his state visit to Washington this week, where he’ll meet with U.S. President Barack Obama.
The segment delved into Trudeau’s political and familial past, including the highly-publicized marriage of his parents, former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and Margaret Trudeau.
Only when it came to archival footage, there was a bit of a mix-up.
After the program aired, several Twitter users pointed out that the show featured a black-and-white image of the elder Trudeau with Canadian actress Kim Cattrall -- whom he famously dated – when talking of Pierre’s relationship with Margaret.
The “60 Minutes” profile included interviews with the prime minister and his wife, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, as well as footage of Justin Trudeau at his father's funeral, at his boxing club and at a winter carnival with his family.
Cattrall took the error in good stride, sending out a tongue-in-cheek tweet saying she "couldn't be more proud" to have a son as the prime minister of Canada.
