Morena Baccarin, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'It's always interesting how conversations can take unexpected turns. Take Morena Baccarin's appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). Maybe Kimmel had an idea he could steer the conversation around to the topic it wound up on, but it started innocently enough by discussing Baccarin's mother, Vera Setta.

Setta is a big name in television and theater in Brazil, and, as Baccarin revealed, she was responsible for bringing the popular stage play 'The Vagina Monologues' to Brazil. We're pretty sure you can imagine what they were suddenly talking about.

Kimmel wanted to know how that title was said in Brazil, noting specifically one word, which he thought sounded much better that way.

"It's hot," Baccarin agreed. But then she talked of how her mother loved being able to throw that word into conversations to mortify her daughter when she would bring dates home.

"My 'Vagina' is one of the biggest grossing 'Vagina's in [Brazil]," she would say. "My 'Vagina' had a really big opening." It was all very impressive talk about a successful stage production, but we're sure it was horribly embarrassing for her daughter all the same, as well as being uncomfortable for her dates.
