Supergirl star Melissa Benoist laughed off Jeb Bush’s recent remarks that the actress was “pretty hot.”

Speaking to CBS This Morning on Monday, Benoist was asked what she thought of Bush saying he found the Supergirl star attractive.

“I heard about it,” she said, before breaking out in laughter. “You know, I don’t know what to think about it.” Benoist added that she was “glad he’s excited to watch the show.”

As predicted by Bush himself, the Republican presidential candidate hopeful made news last week when he commented on Benoist’s physical appearance.

Supergirl is on TV – I saw that when I was working out this morning,” Bush said during a Q&A. “There’s an ad promoting Supergirl. She looked pretty hot. I don’t know what channel it’s on, but I’m looking forward to that.”

Supergirl premieres Monday at 8:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
