"It so happens I got a pedicure this week," Behar joked before presenting her feet to the Oscar winner
Matthew McConaughey can add masseuse to his professional arsenal of skills!
This isn't the first time McConaughey took the 80-year-old moderator's foot into his lap, as fans may remember back in 2006, the duo went viral for the same moment.
After a flashback clip of the incident played, Behar described the massage as a “highlight” of her life and pulled her foot out onto the Hot Topics table while coyly adding, “It so happens I got a pedicure this week.”

The Oscar winner immediately went to work and began rubbing her foot as he shared a personal anecdote about his father’s history with massaging his dates.
“This is my dad’s trick,” McConaughey said, explaining how he and his older brothers would notice how their dates would arrive earlier and earlier.
He continued, “We’re going out at 8, they’d show up at 7. ‘Why’d you show up at 7?’ When we walked out and ready to go on the date, who is sitting on the couch getting a foot rub? Your date! Dad would always give them a foot rub.”
Behar was more than satisfied with his performance and noted, “Reflexology is your next career.”
Stunned by the interaction, Whoopi Goldberg said, "I'm just going to let all of that go by," before segueing back to their original topic.
Despite the playful stunt, McConaughey and Behar got into more serious topics elsewhere during his appearance on the talk show.
"As far as office, I will always measure what category I can be most useful," he said, as Behar interjected. "Do you think you can get elected in Texas, being anti-gun?"
He appeared to mull the question over before raising a finger to her face, stating, "One thing about me and politics is, to give you a direct statement right there is me playing a game I'm not interested in playing."
