Actress Ali Wentworth raised eyebrows and sparked outrage when she suggested parents watch pornography with their children since “you can’t stop them.”

The wife of ABC News’ “Good Morning America” co-host, George Stephanopoulos, revealed in a new interview that rather than let them view it on their own, she “would” watch porn with the couple’s teenage daughters Elliott, 17, and Harper, 15.

“In porn, women have been conditioned to look and act a certain way,” the 55-year-old “Night Cap” actress and comedian told Debra Messing and Mandana Dayani on “The Dissenters” podcast last week.

“They are performing and it’s dangerous to have boys see this as something women want,” Wentworth said. “You can’t stop them, so I would watch it with them. I would look at the porn with them that one time, like, ‘They’re performing.’”

Wentworth went on to explain how she tries to instill teaching moments while scrolling through social media with her daughters.

“I say, ‘Do you see this girl? There is a hole she is trying to fill,’” the “Go Ask Ali” author said. I use humor to try to converse with them and say things like, ‘Did you drop out of school today. Did you get married today?’”

Us Weekly called the story a “hot take,” and noted that Wentworth boasted in her 2018 memoir about her sex life with Stephanopoulos whom she married in 2001.

“I’m not ashamed of it. There’s nothing to be ashamed of!” she said on Good Morning America in April 2018.

The couple recounted their experiences with the coronavirus after both becoming infected back in April. Wentworth told Jimmy Kimmel Live” at the time that she was “deathly ill for three weeks with a high fever, sweating, achy,” while the “Good Morning America” host essentially had “no symptoms”

Wentworth’s podcast interview was promoted by the program’s co-host, left-wing actress Debra Messing, who tweeted about the author and comedian as a “very bright, irreverent, profound, compassionate, wise lady.”

Twitter users were not too impressed with Messing’s take.

But Wentworth’s pornography comments and ideas about parenting did not sit well with social media users who expressed their shock and criticism on Twitter.
