Take that! The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik gave Piers Morgan a piece of her mind (i.e., a look at her chest) on Monday, February 8, during an appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden.
The British host brought up a recent spat between Morgan, 50, and actress Susan Sarandon that has been dubbed “#Cleavagegate.” It all started when the reporter tweeted about Sarandon’s bra top at the SAG Awards on Saturday, February 3.
“Would Susan Sarandon wear this to a funeral? No,” Morgan wrote at the time. “It was thus horribly inappropriate for an In Memoriam tribute.”
Sarandon promptly fired back with a throwback shot of herself in a bra staring at Michelangelo’s David statue.
“Today’s #TBT is dedicated to @piersmorgan,” she wrote.

Many other ladies joined in with the #Cleavagegate antics, tweeting photos of their cleavage to Morgan. The feud was discussed on The Late Late Show, with Morgan clarifying, “I have absolutely no problem with what she wore. It’s fabulous. She looks amazing. I have no problem with the fact she’s 69. I don’t care how old she is. I had a slight problem, watching it, that she was presenting what is normally a pretty solemn, very respectful tribute to people who died in the previous year.”
Fellow Late Late Show guest Bialik, 40, listened to Morgan’s explanation quietly, but when the Brit took a jab at feminists who sent him photos of their cleavage, the CBS star stood up and faced Morgan.
“You know what, I identify as a feminist. I’m going to do it this way,” she said, seemingly opening her dress to show off her boobs while facing away from the camera.
Bialik later teased Morgan on Twitter, writing, “@piersmorgan @latelateshow the pleasure was mine. I hope our paths cross again…with or without cleavage…”

Morgan, for his part, made one last nod to Sarandon from The Late Late Show’s green room, placing his headshot next to the actress’.
“So @SusanSarandon was on the @LateLateShow @JKcorden wall,” he captioned the Twitter photo. “It seemed a shame not to join her. #cleavagegate.”
