Kristin Chenoweth Dishes on Tongue Kiss with Sean Hayes

"He's a very good kisser!" the Broadway star says of the Tony Awards host

The makeout session between Sean Hayes, and Kristin Chenoweth at Sunday's Tony Awards may have surprised audiences, but it was nothing but nice for the two Broadway stars!

"The kiss came easy -- and it was real, too!" Chenoweth told UsMagazine.com on Monday. "He's a very good kisser. And yes, I enjoyed myself. And yes, he had good breath!"

Chenoweth, 41, revealed that she and her buddy Hayes, who hosted the show, came up with the idea for the kiss (with tongue!) in response to a recent controversial Newsweek essay that claimed that because Hayes is openly gay, he can't be convincing as Chenoweth's onstage husband in the musical Promises, Promises.

"We wanted to address the Newsweek thing, but we didn’t want to say it," she said.

Chenoweth was so appalled by the magazine's controversial editorial published last month that she posted her own biting response on its website.

"As a longtime fan of Newsweek and as the actress currently starring opposite the incredibly talented (and sexy!) Sean Hayes in the Broadway revival of Promises, Promises, I was shocked on many levels to see Newsweek publishing Ramin Setoodeh's horrendously homophobic 'Straight Jacket,'" she wrote in the comments section. "From where I stand -- on stage, with Hayes, every night -- I've observed nothing 'wooden' or 'weird' in his performance, nor have I noticed the seemingly unwieldy presence of a 'pink elephant' in the Broadway Theater. The Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Tony members must have also missed that large animal when nominating Hayes' performance for its highest honors this year." 

Well, they certainly showed him!
