His kind comment gained a lot of traction on social media, and later that afternoon, was addressed by Owens during his appearance on Entertainment Tonight.

"That was kind of cool," Owens, 57, said. "I mean, that kind of sounded like he was saying, 'Come work with me.' I'm so, like, skeptical. Like, really? Are you actually saying come work with me? Because we've never worked together before. So, that's a very, very generous thing for him to say. And we'll see what happens with that. But, that's encouraging."

Radar readers know Owens openly spoke about his supermarket job during a talk with Good Morning America. Though he was embarrassed that people found out about his gig, he said that no one should feel sorry for him, because he had a wonderful TV career.
