Southside Steve, host of Atlanta’s hit radio show, Rock Morning’s on Rock 100.5 with Jason Bailey, tells HollywoodLife.com that he’s truly sorry if he offended Kate Mara during a ‘Fantastic Four’ press day on July 30. Even though he questioned her for chopping off her hair and complimented her feet, he said he was being ‘genuine’ and it wasn’t a ‘stunt.’
If you live in Atlanta, then you know Southside Steve. The veteran radio host, famous for his hilarious jokes, daily celebrity news updates and widely discussed foot fetish, on Rock Morning’s 100.5 with Jason Bailey, wants Kate Mara, 32, to know he’s sorry if she took his comments as sexist. HollywoodLife.com spoke with the radio host who tells us that while the world may think he was being a sexist jerk during a press day with Kate and her Fantastic Four co-star Michael B. Jordan, that he was actually trying to ease the awkwardness in the room, once Michael answered his phone in the middle of their interview.
To give you a refresher, Steve’s comments that came under fire were about her new pixie hairstyle: “You’re way hot. Why’d you cut the hair? Your hair was beautiful. No, you look great in short hair or long hair and the long hair was excellent.” And also: “I’m a toe guy, your toes are fine.” Steve tells us that despite what you think, he really didn’t mean to offend Kate and that he was just trying to have a little fun, considering the actors seemed exhausted from their press day and Steve and Jason’s interview was one of the last.
