“60 Minutes” had a bit of a gaffe Sunday (March 6) when it was presenting a story on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ahead of his visit to Washington D.C. later this week.

In the segment, the news program was speaking of Trudeau’s mother, Margaret, and put on the screen a photo of “Sex and the City” actress Kim Cattrall.

The mix-up obviously has something to do with whom Cattrall is pictured in the photo — it is then-Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Justin’s father, who Cattrall went on a date with in 1981 after he had separated from his wife.

“We regret the error on one of the several video and still images shown of Margaret Trudeau. It was corrected online last night,” a spokesperson for “60 Minutes” tells The Hollywood Reporter.
