Olivia Munn appeared on the fourth hour of the "Today" show on Thursday with Hoda Kotb, filling in for Kathie Lee Gifford and managed to get drunk in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

Munn, host of G4's "Attack of the Show!" and current star of NBC's "Perfect Couples" hit up Twitter before her appearance to announce that she was already tipsy.

"Getting ready w/@Hodakotb to get DayWasted as i host @TodayShow w/her for Kathie Lee... lots of St Pattys Day drinkin!! Live at 10am!" Munn wrote on Twitter, followed by, "About to go live on @TodayShow to host with @HodaKotb! Already feelin tipsy. Woo. Hoo."

During the episode, the ladies toasted green beer, did a beer tasting and Munn was strapped in to Gifford's booze-filled bra or "Wine Rack."

"I'm already drunk," Munn told Kotb. "They tell me I'm more fun when I'm drunk."

At one point, Munn remembered that she would be appearing on the E! show "The Soup" later in the day and mused that she might be too drunk already.

Munn also made fun of the fact that Kotb's ex-husband proposed to her in a horse-drawn carriage in Central Park.

"Did you guys just watch an 80s chick flick and then go off," Munn asked Kotb on the show. "And then did you realize that it's really horrible to ride in those carriages?"

When Kotb called herself a romantic, Munn said that the talkshow host was "not drinking enough."

During a cooking segment, Munn tasted a mashed potato dish and said, "You know how when you're drunk, everything tastes good?"
