Golden Globes 2019 got itself an early controversy when This Is Us star Chrissy Metz seemed to call GLOW star Alison Brie a bitch on the red carpet. A couple of hours later, Metz denied saying anything bad about Brie. But TV viewers heard something, and clips of the moment quickly started making the rounds. Here's one video that captured the moment, although it's hard to make out the ending -- which is the key part:
Since we don't see Chrissy Metz say the end part on camera, it's very possible she...
1.) Was just joking around. "I'm like 'Do I [know her]'? She's such a bitch!" And maybe it would be clear she was just kidding if we saw her.
2.) Didn't really say she's such a "bitch," it just sounded that way to many TV viewers. Maybe she said "such a babe"? Or even "she's so sweet"?
There's nothing obvious that would've come between the two stars. They even seemed to be friends. As Entertainment Weekly noted, Chrissy Metz and Alison Brie smiled and posed together last year at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. So I'm leaning toward the idea that Metz was joking around with the red carpet hosts.
UPDATE: Later on Sunday, while the Globes were still airing, Chrissy Metz took to Twitter to deny a story about calling Alison Brie a bitch, tweeting:
I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart.
It didn't look like Alison Brie heard the comment, it was just picked up by TV viewers. But this will surely get back to Alison Brie in some way. What did Chrissy Metz say, is the question she didn't answer.
Alison Brie was nominated this year for Best Actress In A Comedy Series for her lead role as Ruth Wilder in Netflix's GLOW, the amazing series on the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. The actress is married to Dave Franco, and they co-starred in his brother James Franco's The Disaster Artist, which was nominated at last year's Globes for Best Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy.
