Chrissy Metz says she definitely did not call Alison Brie a “bitch” during the red carpet for the 2019 Golden Globes.
Earlier Sunday, while working the Red Carpet during the Facebook Live Golden Globes pre-show, the “This Is Us” actress was asked by her co-hosts about “GLOW” star Alison Brie. Metz said only nice things, but after the camera switched to a view of the carpet, many viewers thought it sounded like Metz said “she’s such a bitch.”
Multiple outlets, including TheWrap, initially reported that was what was said. However, Metz was adamant. “It’s terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated! I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart,” Metz said on Twitter Sunday night.
According to Vanity Fair reporter Nicole Sperling, Brie was bewildered by the whole thing.
“But why?” Sperling quoted Brie as saying. “I know her. I saw her on the carpet and I told her how beautiful she looked.”
Brie was nominated for best actress in a musical or comedy.
