Did Ryan Seacrest Diss Catherine Zeta-Jones at the 2013 Oscars?
The normally unflappable Ryan Seacrest ran into a few snags on E!’s red carpet for the 2013 Academy Awards, and at least one of the instances seemed to leave him a bit flustered. Some were calling his belly-rub of the glowing and pregnant Jenna Dewan-Tatum “inappropriate,” but it was his faux pas with Catherine Zeta-Jones that made us (and probably him) downright uncomfortable.
According to CinemaBlend.com, it all began with an inside joke between Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence. Prior to the red carpet, the (since-crowned) Oscar winner told buddy Emma Stone that she would look into E!’s Mani Cam and give her a shout-out. Apparently, the gorgeous starlet yelled, “Your ass is mine, Stone,” which may have been funny, except for one thing -- the cam wasn’t plugged in.
Ever the quick-thinking host, the American Idol host turned it into a joke but, as CinemaBlend.com put it, “you know he raised holy hell as soon as it was over.”
Shortly after the Mani Cam snafu, Ryan was interviewing Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The interview was going well until, as the conversation was wrapping up, Catherine offered to do the Mani Cam, and Ryan gave her the cold shoulder. Now everyone is asking -- did he purposely ignore her in order to avoid another embarrassing incident, or did he simply not hear her?
Watch the video and let us know what you think -- a snub on Ryan’s part, or much ado about nothing?
