Jeremy Renner put Jennifer Lopez in an awkward spot at the Golden Globes after he ogled her “globes” and made a snarky comment about them.
“The Bourne Legacy” actor Jeremy Renner put undue attention on Jennifer Lopez’s cleavage when they came onstage to present the award for Best Actor in a Mini Series or TV movie. Apparently, Renner had a case of “golden globe-itis” because he eyeballed JLo’s much talked-about chest in her low-cut Zuhair Murad gown and basically described their circumference to a live audience on television.
Lopez, whose movie “The Boy Next Door” is set to be released on Jan. 23, 2015, offered to open the envelope with her long nails to reveal the winner’s name.
“You want me to do it?” she asked Renner. “I have the nails.”
“You’ve got the globes, too,” the 44-year-old “American Hustle” star quipped, staring pointedly at her décolletage.
Lopez gave a stunned pause then recovered with an embarrassed smile while the audience erupted in laughter. Renner, suddenly realizing his gaffe, appeared abashed about sexualizing their awards presentation moment.
However, both recovered from the awkward incident and proceeded to call out Billy Bob Thornton’s name for his “Fargo” win.
Afterwards, a gracious JLo let her co-presentor off the hook by gamely play-punching him for his comment.
TV audiences had a different view of the incident, however. Social media erupted with gripes against Renner’s actions on live television:
“Jeremy Renner just sexually harassed JLo on live TV,” one person commented, according to Us Weekly.
“Jeremy Renner really is a hawk eye… Dude couldn’t keep his letchiness away from jlo,” another observed.
On the other hand, Renner had his share of supporters, as well.
“Some people need to get a grip in society! How @Renner4Real ‘s comment was sexist is beyond me! Pure humour! #GoldenGlobes #JLo,” user @P3THY_94 said.
“HA! Jeremy Renner’s #GoldenGlobes comment about @jlo…such a good, off the cuff awards show moment. These are the things we watch for,” another said.
Was Jeremy Renner’s comment on Jennifer Lopez’s breasts a result of having been recently deprived of his wife? In December 2014, his Canadian spouse of 10 months, Sonni Pacheco, filed for divorce and demanded he return her passport immediately.
