UPDATE: After becoming aware that the press was picking up her hot mic moment, Chrissy Metz tweeted about the Alison Brie moment, hoping to clear things up. "It's terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated," she wrote. "I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart."
As for Brie, Vanity Fair writer and reporter Nicole Sperling tweeted that the actress had not heard Metz's comment and seemed confused by it. "But why?," she asked. "I know her. I saw her on the carpet and I told her how beautiful she looked." She later posted a photo of herself with Metz from the 2018 SAG Awards on her Instagram Story, writing, "Nothing but love for @chrissymetz!! Rumors can't keep us down."
She also shared a photo to her story of herself with Metz and the caption: "Nothing but love for @chrissymetz! Rumors can't keep us down."
And Chrissy's team released another statement about the controversial moment. "Chrissy has nothing but admiration and respect for Alison and, frankly, every fellow actor who must wade through this much-too-common attempt to create a feud among colleagues," the actress' team shared. "This 'story' is a complete fabrication and deserves no further momentum. "
Hot mic, Chrissy!
In what might be 2019's first new celebrity feud—or more likely just a poorly-timed joke accidentally caught on camera—Chrissy Metz was caught calling Alison Brie a "bitch" during the tail-end of her interview on the 2019 Golden Globes Facebook Live pre-show on the red carpet outside the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, Jan. 6.
After speaking with co-hosts AJ Gibson and Missi Pyle about the third season of This Is Us, returning with its winter premiere on Tuesday, Jan. 15, the actress was asked to help them throw to the GLOW star at the other end of the carpet.
