Aubrey was reportedly ejected from the annual awards show on April 14 after crashing the stage and trying to take an award from Will Ferrell. The moment was anything but scripted. Watch the hilariously awkward video!
Aubrey Plaza was seated in the front row of the MTV Movie Awards at Sony Picture Studios Lot in Hollywood, California on April 14 when she ran up on stage during Will Ferrell’s speech for the Comedic Genius award and she started pulling on his award. The actress was barefoot, so maybe she mistook the award for a sexy pair of pumps?
Aubrey Plaza Ejected From MTV Movie Awards
“What’s happening?” Will asked. “Are you OK?”
Will maintained a firm grip on his award and Aubrey eventually gave up.
The Parks and Recreation star walked back to her seat, but there’s a possibility she was plugging her new movie because she had The To Do List written across her chest. I guess that’s one way to have people stare at your chest — or you could be like JWoww and just wear a dress that threatens to expose your bodacious body!
“Aubrey Plaza, everyone. Just like we rehearsed it. Perfect, it was perfect. Not too long, not too short. Right on the money,” Will joked after the awkward encounter, except it felt like anything but a joke.
Will Ferrell Was Kanye’d
According to MTV, however, it was not rehearsed. Shortly after the encounter, Aubrey was asked to leave the show. The network called the stunt “a Kanye,” referring to when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. (Seriously, it’s only a matter of time before this term becomes a norm in Dictionaries — feel free to gloat, Kanye.)
According to HollywoodLife.com sister site Deadline, Will told MTV, “I think she wanted to tell me something important. It was just a lot of hot liquor breath and sweat. Then she ran away.”
Whether or not Aubrey’s stunt was rehearsed, her new movie The To Do List, due out Aug. 16, got a lot of free press!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Aubrey have been ejected from the awards show?
