Carrie and Brad threw complete shade at Renee Zellweger during the 2014 CMA Awards on Nov. 5. In the middle of mocking other celebs, they threw in a dig about how unrecognizable the actress now looks.
Well, we knew this was bound to happen! At the 48th annual Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, Tenn., hosts Carrie Underwood, 31, and Brad Paisley, 42, majorly dissed a ton of stars during their opening monologue — and we couldn’t believe they took a shot at Renee Zellweger! You’ve got to hear what they said about her face.
Carrie Underwood Disses Renee Zellweger
After totally dissing Taylor Swift and ebola victims, they took a jab at Renee.
“Though we refuse to joke about Renee Zellweger. First of all…she could be here. I mean, how would we know?” the hosts joked. Of course, they were referencing Renee’s face that looks . . . different. In October, Renee stepped out at an Elle magazine event and looked completely uunrecognizable She later spoke out about her look though, and wasn’t even upset about the backlash she was getting.
“I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows,” she told People. “My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy.For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”
We love that she’s happy. And, while we laughed at Carrie’s joke, we are kind of sad. Plus, let’s just remind you — Renee used to be married to Kenny Chesney, who is there tonight. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Was the joke too harsh? Did you think it was funny?
