Now this is really gross! Did Peter Dinklage spit gum into his wife’s mouth at the 2015 Emmy Awards? The ‘Game of Thrones’ star admitted he was chewing gum when they were announcing the nominees in his category, but when he took the stage to accept his trophy he clearly didn’t have gum in his mouth! What’s the deal?
Peter Dinklage, 46, apparently has a very understanding partner. During the 2015 Emmy Awards when his name was called as the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama, he leaned over and kissed his wife Erica Schmidt. But after turning his head away briefly, he appeared to lean over and kiss her again. That move has caused some fans to let out a huge EWWW that he used her mouth as a gum receptacle!

When Viola Davis, 50, announced “and the Emmy goes to Peter Dinklage,” at the Sept. 20 Emmy ceremony, the camera immediately cut to the Game of Thrones winner. Peter turned to kiss his wife but appeared to be chewing on something while he was planting one on her. After briefly pulling away he leaned in to her mouth again and when he turned to head to the stage he was no longer masticating.
After reaching the stage, Peter was clearly shocked by his win. “I wasn’t prepared at all. I was even chewing gum” he admitted. The possible gum swap had fans freaking at the possibility. Here are a few of the Twittersphere’s comments on the sticky situation.
Take a look at this video, because it appears like he ditched the gum in Erica’s mouth. Now THAT is a loyal wife, or at least a very tolerant one. At least he didn’t show up on stage chewing it because that would have been a really rude way to accept the honor. Maybe he swallowed it? But it sure doesn’t look like that happened.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Peter ditched his gum in his wife’s mouth?
