Uh, what did Lindsey Vonn just say about ‘massages’ and JJ Watt’s groin area? While these two sports stars were on the ESPYS red carpet, Lindsey got pretty flirty while joking how JJ’s rehab involved plenty of rubdowns. Click to watch!
The 2016 ESPY Awards‘ best moment might have happened even before the show began. NFL superstar JJ Watt, 27, and gold-medal skier Lindsey Vonn, 31, got pretty flirty on the red carpet, especially when she started talking about his crotch!
While the two were hanging ahead of the July 13 event, Hannah Storm, 54, asked JJ how he was able to suffer so many injuries in the 2015-16 season but still win AP Defensive Player Of The Year. “I have a very good training staff and great teammates. That’s what it all comes down to,” JJ said.
“And lot of massages – in the groin area,” Lindsey added, cracking a smile before giving JJ a friendly poke. After that, the interview just fell apart as both she and JJ broke out in giggles.
While Lindsey were pretty flirty, she was likely joking about something JJ said during his recovery, according to The Big Lead. “Appreciate all the ‘nurses’ offering to help rehab my groin surgeries,” JJ tweeted on Jan. 30. “Didn’t realize there were so many qualified pros out there.” Huh. Was Lindsey offering or was she teasing about how she would probably have to take a number and get in line?
Lindsey Vonn and JJ Watt would make such a hot couple.

Maybe JJ’s date with Kate Hudson, 37, helped him get back on his feet? The two set off the “New Couple Alert” when they cuddled on Snapchat. They tried to make the social media app put a crown of stars on his head, but they kept going over to Kate. “Apparently the stars belong to the hottest person on the date. That’s why Kate wins,” JJ said. Wait — date?
However, when asked about it in an interview, Kate played if off as nothing. “We were just at dinner with just a bunch of people. That’s not even a real….” She trailed off, not giving a definitive answer. All she added was, “We have the same agent.” Hmmm.
What do you think about Lindsey joking about “massages” and JJ’s groin, HollywoodLifers? Was it funny, flirty or both?
