Selena Gomez, 31, and Emily Blunt, 40, poked fun at the lip reading drama that ensued during some of their conversations at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards last week. The singer and actress posed for a photo with their hands over their mouths when they both attended the AFI Awards in Los Angeles, CA on Friday night. “We shall not speak lol,” Selena captioned the photo, which she shared to her Instagram story shortly after the event.

In the snapshot, which was posted on Getty Images, Selena was wearing a pinstripe black blazer and had her hair down. Emily wore a cream colored blazer over a white top and matching pants while her hair was up. They were at the Four Seasons Hotel.

The funny moment comes after both Selena and Emily made headlines when private conversations captured on video at the Golden Globes were analyzed by online sleuths. Selena’s conversation happened with BFF Taylor Swift during a break in the live awards ceremony. Viewers claimed she was shading Kylie Jenner by telling the singer she asked for a photo with the makeup mogul’s boyfriend, Timothee Chalamet, and she told her “no,” but Selena denied the speculation and confirmed she was talking about some of her friends hooking up.

Emily’s moment happened when she was posing for photos with her husband, John Krasinski, on the red carpet of the event. Online sleuths said it looked like the actor told the Oppenheimer star he wanted “a divorce” as he smiled for the cameras, sparking divorce rumors. Shortly after the clip went viral, a source close to the couple denied that their marriage is rocky.

“There are no issues with Emily and John,” the insider told Us Weekly on Thursday. “They are absolutely not talking about divorce. They think the rumors are funny and ridiculous.”

Despite the lip reading drama, both Selena and Emily’s productions, Only Murders in the Building and Oppenheimer, were honored at the AFI Awards after being selected to the Top 10 film and television program lists.
