Was Aubrey Plaza Drunk When Crashing Will Ferrell's MTV Movie Awards Speech? [Video]
Aubrey Plaza appeared to try a marketing stunt for her new movie, but she was thrown off the Sony Pictures lot where the MTV Movie Awards was being held.
In a bizarre skit at the MTV Movie Awards in Culver City, California, on Sunday (April 14, 2013), Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza 'did a Kanye West' and rushed the stage in the middle of Will Ferrell's acceptance speech for his Comedic Genius Golden Popcorn awards. The 28-year-old actress jumped on-stage barefooted, with a drink in her hand and grabbed the statue. "What's happening?" Ferrell, 45, asked, "Are you okay?" he added.
Plaza didn't say a word throughout the weird exchange (she had the name of her new movie scrawled across her chest), giving up the fight and returning to her front run seat. The quick thinking Ferrell joked that things went down "just like during rehearsals." Speaking backstage, the Anchorman star told US Weekly, "I think she wanted to tell me something important, but there was no message.It was just a lot of hot liquor breath. And, then, and a little bit of sweat. And then she ran away. But the ship sailed on." Aubrey is yet to comment on the incident, though tweeted, "thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned!"
Twitter erupted with a mixture of surprise and mockery. One user tweeted, "I'm going to take the fact that she spilled her drink everywhere and that this wasn't funny as a clue it wasn't planned," while another said, "I think Aubrey Plaza was wasted pants tonight." According to Deadline.com, Plaza was kicked off the Sony Pictures lot where the show was being held.
Aubrey Plaza will next star in comedy 'The To Do List' with Bill Hader. Ferrell is currently working on Anchorman 2, with Steve Carell and Paul Rudd.
