Willem Dafoe was left red faced in front of his Hollywood peers at the Gotham Independent Film Awards when actress Rosie Perez commented on the size of his manhood while presenting an award.
Dafoe's latest movie Antichrist wasn't nominated for any awards at the New York ceremony, but Perez made sure to mention the actor's full frontal scene when she stepped onstage to present the Best Director accolade on Monday night (30Nov09).
Perez singled out Dafoe in the audience and candidly asked if the size of his manhood in the movie "was the real thing", prompting the embarrassed star to nod - but the outspoken actress' attempt to draw laughs from the shocked crowd fell flat.
A guest tells the New York Daily News, "The audience was absolutely silent. She was completely inappropriate, and everyone looked really uncomfortable."
