Imagine you’re at the Golden Globes and you’re water supply runs out. WDYD? Sit around and wait for someone to save the day? Or do you ask around for replacments?
That’s what Reese Witherspoon did at Sunday’s event when her and Jennifer Aniston found themselves parched halfway through the event.
It’s anyone guess as to why they’re were drinking water at the glitzy awards show, but hey-ho. They eventually hit the hard stuff, according to Jen’s Instagram.
Witherspoon went out of her way to ask Beyoncé for a glass. Aniston said: “Reese!? This is one of the many reasons I love you,” she wrote over a selfie of them. “We ran out of water at our table. So naturally, she asked Jay Z and Beyoncé for a glass of their champagne.” Aniston then shared an Instagram Story of herself drinking it and tagged Beyoncé’s account.
Beyonce had previously made news for her appearance at the Golden Globes when it was recognised that she remained seated during Joaquin Phoenix’s standing ovation.
One Twitter user wrote: “Apparently there was some hoop-la over Beyoncé not standing during the ovation for Joaquin Phoenix at the
#GoldenGlobes…did you see my queen’s dress?!? She would’ve stolen the moment! Be grateful of her.”
Another argued: “Just putting it out there. MAYBE Beyoncé didn’t stand during Joaquin Phoenix’s standing ovation because her dress was massive & would have been a pain to get out of her chair with and then gather it to sit down again. Just a thought. Maybe it wasn’t a statement.”
A third wrote: “Joaquin Phoenix just did a speech about global warming and how celebrities should start doing changes themselves personally instead of putting the responsibility in other people and then clean their hands. But somehow Beyonce not giving him a standing ovation is more important…”
Beyoncé herself was nominated for a Golden Globe last night; her power ballad “Spirit,” which she wrote for 2019’s The Lion King remake, was nominated for Best Original Song – Motion Picture.
However, Elton John and longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin, who composed a new track for John’s biopic, Rocketman, ultimately bagged the prize. There’s always next year!
