AceShowbiz - Chrissy Metz has spoken up after reports spread that she called out Alison Brie on the red carpet during the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Before it further causes a misunderstanding between her and "The Disaster Artist" star, Chrissy has taken to Twitter to address her remark.
Denying that she called Alison a "b***h," the "This Is Us" star wrote, "It's terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated!" She additionally claimed, "I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart."

Earlier, it was reported that Chrissy threw shade at Alison when she was being interviewed on the 2019 Golden Globes Facebook Live pre-show. At the end of the interview, she was asked by co-hosts AJ Gibson and Missi Pyle if she's willing to introduce Alison who was standing at the other end of the carpet.
"Do you know a girl named Alison Brie?" AJ asked Chrissy. She responded, "Do I?" AJ said again, "Well, I hear she's at the other end of the carpet." Chrissy exclaimed, "Oh," looking unexcited. When the camera panned to Alison, Chrissy was still talking. "I'm like, 'Do?' " she said, seemingly attempting to explain the tone of her first answer. Apparently not aware that her mic was still on, she was overheard saying, "She's such a b***h."
It's unclear what caused the supposed beef between the two actresses, if there's any. They previously looked friendly when posing together at last year's Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Alison was nominated for Best Actress - Television Series Musical or Comedy at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards for her role on "GLOW", but lost it to reigning winner Rachel Brosnahan. Meanwhile, Chrissy and her show "This Is Us" surprisingly didn't get any recognition at this year's ceremony.
