Pharrell's reaction to the red carpet blunder left us in tears.
Anything can happen when you’re on the red carpet, but if the blunder’s big enough, Twitter will never let you forget it. Red carpet host Jenna Bush Hager learned that pretty quickly during her interview with Pharrell about his nomination for his work with film Hidden Figures when she mistakenly referred to the movie as “Hidden Fences.”
“So, you’re nominated for Hidden Fences,” Bush began during her red carpet interview with the music producer, she continued by asking if he’d be out drinking to celebrate the nomination but Pharrell didn’t seem too interested after Bush’s flub. The music producer’s reaction left us in tears and, of course, “Hidden Fences” quickly began to trend everywhere.
I can't believe I haven't seen #hiddenfences yet!! But you know, I still need to see Boo! A Madea Moonlight, so…I'll get to it.— Carl (@carleswan) January 9, 2017
Moral of the story, make sure you get the name of the movie right when interviewing one of its stars. RIP, Jenna Bushes mentions.
