During the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the This Is Us actress tweeted: "It's terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated! I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart."
Her tweet comes after she seemed to be heard bad-mouthing the GLOW on a hot mic. It all went down during an interview with AJ Gibson and Missi Pyle, co-hosts of the 2019 Golden Globes Facebook Live pre-show. After dishing on Season 3 of This Is Us, the subject turned to the stars in attendance which included Brie, who had just arrived.
"Do you know a girl named Alison Brie?" Gibson asked Metz. "Well, I hear she's gonna be at the end of the carpet."
"Oh," Metz responded. The camera then cut away to an aerial shot of the red carpet. Then, it seems Metz can be heard saying under her breath, "She's such a bitch."
Was she joking or was this an off-the-cuff moment caught on camera? Metz has yet to comment, but Brie did react when questioned during the ceremony by Vanity Fair reporter Nicole Sperling.
"But why?" Brie asked of Metz's remark. "I know her. I saw her on the carpet and I told her how beautiful she looked."
Watch the moment below.
