A bit of an unexpected scene unfolded last night at The Golden Globes during the award for Best Actress in a Television Series (Musical or Comedy).
During the nominee announcements, the camera panned to Amy Poehler, who was sitting on Bono’s lap getting her shoulders rubbed by him. First, it seems innocent enough, as it should considering Bono is married and Amy is the girlfriend of comedy actor, Nick Kroll.
Then, as Amy was announced the winner, she decided to heat things up in celebration.
While Bono’s wedding ring was clearly showing in the shot when he was rubbing Amy’s shoulders, it wasn’t really cause for alarm. But it looks like Amy was definitely the aggressor when she turned around to make out with Bono rather than just getting up to accept her award.
Nick Kroll, needless to say, was less than thrilled. Would anyone want to see their girlfriend make out with a celebrity in front of millions of people on national television? I think not.
Nick responded by sending out a “warning” tweet to Bono, to “watch his back.”
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think they crossed a line, or was it just for show, similar to two actors making out on screen, but are platonic in real life?
Did they literally just both cheat on their significant others on national TV?
