Rosie Perez was ‘pissed’ with Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes during the Oscars


Rosie Perez is “pissed off” by Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes.

On Thursday, the ‘Flight Attendant’ star appeared on ‘The Daily Show with Trevor Noah’ and revealed she was annoyed with her ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ co-stars at the Oscars last month.

“You were one of my favorite Oscar moments, that ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ cast reunion scene, it was cool to see on stage.” Noah started.

But Perez didn’t have it.

“I was mad at them! I just told them, “I’ve got a train,” she explained, referring to her fiery red Christian Siriano dress. “’Just pick it up…inflate it, let it go and let me out.’ They said, ‘Okay.’ And then I see on the reading that they held it all the time, cracking.

And the reason why?

“They were stoned! she exclaimed with a smile.

It seems their onstage joke about being stoned wasn’t “little” for the broadcast.

Harrelson, a longtime supporter of cannabis legalization, had regretted, “I wish I hadn’t done that bong-rip in the car,” while Snipes added, “I wish I hadn’t been riding with you .

“I’m the only sober here, some things haven’t changed in 30 years,” Perez said slightly exasperated.

The trio had reunited – in honor of the basketball comedy’s 30th anniversary – to present the Oscar for Cinematography.

It was the first time in 28 years that the 57-year-old actress had been invited back to the Oscars since her 1994 nomination for her supporting role in ‘Fearless’.

The classic 1992 film is set to be rebooted with a script from “blackish” creator Kenya Barris. Sinqua Walls and Jack Harlow have been signed to star in the remake.
