Oscars Producers Unhappy Over John Cena’s Naked Moment

Jimmy Kimmel John Cena Oscars

John Cena let it all hang out at the Oscars but it seems producers for the awards show weren’t so keen to see so much of the WWE icon.

John Cena stole the show at the Oscars as he presented the award for Best Costume Design in his birthday suit. The moment came as a result of a gag that saw host Jimmy Kimmel want to recreate a famous Oscars moment when a streaker took to the stage but stage fright got the better of Cena and he refused before having to present his award with just the famous envelope preserving his modesty.

Oscars Producers Fought Against John Cena’s Naked Moment

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel revealed producers for the show were very reluctant about Cena’s special moment:

Of all the times I’ve hosted the Oscars or the Emmys or anything, no comedy bit has ever received more scrutiny than this. There were meetings and side meetings, emails and texts and phone calls and people sweating. Somebody was crying.

Then, once they realised we weren’t going to take no for an answer, there were intense discussions about the size of the envelope, whether we needed to Velcro it to John’s body, to fill his crack or have socks, various testicalia was discussed […] They kept demanding that we make the envelope bigger. Very rarely does an idea literally push the envelope, and this one did.

Photos have revealed what John Cena was actually wearing when he took to the Oscars stage as he wasn’t as naked as it might have seemed.
