A day after slipping in a boob joke at the Golden Globes, Jeremy Renner is feeling the heat.
The 44-year-old actor took the stage Sunday with American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, who turned heads on the red carpet in a low-cut Zuhair Murad gown, to present two awards. But before they revealed the winner for Best Actor in a TV, Mini-series or Movie, Renner snuck in a joke about J.Lo’s chest that had the Internet in a tizzy.
To refresh your memory, here’s how the awkward onstage exchange went down.
The 45-year-old J.Lo laughed it off onstage like a pro, but Twitter users had other thoughts.

“Jeremy Renner is a boob-seeking robot.” —Twitter #goldenglobes— Ryan Shattuck (@ryanmer) January 12, 2015
After the ceremony, J.Lo laughed off the GIF-worthy moment, telling E! Online, “That was really funny. He’s a very funny man. It even made me a little hot.”
Renner, meanwhile, had a more pointed response to the backlash to his unplanned “globes” remark.
Are you siding with Renner, or did you think the unplanned moment was inappropriate? We want to hear your thoughts!
