Carmen Electra & Clifton Collins Jr. Hold Hands, Talk Dating at Golden Globes After Party (Exclusive)
By Rachel McRady
New couple alert? It was hard to cover up the grins on Carmen Electra and Clifton Collins Jr.’s faces on Sunday night at the HBO Golden Globes after party.
The pair held hands and stayed close to one another as they spoke with ET’s Nischelle Turner at the event. But when it came time for them to fess up about the status of their relationship, the two kept it coy.
“I didn’t know [we were a couple] either,” Carmen quipped to Clifton. “Did you know?”
When Turner pointed out that they were holding hands, Clifton joked, “That’s what they told us to do.” He later insisted, “We’re not going to say nothing,” to which Electra replied, “It’s a secret.”
The model and TV personality gave a few more clues, adding, “He invited me to come, so I’m here supporting him. Literally my stylist is in Hawaii. It was so last minute, and I just found a showroom and I’m like, ‘I’m going.’ I just put it all together last minute. That was really sweet that he invited me to come.”
She went on to reveal, “We met a while ago, but we started hanging out recently. Yeah, just kind of down low and then, boom, we’re here.”
Electra was also honored to be at an event celebrating women, adding, “Honestly, the women, just how strong and brave all the women are. Everyone’s wearing black. I mean, it’s finally women are being heard finally. These powerful women are telling their stories that are so deep and intense and you know, it’s a first. They’re really changing the game. And so, that’s another reason I’m really proud to be here, support the women.”
ET has reached out to reps for Clifton Collins Jr. and Francesca Eastwood, who were married in January 2017, for comment.
Stars came out in droves on Sunday to speak about the Time's Up movement and to show their solidarity by wearing black. Watch the clip below for more about the movement!
