John Cena gives out costume design Oscar in his ‘birthday suit’

John Cena made quite the statement at the Oscars ceremony on Sunday. The actor took to the stage to present the award for Best Costume Design, but with a hilarious twist – he appeared to be completely naked.

Host Jimmy Kimmel set the stage for Cena’s unconventional entrance by joking about an infamous streaker incident from the 1974 Academy Awards. Cena, however, expressed discomfort with the idea, insisting that the male body should not be treated as a joke.

Despite his protestations, Cena, known for his wrestling career, humorously defended his wrestling attire – jorts – claiming they were better than being naked. As Cena made his way to the center of the stage, he strategically held an oversized winner’s envelope to preserve his modesty.

John Cena’s Unconventional Oscars Entrance

While Cena’s appearance suggested he was nude, it was later revealed that he was covered in key areas and the envelope was attached to him for safety. The precaution was taken to ensure compliance with FCC regulations.

Ultimately, Cena and Kimmel announced Holly Waddington as the winner of Best Costume Design for “Poor Things.” Perhaps Waddington can now design something suitable for Cena to wear to the afterparty.

Cena’s Humorous Response to Streaker Joke

Host Jimmy Kimmel set the stage for Cena’s entrance by joking about the possibility of a streaker running across the stage during the 2024 ceremony. However, Cena, appearing shirtless, humorously declined to participate in the bit, citing the event’s elegance and his discomfort with the joke.

Despite his initial reluctance, Cena eventually appeared on stage with nothing but a large envelope covering his private parts, eliciting laughter from the audience. He later reappeared wearing a golden toga after a quick cut.

Cena’s connection to the Oscars extended beyond his stage appearance, as he also had a cameo in the nominated film “Barbie.” Despite initial advice from his agency to avoid the role, Cena chose to embrace every opportunity, believing that good work leads to more opportunities.
