All award show jitters aside, Emma Stone is taking the internet by storm – but not for the reason some might think. Recently, a clip from the Oscars went viral, with eagle-eyed viewers convinced Stone muttered a rather harsh insult towards host Jimmy Kimmel. The alleged offense? A joke Kimmel made about Stone’s new film, “Poor Things.”

After the film’s montage played during the ceremony, Kimmel quipped, “Those were all the parts of Poor Things we’re allowed to show on TV,” referencing the film’s potentially risque content. Stone’s on-camera reaction – a furrowed brow and a muttered exchange with her husband – fueled speculation that she called Kimmel a rather colorful name.

But in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Stone herself cleared the air. Completely unaware of the online frenzy, she laughed, “I didn’t call him a p—k! I wasn’t upset with him at all. I’ll have to look that up.” Stone went on to describe herself as “near-unoffendable,” especially when it comes to friends and colleagues like Kimmel.

This isn’t the first time Stone and Kimmel have playfully jabbed at each other. Fans of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” will remember their past on-air banter, often lighthearted and teasing. It seems the internet, ever the rumor mill, got a little carried away this time.

So, there you have it. The mystery of the muttered Oscars moment is solved. In true Emma Stone fashion, the whole thing seems to be a misunderstanding, leaving us with a reminder to take internet rumors with a grain of salt, and perhaps a chuckle at Hollywood’s playful (and sometimes misinterpreted) camaraderie.
