John Cena, the famous actor, made a surprise appearance at the 2024 Oscars without any clothes on. He was selected to present the Best Costume award to the film “Poor Things.” The host, Jimmy Kimmel, had previously mentioned a man who had streaked across the stage at the 46th Academy Awards in 1974.

Cena’s Unexpected Streak at the 2024 Academy Awards

Cena appeared suddenly from backstage and contradicted Jimmy Kimmel’s remarks. “I have changed my mind. I no longer want to do that. You should be ashamed for suggesting such an absurd idea,” Cena said. He then walked onto the stage completely naked, using only an envelope with the winner’s name to cover his private parts.

The Best Costume Nominations and Award Presentation

The Best Costume nominations included films like “Barbie,” “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Napoleon,” “Oppenheimer,” and “Poor Things.” The 96th Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday, March 10, 2024, local time or Monday, March 11, 2024.

Cena appeared on stage completely naked, wearing only a pair of sandals and using an envelope to cover his private parts in the Academy Awards 2024 event broadcast on the ABC News YouTube channel.

Cena’s Hilarious Response to Kimmel’s Remarks

Cena joked that he actually did not want to do something like that, so he carefully walked across the stage while holding the card containing the names of the Oscar nominees.

“Clothes…, they are very important,” Cena said, accompanied by laughter from the audience.

Host Jimmy Kimmel then helped Cena by putting on an emergency robe made from curtains before presenting the award for Best Costume Design to costume designer for the film “Poor Things,” Holly Waddington.

The Elegant Event of the 2024 Oscars

“This is an elegant event! You should feel ashamed now for suggesting such a classless idea!” Cena said to Kimmel and the film industry professionals attending the award ceremony.

CBS News reported that while preparing to introduce the 2024 Academy Award nominations for Best Costume Design, Kimmel recalled the famous incident in the show 50 years ago when actor David Niven was surprised by a streaker running across the stage.

“Can you imagine if a naked man ran across the stage today?” Kimmel said as Cena peeked from behind the wall.

“I have changed my mind. I don’t want to do anything worse,” Cena whispered to the late-night talk show host as they pretended to argue about the previous arrangement.

“A man’s body is not a joke,” he said.
