The first, the insider shared, was a “direct result of almost being elbowed in the face” when she and her fellow female co-stars were shuffled to the back of the stage as several male cast members gave acceptance speeches. kept.
And, the source added, that wasn’t the only incident that riled the actress as she and her fellow White Lotus stars took the stage to accept the award for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series.
The insider confirmed speculation on social media that Aubrey’s flaring mood was further exacerbated when her co-star Jon Gries warned her that her “boobs were hanging out of her risqué Michael Kors dress.”
Aubrey Plaza sparked a storm of speculation when she was seen visibly annoyed when she and her fellow White Lotus players won a SAG Award on Sunday night.
The 38-year-old actress was initially seen smiling as the cast took to the stage to accept the award for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series, but her facial expression soon changed.
A source close to the star revealed to DailyMail.com that her “exasperated” facial expression was the result of two incidents on stage – first when her co-star warned her “tits were hanging out”
“A number of different things were going on at the time,” the insider told DailyMail.com. “At first she was told that her breasts were hanging out, which would make any woman uncomfortable.
“Then she almost got an elbow in the face and her reaction was a direct result of that.”
Aubrey’s visibly “exasperated” expression on stage at the awards sparked a firestorm of social media reactions, with many viewers noticing her first flash of anger after Jon – who plays the husband of Jennifer Coolidge’s character on the show – leaned over to to whisper. something in her ear.
The actress looked momentarily panicked before glancing at her outfit and frantically adjusting the sequined “straps” that criss-crossed her chest.
Then, as she was adjusting her dress, White Lotus actor F. Murray Abraham gave a speech to the crowd, in which he sent out a “prayer to the earthquake victims in Syria and Turkey and a prayer for peace to Ukraine and Russia’. ‘
When the crowd applauded, he shouted “Union Forever!” And instead of clapping along with the cast, Aubrey was seen softly uttering the word “Jesus Christ.”
Several viewers suggested that her outburst may have been directly related to Abraham’s speech – what many didn’t seem to see, however, was that she was nearly punched in the face by the elbow of one of her co-stars when they started embracing on-stage .

It is then that she is seen leaning back and muttering “Jesus Christ” under her breath.
That, the DailyMail.com source points out, was what prompted her irritated response.
“Aubrey is extremely expressive and she’s also very sarcastic,” the source added, insisting her comments had nothing to do with the cast or the show, saying, “She’s very proud of her work on White Lotus.” ‘
Arguably matters weren’t helped by the fact that both Aubrey and her co-star Jennifer, 61, were stuck at the back of the cast and crew group who gathered on stage to collect the award – despite the fact that both women received high praise for their performance on the hit HBO show.
When the speeches ended, Aubrey was one of the first to leave the stage and viewers were quick to mention her seemingly strange behavior in a series of tweets.

Another then pointed out that the actress “even left the stage quickly and alone rather than stay with the cast,” while a third chimed in: “She looked like she loved being up there and immediately ran offstage as everyone in the cast congratulated and hugged each other.”
Fortunately, Aubrey’s frown turned on its head after the show when she was pictured in good spirits posing for photos with various members of the cast.
