If there's one thing we didn't expect alongside our cornflakes and orange juice on this very normal Thursday morning , it was beef between Jack Whitehall and proper actor person Sylvester Stallone.
Beef with a side order of fluffy roast potatoes, honey roasted carrots and parsnip mash smothered in proper gravy. It was THAT BEEFY.
So cast your mind back to The Oscars 2016, and you might remember that Sly Stallone lost out on the Best Supporting Actor gong for Creed to Mark Rylance, and rather than hiding his upset, he was visibly gutted.
And so when Whitehall was later asked what he was, er, actually doing at the Academy Awards ceremony, he told The Mirror he was there for Sly.
"I had to console him [Sylvester] about missing out on his Oscar, telling him there was always next year," he joked.
"Or maybe if he did Creed 2 he might get a nod. I think it reassured him. Also, because he knew I was English, I had to tell him who Mark Rylance was.
"I talked him through all of Mark's performances at the Globe theatre. Good old Sly, I loved him in Creed. And I love Mark Rylance, so I had to remain pretty neutral about it."
This is where when it gets a bit awkward, because Sylvester Stallone hit back on Twitter *and* Instagram, claiming he doesn't actually have a clue who Jack is. Lolz.
He wrote: "I NEVER met this young man Pity it has to be under these circumstances [sic]", before adding:
"I was very proud of my nomination, worked hard for it , so why would anybody create insulting lies that only distort wonderful memories. Why do it?"
Anyone wanna hold this awkward turtle?
Jack has since spoken out to consolidate his story and insist he very much did console Sly, telling the Daily Mail: "It's sad Sly doesn't remember meeting me. Clearly I made very little impression. The same thing happened to me with Eamonn Holmes at the TV Choice Awards."
British humour, eh?
BUT LOOK AT THESE FIRST:
