VIDEO: John Cena appears nude on stage to present Oscar award

Actor and professional wrestler John Cena added a touch of humor to the prestigious Oscar event by humorously pretending to bare it all while presenting the award for best costume design.

The WWE wrestler-turned-actor embraced the playful stunt, carrying an oversized winner’s envelope strategically covering his private parts.

The comedic bit was set up by host Jimmy Kimmel, who referenced a streaker at the 1974 Academy Awards.

Cena, however, expressed reservations about the “streaker bit,” emphasising the event’s elegance.

Despite the audience reaction, Cena highlighted the importance of costumes before announcing Holly Waddington as the best costume design winner for “Poor Things.”

To ensure there were no FCC violations, a source revealed that Cena was covered in the groin and butt crack areas, with the envelope securely attached to him.

Kimmel, playing along, later wrapped Cena in a curtain to provide a bit more modesty.

While the cheeky act delighted the audience, it was all in good fun, adding a memorable and unexpected twist to the Oscars telecast.

From the corner of the stage, Cena peeked his head out and told Kimmel he didn’t want to “do the streaker bit anymore.”

“It’s an elegant event. Honestly, you should feel ashamed right now for suggesting such a tasteless idea,” Cena complained. “The male body is not a joke!”

Kimmel argued that Cena, who is also a famed WWE wrestler, wrestles in the nude. “Dude, I don’t wrestle naked,” Cena said. “I wrestle in jorts!”

“Jorts are worse than naked!” Kimmel said as the audience laughed.

At this point, Cena – carrying an oversized winner’s envelope over his private parts – walked to the center of the stage as the audience’s jaws dropped to the floor.

“Costumes, they are so important. Maybe the most important thing there is,” he said while presenting the award.

The Academy Awards, commonly and now officially known as the Oscars are awards for artistic and technical merit for the film industry.

They are presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) in the United States, in recognition of excellence in cinematic achievements as assessed by the Academy’s voting membership.
