Jeremy Piven made his first red carpet appearance after being diagnosed with mercury poisoning and having to pull out of his Broadway show, Speed the Plow.
Naturally, he knew he was going to be questioned about it so he prepared a little sympathy speech for the cameras. Unfortunately for Jeremy, that would be the only speech he gave all night, as Ari Gold and Entourage came up short and brought home zero awards.
Piven explained to reporters, “It was a completely humbling experience. It was like being taken out of a game I could have gone against doctor’s orders, but I didn’t. I’m just grateful to be here.”
Hopefully his friends and fans bought that one, because I’m betting his former cast-mates and producers of Plow aren’t buyin’ it at all.
