Kathy Ireland: I Was NOT Drunk at Oscars

March 9, 2010 (10:08 am) GMT
The actress denies she was drunk when interviewing Zac Efron, Gabourey Sidibe and other stars at the Academy Awards ceremony.

Model-turned-actress has hit back at reports she was drunk at Sunday's March 7 Oscars, insisting she was just overjoyed and "grateful" to be invited. The beauty drew comments from Internet critics and bloggers as she interviewed stars including and during a pre-Oscars special on U.S. TV, with many viewers questioning her sobriety.

But the mum-of-three has assured fans her strange behavior was simply due to the fact she was delighted to be on the red carpet. In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, Ireland writes: "(I) cannot please everyone... and frankly I wouldn't ever want to. Don't feel embarrassed for me. Had a blast and it was so much FUN!"

"No meds (medication) or alcohol... just J.O.Y.! Never use drugs and that as a Mom is not a cool or funny suggestion (sic)... Some say I looked pregnant. LOL (laugh out loud)! Not true... others say I was drinking... Just excited to be involved. Grateful."
