Appearing on Ellen's talk show Monday, the "GLOW" star opened up about her cringeworthy first interaction with DeGeneres -- after the host noted that they used to work out at the same gym.
"I'm so glad that you remember that we met before even though I feel like it was a little embarrassing for me because the nature of our meeting," said Brie. "I was rushing into the gym and I had been receiving some sort of prank texts that morning. And, you know, I've known our trainer Jason for a while, so I share things with him all the time."
"And I came in bursting like, 'Everybody, you gotta see what I've been receiving on my phone!' And as I go to show him, there you are, just passing by, you're sort of just lunging by," she continued. "And you were like, 'What's going on?' And I whipped around—I think before I realized it was you—I was like, 'Look at this!' And, you know, it was a photo of a man's nether-regions."
"Right," deadpanned Ellen.
"Nobody I knew, a stranger," Brie clarified. "I had been getting those texts all morning and I really, really kind of put it in your face and I apologize."
