The ‘naked’ truth about John Cena.

Contrary to appearances, John Cena was not actually naked. This clarification comes from the actor’s backstage team following a stunt at this year’s Oscars, the most prestigious awards in the global film industry, which took place on March 10th, 2024. The renowned actor and wrestler appeared on stage to present an award and seemed to be unclothed. The act elicited a variety of responses; while some commended Cena, others criticized him on social media for promoting nudity at a global event.

The stunt, which was intended to pay tribute to one of the most bizarre incidents in Academy Awards history, involved a nod to the 1974 ceremony where a naked man streaked across the stage. This prompted Kimmel to playfully tease the audience with the prospect of witnessing a similar spectacle.

‘Can you imagine if a nude man ran across the stage today?’, Kimmel asked the audience. All the attendees waited with bated breath not knowing what the host was up to. Then suddenly John Cena popped his head from one side of the stage.

‘I changed my mind. I don’t want to do streaker bit.’ Cena said to Kimmel. The two engaged briefly before Cena slowly limped to the center of the stage saying ‘the male body is not a joke’.

The action immediately elicited varied responses from both the attendees and the online audience. Some detractors went online to denounce the actor, labeling the act a ‘humiliation ritual,’ while others praised his courage.

Two things emerged after the stunt. Unlike the 1974 surprise moment, this year’s ‘nude’ stunt was pre-planned, at least according to Cena’s back team. Secondly, his move was aimed at promoting what is known as a ‘modesty garment’ that is mostly used in the film industry where actors use to cover their private parts in scenes that require them to appear as if they are naked.
