It’s like Chekhov always said: Never make a joke about giving pizza to celebrities in the first act if you’re not going to actually give the celebrities pizza in the third act.
Ellen DeGeneres’s original joke about ordering pizza to the Hollywood & Highland Center was an enjoyably silly bit of Oscars fluff – that she actually followed through with it was the stuff of genius.
Below, a list of the stars who threw aside their fear of tomato sauce to nosh on Ellen’s pizza (and the ones who refrained):
Julia Roberts: Took a slice.
Meryl Streep: Took two slices, one for herself and one for her husband.
Brad Pitt: Handed out plates, then took a slice.
Dax Shepard: Took a slice.
