Everyone ignored Sean Spicer in Emmys green room except one actor



Apparently most of the celebrities in the Emmys green room didn’t even have mild interest in speaking to Spicey.


Comedian Billy Eichner says that only one person backstage at the award show chatted with Sean Spicer after his memorable self-deprecating bit onstage— the actor who plays Young Sheldon.

“No one would talk to Sean Spicer,” Eichner said of 9-year-old Iain Armitage during an appearance on “Conan.” “The only person who would talk to him, I’m not kidding, is Young Sheldon … from ‘The Big Bang’ spinoff.


“He’s talking to Sean Spicer and no one else would talk to Sean Spicer,” Eichner recalled.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus was not a fan of Sean Spicer’s Emmys cameo


Eichner, who was backstage at the time with the original Sheldon actor Jim Parsons, says Armitage then came over to them to ask a question about the former White House Press Secretary.


“Even Young Sheldon comes up to me and Jim Parsons and says, ‘Is that the real Sean Spicer?’ Like, even Young Sheldon thought it might be Melissa McCarthy, he was very confused,” Eichner joked, earning a laugh. “And then when we said, ‘Yes it’s the real Sean Spicer,’ even Young Sheldon rolled his eyes like, ‘Oh s–t.'”

Celebrities seemed to have a much different attitude after the show, however as many — including host Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Alec Baldwin and Dolly Parton — posed for pictures with him.


Spicer stunned the crowd at the award show when he appeared on stage after Colbert asked if there was anyone who could tell how big the Emmys audience was.

This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period,” Spicer joked in clear reference to his embellishment of Trump’s inauguration crowd. “Both in person and around the world.”


Some people did, however condemn all the love Spicer received after his appearance, including “Veep” actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

“I don’t think it’s cute,” she told Entertainment Weekly last month. “There’s nothing funny about Sean Spicer and what his actions have been and what his behavior has been about.”
