Teigen jokes about Tonys

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

CHRISSY Teigen has joked she is Broad­way’s “big­gest star” as she at­tended the Tony Awards on Sun­day.

The 31-year-old model at­tended the glitzy award cer­e­mony with her hus­band John Leg­end – with whom she has 13-month-old daugh­ter Luna – and has ad­mit­ted her ap­pear­ance might have con­fused peo­ple as she isn’t a the­atri­cal ac­tress as she took to Twit­ter to post a se­ries of light-hearted tweets.

Teigen was at the event to sup­port the All of Me hit­maker – who picked up the gong for Best Re­vival for the Au­gust Wil­son play Jit­ney, which he co-pro­duced – but the beauty still couldn’t re­sist jok­ing with her fans.

She wrote: “I am in New York for the Tonys be­cause I am a fa­mous Broad­way ac­tress and it makes sense. “WHY HAS MY SEAT RE­CENTLY BEEN SAT IN!? As one of Broad­way’s big­gest stars on Broad­way’s big­gest nights I am ap­palled (sic).”

And de­spite her jovial tweets, the Lip Sync Bat­tle host couldn’t hide her ex­cite­ment when her 38-year-old hus­band picked up his Tony, giv­ing him the fa­mous GOT – Grammy, Oscar, Tony – ac­co­lade.

Chrissy tweeted: “John won a Tony!!! He has a GOT! (sic)”

Leg­end picked up his first Oscar in 2015 when his track Glory won best orig­i­nal song af­ter he penned it for the movie Selma. As for Grammy awards, Leg­end has picked up 10 of the tro­phies since his first win back in 2006. – Bang Show­biz
