In case you missed the HIGHlarious video, Jerry was approached by the Timber singer while giving a red carpet interview at a David Lynch Foundation event — and he totally rejected her attempt to get a hug!
On Thursday the sitcom star told Extra why he just wasn’t into the hug:
“When you get to be my age and you’ve done a couple things, you have your own reality. In my reality, I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone, say hello. I have to start somewhere.”
But don’t all celebrities kinda have that mutual respect thing going? Where they greet each other as members of the same exclusive club?
Well, yeah… except they have to know the other person is a celeb! Jerry said he had no idea who Kesha was or why she was approaching him, explaining:
“I’m 63. I don’t know every pop star, I don’t know everyone.”
In other words…
Jerry did say that later on in the evening he and Kesha did finally meet and were cool. So, baby steps.
