As viewers saw during the Sunday telecast, Renner, 44, took the stage with Lopez, 45, to present the Golden Globe for Best Mini-Series/Drama. When it came time for the two to announce the winner, the Boy Next Door actress volunteered to open the envelope, saying, "I have the nails."

The Mission: Impossible 5 action star nonchalantly glanced at her chest, quipping, "You've got the globes, too."

Lopez laughed off the comment, but people watching from home weren't as quick to let him off the hook. One viewer tweeted, "Jeremy Renner just sexually harassed JLo on live TV." Another wrote simply: "Ew, Jeremy Renner."
