Maria told Conan O’Brien that she had a run-in with the Oscar winner during the NBA finals in 2010, while cheering on her home team, the Boston Celtics.
“I was at the Lakers game, I think it was Game 6 in Los Angeles,” Menounos explained. “Dane Cook and I were sitting courtside. We had made it our job to go to all of these games and rally for our team. All of a sudden, we’re sitting courtside, I’m wearing my Celtics gear, screaming and going crazy, and I get booted. These guys come and pull us out of courtside. I’m like, ‘What is going on?’”
She continued, “We end up in the Chairman’s Lounge at halftime, and I’m hiding in this hallway, and all of a sudden Jack Nicholson comes out of the bathroom. He goes, ‘I see they moved your seat (imitates Nicholson laugh).’ He got me kicked out. I heard later that he called Jerry Buss and had me removed.”
Jack Nicholson has a lot of pull with the L.A. Lakers… something "Extra's" Maria Menounos learned the hard way.
