Oscars 2019 – US rapper Awkwafina swigs tequila from her clutch bag on red carpet in front of Hollywood celebs


US rapper Awkwafina didn’t let the splendour of the Oscars red carpet stop her from letting her hair down – as she was spotted swigging tequila from a cleverly disguised flask.

The star, real name Nora Lum, downed the hard liquor during a lengthy lull on the way into the historic Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Nora, 29, was spotted on camera holding her suspiciously metallic-looking clutch bag up to her mouth.

She then tipped it back as she tool a sip on the fiery drink inside.

The star of Crazy Rich Asians was chatting to US chat show legend Jimmy Kimmel’s famous bodyguard Guillermo.

She then passed the clutch on to him so he could take a swig.
