The Tweets About Julia Butters' Turkey Sandwich In Her 2020 Oscars Purse Are Too Good
On Sunday, Feb. 9, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood's Julia Butters made her Oscars debut one to remember as she walked the red carpet in a bright pink Christian Siriano creation. While the bubblegum pink number — which featured puffed sleeves, ruffles, and draped layers — was a head-turner, an unexpected accessory stole the spotlight. The 10-year-old decided to prepare for the long night by bringing a snack to the event, and the tweets about Julia Butters' turkey sandwich in her 2020 Oscars purse show that fans are so here for it.
Butters, who was lauded for her role as Trudi Fraser in the Quentin Tarantino film, was prepared for every situation when she revealed she'd brought a bite to eat while walking the red carpet in her gorgeous pink look, which she paired with an asymmetrical bow necklace by Lark & Berry and a matching hot pink clutch. Because the Academy reportedly does not serve dinner at the Oscars, Butters came prepared with a back-up plan, which she revealed to LA Times journalist Amy Kaufman and other news outlets while posing ahead of the show.
In what was probably the most viral moment of the Oscars red carpet, the 10-year-old opened her $2,500 crystal-studded pink Mazook purse to reveal she'd stored a turkey sandwich inside. Her reasoning? The actress said she doesn't "like some of the food here," and fans on Twitter are loving the hilariously relatable moment. Who knew a turkey sandwich was the ultimate red carpet accessory?
The actress also showed her snack to EW’s editor-in-chief JD Heyman and PeopleTV anchor Lola Ogunnaike, taking a bite out of the sandwich and saying, "It’s the Oscars — there can’t be any regrets. There’s no going back."
While Butters isn't nominated for any categories herself, it'll be an exciting night for the cast of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, as the film is up for some major accolades. The Quentin Tarantino movie's 10 nominations include Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor. Luckily, it looks like the 10-year-old is well-prepared for the long night.
