Esposito additionally revealed she didn’t even watch the Academy Awards.
“I didn’t watch the Oscars. I don’t know what went on, I don’t care what went on. I commented on something that I thought was funny […] And to find that people are making judgment calls about me or them or the people that the comment was about is really psychotic.”
The actress further confirmed her message wasn’t directed to Gaga, Cooper, or his current girlfriend, Irina Shayk.
“I feel bad for those people who are involved on the other side of the ‘Ha’ because it wasn’t at them."
Cooper and Esposito were married in December 2006 but split four months later in May 2007.
