Emmys Nominee Josh O'Connor Reveals the Star-Studded Secret Game He Plays at Awards Shows

The Crown's Josh O'Connor has his very own secret game he's planning on playing at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards — and he's already gotten help from a famous star!

The actor spoke to E! at Sunday's red carpet before the 2021 Emmy Awards and told host Karamo Brown how he meets famous stars and passes the time at industry award shows.

"There is a game I play, sometimes at these events, which is who can play Rock Paper Scissors with the most famous person in the room," O'Connor, 31, revealed. "I once lost to a friend who managed to play Rock Paper Scissors with Beyoncé."

When Brown asked if O'Connor had any luck in getting a famous face to play with him, he admitted, "I think I did Salma Hayek, which is pretty good."
