Best Supporting Actress winner Yuh-jung Youn didn’t party after the Academy Awards, but she did receive a special gift from Get Out and Us director Jordan Peele.
“I didn’t go party,” the Minari actress told CBS This Morning. “I was exhausted after that and we came home. There was very honor, I think, he’s a very famous comedian who became a director. What’s his lat name? Jordan Peele. He sent me the bottle of champagne, Dom Pérignon, and the card said, ‘I see you.’ That was very sweet of him to do that.”
The 73-year-old said that her fan is a big fan of Peele, which makes the gift all the more special. “My son was, ‘Wow!’ This is honor because my son likes him. He’s huge fan of him.”
