Cuba Gooding Jr. gets 'juiced up' at the Footwear News Achievement Awards


Cuba Gooding Jr. made good use of an open bar at the annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York on Tuesday.
The 48-year-old put on a rather inebriated display struggling his way through a speech and making a play a grab - literally - for award winner Rihanna. 

'He was hitting up the bar as soon as he did the red carpet and, with some liquid courage under his belt, made a beeline for Rihanna.'
Photographers captured the moment the actor latched on to the pop star as she made her way into the awards.



A party insider tells the DailyMail.com that the Oscar winner was in fine form from the moment the event kicked off.
The source said: 'He played OJ on TV, but he really was juiced.

'He was hitting up the bar as soon as he did the red carpet and, with some liquid courage under his belt, made a beeline for Rihanna.'
Photographers captured the moment the actor latched on to the pop star as she made her way into the awards.
Despite the singer obviously pulling away, the determined actor did his best to hold on.
Inside the awards Cuba continued to make use of the open bar, the source said.
'He's a friend of John Varvavtos and was there to present him with an award, and when got on the stage, the first thing he did was put a drink down.

He told the Footwear News event: 'I think we all owe a debt of gratitude for this amazing meal they put together tonight. Because nothing says I love you like f**king sugar. F***king boxed lunch. 
'I'm drunk now, m****rf***ers, so deal with it. I thought the BET Awards were cheap.
'Did they want me to show them the money, what the f**k?'

Finally realizing he was meant to be presenting the shoe designer with the important Social Impact Award, The People Vs. O.J. Simpson star tried to get back on course.
Stumbling over his words, he concluded: 'On the red carpet - and I'll finish with this and bring him up - everybody said, ''Once you go John Varvatos, you never go back.'' You have black in you! I knew that!'
Cuba is known for his love of a drink or two, with the star partying hard earlier this year stripping off his shirt, grinding on a woman before dropping her and almost eating a man's phone while partying in Miami.
