The 'Glee' alum and Este Haim bare it all at the Ambies, the Podcast Academy's inaugural Awards for Excellence in Audio as the duo present an award at the event.

AceShowbiz - HAIM star Este Haim and Darren Criss stole the show at the Podcast Academy's inaugural Awards for Excellence in Audio on Monday night (17May21) by presenting a prize naked.

The two pals, who will co-host new podcast series "That Thing I Do" this summer (21), bared all from the waist up and introduced themselves as "Adam and Eve" to hand out the Best Society & Culture Podcast prize at the Ambies.

"We actually were the first society ever," Criss joked. "All the culture stemmed from us, which is why we finally decided to have a podcast of our own. We actually have the very first podcast of all time. Because we've known each other since the dawn of time."

"We also decided that we would do this presentation just to be clearly a shoo-in for next year's award."

Haim, who used her hair as a cover-up, added, "I just wanted to be on camera... I'm not doing this for my health."
