Jennifer Lawrence is no stranger to anyone these days — among other things, the actress is known for her performances in Winter’s Bone and The Hunger Games, as well as her Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook. In addition to her remarkable performances, the actress is also known for her affable personality, wit, and grounded charm — the latter certainly a large factor for her legions of fans. Read on as we break down some of the funniest things JLaw has said and done.
1. Leave the twerking to Miley. When asked about her skills on the dancefloor, Lawrence downplayed her moves — to put it mildly.
“I’m a horrible dancer! I’m like a dad at prom. I look like Gumby getting electrocuted.”
2. It sounds like a riddle, but it’s not. When a reporter asked Lawrence what she had in common with her Hunger Games character, Katniss Everdeen, you could practically hear the world guffaw. Her response?
“We look alike.”
3. After her win for Best Actress in Silver Linings Playbook, Lawrence was doing a post-Oscars interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos when Jack Nicholson stopped by to pay her a compliment. Nicholson praised Lawrence and then began moving on, but not before saying, “You look like an old girlfriend of mine.” Lawrence responded with:
“Oh really? Do I look like a new girlfriend?”
4. Like many, JLaw’s got a few celebrity crushes of her own, and is never one to not freak out when meeting them. Take her encounter with John Stamos, aka Uncle Jesse, for example: Both Lawrence and Stamos were at a party, and, well, the rest is history.
“I turned into a perverted guy. I was, like, following him in a room staring at his ass. I lost my mind,” Lawrence said. “I didn’t want to meet him, because it’s not good when I meet people who I really idolize. I was avoiding him, and then my friends brought him over because my friends are jerks, and I just started freaking out and he asked me if I was on mushrooms. I was like, ‘No. I’m dead sober. This is just … me.’”
