Funny / Jennifer Lawrence

    Jennifer: Yes, he did.
    • She also said she's been told only by her boyfriends that she aggressively slips back into a Kentucky accent when she's angry.
    • There's also a moment of Digging Yourself Deeper where they joke that she's not afraid to seem like she's not perfect. Jennifer says she doesn't have a choice, and Stephen implies it's because her publicist isn't doing a good enough job. He changes the subject to her parents being backstage, Jennifer explaining that their flight was delayed - and then hurriedly saying she would have brought them anyway.
      Stephen: We've been here only forty-five seconds and I feel I've done nothing but attack you.
      Jennifer: I know, right. My whole life is destroyed. I've been dropped by my publicist, my parents are gonna be gone by the time I get backstage.

  • On The Graham Norton Show in December 2015, she cheerfully describes her Epic Fail when she tried to be an Abercrombie & Fitch model.

And she and the rest of the male cast members had a habit of shooting each other with BB guns on set - so one day James McAvoy burst in on her while she was peeing to shoot her.
  • During an interview promoting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, she says she enjoyed eating a lot of sausages in Berlin - realised what she's just said and spends the rest of the interview Corpsing over her own comment.
  • One day she and a friend were trailed by paparazzi, and the friend was upset at seeing photos of herself. So Jennifer cheered her up by googling "Jennifer Lawrence ugly" to put things in perspective.

Jennifer - who had a lot of champagne at this point - was convinced that this was Elizabeth Taylor. She didn't know that Liz had been dead for quite some time.
  • Her appearance on the Oscar edition of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, (a talk show parody where the interviewer and the guest both deliberately say inappropriate things):

    Jennifer: Yeah, isn't that your life story?
