We can all agree that Jennifer Lawrence is the coolest and funniest actress in young Hollywood, right? Good.
The recent Golden Globe winner had more folks laughing last night as she took to The Late Show with David Letterman to talk about everything from why she’s so good at acting to what she really meant by the Meryl Streep comment in her acceptance speech.
So was the star actually dissing Meryl, the queen of cinema? Of course not! Upon receiving her Golden Globe, Jennifer looked at it and said, “Oh, what does it say? ‘I Beat Meryl!’” For those who might not know, the quote is from the 90s classic The First Wives Club. So don’t worry guys, Jennifer would never diss a legend. What other fabulous things did Ms. Lawrence have to say for herself?
Well, both she and Dave agreed that she totally should have been in Zero Dark Thirty. “I should’ve been in the background like, ‘Yeah, catch him! Obama!’” Wait, Obama? Don’t worry, Jennifer corrected herself after a second. “Obama?! I mean Osama…Bin Laden! Don’t catch Obama! Sorry. Sorry, Mr. President.”
And finally, why go into acting, Jennifer Lawrence? ”I was just like a pathological liar when I was a kid. I just always lied about everything and I think it was partly I just wanted to one-up somebody.” Well looks like those years of lying paid off! And so has whatever you’ve been doing with your legs!
