Jennifer Lawrence says she has learnt to laugh at herself
You don’t have to be a stand-up comedian to do some seriously funny things. Ask ‘Hunger Games’ star Jennifer Lawrence, who admits that she once mistook a woman for Elizabeth Taylor, even though the legendary actress had died years previously. Citing it as one of her “most embarrassing moments” ever, Jennifer says she didn’t share the story publically for a long time — until she was able to laugh at herself on the subject.
“Everybody thinks they’ve witnessed my most embarrassing moments, but there’s these two really humiliating stories… that I’ve never talked about because it’s so genuinely embarrassing. But now I feel like the statute of limitations on humiliation is up, and I’m ready,” said J.Law to ‘The Tonight Show’ host Jimmy Fallon recently. Her quick wit very much in evidence, Jennifer recounted the tale of the time she met filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola at a Parisian restaurant and later realised the zip on her dress had been open the entire time!
“I started walking (over to Coppola) and I noticed I was barefoot, but I was like, ‘Eh, they probably won’t notice’,” the actress recalled. “So I’m barefoot, and I, like, introduced myself, said, ‘Oh, I’m such a huge fan! ‘The Godfather!’ Ahhhh!’ and then went on and introduced myself to the whole table, ‘Hi, I’m Jennifer Lawrence.’ They had no idea who I was. Then, I went back to my table, and (I realised) my entire dress was unzipped, and my thong was out. (And here I was, thinking) the shoes were going to be the problem!”
What’s our verdict on J.Law’s hilarious story? Let’s just say it is safer to zip it on this one!
