Jennifer Lawrence Tells Leno Of Her Love For Honey Boo Boo, Deep-Fried Cheese Steak, Old Strippers

|

When we first saw an excerpt of Jennifer Lawrence on The Tonight Show, it was all about her “Fat Witch” Halloween costume, and we loved it. But then we saw the whole thing and realized that is the mere tip of the iceberg of the awesomeness that was this interview. We already knew the Catching Fire star loves eating Cheetos with her great boyfriend Nicholas Hoult and doesn’t care that she’s not twig-skinny like most Hollywood stars, but here are new things we learned about the endearingly normal, self-deprecating star as she promoted the Silver Linings Playbook last night.

  • She got into a car wreck a couple of weeks ago because she mistook a breast cancer parade for a Honey Boo Boo parade while driving home from the Catching Fire set in Georgia. “It said ‘boobs’ on the [sign] but I thought it was saying Boo Boo,” she explained of how she rear-ended someone. She had to tell the person she ran into, “I’m sorry that I hit your family. I thought I saw Honey Boo Boo. Please forgive me.”
  • On another Georgia adventure, she found herself at a “dive bar with senior citizen strippers,” getting a lap dance from an aggressive Bo Peep, who warned her not to touch her when she bent down, and “then she inserted her breast into my mouth.” Jen still tipped her, though.
  • Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell wanted her to gain weight for the role, which JLaw was excited about, but she also worried how she’d do it. “I already eat like someone who is proving something.”
  • Her solution? Deep-fried Philly cheese steaks.

BRB, we are going to find where those exist now.
