Jack Nicholson haunts a Jennifer Lawrence interview, JLaw has cutest reaction

Jennifer Lawrence

Now that the Oscars are over, we’ve steadily moved into the backlash phase, and the feeling of wishing Anne Hathaway would go away for a few years is a given. Somehow though, people don’t feel the same way about Jennifer Lawrence. People just want more of her, and she’s already gone back to work. Yesterday, JLaw almost immediately dyed her hair back to Katniss color for her Catching Fire reshoots.

Before I get to this story, I wanted to quickly mention an article that appeared in the Mail a few days ago, and we didn’t cover it because it’s been fashion city here. Here’s the thing — Jennifer is from Louisville, Kentucky, and whenever she pays a visit to home, she makes sure to stop by and see a very close childhood friend, 23-year-old Andy Strunk, who has Down syndrome. Now I’m pretty sure that her team didn’t put out this story; instead, everything comes straight from Andy (and his mother), who is very proud of JLaw and has been showing the media photos of him and JLaw together at various ages. According to Andy, he and JLaw “are like best friends,” and they talk on the phone all the time because, “She’s kind… I think she has spirit.” I just thought it was a sweet story, and a way to prove that Jennifer has apparently always been very down to earth. Some of you think it’s all an act for her public image, but it’s hard to fake it to this degree.

More proof? A new video from GMA that contains a post-Oscar ceremony interview between JLaw and George Stephanopoulos. The two were discussing Jennifer’s “actual shock” at winning a Best Actress when Jack Nicholson started looming out from the background. George casually stated, “Oh, you got a fan here.” and Jennifer rolls back in disbelief. Then JLaw and Jack compliment each other’s work, and then things get hilarious when Jack starts hitting on her: “You look like an old girlfriend of mine,” to which the she joked, “Oh really, do I look like a new girlfriend?” Jack smugly responds, “I thought about it.” Then he starts to walk away, and she fangirls, and it gets even better, but I’ll let you watch this video for yourself.

Warning: If you don’t like JLaw and don’t want to like JLaw for any reason, please do not watch this video because it will be your JLaw kryptonite.

I love this clip. Jennifer is totally in disbelief over the fact that Jack Nicholson even knows who she is. The dude may very well be a legend, but I think she has more range than he does! She’s so cute and genuine. I think she’ll be around for a very long time. Maybe even longer than Jack.

Thanks to E! Online for this gif.

    She is so cute – that clip is awesome!

  2. aims says:

    Jack is a dirty bird!!!! That said, their banter was funny and she was equally witty as he. She was very funny.

  3. Chicagogurl17 says:

    She’s adorable and the more interviews she does I think she has surrounded herself with good people. Fan girling myself here but between the quick wit and her hot brothers I want to spend the holidays at her house.

  4. Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

    She is adorable. Jack seemed a little perv-y.
    She handled it perfectly.

  5. Oh my God I think I’m in love with her! So funny, so gorgeous and so talented. I can see why Jack would be interested ;)

  6. Toot says:

    I loved how she told Jack he was being really rude when he first walked up and butted in.

    I also love that of all people at the Oscars she was looking forward to seeing Al Roker most of all.

  7. bondbabe says:

    Her reaction was so great! And when George asked her if she knew Nicholson, her response was so genuine.

  8. marie says:

    she’s just so cute, I can’t help but like her.

  9. RocketMerry says:

    Alright, she has officially won me over.

  10. Tanguerita says:

    I really, really like her. She seems to be intelligent enough to take her new life with a grain of salt. It’s very refreshing.

  11. Ailine says:

    I was expecting Jude Law to pop in somewhere. Didn’t know that was her nickname. She has a playful personality that shouldn’t be taken literally.

  12. Nanz says:

    Jennifer Lawrence is awesome. I love this clip. She’s really funny. I wish her the best.

  13. Moi says:

    OMG she’s so damn adorable. I just love her personality.

  14. AustinMJ says:

    LOVE HER!

    Hey Kristen – THIS is how you do genuine.

  15. T.C. says:

    So I guess the story last week about her fighting with Josh on the Catching Fire reshoots set wasn’t true if they just started this week. Just like the story about Jessica Chastain being jealous. Stop the madness.

    Jack’s the man but that was too predatory even for him. He’s old enough to be her great grandfather. Her fangurling shock was funny though.

  16. MsAubra says:

    LMAO @ “You look like an old girlfreind of mine”

    He wouldn’t have walked away after that, I would have had a ball with him! He would have been chuckling from embarrassment, he would have been at a loss for words! LOL

  17. RHONYC says:

    i saw this yesterday and was waiting for you to comment on this BH!

    that was ‘the’ most hilarious knee-jerk reaction from the hit of a aging lothario ever there was.

    i mean Jack has the confidence of Kings when he ‘still’ thinks his bloated-beer-belly-subway-sandwich-eating-on-the-Rivera-ass has a snowball’s chance in hell with this young thang.

    delusions of grandeur, man. :lol:

  18. Lexie says:

    she’s great. i hope hope hope she builds a great career and doesn’t stop learning and improving her – already great – acting skills.

  19. Aileen says:

    I love Jack. I would have definitely gone for it.

  20. Lizzie K says:

    Too cute! How did this girl make it to the top in Hollywood? She’s so …. NORMAL. She makes it fun to be a fan again!

    • Lauren says:

      Jen is not fake..she is well raised and dedicated to acting. Jen’s family is not Hollywood pretentious trash, they are supportive & kind.
      She flipped her finger..oh well.Is that after she had a “shot”?
      I am so impressed with her eloquent acceptance speech, and the birthday wishes she extended to Emanuelle..after she wiped out on the stairs. Jen is obviously very resiliant & intelligent.

  21. i'm french don't kill me says:

    Nicholson is a creepy and he looks an old pervert looking for fresh meat

    her reaction is genuine
    even if i think she doesn’t deserve the Oscar,i hope she will keep her geniune side

  22. Guesto says:

    Love it, their responses to each other are so funny.

    But, “more range than Nicholson”? Come off it.

    I hope Jennifer has a great future ahead of her and keeps that lovely grounded attitude she has, but Jack has earned every piece of his Hollywood status and comparing him to a 22yr old who’s been around for five minutes is just lame.

    • Dan says:

      Jack Nicholson is a legend but he has no range. He plays an extension of himself in most parts, he is not this character actor so i think bedhead was pretty justified in her comments. I love this clip, Jlaw is so refreshingly normal and cute.

      • bubbles says:

        I somewhat agree with you. I love Jack Nicholson, he’s undoubtedly a great actor. But he isn’t like DDL or Christian Bale who’re chameleons and excels at losing themselves in a role. He’s absolutely fantastic at those manic/neurotic roles though.

      • Ms Kay says:

        @ Dan and @ bubbles (and Bedhead by extension)

        Jack Nicholson is unquestionably one of the greatest actors and most versatile actors, with iconic roles, stands out for the incredible range of characters he has convincingly portrayed. He has a vast variety of characters and somewhat he keeps that mysterious vibe, one can’t really figure him out, he has many divergent personalities, and as he says himself “I’m none of them and all of them, there’s a little bit of me, I suppose, in every part I play. As an actor you can’t help inserting yourself, especially if you love acting.”

        He swings on many genres, drama, comedy, thriller… He can go from deep intense characters to light hearted ones. He makes you laugh, cry, hate or love him, scratch your head…

        Christian Bale is awesome but as much as he’s a chameleon he plays on the same line : intense characters. Same goes for DDL, I have yet to see them in light hearted films (and not just one or two). Not that I complain that they should do it, but if they do it’d be an event.

        I might be barking at the wrong tree here but I’d suggest you explore at least a good third of his filmography i.e. watch and not just the most iconic ones.

      • Shi-gatsu says:

        Jack Nicholson is among the best. He has done drama (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), romantic comedy (As Good As It Gets), black comedy (Witches of Eastwick), superhero (Batman), horror (The Shining), gangster (The Departed) . . . the only thing I haven’t seen him in is musical. I love DDL (my fave), but I don’t think he could do superhero or comedy, or even horror

      • Diana says:

        @Ms Kay: you tell them. Comparing Jack to a new commer it’s just disrespecful.

      • Ms Kay says:

        @ Shi-gatsu

        Actually Jack Nicholson starred in a musical film called Tommy, he sings in there, it’s pretty good, it also starred Oliver Reed (one of my fave actors), Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Elton John… I recommend it :-)

        @ Diane

        Ah well I’m simply stating the facts ;-) but I agree that to make that comparison, it’s quite reaching.

  23. Mirella says:

    I love her! Her reactions were hilarious!

  24. ccinkissimmee says:

    She looks gorgeous in this gown…very bootilicious!

  25. Zorbitor says:

    Jack is starting to remind me of Red Skelton… (Your grandparents will think this is funny)

  26. Lil says:

    Guys, I met Jack some years ago, and he was just as flirty with me – I laughed, he laughed, and no-one was offended. TBH, I would have been offended if he hadn’t flirted!

  27. Talie says:

    That Andy kid has done a few interviews for local news in Louisville too. Very cute story.

  28. Nicolette says:

    Love her. And I sooooo love that second dress.

  29. BravoCueen says:

    LOOOOVED this video! It made me smile. For one-one hundredth of a second today, I lost my natural aura of cynacism. Glad that’s over!!

  30. NerdMomma says:

    She’s not even really “cute”- she’s smart and confident and funny. She rolls with it and doesn’t take it all too seriously. Pretty refreshing for an actress, and miles BETTER than cute.

  31. serena says:

    ahahahah oh my god, I loved her reaction and the fact that Jack came all the way to say that. LOL

  32. kpist says:

    This was awesome. There was also a funny clip when she was in the winners circle. Some guy asked her if she was worried that she peaked too soon, she made a funny face and said, “well I am now!!”. It was also cute.

    • Andrea says:

      It’s hard to bc Hollywood almost fetisizes these women when they are young 22 year olds and then seeks to replace them once they hit 30.

      I just really want to see more of these women have long careers.

    • Ms Kay says:

      @ Andrea indeed I can’t help but think about Scarlett Johansson who was such the huge IT girl at 20 and the whole hype around of such a beautiful and amazing actress she is/was etc… Where is she now??

      That being said, Jennifer Lawrence seems smarter by not playing on the whole sex image and attitude… Scarlett played around it a lot (or participated in) and said something like she couldn’t get serious roles because of her sex appeal? But then again they are 2 different personalities I guess…

  33. Merman says:

    I envy how laid-back she is,even around Nicholson.I hope she doesn’t change.

  34. minime says:

    OK, I’m going into girl crush again :)

    First time I saw JLaw in Winter’s bone I really loved her, but she started to get on my nerves with some try hard interviews (or what looked like it) and the Oscar campaign. But on the other hand she seems so genuine and down to earth…ah, she’s a nice change :)

    • Diana says:

      I think that’s the thing with Jennifer. You reed her interviews and it gets to a point where it’s so abnoxious you just wonder what’s up with the love fest for the chick. But then she has televised interviews like this one and she’s so sweet and funny and simply adorable you can’t help but like her. I saw her on THG and X-men and didn’t think she was all that, then I saw her on SLP and thought she was quite good (not Oscar worthy good, though) and before I saw SLP I had only read her interviews and it was awards season so she was freaking everywhere and I was so fed up but then I saw her live interviews and now I can’t help to like her.

      I think that’s the main difference with someone like Kristen Stewart; both of them are young and often inmature (the awkwardness, the moodiness on KS’ part and the fart jokes and recently the flipping the bird on Oscar night, no less, on JL’s part) but for someone like Jennifer it’s easier to give her a pass because she is quite likeable and plain goofy so people just let it slide.

      This clip was awsome, BTW and it only increased my new found feeling of liking her.

  35. Green is Good says:

    You gotta admire Jack. He’s still working his randy ho-stroll. Confidence is sexy.

  36. shewolf says:

    LOL! She’s clumsy and funny but at the same time she is smooth. Incredibly smooth.

  37. Sweet Dee says:

    Three things:

    I tried really hard not to like her, but she won me over. I love her now.

    Everyone YouTube “Between Two Ferns Oscar Edition”!!

    THAT ASS.

  38. OMG, I LOVE HER! I loved her before but now I love her more. And Jack. Come ON. It’s Jack Nicholson. He is awesome, and I’m glad to see him up and about.

  39. Andrea says:

    I think this girl is the real deal. She has real talent and skill and natural appeal. I think she has a long career ahead of her!

  40. MG says:

    This girl is clever beyond her years. She just has “it.” I’m a huge huge fan. There hasn’t been anyone like her in a long time….or ever.

  41. Garvels says:

    Love her…there is such a huge difference between Jennifer and the overpaid Kristen Stewart…and I believe they are the same age. I have a strong hunch that Stewarts career will have a short shelf life whereas Jennifer will be around for a long while.

    • Shi-gatsu says:

      I whole-heartedly agree! I think Kristen’s career will start to wane in the wake of Jennifer’s shine. People are seeing that Jennifer has acting talent and a positive and fun attitude. They will look at Kristen’s try-hard unwashed self and will know in a heartbeat which one they would rather work with.

  42. I Choose Me says:

    I saw this yesterday and yep, I’m officially a fan.

  43. ladybert62 says:

    She seems sweet and real.

    He seems like a real creep and preverted.

  44. Thiajoka says:

    That girl is so cute! She seemed torn between, “OMG, Jack knows who I am!” and “OMG, Jack is coming on to me! Ewww!” And it was adorable.

  45. Dana says:

    It might be an American thing that I dont get.. If genuine and normal is to be loud and with the behaviour of a 12y old boy; maybe it’s something we simply don’t appreciate in Europe. She lacks any basic feminity, it reminds me of Ellen Barkin in that movie when she was a man trapped in A woman’s body.

  46. lucy2 says:

    Anne has come off desperate, needy, and kind of pretentious through all this – Jennifer has not at all. She seems normal, witty, smart, and someone who appreciates and enjoys it all without taking it TOO seriously.

    I like her a lot, hope she stays grounded and continues doing good work.

  47. Reece says:

    Saw this yesterday. Love her.
    Love Jack. Still such a perv. XD
    Back shot of that dress…DAAAYYUM!

  48. STOPGOOP says:

    I’m sold on JLaw now!! Thanks for this clip.

  49. bubbles says:

    I love this moment with her family:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GODmwMpQ-eI

    She seems to have a wonderful support system and I hope she keeps herself grounded. I was personally rooting for Riva but I’m happy for this girl. Haven’t seen Silver Linings Playbook so I can’t comment on her performance, but I thought she was great in Like Crazy and Winter’s Bone.

  50. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    I could see her being friends w Kristen Bell..their dramatic but genuine expressions remind of one another..like this clip brought me back to the adorable video w Bell freaking out over the sloth…both are so cute and seem sweet.

  51. Happy21 says:

    And just when I’m Jennifer Lawrence fan girl CRAZY, I see this clip and love her so much more.

    She’s awesome. I can’t wait to see where her career takes her :)

  52. islandwalker says:

    Been a fan of hers since Winters Bone, that interview sealed the deal. I hope she can stay grounded.

  53. Listerino says:

    I think she’s cute, I just hope that in time that cuteness doesn’t turn into creepiness like with Taylor Swift.

  54. Gabby says:

    I’m seriously in love with this girl! She is so genuine and even with the tons of exposure she gets, I am still not sick of her. Gorgeous and so full of life.

  55. Samigirl says:

    Ack! I love her and this makes me love her even more! I feel like J.Law and I could be besties. Her reaction is great, her facial expressions are priceless, and she is cute, humble, self-deprecating, and funny, all at the same time. I love her. Have I mentioned that already? =)

  56. Nancy says:

    I love Jack but what he said to her was creepy.

  57. jessiesgirl says:

    This is the best thing I’ve seen all awards season. That witty banter between the two of them will be a priceless memory for her. This clip is so damn cute!

  58. StaCat1 says:

    She is adorable..and he is just creepy

  59. F5 says:

    Stephanopoulos is a total loser for missing the perfect opportunity to invite Jack and make it the most hilarious interview ever..

  60. Eve says:

    hah, I was just thinking how she kind of looks like a softer, blonde version of young anjelica houston ;) badass attitude around the eyes
    http://blogue.us/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/fwhv2d.jpg

  61. Miss M says:

    I finally got home to see this video! hahahaha

    As much as I like her, I was rooting for Riva (Jessica or Naomi too- it was such a strong category). But I have to say, I love her reaction! Jack, old fool/creepy! :) . I also felt really bad she fell when she went to get her award.

    ps: I wonder if Harvey ever tried to make her one of his girls and this is how she reacted, hahahaha.

  62. Shira says:

    People who dislike JLaw… just, WHY?!
    And for anyone to say that story about her friendship with Andy is by her team is just the saddest, most cynical thing ever.

    LOVED that interview and the interaction with Jack. I just love how she always has a comeback ready, even when she’s star struck.

  63. Shi-gatsu says:

    “She’s got spirit” – I love it!

  64. vvvoid says:

    I don’t think Jack was being all that creepy. It was like he was making fun of himself, his notoriety for dating inappropriately aged women, am I the only one who saw that? And Jennifer handled it with awesome wit and charisma.

  65. Weedarkone says:

    I’ve been seeing links to this all day, and every time I click on it, I get “this video has been removed”. What am I doing wrong?! I must see this!!! Lol. Anyone else having trouble seeing the video?

  66. LurkeeLee says:

    Dirty old man and annoying, average looking girl who is flattered by him. Nuff said.

  67. bettyrose says:

    JLaw is so cool. I’m totally fangirling an actress who is so much younger than any guy I would ever look at. She’s also gorgeous with an impossible figure. Who could possibly say she isn’t?

  68. Mario says:

    He’s a creepy pervert with a huge ego. He’s a perfect example of the type of man women in Hollywood and elsewhere should stay away from. He’s single for a reason, he’s spoiled and selfish and no woman could possibly compete with his ego.

  69. ??? says:

    Her reaction was cute. She was obviously still on cloud nine after winning. Plus, she hasn’t been entrenched in showbiz long enough to know that an actor’s perv-factor isn’t automatically negated just because he’s considered a Hollywood great. Give her a few more years.

    “You look like an old girlfriend of mine.” Gross. Nicholson has a daughter her age!!! He came off as a creeper because it was obvious he wanted to hit on her and used complimenting her performance as a slick little intro. Typical pervy-old-man hunting strategy.

  70. Serenity says:

    Wow! What is not to like about this girl?? I had such a great laugh after watching this video :) She just seems like an awesome person…

    FANGIRL ALERT! ;)

  71. Good_as_Gold says:

    Who else picked out the “awkward” JLaw/AHath moment? It was like Anne was as stiff as an ironingboard and was all “speak to the hand” to Jennifer, cold as ice, so perhaps the rumours that she hates her younger rival are indeed true. Anne – meh, go away you overrated windbag.

  72. Maxine says:

    LOVE THIS! I really didn’t have an opinion of JLAW before this – I’m a fan. And I don’t get the old pervy man vibe from this – if anything it’s JLAW that pushes it with the funny line about looking like a new girlfried and the he just goest with it. Cute banter, adorable woman, she’s going to be on the hollywood scene for a long time.

  73. Greyskydawg says:

    I fail to see anything redeeming about Ms Lawrence. Only seeing the clip shown, she does not appear talented nor does she have any beauty.Screaming about sex and throwing objects around a diner – a bit too narcissistic, no depth. Sure she may go far in the highly marketed youth genre until the next shiny object appears.

  74. Jess says:

    Okay, finally saw the Jack video and I now love him and JLaw even more!
