VIDEO: Jennifer Lawrence Jokes She Needs Xanax At Producer’s Guild Awards
Jennifer Lawrence took the stage at the Producer’s Guild Awards on Saturday for a hilarious presentation to Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer. Check out the video below!
The Oscar winner’s hysterical speech was mix of self-deprecation and jabs at the movie industry. “Hello past, present, and hopefully future employers. I wish I had thought to ask one of you for a Xanax!” she began. Lawrence went on, “I normally say no to this kind of thing on the account of my crippling anxiety, and the unbreakable bond between woman and couch. But I when I heard it was for Feltheimer, I had to say yes because I just assumed that I was contractually obligated. But then when I found out that I wasn’t, I had already picked out this dress.”
Lawrence then told the crowd, ” “I know what you’re thinking, I’m going to totally mess this up — and you’re right.” She went on to gloat, “Jon has been in this business longer than I’ve been alive. I love saying that. Anything like that.” Speaking about working with Feltheimer, the actress joked, “Jon was charged to insure that Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games incredible trilogy of books was respectfully brought to life in four films and it was a…large f*cking failure!”
“I was so afraid of signing on to these movies a few years ago because something that size could make or break your career,” Lawrence continued. “But I put my trust in Lionsgate and they put their trust in me, and now I feel like we have a strong and amazing relationship that I hope lasts until my career dies at 35.” Lawrence then got serious, and welcomed Feltheimer on stage to accept the Milestone Award. The star was one of a handful of A-listers at Los Angeles’ Hyatt Regency Century Plaza for the event, one night before the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Check out clips of Lawrence’s speech below!
