Jack Nicholson crashes “Best Actress” Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence’s interview

I’m a bad gay.  I didn’t watch the Oscars last night.  But still, this is a wonderful video. Best Actress Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence is doing an interview with George Stephanopoulos, and who comes up but Jack Nicholson, gushing at Lawrence about her performance.  Lawrence has never met Nicholson before, and is over-the-top blown away that he came over to meet her, but she does a good job of keeping her cool.

At one point, Nicholson says “you look like an old girlfriend of mine.”  She replies: “Oh really? Do I look like a new girlfriend?”

Nicholson then says “I thought about it.”  Then here’s Lawrence’s face when she turns back to Stephanopoulos.

Jennifer-Lawrence-Oscars

I honestly have never heard of her before, but I love how she handles herself with Nicholson.  Neat person.  Thought you’d enjoy the exchange:

    Love Jack.

    She was great in the series “In Treatment.”

    Decades ago when Jack was skinny, I saw a private performance by home going off at the reservations desk clerk at an inn in Vail. He had flown in the night before and “his” room which he had reserved was not available.

    She has the Marilyn Monroe type of body … meaning normal! Hope she leads the way for new Hollywood and Hollywood can get rid of, once and for, all the anorexic sticks!

    Don’t feel bad John. I didn’t even know who she was and I saw Hunger Games! I didn’t like the movie, but I loved her acting.

    When I came back from the holidays, I was nursing a cold for 2 weeks and ended up seeing all the awards shows. Seeing her was so cute. I loved all the outfits she wore at various awards shows (all so different), including the dress that almost fell off her. I really loved seeing her. She’s contagious. Can’t wait to see more of her movies.

    Last Saturday I walked down to the beach and I saw her “live” on Saturday at the SPIRIT Independent Film awards in Santa Monica. I was so impressed to see her walk over to all of us fans waiting outside. She gave EVERYONE who requested it an autograph. She signed fast … but she worked it. Very impressive for someone in the industry less than 5 years. She’s going to go far!

    Yes, and she looks much more attractive as a brunette, IMHO. ;-)

    I concur. A whole lot of bad adaptation writing was made pretty decent by Jennifer Lawrence.

    I just watched Hunger Games again recently, it having popped to the top of my Netflix DVD queue, and I still got shivers down my spine at the end of a certain scene involving the passing away of an ally. (No spoilers). Just that look into the surveillance camera she knew was watching, and the three finger kiss & salute… wow.

    One name you should definitely add to the list: Mia Wasikowska. She is seriously amazing, delivering some mind-blowing performances. She even gives Jennifer Lawrence a run for her money, who I’d put at the top of your list (only since Portman seems to want to wind her career down and has floated the idea of retiring after her next batch of movies).

    Wasikowska’s probably best known for Alice in Wonderland and The Kids are All Right, but her best role thus far has been Jane Eyre, opposite Michael Fassbender. She has a slew of movies in production that should be interesting, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she eeks out an Oscar nomination or two from them. (I’m particularly excited about Stoker, directed by Chan-Wook Park of “Oldboy” fame, basically one of the best and most distinctive directors out there who no one’s heard of because he’s mainly done Korean cinema.)

    If you watch it, Jack’s in the background wiping his forehead before he talks to George. Mr. Nicholson talking with George is obviously just a setup for him to, as nervous as a schoolboy, talk to Ms. Lawrence and then awkwardly walk away. It’s obvious he was thrown by her humor and it’s sort of cute that the legendary actor showed something so…. green…. as tripping over himself in the presence of a pretty lady.
    Whether he goes all creepy to her after the interview is something entirely different, but I read into this something different than your interpretation. Then again, I don’t really know what hollywood relationships Mr. Nicholson had so I can’t be a judge, either way, on creepy.

  • Drew2u

    The good-natured humor melted my heart. You’re the second person to recommend Winter’s Bone so I may have to find it.

  • Drew2u

    Dakota Fanning looked like she was anorexic in Push. =

  • http://www.ryanstake.net RyansTake

    Yup. She played the lead, and kept what could have been a disastrously bad movie into something that is actually watchable.

    The fact that Hunger Games was a hit at all is pretty remarkable given how weird the source material is… and it *never* would have happened without Jennifer Lawrence.

  • http://www.ryanstake.net RyansTake

    Hunger Games wasn’t a particularly great movie, but could have quickly descended into the horribleness that is the Twilight franchise if it didn’t have someone of the caliber of Jennifer Lawrence in the lead.

    If, however, that movie leaves you questioning her talent as an actress, go watch Silver Linings Playbook or Winter’s Bone — and particularly the latter, where she carries the whole show.

    Lawrence does have that almost Ryan Gosling likability in that she’s both incredibly talented and down to earth. It helps that she’s pretty hilarious, too.

  • lilyannerose

    Oh, she’s that FAT actress. Yep, she’s actually been called fat! I rank her high on the list of those to watch in the coming years. So far I have her, Dakota Fanning, Jessica Chastain and Natalie Portman on the A list be interesting to see who else breaks out of the pack and manifests talent!

  • http://AMERICAblog.com/ John Aravosis

    Yep, just a lovely person.

  • http://AMERICAblog.com/ John Aravosis

    OMG, she was the Hunger Games?!!

  • Dakotahgeo

    ROFL!!! Now THAT was sweet!!! What a lady! (I mean Jennifer!!!)

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    Not all. He is creepy and makes my skin crawl.

  • Drew2u

    Didn’t recognize the name but I recognized that sore-throat alto voice. I only ever saw the Hunger Games and the best part about that was the Bad Lip Read parody so I was ready for a snarky comment, but dang if she didn’t grow on me in the last minute or so, seeming like a regular gal than either a ingrained hollywood dilettante or a vapid, distracted line-rehearser.

    Good on her; keep those sharp witticisms handy!

  • http://www.ryanstake.net RyansTake

    He is great at being creepy. :p

    Kidding, kidding. We’ll just leave it at eccentric.

    All that said, so glad Lawrence won. She’s an amazing actress. If she made Winter’s Bone in almost any other year, it would have even been her first Oscar. She unfortunately ran into a wall in that one — when Natalie Portman gave one of the best performances ever in Black Swan.

    Plus, Lawrence has that essential Hollywood quality that ensures an enduring career: she’s bankable. The Hunger Games would not have done anywhere near as well without her — and Silver Linings Playbook has already crossed $100 million.
