Ya’ll know my aversion to this chick but I think this was cute…
J-Law is not fond of awards shows or speeches, and she made that clear last night when she presented an award to Jon Feltheimer, CEO of Lionsgate (the studio behind the Hunger Games franchise), at the Producers Guild Awards.
She opened by telling the crowd at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel that she wish she would have taken a “Xanax” before hitting the state.
“I normally say no to this kind of thing on the account of my crippling anxiety and the unbreakable bond between woman and couch,” Lawrence said. “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.”
Looking at Feltheimer at his table, Lawrence said, “I know what you’re thinking, I’m going to totally mess this up—and you’re right.
She said that “Jonn 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—king failure!”
No, she wasn’t serious.
“I was so afraid of signing on to these movies a few years ago because something that size can make or break a career,” Lawrence said. “I put my trust in Lionsgate and they put their trust in me and now I think we have a strong and amazing relationship that I hope lasts until my career dies at 35.”
Fumbling a few words at about the four-minute mark, Lawrence yelped, “Oh, God! I’m sorry. It’s just so long.”
