So, Maybe Jennifer Lawrence Was High When She Won Her Oscarby Matthew Scott Donnelly | PopCrush
Here’s what probably wouldn’t assuage a sense of paranoia that comes from soft drug use: Winning an Oscar during a broadcast that reaches more than 40 million people.
On last night’s (December 21) episode of Watch What Happens Live, Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence played a round of Plead the Fifth, during which host Andy Cohen grilled the actress for dirt on what goes on behind Hollywood’s closed doors. And when he told his guest that Susan Sarandon recently revealed that she routinely smoked pot before big ceremonies (save for the Oscars), and asked Lawrence if she, herself, had ever done the same, the reliably candid Lawrence made good on her reputation.
“I’m actually completely reversed,” she says in the clip above. “I smoked pot at none of [the shows], but I saw my brother smoking out of a bong before one of the Oscars — won’t say which–“
“Did you take a little hit?” Cohen presses.
“Yeah,” Lawrence concedes before a sly sip of her drink.
She’s bent on keeping which show a secret, but we’re secretly hoping she’s referring to the 2013 Oscars, during which she got her first trophy for Silver Linings Playbook (look for any telling evidence here).
Surprised to hear J. Law might have been a little bit out of sorts during what is potentially the biggest moment of her professional career? Tell us what you think of her admission.
