Jennifer Lawrence in the David Letterman Show said that the controversial statement she had made after winning the Golden Globes this year, was just a quote from the film “First Wives Club.”
The Hunger Games actress said she was just having a pop at the Legendary Meryl streep. She had said, “What does it say? I beat Meryl!” after winning a Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy-musical for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook.
Lawrence, 22, visited the Late Show with David Letterman on tuesday, January 15th to buff up the controversy surrounding her acceptance speech for the Best Actress in a Motion picture on January 13th.
“It’s never a good idea for me to wing it, but it was a quote from First Wives Club!” Lawrence said. “It was so perfect, and I said it,” she explained of the 1996 film starring Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn. (In The First Wives Club movie scene that Lawrence was quoting, Midler goes into Hawn’s apartment, picks up the award and says, ‘Look what it says! It says, I beat Meryl.’”)
Lindsay Lohan along with other twitter users had tweeted, “ No one should ever mess with a legend such as Meryl Streep”
“I had no idea that Lindsay Lohan would take it to the Twitterverse, is that what they call it? I’m not on Twitter, but Twitter is very upset,” Lawrence said.
“First of all, it’s Meryl Streep. You can’t offend Meryl Streep,” Lawrence laughing off the controversy argued to David Letterman. “And then all of the sudden I hate Meryl Streep. Is that what this turned into? I don’t like Meryl Streep? As if I had my eyes on getting that girl forever and I was like, ‘Finally! I knew it would happen one day!’”
“What about the dopes that don’t get the joke?” Letterman asked.
“I wanted to make a public statement and say, ‘Hey idiots. It’s a quote from a movie,’” Lawrence joked. “‘And it’s Meryl Streep.’”
Well its tough time for Lawrence! So you “idiotic fans” lend her your support.
