Jennifer Lawrence Went To Jail For The Most Boring Reason Ever
Not that there’s really a good reason to go to jail, but six years ago Jennifer Lawrence went to jail for what just might be the most boring reason ever.
Are you ready for it?
Because she didn’t remember to get a work visa.
See? We told you it was boring.
Jennifer recounted the whole story on a recent visit to the Graham Norton Show, which is the same British talk show where she once confessed that she pukes whenever she feels stressed, exhausted or has more than one tequila shot.
According to J Law, the whole saga went down when she flew over to London to meet with X-Men director Matthew Vaughn.
“They were like, ‘whatever you do, don’t tell them that you’re here for work, because they’ll ask for a work visa; say you’re here for pleasure,” Jennifer explained.
So what did she do?
“I got there and he’s like, ‘business or pleasure?’ [and I said] Pleasure.”
And that’s where the trouble started.
First, her customs agent asked her, “What are you doing for pleasure?” and J Law answered, “My brother’s getting married.”
Perhaps sensing a scam or you know, just doing his job, the customs agent then asked her, “Where’s your brother getting married?” to which she said, “Wimbledon.”
After a few more back and forths, J Law decided that the whole fake backstory thing was just too much for her and so she decided to tell the truth. Obviously, that didn’t go well for her. She was forced to “sit in a tiny little jail for like five hours while they called my employer.”
Oh J Law, what are we gonna do with you?
