Why Jennifer Lawrence Got Wasted Before Her Sex Scene With Chris Pratt
Right off the bat, you should probably be aware of two facts: 1. Jennifer Lawrence is awkward AF, and never wants you to forget it, 2. Chris Pratt is adorable, beloved by many women the world over, Galore included.
In a round table interview for the Hollywood Reporter with fellow actresses Brie Larson, Cate Blanchett and Carey Mulligan, Jennifer Lawrence got real about what it was like to shoot her “first real sex scene,” and why she’s not exactly looking forward to repeating the “really bizarre…really weird” experience.
When asked how she prepared for her scene, Lawrence replied, “You drink.”
But before you think to yourself, “Oh, that’s adorable! Jennifer Lawrence is just like me! I always take a shot to get the edge of,” you should know that Jennifer Lawrence didn’t just have a drink, she “got really, really drunk. But then that led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, “What have I done? I don’t know.”
Of course, it probably didn’t help that Chris Pratt was married.
Lawrence elaborated, “And it was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach. And I knew it was my job, but I couldn’t tell my stomach that. So I called my mom, and I was like, ‘Will you just tell me it’s OK?’ It was just very vulnerable. And you don’t know what’s too much. You want to do it real, you want everything to be real, but then … That was the most vulnerable I’ve ever been.”
What do you think? Is Jennifer Lawrence’s respect for the sanctity of marriage adorable, or should she just get over herself? On an unrelated note, who wants to participate in my Jennifer Lawrence drinking game? Drink whenever she does or says anything embarrassing that you want to shake your head at? Hit me up.
