Jennifer Lawrence: Naked on the bottom, uneven on top

February 01, 2013|By Nardine Saad

Jennifer Lawrence is doing the late night rounds hitting both "Piers Morgan Tonight" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to address her SAG Awards wardrobe malfunction and just about anything but "Silver Linings Playbook."

"Your producer made me do two shots of tequila and a beer. But the beer was my decision," she told Kimmel before starting up a story about her bout with walking pneumonia. Yep, the Oscar nominee has been unpredictable and super fun to watch this awards season and playfully holds her own in interviews.

"I went to the doctor today and got a chest X-ray of my lungs and discovered that my breasts are uneven! That was all I saw, I think my lungs are fine," the 22-year-old joked.

"I was standing with these doctors and they were looking at my lungs and it felt like the elephant in the room," Lawrence said. "I was like, 'Are my breasts uneven?' And they were just stifled and uncomfortable, obviously."

"Are you worried about that?" Kimmel responded. "Is that a concern?"

"It wasn't until the X-ray. I just hope no one will ever see my breasts in an X-ray," the actress added. "I hope I'm never seen in that light."

After recording Kimmel, the "The Hunger Games" star hurried over to "Piers Morgan Tonight," where Morgan was forced to begin the broadcast with "Silver Linings" director David O. Russell sans his star.

Lawrence, who collected the best female actress SAG Award last Sunday, watched a replay of herself accepting the award. But her win wasn't the only item that made headlines: Her tiered Christian Dior gown appeared to shift while she was walking onstage.

"Oh, God. Oh," she laughed as she watched the video that revealed her thinly veiled upper thighs. "My pants fell off," she told Morgan and Russell, who seemed to be hearing about the situation for the first time.

"Somebody trips me on the way, I remember that ... and yeah, there it starts to fall off. And then I'm keeping it together, keeping it together, then my pants fall off again!"

"It's the way the dress was structured," she told the Daily Mail. "It's a tiered dress, which I didn't understand until I sat down and saw my thighs through sheer material and thought, 'What's going on?!' So yes, that was a surprise, but not a malfunction."

"It was supposed to do that, though. I planned it," she said, tongue-in-cheek. "I was concerned people would start talking about the award that I won, and my acting, so I thought I'd pull a stunt just to get things back to where they need to be."

The House of Dior has already addressed the issue, too, saying, "It was not ripped and there was no malfunction ... it was the design of the gown."

Too bad, because this totally would have made it into our book of epic and unplanned awards show moments. But it's OK, we love seeing her explain herself regardless.
