Jennifer Lawrence's Raunchy Jokes at Cinemacon Has The Audience in Splits | 'You Were a Virgin for a Crazy Long Time'
This isn't the first time Hollywood and the media are taking note of Jennifer Lawrence's sense of humor. She has established herself as the quirky girl next door in the industry who is always ready with her bag full of jokes and is easy to hang out with. Recently, The Hunger Games fame brought her comedic persona to CinemaCon in Las Vegas. According to Variety, the actress arrived at the event unfolding at Caesar's Palace on Monday to promote her latest raunchy comedy film, No Hard Feelings.
"And this is based on your life, right?" Lawrence took a dig at the director of the film, Gene Stupnitsky, during the promotional event and he retorted, "No, it's actually based off a Craigslist ad." "But you were a virgin for, like, a crazy long time. You were 26?" Lawrence joked yet again. The filmmaker sighed before rolling an extended clip from the trailer. "Jennifer, you're so hilarious. I wrote this part for you," the director said, not knowing what else to say.
The film's promotion played out to a huge crowd at the event and the audience just couldn't control their laughter. Stupnitsky showered praises on Lawrence and called her "a true comedy natural" in the film. The latest movie of Lawrence is about two overprotective parents who hire Lawrence's character to date their introverted 19-year-old son so he doesn't leave for college as a virgin.
The film seems to be as hilarious as the trailer itself and so far Lawrence has been doing a good job at the promotional works. Lawrence's character in the film is called Maddie who is an Uber driver forced to resort to desperate measures after her car is repossessed. She stumbles upon an unusual Craigslist posting, where her new employers are the wealthy parents of an academically gifted but socially clueless teenage boy named Percy who is not really interested in human interactions.
