Fresh from winning Best Actress as the 85th Academy Awards for her role in David O. Russell film Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer Lawrence was the talk of Hollywood as journalists scrambled to secure an interview.
George Stephanopoulos, the highly respected Hollywood reporter, was discussing Lawrence’s moment in the light as she gleefully clung onto her award with a beaming smile when, out of nowhere, the main man Jack Nicholson arrives on the scene.
“You did such a beautiful job,” he said while sneaking into the shot. “I didn’t mean to cross into your interview but I had to congratulate you,” Nicholson said as Lawrence tried to keep her composure.
Nicholson has always had game, there’s no doubt about it. In an old interview dating back to 2013, the iconic actor once said: “There were points in my life when I felt oddly irresistible to women,” Nicholson told The Sun. “I’m not in that state now, which makes me sad… I would love that one last romance, a real romance, but I’m not very realistic about it happening.”
So, when three-time Oscar winning told Lawrence, “You look like an old girlfriend of mine,” we all know what’s going on. Lawrence though, unfettered by meeting an idol of hers, snapped back in typically witty fashion: “Really? Do I look like a new girlfriend?” before giggling back to interviewer Stephanopoulos.
After the first meeting Lawrence later revealed: “He’s sent me flowers and a bottle of Cristal and a note that said ‘Missing you already.’ Not to brag,” while speaking to ABC News.
She added: “I should’ve probably kept that a secret so it could just be between me and Jack.”
