From gracing the red carpet to the set of Saturday Night Live, Silver Linings Playbook’s Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence is slated to host the hit skit-comedy show, and in a newly released promo, it appears she fits in quite well.
Extra reports that the 22-year-old actress’ promo surfaced Wednesday where she appears alongside Horrible Bosses and SNL regular, Jason Sudeikis.
In the promo Lawrence is presented with the “award” hosting the show. Before she can give an acceptance speech she is “played off” the stage. The promo follows with Lawrence guessing movie quotes which Sudeikis continued by laughing, “Well how should I know?”
Lawrence has also been nominated for an Academy Award. Audience members should anticipate an off the cuff acceptance speech should she be honored with the award. While accepting the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical, The Hunger Games actress pulled a line from The First Wives clubs joking, “I beat Meryl!”
Her speech first received criticism as many thought she was taking a jab at the iconic actress. Lawrence explained her remarks with David Letterman on an episode of The Late Show with David Letterman.
She explained, "I wanted to make a public statement and say, 'Hey idiots. It's a quote from a movie,'" Lawrence joked. "'And it's Meryl Streep.'"
