‘Starving’ Best Actress nominee tells MTV News she ordered a meal to-go to avoid a real-life ‘hunger games.’
It’s safe to say that most of the nominees walking the red carpet Sunday night (February 24) were keeping their minds busy with dreams of Oscarglory, but Jennifer Lawrence had something else on her mind: McDonald’s.
By the time the Best Actress nominee reached our live-stream hosts — MTV News’ Josh Horowitz and VH1’s Janell Snowden — she was more or less starving, having forgotten to eat before heading to the Dolby Theatre. And when Horowitz asked about her very own “hunger games,” Lawrence was shocked.
“How on Earth did you hear that?” she asked. “I forgot to eat because I was so stressed trying to leave the house, and I got in the car and I was starving. The [ceremony] is four hours long. I got in the car and could see the McDonald’s right there, so. …”
Even as Lawrence bravely carried on with the interview, she was struck with an important detail. “Hang on, I didn’t say fries. I’m seeing you talk, and all I’m thinking about is me pissed that I didn’t get fries,” she said. “You have to remind them of ketchup because they never include ketchup. You have to ask for it.”
