This is why we love you, Jennifer Lawrence

You know when a joke REALLY awkwardly backfires? That’s exactly what happened to Jennifer Lawrence recently during an MTV interview with Hunger Games co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, in which she suggested she didn’t wash her hands when she went to the toilet. She was JOKING, obvs!

Unfortunately, her joke was taken out of context, leading to a series of questions about her hygiene on her press tour. Not cool, at all!


In true J-Law style, the star made light of the rumours with a hilarious video on her Facebook page. The video shows Jennifer is her hotel bathroom running water into a bidet, before saying ‘What a weird toilet.’ She then walks over to the sink where she begins to wash her hands before her friend tells her from out of shot that it’s NOT a toilet, to which Jennifer responds: ‘It’s not a toilet? Oh. Well then I don’t have to wash my hands!” Ha!

Despite the comic nature of the video itself, Jennifer captioned it with a more serious message to shut down her critics. Her caption reads: ‘

I hate talking to the Internet but I can’t get asked another question about my hygiene on this press tour. I told MTV I didn’t wash my hands after going to the bathroom because I was trying to gross out Josh and Liam and I ended up grossing out the world. Of course I wash my hands after going to the bathroom! (I can’t believe I’ve put myself in a situation where I even have to say that.) Anyway with all the rumors I’ve ever heard about myself this is the one I really had to put to rest.’

We don’t blame you, J-Law! Well done for shutting those rumours down in true cool-girl style – we applaud you!
