Jennifer Lawrence thought her BAFTA win was a joke

by

We love this girl!

Despite her multiple wins in the past, Jennifer Lawrence didn’t believe she’d won the award for Best Supporting Actress for American Hustle at this year’s BAFTAs.

The Oscar-winner was forced to skip the ceremony due to filming commitments on X-Men: Days of Future Past and the news was delivered by someone on set.

Jen has been neck-in-neck with Lupita Nyong’o from 12 Years a Slave since awards season started and was also up against Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey and Sally Hawkins in this category.

When asked about her win by Deadline, she said: “Oh, it was a big surprise. I didn’t remember that the BAFTAs were happening that day. I certainly did not think I was going to win one, so I put it out of my mind. So there I was, in the middle of being painted blue, and someone said, ‘You just won the BAFTA!’ And I said, ‘Oh, go f**k yourself!’ And then it turned out they were serious.”

Never a dull moment with Jennifer – we can’t wait to see what happens at the Oscars!
