In case you’ve missed it, Jennifer Lawrence brought her best friend Laura Simpson to the 86th Annual Academy Awards and the results of that are just priceless — and funny.
On her Myspace page, Simpson gave her account of the evening and it’s well worth the read. Recalling how they met in the first place, she revealed, “Seven years ago at an event where we both didn’t know a single person. We hit it off over a mutual respect for Chandler Bing, and we have been eating pizza together ever since.”
With regard to Lawrence’s falling incident this year, she said, “We finally arrive at the red carpet and as we exit the car, my date eats s**t and uses my freshly done Lauren Conrad updo to break her fall. The crowd goes wild. There are flashbulbs and people circling yet no one asks if I need any help because unless you are famous at the Oscars, you are completely invisible. The only time anyone talks to you is if you are in the way of his or her photo.”
With regard to the ceremony itself, she said, “Basically everyone in the theater is just sitting in complete darkness during the categories. It’s hot and you feel like you’re going to pass out. After waiting for my date’s category, her dad and I decide to hit the bar and just watch from the monitor behind the bar and slam a few drinks to make this tolerable. The Academy really needs to spring for more hors d’oeuvres options because now everyone is hammered.”
For all of you wondering what Brad Pitt smells like, she’s got the inside scoop on that as well. She added, “After the show we go backstage where I meet Brad and Angelina. Brad Pitt smells amazing, like nothing I’ve ever smelled. Eventually we ask what cologne he’s wearing and he tells us, ‘I don’t wear cologne, it’s just my musk I guess.’”
