Jennifer Lawrence Apologizes For “Brain Fart,” Thanks David O. Russell & Harvey Weinstein In Oscar Speech Addendum

Jennifer Lawrence Apologizes For "Brain Fart," Thanks David O. Russell & Harvey Weinstein In Oscar Speech Addendum

So, we picked Jennifer Lawrence as our Woman Of The Year for 2012, and….toldja. If there was any doubt last fall, the actress secured her place as America's sweetheart Sunday night by being the awkward nerd we all wanted to be at the Oscars. From falling up the stairs to get her Best Actress award, to totally freaking the fuck out when Jack Nicholson smoothly hit on her backstage and handling the idiotic questions from the press corps with aplomb, it seems there's one more way for Lawrence to endear herselves to us.

Having likely spent the last day or so reveling in her Oscar win, the actress has penned an open letter to director David O. Russell and producer Harvey Weinstein apologizing for her "brain fart" and forgetting them during her acceptance speech. It's a nice letter that's two parts sincere thanks and one part classic Lawrence, and it's just pure class all around. So read it in full below and after that is one more pic from Oscar night that fully illustrates why Lawrence basically rules. [EW]

In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life.

David O. Russell: Thank you for the most incredible experience of my life. Thank you for your genius, for your guidance, for teaching me things about myself and nurturing me to be a better actor. You have so much passion and such a bleeding heart, you believe not only in your films but what your films can do for people and that is the most important thing that I have learned from you.

Harvey Weinstein: You championed this movie and its story from early days. Your passion and unyielding support gave this film the opportunity to thrive and touch so many people.

Thank you to both. I will never be able to forgive myself for such a brain fart but I hope that you both can. Obviously it was not on purpose, I couldn’t remember what I had already said and my mind went completely blank–your brain does funny things during the most overwhelming moment of your life!

She's an ass.

Jennifer Lawrence is the best thing they could scrape up in a new generation of up and coming wastes of space- no substance, talent, or even looks though I don't place emphasis on that primarily, I don't think many people do – she is terrible at everything and should be put down like the mutt she is.

J. Law's a Derivative and spoiled brat

God, she's awful! Her acting isn't all that great. Jessica Chastain was robbed of her Oscar. Jennifer Lawrence is a spoiled brat And it's annoying to see how the whole entertainment industry and the media and her fans are giving her a pass. She's America's Douchebag! Julia Robert is America's Sweetheart. You actually have to be sweet to be our sweetheart. J.Law is crude, rude, obnoxious and arrogant. The upside is her career is pretty muchover cause she peaked too soon. Look at Mira Sorvino's career. It was over after she won the Oscars. Thank God we don't have to be annoyed by a spoiled white girl who thinks her shit don't stink. Bitch, please! You ain't all that!

I also think it's odd that she is getting praised as "adorable" for doing things like the things flipping the bird, swearing, smoking weed, and making hurtful comments in interviews while other actors/actresses who do the very same things are crucified. It's not the age either because there are so many other actresses just as young or younger who aren't given their due and most likely wouldn't behave this way if given the opportunities she has. Beyond that, I think she is a very good actress and enjoy her roles, but not the greatest thing since sliced bread. Check out Saoirse Ronan, Jessica Chastain, and Jena Malone's work. They are cameleons in their roles, extraordinarily gifted, classy and are true artists. None of them have gotten their due yet.

How is she classy? I just don't get it. She doesn't exactly impress me in her performances and during interviews. JLaw comes off as a spoiled brat.

If this is another celebrity who hadn't been loved so much like her, people will definitely call the person a douchebag,a jerk,etc.,not "being real". Why the double standard? Why can't she act like an adult since she's been a celebrity for quite a while? She's been doing so many promo events and press junkets after THG's success. Why is she still being like that? From Golden Globes pressroom to Oscars pressroom, all she does is not cute,but immature. Being like that at a graceful and humble event like these award shows is annoying. She was just like a douchebag who's all herself comparing to other nominees. I just dont understand why so many fans,especially teens, are here to defend her. What happened to the kids now? Being all self is not what you should learn as a kid.

I think she's funny, but I don't think being funny or charming should earn you an oscar but sadly the academy awards are like the vmas of serious films, emmanuelle riva was more deserving, i mean i don't even get why people like the silver lining playbook, david o. russell has done so much better films than that, but his new film was like the cheap version of as good as it gets & i also think that lawrence just plays herself, but well i guess the girl next door charm is what counts in these things

First, Jennifer Lawrence has very little acting experience ( and she is not a trained actress ) , and it shows in all her performances ( she is always playing herself ) . Second, Lawrence's performance in Silver Linings Playbook was soulless , weak, and not credible ( it is beyond ridiculous that she won the Oscar over Riva and Watts ) . Third, flipping the " bird " at the Oscars does not make you look cool or hip- it makes you look classless and idiotic. I would love to see Meryl Streep or Judy Dench flip the bird at the Oscars. People are going to get tired of Lawrence's antics, and she will receive a backlash.

Deneice

I don't care how much she drank before going to the backstage press; I don't care how nervous or freaked out she was at winning: YOU DONT FLIP THE BIRD (OR DROP AN F-BOMB) TO THE PRESS (OR ANYONE ELSE IN PUBLIC) EVER AFTER WINNING AN OSCAR!!! ESPECIALLY AFTER YOU WON OVER THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN WORKNG LONGER SUCH AS JESSICA CHASTAIN!!! IT IS TACKY, JUVENILE, AND INCREDIBLY STUPID!!! LAWRENCE CARRIES HERSELF SO WELL, BUT IN THAT ONE INSTANCE, SHE FORGOT WHERE SHE WAS!! IT IS THE OSCARS, NOT SOME DIVE BAR!!!

jimmiescoffee
