Jennifer Lawrence might be able to hold her own on the big screen, but how does she handle herself when an interviewer awkwardly flirts with her?
Joined by her Hunger Game co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, the 25-year-old actress was a guest on BBC Radio 1’s The Breakfast Show, where Olly Murs attempted to put on the charm.
Here’s the backstory: A month earlier, the 31-year-old X-Factor runner-up gushed about his love for Lawrence while talking to the show’s host Nick Grimshaw, and said he’d kiss the American Hustle star if he had to pick one actress. Following bro code, Grimshaw invited the British singer back for the interview and awkwardness ensued, which Lawrence handled flawlessly.
At the beginning of the interview, Grimshaw shared that Murs was the “biggest Jennifer Lawrence fan in the world.”
“You’ve virtually ignored me since I’ve come here,” Lawrence joked.
Murs then asked the actress several questions, which seemed to have hidden compliments, such as, “Is there any film you couldn’t do? Because you are a superb actress.”
Or when Murs asked Lawrence what her ideal guy was, to which she deadpanned, “You.”
In the end, Murs didn’t get the kiss he dreamed of, but he did get a little a hug.
Lawrence is no stranger to awkward moments. Watch the star take a tumble at the Hunger Games Madrid premiere.
