Playing Adam McKay Jokingly Calls Out Jennifer Lawrence Pre-Awards Show Pot Smoking: I'd Arrest Her

Is Adam McKay blowing up Jennifer Lawrence's spot?!

The Big Short director facetiously called out the Golden Globe-winning actress after her recent admission to smoking pot before a past Academy Awards ceremony, saying, "If it was up to me she'd be arrested."

"That's not cool, I'm a law-and-order guy," he told ET at the BAFTA Tea Party over the weekend. "You know what I do before the Oscars? I read the Bible! That's what I'm gonna do."

"Miss Lawrence, if you're watching - not cool!" the director added. "I'm a patriot."

Before you go thinking McKay is a total narc, you should know that at the same event, he gave this reason for why he'd never run for office: "I have too much of a bizarre past to ever get into politics. I'd have to explain why I was high outside of a rap concert in 1988."
