Jennifer Lawrence Reveals She's Legitimately Scared of Alien Invasions
By Zach Seemayer
Jennifer Lawrence says she's not cool with Earth's scientists attempting to contact extraterrestrials.
The Joy star opened up about her fear of a hostile alien invasion while sitting down with Stephen Colbert on Monday's The Late Show, where she argued that trying to make contact with alien lifeforms is dangerous business.
"Based on history, when we find each other, we kill each other," Lawrence explained. "I don't feel like aliens are going to be like, 'Oh great! Let's get along.' They might not. They might want to destroy us. Have you seen a Tom Cruise movie?"
"So sometimes I look up into the stars and I'm like, 'Oh wow… oh god…"
The unexpected admission provided a wonderful introduction for Colbert's amazing segment "Big Questions With Even Bigger Stars," where Lawrence laid down with Colbert in a faux-grassy field to stare at the night sky and ponder life's important questions.
