Olivia Wilde Sent Jennifer Lawrence Soup After She Puked at Her Broadway Show: 'I Felt So Bad'
By Jackie Willis
Jennifer Lawrence had a busy night lined up before she got sick with the stomach flu.
Last week, the 26-year-old actress went to see Olivia Wilde and Tom Sturridge in the Broadway production of 1984 in New York City, but reportedly "bolted from her seat," and was puking. Wilde appeared on Tuesday's episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, and responded to a caller who asked if Lawrence apologized to her.
"Listen, she didn't need to apologize. I felt so bad and I sent her some Matzah ball soup and some bagels and she feels much better," the 33-year-old actress said. "She had the stomach flu, The poor thing walked in sick."
Cohen then revealed that Lawrence was supposed to make an appearance on WWHL that night but got too sick. The late-night host said the Oscar winner -- a reality TV fan -- was excited to be on show with The Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson.
"Oh no! Her whole night was ruined!" Wilde exclaimed. "But she's feeling better. Thank the lord, because she's the best."
Just after Lawrence fell ill at the Broadway show, Wilde responded with a lighthearted tweet. "As long as I have a play, Jennifer Lawrence has a place to puke," she declared, adding the hashtags #honored, #getwellsoon, #iloveyou, #1984onBarfway and #spewbagsnotincluded.
The stomach flu didn't keep Lawrence down for long. A few days later, she was spotted onstage at the Comedy Cellar in NYC alongside Saturday Night Live stars Aidy Bryant and Vanessa Bayer as well as her pal, Amy Schumer.
"Last night we raised money for @safe_bae and had a blast. Thank you @vanessabayer @aidybryant @miacomedy @juddapatow @chrisrock @rachelfeinstein_ @bridgeteverett," Schumer captioned a photo from the night. "And Jennifer Lawrence, who even with the stomach flu, put me right on blast."
