Jennifer Lawrence’s relatable personality and tell-it-like-it-is outspokenness usually put people at ease. But the Mother! actress had a fangirl freakout moment while filling in as a guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night with guest Kim Kardashian West that took a turn for the awkward… and fast.
Early on, Lawrence admitted that she’s been obsessed with the Kardashians for a decade, and immediately began grilling the mother of two on all the most hard-hitting questions, from her thoughts on brother Rob Kardashian’s ex, Chyna (she pleaded the fifth with respect to baby Dream), to her relationship with OJ Simpson (hint: It’s non-existent).
The most awkward moment of all, however, came when she dared to mention the rumored surrogacy Kardashian West has been keeping mum about. “How did you pick your surrogate, and why didn’t you ask me?” she quipped, adding, “Was I even in the conversation?” when Kardashian West gave pause.
While the tension was palpable, the KUWTK star handled it like a pro, taking a moment to think before coyly responding, “I’ll know if I do it again.”
Still, there were some more light-hearted moments too, particularly with regard to her and hubby Kanye West’s relationship, which the Oscar-winner dissected thoroughly, revealing whether her and West fart in front of each other (“I don’t fart”), his weirdest habit is (falling asleep ANYWHERE, including at meetings and in restaurants), and just how normal their lives are. “We watch Family Feud every night before we fall asleep.” (Um, CUTE.)
She also dished on which sister she’d keep around if she’d been stranded on a desert island and needed to kill all but one (“It might be Khloé because I feel like she’ll kill me,”) and whether or not she keeps in contact with any of her exes (just the one that lives across the street from sister Kourtney. “We never really talk, but, the nicest family,” she said. “I went to his wedding.”).
Check out the 18-minute (!!) long grill sesh in all its awkward, hilarious glory below.
