Jennifer Lawrence‘s tips for getting through a marathon day? Pop Rocks, Slim Jims, and good old H2O!
As if the star wasn’t endearing enough already, Lawrence told Us Weekly on the Oscars red carpet Sunday, Mar. 2, that she was getting through her marathon day with the help of junk food.
“When I’m presenting, I’m going to pour them into my mouth,” Lawrence joked of the Pop Rocks she pulled out of her purse, along with other snacks. Wearing a cherry color Dior Haute Couture gown with peplum ruffles at her waists, she quipped that her experience on the red carpet was similar to that of the 2013 Oscars, where she took home a Best Actress Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.
“I’m just as hungry and my feet still hurt,” the blonde star told Us. “I’ve got a Slim Jim and protein bar… and Pop Rocks.”
Indeed, Lawrence’s experience was enhanced, yet again, with a clumsy moment — this year, the star stumbled over a cone on the red carpet. Lawrence, wearing $2 million worth of Neil Lane diamonds and jewels, was coming off a packed schedule even before arriving outside Dolby Theatre.
Styled by Rachel Zoe for the 2014 Oscars, the Hunger Games lead, 23, endured about two to three hours of head-to-toe preparations Sunday afternoon. An insider, who was with Lawrence as she prepped for the awards show in her Beverly Hills hotel, noted that at one point, boyfriend Nicholas Hoult handed the actress a glass of water. He wanted “to make sure she was hydrated before their long day,” the source said.
Joined by her parents Gary and Karen Lawrence, the couple took pictures together then headed for the Oscars at 2:15 p.m. Ahead of their departure, Lawrence turned to Hoult and told the actor to “eat lots of the chips and sandwiches.”
During the show, a source told Us that Lawrence “was passing out ginger chewy candies to Bradley Cooper and his [girlfriend Suki Waterhouse].” The eyewitness added that Hoult — who was affectionate with Lawrence for much of the evening — turned his girlfriend and told her, “I love you.”
