Jennifer Lawrence beautifully filled in for Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday, when her monologue jokes and delivery rivaled the real thing.
“As I was getting ready for the show this afternoon, I suddenly got very nervous about hosting,” Lawrence set up early. “But then I remembered the advice my mom gave me about overcoming stage fright. So, I drank an entire bottle of chardonnay and I feel much better.”
And then there was this: “I was so excited to do this. I told the producers, ‘I don’t even want any money for this.’ And they said, ‘No, Jennifer, we insist on paying you… 29 percent less than the male guest hosts.'”
On the Dodgers’ Wednesday World Series Game 7 loss, J Law quipped: “People in Los Angeles haven’t been this disappointed with a pitcher since Gwyneth Paltrow made quinoa lemonade.”
That one is a bit of a thinker, but it’s worth it.
Here’s one that is a bit easier, but still strong: “Congratulations to the Astros. They not only won the championship, but a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn down a visit to the White House.”
Later, Lawrence teased the evening’s upcoming panel interview with her “utter obsession, Lord Jesus God” Kim Kardashian West.
“I drank five martinis and ended up naked in her closet,” the “Hunger Games” star said of a recent dinner party at Kardashian Family matriarch Kris Jenner’s house. “I’m dead serious.”
