On the Late Show with David Letterman last night, smart-mouthed superstar Jennifer Lawrence explained her controversial acceptance speech for Best Actress - Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical for Silver Linings Playbook at Sunday's Golden Globes. "What does it say? I beat Meryl," is how she opened her speech, and she explained to Letterman that she was referencing the 1996 revenge comedy The First Wives Club. She didn't mention, though, that she was also referencing the truth, because she did, in fact, beat Meryl Streep, who was nominated for Hope Springs.
Lawrence talked about Twitter outrage in response to her speech, even though she isn't on Twitter (yeah right). "I wanted to make a public statement like, 'Uh, hey idiots, it's a quote.'" Well, she just did, so how do you like that, idiots?
Lawrence, whose endearing brusqueness makes her something like America's anti-sweetheart, would probably be really good at Twitter because she does not give a fuck.
