Video: Jennifer Lawrence Loses It When Reporters Spoil 'Homeland' For Her
In today's "Jennifer Lawrence continues to be awkward/adorable" news, two reporters for Access Hollywood spoiled "Homeland" for her in front of Sgt. Brody himself.
It all starts when Lawrence, on the red carpet for last Saturday's SAG Awards, comes in close proximity to Damian Lewis, the star of the Showtime program and object of Lawrence's fangirl nervousness. Sensing another impending J Law overload of cute, the reporters introduce the two actors, which is as adorable as one might expect.
The clip then takes a much more awkward turn. The two reporters let out a huge spoiler for season three (We won't spell it out here in case you haven't seen it yet, but please exercise caution when you watch the clip). Lawrence is stunned. Lewis is shocked. The reporters, realizing the gravity of their error, express a mixture of awkward silence and nervous laughter. The reporters then make it worse by trying to say that the spoiler was a joke, in what can only be described as a terrible attempt at damage control.
But the damage had been done, and Lawrence looked like she was on the verge of tears.
"I can't believe you did that," Lawrence scolds. "I don't even know what to say."
The entire clip is below. Spoilers abound.
