It’s definitely one of the more fun non-panel moments to come out of Comic-Con 2013. While working the press line for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” Jennifer Lawrence spotted someone she’s a big fan of and had a complete freak out moment. That person is none other than fellow actor, Jeff Bridges.
The whole encounter was captured on tape so it could live forever, luckily, and Lawrence’s reaction is priceless. After an interview with Extra, Lawrence tries to approach Bridges, but her nerves for the better of her and she runs away.
However, Bridges sees the Oscar-winning actress and calls her over, giving her a moment to completely geek out. The reporter interviewing Bridges even hands over his microphone, so she could ask him questions. “What was your favorite movie that you’ve ever done?” she asks, “Who was your favorite character? Does it rhyme with The Shmude?” Obvious, Jen is a fan of “The Big Lebowski.”
For his part, Bridges talks about the movie “Out of the Furnace,” directed by Scott Cooper, who helmed “Crazy Heart.” The two then part ways, with Lawrence admitting, “Oh my god, this is so cool.”
She’s not wrong. Check out the moment below at about the 2:30 mark:
