“Winter’s Bone” star Jennifer Lawrence recently gave an interview with Rolling Stone, in which she talks about being a tomboy growing up (“I was so dykey”), having the nickname “Nitro” and how as a Kentucky native living in Los Angeles, “little redneck things still come out.” Like what, the magazine asks.
“I’m attracted to my brother. Stuff like that.”
Now this might very well turn into a big internet hullabaloo. But we suspect that Lawrence was being her usual dry self and making a joke. Though she may want to remember that being dry in print and being dry in person come across two very different ways.
For the record, Jennifer does have two brothers, Ben and Blaine, both older. We have a feeling she is not attracted to either one of them. Lawrence is up for the 2010 Best Actress Academy Award for her turn as the teenage daughter of a meth cooker trying to take care of her younger siblings. The Oscars air live Sunday, Feb. 27 on ABC.
