Jennifer Lawrence’s mum `stole` her Oscar ballot
London: Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she feared she would be booted out of the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences - the Hollywood group responsible for deciding who wins the industry’s top honours - after her mum stole her Oscar ballot as a joke.
The 22-year-old ‘The Hunger Games’ star though that she would be unceremoniously dumped from the prestigious role on the Academy’s board.
Recounting the story on The Ellen DeGeneres show, the actress revealed how much fun her mother, Karen, is having with her new found fame.
“Oh, she’s very happy, she has more fun than I do,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
“Recently, I’ve just gotten into the Academy, which is really exciting for me, that’s exciting for any actor.
“And I get a call from my mother while I was in England and she goes, “I did something hilarious”. And I’m thinking “What?”
“And she’s like, “I voted.” And I was like, “You voted for what?” “The Oscars.”
“And I was like, “You voted for the Oscars what do you mean?” And she goes “The ballot came here and I voted!”
“Because she thought I’d be like “That’s hilarious.”
“Fortunately, she did it wrong and mailed it back to herself, so I have got to do it again.
“I’m going to get kicked out of the Academy,” she said.
Luckily the vote didn’t go through, not just because it threatened to affect her spot within the Academy, but because the mother-daughter duo doesn’t share each other’s taste in films.
When asked if she agreed with how her mom voted, Jennifer was quick to respond “No. No I didn’t.”
