Jennifer Lawrence: I Tried To Dance With J. Lo And It Went Horribly Wrong

The adorably gaffe-prone actress has done it again.

Jennifer Lawrence went on the The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon Thursday and talked about the time she and host Jimmy Fallon tried to dance with Jennifer Lopez.

“We both saw J.Lo, and this was like 10 Jello shots in. And I’ve never done jello shots—I didn’t go to college,” Lawrence said about dancing at an event with Fallon. “So we were dancing and we J.Lo and were like, ‘Well, we gotta get J. Lo to dance!’ So I was like, ‘We’ll do a spin, and then we’ll go, ‘Dance with us!'”

The TV host and the 23-year-old actress planned a secret choreography to surprise Lopez together.

But while Lawrence did the routine, but Fallon stayed behind. “I do it, he’s gone and it’s just me looking at J.Lo going, ‘Dance with me!'” Lawrence said. “She was like, ‘I think I’m just gonna observe.’ You made me look like a freak in front of J.Lo! Do you know what that feels like?”
