How does one play football “pretty”?
Jennifer Lawrencerevealed that greatness as an Abercrombie & Fitch model was never quite in the stars of her destiny on a pre-taped New Year’s Eve episode of The Graham Norton Show. She explains to the show’s second guest Eddie Redmayne that while he may have found success as a brand representative for Burberry, her early photoshoot with A&F will never see the light of day.
“They wanted natural pictures so they made us play football on the beach,” says Lawrence. “The other models played football in a pretty way but not me! My face was bright red and I was sweaty with flaring nostrils.”
“One of the girls even yelled, ‘Get her away from me!’
When Lawrence’s agent asked Abercrombie why the photos hadn’t been used, their only response was to send the evidence directly to her. “You won’t see them in a store, for sure!” she confirms.
The Joy actress also revealed that she’s never had a good time on New Year’s Eve. “Everyone’s chasing a good time and it’s always a disappointment,” she says. “I plan on doing nothing and then if something lands in my lap…but I always end up drunk and disappointed.”
Lawrence shared the TMI tidbit of her nervous puking habits in the same episode. “When I get stressed and exhausted I just vomit,” she explained before admitting that she threw up on Madonna‘s porch. Coincidentally, Redmayne had been harboring a similar dirty secret of his own all along. “This is something I have never admitted to the world,” he began. “But I puked at Madonna’s party, too!”
