What Happened When Jennifer Lawrence Got Drunk In Budapest

Jennifer Lawrence drinking red wine on Late Night with Seth Meyers

Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence recently sat down for an amusing late-night interview with Seth Meyers. While sipping on red wine, the 27-year-old movie star chatted about personal drinking escapades. For example, Lawrence talked about how she got into a bar fight not long ago. She said it happened after work one day in Budapest, Hungary. Apparently, the scuffle occurred after a guy cussed her out for not taking a selfie with him. Shocked, Seth Meyers said Budapest seemed like a dangerous place to get into a bar fight, to which J. Law quipped,

For him!

Jennifer Lawrence proceeded to tell the Late Night with Seth Meyers audience what happened. Lawrence said a man approached her at the pub after she had had a bunch of drinks, and he asked if he could get a selfie with her to show his girlfriend. When Lawrence declined twice, the guy became frustrated and threw some F-bombs at her. The actress became overcome with emotion, grabbed him by the collar, and yelled at him for cussing her out. Then she grabbed beers from the table and dumped them on him.

The man hurried away from the table, but in his haste, he accidentally left behind his suitcase. Jennifer Lawrence realized it was the man's luggage, so she continued dumping beers on it until a friend stopped her---not because pouring beers on his belongings was, perhaps, a crummy thing to do, but because she was wasting everybody's drinks. Lawrence explained,

I started pouring beers all over his suitcase, and my friend Chris came up, grabbed me from behind, and he goes, 'Don't waste beer! Don't waste beer!' And I instantly relaxed. I was like, 'Of course. What was I thinking?'

Seth Meyers called the story "a good cautionary tale," most likely about messing with Jennifer Lawrence after she has had a few adult beverages. Meyers joked he hoped somebody got pictures of the Oscar winner going bonkers with the beers. Lawrence said,

My friend was in the bathroom, and he came back, and he was like, 'Did you guys see that guy? He was all wet and crying.'

Seth Meyers laughed and said,

Well, it serves him right.

The wild story came after Jennifer Lawrence had been talking about other goofy personal drinking tales. For example, Lawrence said she once spiked Michelle Pfeiffer's iced tea on the set of mother!. Unfortunately, Lawrence didn't explain that particular story in full. She got worried her alcohol-related stories were painting her in the wrong light, so she sidestepped the details of that anecdote and suggested she still a little hungover from the mother! premiere. Watch the witty banter:

Jennifer Lawrence's schedule might be busy, but she evidently is fitting some relaxation into her agenda. Still, as Seth Meyers hinted, you might not want to mess with Lawrence if you ever catch her kicking back with drinks at a pub.
