Party hardy! Jennifer Lawrence brought her best friend Laura Simpson to the 86th Academy Awards back in March, and it turns out that the two troublemakers had a little too much fun during the show. The American Hustle star’s pre-taped appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers aired Wednesday, May 21, confirming what Us Weekly reported last month: She drank, she puked, and Miley Cyrus judged.
Lawrence said the main culprit behind her boozy (and somewhat blurry!) night out was her BFF. “I took her and she was a terrible influence on me,” Lawrence told Meyers. “She was like, ‘Meet me at the bar.’ So I snuck out and I was like, ‘Oh, my god!’ I can’t do this!’ And she was like, ‘You can do whatever you want!'” (The Dolby Theatre, where the 2014 Oscars was held, has a lounge outside the auditorium where stars like Julia Roberts and Cate Blanchett periodically grabbed drinks throughout the ceremony.)
“We ran into Brad Pitt,” the Hunger Games star continued, “and she was like, ‘Get Brad Pitt over here!’ and I was like, ‘I can’t do that!’ And she was like, ‘Yes, you can!'” So what was a girl to do? “I just went, ‘Hey Brad Pitt!'” Lawrence recalled. “He came over. He smelled like sandalwood. It was unbelievable!”
After tripping (again) on the red carpet and joining in on a star-studded selfie that evening, Lawrence decided to continue raging. “I’ve never gone out after Golden Globes or Oscars or anything. I’m just so sick of people by that point,” she joked. “But this time I was like, ‘I’m going out.’ And I puked… all over.”
“There’s this big fancy party, this Guy Oseary and Madonna party—if you get invited you’re, like, super important,” she explained. “And I puked on his porch. I was in such bad condition and I look behind me and Miley Cyrus is looking at me like, ‘Get it together!'”
Simpson, for her part, chronicled her incredible night out at the 2014 Oscars in a detailed blog post. “Some guy picks up my purse that had fallen off my seat and I say ‘Thank you…Channing Tatum,'” J-Law’s bestie wrote. Jennifer Garner helped Simpson when her dress got caught and a then-pregnant Kerry Washington asked if she could eat her Slim Jim.
