Perhaps it was the fact that she starred in one of 2010′s bleakest movies or that while it wasn’t the best imitation, her heart was in the right place. Either way, “Winter’s Bone” star Jennifer Lawrence won us, and the Internet over, with her take own take on Snooki.
MTV News got a hold of the actress at the 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards (where she was a double nominee that evening) to talk about her imitation heard ’round the world (wide web) and see if she’d be game to show off some more of her “Jersey Shore” skills.
“Somebody came up to me today and was like, ‘I saw you online doing a Snooki impersonation!’” Jennifer told MTV, adding that she soon remembered that it was our own Josh Horowitz who was the culprit behind the vid!
When asked if she wanted to perhaps try her hand at a J-WOWW or DJ Pauly D impression, Jennifer cocked her body back, as if to get into a J-WOWW stance, but soon stopped herself. “No!” she said with a laugh, realizing, “Cause you’re gonna put it on the Internet!”
Still, Jennifer noticed she was ready to let her inner J-WOWW fly as she said, “I almost did! Did you see my shoulders go back? I got so close. I almost did it!”
The acclaimed up-and-comer, who may or may not do her next “Jersey Shore” impersonation at this Sunday’s Golden Globes (c’mon, please!), seemed pretty bummed not to share her gift with the world once again, as she declared, “I’m so tempted!”
