Jennifer Lawrence fantasising about Oscars

Jennifer Lawrence is looking forward to the wine at the Oscars and sitting alongside Bradley Cooper.

The 22-year-old is up for the best actress gong at this year's Academy Awards for her role as tough and temperamental sex addict Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook.

She joked that she is anticipating this weekend's Los Angeles awards ceremony as much as the rest of the world.

"I'm confused, happy and really excited. I'll be able to drink this time. I was only 20 last time [when nominated for Winter's Bone]. So hopefully I'll be more comfortable. Or at least drunk..." Jennifer told British magazine more! "I keep thinking about sitting at the table with David [O. Russell, director] and Bradley Cooper - and wine - and I just think it will be an incredible feeling."

Bradley is Jennifer’s co-star in the film and has scooped a best actor nod for his portrayal of Pat.

The star isn't afraid of discussing her enjoyment of alcohol, as she has a refreshingly open attitude to being interviewed. While her tendency to speak her mind can land her in hot water, she can't help but be outspoken.

"I just try to focus on work because I have no control over what comes out of my mouth," Jennifer admitted. "I would probably turn into a mute if I read what I had said."

Jennifer loves her profession despite the downsides, such as spending long periods of time on film sets.

"There are sacrifices with any job," she defensively explained. "It's hard sometimes [to be away from friend and family for long periods of time] it's obviously a lonely life, but it's still worth it."
