Jennifer Lawrence Gave Oscar To Parents, Felt ‘Awkward’ About It

What happened to Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar? The golden statuette representing the highest recognition an actor in film can hope for is collecting dust at her parents’ house, because she felt “awkward” having it.

Lawrence won the Oscar for her nuanced performance in Silver Linings Playbook, but honestly just didn’t like having it in her place when she would invite her friends over. She says that she moved it around several times, even putting it out of sight in a hallway near her bathroom.

Her mother, Karen, eventually did what moms do and took the trophy so it could have a place of proper honor in the family’s Kentucky home.

“My parents took it back to Kentucky, ’cause I felt odd having it, like, on display in my house,” Lawrence told Access Hollywood.

“If anybody’s coming over to my house, I didn’t want them to remember that. Just kind of puts a weird energy out. I put it in the hallway towards the bathroom, and my mom was like, ‘I’m taking it. It shouldn’t be here’. And now it’s on a piano in Kentucky!”

Not exactly refrigerator art, but one feels for Lawrence’s “long-suffering” mother.

Even though she is happy and thankful for the Oscar, she admitted to an audience at Comic-Con over the weekend that she hasn’t found a way to cope with all of the attention she gets during award season.

“It was actually something I was going through while filming ‘The Hunger Games’ — my first kind of round of [Oscar season] during ‘Winter’s Bone,'” she said.

“It was kind of this new world where I was wearing these dresses where I don’t look like myself. I don’t feel like myself. I still don’t.”
