Lawrence teases Spielberg at lunch

10 August 2012

Jennifer Lawrence joined in the schmoozing and joking with movie greats at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's annual summer luncheon.

The 21-year-old Oscar-nominated actress - who has shot to fame following her success in Winter's Bone and The Hunger Games - looked dazzling in a low-cut sequinned top and tight pencil skirt that showed off her curves.

Taking to the stage after Steven Spielberg, Jennifer joked: "I just had to follow Steven Spielberg. Or you opened for me, actually."

Jennifer and Spielberg joined stars including Harvey Weinstein, John Travolta, Bradley Cooper, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Black, Kerry Washington, Kelsey Grammer and Christina Hendricks at the glamorous event at the Beverly Hills Hotel, held by the where the group behind the Golden Globe Awards

The stars helped present 1.2 million dollars worth of grants from the association to organisations around the country that promote film education and preservation, and also introduced its officers for the coming year.

Comedian Jack Black also teased Lincoln biopic director Spielberg from the podium, saying: "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer looks incredible."

Spielberg thanked the organisation for its support of film-preservation efforts totalling 3.6 million dollars over the past 16 years. Film is "mankind's most original medium," he said.

Meanwhile, Jack and Dustin swapped snaps on their iPhones as Kerry and Christina posed for a photo.

"I am here to get nominated," Dustin joked as he took the stage. He told the audience he had just turned 75. "Dustin's 75 and he looks great; I'm 57 and I look like hell!" Frasier star Kelsey joked.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has given nearly 15 million dollars in grants over the past 18 years from profits generated by the Golden Globe Awards telecast. The 2013 Golden Globes are set for January 13.
