'Who's your favourite character?' Lawrence asks Bridges. 'Does it rhyme with 'The Schmude'?'
Jennifer Lawrence got a little starstruck when she spotted Jeff Bridges in the press room at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend. Scroll down to watch their encounter, which begins around the 2min30 mark in the video player below.
In the video, Lawrence is seen running up to the Tron star, who is being interviewed on camera, before losing her nerve and turning the other way. This prompts laughter from members of the press, which distracts Bridges from his interview and compels him to beckon Lawrence over.
“Oh my God, I’m such a huge fan!” she gushes. “Oh my God, I’m so sorry!” The journalist interviewing Bridges then passes his microphone to Lawrence so she can ask the actor some questions of her own.
“Who’s your favourite character?,” she asks. “Does it rhyme with ‘The Shmude’?” Bridges and Lawrence proceed to have a brief but friendly chat before Lawrence says “Oh my God, that was so cool!” and walks off beaming.
The actress was appearing at Comic-Con to promote The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which debuted a new trailer at the festival, and X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Meanwhile, Bridges was in town to discuss his forthcoming fantasy film Seventh Son, which is due out early next year (2014).
