When it comes to late night talk shows, the formula can become a bit mundane. Typically a celebrity comes on the show, shares a small anecdote, and promotes their latest endeavor. However, when Jennifer Lawrence made her latest appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, they decided to change up the formula.
Initially there to promote her latest film, Red Sparrow, Colbert kicked off the interview by discussing how Lawrence has recently filled in for another late night host, Jimmy Kimmel. Because of this Lawrence shared the pressures she felt having to come up with questions to ask and that she was actually feeling a bit of pressure right then and there with Stephen.
At this point the typical late night formula broke when Colbert offered Lawrence a drink. He pulled out a hidden bottle of rum he kept behind his desk and the two shared a few glasses of rum together.
The mood during the interview quickly changed from a bit timid to loose and open. The two quickly began joking about past interviews, lawsuits they’ve had to deal with, and even both took their shoes off to become a bit more comfortable. Lawrence even went as far to joke, “Oh man, I should not have had this. I have the premiere for the movie tonight!”
While it wasn’t the typical interview, it was just as entertaining with many saying it was a breath of fresh air and showed that “celebrities are just like us!”
