Jennifer Lawrence Says Sorry To Russell And Weinstein For Forgetting Them In Her Oscar Speech!

The star forgot to thank the director and producer of 'Silver Linings Playbook'


Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence may be this year's Best Actress but she sure did have a little trouble in remembering her acceptance speech. After praising her co-star Bradley Cooper, her parents and of course, the Academy, the Oscar star forgot to say thanks to her 'Silver Linings Playbook' director David O. Russell and producer Harvey Weinstein.

"In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life," she told Entertainment Weekly in a statement. She thanked Russell for "the most incredible experience of my life" and "for your genius, for your guidance, for teaching me things about myself and nurturing me to be a better actor."

Lawrence continued to say, "You have so much passion and such a bleeding heart, you believe not only in your films but what your films can do for people, and that is the most important thing that I have learned from you."

She then went on to express her gratitude to Weinstein, "You championed this movie and its story from early days. Your passion and unyielding support gave this film the opportunity to thrive and touch so many people."

"I will never be able to forgive myself for such a brain fart, but I hope that you both can," she concluded of her mistake.

"Obviously it was not on purpose, I couldn't remember what I had already said and my mind went completely blank -- your brain does funny things during the most overwhelming moment of your life!"

After tripping on the stage and having the likes of Jack Nicholson hit on you - we're sure all is forgiven Lawrence!
