At a post-show press junket, Lawrence interrupted one reporter after he started to ask a question about her win, chastising him for looking at his phone: “You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro,” she said, literally wagging a finger at him. “You can’t do that. You have to live in the now.”
Earlier in the night, while previewing their nominated movies, she and best friend Amy Schumer called out someone for being on his or her phone and taking pictures. But the backstage incident also prompted a defense of the international reporter, who many said was reportedly reading a translation of a question off his phone. This is an awards show tied to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, after all.
Jennifer Lawrence is very young and I’m pretty sure when she’s older she’ll distinguish between “rude” and “English as a second language.”

But then a reporter who was also there said that’s not what happened at all.
Then he asked about the Oscars when we were at the Golden Globes. Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t rude at all. She just wanted him to be present.

Others called out the hypocrisy of the situation.
Jennifer Lawrence criticising a guy for living life behind a screen seems dumb for someone who’s just won an award for being in a movie

Lawrence pre-empted another reporter’s question, too.
The reporter “bro” she called out has not yet been identified. Meanwhile, Mel Gibson, an actor who has said some extremely sexist, racist, and anti-Semitic things, was greeted with laughs and applause last night. Hollywood’s short memory may forgive Lawrence before we know it.
