Jennifer Lawrence storms out of prank interview

Jennifer Lawrence turned the tables on a pair of Internet pranksters by storming out of an awkward interview.

The Oscar-winning actress sat for a chat with Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla, the stars of online sketch show Smosh, to promote her new film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2.


The comedians set out to make the interview as awkward as possible, but Jennifer was in on the joke and she was fed witty responses by her co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, and a young fan, through an ear-piece.


The chat went from bad to worse as Ian made inappropriate jokes about subjects including California's wild fires, and even took off his shoes, and the actress suddenly ended the chat by ranting at the pair.


"Do you not feel like in a professional situation you should stay fully clothed out of respect for who you are interviewing?" she snapped. "I just feel like I have to do these interviews all day, in heels. I don't know why the shoe thing got to me, I'm like this (guy) thinks he can come in and take off his... shoes? I've been in heels for 12 hours."


"I'm being serious abut the lack of respect. I just feel like this is a waste of time," she added before walking out. "I feel like you're not really a professional. I'm sorry I'm done."


Liam and Josh then entered the room and scolded the comedians over their treatment of Jennifer, with Liam declaring, "I just think it's pretty disrespectful dude."


Jennifer then returned to confess she had pranked the jokers, adding, "I couldn't wait for it to be over... I didn't like being mean."
