Participating in the last of her promotional “Hunger Games” “crapfests,” the refreshingly anti-diet, pro-pants-pooping actress Jennifer Lawrence appeared on “The Daily Show” and ended up mocking host Jon Stewart (much to the host’s delight).

“I don’t prepare for these very well,” confessed Stewart, after comparing Lawrence to a young Helen Mirren.

Instead of laughing at the joke and moving on, like most celebrities would have done, Lawrence went for it. “I was actually — your producers and everybody involved in this show tells everyone that you don’t,” she said. “They’re like, ‘He’s not really going to know a lot about the movie, or a lot about you, he’s not going to ask you … normally you have a pre-interview and you go over like bullet points of things we want to touch on. They’re like, ‘No, no, no you guys are just going to talk, he’s probably not going to ask you anything about the movie. He might not ask you anything.”

“They told me not to look at your nipples,” she added, reducing the host to a fit of chuckles.

And somehow, Stewart became the “weird” one for suggesting she looks like Helen Mirren. “You are so weird!” exclaimed the actress.

Well played, Jennifer Lawrence.
