It's not always clear when Jennifer Lawrence is telling the truth.
In fact, when she appeared on NBC's The Tonight Show Monday, Lawrence recalled once lying to a pool of reporters during her first-ever press junket for the 2008 movie The Burning Plain. At the time, director Guillermo Arriaga and co-star Charlize Theron joined the newbie actress at the event. "Kim Basinger wasn't there. We were doing an international press conference and somebody said, 'Where is Kim Basinger?' I just leaned in the microphone and was like, 'You didn't hear? Kim died.' There was like a beat while it got translated and then it was [mayhem]," she said. "I got ripped off the stage and thrown into media training, which is hilarious because I was like Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady. They're like, 'Don't sit like that! Don't talk like that!' Ah!"
Lawrence joked, "Obviously, it didn't take."
As an example of her interview style, the X-Men: Apocalypse actress told Jimmy Fallon, "My publicist told me a week ago, 'Stop telling people that they don't have to see X-Men.' I'm always like, 'I don't know. You know, if it feels right. No pressure. See it, don't see it—I don't care.'"
Later in the show, Lawrence and Fallon played "True Confessions" with HBO's John Oliver. "In front of us, we have two envelopes containing confessions," the host explained to his guests. "In one of the envelopes is something that actually happened to us in real life. In the second envelope is a lie. Once you've read your confession, the other two players have 60 seconds to interrogate you and then they each have to guess whether you're lying or telling the truth."
