Jennifer Lawrence Calls Out Reporter For Using His Cell Phone At Golden Globes 2016
After winning Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for Joy at the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jennifer Lawrence answered some questions in press room.
As she took questions, she called out one foreign reporter for being on his phone.
“You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro,” she said. “You can’t do that, you’ve got to live in the now,” she said to the reporter.
The reporter, who could clearly be heard as foreign, was reading the English translation on his phone. He seemed to take the comment from Lawrence with a laugh and brushed it off. He then started to ask the 25-year-old actress how she sees herself for the upcoming Oscars, but she quickly shut him down.
“We’re at the Golden Globes. If you put your phone down, you’d know that,” Lawrence said, cutting him off.
Social media has blown up defending the reporter after Lawrence’s callout. One user tweeted “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.”

This isn’t the first phone comment Lawerence made that night. Earlier, while presenting with Amy Schumer, the two called someone out for being on their phone. “Please turn your phone off,” Schumer said. Lawrence added, “Can you please stop taking pictures?”
