As Jennifer Lawrence has no problem (frequently) reminding us, she’s a normal tripping, dancing, photobombing, self-doubting human just like the rest of us. Being a non-robotic movie star, then, involves getting the occasional case of hiccups—a bodily function that seems to afflict J-Law quite often.
At the celebrity-filled Vanity Fair Cannes Film Festival party on Saturday, our friends at Vulture caught Lawrence in the midst of a crippling hiccup spell. Here’s what happened: a hiccuping Lawrence cried out, "Seriously, I need some water now," which prompted a bevy of attentive Lionsgate handlers to seek out some H20. Lawrence explained: "The only thing that ever works for getting rid of hiccups for me is when I drink water and raise my arms over my head and lower them very slowly."
As the story goes, a third-full glass Evian bottle was presented and passed hand to hand through the crowd; it eventually landed with Lawrence’s Hunger Games co-star and general best bud Josh Hutcherson. Apparently, he knew what to do. Says Vulture: "He raised the bottle to her lips. Lawrence put her arms up straight, and the ritual began."
There you have it, folks. The next time you get a mean case of the hiccups, you know what to do: grab a bottle of water and your own personal Hutcherson, and you’re in business.
