Media professionals thought the questions asked at Jennifer Lawrence’s press conference were asinine. “The fall on the way to the stage… and asking what happened. Seriously?

Many believe that Jennifer Lawrence will require skillful handling during interviews, and few are up to the task. “We’re going to have to hire someone with a brain, that’s intimidating. We usually just hire people who have nice abs, or a fantastic ass,” said Mario Lopez.
