Passengers: Chris Pratt on Jennifer Lawrence's Cher Impression

Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t given up on Cher impression.

Last year, Lawrence’s Hunger Games costar Liam Hemsworth revealed that she would occasionally break out into a cover of Cher’s 1998 classic “Believe” while on set. Well, according to Chris Pratt, she carried that little idiosyncrasy over to the set of Passengers, the duo’s forthcoming space-romance movie.

On Thursday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Parks and Recreation star teases his costar about her impersonation tic.

“I didn’t realize I did that,” says Lawrence. “What an annoying tic! Oh my God, I got a wake-up call on Ellen. I can’t imagine how annoying that must be.”

Apparently, Lawrence kept doing it while Pratt was trying to memorize lines. “I was like, ‘I do. I believe in life after love. I get it,'” jokes Pratt.

Watch the video below to hear Lawrence’s Cher impression and Pratt talk about his “moob [man boob] sweat.”

Passengers, directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), stars the two charming actors as passengers on a luxury interstellar spaceship bound for a colony 120 years away. Unfortunately, a malfunction causes them to wake up 90 years too early. Trapped on the spaceship, they end up falling in love and discover that there’s a bigger problem with the ship.

The movie hits theaters Dec. 21. Check your local listings to find out when their episode of Ellen airs Thursday.
