Jennifer Lawrence's vacation alter ego Gail likes rum and swimming with sharks
Just when you thought Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t get any more fun, she introduces us to Gail.
Lawrence, who’s promoting her new spy thriller Red Sparrow, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss the new movie, but more importantly, to shed a little light on her drunk, vacation alter ego Gail. “I can’t go on vacation right now because I just can’t deal with Gail,” began the Oscar winner. “I need to rest before Gail.”
When pressed by DeGeneres (and plied with a fruity cocktail) on why Lawrence’s vacation drunk is different from her regular drunk, she explained it mostly comes down to rum. “The only time I drink rum is on vacation,” she said, before sharing a colorful anecdote about the kind of antics Gail likes to get into. “We went conch diving and they pull up the conch and the guy driving our boat goes, ‘look they all have little worms.’ I took it out of his hand and swallowed it.” And it doesn’t end there; the actress then just casually jumped into shark-infested water — in an adrenaline junkie moment. “I’m normally pretty cautious and then I get rum in me and I’m like, ‘Let’s arm wrestle!'”
