And she planned to do so with a large glass of wine. Or by spending time with her loved ones.
“I need to catch up on my drinking. I think that’s why I was manic – I normally have a glass of wine,” Lawrence, 23, says, before backpedaling.
“That’s not a good answer. Tonight I’m going to celebrate with my friends and family.”
Joking aside, Lawrence, who stunned in a strapless white Dior Haute Couture gown, is hopeful her continued success in the spotlight will serve as an inspiration for her younger female fans.
“Be strong, don’t be a follower. Do the right thing. If you have the choice to do the right thing or the wrong thing, the right way is always the best,” she says in a message to girls.
Feeling “really overwhelmed” by her big win, the actress shared her own secret to staying grounded in the industry, despite her growing list of achievements.
“I have a good group of friends that I’ve had for a really long time. We all like doing the same thing, which is not what the tabloids like writing about,” Lawrence said.
She adds, “I’ve got an amazing family and I’m just always busy working. I don’t have time to get into trouble!”
Other than the occasional photobomb, of course.
