Jennifer Lawrence Helps a Fan With Muscular Dystrophy Pull Off Awkward Interview Prank
Jennifer Lawrence proved her sense of humor yet again by teaming up with a fan with muscular dystrophy to give online pranksters Smosh a taste of their own medicine.
With help from her Hunger Games co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, the actress and youngster Dylan Miceli-Nelson executed their prank seamlessly, all while raising awareness for muscular dystrophy.
Smosh's Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox, who regularly trick celebrities, were hoping to give Lawrence her most awkward interview yet - but had no idea she was planning to turn the tables.
With Hutcherson, Hemsworth and Miceli-Nelson giving her instructions through an ear piece, she succeeded in making her interviewer, Hecox, squirm.
During the uncomfortable eight-minute clip, she shoots Nerf arrows at his face, turns up her nose when he takes off his shoes and eventually storms out, saying: "I'm sorry, I feel like you’re not really a professional."
And it only gets more awkward when Hemsworth and Hutcherson walk into the room to demand to know what happened.
Miceli-Nelson, who is hailed as the hero of the prank, lives with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the most common form of muscular dystrophy, which leads to progressive muscle weakness.
The stunt was part of Defy Media's "pranks for good" initiative, named "Prank It FWD." For every thousand views of a video in the initiative and ever social media share, Defy will donate $1 to not-for-profit organization DoSomething.org.
