Sometimes it’s hard to tell if a late night host is actually a fan of the person they’re interviewing. But that wasn’t the case with Jennifer Lawrence, who guest hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live! this past Thursday and got the chance to talk to her idol and new BFF, Kim Kardashian West.
In Lawrence’s words, she’s “obsessed” with Kardashian and her family “in a very, very healthy way,” which fortunately means she knew exactly which awkward, funny, and extremely person questions to ask the social media mogul during their thoroughly entertaining 20-minute conversation. There were dozens of great anecdotes, sound bites, and juicy revelations that came out of the interview, but here are just a few of our favourites.
Yup, she was basically the OG Mr. Robot. According to Kardashian, she discovered a way to hack into people’s voicemail inboxes and “got major dirt back in the day.” She’s now retired due to the fact that voicemails aren’t really a thing anymore, but she did use her hacking skills to find out that her ex was cheating on her. Lawrence asks Kardashian if she could, hypothetically, use her abilities to hack into a certain president’s Twitter account, but unfortunately Kardashian neither confirms nor denies the possibility of this actually happening.
Jennifer and Kim discuss Lawrence’s recent trip to the Kardashian matriarch’s home at the top of the interview—and apparently Kris got hammered. According to Kim this was the drunkest she had ever seen her mother get, and we luckily get to see just how plastered she and Lawrence were in a short clip of the two doing some sort of can-can. In case you’re wondering, Kim was drinking tea the whole time and remembers the entire out-of-control night.
First, Lawrence calls out Kim for subtly throwing shade at Khloe’s style (which Kim, to her credit, doesn’t deny). Later, Kim says that if she and her siblings were stuck on a deserted island, Khloe would probably kill her before she had a chance to kill Khloe. There obviously isn’t any real beef between the sisters, but it’s nice to see Kim admit that she and Khloe don’t always see eye-to-eye.
Kardashian wears socks to bed. She and West watch Family Feud together every night. West, like your grandmother and/or weird uncle, falls asleep in public at inopportune times. They may be one of Hollywood’s “it” couples, but it’s nice to know that Kimye aren’t just robots who power themselves down every night instead of falling asleep.
In honour of their newfound friendship, Lawrence took the liberty of drawing herself into one of Kardashian’s family Christmas photos. She also gifts Kardashian with a beautiful crayon portrait of the two of them, in which Lawrence is closing her eyes “in complete bliss” due to being in Kim’s presence.
After asking Kardashian if she still keeps in contact with any of her exes (apparently just one—he lives across the street from Kourtney, and Kim went to his wedding), Lawrence asks Kardashian to name her craziest ex. Kardashian refuses to answer, but Lawrence enthusiastically proclaims that it’s 100% Kris Humphries. And honestly, it’s hard to argue with her.
We’ve speculated about this for a couple of years, but now we have conformation. West wrote and performed a song called “Awesome” at the Met Gala in 2013 (just a few months before he and Kardashian got engaged) and Kardashian revealed that the song is, indeed, about her. While “Awesome” isn’t as lyrically strong as West’s other songs, the fact that he took the time to serenade his soon-to-be-fiancée is still pretty sweet.
Again, we kind of knew this one already (have you seen Kourtney and Kim’s Madonna and MJ costumes?) but now we know that the younger members of the Kardashian clan are following in their parents’ footsteps. Kardashian tells Lawrence that Kourtney’s son Mason dressed up as Quavo from Migos for Halloween while North and Saint West dressed up as Axl Rose and Slash. Kardashian also considered pulling a Kimmel and telling her kids that she stole their Halloween candy, but ultimately decided that she “didn’t have the heart to do it.”
