Celebrity Dachshund Watch: Jennifer Lawrence Locked in Basement With Dachshunds
Thanks so much to our friend Clara and her boy 'Oscar' from Portugal for writing in about actress Jennifer Lawrence's appearance on Tuesday's David Letterman. Ms. Lawrence is poised to hit super-stardom with today's release of the movie Hunger Games. Or maybe she's poised to hit super-stardom because of this story of her, her brothers, and their three Dachshunds. The whole interview is entertaining, but the Dachshund bits start at about 7 minutes in. Watch it quick before "the man" takes it down. Via People magazine:
The actress, who stars in the highly anticipated film adaptation of the dystopian teen trilogy about a televised battle to the death, told David Letterman on the Late Show that her two older brothers roughhoused with her growing up.
"I've got scars all over my body," she said. "The best part – they would fight each other over who could fight me."
There was one ritual in particular that was especially agonizing. "When I was doing the gymnastics phase, they used to pin my feet back behind my head – I can't do this anymore – and then they would get our dachshunds and put peanut butter all over my face," she explained. "We had three dachshunds and then the dogs would do this [go crazy licking]. And then they'd shut the door, lock me in the basement with dachshunds."
"And now – karma! – I go on talk shows and tell everybody," she added. "I win!"
Letterman, who feigned a therapy session throughout the interview, said, "I'm going to make two calls, Jennifer. The first one will be to Amnesty International, and the second one will be to Dick Cheney. I think we have something here. It might replace water boarding, that little dachshund deal."
