Jennifer Lawrence's In-Flight Performance Receives Mixed Reviews

Jennifer Lawrence is not a Philadelphia native, but she won an Oscar for playing one in Silver Linings Playbook. So I guess that was a good enough reason for flight attendants on a Sunday flight from New Orleans to Los Angeles to give her control of the airplane’s PA system.

In a video uploaded to Twitter, Lawrence can be seen grabbing the microphone—typically reserved for seat belt announcements and love songs to Drew Barrymore—and trying to start up an Eagles chant.


“This is not the pilot speaking. This is Jennifer Lawrence,” she says to the weary passengers. “It’s February 4, Super Bowl Sunday, and we all know what that means. Can I please get a ‘Fly, Eagles, Fly’?”

Despite her enthusiasm, the chant she begins doesn’t really take. As the camera pans across the cabin, we hear a few voices joining Lawrence’s pro-Eagles display, but the majority appear to be unamused, confused, or asleep.

This person is thinking, “Isn’t this an FAA violation? If not, can it be?”


This person is thinking, “I hated Passengers.”


But others appeared to enjoy the fun little moment! Here’s someone who’s probably thinking, “Awww, this is great! I love Emma Stone!”
