‘I had a ton of sex!’ Pregnant Jennifer Lawrence jokes about how she spent her three-year hiatus from acting… before admitting her time off was filled with ‘cooking and cleaning’


Jennifer Lawrence joked that she had a ‘ton of sex’ after taking a break from acting. 

The pregnant actress, 31, who is married to Cooke Maroney, appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday to promote her new movie Don’t Look Up, where she was uncharacteristically candid and joked about her sex life, 

She was showcasing her bump in a fitted polka dot dress as she chatted about enjoying plenty of romps during her three year hiatus from the spotlight, before Stephen, 57, regaled her boozy last appearance on the show.

Stephen asked: ‘What did you do? Did you have fun? What did you do for the last three years?’, before Jennifer gave a nod to her imminent arrival and babymaking by cradling her bimp and joking: ‘I just had a ton of sex’. 

He replied: ‘Good for you. Good for you’. Jennifer swiftly corrected: ‘I’m joking. Um, I cooked a little. The pandemic happened and then I cooked and I cleaned a lot’. 

Stephen asked if she took a permanent break from acting what her backup plan would be, to which she replied: ‘I think I would be a really good housekeeper. No, I really do. I make a mess, but I’m really good at cleaning it up. I can attack a mess.’

The Oscar-winning actress was on the CBS show promoting her new sci-fi black comedy Don’t Look Up that also stars Leondardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Timothee Chalamet and Ariana Grande.

Jennifer said they filmed with COVID-19 protocols in place and she lost a veneer exposing a ‘fang’.

‘I lost that and I couldn’t go to the dentist because of Covid,’ said Jennifer, who added that computer-generated special effects were used to put a tooth in her mouth. ‘Thank god for Netflix money,’ she said.

Jennifer said the crew ‘off-handedly’ called Oscar-winner Meryl, 72, ‘the GOAT’ during production.

‘We were doing a photoshoot and I said, something like ”Goat” and Meryl kind of said, ”Yeah, that’s right just tell the old goat where to go.” And I was like, ”Meryl, you know goat means Greatest Of All Time” and she was like, ”Oh!”,’ Jennifer recalled.

‘I said, ”We haven’t just been calling you goat”,’ Jennifer said.

Don’t Look Up will have a limited release in theaters on Friday followed by a release on Netflix on December 24.
