SHOW BITS: Jennifer Lawrence bleeped again
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - It’s always fun to hear what Jennifer Lawrence has to say _ even if you have to lip read because she’s being bleeped.
The bleeping started early for the charmingly blunt Lawrence, a best actress nominee for “Silver Linings Playbook,” as ABC silenced her cheeky red carpet response to actress Kristin Chenoweth.
The two were bonding over “Dance Moms,” the Lifetime reality series, when Lawrence asked Chenoweth if she liked it too.
Chenoweth: “Is the pope Catholic?”
Lawrence: “… ?” (We can’t print her reply here, but the reference was to something a bear does in the woods.)
And the night, as they say, was still very young. Stay tuned!

Joaquin Phoenix didn’t waste any time getting into the Dolby Theatre, and the Oscar-nominated actor’s dash across the red carpet didn’t go unnoticed.
Red carpet host Chris Connelly heckled Phoenix, who has criticized the awards show, as he rushed by, saying he was setting new speed records.
Connelly then added, “You should be at the (NFL) combine,” a reference to the athletic tests NFL recruits go through.
