Best Actress Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence should have been all smiles after winning her category at Sunday’s (February 25th) Academy Awards but photographers backstage caught a much different reaction than expected. As Jennifer made her way to the press room stage to take questions, she was seen scowling at someone off stage and giving them the middle finger.
It is unclear what occurred or who exactly rubbed the 22-year-old star the wrong way but Digital Spy is suggesting that it was directed at a photographer.
