Woefully Unprepared Jon Stewart Compares Jennifer Lawrence to Young Helen Mirren, Blows No One's Mind

Jennifer Lawrence ended her Catching Fire press tour last night on The Daily Show, and as is often the case when it comes to his celebrity interviews, Jon Stewart didn’t bother to prepare (it works for him). In fact, Stewart didn’t really even seem to know what the Hunger Games movies were about, although he did note his flabbergastation (new word!) with the Breaking News Alert on CNN notifying him that Lawrence had had her hair cut (Lawrence also noted it was the weirdest thing that had ever happened to her, as well).

It’s all a very charming, daffy interview, as they all are with Jennifer Lawrence, but I was particularly tickled by the notion that Jon Stewart had to compare Lawrence with a young Helen Mirren, suggesting that the comparison would blow Lawrence’s mind. It did not. In fact, I don’t think anyone has ever considered the comparison. It’s not even worth consideration. But the attempt was cute, as was Lawrence’s typical transparency, in revealing that everyone on the The Daily Show staff had come up to her at some point to tell her that Jon Stewart wouldn’t’ prepare any questions, probably wouldn’t talk about the movie, and would be woefully unprepared. They then offered her tequila.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
