While talking about her recent hospital visit, Jennifer Lawrence said Wednesday she remembers convincing her doctor to watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after awaking from the administered anesthesia.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star relayed details of her medical scare when she was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman.
The 23-year-old skipped the press line at the Los Angeles premiere of Catching Fire on Monday, Nov. 18, because she was not feeling well. Lawrence checked into the hospital that night and told Letterman, "I thought I had an ulcer and it turns out it was a fulcer."
"I had this really bad pain for like three weeks and you can only s*** your pants so many times a day before you, like, have to go to the emergency room," she explained, before describing a procedure she had done. "I just did this this thing yesterday called an endoscop-something where they put me to sleep."
Talking about her experience of going under anesthesia, the Oscar winner remembers the nurse telling her to think of happy thoughts and places.
"The last thing I said was, 'I'm paralyzed!' and just passed out," she told the talk show host.
When she woke up, she told the nurse she dreamed of a nuclear bomb going off. Following that, she started talking to the medical staff about reality television.
"The first lucid conversation I remember having was about the Kardashians," Lawrence said, "and then I put my hand on the anesthesiologists chest and said, 'Will you please just promise me something? Will you promise me you'll watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?' "
Lawrence said doctors could not figure out the ailment that had her rush to the hospital. They checked her upper intestine, but it was fine.
"They say it's either in my lower intestine or in my mind," she admitted.
Lawrence's film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, releases in theaters Friday, Nov. 22.
