Jennifer Lawrence Posts Proof That She Doesn't Have 'Gross' Bathroom Habits (VIDEO)

jennifer lawrenceJust because Jennifer Lawrence is cool with gross-out humor doesn't mean she's actually gross, okay? And she wants to make sure everybody knows as much, after an MTV interview in which J.Law joked that she doesn't wash her hands after using the bathroom sparked some nasty rumors about the star's perhaps questionable hygiene habits -- and we mean nasty!

It all started out innocently enough, with J.Law being her quirky self, trying to liven up a typical interview about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2 (which she was giving to MTV's Josh Horowitz with costars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth). Sure, she resorted to some old-fashioned potty humor (literally) to get the job done, but so what? Except not everybody got the joke, and the interwebs exploded with all sorts of germ-ridden accusations about the 25-year-old actress.

And while Jennifer is generally the type to let this kind of thing roll off her back -- haters gonna hate, yada yada -- this was one rumor she just couldn't handle hearing. So finally, in a desperate attempt to clear the air (and her name), she posted a video documenting her highly conscientious bathroom habits to Facebook, along with the following explanation: 

I hate talking to the Internet but I can't get asked another question about my hygiene on this press tour. I told MTV didn't wash my hands after going to the bathroom because I was trying to gross out Josh and Liam and I ended up grossing out the world. Of course I wash my hands after going to the bathroom! (I can't believe I've put myself in a situation where I even have to say that.) Anyway with all the rumors I've ever heard about myself this is the one I really had to put to rest. -Jen

Haha, girl! We didn't think you were gross for a second. Check out her hilarious video here:

Okay, maybe the fact that she didn't know she was flushing a bidet and not a standard toilet sort of takes away from the legitimacy of her message, but we still believe her. (And we want that robe. So fluffy!)
