It's just so darn cute when celebrities bring their parents along to award shows and Jennifer Lawrence is just so darn cute no matter what she does. Add parents and you have adorable overload. For the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards show happening tonight, J. Law brought along parents Karen and Gary who came from Kentucky to hit the LA red carpet.
Dad Gary gushed about his 23-year-old Hunger Games star daughter, "I'm so proud. I feel like I've got the Secretariat in the Derby." J. Law's mom, however, took things to a whole other level. There were tears, and more tears, and she couldn't stop crying.
"I just can't stop crying," Karen said. "I don't have anything to say because we'll embarrass her. We always do!" But then she went on with tears in her eyes:
I'm so proud because she's remained who she is throughout this whole process and it hasn't changed her. That's what I'm proud of. I don't care whether she wins or loses necessarily, but because she won and she's stayed strong and true to herself, that's what makes me proud.
"Mom, stop crying," Jennifer laughed, once again covering her face. "God, this is embarrassing."
How sweet is this? Her parents have such pride -- as they should -- and we know straight from her mom's mouth that Jennifer is as genuine as we hoped she'd be. As for Jennifer's obvious discomfort with her parent's emotions ... I think it's only natural. Even though she's 23, I'm way older and my parents still embarrass me ... in the best way possible.
What do you think of how Jennifer's parents reacted on the red carpet? Do your parents still embarrass you?
