Jack Nicholson and Jennifer Lawrence met at the Oscars on Sunday after the young Hollywood star was crowned Best Actress for her performance in "Silver Linings Playbook."
Lawrence was having an interview with "Good Morning America" co-host George Stephanopoulos, with numerous Hollywood stars mingling in the background, when Nicholson suddenly came over and interrupted the interview.
Lawrence, her usual bubbly self, appeared star struck, and made numerous shocked expressions that she was meeting the acting legend.
When Nicholson came over, Lawrence was just described her Academy Award win, saying: "I feel like I can't even remember. It's kind of an insane moment and it was just really exciting. It was really just shocking. It was the first time I've ever felt, like, actual shock."
The suddenly the 75 year old Hollywood veteran came over to compliment the actress despite the interview still ongoing. Nicholson said, "You did such a beautiful job. I didn't mean to cross into your interview but I had to congratulate you."
Lawrence, obviously taken aback at the huge compliment from the actor, joked back at him, "Yea, you're being really rude."
The 22 year old then threw back a compliment at Nicholson, saying how she loved all his movies.
He quickly disappeared in the background again and Lawrence can be seen in the video recording turning back to George Stephanopoulo and mouthing, "Oh my God!" as she put both her hands over her face in a shocked expression.
She then quietly says to the "Good Morning America" man, "Is he still there?"
To which Nicholson suddenly pops back up again and says, "I'll be waiting."
Lawrence has been open in her admissions over the past few years about how she cannot believe how her career has developed, and she has said on numerous occasions how she has been starstruck meeting Hollywood's biggest actors and actresses.
She had never met Nicholson before, and was obviously experiencing another one of those starstruck moments. After the meeting with Nicholson she also had a brief exchange with Ben Affleck's wife, Jennifer Garner.
However, at the end of the video exchange, which has now gone viral, the actress again joked, "This is my life now. 'Hey Jack, hey Jennifer, how are you?'"
