Jennifer Lawrence too swift for Taylor

It isn't an award show these days without a goofy punchline delivered by the ever reliable Jennifer Lawrence.

The star, who picked up a best supporting actress gong for her role in American Hustle at yesterday's Golden Globes, showed her continuing success hasn't gone to her head.

After last year giving legendary flirt Jack Nicholson a dose of his own medicine at the Oscars, yesterday she was threatening to push Taylor Swift down some stairs.

Lawrence sneaked up on the country musician as she was being interviewed by Ryan Seacrest, with pictures showing her pulling a funny face behind the singer's back.

When they came face to face, she said to Swift: "I was going to come in and push you down the stairs.''

Taylor replied: "People would love that,'' before forcing a less charitable sounding ''you're so funny'' out of her lips.

Awkward.
