Jennifer Lawrence Has a Wild Rum-Drinking Vacation Alter Ego Named Gail

What we'd give to hang out with this version of the Red Sparrow star drunk off rum on a tropical island...

If you saw the pictures of Jennifer Lawrence climbing over chairs at the Oscars clutching her wine… you know the girl can be a lot of fun at a party when booze is involved.

But what about when that alcohol is rum, specifically, and Lawrence is on vacation? Well, it doesn’t always go so well. In fact, she revealed on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she becomes a whole other person in scenarios like that — a person named "Gail" — and it’s not necessarily a good thing.

“I think my girlfriends probably named [my alter ago] Gail, just by the way I look — it's a very specific drunk, too. It’s not just every time I’m drunk I turn into this… I think she’s some sort of tortoise gambler,” she said. “I don’t always turn into this masculine alter ego that like jumps into shark-ridden waters just to make my friends laugh. It’s not every time, I think it might be rum... The only time I drink rum is on vacation.”

Obviously DeGeneres needed to hear more, so she pressed — after plying Lawrence with some rum! ("I really can't," she feigned, before demurring instantly.) "So you become braver..." DeGeneres prompted.

And Lawrence spilled this fact about a recent trip: “We went conch diving, pull up the conch and the guy driving our boat goes, ‘Look they all have little worms!’ I took it out of his hand and swallowed it and then pulled the worms out of all the conchs and swallowed all the worms. Some of my friends are kind of laughing but they’re like, ‘Hello? Hello?’ and then we pull up and he’s like, ‘and this is where the fisherman clean all the fish out so there’s all these sharks out,’ and I’m like, ‘Sack!’ And just jumped in! Everyone’s like, 'Someone get her some water and coffee — she’s gonna die!'”

If you’re starting to feel a bit worried for Lawrence and her rum-drunk vacation antics — fear not. She assured Ellen it’s hardly typical. “I’m normally pretty cautious,” she says, “and then I get rum in me and I’m like... let’s arm wrestle!"
