WATCH: Jennifer Lawrence sets the record straight on Meryl Streep
The young Hunger Games star caused a minor brouhaha when she seemed to diss veteran actress Meryl Streep at the Golden Globes

Jennifer Lawrence, the 22-year-old star of blockbuster film The Hunger Games, caused a bit of controversy at the Golden Globes ceremony on Sunday night, when she went onstage to accept her award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence seemed to show a lack of respect for a fellow nominee in the category — and not to mention veteran actress — Meryl Streep. "What does it say?" Lawrence asked as she took hold of her new trophy. "I beat Meryl," she seemed to say in a haughty voice not becoming of a relative Hollywood newcomer. But, alas, the young whipper-snapper meant no harm, as she explained to David Letterman on Tuesday: It was just a quote from a movie most people probably haven't seen since it was released in 1996.
